Protecting Our Precious Skin… with Kiehl’s

We are a Kiehl’s family through and through. Josh has the complete men’s line plus extras, I swear by their clay masques, and the LO is just starting to get used to a life of Creme to Corps. So this year, it was a must to stock up on the latest Kiehl’s products for the outdoors. We refuse to be those people who are so afraid of the sun, we never get out and enjoy our lives. We just make sure to do so wisely!

So, imagine my delight this summer when the brand launched new SPF products to cater to our summer-fun needs. But don’t think it’s too late — skin protection is important year-round, so despite the fact that Labor Day is upon us, this is a great time to invest in some new prods.

We might rock minimalist swimwear, but our skin is always protected!

The Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30 is perfect for new parents — y’all know we have some serious dark circles under our eyes. This genius formula is delicate yet strong; it goes on soft and light, instantly brightening the entire under-eye area. The fact that it’s loaded up with SPF 30 to protect this delicate skin from the sun, and infused with activated Vitamin C and caffeine to reduce puffiness, just makes it a great go-to for anyone who’s got extra baggage. I gave a dab to Josh to try, and he was impressed with his instant results, too! $38,


Active days at the beach are best aided by a durable, waterproof sunscreen that can be spread over the whole exposed bod. Activated Sun Protector Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body is our weapon of choice this season. The formula feels super-light going on thanks to its unique water-like texture. But don’t let that gentle application fool you — this powerhouse product is a must-have for any active sun family. It also contains Vitamin E to help condition the skin. Josh and I each keep one of these in our cars at all times. $29,


And finally, if 30 is not your bag, go for 50+ with Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF50+. Silky, not greasy, this one literally creams the competition. The thing I typically hate about 50 is that it’s way too rich and impossible to rub in. Not so with this one! Oil-, fragrance-, and paraben-free, this water-resistant formula is ideal for those with sensitive skin. I put it on and instantly my face feels more luxe — and stays that way for hours in the sun, no burns. Score for Mommy! $38,
