How to Apply:
-Use daily, applying evenly to clean skin morning and night.
-To ensure an even, thorough application of the cream, dot a small amount of the formula on the cheeks, forehead and
chin before massaging it into the skin in an upward circulation motion.
-For best results, apply when skin is still slightly damp, to help seal in the extra moisture.
-May also be used as needed to help occasional or patchy dryness as a result of seasonal changes.

Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin - similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.


Glycerin is a by-product of soap manufacturing and is a clear, syrupy liquid, usually derived from vegetable oil and obtained by adding alkalies to fats and fixed oils. It is a solvent humectant and emollient in many skin care products, as it absorbs moisture from the air and thereby helps products retain their moisture. It improves the spreadability of products and has definite skin moisturizing benefits.

A shopper asked: Is the ultra facial cream-intense hydration for dry skin equivalent to Abyssine? Feb 5, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mary W: I have not used Abyssine but the ultra facial is good. Even better is the nighttime masque. A wonderful product is the super multi-corrective cream. A customer complained about the scent but there is hardly any which I love. I don't care for perfumed creams. The multi-corrective scent is only slightly medicinal but light enough to be unnoticeable.

Please change the name to Eileen. I sent Mary a gift of Kiehls.
