Even if you drink plenty of water everyday, have eight hours of sleep every night, and apply sunscreen with higher SPF. But to get more advanced protection, you’ll want to invest in a targeted anti-aging serum like Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.

My first impressions about the product

What I like about this– First, I am starting by its packaging – I got the 50 ml bottle – Retails for NZD$ 128.00.– The pump bottle is hygienic – no dirty fingers contaminating the product; Also pump makes it much easier to take the product out. The pump also has a twist-lock system, So there’s no accidental dispensing of product and it’s much more travel friendly. No fragrance like most of the Kiehl’s Products.

This is a Vitamin C enriched face serum claims to diminish the appearance of facial skin aging, improves overall skin texture and radiance and noticeably decrease the appearance of fine lines, crows feet and sub-orbital lines and wrinkles.

How I used it  – Along with my other skincare products & rosehip oil – I started using this serum once a day and slowly changed to twice everyday. At first  I wanted to check, if my skin is able to tolerate this high concentrate(to check that I used it once a day and slowly changed to twice after couple of days when I saw that my skin was ok with the product).  I see it as a skin repairing product. If you see my skin condition for week 1 here, you can see that my skin was breaking out so badly and along with good skincare products that reduce my acne, I wanted something that can help in improving my skin texture. reduce acne spots etc. Though my trilogy products helped me in getting rid of my acne completely and preventing my skin from further breakouts, I was not seeing any improvements on acne scars even after using for a month. So I decided to use this serum here along with the trilogy products. I take a pump of product and  I apply it to areas where I need it after cleansing & toning – I apply to the areas such as around eyes, mouth, on acne scars etc and let it sink into my skin and then follow it with my night or day time moisturizer + rosehip oil. This product easily layers under any moisturizer which I think is the best. as it gets absorbed easily, you will never feel it heavy on skin after following with the moisturizer.  Texture is thick- but feels smooth and velvety while applying. What I really like about this is that it absorbs quickly by the skin. Once it’s absorbed, there’s a very slight but negligible stickiness left on the surface of the skin. After using this I can see a huge difference on my scarring issues & dark cirles. Perhaps this could be the miracle of 10.5% vitamin C ingredient in this.

Now, I have got a PMD for review. I am going to do the micro dermabrasion using the PMD and continue to use this serum. Will update on this post after I use for about 3 months

What I dislike about this – Main dislike for its price, I think it is a little overpriced and because there are so many cheaper serums in the market.. If you are more of a younger skin, You might not need this as its mainly targeted for wrinkles, lines etc. But, you if you are ok about splurging a little bit- you can reach out to this.  If you are in your late twenties like me  or above, You will love this. IMG_5082
