CHESS-nut EK-strakt

Chestnut Extract is derived from the Horse Chestnut Tree. Originally grown in Asia and northern Greece, this tree produces fruits made up of a spiny capsule that resembles a walnut. In skin care, this extract is used to improve the skin’s barrier function, thereby helping the skin to retain and restore its lipids.

Hello,
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 ;)

Is this good for use if you have a beard? I'm trying to get my boyfriend to start using products that are actually made to be used on the face, and he's got a beard. I notice a lot of aftershave products from Kiehl's (which is the brand I love and use for my skincare, so I want to get him using it too), but nothing geared toward guys with some scruff. Any help is appreciated! Thanks
Chelsea M on Dec 11, 2013
Best Answer: My boyfriend loves it. Before I met him, he didn't use any moisturizer at all and the dry skin aged him. I had him start using my Kiehl's moisturizer and eventually bought him this one. He doesn't have a full beard, but doesn't shave on the weekends or vacations. (I love the scruff.). It works well everyday-scruff or not. He loves the fresh feeling; I love his soft skin.

Does this Facial Fuel have an aroma or scent? I'm hoping it does.

Would you recommend this as a moisturizer for a shaved head? The product I normally use on my face is kind of expensive and doesn't spread easily enough to make it convenient for my full head.
Patrick C on Mar 24, 2014
Best Answer: Absolutely--I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity and the wide open space to apply this moisturizer to my head and face. It spreads easily and is non greasy and not at all shiny like some other products. Highly recommended!

Can I use this as an aftershave?
A shopper on May 26, 2014
Best Answer: I do use it after I shave as a moisturizer. Non-greasy, easily absorbed; however, I wouldn't consider it an "aftershave". I generally use their toner to help close my pores before applying the moisturizer. Hope this helps.

How much do I need to apply it on to my face?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2012
Best Answer: Not that much. Just a small amount will do...
The amount I use is usually no bigger than a tacks head...and that covers my face and ears.
And I may do it again if I feel I didn't get my neck well enough.

shaun l on Jun 25, 2012

I've been using the Facial Fuel Moisturizer for a few months now after using the facial fuel cleanser.. Skin feels great for a few hours then gets real oily and shiny on forehead.. Any suggestions? Can I add something to help with the shine and oil..
A shopper on Apr 10, 2014
Best Answer: I don't use the cleanser and only apply the moisturizer immediately after shaving which I do in the shower. I only use a small amount, say a dollop the size of a dime. I've not experienced oily or shiny forehead or face in general. Given we use product differently, I'd suggest a lesser amount.

I've been using moisturizer for well over a year, maybe two.

can women use this product or this product has other version for women?
Yuhan P on Nov 15, 2013
Best Answer: I don't see why not. There is nothing special that makes this a men's product. It is a really good skin care product, so I would suggest that you give it a try.
Kiehl's has a product guarantee, so if you try it and don't like it. you can feel comfortable returning it. I doubt that you will, I have been using this product for years and it is really excellent.

Is this suitable for oily skin? Can it avoid shiny face?

Does facial fuel smell as same as facial fuel PDF 15?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2012
Best Answer: No, it doesn't have the suntan lotion smell so it's not overpowering. It actually has a light mint smell and feels quite refreshing after applying a small amount to the face and neck.

Concerned that there is alcohol denat in this product...and it's the third listed, so it's quite concentrated. Can someone explain why and should this be a legitimate concern?
