Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate Review

Hello Beauties!

I want to shout out loud. The product, I am going to review, is my HG product. It is from Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate.  Now, let me tell you how I got it.  I got this as a sample from Kiehl’s.  I kept it in my bag for 6-7 months thinking this serum would come handy when I would go on a travel.  I did not use it for a long time. When my serum at home got over, I thought of using this. This small sample had a lot of product that lasted me for a week. I was head over heels and I was bowled over. I went and bought a full size bottle. Please read on to see how it did wonders to my skin.

12 months.

How To Apply:

Cleanse skin thoroughly prior to application. Apply over entire face twice daily (avoiding the eye area). Can be used alone or layered under your usual moisturizer. In case of contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly. As the formula blends into the skin, you may experience a feeling of warmth. This sensation is normal.

My Experience with Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate:

This is a “God-sent” product. I know I sound a little odd when I say “God sent,” but truly, I always had very uneven skin tone, I never felt comfortable the way my uneven skin tone looked in the mirror, but this completely changed the way I look in the mirror now!

Okay, when I had used up the sample, I already saw tremendous improvement in my skin texture. Even my husband complimented me, yipeee. So, I bought the full size bottle. This is a very simple bottle as is the case with all Kiehl’s products’ packaging except the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

It has a black color pump. It is easy to pump out the required product. I use two pumps both day and night. It is white in color. I warm it between my fingers and apply. It gives a warm sensation (that is completely normal). I let it sink into my skin and then follow it with my night or day time moisturizer. It has reduced acne scarring and the skin is even toned, radiant, and flawless.  I feel confident when I apply makeup. Wrinkles and fine lines, can’t talk as I don’t have any, but I am sure it would do wonders for those issues as well.

I don’t know how long the product would last, as this is my first bottle, but I think at least 3 months as I have been using it for a month now.

It has Vitamin C 10.5% that is better than retinol, people who have sensitivity to retinol, they can use this without hesitation.

Pros of Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate:

  • Has 10.5% Vitamin C.
  • Makes skin tone even.
  • Makes skin radiant.
  • Gives flawless skin.
  • Reduces acne scarring.

Cons of Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate:

Apart from price, can’t think of anything!

Would I Repurchase Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate?

Yes, till the time Kiehl’s discontinues this or till it stops working on my skin!  Overall, I think I don’t have to say anything else, because I will keep on going. I would just like to say that many products claim a lot without giving any results, but this one delivers. I highly recommend this.

    1. Hi Surabhi@Womanatics!!! I have dry combination skintype ( as per clinique) but i feel I am very dry in winters and oily in summers and acne prone, I have problematic skintype!
      It is not available online but Kiehl’s have a store in Delhi,

      and product info is here,default,pd.html?start=1&cgid=face-serums

  1. At what age should we start using these products ? Im 27 had havent started using anti aging stuff yet ,….but I always wonder whether I should start now or wait till i reach 30 ?

    1. Supriya…..these days age does not matter at all…the kind of environment we are in and the kind of stress we have in our lives….so we have to be proactive!! after 25 we MUST start using them!!

        1. That is true ,….. this is the feedback I have heard from lot of ppl,..25.. prevention is better than looking for remedies ,……

  2. Wow.. God sent huh.. I have sensitive acne prone skin.. With acne marks.. Shall i try this?? Where will i get it online???

    1. Hi Pia, I have problematic skintype with acnes and there marks ofcourse…do try this…I am sure, you would love it!

  3. neha, I am soooooo glad you reviwed this product because i would have never been able to. I have been using it for almsot 2 months now and i can see a visible difference in my skin but honestly I really cant pin point what exactly. my skin looks smoother and better and nicer but if you ask me to pin point exactly what it has done for my skin i dont think i can. I so wanted to hear someone else’s opinion about it. I love it and totally agree with your review. 🙂

    1. Thanks Rati, I have problematic skin, by that I mean, every season it changes, acne through out the year, I had very patchy and uneven skintone, Trust I no longer have that, Moreover, I had very tired looking skin but it is a different case now……..yipppeeeeee.

      Your skin looks flawless & perfect…how will you see any change 😉

      1. hihih no i have but really i would have not been able to review it because there hasnt been any major point i would have been able to list. but it really works. 🙂 thanks 🙂

  4. i loved the review. God send sounds sooo good. is it just me or do others also feel that approx 3K for a product like this one is totally worth it? 🙂 The pice seems quite ok for a product that works so well

    1. Aru, it is pricey but this product is for people who have skin issues and if you are willing to spend.It really works, still I would say, when it comes to kiehl’s try the sample,

  5. oh i remember lemon+glycerin+rose water formulation try that too in winter its great …. my mom used that regularly and her complexion was fairer and fairer…could recall why it is warm sensation on application.

    I have quite oily and sensitive skin , somehow glycerin won’t suit me…. i sweat and cheeks turn rosy as if am blushing :()

    Hi Rati ,

    as you have used both ..Fabindia Vitamin E Cream De-pigmentation and Kiehl’s , which one you found better : )

    1. Hi Nidhi, I have fair complexion 🙁 but uneven 🙁
      All these years I have tried everything one can think of, glycerin,lemon, rose water, multani mitti, Turmeric & Besan paste and all sought of stuff 🙁 but as I too have sensitive and problematic skin, rarely anything suits me, that is why I adore this product. People who do not have much issues can skip it for sure 🙂

  6. Neha thanks for reviewing this! I have been wanting to buy some Kiehl’s products for sometime so guess I’ll splurge on it this weekend 🙂
    I have super oily skin throughout the year, will it work on me?

    1. Aarbee, It is for all skin types but I would say try a sample first, I did that too and when I saw the results I bought the full size. You will get a feel of how it feels on your skin. 🙂

  7. Neha, the bottle seems semi transparent to me in the pictures. Is that just a trick of the light or is it clear? The reason I’m asking is because the potency of Vit C reduces when exposed to light as it gets oxidised pretty easily.

  8. You are right Kiki, do try to keep it in dark place as Vitamin C oxidizes but this product does not yayayayaya…….i kept the sample for 7 months and it did not oxidize at all! In this bottle u can’t make out how much is left and all.

  9. Hi Neha – How long did it take for you to see the effects? I have pigmentation on my chin and forehead. Wondering if it will work on that .. 🙁
