Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring Back the Former Formula, the Former Packaging I have been a Kiehl's loyalist since my early 20s and I love many of their products. My favourite had been the blue tin of age correcting, deeply moisturizing magic. This is a substandard substitute for that at about $5.00 more than what I recall paying for the other cream. Kiehls, please listen to your base and bring back what so many of us loved. Bring back what worked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heavy, oily, shiny!!! Bring back the older version please! The older version came with a blue bottle with a gray cap. It was subtle, light, and matte. It was perfection and I used it in years. But now, what in the world is this? This feels like putting vaseline lotion on your face. Very heavy and shiny and oily on the face. Bring back the old formula! Whoever came up with this formula should get fired!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad, real bad This product doesn't match the normal excellence of a Khiel's product. It also is the only product I've ever used that pills on the face. Made quite an embarrassing impression, on a date. DO NOT PURCHASE

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the old anti wrinkle cream thick and greasy. Not a fan. Please get rid of this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product; Wish it came in a larger size Truth: This product is expensive. This product works. I love it. Feedback: The packing seems a little much. Putting it in a tube would lower the price substantially and offering a larger size would grow your sales of the product exponentially, I believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent moisturiser and wrinkle corrector. I have been using it with Vitamin C serum and results are awesome. The face is smooth and I use it each day. You feel a gentle tingling once you put the serum which is instantly absorbed. I am a bit surprised for the negative feedback here, as Age Defender is simply the best anti age cream when coupled with the Vitamin C. One thing I know. I will keep using it!! And I love the Logo too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not sure why there are all these negative comments. I have normal-to-oily skin, and since I started using this I consistently get compliments about my skin. As I've gotten older, this stuff really has helped.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Young Folks Don't Need Laughable that an age 18-24 is reviewing this product, why would a person age 18-24 need an age reducing cream? Ridiculous or fake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - use with others in range I saw quite a lot of negative reviews of this, but I really love it, and have noticed a big difference to my skin after using it for a week or so. I cleanse, tone, and then apply the Kiehl’a vitamin C serum, and then apply this moisturiser with the matching eye cream morning and night. It is very thick and unlike most other moisturisers but you only need a small amount. They also have a daily use moisturiser in a blue tube that’s lighter that could be used during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Y’all are using this wrong probably! So I can definitely understand where the “greasy” reviews are coming from.... this product is really thick and texturized. I generally have very oily skin and I found that a lot of kiehls products don’t work for me and I was skeptical of this at first.. BUT! I realized that the best way to use this is at night before bed. In the morning just wash it off and apply facial fuel moisturizer after a shower and you will see amazing effects! Definitely tightens up face!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Feels Great, Works... eh I love the feel of this thick lotion and the smell, however I do not really notice any dramatic aging changes. If it is supposed to help defend against wrinkles in the long-run, that would make sense because I'm definitley not getting any more lines, but I just don't see anything fantastic about it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from High priced lotion/cream no reults I tried this cream for several months and didn't see any results or benefits. This cream felt like any regular face lotion but higher priced. I used to buy the Facial Fuel Wrinkle cream previously made but somehow they discontinued making it. That cream DID work and was outstanding. This, on the other hand, fails in comparison. I will not shop at Kiehl's anymore unless they bring back the old formula. I'm tired of trying their new products without results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the best overnite moisturizer. I had high hopes for it to Improve skin texture. I’ve noticed no changes my skin’s appearance

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please bring back the old formulation This product is just OK. I would really like for Kiehl's to bring back the old formulation: Facial Fuel Anti-wrinkle Cream. That product is what got me into Kiehl's products, it was amazing and I'm very sad it has been discontinued , please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow this cream is amazing I logged in to buy a refill of this cream and I can't believe all the negative reviews! 1st - those reviews are winning that this product is different than another - not actually reviewing this one. 2nd - this is the best moisturizer/anti-wrinkle cream I've ever used. I've tried almost all the Kiehl's facial creams and this is the best: *need only a tiny amount, lasts almost a year *thick, luxurious feel that goes on smooth and not oily. *works great with just other serums and sunblock

