Thatisbeyond…Kiehls facial fuel energizing scrub
This has been my first foray into the world of Kiehls, and I have to say that I am a fan!
For me there is something about this brand that really speaks to the average guy, and says this one product will make a difference to your life!
Whilst pottering around duty free on my way to Stockholm, I stopped into the Kiehls store and had a look at their extensive range of products aimed at us guys, and was really excited by their range. It felt like each product was an individual that didn’t cross over with any other (which made choosing one very difficult) and this shows that Kiehls believe in each of their products.
I decided to give the Energizing Scrub a go, as I have used products with apricot kernels before and generally speaking, they are not too harsh on my skin. It also mentioned on the packaging, that the product was an excellent buffer of dull skin. My skin can start to look quite dull, I think it Is to do with the extreme levels of combination that it is! So, sometimes it is nice for me to have a more “even” looking complexion. I find that this product does the job perfectly. As well as the scrub removing the dead skin cells etc. It also provides a polished look to the surface of the skin, which in turn creates a much more youthful look.
One thing I would say is that, this product does not smell as you expect! This is a testimony to the natural ingredients used by Kiehls, but the best way to describe it is… Earthy! It doesn’t smell bad, but more just medicinal, I guess?!
This scrub has a dryer base than any others I have seen on the market, you don’t need a huge amount of it either, but in terms of consistency, many products of this ilk are almost cream based, and are applied similarly to a thick moisturiser. It is a very different experience to those kinds of products, and that is why the buffing effect is so successful, the fine granules are not swamped by other oils etc trying to get closer to the skin!
I also have to endorse this as a great pre shave scrub too, it really works to soften the hair and ensure that you get the close shave that you desire!
All in all, I really like this, I have been using it for a couple of weeks and I can see the difference in my skin. It is much more even and looks in much better condition, which is why we will be using it after all!
