Kiehl’s Age Defender Cleanser
Why weigh down your load with individual products when you can bring one multi-tasker that can tackle two benefits in one? Kiehl’s Age Defender Dual Action Exfoliating Cleanser is a two-in-one daily facial wash and mask that can help you save room in your carry-on bag. Formulated with Moroccan Lava Clay and Phytic Acid, the unique black-hued formula deeply cleanses while exfoliating to remove excess oil and dirt for a refreshed, younger-looking appearance. For a deeper clean, use the formula as a five-minute mask to help break down dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, smooth the appearance of fine lines, and improve skin’s overall texture.
