Kiehl’s released some very thrilling news: the Rosa Arctica line will welcome two new members this September, Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream and Rosa Arctica Eye. These two products were inspired by the incredible demand for the original Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream introduced in 2011. We couldn’t be more excited — this is our FAVORITE Kiehl’s moisturizer, it even snagged a prime spot in our Top 11 of 2011, and Kiehl’s President Chris Salgardo revealed to us last year that he is partial to it as well!
Like the classic formula, these new Rosa Arctica varieties harness the power of a rare “Resurrection Flower” to “wake up” skin cells to trigger the physiological reactions resulting in healthier, regenerated and more youthful skin. This miracle flower (official name: Haberlea Rhodopensis) is some biological wonder that can dry out completely and survive periods of dryness for up to 31 months and eventually resume normal growth within hours with only a few drops of moisture.
We love the thick creamy tub of Rosa Arctica, but totally appreciate the need for a lighter version. Here’s the scoop:
- Rosa Arctica Lightweight, $60, features the same benefits of Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream, in a lighter texture for those with normal to oily skin, or those who simply prefer a lighter texture.
- Rosa Arctica Eye, $44, is a unique balm formulation that helps provide instant visible results—thanks to mineral brighteners—instant hydration, and revitalizes the appearance of skin in the eye area over time, smoothing crow’s feet and lifting the eye contour area.
What do you think of these? We’ll let you know our thoughts once we try!
