A few months ago I was looking for products to replace my super-pricey skincare regimen. As an active woman in her early 30s who is prone to blackheads and occasional whiteheads and hormonal breakouts, I have found it challenging to find skincare products that work consistently well for me. After reading a lot of product descriptions and reviews on Birchbox, I decided to try Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion (BAHL) with the Blue Herbal Moisturizer (BHM) and Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion (PML). I used these three products, along with oil-free sunscreen, for two months and found this combination to reliably keep my complexion matte and oil-free and to keep acne at bay. Of the three products, the BAHL was my favorite. I found the BHM and the PML to feel a bit thick and gunky and have since stopped using them. However, the BAHL seems to be a new go-to in my skincare regimen.
