Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrates without clogging! I received this product as a sample in store last month and was told it wasn't even available for purchase yet. I tried it and have been checking the website each week since waiting for it to show up. First, this is a much heavier and longer lasting moisturizer than you would commonly use daily - it truly is a balm and designed for those of us that struggle with dryness and I don't plan on using it every day, but every few days to once a week depending on my skin. All that said, I have incredibly sensitive skin that breaks out anytime I change my skin routine and this is the ONLY hydration product I have found that doesn't cause that. I can wear it all day and I get wonderfully hydrated soft skin without any irritation at all. I can't wait to get my full size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible, long lasting moisturizing This stuff is really incredible. I bought it after running out of a sample I had brought with me on vacation to LA. The dry desert air was not getting along with my NYC skin, and I am so glad I did. I tend to use this product sparingly, just on the driest spots on my face & neck. I also use it on my lips every morning, and haven't had any dry skin there since I bought it. It's somehow light enough to use on your face, but still leave long-lasting moisturizing. I will occasionally use it on my hands as well, if they get extra dry. If you have any dry skin concerns, I highly recommend getting this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW BEST CREAM BALM EVER Wow this is the most amazing moisturizer I have tried and I'm a skin care junky lol this knocks the boots off any moistening product I have used. The texture is a dream and makes my skin feel hydrated and seals the moisture unlike some products, I just got this in the post yesterday but put it to the test using a deep cleaning clay mask which dose pull and leaves the pores and skin emencly clean, but tends to dry skin bit however this cream immediately calmed the redness and just made my pores and skin feel amazing, I also bought the 24 hour cream but don't even bother with that this balm is the true Winner and will forever be repurchasing this product JUST WOW!!! My first purchase from Kiehls and I'm hooked, thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! I've been using the Ultra Facial Cream for years and love it dearly, but my skin is getting drier as I age... so purchasing the Balm seemed a logical step and I'm so glad I did! A very little goes a long way and it goes on well. Sinks right in and my face is not shiny at all. It's a conundrum: fully hydrated yet a matte finish! Love that. It smells a bit like leather cleaner but the scent is faint, so there's really no negative to that. Really a win-win!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have dry skin, this moisturizer will change your life! Thank you Kiehls! I have struggled with the driest skin since my teenage years (now in my early 30's). I have tried so many products..drugstore to high end..nothing worked! Moisturizers would feel nice on my skin, but the second I put on my foundation (tried so many for dry skin as well)...cake face and dry patches. Within the first day of using this moisturizer, I saw amazing results! All the foundations that would cake up and have dry patches have now left me with flawless glowing skin! This is a must have!! I will never use another moisturizer again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not For Everyone Love Hate relationship. I want to first say this moisturizer is not for everyone. Even those who think they have dry skin should consider stopping into their neighborhood Kiehl's to have their skin analyzed. I say this because this moisturizer is truly for those who have the most fickle, dry skin. About the texture: It's a balm so of course its going to feel a little heavier and thicker. The solution? Don't use very much. It WILL go a long way. The effect: Phenomenal. I personally use this as a night cream as I can't stand the heavy feeling during the day. Leaves my skin during those horrible winter seasons feeling ... normal again. Tip: Wait for your serum and oil sink in a minute or so before putting this cream on. Also, if you decide to use the cilantro masque under this moisturizer - you may notice it leaves the skin looking soapy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I had been living in denial, thinking my 35-year-old skin was still the "oily/combination" skin I had when I first learned how to buy skincare products. But after being told by multiple aestheticians and a dermatologist that my skin was so dry it was damaged, I asked the nice Kiehl's lady for a change in product. At first when she had me test this I was all "uhhhh this is Vasoline." But then I let it sink into my skin and was immediately addicted. Yes, it's thick. Yes, it takes some getting used to. But I now use it as a day and night cream. My makeup goes on so smoothly over this. My rosacea is much improved. I'm basically getting the same results from this that I get from the rosa artica, for half the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep Healing Effects I wouldn't normally try this or purchase it, but I gave it a shot after receiving a sample. It's not something that I would personally use everyday, as it's a bit heavier and thicker than most face creams or moisturizers. It's more heavy duty in my opinion, but it works great. I used it after a long pool day, my face was feeling the effects of layering on sunscreen all day and overall felt dry and zapped. This balm is super moisturizing and re-hydrates really well. With normal to oily skin, I was afraid to use this but alas no breakouts. It does go on a little heavy, but once you work it in, it smooths out and absorbs pretty well. Give it a minute and your skin will suck in the nutrients and that greasy feeling diminishes. It's also great to layer a lighter moisturizer over it, like the Facial Fuel or Oil Free Moisturizer/Gel.
