I love all of Kiehls products. But this one was a disappointment. I broke out from it and it just felt greasy. I'll stick with my regular products. It was just a waste of money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TXKiehls Great for summer months!
I live in Texas and have oily/combination skin. I use this about 6 months out of the year - mid-spring to mid-fall - along with the Herbal Blue cleanser. And I love it! It helps prevent breakouts. I don't typically have full-blown acne, but this helps control mini-breakouts around my hairline, chin and other sensitive areas. For me, the Blue Herbal products are a little drying during the fall and winter, so I switch over to the Ultra Facial Cleanser then. But for the hot and humid months, this is the best! I never have issues with flaking - I just wait until it dries to put on makeup. That should solve the problem - treat it the same as you do primer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by citrussun A Nursing Student's Salvation!!
This stuff is amazing!!! I have oily, acne-prone skin and am a nursing student, which means I'm under a crazy amount of non-stop stress and am often lacking in the hydration department. Meaning that I'm often breaking out. I used to use other products (from other companies that I don't need to mention on here) and decided to give this a try. This has saved my skin! Now I only need to wash my face with traditional black soap, maybe use a toner if I am feeling up to it, and applying this to my face and my face is acne-free! It is such a blessing to have this to save my skin. Now I hardly wear make up, and when I do, I almost can't wait to wash it off because this makes my skin so beautiful. Ugh, yes! Thank you!
Rated 3 out of 5 by ladylene Mattifying and Good Texture
I use this along with the Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and they work very well together. I have extremely oily skin and my skin feels very soft after using these products together. For someone anything but oily skin, this might feel too dry for you. I feel like it may be a bit drying on me because after a while, my skin produces quite a bit of oil to compensate which is not the case when I use other regimens from the Kiehl's line. This goes on really smooth but be sure you rub it in well bec if you don't, it will leave white flakes.

This moisturizer is amazing.
I have awful, uncontrollable, shiny, oily skin. I use this product in conjunction with the plumping serum first, followed by the pore minimizer. This goes on last, before my makeup. I let it dry for about 3 minutes before applying my makeup. I have noticed a few flakes when I exfoliate my skin at night, but in a good way.
I have used this for only 4 days and my acne is subsiding. My skin feels plump and hydrated, and very soft!
Rated 5 out of 5 by andits7 not as bad as everyone says it is
I got a sample of this and where I work I have to wear makeup. This DOES NOT make your makeup flake off or whatever other reviews have said. If you truly have oily acne prone skin then this is perfect for you. Maybe the other people who say make it flake off don't wear primer under their makeup, I don't know. But honestly I love this moisturizer. it makes my skin silky smooth and it does mattify like the description says. I have noticed I don't get as many blemishes anymore but I use the Blue Herbal cleanser as well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bayerischfrau Love this stuff
I read the reviews before purchasing this, but decided to try anyway. I noticed that you get the peeling if you rub it in too much. I find it odd, but i just put it on and let it soak in and it doesn't peel-even under my makeup. I've also found that you should exfoliate at least twice a week and it'll soak in better, thus getting rid of the film. I love this stuff and it has helped my acne more than anything else.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SaraJohnson good but not under makeup
I like that this stuff is mattifying, but as far as it going well under makeup? .... not so much. When being applied under makeup this stuff will peel off leaving your skin looking like you have a nasty peeling sunburn underneath. I would however recommend using this when you do not plan on wearing makeup over, it mattifies and it stays that way for a long time... even with my oily skin.
