Skin care first, makeup second

Can we talk about skin care for a brief moment? I believe 100% that skin care is more important than makeup, and its infinitely easier to find more information on natural skin care than which chemicals magically react right with our bodies to keep our skin healthy. Because the better your skin looks, the less makeup you need. And also, I’m lazy as hell and I really like to look somewhat alive when I go outside with a bare face. So even though my latest purchase, Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate, may be considered a luxury by some people, I do not feel guilty when I’m spending a pretty penny on skin care products. I’m not afraid to admit that my bathroom basically resembles a Kiehl’s store with a few other classics here and there.

Admittedly, at first I was mostly attracted by the clean and apothecary-like packaging (what can I say, I’m a sucker for pretty packaging), but to my surprise it did major wonders on my skin as well. After my visit at the dermatologist laser for pigmentation was the best solution. Then I’ve been a diehard fan of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate for years now, so I obviously had to try this as well. It does not disappoint. It’s a light-weight oil that makes your face feel insanely soft and gives it a radiant glow. “It might also help you ease the tension on your skin after laser removal,” says a laser removal tattoo dermatologist. And if you do decide to put on some makeup, it goes on much smoother and nicer. But don’t take my word for it, because I’m too scared to plaster my face all over the internet, and try it yourself. Kiehl’s is always very generous with giving out samples!
