Why did you choose this?

BECAUSE IT WORKS
virginia l on Dec 13, 2017
In the winter I need a little more moisturizing than the BB cream alone provides. This adds enough extra moisture without being heavy or greasy.

How does this product compare to Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate?
Thanks for the information
Arlene B on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: It's more for intense hydration and plumping then long-term line-reducing. The plumping serum does tend to soften lines though when you're wearing it.

i have acne prone skin and i use BP, do i use this before or after?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2014
Best Answer: If you are using a BP regimen do the following steps: gently cleanse, apply BP and let it fully absorb, apply Kiehl's serum and let it fully absorb, then moisturize. I'm also using BP for my acne (God send!!! I am so glad I started using it) and this is how I apply it. You always want the BP to be the first product after cleansing.

is there alcohol in this? ANY type/form of alcohol?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2015
Best Answer: I love this serum because of its Vit. C and it's effects on my skin. I don't have the original flyer so I don't have an answer about alcohol but it doesn't act like it. I think Kiehls could answer that for you as they have access to that information. By the way, as I've said in the past, I'm Eileen not Mary, one of my sisters to whom I sent the product as a gift. She is still using it by the way.

Daily Reviving Concentrate
Daily Reviving Concentrate
Best Answer: I've been using the Daily Reviving Concentrate for about a month. It has quickly become one of my favorite "go to " products. It smells heavenly, but most importantly it does the job. You can use it up to three times a day. It is an oil
Based serum that provides a non greasy boost to my dry, tired skin. Use it sparingly under and over your foundation. It prevents drying and I've already noticed that my skin glows more. I have very sensitive skin at 53 and it does not clog my pores. I apply lightly with a sponge and is doesn't ruin my make up that is set. Much better than a powder which can be drying. I am a particularly detailed person and this is only the second time in my life that I've taken the time to provide an honest review of a product that was missing in my skin routine; five stars from me. You shoukd try this product ! Michelle , 53, NYC, light to medium skin tone prone to random break outs and rosacea. Best of luck !!

does this have a scent?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2017
Best Answer: I had noted earlier that there was no scent, I meant no perfumed scent. There is a slight scent, since I don't think anything can be completely odorless. But given that it is listed as a "Dermatologist Solution" and contains plant-based ingredients, it won't contain offending fragrances.

Best Answer: I'm not sure if that is its "purpose" but it does not leave my combination skin oily at all. It absorbs quickly and absorbs fairly dry. I use it under the Super Multi -Corrective cream which may be too heavy for oily skin, you may want to try it under the oil free moisturizer.

But the Hydro-Plumping should be fine for all skin. I love it and it works.
