Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations

img_4278Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Kiehl’s store on Michigan Avenue for a little skin R&R. Once I hit my 30’s, I’ve become far more aware of the products I use on my skin and the benefits they provide me in the long run. I’m fairly religious about my routine and stick to what works for my skin – healthy skin is an easy way to slow down the aging process. I actually prayed for the day for when I turned 30 in the hopes that I’d never have to tackle another pimple. No one likes being wrong, but boy was I wrong! And let me tell you, when you are 30 a pimple is the least of your worries! Lets talk about large pores, deep set wrinkles and sagging skin! With all that on my mind, I headed to Kiehl’s to have the team build me my own Apothecary Preparations – it’s a personalized skincare product that tends to my needs and skin concerns.

A little background on the new personalized product collection – inspired by 165 years of apothecary expertise, Kiehl’s create the Apothecary Preparations, a personalized skincare featuring potent concentrates that address an individual’s unique skin concerns. The personalized, in-store-only service is available now at any Kiehl’s store. It’s innovative formula is comprised of Kiehl’s Skin Strengthening Concentrate, plus two, individually selected Targeted Complexes. Customers receive a free consultation in order to diagnose their skin and determine the best personalized formula for your skin!img_4250
When I went in for my personal consultation the specialist took a skin hydration test and I about hit the floor. The average person has roughly 50% hydration levels in their skin – I had 32% ! AH!! I blame the heat in LA and the lack of water for that one! She took me through a book of skin types and textures to determine where my skin lies on the scales.

From there I had the option to select two targeted complexes – I chose pores and anti-aging. The large pores on my skin have always been a huge issue for me and they are caused by my oily skin, WHICH actually prevents wrinkles. We cant have it all, but we can try. I’ve been using the product for just a about a week and I am so pleased with the results already! Head to your Kiehl’s to build your personalized Apothecary Preparations,
