Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash by Kiehl's
Having lived abroad I have been familiar with Kiehl's since much before it launched in India. It was the go to skincare brand for many people around me. Oddly enough I had never tried a Kiehl's product until as recently as two months ago. Anyhoo, I have been very happy with their Clearly Corrective™ DARK SPOT SOLUTION; so was more than happy when the Kiehl's team sent me the newly launched Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash.
I have now been using the face wash daily for two weeks. I have a combination skin-type with sensitivity to the sun, but no breakouts. The bottle states, normal to oily skin type and works well with my skin.
The face wash is a clear gel that lathers up nicely with the addition of a small amount of water. It leaves you feeling squeaky clean which is such a pleasant feeling, specially in these sticky months. My t-zone remains oil-free all day long, true to the "deep cleansing" name.
If you're wearing light makeup, the face wash removes that easily as well, however, if you are wearing eye make-up, I recommend using a separate make-up remover.
In terms of fragrance, there is nothing too overpowering but just a hint of lemon. Kiehl's chemists have used Calendula Flower Extract, which is a traditional Chinese Medicine herb with strong anti-viral and detoxification properties. This helps clean the skin gently but thoroughly.
Overall, I am really happy. My skin feels clean without feeling dehydrated and looks refreshed.
