Can this cleanser be used with a clarisonic? For those who don't have a clarisonic, they suggest to not use anything with exfoliating beads and things like that because it can damage the skin I believe. Also, is it like a gel consistency or is it a thicker cleanser?

i have combination oily skin, would this work?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
Best Answer: i, too, have combination oily skin and this worked well for me. i bought both it and facial fuel for my long-time beau (also combo, but tending toward oily) to try two years ago. he liked the facial fuel so much he didn't even try the ultra facial oil-free cleanser, so i took it home and used it. to be honest, i was skeptical at first, because the ingredients make it so rich-feeling, but it worked well on my entire face. i liked the fact that i could wash my face frequently without worrying that i would dry parts of it out. however, i decided i preferred the facial fuel almost tingling sensation and ended up buying it for myself (even tho i'm a woman). i hope this helps.

Where is the Foaming Non Detergent Washable Cleanser and why didn't you replace it with another claenser? Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser does not work as well for combination skin.
A shopper on Apr 12, 2012
Best Answer: I have just started using this project over the last 6 months. I have combination skin and have found the product very effective though the Fall and Winter months. It has provided the right amount of oil control but has not been overly abrasive. I have yet to determine if I will need something a stronger as the summer months roll in.

After washing my face with this, my face feels "rubbery" and not smooth at all. I'm not sure if this is a sign that the cleanser washed my face really well, or it stripped my face of TOO much oil? Help please? Thanks!
Lin M on Sep 18, 2013
Best Answer: Well, this cleanser is right for the oil-skin. Your situation is common after using this rich foam cleanser. If you use it twice when washing, it will be feel great. Hope to help you.

i have some acne on my forehead and cheeks is this product good to buy?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2013
Best Answer: This product is great to buy for my acne which was on my cheeks + around my jaw line. I found that with drinking a lot of water, it helped to temper my skin from huge bumps I was experiencing and minimize redness. I was seeing differences in 2-3 weeks.

I was diligent with washing my face 2x/day, morning and before bed, but I also used K's toner and acne cream (white, skinny tube).

A shopper on Jun 1, 2012
Best Answer: Dark spot treatment and any Kiehl's treatments should be used on clean dry skin. Always wash and dry first and then apply. If you are using during the day make sure to apply sun screen as the last step of your regiment.

I have recently started to use this product and love it, but wish it came in a smaller size for travel. Do you have any ideas for how to pack a smaller quantity, perhaps 1-2 ounces? Thank you.

I like to remove my makeup before I use the Ultra Facial Oil-Free line (cleanser, toner and gel). I haven't found a Kiehl's makeup remover yet. What do you recommend?
