Beauty: Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations Collection

Kiehl's - Apothecary Preparations - San Francisco

I’m 30 – I think by now we all got the memo.

And turning 30 for me means embracing all the adult behaviors:

AKA washing my face before I go to bed.

I know this sounds like a simple adult behavior, but it wasn’t for me (pre 30). So…now that I am 30, I am armed with a killer arsenal to reduce aging and keep my face looking forever 30.

Now, skincare has never really been my jam – until now. In fact last weekend I spent both Friday and Saturday nights applying serums + oils to my face followed by lotions and gloves/booties to my hands + feet. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I feel like my current relationship status is: skincare.

Step 1 of my adult nighttime skincare routine is removing my makeup (duh). I smuggled a bunch of Bioderma into the US from France last time I was there and just discovered how magical this solution is. Throw a little on a cotton swab and you are good to go.

Depending on (don’t read this mom) how many cocktails I have consumed – this is the end of my nighttime skincare routine.

But since I have been mastering my adult behaviors lately, I have cut out the booze and thrown in the skincare treatments.

The Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations start with a complimentary consultation (at select Kiehl’s stores).

Your Apothecary Preparations consultation will identify your personal skin concerns to ensure that your appropriate concerns are identified.

During my consultation and diagnosis, I was able to craft a personalized formula based on my two most significant skin concerns. Option include: redness, wrinkles, rough texture, large pores + dullness.

I went with redness +wrinkles.

Following the consultation, my two skin-specific Targeted Complexes were selected to accompany Kiehl’s Skin Strengthening Concentrate.

The final product included a personalized box with my name, details of my personal formula and directions for use.

I’m always sold on killer packaging (especially when it has my name on it).

Remember the killer packaging here?
