Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream & Eye-Opening Serum: Review
Recently, Kiehl's released an complementary Eye-Opening Serum to its best-selling Super Multi-Corrective Cream. As you know, I am a big fan of Kiehl's skin care so today I want to share with you my thoughts on the Super Multi-Corrective duo. To read more, click......
Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream & Eye-Opening Serum: Review
Super Multi-Corrective Cream
Super Multi-Corrective Cream ($68 CAD):
What it's for:
This daily face moisturizer is designed to target the many signs of aging, including dull complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Key Ingredients:
  • Jasmonic acid: triggers self-repair process of skin cells; helps reduce wrinkle, fine lines, and provides skin elasticity 
  • Beech tree sugar extract: firms skin
  • Fragmented hyaluronic acid: enhances Jasmonic acid's benefits by further improving skin elasticity and texture
Formulation:
Housed in a pretty purple jar, the Super Multi-Corrective Cream has a thick, almost margarine-like consistency. Despite being quite solid, the cream is lightweight and absorbs nicely. I use this all over my face before bed and depending on how lazy I am, I would even apply some over my eye counter instead of using an eye cream. I don't have any noticeable wrinkles yet, but I do notice that my skin is more plump and nourished in the morning, so I would imagine this product helps smooth out wrinkles and small fine lines.
I can see this as a great day and night cream for those with normal to dry skin but for oily and combination skin, something like the Oil Eliminator Moisturizer (reviewed here) would be better for the day time.

Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum
Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum ($56 CAD):
What it's for:
This "5 in 1" eye serum is designed to "lift, firm, smooth, hydrate, and restore" the skin around the eyes. Formulated with out paraben, mineral oil, fragrance, or colorants, this serum is suitable sensitive skin as well.

Key Ingredients:
  • Sodium hyaluronate: forms a transparent film on skin that soothes and moisturizes
  • Botanical extracts: improves firmness of the eye counter by increasing the thickness of  the epidermal layer 
  • Skin illuminating minerals: minimizes the appearance wrinkles and reduce under eye darkness
Formulation:
With a lightweight formulation filled with shimmering illuminating minerals, the eye serum comes in a small metal jar with a pump dispenser. The serum absorbs fairly quickly and leaves a thin film around the eyes that instantly tightens the skin. I don't find the serum very moisturizing. In fact, I find that I need to follow this with a night cream (or just the Super Multi-Restorative Cream) or else my eye area feels a bit dry. I think this is actually a great product to wear during the day time under makeup because it works great at tightening and lifting.

Overall:
The Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream is incredibly rich and moisturizing, making it a great everyday face cream for normal to dry skin. The Eye-Opening Serum is very tightening and lifting, great for use in morning but because it is a bit drying, it should be paired with a rich eye cream.

Availability:
Kiehl's is available online and in stores at Kiehl's boutiques nationwide.
