It’s not often that I switch up my facial cleanser, so when I do it has to come with rave reviews. And rave reviews are all I’ve heard about the Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions™ Centella Sensitive Facial Cleanser.
I first learned about the cleanser through one of my favourite UK bloggers, The Anna Edit – I’ve always loved her recommendations and thought I’d give it a go. Before this I was using the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, which to be honest, is still probably my holy grail.
What really peaked my interest is that the Kiehl’s cleanser is specifically formulated for those with sensitive skin, and in particular, those suffering from redness and dryness (i.e. ME)
The cleanser is formulated with centella asiatica extract, which gently removes dirt and oil while strengthening the skin’s barrier. The formula is both mild and pH-balanced, and leaves the skin feeling super moisturized.
Moisturized is the key word here. In fact, some mornings, when I’m half asleep, I wonder if I’ve mistakenly used a lotion to clean my face. Usually with a cleanser as rich as this I would be afraid of breakouts, but I’ve had no such reaction. It’s just a beautiful, gentle, face wash that I can feel confident cleansing my sensitive skin with.
Well done Kiehl’s, A+! If you’re like me and have sensitive-reactive skin, this is a cleanser definitely worth checking out!
