Rated 4 out of 5 by from not quite satisfied I got it as a sample. I have a combination and mature skin. I really like the ultra facial cream and thought this product is similar. It's not, because it did no provide as much moisturizing as the ultra facial cream. I would go for the cream instead of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Hate Skin that Feels Greasy When I tried this product for the first time, I was dumbfounded. I did not think anyone made a face product that did not leave your face feeling greasy to the touch...even those that had no oil base. I love this product. I have been using it for about a year. My wrinkles are still there, but at least my face feels clean and refreshed. I have received several comments on my complexion too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! Love this product. It’s so lightweight and moisturizing for my oily skin. My only wish is that Kiehl’s would make the bigger size available in the states! PLEASE!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for oily skin I've oily skin and any moisturizer that is 'cream-based' is awful. I'm 45 yrs old and have tried a multitude of moisturizers throughout my years---both expensive and inexpensive. The gel moisturizers work best---gel sunblock, too. There are very few gel moisturizers on the market and Kiehl's is probably the finest. IF ever discontinued, I'm sure I will find a replacement, but until then, Thank You Kiehl's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cream For Night I use this after using the calendula face wash and toner. This moisturizer is a lot more light than their ultra facial cream. I like using this at night because it has a cooling sensation that tingles my skin. It also creates a layer that is so smooth on my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Smooth I was skeptical that this product would be as good as a similar product by the same name by MK. I was delightfully surprised that it was as good or better then my previous product. It goes on very smooth and light and light velvet. It dries quickly and is hydrating to my face. It doesn’t take much product to cover your face and neck. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it My boyfriend bought me this just yesterday and I already love it. It’s absorbed by my skin and not shiny at all. Love it! Definitely will buy more when I run out

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes my face shinny I purchase this product because it’s oil free but my face still looks shinny and oily after using it.. I’m better off just using a delicate face washer that doesn’t dry my skin and avoid moisturizing in general. I have acne prone skin and I’m consistently oily, so I wanted something that didn’t make me more shinny. I wouldn’t recommend this product if you consistently break out from oily skin... I broke out a week after and I was using kiehls washer, toner, and moisturizer..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light moisturizer! This moisturizer is as light as they come! It glides on like water! It doesn’t leave you greasy or shiny throughout the day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Summer! I purchased this during winter months and it was not enough hydration. It is however perfect for the summer! It has a wonderful texture and a little goes a long way. I don't feel that this left my face with a matt finish but it is not oily or greasy looking either. It does provide a smoothing effect which was a nice unexpected surprise. It did well under foundation and looks amazing when used alone. It also does well as a touch up over makeup when dabbed on. This is a great summer moisturizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and Effective for Oily Skin This was one of the first products that I bought from Kiehl's (along with Calendula Facewash and Toner). At the time, my skin was extremely oily and I was nervous to try something so lightweight. This gel-cream moisturizes my face without making it feel heavy and clogged. Don't let the word "gel" fool you. It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way, so it lasts a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GREASY So I bought this from Brussels after the lady working at Kiehl’s convinced me to(she was really good). I was happy with my purchase at first because it was an oil-free moisturizer and I had a combination skin type with oily T-zone and dry-normal cheeks. Let me tell you, after I wear this for max 45 mins, my forhead gets really really really!!!! oily!! And I can’t return it!!! The price is really high so I will use it, it doesn’t clog my pores or affect my closed comedones in any way, I had no breakouts because of this, but my forhead looks like a frying pan bcs of it:))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I bought it at the airport when I spoke to the customer service rep. She recommended this for my when I explained to her my skin issues, I have very oily skin and I didn’t want anything to heavy. I was able to sample the product and immediately fell in love with the texture. I’ve been using the product for over a month and my skin is just glowing everyday. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone and I will definitely be purchasing the larger size in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I got this product for christmas as I've been struggling with breakouts and acne scarring for the past two years. I've tried anything from high retinol creams, vitamins and changing my diet. I can swear by this for anyone who struggles from enlarged pores, and dry skin. I couldn't win. I would try to solve one problem and cause another. This product feels so clean and light on my skin. I haven't had a new breakout since. My skin is hydrated all day without getting greasy. I'm hoping to incorporate this into my regime permanently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect Moisturizer for oily/Combination skin/ expecting larger size! I have at least finished 5 jars of this product and will purchase more. I loved the gel texture of this product which I prefer over the ultra facial cream, since it feels more comfortable on my oily/combination skin. Though this product does a not good job in moisturizing your skin in dry seasons, like winter....After applying it for 2 hours, my skin starts to dry out again. I am just wondering why this product does not have a larger value size as the ultra facial cream does. Highly recommend Kiehl's would consider to commercialize the larger size!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but not moisturizing enough for me (personally) Since it's oil-free, I like that it was light when applied to my face. It was amazing at first but after a few months, I noticed that it wasn't moisturizing enough. I figured it was too weak to be used during the winter/ cold months (which we have a lot of in Indiana). Personally, this would've been more worth it if I got more product for the price I'm paying. It's almost winter now and I switched to Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Hyaluronic Acid (in blue tub) and I love it a lot more haha (also its cheaper).