How to Apply Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion

Heritage Highlight
When our chemists developed Kiehl’s iconic multi-purpose facial toner in 1964, its popularity took off almost from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic & fabulous product I have used this amazing product for OVER a DECADE! Used as an ‘after shave’ following my daily’wet Shave’..result invigorating, skin looks & couldn’t ‘do with out it’ !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Been using for around 18 months and I honestly wouldn’t use anything else now. Keeps breakouts in check and when I do get the occasional blemish (how wonderful it is to write ‘occasional’!) this product definitely reduces the redness and any swelling/angry-ness. Would 100% recommend if you’re prone to breakouts and are on the normal/oily side. Probably would be too drying on dryer skin I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works wonders! This genuinely is what saved my horrible acne. I have been struggling with acne for a while, trying to get rid of it. i got gifted this product, and used it, and with 3 days, my skin cleared up. definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok...?!.. Recently bought this and used with the cleanser- feels very chalky dry to the skin but it definitely is mattifying if you need alot of oil control. i AGREE with others you definitely need a lot of time to dry before putting on other products because it will bunch up into balls in your skin. When i put a heavy moisterizer on top and a heavy sunscreen it seems to work ok but other than that i felt it come off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird Product I replaced this toner with my oil free toner from Kiehls since it helps with acne. I am going to be honest I have no idea if it actually works because you can not put on moisturizer right after you apply this. You have to wait a good 30 to 45 mins and then put on your moisturizer. I do not have time to wait for it to dry down. I will try another one or go back to the oil free toner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I’ve used this product since I was about 18 (now 26) when I suffered with bad acne, I tried everything including medication from the doctors, I’ve used the full blue herbal range as part of my daily routine since then and I’ve never looked back, fantastic products!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feels weird I was hoping this would help my acne. It feels so uncomfortable on my skin. I wanted to keep using it to at least find out if it helps my skin, but my skin feels like chalk after I use it. I am upset that Kiehls does not provide shipping for returns/exchanges. Online orders cannot be returned in store. This takes the convenience of ordering online away.

How long is the astringent good for?

Asked by: Craftymama
Hi there! This product has a 12 moth period after opening time in which it will maintain its efficacy. Our products have been tested to have a 3-year shelf life if unopened and stored at normal room temperature, during which they will retain their integrity and perform as expected. If your product looks and smells the way it normally does, it is good to use. We hope this was helpful!

how to use it? do i apply moisturise after this ?

Asked by: Monique Cata
I apply mosisturizer after my face is dry from astringent. My son also uses the astringent and he does not apply moisterizer afterwards. So whatever preference you have.
