Review: Kiehl's Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

Kiehl's latest hit is the Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and I'm determined to squeeze every single last drop out of the bottle! If having brighter, more luminous skin is right up your alley, then you're going to need to read this!

What are the fine points of this gorgeous serum?
  • Contains 12.5% Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid
  • Meant to smooth the skin surface and reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps improve texture
  • Restores radiance
Did you know that they actually ran through 89 formula variations before hitting on this winning serum? It should tell you how amazing this product well and truly is!

Let's break it down a little further - what is the 12.5% Vitamin C made up of? It is 10.5% pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), which is known to improve the texture and luminosity of skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The other 2% is made up of Vitamin Cq (Ascorbyl Glucoside), which is responsible for wrinkle reduction over time. Put together, these help brighten up the skin while improving the texture and providing anti-ageing benefits.

The fragmented Hyaluronic Acid helps add moisture to the skin, further reducing lines and refining the skin texture. As amazing as it sounds, does it actually hold up?

Not going to lie - this stuff is something I'm going to use to the last drop! This comes in a brown pump bottle, with the serum coming out a creamy white. It goes on to the skin really smoothly, and has almost that silicone type texture. It gets absorbed in no time, which means that it's really easy to get the moisturiser on right away. 

Straight away, there is a difference. If you're looking for radiant skin, without the tingle that might be found in Vitamin C-rich products, then this is it. If you're looking for something to keep the lines at bay, while moisturising the skin, then you're in the right place! It's so beautiful, I wish I could keep this bottle in my bathroom cupboard by the dozen. 

This retails for $120 for 75ml, and I'm so in love with this, I'm definitely going to be talking about this baby for quite a while. Worth every penny, this Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate is something to focus on!
