I am very late to the game with this brand, but recently I tried Kiehl’s skincare line and wow the results were insane.

But then, at the last place I stayed while traveling they had Kiehl’s products. From body scrub to moisturizers and toners. This is what I discovered after using the products for 10 days consistently.
