an all-in-one swipe for summer.
Seeing all the fancy products in my friends' bathrooms makes me feel like a freak sometimes, but apparently I'm not alone in my less-is-more approach. Kiehl's just started selling a two-in-one product at Barneys that mixes natural astringent (mostly camphor and menthol) with a mild lotion.
It's not for everyone (if you have extremely dry or extremely sensitive skin, or you're already using a regimen like Proactiv that works for you, skip it...) but if you get a little oily on warmer days, and if you generally spend less time on your skin than you do on an acquaintance's Twitter feed, this stuff saves time and face.
PS Although we like to photograph ourselves after product use to show how they work on real girls, I'm not gonna put pictures of myself here because it seems weird. If you really need to know, just plug my name into Facebook and click away.
Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, $16. Now at Barneys, or Kiehl's stores nationwide.
