Rated 3 out of 5 by DSLR Unpleasant aroma
While the product performs as advertised, the aroma is generally unpleasant. I won't be buying it again as a result. I'll revert back to the Facial Fuel SPF 15. Worth a shot, but they have to improve the aroma.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jwill0509 I originally sought out to refresh my stores of the Facial Fuel moisturizer at Nordstrom when the grooming associate exhorted me to try a new product that excelled at controlling oil. Like most men who use high quality grooming/shaving products I was very skeptical because I've read that most oil control products are excessively drying which can result in an overproduction of oil on the skin. The beauty consultant in the Nordstrom Kiehl's section could not have been nicer and had me try this product on the back of hand and I could feel the effect immediately!
After listening to her knowledge about the product I read the ingredient listing (checks out with me!) and decided to upgrade to this moisturizer even though it is a good $10 more than the flagship Facial Fuel at about the same size. The price aspect isn't too bad because I've noticed that I use a lot less of this product every morning that I would with Facial Fuel because a little bit really does go a long way. I'm an oil control convert!
Rated 4 out of 5 by M0851 I mean it works...
Basically gets the job done.
Immediate results, but the results aren't that amazing.
Hopefully they make a bigger 5oz bottle.
And it's pretty expensive, but I didn't find any cream out there that worked as well as this one did.
They say 24 hours, but it's more like 8 hours.
I mean I wish if this could do more, but it takes out like 60% of the oiliness and hydrates the skin, so I guess it's pretty good.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seth Incredible- absolutely worth a shot
I was a bit skeptical when I first ordered this product. I have always, and I mean always, had a huge problem with oily skin around my t-zone. However the rest of my skin has a dryness issue, so clearly I need to use a moisturizer. So I've always felt that the moisturizers I have used have increased the oiliness around my t-zone and made shininess a bit worse. This product is really amazing, I use it every day (with a heavier moisturizing cream at night) and I always have just enough skin hydration without greasiness. Now I will add one problem I've had while using the product- I work in a restaurant, so obviously there will be some grease in the air. After a long time working (i.e. running around frequently and always being on the go, not to mention the condition of the air in a steakhouse kitchen) I will occasionally still have SOME greasiness in my t-zone. However, I don't fault the product for this as I feel that the circumstances are somewhat unusual. The only reason I mention this issue at all is because you can't expect this product to work miracles, I certainly don't. But it DEFINITELY works better than any other moisturizer I have used before; nothing has met my needs as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by trevslayer It Works!!
I am still a new client and first started out by using Kiehls Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator that is supposed to prevent oily skin etc. Well my results were dismal and i was disappointed. I read a few reviews that mentioned they had tried this one with success. I figured why not give it a try. I love it. It goes on lite, moisturizes and prevents a shiny face. It does what it says it is. I normally never take the time to write reviews especially about things like this but i love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Junior I love this product!
It does what it says! I love the smell of it and the cool feeling when is apply to face it has a nice matte glowing look. I Also like is paraben free. I was tired to look for a men moisturizer without any sulfates and paraben and now I finally have it! It also works great with oil eliminator deep cleansing which also sulfate and paraben free. So it won't dryout your face like facial fuel scrub. Thanks Kiehls for making a better product line and less harsh chemicals.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Brennan Disappointing, and doesn't reduce oil
I have been using this line for a little over a week now, and I've go to say, I'm disappointed. The texture of this gel is great, and it does a good job of moisturizing, but my face is still oily.
I love Kiehls for body and hair, but I'm switching back to another company for face products. This oil eliminator doesn't even reduce the oil.
Rated 5 out of 5 by EmmonKy Very light moisturizer that nourishes skin without any grease of most moisturizers. Definitely notice less shine/grease on my face throughout the day. I also use with oil terminator face wash.
