Introducing: SHOW Beauty Wet Line


I recently had the chance to check out the Show Beauty line and right from opening the package this set is amazing. First off the bottles are all in my favorite color black! And those sleek black bottles are topped with the cutest crystal look caps and gold accents. First shampoo and conditioner duo that is almost too pretty to use… almost. If I thought the outside was great the inside is even better.

The Show Beauty Sublime Repair Shampoo is fantastic, the formula worked up into  great lather and not only smells amazing but left my hair feeling really clean. I really liked how clean my hair felt and the shampoo didn’t dry out my hair and leave it feeling like straw.


SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Shampoo
This luxury Repair Shampoo restores hair to its natural health and shine, leaving it strengthened and silky soft for a luscious look.

A blend of Quinoa Protein and Vitamin E delivers targeted repairing and nourishing properties. Caviar and White Truffle extracts, known for their intense conditioning and enriching benefits, infuse this formula helping to revive and protect your hair.



The Show Beauty Sublime conditioner is thick, rich and buttery. Its incredibly hydrating and rinses clean to not leave any build up in my hair. After color and heat damage my hair is very dry and within the first week of use I have noticed my hair is much softer, easier to comb through and the shine is back. An amazing conditioner for hair that need a little TLC.



SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Conditioner
This sumptuous Repair Conditioner revives damaged hair, leaving it soft, irresistibly touchable and full-bodied.

Infused with Quinoa Protein, known to reinforce hair fibres and provide protection from cuticle abrasion, this conditioner helps improve hair’s manageability and tensile strength. A blend of Caviar and White Truffle extracts enrich this formula with conditioning and revitalising properties.




The grand finale of the Show Beauty Sublime Repair collection is their Repair Treatment mask. Its thick and creamy almost like a body butter. I apply a dollop and work through the middle of my hair to the ends. Then I like to put my hair in a top knot wrap in a shower cap and let the repair mask go to work.

I have fine, curly, color treated hair that breaks or gets frizzy at the drop of a hat.  I have used this mask to do a deep treatment 3 times now and its really improving the look and feel of my hair. While its still my same issue prone hair its getting stronger and breaking less and my frizz is nearly gone. The best part is this even added shine and softeness back to my highlighted hair. Its the perfect way to spend an evening giving yourself a little luxury at home spa treatment.



SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Treatment Mask

This exceptional, intensive Repair Treatment Mask deeply nourishes for exquisitely sleek and glossy hair.

A multi-faceted protein-based complex helps this Treatment Mask strengthen the hair from within, whilst
Hydrolyzed Pea and Quinoa Protein add hydration to this formula and improve elasticity. Pro Vitamin B5 adds nourishment and conditioning, helping to improve manageability and body. A combination of Caviar and White Truffle extracts enrich this formula with amino acids and minerals, moisturising and adding tensile strength.

Get The Look: Kate Hudson in LORAC

Kate Hudson is known for her effortless beauty and last night was no exception! The A-lister looked radiant in a rose gold ensemble as she attended the launch of the new Tiffany & Co. store in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening. Makeup Artist Debra Ferullo trusted LORAC Cosmetics to create Kate’s bold-eye look.

“When I saw Kate’s rose gold outfit, I thought it would look beautiful with a bold eye and lots of lashes. I decided to keep the lip soft and the skin luminous. I recently came across an old photography book featuring photographer David Bailey’s work and I incorporated some of that inspiration into this look.” – Debra Ferullo, Celebrity Makeup Artist.

Kiehl’s Launches Two New Acne Fighters #InTheClear



Adult acne is a growing concern that affects all ages and ethnicities. In the US, it is one of the most common skin conditions, affecting more than 40 million people. On social media, it is the #1 referenced skin-related concern worldwide.1

Acne is an occurrence of inflamed or infected sebaceous glands in the skin that can range from smaller, more localized areas, commonly referred to as breakouts, pimples, spots or zits. Acne can also be a more severe skin issue that spreads over larger areas of the skin. No matter the age, acne can have a true emotional impact on those who experience it, affecting their quality of life, careers and relationships.