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm into it When I first tried this product I felt like it was too thick and a little too "moist." Then I switched to just using it before bed. It's fantastic. My skin has never looked so good. I use it with the Age Defender Dual Action Cleanser. Then during the day I just use the regular SPF Facial Fuel Moisturizer. Haven't had a single breakout and my skin looks great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why why why? Why would you discontinue such a popular and longstanding product? Don't understand why on earth the old facial fuel anti wrinkle cream was replaced with this crap. I'm sorry to say I won't be purchasing anymore Kiehl's products unless it's brought back. Can you imagine Apple discontinuing the iPhone? Unbelievable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE REPLACEMENT Agree with all of the other reviews, this is greasy/ineffective and a FAR CRY the amazing prior product-The Anti Aging/Wrinkle moisturizer. The closest replacement I can find is Brickel Revitalizing Anti Aging Cream
Date published: 2019-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So it’s not your old wrinkle cream, but it’s not bad. I don’t really understand all the negative comments. I like this cream. I wear it at night after washing my face along with the age defender eye cream. I will agree with others and say that I wake up and my face is SHINY. However I’m happy with the result. I’m not sure why Kiehl’s says this is for either day or night—I would imagine I’d be super greasy looking come mid-morning. Hence my use as a night cream. Anyway—good product, but I’d recommend as a night cream. Use the facial fuel moisturizer for day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep Eliminating good products Why did you get rid of the other anti-wrinklier cream? Loyal customer for a long time but why do you guys keep messing with good products?? The facial fuel moisturizer is terrible now and this new anti aging one isn’t as good as the old anti wrinkle cream. I don’t get it...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not for oily and combination skins This cream is not that bad. I think it`s good for dry skin. If your skin is oily and comination, you can use it for the nighttime. I prefer to use the creams with matte finish for the daytime. Actually i missed Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Facial Fuel Transformer Age Correcting Moisture Gel. Kiehl`s should listen to their customers and bring back these creams. Matte finish is very important for the men because they do not wear make-up. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing moisturizer! I've been using Kiehl's Age Defender moisturizer for a little over 4 years now. It's an AMAZING product. I recently got my partner to start using it with me. The consistency of this moisturizer is best for night time use since it's smooth and thick, but not greasy. It does what it's suppose to do and that is to hydrate your skin. Overtime, I've noticed better texture too. As with all products, it takes time! People are too quick to review after using it for a month or so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great disappointment This is a great disappointment after Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. It dries extremely fast on my skin, but doesn't absorb, so it just sits on top of the skin forming a kind of a film. Not that you feel it, but you can definitely see its edges if you look closer. And no, I don't use a lot. In fact, if I used less, it just won't be enough to moisturize all the face. It does improve skin tone, but that's probably the only thing it does well. If I scratch my skin with a nail, I get white bits of cream under it. Oh, and as it dries quickly, you're most likely get tiny lumps all over your face after applying it. I had been using Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream for several years and it worked as if it was created specifically for my skin. When I heard that it's been discontinued, I bought all the jars I could find in my city. And I was delaying the moment that I have to change my moisturizer for as long as I could. I've given Age Defender Moisturizer a chance hoping that it's not as bad as most of the reviews here state. After all, Age Defender Eye Repair works great for me. Unfortunately, the moisturizer didn't work as well. In fact, it worked very bad. So here I am, facing the necessity to find a new everyday cream, and Kiehls doesn't have it. I just don't know where to look for it yet. If somebody finds something as good as Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle, please comment on this review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product Has the consistency of jello and greasy. Does not apply evenly like Facial Fuel Anti wrinkle cream. It smells like like the ingredients have gone bad. I am past the return period and not near a Kiehl's retail store. I just used the last of my FF Anti wrinkle cream. I am not a happy customer.
Date published: 2019-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer The product works for me very well. I too use less of this moisturizer than its predecessor. This is not to discount others' experience and preference. I also use the Ultra Facial Overnigjt Hydrating Masque once a week. My friends and family note the difference!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor replacement Have been a Kiehl’s customer for years, and agree with the other reviewers, this is a poor replacement for Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream. I’ve gone through two jars and will now be looking for a replacement. Come on Kiehl’s listen to your customers, bring back the original

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Question It is very disappointing that 'Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream' is discontinued, I have been using it from last 5 years and was very satisfied. Looking at other reivew seems many are feeling same. I think Kiehl's should at least share why such a good product is discontinued and is it coming back ?
Date published: 2018-12-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened? Just not a fair "replacement" for Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Not even close. Kiehl's, what happened? Why? Surely it's not a "profit" thing... I've been buying kiehl's since 1996 BTW.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Please bring back the old product! Dear Kiehls, The previous moisturizer that this replaced was much better. Please bring it back or make one EXACTLY like it! Thanks.

It's one of the best moisturizers I've ever used. Very mild on the face, and you can see actual results.
