Why did you choose this?
Kiehl's Since 1851 Store
Because I have used it for 10 years and NO other moisturizer comes close! I am 55 and my skin is dry and yet this cream keeps my skin supple and soft. No other face cream has ever come close. It is the best!!!

Best Answer: Haven't tried the first but have the ultra. Not quite as emollient as I need for my dry skin but they are all great. Just my personal preference.

I would love to know which is better the Panthenol Protein or the Creme d'Elegance Repairateur. Has anyone tried both? I'm 40 now and was previously using the multi-corrective which I loved texture wise, I'm just thinking about looking for something a little more moisturizing.

Does this cream contain any prawns or sulfites ?

Question for Kiehls staff: Will the 4 ounce size be returning? I have been using this product for years and it is amazing, but it seems silly to offer only a small size.
Karen S on May 18, 2016
Best Answer: I like the 4 oz size. I am very conscious about spoilage and stale face products. I keep the creme d'elegance repairateur in the refrigerator so it is fresh. Especially nice and fresh in the hot weather. I like a new jar on a more frequent basis so it is doubly fresh, no germs and unsealed. I have been using Kiehl's for 50 years and l always get compliments on the condition of skin. I'm sticking to my Khiel's and my skin care regiment!

I have mild acne, and sensitive skin which is also extremely dry. I know this product is not oil free, but is this okay to use for people with acne/acne prone skin?
Cassie H on Dec 9, 2012
Best Answer: I've used it for a couple of months and it hasn't caused me to break out and it's a very nice, moisturising cream--not too heavy and greasy.

Why has the 4 oz jar disappeared? I've been buying it for years. I have very dry skin and this cream works the best for me.

I am wondering which cream is heavier/or most moisturizing- the ultra facial intense or this cream d'elegance? I had to step up to this one from the regular ultra facial moisturizer to this one because my face is amazingly dry this winter. And although I use this at least 3x a day (and drink tons of water) I'm still dry! Help!
Wendy B on Mar 2, 2015
Best Answer: I found this to be the most moisturizing cream that Kiehl's makes, and I have severely dry, dehydrated skin. I would perhaps take a look at what other products you're using. Perhaps your cleanser is too drying for winter. If so, switching to a creamy, hydrating cleanser can go a long way to help your moisturizer work better.

I cannnot use lotions with perfumes, does this have any in it?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2012
Best Answer: I have very sensitive skin and I cannot use moisturizers that contain perfume either, so I do not believe that this product contains any. I was hesitant to use Keihl's at first because I had been though multiple products and spent hundreds of dollars to find a solution tomy dry and sensitive skin. I asked for a sample in the store, took it home and applied it and realized I finally found the perfect moisturizer cream. I used many of their products (and like I mentioned, I have very sensitive skin). My husband also uses their men's line and loves it! I reccomend this product if you have sensitive skin, it will create soft, smooth skin without the feel of a heavy cream.

Is this oil free?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2012
Best Answer: I don't know if it is oil free, but I do know that I loved it! I will definitely buy it again. It was a good cream to use during the winter when our house is so dry and the weather is harsh.

Is this product Oil Free?
sasa s on Apr 12, 2013
Best Answer: If this person is worried about the slight sheen that accompanies each application, they shouldn't. It is all part 'n' parcel with the rehydration to
the skin. Depending on how far the skin has to rejuvenate itself, depends
on this individual's preference. After that, they can continue this product's
use, or use only when is necessary, as well as using any of Kiehl's lotions.

Does this have a strong scent?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2014
Best Answer: No, there is no fragrance or added scent. If you smell the jar it has a faint lotion smell, but no smell when applied.

Would Creme d'Elegance Repairateur be more moisturizing than the Ultra Facial Cream, and what are the properties/benefits of both?

Best Answer: I switched from Ultra FC to Creme d' R several years ago. I am 67 and my skin has become drier and less supple. You need very little of the Creme as it is rich . I also use a moisturizing mask once a week.

What is the texture? Light and creamy or thick and emollient?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2014
Best Answer: The texture is light and creamy, but the cream has enough moisture for my very dry skin. In the winter I use it during the day as well as night. It is light enough to work well under make-up with no sheen.

At night I use it with Kiehl's Midnight Recovery.

I am 65 and have been using the combination for almost 10 years. My skin looks great.
