How to Apply:
-Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying moisturizer
-Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily
-Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor
-If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once every day or every other day

Cool Kiehl’s Fact:

When our chemists developed Kiehl’s iconic Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion in 1964, its popularity took off almost from the start. Over forty years later, we attribute its appeal not only to its superior quality, but also its versatility. Kiehl’s male patrons tell us they use it as a post-shave treatment to soothe skin and prevent razor discomfort. Legend has it that Andy Warhol was a fan!

Cinnamon Bark Extract is taken from the dried bark of cultivated trees and is considered to be of much higher quality than extract derived from leaves. It contains an essential oil that is not only recognized for its soothing effects, but is also known to have antibacterial properties.

SOH-dee'-uhm PEA SEE AY

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.

Is this better at acne fighting or moisturizing? I have oily skin, but it is really, really dehydrated so minimal moisture is not an option. I just started an entire new skin care routine, but I'm still on the hunt for a pretty decent acne fighting serum. Will this be a good go to? Thanks!

I need help finding a moisturizer, without sunscreen, for my teen son, 14 years old. He has normal to dry skin with an occasional breakout. Mostly a few blackheads in the T zone area.
He does a good job of washing his face. Uses deep pore cleanser and cross training sunscreen.
I just ordered him lip balm and eye cream (dark circles hereditary).
Please help me decide on a moisturizer for him that won't be too strong or too heavy. I'm hoping that he will add moisturizing into his routine in am and pm. I have tried with other products I have but he complains about the smells. I assume this is because those products are more for women?? Maybe a men's product, smell wouldn't bother him??
Thank you, I appreciate you taking time to help me with this ;)

Best Answer: Yes I would say you can use them together. I would use the serum first then let it sit for a moment then use the moisturizer.

I have dry and sensitive skin, and I'm looking into buying this lotion, but I was curious whether this goes well under make-up or if it is too drying?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2012
Best Answer: I have problematic skin, and I swim 4 times a week. On top of that, i wear a lot of makeup. I use this mositurizer daily, and it keeps my skin soft and smooth, even after all that abuse. I put it on, and then wait a few minutes and put my foundation on. It works amazingly!

Do you recommend this for the winter as well?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2012
Best Answer: It depends on where are you and your skin type. Basically not. It will dry out your skin. But if you have oily skin and live in a wet area, you can try.

Are Kiehl products for acne prone skin, fragrance free?
A shopper on May 18, 2012
Best Answer: I'm 41, still have the occasional breakout, and I love this stuff. Since I started using this on a daily basis, "shininess" and breakouts are far less frequent.
