Review: Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleasing Foaming Face Wash & Herbal-Extract Toner


Hi everyone!
Today I want to review the trial-size products I got from Kiehl's event a month ago (event report here) which are Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Facial Wash and Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner.


Name: Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash
Brand: Kiehl's
Origin: USA
Content: 1.0 fl. oz. / 30 ml (sample size)
7.8 fl. oz. / 230 ml (full size)
Price: IDR 350.000 (full size)

Ingredients

The sample size comes  in a tube while the full-sized ones come in a pump bottle.


I can't say much about the texture since this product basically has the same texture as other cleansing foams. The clear liquid will turn to white once it combines with sebum (I wonder why the color is different from the full-sized one?). I really love how smooth it feels on my face.
As this product doesn't contain any artificial fragrances, it has this kind of herbal scent. Quite strong, for me, but not to that extend actually.


It was said that this Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive ones so I though this product would work really well on me. But this product really disappointed me. You asked why? My skin got breakouts >< I thought it was purging at first so I used the product for about a week but after a little search, it wasn't purging but breakouts instead since I tried to use it some more but my skin condition worsened (purging usually happens on T-zone are while I got acne on my usually clear cheeks TT) so I had to stop the usage and went back to my usual facial wash. My skin is now better after stopping the usage and below is the photo of my "angry" skin (beware! ><) I usually have clear cheeks but you can see in the photo below TT



Conclusion


+ Gentle on the skin
+ No artificial fragrances
+ Natural herbal scent
+ No artificial coloring

- Causes breakouts
- Pricey!


Ratings: 2,5/5





Name: Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner
Brand: Kiehl's
Origin: USA
Content: 1.4 fl. oz. / 40 ml (sample size)
8.4 fl. oz. / 250 ml (full size)
Price: IDR 420.000 (full size)

Unlike the facial wash, the Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner sample size is exactly the mini version of the full-size which comes in a bottle.



Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner is a brownish-transparent liquid toner which has the same texture as any other toners. If you look carefully, there are real Calendula flowers inside. However, I don't like how this toner feels sticky on my face when applied, although the stickiness will fade after about ten minutes or so.
Similar to the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner has the same herbal scent but a little bit stronger in my opinion.


Like the facial wash, the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash was also said to be suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. But yet again, this Kiehl's Calendula line disappointed me since it doesn't suit my skin type well (I tried to stop the toner usage but I still used the facial wash and vice versa but the result was still the same, breakouts TT). And again, I had to stop the usage of this toner ><


Conclusion


+ No artificial fragrances
+ Natural herbal scent
+ No artificial coloring

- Causes breakouts
- Feels sticky on the skin
- Pricey!


Ratings: 2,5/5

Sadly no :(
As I said, this skin care line from Kiehl's doesn't suit my skin type well TT
