Hi everyone! Today I am reviewing a new found gem, Kiehl’s Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence.
Price : INR 3500 for 200ml
Ingredients : (As mentioned on website)
Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid. It is used as a moisturizing agent, viscosifier and emulsifier. It forms a transparent film on the skin which has a soothing and lubricating action. It is a powerful humectant as it is capable of binding 1,800 times its own weight in water. See also: Hyaluronic Acid.

My Experience : Okay, so this post is going up on my mum’s behest!
Kiehl’s is a skincare brand, under the umbrella of L’oreal, which has been churning out premium quality products for 165 years! They several awards and accolades under their belt for a reason!
My mum discovered this particular product while looking for an anti aging treatment for her. See, when we think of an anti-aging product, we usually think Serum/ Cream /Facial Oil. However, this product has been a revelation. Hence, I thought of sharing with you all!
Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence comes packaged in a lovely burgundy bottle made of plastic. All the product details are mentioned in a neat and crisp manner in white lettering over the bottle.The bottle is travel-friendly.
Kiehl’s is known to keep the packaging basic and simple and deliver potent products in them!
As mentioned, the main ingredient is a form of Hyaluronic Acid which is well known anti-aging agent. Another prominent thing in this is the iris flower extract which I have been told is a precious ingredient as the flower blooms only thrice a year.
One of the best part about this product is that it is a fragrance free clear fluid with the consistency of a serum but it is so lightweight on application that you don’t feel like you have applied anything!
It absorbs almost instantly over the skin and immediately plumps it up, visibly smoothening the skin and fading away fine lines, providing the nourishment it requires. It acts like a primer or a vehicle for your routine serums or face creams and enables them to absorb better in the skin. There is no tackiness to this at all and it’s suitable to all skin types.
Directions of use :
The product is to be used morning and evening, over a cleansed face, before your routine skincare. You need just about 4-5 drops to cover your face and neck.
The product has no noticeable fragrance.
Now let me be very honest and tell you that if you are in your 20s or below or even in your early 30s, you wouldn’t be able to appreciate this product and you dont need it. That’s because at this age you already have enough hydration in your skin.
However, for ladies ( & men ) who are in their late 30s, 40s and above, you all know how dry the skin the get due to aging. Dry and mature skin needs all the hydration it can get but it is not possible to apply creams or even serums throughout the day. And that’s where this product will come in handy. It instantly hydrates the skin and can even be used by people who have oily skin/ who sweat a lot.
Don’t believe me? Just try it out next time you are at a Kiehl’s shop!
Over all, even though this product is not as age-appropriate for me, this is a GAME-CHANGER for those in the targeted demographics. If you have been looking to start an anti-aging regime or feel the need for something extra along with your current anti-aging regime, I strongly suggest you check this out! Bonus : It’s a superb Value-For-Money product.
I would rate it a 5/5.
Hope you found this post informative! Give it a thumb’s up if you did!
