Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

kiehls micro blur

Kiehl’s draws me deeper and deeper into love with them with each new launch. And their new Micro-Blur Skin Perfector is one of my favorite new products. I apply as my last step in my morning and evening routine and my skin looks and feel so much smooth. One of the biggest benefits has been how smooth and oil free my skin stays all day and as a result less breakouts. In summer I usually look like I use veggie oil as foundatio by mid-day. But since I started using Micro-Blur as my last step has left my skin soft, smooth all day long.

Its a very lightweight product and it spreads covers well with only a small amount. And it feels so good on my skin most days I skip foundation and just use Micro-Blur.

silk'n flash & go

Once the wedding is over it’s time to jet set somewhere warm and sunny with your new partner. If you don’t want to be fussing with razor burn or bikini bumps on your honeymoon check out the Silk’n Flash and Go.

The Flash and Go is really easy, I just  shower and shave my legs and dry off. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level.  Watch the unit and wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.

To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round oftreatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.

The Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair.  And I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.
