Synergistic Shine Stoppers
By Brenna Fisher, Contributing Writer |
Dealing with oily skin is a cyclical process that has the potential to drive anyone crazy. You cleanse the skin to remove the oil, the skin dries out, it produces oil to compensate and you repeat the process into eternity. Stop!
Just launched this month, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Collection removes excess oil and seals in the moisture you need to properly hydrate skin without overdoing it or leaving your face shiny and doomed to undergo the aforementioned crazy cleansing cycle. The oil-, paraben-, dye- and fragrance-free line comes with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and gel cream, and promises all-day moisture for healthy skin.
The secret is in rebalancing oils and skin hydration. The line features vitamins and fruit extracts as well as water-infused humectants, which is a fancy way of saying moisture preservers, such as antarcticine and imperata cylindrical root extract, which act as shields against drying environmental factors. All that is really cool, but what we love best is just the fresh feel of our skin, which isn't over dried or shiny. Oily skin: neutralized.
