Today I bring you Kiehls Abyssine Cream + from my May Birchbox. This thick cream is intended to help slow down cellular aging in your skin. But unfortunately it didn’t really work for me. I loved the velvety texture of the cream and how it was thick and absorbed nicely in my skin. Here’s the “BUT”; it made me break out big time. I know that often creams take awhile for your skin to get used to, and that you need to use them for awhile to stop the breakouts. I don’t usually need the trial period, but I gave it a week, I even used spot treatments on the pimples that surfaced, but the breakout just continued to get worse. It was the worst breakout I have had in 10 years, and that was after a week using the cream. I stopped using it and within three days my face stopped having pimples on it.
I suspect that if you had older skin and hadn’t had pimples in a long time that it might work for you, but for me, no, not so much.
Will I buy this again? No
Will I finish the sample? No, I prefer my face without pimples.
