Product Of The Week: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Barrier Balm

What is it about this time of year that makes our face feel dry 24/7? Especially when we’re layering on the serums, day lotions, SPFs and night creams? Seriously. We drink glass upon glass of water too. Yet, every morning when we wake up and every night after we wash out face, our skin looks and feels tight, dry and kind of red. We blame it on the unpredictable weather that oscillates between balmy and fresh and cold and nasty, along with the forced hot air we still have pumping through our home’s vents.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Barrier Balm is getting us through it all. Specifically formulated with renewable and responsibly sourced squalane, a highly refined botanical lipid derived from sugar cane, the balm absorbs easily and quickly to help replenish our skin’s protective barrier, keeping it soft, supple and hydrated. Pro-ceramides, lipids that naturally exist in the outer layers of our skin, work to reinforce our epidermis’ barrier strength while resisting external disruptors like dirt, grime and pollution. Add in glacial glycoprotein, sourced from renewable Antarctic Sea glaciers, and we’ve got all of the deep moisture our face so desperately craves.

With its solid stick formation, all we have to do is swipe the product over top of our favourite daytime moisturizer, apply our makeup and go. It’s as simple and straight forward as that and our sensitive skin loves it. We’ve been carting it around with us too, in our Lululemon belt bag, for easy access when we want to add another layer, or five, under our eyes, across our cheeks or all over our face throughout the day. The sheer formula smooths over top of our makeup beautifully, a much-appreciated bonus, making this balm a must have.
