Kiehl’s: Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash and Micro-Blur Skin Perfector

I am excited to share with you two new products from my favorite skincare line: Kiehl’s. Kiehl’s has been my ‘go-to’ skincare line for the past two years. So, let’s talk about these two new kids on the block. One is a cleanser called ‘Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash’ and the other is a skin treatment product named ‘Micro-Blur Skin Perfector’…


Let’s discuss the Micro-Blur Skin Perfector first. It’s a new favorite!…

It is so good to my skin! I use it every morning after I hydrate. I use this whether I put on foundation afterwards or not. I can’t say that this hides my imperfections but it does blur the appearance of large pores and fine lines…


This product glides on. It doesn’t pill up even if you tend to overwork it. Truthfully, it doesn’t take much product and lays across the skin smoothly. The sample I put on the back of my hand is enough for me to use across my entire face and down my neck…

It’s subtle but it does soften the spots on my skin. There is a slight fragrance that might give issue to those with a very sensitive nose but, I found that the smell didn’t linger one bit. It’s not claiming to be a primer but I use it as such. Since this is recommended for all skin types and is paraben-free, you should try it!

Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash is a long title for a face wash that is simple. It contains no parabens and is soap-free. It really cleans your face; makeup and all! This wash foams up good and sudsy, which is surprising since it contains no soap. It smells just like Calendula flowers and, is such a wonderfully relaxing fragrance to unwind to at the end of the day. I look forward to using it because of that!…



You will notice that this is recommended for normal to oily skin types. Well, I sure don’t have oily skin. So you can imagine how skeptical I was that this was going to make may skin feel OK after a good washing. So, yes….WOW! I always follow up after washing with a moisturizer anyway (I use Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Concentrate at night) however, my skin didn’t feel extremely tight or dry afterwards. It just felt super clean. And I loved how it tackled removing my makeup without needed to use a separate product for that…


Even my husband likes using Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. He likes the foaming action and how clean his skin feels afterwards. Also, since the fragrance is more of an herbal note, I think this wash is great for men and woman. It sure doesn’t take but a partial pump to get enough wash to completely wash my face and neck.

You can purchase these two products and other awesome Kiehl’s items from their website, stand-alone stores that are popping up across the country or, at fine department stores like Nordstrom’s and Dillards.


These products were provided to me for review. These are my own, honest opinions. 

  • GlitteryGlossy

    I need that deep cleanser!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I bet you’d really like it too!

  • I´ve never tried any Kiehl´s products, but these sounds wonderful.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      They are very generous with their samples. If you can get to a Kiehl’s counter or store, they will set you up with some that I’m sure you’ll love.

  • I have loved Kieh’ls ever since you introduced me to them! I think I would love these two products – I like how it didn’t cover your freckles on your hand, but it just softened them so beautifully. I love trying new products, but I keep coming back to the Midnight Recovery Complex. It just helps my skin so much!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Freckles….you are a DEAR!!! 😉 I love that the associates there have deep knowledge about their products. You leave with not only great products but an education too.

  • Thank you for this review! Kiehl’s has never done me wrong.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Same here, Sheila!

  • The micro blur perfector sounds awesome

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I know it has a tint to it but love that it doesn’t alter my skin color.

  • I love the perfector, it’s so fantastic!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It’s not like any of the other ‘blur’ type of products out there either. This one makes my skin soft-feeling too, for a long time.

  • The perfector would be great with people that have uneven skintones

    • Kimberly Purcell

      That’s exactly who it is made for.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Oh the perfect or sounds amazing

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I enjoy using it every single night, yes!

  • marciaf

    I’m so happy that Kiehl’s made the micro-blur. I’m using it every day and noticing a difference.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I’m using it daily too, Marcia.

  • cindyprimebeauty

    Both of these sound amazing!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I think you’d like them, Cindy. If you get a chance to stop in at the Kiehl’s counter, do so!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I need that pore perfector. Aging skin = enlarged pores.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I won’t be without it. The pores on my nose and now my chin are so noticeable.

  • Justina

    These are freaking awesome. I love them.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Top-knotch! You are so right!

  • Calendula is a great skin ingredient.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Kiehl’s has lots of products that use herbal ingredients and they infuse that with the science of skincare. That’s what makes them winners to me.

  • I love this brand..and so does my husband!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      How cool is that!! My husband likes several of their men’s line items. He goes with me when I go to the Kiehl’s store and he is very impressed that the associates are not pushy but just educators. I guess that’s because he’s a professor and can appreciate that.
