Weekly Worship: DKNY, Kiehl's & REN


DKNY Be Desired

Price: £69.00 / $88.00 100ml

Stockists: John Lewis /

DKNY's Be Desired is a fragrance classic that I have recently fallen back in love with. Containing top notes of grapefruit, orange, blackcurrant and violet leaf, middle notes of Turkish rose, jasmine, cassis and black locust and bottom notes of cedar, cashmere wood and amberwood, this fresh, floral and fruity fragrance smells absolutely divine.

Be Desired is a super feminine fragrance that is pretty and delicate...but also powerful. The eau de parfum lasts for hours after application and only two or three spritzes are needed to make an impact!


Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion

Price: £40.00 / $25.00 75ml

Stockists: /

The Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion is, without doubt, the best physical exfoliator I have ever used. I know this because I have been using this bad boy for over six years and nothing I've tried during that time has come close.

This facial scrub is formulated with micronised shells; naturally occurring crystalline silica derived from unicellular microscopic algae. And the Kiehl's Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion is packed full of these natural exfoliators! So much so that the scrub removes dead skin cells and dirt with just one gentle stroke - no need for rigorous, skin-irritation application here!

The results from using this skin-changing scrub are instant. Every time I use this product, my skin is left soft, glowing and gorgeous. I will never stop loving it!


REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial

Price: £32.00 / $60.00 40ml

Stockists: / Sephora

Like the Kiehl's product above, the REN Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial is also an exfoliator. However unlike the Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion, this is a chemical exfoliator; meaning it is free of psychical exfoliants and is (in most cases) designed to be left on the skin.

The Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial promises to brighten, revitalise and deeply hydrate the skin while you sleep and it does each of these very well. So much so that it has become one of my winter skin saviours. It has a thin and creamy consistency that applies easily and sits on the skin comfortably. Unlike other chemical exfoliators, the Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial doesn't irritate the skin - the only thing I experience is slight redness the morning after application. As with all REN products, the Wake Wonderful Night-Time Facial is 100% natural and 100% fabulous!
