Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm

For as long as I can remember I've had supremely dry skin. Even as a baby I suffered with Eczema, sensitive and very dehydrated skin. When it comes to skincare I'm always looking for that wonder product that soothes and hydrates my skin, without breaking me out and also without laying ontop of my skin, almost pretending to hydrate it. I usually have to use a serum & an oil daily to hit that non flakey, and super hydrated sweet spot that my skin needs. Step in Kiehl's amazing new Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm.

On first impression this balm is not like I thought it would be, which is oil-like almost like a cleansing balm. The Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm is like a highly concentrated thick cream that breaks down when it comes into contact with warmth. It was an absolute pleasure to apply due to the edelweiss flower scent and cool texture. The first thing I noticed was the smoothing effect it had on my skin which I wasn't expecting, it blurred all my imperfections as well as being immediately hydrating. 

During the wear of the balm, I noticed that although it does sit on top of the skin, you can feel that its slowly being absorbed - keeping your skin plump. In lieu of this I think the balm would be an excellent primer for make up for dry winter skin. It also has 10% glycerin so is perfect for helping your make up stay around for longer. 

After wearing this every day for a week I can say its gone straight into my list of holy grail skincare products. I have found that when I apply this is don't need to put an oil and a serum on, just acid tone and then apply the balm. I have had no signs of my dreaded dry, flaking skin all week for the first time ever, it hasn't made an appearance - even on the colder days. Also worth mentioning, I have had zero breakouts which happens all the time to me when I use a rich cream. I have even applied this to the patches of eczema I have on my arms and its decreased it to almost nothing which is astounding to me. Its a brilliant multi-use product that I am now recommending to everyone that will listen!
