Rated 1 out of 5 by MatthewPhiladelphia Not an acceptable replacement for Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream
When I went to the store to get a replacement for my Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream which I think I've used for 3-5 years, I was told it was no longer available and that they've streamlined the product line. She asked me if I used the blue or the green, and I told her the blue, so I was directed to this product. She said it was created with men in mind and it had the nice menthol scent men like, oh, and a hint of citrus. Well, this man doesn't like smelling like fruity menthol. There were other qualities she rattled off that men were supposed to like, but what choice did I have. Oh, and I HATE the "I'm a motorcycle-riding man" packaging!!
I just started using the product this week, and I really dislike it. Really, I dislike it. The texture is gross. It's almost wet and slimy going on the face. My face is sticky all day and evening (but, at least it isn't dry), and the smell really is a fruity menthol.
I have some samples of Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream that I can use for a while, but I'll have to find a new product like the old one. Anyone with ideas? I used to use Aramis and Origins, but it's been a while.
Bad move Kiehls!

This is the only firming and lifting men's lotion/cream I have ever used that separates itself from the lot. Other 'creams' seem to always resemble lotions, and none of them really stand out. This one is truly a nice, thick, dryer cream: a texture I would expect for firming and lifting. Contrary to other reviews, due to the thicker texture this is the only cream I've used that does NOT go on greasy when applied to my dry to normal skin. Consistent look and feel throughout the day. Has a soft menthol-ish scent. I am nearing 43 and people cannot believe my age, thanks to products like this, the bamboo toner, facial fuel face wash, midnight recovery, and quinoa extract serum.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Howard Worst purchase ever
I bought this because they were out of the Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream. First of all, I've been using Kiehl's products since the early 80s and I've never thrown a product away before. This made me feel like i was suffocating.
Terrible. Not sure what's going on with the Kiehl's men's line but all my favorites keep going away and the new line with black packaging feels inferior.

The only Kiehl product I wanted to return. Definitely for night time use as it goes on greasy and pretty much stays that way. Feels thick and heavy and on a warm or humid day it's suffocating. I can detect some benefit, but don't use it regularly enough for that to add up. If it wasn't so expensive I would have tossed it months ago.

Great product. I am 30 years old and although I do not really have wrinkles I want to ensure I do not get them. This product leaves your skin feeling great regardless of skin type gadecosmetics.se
Rated 1 out of 5 by JohnnyJohnny Worst Kiehl product in my experience.
I've used a lot of different Kiehl products with much success, so when I saw that the age defender was specifically designed for men, I jumped on it (33 year old male).
This may sound blunt, but this product did absolutely nothing for me. It just made my face look greasy/oily and it's not even like my skin got any better. It was a waste of money to me honestly, I bought the 2.5oz jar and couldn't wait to just be done with it.
I've switched over to the Super Multi-Corrective Cream which is a lot more expensive, but I've noticed the difference right away.

I was recommended this product by a very helpful Kiehl's sales associate since Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream(I have been using religiously)has been discontinued. I use Age Defender Eye Repair and I really like it so I assumed that I would also like this product. I was wrong...this product makes my facial skin extremely greasy no matter how small portion I applied. By the end of the day my face becomes so oily and so shiny with this product. I just wish Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream had not been discontinued. I hope I will see some other anti aging cream with a better performance.
Rated 5 out of 5 by blakerboo Deep Moisture, Soothing
I'm a big fan of this product. It provides a deep moisturizing effect without being too greasy or oily. I have normal to oily skin but using this doesn't make me break out at all or get blemishes. It absorbs well into the skin and has a light and fresh feeling.
There is a scent but it's pretty slight, so not overwhelming by any means. It doesn't tingle too much, it's more soothing than energizing. The other Facial Fuel creams offer more of a tingling/energizing effect.
I use the Age Defending Serum, then the eye cream, then this on last. This is the perfect combination for guys that want younger looking, refreshed skin.