With this concern in mind, Kiehl’s Since 1851 chemists proudly introduce Dermatologist SolutionsTM Breakout Control Targeted Acne Spot Treatment, a fast-acting, gentle formula clinically demonstrated to reduce the appearance of breakouts and blemishes in as little as 24 hours, and Dermatologist SolutionsTM Breakout Control Acne Treatment Facial Lotion, a complementary facial lotion that helps reduce the appearance of acne.




More common among women, studies show that adult acne concerns increased by 61% for women in their 30s and 60% for women in their 40s between 2005 and 2013.2 While 80% of adult acne is persistent from teenage years,3 20% of adult acne is late-onset and appears after age 25.4 Regardless of age, acne is caused by 4 common factors:

  1. Hormonal Influences (or imbalances)
  2. Blockage of oil or sebum flowing through the skin attributed to genetic factors, changes in the thickness or viscosity of the sebum, scarring from recent breakouts, retained skin cells on the surface of the skin that block pores, improper cleansing and/or occlusive skincare products.
  3. Bacteria that proliferates within the pocket of entrapped sebum within the pore.
  4. Inflammation that can come from physical or emotional stress, poor sleep, inhaling/ingesting environmental pollutants/toxins and diet

A key distinction between acne and adult acne is its clinical classification and distribution. Teenagers typically have oilier skin with inflammatory and comedonal (or blocked-pore related) acne that tends to appear in the T-zone. In contrast, adult acne tends to be tied more to inflammation and hormonal dysregulation, which often results in papules, pustules and cysts located along the jaw line and on the cheeks, in what is called the U-zone. Adult acne can also have an increased rate of discoloration, as the process of clearing acne-related blemishes and stains slows down as we age.

keihls acne treatment

Kiehl’s new Breakout Control Acne Treatment is designed to combat adult acne. It contains the maximum amount of sulfur (OTC) to help banish your blemishes in just 24 hours! This lotion does have a bit of texture so I find it easiest to use a night so I am not trying to mess with makeup over it.

I have used this now several times on a few blemishes that popped up. The first sign of acne I applied a bit at night before bed and wow what a difference. The redness is reduced, swelling has diminished  and it doesn’t leave my sensitive skin dry or irritated. And on little blemishes they seem to just disappear overnight. I am really impressed with how quick this works, a great product to add to your beauty arsenal.

Kiehl’s Breakout Control Acne Treatment Facial Lotion $28
Helps to correct and prevent future blemishes.

This facial treatment lotion helps to correct and help prevent future blemishes, while reducing the appearance of dullness and rough texture. Formulated with acne-clearing Salicylic Acid and Pine Bark Extract, our facial treatment lotion calms and soothes inflamed skin, while diminishing visible redness and evening skin tone for a clear complexion. Over time, skin appears healthy and youthfully refined.

  • Prevents breakouts.
  • Corrects rough texture and discolorations.
  • Apply liberally to clean, dry skin, avoiding the immediate eye area. Reduce number of applications if dryness or peeling occurs. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with water.

kiehls breakout control

A great daily treatment this not only helps get rid of blemishes but helps to reduce the number of future breakouts. I have sensitive and dare I say aging skin and had no irritation or sensitivity with this. I apply it on my U zone and anywhere else I am breakout prone. It leaves my skin feeling clean, clear and hydrated. So glad I have something that works daily to reduce breakouts from working out and seasonal weather changes.

Kiehl’s Breakout Control Targeted Acne Spot Treatment
Blends evenly and works to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

This targeted blemish spot treatment helps to rapidly reduce the appearance of acne breakouts. Formulated with Sulfur for acne-clearing and Vitamin B3 for skin, our acne spot treatment blends evenly into skin and works to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

  • Quickly eliminates breakouts
  • Reduces redness
  • Cleanse skin thoroughly prior to application. Apply a thin layer to blemish once daily and blend into skin. Increase to two to three times daily as needed. Reduce number of applications if dryness or peeling occurs. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with water.


Both products are now available in Kiehl’s stores and online at
