Did You Know?

Squalane is a highly-refined botanical lipid with a molecular structure that is very similar to skin lipids. With a natural affinity to skin, this lightweight lipid absorbs easily without leaving a greasy residue. An effective emollient, Squalane has been traditionally used to help protect skin’s barrier and seal in moisture for softer, smoother skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring Back Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm Please bring back Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm. Ultra Facial Cream is ok in the Midwest for seven months of the year but for the other five months UFDMB was the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an essential !! i remember when i first used this product, my face actually burned a little because my face was so dry. now that i have been using this product for over a year and a half, my face is a lot more moisturized, and each time i apply the cream feels just as refreshing as the previous time. i would definitely recommend this product because it will change your life!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cream is great ! The cream is great, fast absorb but i’m not sure i got some acne after using this. I have to check this again. Hope it’s not. However, my dry skin changes to normal skin after using this. Which i love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Moisturizer Hands down, a great moisturizer. I have sensitive & in between dry and oily skin. This moisturizer sits incredibly well on my skin, even under makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best overall facial cream I received a small sample of this cream from a past Sephora order and instantly fell in love. This cream is the perfect balance of feeling thick enough to moisturize, and light enough to not feel like I’m clogging my pores. I have combination skin and have no reactions when applying this on its own or on top of other products. I love that I can use this am or pm, and that it just makes my skin feel balanced. Ordered the largest size because it’s now a part of my daily routine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but wouldnt buy again Smooth and hydrating on the skin but I've had other products that have keep that hydrating feeling till the morning this doesn't have that affect it's was also good for my acne prone skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No nonsense, effective formula This is a really great formula and from what I understand was a pivotal moment for the company in its’ formative years. I was so used to moisturizers that leave a shiny/oily appearance that when I got this I thought it wasn’t for me. I’ve used it day and night to a sopping wet face out of the shower for a few weeks and can tell you that this is a really great product. No fragrance is a game changer for my skin. I’m really thankful for this face cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My “Go To” I swear by this product and recommend it to anyone who needs a great cream! I have combination/acne-prone skin with large pores. To say I was hesitant about putting a cream on my face, is an understatement! I had been searching for a good moisturizer for almost 10 years now, and as I begin to approach 40, finding a healthy way to moisturize my skin, without breakouts, became even more important to me. I’ve been using Ultra Facial Cream for nearly a year and it has changed my world! I love the lightweight, yet creamy feel, and it has never clogged my pores or broken me out! How did they do that? If you ask me, “Do you like this product?” I will gladly reply, “Absolutely!”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I haven't even used this for an entire week yet but I can already tell that I love it. It's a nice texture and it makes my skin feel so soft. It doesn't have much a fragrance and I'm glad. I'm almost positive that I'd purchase more of this stuff for sure! Can't wait to try more from Kiehl's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING MOISTURIZER Before using this product, I had really dry, flaky skin and somewhat acne prone skin as well. This is such a great cream, it feels so good and you can feel the cream throughout the day. Might be heavy for oily skin people because of the natural oils but the exfoliating ingredient salicylic acid works good to keep the skin soft and supple! By far my favourite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You really can't beat this for an all around mositurizer. I am a HUGE fan of the Multi-Corrective moisturizer in the purple jar but went with this as I needed a cheaper option for the moment. It does everything you want from a moisturizer and doesn't do the things you don't. My skin looks and feels healthy and fully moisturized, but not greasy. The product feels like it is being absorbed and not sitting on top of my face, I don't think it has anti-ageing ingredients but for a straight-up moisturizer this is bang on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I have been using this product for a year now. I'm 62 and have never had better skin. Goes on smooth and never greasy. Thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing! I have been using this facial cream daily since January 2020 and can confidently say this product is incredible; my skin stays consistently moisturized and clear throughout the day without feeling greasy or heavy. The appearance of my skin has dramatically improved due to this product. I no longer need to hide behind makeup in the winter months as this product gives my skin a healthy glow instead. I truly recommend this product to anyone! I can't imagine using any other brand for now on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, hydrated skin! I have recently received my Ultra Facial Cream and so far loving the results! Decent price point for a higher end brand. The cream is soft and feels luxe, has little to no scent, a small amount goes a long way. Im excited to see long term results from using Kiehl's skincare!