Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens….

You see where I’m going with today’s post.  I intend to introduce you to 2 of my very “Favorite Things”.  Both are from a well-known, long-standing, very reputable company, however both are fairly new additions to their vast array of products!  Kiehls is the company I’m referring to and their Rosa Arctica line of products are the “bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens” that turn me into Julie Andrews!

Not too long ago Kiehls introduced us to their Rosa Arctica Moisturizer and it’s “Resurrection Flower” which when warmed between the fingers and applied to your skin activates a regeneration of your skin’s cells and really aids in the anti-ageing process.  This flower can survive without water for an extended period of time, so when it’s applied onto your skin it allows your skin to retain the moisture it needs to keep you looking young and hydrated (but definitely NOT oily).  If I hadn’t been using this product for a few years I never would believe what it could do, but I have and it does.  The only downfall was that they had not created a formula for the eyes…until now!  Finally the eye cream version is available and actually works magnificently!

I use the eye cream both day and night, whereas I save the moisturizer for my evening routine, after cleansing and toning.  It is really important to remember to warm the product up in your fingers first before applying it to your face (see “this could save your life…” post for application tips).  Both are available wherever Kiehls products are sold or at Kiehls.com and are priced at $46 (eye cream) and $60-$120 (moisturizer).

Also remember when trying new products, it can take up to 28 days for your skin to adapt.  Which is another reason I love shopping at Kiehls, they really stand by their products, if after some time you are not satisfied with the product they will take it back.  I am pretty certain you will love these two…I mean I haven’t started turning my drapes into clothing yet, but sometimes when it’s nice out, you can see me singing down the streets of Montreal…

Happy Shopping….xo Elisa
