Kiehls Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate Review

This time I’m going to do a review about the best seller from KiehlsPowerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate. The product was bought randomly. I was hunting for a moisturizing serum and intrigued by the curious texture of this serum, and there we go.

Package of Kiehls Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

The Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate comes in a plastic brown bottle with a pump, classic Kiehls. To be honest this sort of package would never catch my eyes hadn’t it been highly recommended by the staff. There are sizes of 1.7 fl. oz., 2.5 fl. oz. or 3.4 fl. oz. to choose from on the official site. But if you ask me, 1.7fl. oz would be the best choice unless you are really in love with this particular product.

Texture of Kiehls Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate

The product is almost odorless which is good news for many people. It appears to be light cream at first, but when you warm it up, it would turn into water like lotion with white patches cluttering.

The most amazing bit comes when the product is spread out. It gives you a powdery touch and a warm sensation while blending into the skin. The lotion absorbs in no time before you have the chance to message it, leaving a smooth and soft skin. But by smooth, I mean powdery smooth. It’s like having finish powders on actually.

Someone couldn’t bear with the film sitting on the skin but I personally don’t care too much about it. So the texture is fine with me, what really concerns me is the reason for being powdery. Silicone contributes mostly to the smooth touch I gather, and though I rather like the texture, I won’t repurchase it for that.

Kiehls Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate Review on Ingredients

The essence of the product is the 10.5% pure Vitamin C  which makes it a powerful anti-aging treatment.


Generally the ingredient list is short and simple. But there’s one particular ingredient that really irks me – dimethicone as I underlined. Dimethicone a silicon-based polymer. It’s like covering your skin with a thin coat. But the thing is, it also keep everything else with the skin like bacteria and impurities. That’s why many reviews accused the serum of being irritating. So if you have a sensitive or oily skin, you might want to have a second thought before taking it home.

Review Overall

Summary: The product gives me a pleasant using experience, and it blends well with the following moisturizer. Also it can be used at daytime as well which is very rarely seen among Vitamin C serums. But for a serum with silicone in it at its price, it wouldn’’t be my favourite.
