How To Choose a Cleanser For Your Skin:

Cleansing 101

You know it’s important, but do you know how to select the right routine for you?

For Dry Skin:

Cleanse morning and night with a gentle cleanser, for example one that does not require the addition of water. Our Centella Skin-Calming Facial Cleanser for dry skin is lightweight, alcohol-free, and is enriched with Aloe Vera. It is suitable not only for sensitive, but also to dry skin. To use, gently massage a few pumps into your skin to remove impurities, then gently wipe away with cotton pads until they wipe clean. Fancy a bit of H20? Then rinse off with warm water at the end. Plus, not only will this cleanser leave your skin feeling comforted but also moisturised.

Don’t forget the toner! This often forgotten step is in fact a great ally for dry skin, which can be altered by cleansing products. When looking for a toner for dry skin, try an alcohol free option such as our Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner. To use, apply to a cotton pad until damp on both sides and gently pat on your skin to ensure an even distribution of the product. Plus it’s enriched with cucumber.

For Combination Skin:

Wash your skin twice daily with a gentle cleanser to help remove dirt, skin oils, make-up and other impurities. For combination skin try a foam cleanser such as our Ultra Facial Cleanser, enriched with avocado oil. Apply a small amount to clean fingertips, then gently massage into damp facial areas in upward, circular motions, and rinse off with warm water. Make sure to pat skin dry with a clean tissue.

Follow with a gentle toner such as our Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner to leave skin feeling soothed. To use, apply a few drops to a cotton pad and pat onto the skin. Did you know? The calendula petals in our unique formula are still inserted by hand in the Kiehl’s apothecary tradition, so don’t be surprised to spot a petal or two on the cotton pad upon each use!

For Oily Skin:

Our Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser is one of our best cleansers for oily skin, with a formula that is oil–free, paraben–free, fragrance–free, colorant–free, and enriched with lemon fruit extracts. Gently massage into damp facial areas and rinse with warm water. Don’t skip the toner! We recommend using our Calendula Herbal Extract Toner as a toner for oily-skin, a soothing alcohol-free toner infused with Calendula petals. Shake well before applying, then pour a generous amount of toner into palms and lightly pat over face.

And For Makeup Lovers:

Discover our NEW Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, from our Midnight Recovery range, formulated with ingredients such as Squalane, Lavender Essential Oil and Evening Primrose Oil. Apply by massaging oil into skin, then add warm water to create a lather and rinse off. It can even be used to remove eye make-up as it’s ophthalmotologically-tested.