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for oily skin I have been using Khiels producs with other brends too. This cream is one of the best face creams I have ever used. My skin is oily combination and I always have some crazy breakouts. before I used another Khiels ultra rich one but it made my oily skin even worse full of acne and super shiny and it makes sense because that cream is better for dry skin. But oil-free cream gel is all my skin needs. I used it twice a day after my shiseido foam cleancing gel and dior 2 in 1 sorbet toner, my skin became like a baby skin I love this cream. Plus price is much better than other good facial creams. I have been using it 2 month now and still half way there :D Since it's gel, little is enough. It is not one of the best creams that does WOW but it is great for keep your skin look nice and moist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great moisturizer! I love the moisturizer and it works well with oily skin. Only complaint is that its only offered in one size, and its not very big so I find I have to reorder it more often than my cleanser and toner! Would be nice to have bigger options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A requirement for people with combination/oily skin Kiehl's did an amazing job with giving an oil-free cream that still moisturizes and effortlessly seeps into your skin for a healthy looking complexion. If you do not have this cream in your skin care regimen yet, you are truly missing out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Moisturization I've been looking for a good moisturizer for a while, now and I finally found one that doesn't react badly to my skin, as most moisturizers make me break out. I like ow it's light and not greasy, and also how it absorbs into the skin quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended for dry to oily skin I'm a Black woman with dry skin during the winter months and oily skin during the summer. I find that this very light, gel moisturizer is perfect. I highly recommend this moisturizer as I use it daily after washing my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Moisturizer! I love the texture and moisturizing qualities of this gel cream moisturizer. I had used the Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel moisturizer for years before giving this one a whirl. I noticed that I only need to use about half as much of the product to get the same results I had with the Neutrogena one. Every morning, I take a small dab of this gel cream moisturizer and add a small amount of the Kiehl's Glow Formula Skin Hydrator to my palm and mix it together and then apply it to my face. The scent of the products is very pleasant and I notice a huge difference in my skin. This will be a staple in my skincare routine forever and ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The jar is too small! I use this oil-free moisturizer in the summer and the regular ultra moisturizer in the winter. There needs to be a larger size available for the oil-free gel cream. Please! I love it, but run out too fast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticky gel does not feel good on skin and leaves it super oily I used to purchase the facial fuel moisturizer, which was discontinued. So I decided to try the ultra facial oil-free gel cream, and was very disappointed. This is perhaps the worst skin care product I've ever tried. The consistency of the product (gel) is unpleasant and does not feel good on the skin, and it also left my skin way too oily and shiny. I do not recommend this product, and will never buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing Love the texture of this gel cream. I’ve tried multiple gel creams and they seem to always break me out but not this one and it doesn’t leave a hard film or anything, it’s almost as if it melts into your skin. Love it! Does well to penetrate my skin too since I have course hairs on my face when I don’t shave. Wish it was just a tad cheaper in price and the texture makes it easy to use up quickly but a little does go a long way. Otherwise it’s part of my face artillery now. The face wash of this line is great too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fresh moisturizer I don't know why my face looks a little bit greasy after 5-10 minutes application. However, my face feels fresh with this product. Plus, it is too small, so it is too fast to use it up.
Date published: 2018-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisturizing without causing breakouts! I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily on my chin and forehead but that doesn't keep it from getting dry - especially in the winter! I've always struggled to find a way to moisturize without causing a terrible breakout and this is one of the only products I've found that does that! It's now my go-to!! And the employee that helped me pick it out made sure I knew that a little goes a long way so it's also not too pricey to maintain clear skin.
Date published: 2018-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! I have had a combination of dry and oily skin around my face. My pores have been very congested and my skin looked so dull. I tried this product as a sample from my Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser and Mask (which are not very good) I tried the sample for a week and my skin looked so fresh and my pores looked smaller and not congested at all! My skin looked so silky and not oily, it doesnt have a strong scent and it was not sticky. I have tried so many moisturizers and this is by far the best. I hope it will remain very effective. It is a bit expensive but it's worth it. I just hope they put it in a container in which you wouldnt have to dip your fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says it does I have combination/ oily skin, and was hesitant about using this product on my skin, especially durring the summer. (I also never use moisturizes in the summer because my skin is that oily) I first was given a sample of this product so decided to try. After one week of using this with the Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner, I have noticed a remarkable difference in my skin ! My skin is not as shinny, my pores appear smaller and my skin is glowing! A little bit goes a long way, just be sure to rub it in all the way. I also love the fact that it is not tinted, so it does not appear to dry my skin out at all. I hope you love this product as much as i do ! I'm currently trying to find a night cream/moisturizer to clear up some dark spots
