I think it’s clear by now that I love Kiehl’s. Last time I tried something from them I was very convinced and I still use the serum each day! After the first couple of times trying out the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator, I was convinced. Prepare for a glowing – pun intended ;) – review of Kiehl’s newest brightening moisturiser.
This Glow Formula Skin Hydrator review includes products that were sent to me by a brand or company. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are honest and are all my own. Please read my disclaimer.
Glow All The Way
The newest moisturiser is enriched with pomegranate extract (yum!) and illuminating minerals. You’ll smell and see it too, if you try the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator on your hand. Once on your face you won’t notice the pomegranate anymore and the illuminating minerals will be visible, but subtle. Don’t expect an effect like you’d put liquid highlighter all over your face! This product gives a subtle lit-from-within vibe, you won’t feel like a discoball ;)
Kiehl’s is all about natural and targeted skincare solutions. 95% of this illuminating formula has naturally derived ingredients, meaning the ingredients have kept at least 50% of their original molecular structure after it was processed.
The Glow Formula Skin Hydrator can be used with all skin types and skin tones. I have a combination skin and I feel like the moisturiser isn’t too much combined with my already hydrating skincare routine. The formula has a pearlescent rosy tint, almost like a BB cream. It gives such an exceptional subtle and yet glowing effect that I’ve been in love with the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator since – dare I say it? – day one!
So what does the product exactly do? Like we can expect from Kiehl’s, the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator does not only focuses on instant results, but also works on making you feel like a glowing goddess on a long-term basis. It boosts your radiance for a lasting glow, by protecting your skin with antioxidants. Bye pollution, hello glow!
How to use the Kiehls Glow Formula Skin Hydrator:
There’s actually quite a few ways on how you can use this brightening/illuminating moisturiser:
– By itself, as a brightening moisturiser and primer
– Combine it with your favourite moisturiser for some extra hydration
– Mix it with your foundation for a lit-from-within glow
– As an extra liquid highlight on your cheekbones or all the parts you’d like to highlight
Personally I really like to combine it with my current skincare routine and my other serum by Kiehl’s, the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. Usually I use the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator during the day and the PSLRC in the evening. It’s the last thing I put on before my moisturiser, so I use it more like a skincare product rather than a make-up product. But it’s nice you can use it in your favourite way and mix it up if you want to!
I love how easy and versatile this product is – just put some on every day and you’ll work your way up the glow ladder overtime ;) And at the same time you already get your glow on as it gives an instant result thanks to the pearlescent particles. Easy peasy, right?
I received this product as a pr gift but I’m pretty sure that I will repurchase this bottle as soon as it runs out. It’s an extra step in my skincare routine, but the benefits you get from it are worth it. Definitely a recommendation – check it out in any Kiehl’s store.
Wanna stay cosy at home? Kiehl’s also has a Belgian webshop now, so you can shop the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator right here from your sofa and your cup of coffee ;)
