I know I’m not the only one that plans ahead for certain sales. I have had a cart started for the Kiehl’s Friends and Family sale, and while it does have my family’s favorite sunscreen, I wanted to share a few of my top picks. I have to confess that the beginnings of my cart are shared here (they’re the first things I’ve added), but I’ll probably be adding more items to my cart before I check out. In particular, I don’t have my husband’s product list yet (he pretty much exclusively uses Kiehl’s products), and I still need to inventory some of my own products. But there are items I know I need to stock up on, that’s what I’m sharing today.
The sale starts on 6/9, but you can shop early now with my code, 15MinBeauty25. That code gets you 25% off of everything, and you can shop before the sale starts! Some of the biggest sellers will sell out during the sale, so it’s best to purchase early if you can.
Micro-Dose Anti-Aging Retinol Serum
Retinoids are Vitamin A derivatives with amazing skin benefits to fight aging and acne. They improve skin turnover, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, evening out skin tone and creating a smoother skin texture. Unfortunately, they’re also known to be irritating. I have sensitive skin due to my Rosacea, and most retinoids, even in small amounts, create enough redness that I can’t use them.
Kiehl’s Micro-Dose Anti-Aging Retinol Serum is my go-to retinoid for a reason! This has an effective retinoid that gives me all the skin benefits I’m looking for, but without any of the irritation. Even with my sensitive skin. The secret is the micro-dose used in the lotion, it’s just enough to be effective without any irritation. I can use it nightly without any redness.
One quick note about this product, while it is named “Serum”, I think that’s a better description of its purpose. Use it like a serum, right after you wash your face and follow with a moisturizer if you need more hydration. But the texture is more like a light lotion, it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on your face and it sinks in right away.
Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask
This has been my favorite mud mask for years! It does an amazing job of getting everything out of my pores, leaving my skin looking much clearer, my skin is smoother and my pores look smaller. It even cuts down on oil production after use. I go through about 1 tub of this mask a season, so you can bet it’s something that I stock up on during the sale!
Ultra Facial Cream
This cream is used by my entire family for a reason! This is the perfect amount of hydration for your skin, it doesn’t really matter what time of year or what your skin type. It’s gentle, sinks in right away, and doesn’t feel heavy at all. All 4 of us in my house use it, so there are tubs of it in various bathrooms (and travel toiletry kits) all around the house! I’ve recommended it to friends and family for years. I stock up in the Kiehl’s Friend and Family sale every year.
Here’s a look at everything I’ll be stocking up on during the sale, what are you adding to your cart?
Don’t forget to use the code 15MinBeauty25 to shop the Friends and Family Sale early! You’ll get 25% off, this is the biggest discount you’ll find on Kiehl’s!