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm Is the best For the best protection and best overnight moisturizer, Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm Is the best product. Kiel’s should not have discontinued it. They should consider bringing it back. A little goes a long way. I use it more generously at night and wake up to smooth, well- hydrated skin. I am also able to use it in the day as a protective layer against a harsh, dry climate. It is by far Kiehls most protective moisturizer. Better than Ultra Facial cream which doesn’t do anything for me. Smell- ok. Not offensive As a Moisturizer - ok. I was underwhelmed since it didn’t replenish nor protect my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this! My skin really really dry, I had tried many products but they didn’t work well on me. But I finally found this moisturizer, it works so well, I can feel my skin moist throughout the day!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best facial cream in the game After trying as many lotions and potions as I could, this product stood out by far. It is lightweight and does not make you feel shiny or oily and it has a very soft silky texture. I put it on morning and night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this! I have very sensitive dry skin, I tend to get dry patches instead of breaking out. I had been using another moisturizer but after moving to a winter year round climate I needed more support skin care wise so I switched to this moisturizer. It is definitely helpful and with the serum it keeps me moisturized 24/7!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This must be the best cream on the market now I have tried many, many creams, from the most expensive ones to all department stores brands. Nothing comes closer to this one. Texture is great. Results are awesome! Excellent make up base. Feels clean and no issues for my super sensitive skin! I am hooked for ever... I only discovered Kiehls products 2 years ago when I moved to USA from Canada and now I am all about it! I love everything FACE CARE this line carries. Amazing line, hopefully they won’t change anything about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Before I started to add kiehls products into my skin routine, my face would have so many breakouts that seem to never actually go away. I’d get rid of some and soon as it was gone more would come. I decided to get the kiehls toner and this moisturizer and it’s been the BEST thing I’ve done for my skin. I haven’t had a breakout in I don’t remember how long. My face is clear to the point where I haven’t felt the need to wear makeup. Most definitely one of my FAVORITE products, thus far and don’t see that changing anytime soon, unless kiehls decides to make an even better one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shame no more! I used a product beforehand and left my face all dry and flaking. The next thing I know I my face is suffering from this burning sensation, not good at all! I intentionally went to Kiehls and sought help from their experts and they recommended this for daily use. I've seen changes after 3-4 days of religiously doing my facial care using Kiehls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Fantastic Face Cream In the past, before I found this face cream I used to have dry and flaky skin. I normally have combination skin, but in the winter its just dry. What I really love about this face cream is that the texture is light, unscented and it just absorbs into my skin. I have never had any breakouts from using this product and I am on my fourth jar. This is my go to dependable face cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer for accutane I have been on a low dose of accutane for 3 years now, and have struggled to find a great moisturizer since. Then! I found THIS! I will never go back! It also lasts for MONTHS! It leaves my face feeling moisturized but also looking the part, which can be hard to do on accutane. Thank you kiehls for saving my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended By My Friends This is the first time that I use or buy a Kiehl's' products. I am an international student, my friends ask me to help them to buy many products for them. This products is the most popular one. So, I can not stop using it once I tried it. This is a really good products, which made me like the brand Kiehl's. I would strongly recommend you to discover your Kiehl's journal with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Moisturizer Ever! I have dry/combination, acne-prone skin and have struggled to find the perfect moisturizer for years. This is the only moisturizer that doesn’t break me out, but keeps my skin extremely hydrated. I’ve received compliments on my skin and I give all the credit to Kiehl’s!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Couple! I have sensitive and super dry skin. This product works for me and I have been using it for over 15 years and when I got married I persuaded my husband to use it too and now he's hooked. He said it was so gentle on his skin and doesn't cause the zap after he used it after shaving his face. The moisturizer keeps our face moist all day and night. It is so light and not greasy at all. I just took advantage of the holiday sale and stock up for next year my husband even said, "Good job!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fav Cream I love this cream. My T area is usually dry and overall skin is sensitive. I started using this product last year and my skin has become so soft . The overall texture has improved so much and My T-area is so well hydrated that it makes my face even tone and super soft. I love this product and would love to use it year after year . Finally one great find !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only winter cream for the past 6 years! I’ve been pretty consistently using this for the colder months every year for the past 6 years. I have combination/oily skin and the heaviness of this cream feels very comfortable on my skin. I use this as a part of my evening routine and it is the last layer on top of like a million different serums and it’s very compatible with all of them (does not turn my face into a muddy mess) which is amazing.
