Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anyone over 40... our little miracle! I purchased this product a little over a month ago & wow what a difference in my skin. First of all, I am a sun worshiper. All summer long, by the pool, at the beach & outdoors. No amount or number of spf can save my face from exposure. I use spf religiously ok, but I am 52 years old. I am pre menopausal. Over the past few years, I have noticed significant changes in my skin texture, tone as well as hyperpigmentation that I never had before. Having come from a career background of high end retail, I have tried just about everything. Reviews on here are not allowed to use priceS of products, but I have used the finest available to give comparison. That said, -I had to write this review: I walked into the Dallas Highland Park Village store a little over a month ago to visit my daughter Daphne. I have always used Kiehls body products but lean towards the higher end of luxury products for my face. However, -my daughter Daphne and coworker Nanette convinced me to try some of the Kiehls essence & serums on the spot. Daphne told me the beautiful stories regarding the apothecary, the natural ingredients with detail to science which thoroughly impressed me! I Purchased the essence that day and began using day/night with my regular regime. As a teen I had problematic skin, but as an adult I had pretty amazing skin until a few years ago. I have to say that the essence is Such a wonderful product and great addition to any skincare regimen. And bonus,! at an unbelievably great price point. So now, A little over a month later, my skin is baby smooth, more even in tone and the hyperpigmentation is MUCH less visible. Overall, my skin looks incredibly smooth and radiant. This product is a Little miracle worker. Thank you Kiehls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product I didn't know I couldn't live without I've always been doubtful of the necessity of essences, but this is now arguably my favourite part of my skincare routine. I had small bumps on the sides of my face that have evened out, and occasional patches of dryness/roughness/sensitivity that have disappeared since I started using this essence. It also lasts me several months even if I use it twice daily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for oily skin This product isn't for me. It made my skin even more oily than it already is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I gave this a try on a whim and I am completely in love with it. It feels like a luxurious moisture layer that seals itself in. It’s the first step in my skincare routine. My fine lines are much less noticeable, and my skin looks healthier and has a nice glow to it. It’s like a power punch of hydration for my skin. I’m 47 and work outside for a living - even on the hottest days, I don’t sweat this stuff off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally Disappointed.... I honestly have no idea how this product got rated 5 stars by anyone. I am a loyal Kiehls customer but I have to say, this is by far the worst skincare product I have ever bought by any company. I have been using this for two months now and not only don't I see any difference whatsoever, I feel like it is actually drying out my skin. I have normal to dry skin and am 49 years old if that helps anyone else looking to buy this product. I have been using it twice a day as directed and although it goes a long way and the bottle is still practically full, it was a total waste of money. I am very disappointed since it sounded like a great product based on the description but my recommendation is to save your money and buy something else. This is a definite swing and a miss by Kiehls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY nice I was drawn to this product, but did not really know what I would use it for. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise, being that I have aging skincare concerns. This essence is SO luxe! I love how it us recommended to be applied, as I had never thought to dab liquid in my palm and apply. I REALLY love the way my my skin feels afterwards. It is a treat for me to apply my Kiehl's products before bedtime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the way my skin looks after I use it Love the way my skin looks after I use it. I use the blue astringent first let my face dry, then I use the iris extract it gives me a nice glow then I moisturize
