It is always our goal to be adding things into our daily routines to become a healthier version of ourselves.  I take multivitamins, I add the lemon to my water, I add more vegetables to my meals, and I add collagen to my morning routine.  Have you ever thought to add anything else to your skincare routine?  I didn’t think about it until I came across this product by Kiehl’s.  Their brand new product, Kiehl’s Retinol Micro-Dose Serum is everything I need and more in a skincare serum and this is something you should start adding to your skincare routine too!

What Is Retinol?

I asked myself this question too but I was so excited to dig a little more into the details of what this product would do for my skin. Also, not knowing if this product was for me at first I quickly realized that Kiehl’s Retinol Micro-Dose Serum is for everyone, even if you’re a newbie in the skincare world!  Kiehl’s first ever Retinol Micro-Dose Serum is a combination of pure retinol, peptide, and ceramides that renews your skin to deliver a more youthful-looking skin tone.  Do you struggle with wrinkles? Is your skin tone a little uneven? Or do you have large pores? Kiehl’s Retinol Micro-Dose Serum will be your new best friend as it helps reduce wrinkles, even skin tone, improves firmness, and refine texture.

How It Works:

This gentle retinol is safe to use in the morning or at night!  Though, make sure you are putting this product on in the correct way! (yes, like cooking you need to make sure you’re putting products on your face in the correct order).

  1. Start with your cleanser
  2. Follow with face toner
  3. Follow with serums ***this is when Kiehl’s Retinol Micro-Dose Serum comes into play!** Although, it is important that if you are using several different types of serums for your face, start with the most liquid to the creamiest in texture.
  4. Layer on your Eye Treatment
  5. Moisturize face
  6. SPF in the am **don’t forget to wear your SPF!

Here is the order of the skincare routine with some of my other favorite Kiehl’s products!

My Experience With This Gentle Retinol:

I was very hesitant to try this product at first. So many people had raved about it already and when I saw it was clinically tested (and proven) to reduce wrinkles, firm skin, and refine texture I immediately added it to my cart.

I took it on night one and definitely expected to wake up to crazy skin the next morning. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised (and a little shocked) when I realized I had no redness, dryness, or peeling. I thought to myself, ‘oh it will definitely come after night two, and then night three, and then night four. After a week I finally realized I had found a gentle retinol that worked wonders for my sensitive skin WITHOUT all of the crazy discomfort. PLUS, this is one of the only retinol products I have heard of that you can actually apply daily.

After just a week of incorporating it into my routine I noticed a bunch of skin surface turnover and my skin definitely feels softer than ever. I am sooooo excited to continue applying this nightly to see what exactly this can do for my skin long term.

It is so crazy to me that I went from being too afraid to try retinol to basically finding a product I never want to go without!

I urge you guys to grab this Kiehl’s Retinol Micro-Dose Serum and start applying it asap!
