Kiehl's Skin Rescuer moisturizer review + photos

          This summer, Kiehl's Skin Rescuer is coming to the rescue for fatigued, stressed, and dehydrated skin! A sample (thanks to Kiehl's) floated my way just in time; April was a ridiculously busy and stressful month for me, and my sensitive skin has been in need of some serious TLC!

          Kiehl's Skin Rescuer can either be worn alone, or in between your serum and moisturizing steps. I like to use it alone if I just need a light moisturizer to hydrate my skin. If I need more moisture, for example at night or below a matte foundation, I pair it with a regular moisturizer. Kiehl's Skin Rescuer contains ingredients like Rosa Gallica Botanical extract to minimize stress response and Mannose, a barrier protecting sugar. As you can see below, it has a pretty sensitive skin-friendly ingredient list.

         Kiehl's Skin Rescuer ($40 for 2.5 oz.) is sure to buoy the spirits of those with sensitive or tired skin. It's a lightweight moisturizer that's come in handy for me at a time when my skin hasn't been at its best and needs gentle moisturization to keep things under control! Kiehl's Skin Rescuer is available now at Kiehls.com and in fine department stores.

           Thanks for reading! Have you tried Kiehl's Skin Rescuer? What Kiehl's products have you been using lately?

Love, Dovey.

  1. Hey Dovey, thanks for the review! This looks good! I could definitely use a light moisturizer for summer! I've been using Kiehl's Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. It's only been a few days so I am still observing, but so far so good!

    1. Hi Sunny, Thanks for the comment! Skin Recovery is a nice option for summer; I like that it's quite light!

  2. Oh my this one sounds lovely! Hasn't launched here yet though.. We'll have to wait an extra couple of months as usual.. But I will be checking it out then :)

    1. Hi Isabelle, Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to try it soon :)

  3. This sounds like a great one to have for summer. Now I'm very curious to try!
