Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
I have been using Kiehl’s products from past many days now. In fact since the brand sent the sample sizes so I took the whole kit along with me to Singapore and I am almost finished using everything by now. And before the empty bottles find their way to the bin, I would review everything this week itself.
What is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream?
- 24 Hour, light-textured hydrator
- Reduces moisture loss
- Continuous water replenishment throughout day
- Inspired by our original, Ultra Facial Moisturizer
- Not tested on animals
Application : Apply to clean facial skin day or night as needed to combat moisture depletion.
Kiehl’s is to open in September in India as yet to I am not aware of the prices $24 for a 1.7 oz jar.
For Skin Types : Dry, Normal to Dry, Normal, Oily, Normal to Oily.
My experience with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream:
- Kiehl’s Ultra Facial cream is a pure white cream with a texture that is between gel and a regular cream.
- It gets absorbed in the skin easily but during super humid days it used to take a while to get completely absorbed and I had to wait for a a minute or so before applying my makeup. I would say this is not for you if you have oily skin.
- I am very happy with the way it moisturized my skin. In fact, on days when my skin really craves for moisture, this cream calms my skin and makes it supple.
- On the very day I landed in Singapore, I got a few dry patches on my skin, I applied this cream and by evening my skin was repaired and it looked soft. :yes:
- It has a little medicinal smell when you smell it in the jar but when you apply it on your face you barely smell anything.
- It has glycerin, avocado oil, olive fruit oil, rice barn oil and soya bean oil- everything that my dry skin would thank for.
- It’s a lovely hand cream also.
- I have never faced any skin irritation on my skin with this. It has always and always calmed my skin.
- The long list of ingredients scare me a little especially the presence of urea and parabens.
Here is a little cosmetics analysis list I picked up from here. The happy, neutral, and sad smileys reflect the ingredients status in the cream. :
Overall I liked the cream so much that this might even become my HG cream in coming days. It’s just the right combination of moisturizing and quick absorption.
Here is the swatch:
