Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best moisturizer It’s the best moisturizer for me especially when I have some irritating or burn. It’s so helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Amazing cream, can’t use any other BUT terrible bottle pump I have very sensitive skin and this is the only cream that does not irritate my face and does a fantastic job moisturizing my face. I literally cannot do without it HOWEVER, the bottle and pump is terrible. Once the content gets low, the cream no longer comes out of the bottle. I have to take the top off. And that doesn’t work after a while and I have to put water in it to loosen it up. And there’s plenty left. PLEASE, improve the bottle/pump. Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke with second use of pump. I love the way Kiehl's products work on my skin. I was excited to try this product. I used it once and when I went back for the second use the pump broke. It's been sitting in my cabinet since. Very disappointed in the quality of the pump.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, but where is the SPF?? I love this Day hydrating moisturizer for sensitive skin, but useless without sunscreen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secretly one of the best moisturizers available. To be perfectly honest, I’m not a big Kiehl’s customer. My skin is crazy sensitive and I have to be really careful with what I put on it. That being said, years ago - several? More than ten? - when SR debuted, I tried it. Dozens of skin products have come and gone since then, but I always find myself replacing my bottle of SR. It’s not too heavy or light, it’s soothing but not greasy or medicinal, and my highly reactive skin wakes up looking calm and refreshed the morning after it’s applied. The price isn’t hard to swallow compared to other brands, and the bottle seems to last forever. (Night-only use, need SPF for daytime.) PS: Extra points for pump packaging!!!!!!!! Jars are the worst.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to moisturizer ! I am so happy I have found a moisturizer that I trust and will guarantee great performance every time. I have been using for a couple months now and have just placed my second order because I can't live without this magic serum. My skin feels fresh and the texture is perfect. No irritation and no issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I needed a moisturizer to help with the redness I get. I was told this would do the a job but it doesn't for me. Works ok as a moisturizer but doesn't help the redness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Necks and Chests too! I tend to be a little lazy and put moisturizer all over regardless what area it's designed for. I started using this a few months ago and really noticed a tightening of the skin on my neck and chest so it's now part of my regular routine. I follow up with the Glow to give me a little color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this moisturizer, feels great on my skin. They definitely need to improve the bottle. It is hard to pump out. I am going to need to open it up and try to get more out of it, the pump doesn't work after awhile. Make it a jar! That would be much better

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the product however the pump stopped working just a few weeks after I started using it. I have almost a full container left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing and moisturizing - just expensive I love this product. A little goes a long way and I can feel a cooling effect the moment I put it on. It also is great on my combination skin - does not cause breakouts, but ensures consistent moisture. Only down side is the high price for such a small bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rightfully named! Skin rescuer literally rescued my skin. My face has recently been uncharacteristically rough, congested, red, and broken out; overall unhappy and irritated. The bumps on my forehead went down and my complexion was even and less red after just one use. I will definitely buy this product again, after less than a week of nightly use, my skin has seen a 360 turnaround in overall quality and radiance. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I would have purchased sooner! The first time I used it, I wore it to bed overnight and woke up with glowing skin and noticeable reduction in those small bumpy pimples. I apply twice a day, morning and night, and my skin keeps getting better. I wouldnt use under makeup, only because I like a little more of a gel based moisturizer and primer, but I barely wear make up so it doesn’t make a huge difference. I feel more and more confident of my make-up free face since using this. I was actually recommended this product in Kiehl’s store in February and I didn’t even up buying it. Regretting that now! So glad I added this to my daily regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GRAIL PRODUCT HANDS DOWN. BEST MOISTURIZER. I have semi-sensitive skin so like to play skincare on the safe side. This is a WONDER. Calms skin yet definitely heals + replenishes it, keeps it moisturized + plump all day. Perfect for sensitive skin and combo skin. Doesn't clog pores or feel greasy. There's also squalene in there which is a little wonder in and of itseIf. Love the packaging + the name... it speaks for itself. Thanks Kiehl's. Stop making things I can't live without!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live up north and while putting salt on the ice a gust of wind blew it in my face. My skin was burned and looked terrible. I was leaving the next day on a trip and in the airport I was so miserable that I stopped into a shop and the salesgirl recommended Skin Rescue. Not only did it clear my skin in a week but since I've been using it the fine lines are disappearing. I Love This Product. Alas like everyone else hate the packaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! Not so great container. I love this moisturizer. It's been apart of my daily routine for over a year now. It would be nice if Kiehl's offered a larger size to purchase. Also, the pump they put on these containers quits working about 70% of the way through.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product; packaging issues Really enjoyed this moisturizer. IMO, the consistency is perfect, especially first thing in the morning when I don't want to pull against my skin. However, I only got half way through the bottle before the pump stopped working. It's unpleasant to have to shake clumps out and, while I plan on turning it over into another container and seeing if that works, I'm worried that I won't be able to use most of what I paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First skin product to give me results overnight! I've been one of the few lucky people with naturally great skin - until recently! Maybe it's that I've moved to the city and am coming across more skin stressors, but in the past few months, I've had to deal with adult acne / pimples breaking out on my forehead and temples. I tried everything from acne-fighting face wash, toners, all sorts of moisturizers / creams and treatments, but nothing worked. I picked this up yesterday evening and put it on before bed, and woke up to the acne looking visibly diminished! AMAZING! I don't usually write reviews, but I had to write on for this because it's the first time a product has given me results over night. I'm going to simplify my routine to a gentle cleanser + this and see what happens. THANK YOU KIEHL'S!