Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Skin Cream
Kiehl's new key ingredient here is the Resurrection Flower, a plant indigenous to Bulgaria , that is know to survive in the harshest condtions. The flower itself can survive periods of dryness ( and completly dry out) for up to 31 months, according to Kiehls, by miminizing water loss and then come back to normal growth and flower after moisture is once again added. All this means that this new ingredient is said to "jolt" skin cells , wake them up, and help to reduce wrinkles, increase elasticity and smooth.
That's the scientific speak. What I can tell you from trying it, is that Rose Arctica cream is a thick , silky cream ( you can tell there is shea butter in there) that obviously is super moisturizing. It is the richest cream in the Kiehl's lineup. It sinks in fast and is soft not sticky on skin. It's far too heavy for me, but as I said in the beginning, if you have super dry skin this is exactly what you are looking for. Think of this as like the heavy hand cream you use but made for your face with anti-aging properties.
Retail is $ 60.00 for 1.7 oz jar.
