Sodium PCA is a naturally occurring humectant in the skin, partly responsible for the skin’s moisture-binding capacity. It is derived from amino acids and is highly water absorbing. Due to its moisture-binding ability, it is a high performance humectant which increases the skin’s softness when added to products.

I usually have problems with oily skin on my face, especially during the day. I needed a product that could leave my skin looking youthful (not very dry as is after i wash it) without the oil.

It's a great product that I use regularly.

Hello, is this a good product for the dry skin?
Rogman E on May 28, 2012
Best Answer: Depends how dry your skin is... I have relatively dry skin, and this product is by far the best facial moisturizer I've ever used. It doesn't over moisturize and keeps my skin with just the right amount of moisture all day long. I would highly recommend this for anyone with dry or combination skin.

Is this good for oily skin?
Felicity S on Jun 19, 2012
Best Answer: I've been using the Facial Fuel Transformer and decided to try the No-shine Hydrator because of my oily skin. I really don't see a difference between the 2 as far as shine control. I prefer the Transformer because it's a lighter weight and it helps reduce the signs of aging.

is this a moisturizer?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2013
Best Answer: I've used Facial Fuel Moisturizer for about 3 years now and I have to say it is the best moisturizer I've tried. People always comment on how healthy my skin looks, and at 64 that's quite a compliment. The best part about this product is that it is not greasy and i don't have to wash my face and reapply during the day.

Is this really the miracle I've been waiting for to help battle my constant shine throughout the day due to very oily skin? I know there is nothing out there to remove the oil without turning your skin into an arid and cracked dessert surface, but as much as I love my current routine with the facial fuel cleanser and moisturizer, I would love to incorporate something else to fight the shine that appears soon after washing my face without having to use those face blotters 24/7.
A shopper on Jun 7, 2012
Best Answer: I have recently purchased the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator and have been using it for about a week. As someone whose skin becomes more oily with every added product I apply, I was skeptical to add something new to my routine. Normally, I cleanse my face and then apply the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner as my moisturizer. It's simple, quick, and for the most part works for me...but my skin still gets oily throughout the day. When I saw the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator on the website, the name and description caught my attention and I wanted to give it a try. I think it's a great moisturizer if your someone who is looking for something very light in feel with no added sheen. The No-Shine Hydrator does have a mattifying effect without leaving your skin feeling dry and tight. I have found that the No-Shine Hydrator does keep the skin fairly matte for a couple hours after application, but it does not last all day. However, I have found that when I used the Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic and the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator together, my face stays matte all day. The Rare Earth Pore Refining Tonic ( which leaves your face feeling tight yet matte) and the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator ( which lightly hydrates your skin while leaving a matte finish) work well together, balancing each other out so you have a matte finish without that tight dry feeling.

If I were to buy this, should I still buy the Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+? Both seem like good products on their own, but as I am not too knowledgeable about these things, will it be advisable to use both products at once? Or would that harm the skin?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2013
Best Answer: I would probably recommend using both, first the Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator, then the Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+ on top of that. Just because I don't believe the former has any SPF in it at all and unless your skin is really sensitive or incredibly oily, you would be getting double the moisture using both. Although, for most people who have oily skin, the lack of or using an incorrect moisturizer can cause oily skin - when your skin doesn't get enough moisture, it produces an excess amount of oil to make up for it, therefore, oily skin in fact needs more moisture. My husband had oily skin until he switched to the Facial Fuel No-Shine and his skin is soft and non-oily now. So I'm encouraging him to add the SPF Guard to his routine to get the sun protection. You get quite a long use for it since you don't need too much. I would even recommend this to women with oily skin! Also, Kiehl's products so far are very gentle to skin and for the most part, are fragrance-free, which is nice if you have sensitive skin. Hope that helps!

Just bought this product after hearing so many great things about it. Would anyone suggest using it in the Fall/Winter months? Seems like most people are using it for the summer months. Thanks!
Wei T on Nov 24, 2012
Best Answer: My husband uses this for everyday, even in the winter - and we live in Wisconsin. He actually tried using a sample of another brand's moisturizer a couple times and switched back to this No Shine Hydrator, because it keeps his skin moisturized, without feeling oily. So far, he still loves it. Hope that helps!

Is this produce okay for acne prone skin?
Jeshua S on Sep 8, 2012
Best Answer: I bought this for my son, a collegiate decathlete, age 21, still acne prone. His regimen is Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub with a Clarisonic Mia in the shower. Benzaclin topical and Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator for moisture. Then sunscreen during practice.

Just purchased this product. Works great for my super oily skin. Wanted to know if this product is Non-comedogenic? I do know that it's oil free. But does it clog pores? Please let me know, thanks a lot guys.
A shopper on Jun 28, 2012
Best Answer: I was told it doesn't clog pores, and from what I can tell that's true. I haven't had issues and my skin is very sensitive to products that will clog pores. I also have seen a great response with my skin which tends to be oily.

Is this product alcohol-free?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2012
Best Answer: Unfortunately I am not in a position to assist with this query.
I purchased the product for my son who lives in NYC. He has not yet received this gift as apparently it is awaiting his collection at his local post office. As he never finishes work before 5pm, I really don't know when, if ever, he will be able to collect it.
I'm sorry I am unable to help Kiehl's on this occasion.

Can I apply Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle cream on top of this product, after shaving ??
John P on May 6, 2012
Best Answer: Both products are moisturizers, so technically you would only need to use one, I would suggest the No-Shine Hydrator for day since it is lightweight and the Anti Wrinkle cream at night.
