Is this product Oil Free?
sasa s on Apr 12, 2013
Best Answer: If this person is worried about the slight sheen that accompanies each application, they shouldn't. It is all part 'n' parcel with the rehydration to
the skin. Depending on how far the skin has to rejuvenate itself, depends
on this individual's preference. After that, they can continue this product's
use, or use only when is necessary, as well as using any of Kiehl's lotions.

I cannnot use lotions with perfumes, does this have any in it?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2012
Best Answer: I have very sensitive skin and I cannot use moisturizers that contain perfume either, so I do not believe that this product contains any. I was hesitant to use Keihl's at first because I had been though multiple products and spent hundreds of dollars to find a solution tomy dry and sensitive skin. I asked for a sample in the store, took it home and applied it and realized I finally found the perfect moisturizer cream. I used many of their products (and like I mentioned, I have very sensitive skin). My husband also uses their men's line and loves it! I reccomend this product if you have sensitive skin, it will create soft, smooth skin without the feel of a heavy cream.

What SPF/facial sunscreen do you pair with this?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2014
Best Answer: I use it mostly at night or in the winter, when skin is very dry. Do not use a sun screen at such times.

I have mild acne, and sensitive skin which is also extremely dry. I know this product is not oil free, but is this okay to use for people with acne/acne prone skin?
Cassie H on Dec 9, 2012
Best Answer: I've used it for a couple of months and it hasn't caused me to break out and it's a very nice, moisturising cream--not too heavy and greasy.

Is this oil free?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2012
Best Answer: I don't know if it is oil free, but I do know that I loved it! I will definitely buy it again. It was a good cream to use during the winter when our house is so dry and the weather is harsh.

What is the texture? Light and creamy or thick and emollient?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2014
Best Answer: The texture is light and creamy, but the cream has enough moisture for my very dry skin. In the winter I use it during the day as well as night. It is light enough to work well under make-up with no sheen.

At night I use it with Kiehl's Midnight Recovery.

I am 65 and have been using the combination for almost 10 years. My skin looks great.
