Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best discovery I found this at TJ Maxx and started buying it there. I loved it so much I went to the website and now my whole bathroom is full on Kiehl's. This cream is so reliable, leaves my skin so moist, wake up with moist skin, wish it had a little light fragrance tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this !! I’ve been using this for a while and it’s the best ! I hate products with added scent and this doesn’t have it. Moisturizes your skin but it doesn’t get sticky. My night time routine is cleanser - cucumber toner - midnight recovery oil - then this. i just wash my face with lukewarm water in the morning and my sling feels amazing ! I also moisturize my face with this before sunscreen and makeup primer. I love this product and highly recommend !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer yet! I bought this during a BOGO sale and I absolutely love it! I tend to have dry skin and one application of this face cream leaves it moist for days. It is orderless and doesn't feel sticky... weightless! A little goes a long way:) Excited to try more of Kiehl's products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This stuff is gold. It makes your skin feel so soft. I have tried a lot of different products and I have to say that Kiehl's products are by far superior to anything else. I'll never use anything else on my face again. I have subscriptions to all three boxy charms (basic, luxe, premium) and all the products they send me for my face, sit in my cabinet. I am always reaching for my Kiehl's products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Regimen After trying 100s of products, I have finally found what I'm looking for with the Kiehls ultra facial cream. Also I use the Avacado eye treatment, wich is absolutely amazing! Next on my list, the vitamin c serum! I've already been referring to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST facial moisturizer Have tried my share of facial moisturizers, the one is by far the best. My skin is normal during spring/summer months but winter/fall very dry. This is the perfect product for all year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I have always had very dry skin even though I was constantly applying facial lotion. I finally gave in to the hype and purchased this moisturizer and I swear by this stuff. I use it once a day (it only takes a tiny bit) and my skin is literally glowing all day, absolutely no more dry skin. I will say that for me it leaves a bit of a dewy look, but I actually like that it does that, I think it makes the skin look so glowy and hydrated. If you have dry skin... buy this and thank me later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The mosturizer I've been looking for I had been wanting to try this moisturizer for a long time, but was nervous to spend that much money for it not to meet my expectations. (I was hoping to get a sample first, but there have been limited sample options lately.) I am so pleased with this product. It is a lightweight cream that absorbs quickly and feels luxurious. I already see and feel a noticeable change in my skin. Best of all, it does not have a scent which is the last thing I wanted when applying this before bed. I will be purchasing the SPF version now for daytime use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth your money! This moisturizer has been amazing for my skin care routine. You don’t need much, isn’t heavy feeling, and has helped keep my skin more calm. As most people’s skin, mine is picky and can only take so much product. This has been a game changer. I can’t recommend it enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I am writing this review because this stuff works!!!!!! I have dehydrated skin and no amount of water I drink is helping. So I googled what’s best for my kind of skin and my skin is very dry and hard to manage. I’m freckled red skinned and it’s tough to have dry- sensitive skin and I’m prone to acne especially when I’m p m s-ing. So I did a general skin quiz I found online and it recommended another Kiehls product but that’s when I started reading reviews on the products and felt this was a better fit, it also recommended me the cucumber face wash and I purchased both and I must say This is the first time I’m using something that works and feels like my skin is happy! I’m 100% satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best in the game This is one of the best moisturisers out there. I love the texture, it's right in between lightweight and thick. Extremely moisturising, would recommend 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product This moisturizer is amazing! I have oily skin with dry patches and this moisturizer provides the best overall hydration. I have been using this and the Kiehl's Cilantro and Orange Extract Pollutant Defeding Masque for 1 week and I see major improvements in the texture of my skin. My skin is clear and glowy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer This feels very clean and fresh upon application and lasts all days. I've been using it for the past 18 months and my skin loves it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weary of New Formula Leaves a chalky residue, unlike the previous version. Feels different on the skin - doesn't glide on as easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for sensitive skin I have had very sensitive skin for years now and my face gets really red easily from hot and cold weather. Most moisturizers I use make my skin red and irritated and very hot. I got this as a gift from a friend and is definitely the best product I’ve ever used and perfect for those with sensitive skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face cream ever! I have been using it for a while now. No other face cream has done what this cream has done for my dry sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have I promise I have dry and flaky skin, even in the summer. I noticed the immediate difference in my skin as it was hydrating, glowing, and smooth. I finally woke up without flaky skin. Please try out. The hype is real!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The holy grail! This is hands down the best facial cream EVER! My skin went from being flaky and dry to looking GLOWY. I use 4-5 nights a week at bedtime and I wake up with soft and silky skin. Will never ever go without this. Can’t wait to try more products.

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!!
Date published: 2020-05-16
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.
Date published: 2020-04-24
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.
