Men’s Perspective: Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Lightweight Face Cream

Is your face dry and lacking that special something during these dry winter months? Well guess what? Mine ISN’T, LOL! Seriously I am going to let you in on my secret, Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Lightweight face cream [1.7oz $60]. I have been using this as my regular a.m. moisturizer and it has gotten me through what I would otherwise call a lackluster appearance brought on by poor hydration.

This cream which is the lighter-weight version of it’s big sister the original Rosa Artica, shines because it gets your face from zero to hero in just a few days’ time. The scene: Me standing in the mirror saying to myself “(Expletive)…You look like… (Expletive)” and then I remembered I had this little jar of something by Kiehl’s. I figured my friends rave about this brand so let me see what all the chatter is about. Things could not be any worse than what I was facing in the mirror. A month into what might be a transformation of sorts and my face looks and feels moisturized. I also like the fact that over time I even see a “Glow” on my face from using it and a glow isn’t half bad.


The Rundown:

  • Lightweight moisturizer
  • Anti-aging cream formulated with rare “Resurrection Flower”
  • Protects skin from future damage
  • Reduces lines and wrinkles
  • Improved firmness and dramatic restoration of hydration
  • Use twice daily for maximum results

As a word of note I just wanted to say the cream works best in conjunction with the consumption of water. You would think I would not have to say that but miracles happen from the inside out, I think.
