Treat Yourself: Kiehl's Apothecary Preparations

Hey dolls! You may have noticed a new addition to my skincare routine over on snapchat (danimikay), my personalized Kiehl's serum.  Kiehl's just launched Apothecary Preparations, an in-store only service that is personalized to each individual!  First, I sat down one on one with a Kiehl's expert to discuss my skin situation.  For me, I am a little oily, a little dry and super acne prone, which is not an easy combination to combat.  We took a look inside to Skin Atlas which made addressing my specific concerns super easy,  I pointed out which photos represented my skin, photos included different degrees of texture, redness, enlarged pores, and wrinkles.  Then, I ranked my specific concerns and decided on treating my skin with the pore minimizing and brightening complex.  

After the consultation is completed, I was given my customized bottle and box.  Inside the box is the Skin Strengthening Concentrate along with the pore minimizing complex and brightening complex.  The main ingredient in the concentrate is Squalane a botanical lipid that is highly compatible with your skin's natural oils.  The Skin Strengthening Concentrate is then combined with two complexes of your choice!  

Once I got home I activated the serum by emptying the two complexes into the strengthening complex.   I have been using this serum for only a few days now morning and night and I am already loving it.  I haven't had a break out since, which is rare for me.   The serum goes on light and dries completely matte.   The Apothecary Preparation service makes an amazing Holiday gift, you can bring your friend or family member into the Kiehl's store so they can sit down and experience it for themselves.  It is also the perfect way to treat yourself! Head into the store, pick up some holiday gifts, get a consultation and leave with an amazing product for yourself.

I have linked some Kiehl's products below that would make amazing holiday gifts if you are unable to visit a store in person.

Shop my look.
