Shahnaz Loves Beauty

You all know I love anything that is Kiehls and I have been dying to try out the BB Cream and Micro-Blur skin perfector for quite some time since it launched in the UK last year. I have been waiting patiently for them to land in SA so I can get my hands on them so thanks to the Nina for sending me the goodies to test.

There are times when I want something lighter to wear on my skin especially now since getting back from holiday and I am sporting a tan, while on holiday beacuse its too hot, or when my skin is breaking out and a foundation is just too heavy but I still need some coverage. The Kiehls Actively Correcting & beautifying BB cream (R525) has an SPF 50 which means my skin is protected against rays, amino acid-coated pigments which allows for the complexion to stay true to its colour, Vitamin C to correct skin tone and dark spots, provides hydration all day long which is key for me. Its super light on application and blends in beautifully making my skin look like skin with a beautiful glow. There are 5 shades available in SA for a light complexion, natural, medium which I went for medium/deep and deep. LOVE IT.

The Kiehls micro-blur skin perfector (R510) was one is was a bit more wary of because in my experience anything that says blur usually is really matt and leaves my skin feeling dry which I don’t like. This product is completely opposite its so soft on application and feels really hydrating so hands down its a winner for me even before I tell you what its all about. Not only does it help blur the complexion but it also has long term benefits with helping reduce pores over time, refine skin texture and diminish lines. There are 3 key ingredients in the blur: LHA to provide gentle exfoliation, Lentil extract to strengthen and tighten pores and Bark extract that smooths the texture of your skin.

As well as using the blur in the day you can also use at night as the final step of your beauty routine which is a real added benefit. I have only started using it so will have to see what happens to my compexion over the next month but will keep you all posted.
