This is another one of those wonder beauty products that you don't quite realize you needed - until you try it (and worth every penny).
Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is for hydration, skin protection, and diminishing fine lines. It contains 15% plant-based Glycerin which enhances the water holding capacity of skin, as well as an ingredient that was new to me - Shiso Leaf Extract, which aids in keeping deep moisture within the skin. This will work best on normal, combination and slightly dry skin types.
The serum texture is very silky and light and it's very concentrated, so I only needed one pump for my entire face. It felt like a creme-gel hybrid and gilded easily on to my skin. Once it hit my skin, however, something interesting happened with the texture - it seemed as if it had turned into water! Then it absorbed into my skin in seconds. My skin not only felt hydrated, plump, and smoother - but there was no residue, or feeling of serum on my skin.
This was the perfect weight for my more oily areas like my t zone as well as my drier ones, like my cheeks. The finish is completely matte, so this can be used on it's own or with makeup. Note: There's no SPF, so you'll have to add that via a sunscreen lotion, or via your Primer/BB Cream or Foundation, for example.
For me, I found this the perfect layer before adding one of my all time favorite new products, the Kiehl's Mirco Blur Skin Perfector. With these two products, I usually only needed just a light layer of foundation because my skin looked so great.
I can't wait to take this on my next trip. This will be perfect to layer on before a long flight and again before landing and then adding a touch of makeup to look refreshed upon arrival! - RLB
