[Ed. Note: I adore cool beauty products and love sharing great finds with my chickadees when I discover them, but it’s something I’ve gotten away from in recent years. Happily, I’ve just landed a hand from Tasha, an esteemed fellow lover of all things beauty and convenience! Look out for future pieces I will henceforth call “Tasha Tries …” spotlighting fantastic products that come across our radar, but for now, enjoy Tasha’s review of a new Kiehl’s product!]

Product: Kiehl’s Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash
What They Say: “The formula was developed to maintain the integrity of the skin barrier while cleansing, without stripping skin of its essential moisture.”
What Tasha Says: Let me start off by saying I am a huge Kiehl’s fan. Now with that being sad, I specifically love my Ultra Facial Cleanser, so I’m thinking, “can a facial wash really get better?” My conclusion? Yes! Meet my new favorite skincare product, Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash ($12.94 for 7.8 fl.oz). This creamy face wash is designed to cleanse normal-to-oily skin without stripping away moisture, and, above all, ensures that the skin barrier is protected. It has a smooth, rich texture and a very light, fresh lemon scent. It foams up just a little bit with water, and leaves my skin feeling very clean, without any tightness. I especially love it because even on my heavy makeup days, it washes absolutely everything off with ease. But it’s still super-gentle on the delicate areas — no stinging my eyes!
Kiehl’s claims this product will cleanse your skin, soothe and hydrate by utilizing calendula flower extract, and it does not disappoint. My skin felt hydrated all day long without feeling oily. It has a reasonable price point, and a little goes a long way! I love the rich texture, how extra gentle it is, and I am super partial to the lemon aroma. It keeps my skin feeling clean and happy. I definitely recommend this one!
