Beauty news: Kiehl’s unveils their new Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum

In huge news for the brand and the beauty realm in general, Kiehl’s has taken upon itself to release its first new serum in a long time – and it was worth the wait. Top of mind? The message that not all Hyaluronic Acid is created equal, and why this unique new formula delivers all that and so much more.
Designed to help strengthen the natural skin barrier to combat unavoidable, daily stressors, the new Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum is an ultra-lightweight, almost gel-feeling and biocompatible, fast-absorbing serum that absorbs like a charm. Powered by 11kDa Hyaluronic Acid and an Adaptogenic Herbal Complex, it aims to strengthen the feel of skin’s resilience, suppleness and plumpness to visibly address signs of ageing with results after just four weeks.
Kiehl’s 11kDa Hyaluronic Acid is powered by the brand’s smallest molecular size of Hyaluronic Acid, which is the ideal size for targeted and deep efficacy within skin’s surface layers. The formula has been scientifically tested to fortify skin’s upper layers by delivering skin-strengthening hydration to the most vulnerable layer of skin most susceptible to external aggressors. The HA’s diminutive size means it has a greater capacity to retain moisture in the epidermis, so you get plumper and better protected skin, for longer.
The next piece of the puzzle is the Adaptogenic Herb Complex. Adaptogenic herbs have long been held in high regard in traditional medicine for their ability to treat fatigue and stress. If you’ve ever been treated by a naturopath or herbalist you’ll recognise the likes of Schisandra Berries, Holy Basil and Red Ginseng Root, which are all present and accounted for in the new Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum. A little on these babies below…
Holy Basil
Holy Basil, rich in Ursolic acid & Rosmarinic acid, helps neutralise skin-damaging free radicals and revitalises the look of skin helping to lessen the visible effects of skin stressors.
Red Ginseng Root
Red Ginseng Root, rich in Ginsenosides, helps stimulate essential resurfacing of skin cells
Schisandra Berry
Schisandra Berry, rich in Schisandrins, helps reinforce skin resiliency and elasticity in this antioxidant rich formula.
I’ve loved having a sample of this new serum to play with, and love how no-nonsense it is. A great starter serum for those who may have been a little blinded by science when faced with what type to use, it has also demonstrated some serious results when it comes to radiance and a lessening of the appearance of fine lines. I love the lightweight feel and quick absorption, and that is most definitely plays well with others – including makeup.
If this sounds like a bit of you, the new Kiehl's Vital Skin-Strengthening Super Serum RRP $100 (30ml) $155 (50ml) is available right now from the brand’s Sylvia Park and Westfield Albany boutiques in Auckland and Westfield Riccarton boutique in Christchurch), as well as at selected Farmers stores and Smith & Caughey.
