Kiehl's new Photo-Age Deep-Action Exfoliating Cleanser ($22) is one of four new Photo-Age products offered by Kiehl's to un-do ultraviolet (UV) damage. The exfoliating cleanser breaks apart surface discoloration and stimulates cells to restore fresh, even-toned skin. It's a very creamy cleanser that contains gently rounded scrub grains.
Relying on their extensive pharmaceutical expertise and botanical knowledge, Kiehl’s has introduced a line called Dermatologist Solutions Photo-Age Corrector, clinically-demonstrated to powerfully reverse visible and invisible signs of UV damage. In addition to the exfoliating cleanser, there is a toner, spot treatment, and moisturizer. You can see them all at this link. All of the new products are reasonably priced - something we have come to expect from Kiehl's.
What UV damage can we see on the skin's surface? Brown spots, discolorations, dullness, blotchiness, and fine lines. Unfortunately, there is also invisible damage below the skin's surface due to past, cumulative sun exposure, This damage has not yet risen to the skin surface, but trust me, it will!
I purchased the Photo-Age Deep Action Exfoliating Cleanser. It creates a very creamy and gentle lather and did not irritate my sensitive skin at all. You have to make sure not to use it too close to your eyes, so I used my eyelid scrubs before I used the cleanser. Kiehl's new cleanser did leave me squeaky clean, which means it cleared out any dead skin cells that were present on the surface of my face, along with any oil and other "stuff" I don't want to consider. I used a heavy-duty dose of moisturizer afterwards, and I was "good to go."
With any $20 purchase at Kiehl's online, you will receive three samples. Why would you do that this week when you could visit or call Neiman Marcus at Mazza Gallerie, mention Best Things in Beauty, and get two bags of goodies and an entry into a drawing for a $500 shopping spree?