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer for sensitive, irritated or reactive skin I was experiencing hormonal changes in my already sensitive skin when my previous moisturizer was discontinued. I tried a couple of things for sensitive skin, including a product recommended for skin recovering from laser treatments and chemical peels but nothing worked. My skin was red, irritated, dry and peeling at the corners of my eyes and lips. I love Kiehl's products for my hair so I decided to try this on my completely stressed out skin and within a couple of days it was back to normal! I could not be happier with this product and recommended it to anyone with sensitive skin or who might be having a reaction to harsh medications or environmental conditions. It's light and non-greasy and probably enough moisture for normal to oily skin. I have dry skin so I apply Ultra Facial Cream and Creamy Eye treatment over it. Now that my skin has settled down I don't use it every day, but I definitely think it's something worth having in your medicine cabinet whenever your skin is in need of extra care. I really appreciate that it comes in a pump bottle rather than a jar so that the product isn't exposed to air or bacteria from various family members dipping into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So effective! Whenever I had breakouts, I would use this and my skin would get better in a few days. I never had any breakouts after using a whole bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love I really do enjoy this product. I can't tell you how many moisturizers I've been through that claims stuff that it doesn't do. But then I found this bad boy. Oh my goodness. Within a few days my skin was super soft.. Doesn't leave your skin feeling gross. The light, silky feel leaves your skin feeling nice. I've always had a bit of a red tint to my cheeks and that went away with this product. HOLY GRAIL for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST face lotion I never leave reviews for anything but this lotion is too good to not review. I fly A LOT (2-3x a week) and my skin is really taking a beating between that and the cold winter. I walked into an airport Kiehls looking for anything to help (with red, dry face). The lady recommend this and I bought it. OH. MY. GOD. This lotion is incredible. Not only did my skin visibly improve within 2 days of use (I got compliments!), it also looks better than it did before all of my flying. The lotion is somehow both light and very hydrating. It is not greasy and just basically perfect. I have sworn by channel in the past but now this is the only lotion I will ever use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redness Rescuer Indeed I'm really impressed with the improvement of my skin from this product. I noticed the skin tone has been evened out significantly with minimal redness without feeling too dry or too oily. This moisturizer is absolutely my go-to when I need to get rid of redness, quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sold on a sample On a grueling business trip, found myself on a long layover and stumbled into the Kiehls store at Philly airport. I looked haggard (was haggard), tired (was tired), and old (yeah, was really old too). The nice lady asks what she could do for me and I gestured to the entire store and said, "I think I need This". She laughed at me and said, no, you need this. Hands me a sample of skin rescuer. Man, was she right. This stuff is just marvelous. Used the sample sparingly and my skin has not looked so smooth and hydrated in literally a decade. I am hooked. Ordered the full size and I cannot imagine living without this stuff. My only complaint is the pump seems to be defective, might need to contact kiehls to see if there is something that can be done about that, but I don't want to send it back because this stuff is like magic. Removes redness, hydrates, feels like butter in a not greasy way. Terrific product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for winter hands Unlike most, I never use this as a facial cream. It is too heavy for my sensitive facial skin. BUT, this is a must for my hands in the cold winter months. I have tried everything and nothing keeps them from cracking and feeling awful except for this. It has been worth every penny for this need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Use It Nightly At first, I wasn't too impressed with Skin Rescuer, but I stuck with it and after a few nights, I started to see great results. I use only a small dab (half a pump) and mix it with a small dab of moisturizer, mixing it between my fingers to warm it up, them apply to my face before I go to bed. In the morning, my skin is calm, clear and fresh looking. Since I only a small dab, this 2.5 ounce bottle lasts a very long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I've been using this for a while now but I'm not too sure if it works for sensitive oily skin. Every time I use this product I find more acne breakouts on my face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skin Saver I've been using the Skin Rescuer for a month now, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I have combination skin, tending to get both oily and flaky at once. I also have terrible redness, mild acne, and very sensitive skin. The texture of this cream is nice - it doesn't feel greasy and it absorbs into the skin, though I will admit it does feel a little heavy once it is absorbed. I have definitely noticed a positive dramatic change in my skin - however I find myself still getting oily after a few hours of wear. Thankfully it's not a gross shiny oily, but the kind of oily where I'll wipe my nose with the back of my hand and it glistens a bit. I use this in the morning after the ultra facial cleanser, and again in the evening after makeup removal - I didn't like how heavy my face felt with both the rescue and midnight recovery. A little goes a long way with this stuff (and most kiehls products) so you'll definitely get your bang for your buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appropriately Named! I have been using this for about a week or two, now, and I am already seeing results. My friend asked me what I was using cause she said it looked like I had plastic surgery. She is planning on buying some for herself! It improves the overall tone of my skin so that it's not as blotchy, and even the texture of my skin has improved. I feel like it's much more luminous and I really don't even have to use a lot - less than a dime-sized drop. I initially got this to use at night, but I really like to use it in the morning as it makes my skin glow (and I'd hate for no one to see that!). I'm not sure if it's the combination of the regimen I'm using that makes it work so well, but I'm definitely not stopping my Kiehl's routine!: 1. Clearly Corrective Foaming Cleanser, 2. Cucumber Toner, 3. Skin Rescuer, 4. Oil-Free Facial Lotion
