Ultra Facial Cream is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 671.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Moisturizer This is so far the best Moisturizer I have ever tried(although the ultra facial balm is a close 2nd). My skin is always super dry no matter if its winter or summer, humid or dry. But in the winter it's far more worse and feels like its splitting open and is painful. This moisturizer makes my skin feel so healthy and hydrated. It's not really greasy or anything. I just love it. The price is more than I'd normally spend, but for results I get, I overlook that. Currently on my 3rd jar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothed my super dry skin I have combination skin - my forehead gets incredibly oily, my cheeks can get slightly dry, and my nose is somehow simultaneously dry and oily. My nose is often red and irritated with constant dry, peeling skin but will get oily throughout the day. I used to use Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer. It was sufficient during the warmer periods of the year, but I noticed it wasn't heavy duty enough once it started getting cold. I feel like the UF Moisturizer was also bit on the greasier side, so I'd end up using a second moisturizer for my forehead. I was running low on the moisturizer and decided it would be a good time to try a different product. I was debating between the Ultra Facial Cream and the Skin Rescuer and ultimately decided on the UF Cream because there were great reviews and the price point was a bit better. I've used it for about a week now and my dry skin is completely gone. What I would do is apply a generous layer over the dry spots after washing my face. I let it sink in for a few minutes (it will sting at first as your skin is healing) and then I'll spread it over the rest of my face. There is still some redness but that seems to be slowly fading as well. This formula doesn't feel greasy like the UF Moisturizer so I don't have to use a second moisturizer. Overall, incredibly happy with the results. It's definitely worth the money. This will be my go-to moving forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin saviour!! After having only ever bought moisturisers based on price and availability, instead of what my skin actually needed, I did some research and found this as I realised I needed to up my hydration game. Safe to say, I'll never use another moisturiser ever again. Applied before bed, I wake up to soft, supple and noticeably happy skin and it's a great base to set my skin up for the day. I also have fairly blemish prone skin, and I've never struggled with clogged pores or build up using this. The formula is luxurious and thick, and a little bit goes a long way. I've let friends try this product and they're now hooked too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for everyone! I bought this as one of my first Kiehl's products. Unfortunately it was too greasy and heavy for my skin. I passed it onto my daughter and she loves it. She will not use any other moisturizer on her skin now. My daughter recommended to me that it might be good for winter use. She was right. Being in a cold, dry region. I use this product on my skin when I have been out in the cold, windy weather. It does not clog my pores. A little goes a long way with this moisturizer and the Ultra Facial Cleanser. A value for your $$$

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG Why I start using it until now?!!!! I just bought a 50ml ultra facial cream for trying. OMG it is SOOO GOOD!! It's hard to describe how soft and smooth when and after using this cream. It's not thick at all but it is indeed hydrating my skin. Will buy again next winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Contains parabens, disappointing for a self-proclaimed "natural" brand This moisturizer is not bad, especially for combination skin. But why does it contain parabens? So few high-end brands still do, and you are supposed to be one of the "natural" ones. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So enriching This moisturiser enriches my skin all year round. I love it and would never want to use anything else. Highly recommended.
Date published: 2018-11-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not acne friendly I got a sample of this as none of the other moisturisers were working out. The lady said that whilst it had oils in it I wouldn’t break out. I forget her reasoning. I have acne and this made my skin worse and my blackheads were just so so bad. I couldn’t figure out what it was then I ran out and yep, it was this. Glad I hadn’t wasted any money on it. If your skin hates oils, don’t go for this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 Face Cream This stuff is absolutely magic. Soaks into skin so easily and hydrates well overnight. Not overly thick of greasy like other moisturisers. A tub lasts forever as well, cannot recommend highly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found my new Moisturizer So I've never really tried kiehls before and got a sample of the ultra facial cream and fell in love. I have gone through so many moisturizers and couldn't find one that helped the dryness around the sides of my nostrils and the apples of my cheeks until now. My face stays moisturized throughout the day and it helps so much especially with wearing makeup. I totally plan on buying more kiehls products now because of this experience!
Date published: 2018-10-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great moisturizer I'm relatively new to Kiehl's and wanted to start incorporating a skincare routine into my life. I was recommended Kiehl's from a few friends and this was one of the first products that I bought. I've been very happy with it so far because it is super light while still keeping my face moisturized. I have combination skin, but I still put a little bit on my T-zone. I mostly focus on my cheeks and neck. I've been using it for about 2 months now and have noticed that my skin is much softer and smoother .
Date published: 2018-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I suffer with dry/ dermatitis skin around my nose but oily in the t zone. Didn't know a moisturiser could do it all! My skin feels super soft and amazing. haven't had any break outs since using it which I do get with other moisturisers. Only downfall it smells like those mini jelly aliens you used to get when you was a kid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this moisturizer! I have used many facial moisturizers without ever being impressed. This impressed me it makes my skin soft and keeps my skin moisturized all day. It doesn't have any greasy feeling and is working perfectly with my combination skin. Definitely will be repurchasing!! <3
Date published: 2018-09-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its the best you can buy! I have been using this now for 4 years and my skin is still loving it....I constantly get asked how my skin looks so fresh and plump ... and it's a combination of all your great products but this one in particular... I always dread running out! My skin is so hydrated and I am now 45 but even I am surprised at how great my skin is. It keeps it plump and hydrated all day and so super soft. If I had to choose on of your products over everything, this is the one that I couldn't live without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A necessity This week, I learned just how great Kiehls moisturizer works (and that my skin might be addicted to it!) I ran out of my deluxe-size moisturizer while on my honeymoon in Spain. Afterward, my skin became so dry and was actually peeling. I used my husband’s cheap, pharmacy moisturizer but it didn’t do anything for me. Fortunately, I was able to locate a Kiehls in Barcelona and purchased the facial cream. The instant I put it in, my skin was back to “normal.” SO beyond thankful I was able to find a location abroad and very thankful for the moisturizing power of Kiehls!!
Date published: 2018-09-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great face cream! Purchased this one and the one with SPF, the texture is not the same at all, this one is lighter and easier to absorb. My face is dry so I don't really have issues with any but if yours is a bit oily, the one with SPF won't be nice at all, this one yes. However, both creams are great!
Date published: 2018-09-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome For Combination Skin I love this moisturizer after applying it gives me a nice glow that isn’t heavy or cakey on my skin. I will be purchasing again!

