The serum contains Adaptogens and they are huge in skincare right now. Just in case you haven’t come across them just yet, I’ll do a quick recap.

What are Adaptogens?

So adaptogens are clever herbs that have been used in ancient medicine for centuries and now being utilised with modern skincare and technology. They basically help with the absorption of nutrients and utilisation of oxygen and help the body adapt to what it needs. They are excellent in anti-ageing formulations as they help to delay cell ageing by improving the cells’ natural defence against external and biological stressors.

Adaptogens improve the production of cellular energy and help to maintain healthy function.

What does Kiehl’s Vital Skin Strengthening Serum Do?

  • Helps strengthen the skin barrier
  • Equips the skin to combat unavoidable, daily stressors
  • Ultra lightweight and biocompatible fast-absorbing serum
  • Uses 11kDa Hyaluronic Acid – the ideal molecular size for hydration of the most vulnerable layer of the skin
  • Adaptogenic Herbal Complex with Schisandra Berries, Holy Basil and Red Ginseng Root protects, fortifies and renews
  • Promotes resilience, suppleness and plumpness

My Review of Kiehl’s Vital Skin Strengthening Serum

The texture of this serum is so beautiful. It is instantly quenching and soothing, so much so that the skin looks immediately calmer, smoother and more radiant.

I love how this makes my skin look and feel straight away. It is the perfect serum to use alone, or if you like layering, you could use it before or after an active Vitamin C, Glycolic or Retinol serum to add in a layer of comfort and strength.

It also sits beautifully under oils for day or night. What I love about this serum most is that you can slot it in to absolutely any regime to really super-boost the skin, increase softness and enhance the skin’s level of protection by strengthening the barrier.
