Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had before and after photos! The review is based on the sample sent with my last Kiehl's purchase. That's how quickly the product works, even on 55 year old skin that's been out in the sun far too long... My freckles looked they'd morphed into circus animal shapes on my face; disgusting! But just ONE application of this cream changed all that. Three days [and applications] later and I'm honestly stunned. Of course I'm here to buy a full size jar. It's pricey, but it works. And a little goes a long way! It soaks right in, not greasy at all and my skin is soft and younger looking - a big plus. Only used it at night so far so haven't tried putting sunscreen over it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I have used several of Kiehl's moisturizers mainly because my skin has a mind of its own. I now know that my skin is just temperamental and like the season, it goes with the flow. I purchased this cream to replace the Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream I'd been using during the summer months since my face seemed drier. The moment I put this on, I knew this was a keeper! A small swipe goes a long way. I have acne scars (red and deep pockets) that aren't quite as red as before. I've only used this for 1.5 months so obviously that's not enough time for a miracle but I like how my skin has been since using this product. It has not felt dry at all, it truly is deep moisturizing. This is labeled fragrance-free but I smell a hint of lavender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I went through a jar of this product and really liked it. Light and effective. I use it all over my face and neck. When I ran out, in about a week my freckles and age spots seemed more noticeable. I was doubting that it could really make that much of a difference, but ordered more of this cream and after using it literally a day or two my spots faded to almost nothing. I have sun damage and am almost 48 years old - this cream take at least 10 years off. I will never run out again! PS - It seems more effective than the spot correction formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24 hour moisture I use this cream along with the clearly corrective purifying foaming cleanser which I also love. This cream feels so light and good on my skin, and I apply it very thinly on my face/neck area. It feels extremely fresh and since I started using it, I have no problems at all with dry skin or flakes. This also really helps to brighten my skin, and I don't get much redness anymore either. I prefer this over the Ultra Facial Cream because I felt that particular product made me too oily throughout the day. Overall , I love this entire line from Kiehl's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Other Best "Blind" Purchase I'm in love with this moisturizer! I was on the hunt for a great moisturizer and purchased this based on the salesperson's recommendation. This stuff is amazing! I didn't realize how well it was working until I went a couple days without using it. I started noticing little dark spots on my nose and cheeks! Needless to say, I have not skipped a day since! The texture is silky and it feels light. When applied I look and feel hydrated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I'm always skeptical about creams, but Kiehl's never disappoints. I have horrible ance-prone and uneven skin, but this non-greasy cream doesn't break me out and my skin tone has evened out significantly. Each passing week, I've been wearing less foundation/concealer and it's a great moisturizer to wear under your makeup. It is a bit pricey but the results are worth it for me and a little goes a long way as each bottle would last me 2-3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, even for sensitive skin! This is one of two purchases I have made so far with Kiehl's. I visited my brother and sister in law and used their products when I ran out of mine. I loved their eye cream and moisturizers so much, I knew I had to have my own. There were so many to choose from, but this one truly has it all. I break out so easily and am oily, yet dry, with aging skin, yet prone to break-outs, all together! I was worried that this product would irritate my skin, like everything else does, and I would go back to never using moisturizers on my skin again. This was not the case. I use it twice a day and am in love with this product. I even use it on my neck! It's fabulous! I have only used it for two weeks, so I can't say any spots have diminished yet, but my skin looks healthier. The scent is also clean and refreshing. I love this product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breakout, and oily T-zone in the morning At first, I didn't associate this product with my breakout. I thought the break out on my left cheek is due to the period(though the breakout is much worse than a usual one). However, when my period was gone, I still have new acne coming out at different area of my left cheek and my chin, which is not normal. I then recall that after using this product my T-zone gets very oily in the morning, which never happens before using this product. I only used toner and this cream in the morning and at night for the past 2 weeks. I've used the same brand toner for years, and don't have a problem. So I thought my breakout is probably due to this cream. I then called Kielh's to report it. Fortunately, they are going to give me full refund, which is really a great relief. As a student, $58 + tax is really a lot. After discovering this, I started using a sample of Ultra Facial oil-free gel cream. My T-zone won't feel oily anymore in the morning which again assured me that it is this cream that is causing the problem. However, the Ultra Facial oil-free gel cream is a little too dry for me...but I have nothing to use before I find my next cream... One more thing, the cream smells awful when I first open. It takes me a while to get used to the smell.
