Rated 4 out of 5 by Newyork2015 Best for acne or blackhead prone skin
For about 15 years I have been on several regimes, moisturizers, brands etc for acne prone skin, including accutane for sometime. Since about a year I have been on Tretinoin to help with acne hyperpigmentation, and benzoyl peroxide face wash (4%, twice a day) to control outbreaks. This regime undoubtedly leaves the face dry with consistent minimal peeling. It was hard to apply foundation with all the peeling.
However, I bought this during winter and have been applying it everyday, either under a sunscreen or under foundation or as a midnight recovery cream and I have noticed reduced outbreaks/blackheads and my skin is extremely soft and supple. It goes on slightly greasy, but moisturizes your face for maybe 12 hours and more. I really wish it were in a tube as I carry it everywhere with me and tube is easy to carry and dispense.
Rated 5 out of 5 by YWIDJAJA Worth every penny!
I started using this product when I moved to East Coast. I needed heavier cream to treat my dry skin due to the harsh New England winter. Not only does this cream work perfectly well, it is also reasonably priced. I'm using it all year round now. I can't imagine what would my skin be without this product. Thanks, Khiel's!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChiberiaGirl Great for Chiberia Winters
I have dry skin and this is the best product I have found to keep my skin moisturized, especially now that I have moved to Chiberia. I travel a lot for work and flying is very hard on the skin. This product is my savior. I use it both night and day. It is a little greasy but you can apply a little loose powder to solve that problem during the day.. A little goes a long way. Reading other reviews I can't figure out how someone could say it lasts for 5 months and then gives it a 3 for value. It's not ridiculously expensive like all the hyped department store beauty cremes that sell for $100+ because of the fancy jars and bottles. I find most Kiehl's products to be a good value. Simple packaging and quality ingredients are why I love this line.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KTLN528 Extreme Moisture!
I previously used Ultra Facial Cream and love it, but in the winter my face gets extremely dry (like when I stretch my face it feels like it's going to crack open dry), so I wanted something even more hydrating than UFC and decided to try this product. I was skeptical when I first put the product on my face, as it felt very oily and I was afraid it was going to cause breakouts, but this cream is amazing! No breakouts, no clogged pores, no more super dry face! Plus it adds a dewiness under makeup that "shines" through - something a girl with very dry skin doesn't get with other moisturizers. Thank you Kiehls for this wonderful moisturizer - I will never be without it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabu I have extremely dry skin and for many many years have had trouble finding a product that is moisturizing, but not greasy. After hundreds of dollars and countless breakouts, I found the one product that has met all my needs. If you have sensitive and dry skin, this is the product for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Joobil3e Very effective for dry skin!
I have neglected to address my dry skin until recently, and this moisturizer made my skin feel so soft and smooth after one single use! I use a number of Kiehl's products because I've always found them to be very effective, and this is simply another win. I use this as a night cream since the texture is a little heavy for me to use as a day cream (I use the Rare Earth Pore Minimizing Lotion during the day, which controls shine like no other), but it does absorb quickly. Love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by savvy perfectionnnn
i have the worse most sensitive allergic to every thing super dry face and have spent so much money on different moisturizers. either they made me break out, turn all shades of red, or just didn't moisturize enough and i would have to reapply multiple times a day. BUT THAT IS IN THE PAST!! this one is perfect for me! i could literally cry I'm so pleased with the results. good skin can really make all the difference with your self esteem!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fieldsy The search for the ultimate moisturizer is over.
I have true combination skin on my face with patches of very dry skin that flake and makes people think I have leprosy. My trouble areas are my temples and the sides of my nose.
I'm on my 2nd jar of Creme d'Elegance and I'm even thinking of getting another jar to keep at work for a hand cream. The texture is literally like butter - it feels amazing. Layer this over a Vitamin C serum for the ultimate combo.
I saw that there is now an Intense Hydration Facial Cream, but due to the reviews I'm going to stick to Creme d'Elegance. I have no problem paying $50 for a jar of moisturizer considering nothing in the pharmacy ever worked for me.
