Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works REALLY well This moisturizer really softens the skin. I suffered from really dry skin and this seemed to work and help moisturize my skin. I put it on at night and my face stays soft the next day.
Date published: 2019-06-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product It's hard to beat squalene as an ingredient in skincare. That's what provides the emollient factor. Have used this for some time and with great results. Great absorption and non-greasy.
Date published: 2019-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin has never looked good! I bought this along with the a few other Kiehl products and wow! I've not been as confident as I have now. I am so impressed with my skin at the moment. It's been all sorts of different weather recently and it's been helping my skin to keep at bay. I have combination/oily and dry skin and that can come and go. With a brilliant skincare routine that I have now, I won't be going back. Kiehl's is here to stay. The only downfall is the price BUT I can honestly say it's worth every penny to feel and look confident within yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ingredients Let me start off by stating that I am allergic to avocado, weird, but true. I love the texture and no scent of this moisturizer, but could not figure out why I was breaking out. My breakouts weren't horrible, but enough to notice. It wasn't until 5 months later that I noticed there was avocado oil in the cream. 6 days of not using it later and my face is clear! Moral of the story, love the cream, great price, and texture, but I cannot use this anymore.
Date published: 2019-05-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reformulated Product is an All-Around Winner Light, non-greasy, melts into the skin, no breakouts - what's not to love? An excellent all-around product for a minimalist routine. My husband likes it, too.
Date published: 2019-05-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good A decent moisturiser, worked well on my combination skin absorbed well and did not break me out. Kept my skin hydrated , the only negative is that it comes in a pot, which I don't like as it's not as hygienic as a squeeze tube, would be great if it had SPF for everyday protection
Date published: 2019-05-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This my second purchase of this product. I do not find the texture sticky at all which is one of the reasons I buy the Ultra Facial Cream like some products. I feel I have found a great product that works.
Date published: 2019-05-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally my skin saver!! Because of the heatwave a couple of weeks ago, my skin got very sensitive that it became itchy, dry and red-ish. I tried using other brand's hydrating mask and soothing mask but all efforts were useless. Feeling devastated, I purchased this Ultra facial cream and just after two usages, my skin recovered right away! No more itchiness and the redness was gone! I was incredibly surprised when I looked at my skin in the mirror the next day! Now my skin is smooth, supple and stable again! This product is absolutely amazing!!!
Date published: 2019-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Build self confidence I have used this product since 2011 and now I recommend to my son and he is loving it. His skin is glowing and soft.
Date published: 2019-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Amazing! This face cream feels amazing when you apply it. I use it every morning and then apply foundation right after and it doesn't feel cakey or anything. It really helps my skin stay moisturized all day long even though I have makeup over it.
Date published: 2019-05-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not hydrating enough for me. Expensive cream and lasted around 3 weeks. Feels lovely but not hydrating enough for me. Wouldn't use again for this reason.
Date published: 2019-05-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to moisturiser The one and only moisturiser I will now use! Works a treat on locking in my other kiehls products and protecting my skin from the harsh winter weather. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth skin in the morning! theres a jelly-ish consistency to it but the smell is very herbal-ish wearing it at during let my skin wake up feeling really plump and healthy! the product itself is really creamy but thin so it doesnt fell terrifyingly heavy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Iv been using the cream since last November and I’m on my second pot just because iv been using this day and night as it’s changed my skin so much!! Truly believe a good serum then this moisturizer with all the amazing ingredients plus and spf on top is all you need during the day! I got my mom and my grandma on to this after using a lot more expensive so called “anti-aging” treatments and they are just impressed as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hydrating I really like this cream. These are my third bottles. Won't have pimples if I use this cream. My skin is oily in T zone, dry in two sides of my checks
Date published: 2019-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whip Cream For Your Skin I have been a loyal and 90% exclusive Kiehl’s user for over a decade and it wasn't until the last several years that I’ve begun using this moisturizer. Texture is creamy, slightly cold, and the perfect moisturizer without the greasy feel. This is my go-to moisturizer for my day time routine and blends extremely well with my kiehls bb cream on top. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend!
Date published: 2019-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowing skin I bought this in Denmark recommended to me by the sales consultant, I have really dry skin and I use this just after my calendula cleanser and they both go together so brilliantly. It makes my skin glow and worth 30 spf I don’t need sunscreen, lovely texture
Date published: 2019-04-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but It has a very chemically smell Overall it does the job and applies beautifully but is very expensive.
Date published: 2019-04-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face cream ever. I have been using Ultra Facial cream on and off for about 8years now and I have now decided it is the very best for me. I will not be buying anything else, it is light in texture, makes your skin feel refreshed and is a great base for make up, and it lasts all day, I can't recommend it highly enough, its lovely stuff.
Date published: 2019-04-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A skincare staple A staple moisturiser for everyone. It does what it says! No frills or gimmicks, standard day moisturiser. Does what it says on the tin, my go to if I can’t afford the higher end luxury one at the time [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2019-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Star Moisturizer I’m in my 40’s, and have tried every moisturizer under the sun. I’ve pretty picky about moisturizer because I have acne prone, aging skin. I received a sample of this with my tried and true, can’t ever use another, cleaner - and was a little afraid to try it. First use I thought it was going to be a nightmare because it felt so heavy on my fingers. However, once it was applied to my face it melted and absorbed instantly. One week later and I feel this is magic in a jar...seriously magic. My skin is hydrated, not greasy. No breakouts. The only thing I would recommend to change about this product would be the packaging. I feel a pump would make me feel more confident in the longevity by reducing contamination.
Date published: 2019-04-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good day and night cream I like a bit of an all rounder cream and this one ticks the box. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly. I’ve been using it for about two weeks and have noticed my skin is smoother and very well hydrated. I Have teamed it with the avocado eye cream and am very happy with results.
Date published: 2019-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite go to moisturiser I've been using this for about 3 months now and really love it. It's heavier than the gel version so I use this at night or in the winter months. Very little fragrance which is good for my sensitive skin. I've recommended it to so many people now! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2019-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Formula I have been using the ultra range for years now. I lived in NYC and got a free sample from a friend who had been using it. It’s thanks to her that I found out about it. I now live overseas and am always stocked up on it in the UK because I get so dry in the winter! I absolutely adore the formula and how it feels. It’s so lightweight and it never leaves me greasy. I truly feel like kiehls has changed my life. And don’t be fooled by the price because it is worth every bit!
Date published: 2019-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is my favourite everyday moisturiser - so absorbant and keeps skin really soft.
Date published: 2019-04-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing light moisturizer I used to have problems with my skin from other moisturizers and I was looking for a light-weight cream that can just provide me with daily moisture. This is perfect for this and I haven't put it down since.
Date published: 2019-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING MOISTURIZER! I have oily, sensitive skin that breaks out in hives quite easily. In the past I have tried to primarily use serums and oils because past moisturizers have made me break out into hives or have been too heavy and made my skin break out with acne. This moisturizer has done none of the above and has in fact transformed my skin! It is light on my skin and leaves me looking heavenly even when I drink a measly cup of water and sleep for three hours.
Date published: 2019-03-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Luxurious yet light Whilst this has a generous and rich feel it also manages to remain light. Does leave a layer after application but that eventually is absorbed into the skin. Deep and opulent and appears to plump and firm. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2019-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect I have tried tons of creams/moisturizers, but they’re either too thick or greasy. Until I found this one from Kiehl’s. Just perfect – unscented, mild, and very hydrating/moisturizing that leaves my skin smooth and look healthy. Doesn’t feel oily or sticky at all! A total must-have!
