Rated 1 out of 5 by CFKJ I have dry skin and have finished at least 2 bottles of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream now. When I find out that Kiehls' has an intense hydration version of the cream couple months ago, I was excited and thought it might be a better moisturizer for the summer time since it's in the gel form versus the regular ultra facial cream is in cream form. The sales also ensures me that this would work as good as ultra facial cream. After I tried it, I was pretty disappointed of the result. The moisturizer can not simply keep my face feel moisturized for less than 8 hours. I apply the cream in the morning, then I'll start feeling the dryness on the skin sometime in the afternoon. I immediately switch back to the regular ultra facial cream. I don't understand why they have this jar labeled as "intense hydration" and "for dryer skin type" when the regular cream would do a better job.
Rated 3 out of 5 by AnnapolisChick It was not spectacular
My skin is combination and dry in my t-zone (It is currently 45-65 degrees outside everyday in my location). I also have mild rosacea. This moisturizer did not fully hydrate my skin. After applying it to my face, my skin still felt dry and I would still have flake off one the moisturizer completely dried. I have only had the product for about a month and have already used most of it because I feel like I need to apply a lot of moisturizer because it is just not working for my skin. Unfortunately, this is the strongest moisturizer that Kiehls offers so I am sad to say that I will probably need to look to a different brand to find a moisturizer that suits my needs.

I have very dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin. I purchased this because it was recommended to me, but unfortunately, I wasn't impressed. The first time I used it, it left my skin with a reddish tinge and a slight burning feeling, so from there on, I only used it around my nose, forehead, and chin area. It says it's supposed to provide "intense hydration", but I found that sometimes, I had to apply several layers for my skin to feel - and look - moisturized. I really wanted to like this, but my search for a great moisturizer continues.

This moisturizer works perfectly for my 42 yr old combination, acne-prone, sensitive, sun damaged skin. It has a light texture, does not burn my skin, and does not leave my skin oily. As other reviewers mentioned it leaves a dewy appearance when used w the midnight recovery. I have tried many more expensive products in a quest to see what is best for my fine lines, and this is my favorite so far.
Rated 5 out of 5 by EMBER great moisturizer
the original moisturizer was my first kiehl's purchase but I ended up with this as it is paraben free. I love how lightweight this product is and so far it has been working with my other (non-Kiehl's) skincare products. I just purchase my 2nd jar :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reesa The best at the right price
I really love this moisturizer. It is going to be my one and only from the time I purchased it. It actually really works, and it works even better with the midnight recovery serum too. I just wish they came in the 3.4 oz jar like the other facial ultra cream. I am sure to buy the large one for sure rather than several of the small ones at a time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by clegs82 Good moisturizer for a good price
I bought this product in Japan this past winter during a ski vacation. I thought it would be more "intense" and it wasn't. However, it was enough to get me through my vacation. I would by this product again for normal, everyday use and use an additional serum for the winter/mountain weather.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SoulFoxx I Swear By This Product
I have dry skin so I purchased this product exactly a year and a month ago. I ran out last month and ever since, my dry skin is aching for moisture. My face is literally flaking up because of the NYC winter weather and I can't take it anymore. My face is snowing!
You're getting a steal with the product because one jar alone lasted me a whole year. Mind you, every morning and occasional night routine. You don't need a lot of product because a little goes a long way. If I were you, I'd get the sample that will last you 1-2 weeks and you'll know if it works. If it doesn't, no need to buy. But if it does work...Darling- there's no going back. ;)