Date published: 2018-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely moisturiser! This is the first facial cream I have ever bought that cost more than £10 and it was so worth it. I'd been using E45, bio-oil and sebamed previously, which while they all did a relatively good job at helping my dry skin, did not provide a lot of hydration and actually keep my skin subtle for more than a few hours. This cream, within days, made my skin bouncier and gave it a glow I'd never experienced before. It is not a miracle worker, but no cream is. This will however improve the condition of your skin and it feels much healthier to me. I use it with the ultra facial cleanser and the mario badescu rose spray afterwards and I've never been happier with how my skin looks. I'll be buying this stuff for a long time. The products are fantastic, great price for if you are branching out and trying to find a more luxurious skincare ritual and still affordable unlike many other premium skincare lines. After you use it, the price will be completely logical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Dry Winter Skin I normally don’t even write reviews but I moved to Minnesota and my skin is so dry during the winter it cracks and flakes. This was a lifesaver it kept my skin soft and hydrated after one application at night after the shower. Goes on light and absorbs quickly, love the texture. I have sensitive skin and get a rash from a lot of lotions and this one had no reaction. It’s summer now and I still use it every night, great product.
Date published: 2018-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for sensitive skin I have extremely sensitive skin and have reactions to a large range of products. When I first moved to the UK my skin became incredibly dry and none of my usual trusted moisturisers were working. A colleague recommended the ultra facial cream to me and fixed my dry skin within a week. I love this product.
Date published: 2018-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cure for everything I had very oily skin and am acne prone. I thought that this might help keep my skin moisturized and hydrated while using all my drying acne products and I was right! I don’t have oily skin anymore and my acne has decreased! This was the best purchase and the large container lasts for weeks!
Date published: 2018-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regrets I have been struggling with an extremely dry face in the winter months and I've experimented (and wasted money) on many different moisturizers. Finally I came across this one! Right away my dry skin went away. I would moisturize in the AM and by nighttime my face would still be moisturized! I was so happy with the results and I will recommend this product to anyone. Additionally, I have very sensitive acne prone skin but this moisturizer does not cause any problems. Thanks Kiehl's :)
Date published: 2018-07-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Cream is Wonderful! I recently completed chemo and radiation therapy and my skin was so dried out I didn't think it would ever feel like skin again. Thanks to Kiehl's , and especially this face cream I am finally getting my pre-treatment skin back. I recommend highly!

I have used both, but have not seen much of a difference between the 2. I really like both creams. The texture of the multi corrective is a little bit nicer, but I choose to use this, as it is less expensive.
