Kiehl’s is a brand founded 1851 by John Kiehl, starting with a Pharmacy in New York. Nowadays, 167 years later, the brand is now known around the world for their to unique formulas in skincare, made with the finest naturally-derived ingredients. The Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate has been a best-selling product for many years, now with a new and improved formula that contains 12,5% Vitamin C. I’m going to tell you about the skin benefits that this product offers and my experience in today’s post.
The Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate is a product that is clinically demonstrated to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosting the skins radianc and improve the skins texture. This product was originally launched in 2005 and has since been sold over 5 million times. The product helps to visibly minimize pores over time for a smoother skin as well. The bottle is transparent but has a brown color to reduce light exposure (which breaks down more unstable ingredients like Vitamin C) so it’s recommended to store this product in a cool, dark place.
The new and improved formula of the Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate contains a more stable form and a higher dose of Vitamin C, which consists of 10.5% L-Ascorbic Acid and 2% Ascorbyl Glucoside (an anti-oxidant). These ingredients help your skin look brighter, protects the skin from free radical damage and boosts collagen synthesis for a firmer and younger looking skin.
Another important ingredient featured in this product is Hyaloronic Acid, an anti-aging ingredient that also helps with maximizing the collagen synthesis of the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while able to hold a lot of moisture for a hydrated and plump looking skin.
Here is the full ingredients list for those who are interested:
PROPYLENE GLYCOL, DIMETHICONE, GLYCERIN, ASCORBIC ACID, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, CETYL PEG/PPG-10/1 DIMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, ASCORBYL GLUCOSIDE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, HYDROXYETHYLPIPERAZINE ETHANE SULFONIC ACID, LAUROYL LYSINE, ACRYLONITRILE/METHYL METHACRYLATE/VINYLIDENE CHLORIDE COPOLYMER, POLYSILICONE-11, ADENOSINE,HYDROLYZED HYALURONIC ACID, LIMONENE, ISOBUTANE, CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) PEEL OIL, CITRUS LIMON PEEL OIL / LEMON PEEL OIL, CITRAL, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL, HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE
The Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate has an oily lotion type of consistency and has a Citrus scent (caused by the addition of Orange and Lemon Peel Oil). It leaves a shiny and slightly tacky layer on the skin. This product is recommended to be applied on a cleansed skin in the morning and night before your moisturizer.
The product actually warms up on the skin as it activates. It does feel a bit “strong” on my skin, it is a strange sensation and almost feels like my skin is irritated by it but it doesn’t break out. I think it is just a reaction of my skin absorbing the product and feels fine again after a few minutes.
I’ve used the Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate every morning for about 3 weeks now, and I have to say that my skin looks and feels absolutely amazing! I can definitely tell that my skin feels a lot smoother than before, more radiant and also more moisturized, which is really important due to the cold and dry weather we’re experiencing at this moment. I haven’t noticed the decrease in fine lines yet but I’m already excited by the results after a few weeks so I’m positive that using this product over a longer period of time will increase the results on my skin even more.
To summarize, if you have have a dry, dull looking skin with texture, it is definitely recommended to try out the Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate yourself!
