The Most Iconic Kiehl’s Products Everyone Should Own

Kiehl’s iconic range consistently earns rave reviews – and it’s easy to see why: the clever formulas are mostly inspired by nature, science and service, resulting in multi-tasking products designed to simplify and streamline your routine. Calling on cutting-edge technology, the brand’s key buys are simple yet efficacious, working to brighten, moisturise and provide a healthier-looking complexion. Here are five picks worth the splurge this Black Friday, with a special 25% discount…


Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate, £52

Why It’s Iconic: There are so many vitamin C serums on the market now, but Kiehl’s does-it-all formula really stands out. Brimming with 12.5% antioxidant vitamin C, it’s incredibly potent, but hyaluronic acid and glycerine will counteract any inflammation or irritation. Just a small amount works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, while boosting both the skin’s radiance and elasticity over time. You’ll find dark spots are visibly reduced with regular use, too. No wonder it remains a brand bestseller. 

How To Use It: Use this as you would any other serum, after cleansing but before your moisturiser. The latter will lock in all its anti-ageing benefits. As it’s potent, use it only twice a week – avoiding the eye area entirely – for optimum results. If your skin is sensitive, build up your tolerance, starting with once a week and gradually increasing your application from there.

Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA++++, £29

Why It’s Iconic: Loved for its lightweight texture, this is non-comedogenic (so it won’t clog your pores), and glossy in texture for a light veil of protection that lasts all day. It absorbs quickly without leaving any tackiness behind, while advanced UVA/UVB technology creates a barrier against pollution and other daily aggressors. In short, it’s a one-stop-shop for beating the early signs of ageing. Added vitamin E is welcome, too, as it works boost moisture and smoothness. 

How To Use It: This silky sunscreen should be applied at the end of your daily skincare routine. It’s sheer and thin in consistency, so don’t worry about it caking up. You can also wear it underneath your foundation if you prefer – the choice is yours.

Ultra Facial Cream, £26

Why It’s Iconic: Ten pots of this cult cream are sold every minute around the world, and it’s easy to see why. Brimming with olive-derived squalane (a key, moisturising ingredient), it works particularly well on those with dry, tight skin. In fact, it’s clinically proven to boost your hydration levels with 2.3 times more moisture – ideal for the cold, winter months when central heating takes its toll. Expect your complexion to look visibly plumper after just a few uses. It comes with an SPF30, too, so you’re protected in more ways than one. 

How To Use It: Massage this in morning and night to beat moisture depletion throughout the day. As it’s now formulated with a lighter texture, it sits well underneath your base make-up too, without causing any pilling or flaking.

Centella Sensitive Facial Cleanser, £28

Why It’s Iconic: Come winter, it’s important to nourish your skin with formulas that don’t strip. Cue this best-selling cleanser, which is incredibly mild, thanks to calming centella asiatica extract. Despite its gentle approach, the satisfying creaminess of the formula still feels luxe and acts like a magnet, grabbing onto all traces of dirt and grime for a seamless cleanse. It’s also pH-balanced, so the skin’s barrier is never compromised. Despite it being lightweight, you won’t need to double cleanse – once is enough. 

How To Use It: Massage this gentle cleanser into your skin in circular motions – it’s been designed with sensitive skin types in mind, so don’t be afraid to run this over your eye area, too. As it’s a dual-use formula, rinse it away with water or remove with a dry cotton pad. Either way, expect skin to feel moisturised and soothed afterwards.

Super Multi-Corrective Cream, £58

Why It’s Iconic: For those seeking a hard-hitting cream, look no further than this newly renovated formula. It boasts impressive results with 96% of testers touting the anti-ageing benefits after a 12-week trial period. A true multi-tasker, it uses a unique version of vitamin A and radiance-boosting chaga mushroom to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Seeing is believing, but this formula isn’t to be missed – especially for those after more even tone and luminosity. 

How To Use It: Use this both in the morning and at night for the best results. Massage it in evenly to cleansed skin, running a little down your neck, too, so this area can also benefit from the luxurious formula.
