It’s day 28 of the #High5ToGreatSkin challenge with Kiehl’s & Beauty Bulletin

I’ve mentioned before that I am taking part in the 28 day #High5ToGreatSkin challenge with Kiehl’s and Beauty Bulletin and today is day number 28.

My #High5ToGreatSkin #ChangeYourSkin Journey with Kiehl’s 

When I started this challenge, I was really struggling with skin that was sensitive, dry and environmentally stressed. Today I have soft, smooth, glowing, more even-toned skin. I don’t really think I need to say more. Thank you Kiehl’s and Beauty Bulletin! I am so happy with the results and this challenge has once again confirmed something that I already knew… Kiehl’s kicks butt.

Here are my thoughts on each product…



Day 1: I wasn’t sure that this oil would pack the punch my skin needs right now, but it does! I use a little more than the recommended 3 drops and my skin loves it. Liquid gold I tell you. No more tight, flaky skin. I have been using it in the mornings too and my skin feels calmed and soothed the moment this glorious liquid touches my freshly cleansed skin. I think using it twice a day is exactly what my skin needed as this harsh Cape Town weather has not been kind to me.

Day 21: I have found my holy grail product for winter!! Day 1… dull, scaly, tight and uncomfortable. Now… smooth, soft, glowing skin!! I am over the moon. Using this oil twice a day has been my skin’s saving grace!

Day 28: I couldn’t be happier! This oil is magic. This light, easily absorbed liquid literally saved my face this winter. If you have environmentally stressed skin, this is the products you need to get. It soothes, calms, moisturises and nourishes even the driest and most sensitive of skins. It gets 11/10!!



Day 1: This is the most nourishing eye cream I have ever used. It is very thick so you have to take your time to apply it to the delicate eye area. I can’t see much of a difference yet, but it feels good. Another plus is that my concealer applies like a dream. No caking at all!

Day 21: The longer I’m using this cream, the more I’m starting to love it. My under eye area definitely looks smoother and more hydrated. And it almost looks as though my crows feet are softening. Watch this space!

Day 28: Okay, I’m converted. I LOVE this eye cream. Crows feet have softened! I will not be able to go without Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment ever again.



Day 1: I love how warm this feels on my skin. This thick concentrate also has a lovely calming effect on my skin. My skin looks plump after application, but we will have to wait and see what it does to these lovely lines of mine. I’ll keep you posted.

Day 21: I thoroughly enjoy applying this serum. It feels incredible on my skin. It really looks as though my smile lines and ’11’ wrinkles are softening. I’m excited!

Day 28: 28 days in and I am very happy with my results. My laugh lines and ’11’ wrinkles are definitely less noticeable. I am over the moon. I am so excited to see what this serum will do with continued use. Well done Kiehl’s!



Day 1: It’s a bit too soon to see any changes in my dark spots, but my skin looks beautifully bright at the moment. It must be doing something! I really like that this serum feels very light on my skin and works well when combined with other products. I love that the bottle is clear and that it has a dropper… I don’t want to waste a single drop.

Day 21: I have 3 stubborn dark spots on my forehead that does not seem to want to lighten (yet!), but I apply this serum all over and my skin appears a lot brighter and more even toned than before.

Day 28: It seems as though the pigmentation spots that I have on my forehead are lightening! I am very impressed. These spots didn’t just appear over night so I did not expect this serum to start making a difference in such a short amount of time. Overall my skin looks brighter and more even-toned. This is a winning product.



Day 1: I have a lot of love for this moisturiser. I was worried that it would be a bit much after already applying quite a few other products, but it provides just enough hydration without feeling heavy at all. I think this cream would work well for most skin types. It is awesome.

Day 21: I am still so in love with this cream. It is probably the ‘simplest’ of the 5 products I am currently testing, but it is so effective. My skin soaks it up and is left feeling calmed and soothed. This is a must-have! My sensitive skin loves it.

Day 28: It is safe to say that I have not used many face creams that I love quite as much as I love the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. It is such a simple product, yet it is so effective!! It is as though my face sighs with relief the moment this cream comes in contact with my skin. If you have sensitive skin, you will love it! I highly recommend this!
