Skin Bright, Skin Tight with Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask
With my busy schedule during the day, it is only by night that I get to have that uninterupted “me time” where I do my nightly skin care routine and relax a bit before I go to sleep. (That’s if I have the luxury of time) And since I’m in my mid 30’s already, signs of skin aging are begining to set in like fine lines- just to mention one.
DID YOU KNOW? According to skin experts, our skin makes new collagen(plays a role in strengthening skin) when we sleep which is part of our body’s repair process. And getting only 5 hours of sleep or less can lead to more fine lines. Not just that, it also makes your skin dry.
Unfortunately, there were times that I am sleep deprived because of many reasons. That is why, aside from my daily skin care routine, I need an additional skin care product that will help my skin keep up with the stress of everyday life and its changing needs.
Just recently, I was invited by Kiehl’s Philippines to the launch their newest product… Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask, which happened in Okada Manila’s luxurious 420sqm Presidential Suite.
Wow! I was really amazed how Kiehl’s set the scene at the presidential suite of Okada Manila and turned it into an elegant, instagram-worthy hub. All guests were given robes to suit on during the event as we roam around and experience what Kiehl’s had in store for us that night.
The spacious dining area has a private bar and was transformed to a socials area where we indulged on great selections of food and cocktails. Their lasagna and the dark chocolate taste really good guys!👌. Watch my Instagram stories here to see.
There’s a jacuzzi room turned essential oil mixing station, where us guests were able to create soothing, calming aromas for room sprays. Plus, we get to take one home. Cool right?! I chose the Cool and Calm variant- a mix of Lemongrass, Lavender and Peppermint.Whoah! Okada’s Presidential Suite is the bomb! Imagine it has it own private spa room? That’s where us guests were pampered with a relaxing back massage.
There were also skin consultation stations located on selected areas in the suite. I did not hesitate to have my skin checked by a Kiehl’s skin consultant, because I want to know at least what’s the current condition of my skin. The results: Got some huge pores and oily skin. Yikes! But, it’s really nice to know that there are several Kiehl’s products that I can use to achieve my #skingoals.
On the other hand, I like a brand that helps communities or group of people as a way of giving back. Kiehl’s highlighted this in one the rooms where they presented how and where they source their ginger leaf extract- grown and collected by 14 local women in Hoa Binh and in the Bắc Giang province of Vietnam. The brand also provided education on sustainable and environmentally friendly farming techniques to the surrounding local community farmers in Vietnam. Tools were also provided to women collectors to improve their work conditions and productivity which strengthen their revenues.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE KIEHL’S GINGER LEAF & HIBISCUS FIRMING MASK
Kiehl’s chemists are proud to introduce their latest formulation…the Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask, a formula infused with two nature-powered ingredients that provides an immediate firming effect and a smoother-looking skin by morning.
- Botanical Hibiscus Seed Extract- Cultivated in Southern India, the Hibiscus Seeds are separated from their nutshells before being ground. The active fraction, constituted of Hydrolyzed Proteins, is then extracted from the seeds, purified and filtered to solely keep the efficacious benefits. The Hibiscus Seeds, whose flower is known to close during the night to preserve its nectar, provide the formula with instant and overnight firming benefits.
- Ginger Leaf Extract- Native to Vietnam in tropical Asia, the Ginger Leaf utilized in our formula has been widely employed for its roots in traditional Chinese and Ayurveda medicine as well as in Southeast Asia as a spice and flavoring agent in the cuisine. Carefully collected between March and October, the Ginger Leaves are then ground and their actives extracted before being used in our formula that reduces appearance of fine lines.
