I love how lightweight and non-greasy this formula is. It helps to keep my shine at bay.

Imperata Cylindrica (Desert Plant Extract)

The Imperata Cylindrica plant thrives in dry, excessively saline environments and is native to many of Earth’s deserts, but is especially prolific in the Australian Outback. Imperata Cylindrica’s roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides an immediate and lasting hydrating effect. In our formulation, Imperata Cylindrica helps skin to store and retain moisture efficiently – even in the driest weather conditions. It is believed that indigenous Australians of centuries past used the desert plant as a substitute for salt, due to its high saline content.

Antarcticine (Glacial Glycoprotein Extract) 

Antarcticine, sourced from Antarctica, is a glycoprotein* that has demonstrated many unique benefits when used in skincare formulas. With superb protection against dryness, Antarcticine helps hydrate skin and provides it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding skin from the damaging effects of free-radicals. It further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating skin’s retention of natural water reserves. The organic substance thrives in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of the cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of the molecule.

*A glycoprotein is a macromolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide).

Rated 5 out of 5 by great for oily skin My skin type I thought is normal, at first I used ultra facial cream. But my face is always shining after using it. So I changed to this oil-free one. No oil on face, fresh, no shine. This one is most fit for me. It is very important to figure out your skin type. 1/28/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great daytime cream for my skin I bought this cream after I realized the Ultra Facial Cream was too oily for my skin during the daytime. I switched to using that one at night and bought this for my day cream. I'm loving it so far! It works prefectly for my combination skin, especially since I use a serum under this, I'm getting plenty of hydration without too much oil from the products. My skin has not gotten less oily, but thats what I wanted. Dry skin creates wrinkles! I use an oil absorbing sheet once a day to keep the shine at bay. But my skin looks so amazing after using Kiehls for the last 3 weeks. It looks radiant, healthy, young, fresh, and clean. I am almost debating using no make-up. Which is crazy! Thats how good my skin feels and looks! If you have oily skin, this is the cream for you! But learn to embrace a little oil with serums. It keeps those wrinkles at bay! 10/17/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Kiehl's Fan! The Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream is so awesome! I'm not having to constantly blot the oil off my T-Zone & my dry areas aren't flaky. I'm amazed! Very lightly dab your finger in the gel-cream & you'll be surprised how far it'll go. If your face feels sticky, you've put on too much. This jar will last quite a while, so it's worth every penny! This was my first order from Kiehl's (along with the Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque) & I'm 100% satisfied thus far. I'm excited to try more products & finally get the skin I've always dreamed of. Two enthusiastic thumbs up here!!! 9/17/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best facial moisturizer for men and women! I tried other moisturizers and they tend to leave a thick uncomfortable layer that feels like a heavy lotion that just clogs your pores. With Kiel's, you can feel the difference. As you apply it for the first time, you'll notice the cool refreshing feel. Then when you wet your face at the end of the day before you cleanse it with facial soap, you'll feel the smooth silky texture over your skin which proves that it's still on your face and has been working throughout the day. I'll never try a different brand moisturizer again! This is definitely the one! 6/24/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Moisturizer for Bedtime I am a Kiehl's fan for a long time now. I have combination skin and some pimples appear once in while. I needed a very simple and yet effective moisturizer to use at night during the fall/winter (when my cheeks get really dry) and this little product nailed it and filled all my needs. It is very light (not to mention, also oil-free), mattes a little bit and smoothes and hydrates my skin during the night. My skin never felt so good! :) 10/2/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by not for me very sticky, hard to absorb, bad smell. I love many Kiehl's product but this one is definitely not for me. 9/18/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for Oily Skin I've used this moisturizer for years. I have extremely oily skin. This moisturizer gives me the right amount of moisture through out the day. I would recommend this only to oily skin because I don't think it is going to be moisturizing enough for people with dry/ normal skin. It is a oil free gel form. Not sticky at all after absorption. Very light texture and easy to be absorbed. Good for sensitive skin at the same time. I can't say this is a great product for any age. I think it definitely works better with skin below 23 from my experience. 5/25/14
Rated 4 out of 5 by for oily skin! I have oily skin and started using this product because of other reviews and decent price. It works for oily skin for hydrating. The only thing I don't like is its texture. It's little sticky to me after I apply it on my face. 5/25/14
