Kiehl's Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence

I've come to really like Essence lotions.  They seem to be just right for my skin, hydrating but not too much with skincare ingredients in the mix.

Kiehl's recently intro'd their own new Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence .

Like most essences I've tried so far, this is slightly thicker than water liquid that you almost "splash " on your face. Not quite but you pat in on and in your skin.  Along with an instant boost of moisture , it also feels firming right off and refreshing.  Once used, the next day skin feels and looks plumped and I also noticed within two days  ,  brighter and  smoother.

Kiehl's uses Iris Florentian Root Extract  which they say gets to skin layers quickly adding radiance ,   and helping with fine lines . That's a lot to put on one ingredient but after a week's use I think the brightening/smoothing is there.

Other ingredients that will  make this work are Lipo Hydroxy Acid  which exfoliates dead skin cells and Sodium Hyaluronate , a hydration booster.

If you , like me, have oiler skin ,  this is great as a stand alone moisturizer day and night.  For those with normal to dry skin, this is a first step in your skin routine. You can layer creams or serums over this .

Kiehl's Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence is $ 45 for 6.8 oz  at Kiehl'
