SMR – 10.08.20


Hey everyone!

It’s been awhile since I did an SMR post and that’s partly because there have been SO many other discussions to be had and partly because I have been trying very hard to get through my current stash of skincare, so haven’t had anything new to share.

Well, the new Kiehls Daily Refining Milk Peel Toner is a major exception. It’s one of the only new things I’ve been trying out and I just love it. It’s such an excellent exfoliating toner. I know a lot of people disagree with exfoliating everyday but I think it’s essential. The problem has always been finding a gentle enough toner for everyday use. THIS IS IT. It’s very hydrating and moisturising so you don’t get any kind of irritation when you use it. More importantly, the salicylic acid in it means you still get a good amount of exfoliation.

I know a lot of you want a full review, so that will be up soon but my first impressions have exceeded my expectations of this toner!

Try it for yourself here.
