Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is the best cream I had. Love it. Using it for a few months now. Skin is so soft and it really moisturizing. And the smell! You need to try this cream. It could be a little bit cheaper if you ask me. I would buy it years ago if it was cheaper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average to Good Depending on the Seasons It is my first purchase. I have used it for a month. So far, I rate it as an average to good level. Because I have oily combination skin, it feels a bit heavy on my face during summer. Right now I use it for my neck most of the time. I think it could work better on my face if I use it during winter when my skin feels dry. It nourishes the skin very well. I also love its light rosy smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Wow I've had sensitive skin my whole life and since turning 40, it's become even more so - to the point where I've been using just jojoba oil for moisturizer for the last five years. Which has been good, but has left my skin looking a bit dry and lack luster. Well, I just ordered and starting using this product and a sample of the Presision Lifting & Pore-tightening serum both at night and the D'Elegance Repair Cream in the morning. I can't tell you the difference it's made in just a few days! My skin looks dewy and fresh. Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite Kiehl's product! I have been using this cream for about 2 weeks and so far I love it. It has a light texture that smooths in nicely, smells great and leaves my face feeling soft and smooth. I also think it gives my skin some nice clarity and brightness. I first tried a sample but then quickly bought a full size and plan to keep using this regularly. I just turned 50 and fortunately don't have wrinkles yet -- I am hoping this is the product to help me keep them at bay for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing better I've been using another cream that was making my face red and itchy. I tried this cream with midnight recovery and my face instantly felt better, redness is going less itchy my make up goes on better and lasts longer. My face feels soft and looks hydrated. Have now ditched all my old products for Kiehls and am happy with them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Product While I've only had this cream for a few weeks, but it's quickly become a holy grail product for me. I bought it more for its hydrating properties than anti-aging (I'm only 21) since I've struggled with sensitive skin and persistent redness on my cheeks for years. This product not only cleared up most of the redness on my cheeks but sped up skin renewal to reveal a much healthier looking complexion. It even significantly reduced the appearance of several stubborn acne scars that I had acquired during my teenage years, a problem that I was planning to correct with laser treatments. I'm happy that I've finally found a product that targets so many of my unique skin concerns! It is such a relief to find a cream like this after having experimented with hundreds of samples over the course of a few years. I only wish that for the price of $79, I could get a 3oz. jar. Nevertheless, I will be buying this product for a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love the feel of this cream. It's not too heavy, not too light. My face gets very dry in the winter and of all the Kiels creams I've tried this has been the most effective. I really love the way it feels and look forward to using it each morning.
Date published: 2016-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cream! I noticed a difference in my skin after using this for one night. I know, sounds too good to be true but it is. I have used so many different products and nothing works like this one for my dry skin. I went into Kiehl's in a desperate state because I was so tired of my skin being so dry, despite using all sorts of things. It was so dry that I was exfoliating with a scrub daily! Which is not good for your skin at all and makes matters worse but I had visibly flaky skin. The Kiehl's consultant recommended a few products and this cream. I use morning and at night when not using the Nightly Refining Micropeel. My skin has never looked better or been more balanced and moisturized. I have not needed to exfoliate since using this! It is pricey but a little goes a long way and I expect this jar to last for at least 6 months. Completely worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cream! I've been looking for a holy grail product, and I think I've found it. I used the Precision Lift Pore Tightening Concentrate as a serum under the Rosa Arctica Cream, and it's like a dream. I wake up with healthy, dewy, plump skin and it feels wonderful. I would highly recommend anyone try this combination! I have dry skin, and do this combo at night because the cream is a little thick for daytime/under makeup.
Date published: 2016-12-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cream IN THE WINTER If you have oily-combination skin like me and live in a humid country I wouldn't recommend this cream in the summer. It will make your skin more oily and greasy. But I find it's nice to use in the winter when the weather is dry and cool. I don't see much of anti aging effect but my skin seems to look firmer when using this cream (or maybe it's the combination of the face wash, lotion and sun cream) P/s: The scent is completely different from the original cream and I like the original's scent better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Lightweight Cream - Highly Recommend My first impression is 'wow'. I had my skin tested at the store the other day (it indicated I had normal to oily skin and my skin's hydration level was 30%, which is pretty dehydrated) and was given several samples of this cream and I am definitely going back to buy a bottle! I am in my late 30s and have been noticing some finelines creeping onto my skin particularly under my eyes and on my forehead. I have been using Dermalogica face cream and it clearly wasn't providing sufficient hydration to my skin. After using Rose Arctica at night, two nights in a row, I woke up this morning with visibly smoother, healthier and plumper (in a good way - not puffy) skin. My skin was actually glowing. Amazing!!! I have acne-prone and sensitive skin and this does not bother it at all. This cream does have a mild fragrance which seems to bother some, but it wasn't so strong that it bothered me and it doesn't appear to be irritating to the skin either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Youth in a bottle The effects of this, for me, were immediate. I used it once before bed and woke up to the best skin I've seen in years. I cannot wait to see what will happen with continued use. I may be Dorian Grey by the end. The texture is really nice; thick, but not heavy. It goes on well, not greasy. The scent is really nice as well. I can't think of a bad thing to say about this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and love it A little goes a long way. It's the ONLY moisturizer I've ever used that is not heavy and overpowering. It smells great and goes on smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have found the "one" My skin was never sensitive type but as I reached 28 all the products I've been using worked against me. Made me oily, gave tons of acne, dry patches, you name it. Why am I going back to teenage skin? I was confused. I literally searched and searched for the best facial cream that is light, non greasy, and moisturized my skin all day. I've used leading skincare brands, from very expensive to over the counter brands at a drug store. And then finally I found Rosa Arctica. For me this cream showed difference after one application. I've gotten so many compliments that my skin is glowing, smooth, and radiant. I just purchased my second tub, I can care less about the price because it works! Plus it's also anti-aging.
Date published: 2016-06-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Doing a botanist Any Justice Although I haven't seen enough research about the "Rosa Artica" Flower Actually known as Haberlea rhodopensis. I can't say works as an effect from this flower but works decently none the less. Also want to note there is very little research of the way this flower effects the skin - and what little that was done was done by a company funded by the L'oreal company. Lastly, I've noticed the flowers extracts are near the bottom of the ingredient list making it not really part of this product at all! This efficacious cream, designed to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving overall skin firmness does the job. This thick cream has been scientifically proven to promote skin cell vitality and to protect other cells from aging. I like this cream during the winter months as I've noticed it's a little more for the drier skin types. I love the scent and the effect this cream has on my skin. Only thing I can't say I like is the marketing aspect of this, as I feel consumers aren't buying what they think they are. Also: I think I like the lightweight version better (personal preference)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without I just have to gush about my favorite Kiehls product. Last year my face was prone to breakout, greasy with dry patches, dark and dull. I was on the search for my hg face routine but in the process I ruined my skin. Then I somehow came upon this in a little sample tub. Immediately the smell and texture drew me and I noticed my skin was less greasy throughout the day. I kept using it for a week and my face wasn't painfully sensitive anymore. So I went to the store and bought the biggest tub available. I would get an even bigger size if offered. I use this whenever my skin is acting up and nothing else would work on it. It's the only product that doesn't hurt my skin and I haven't experienced dryness like that for 6 months. My mom wondered what I did to my face since I looked radiant. It feels healthy and happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Moisturizer of All Time I am a loyal user of this moisturizing cream, so I thought I'd pay my dues and leave a review to share with everyone. First off, I have dry, sensitive skin, so I'm always a bit careful when trying new products. But I've been using this product now for about two years and I still love it. It is very moisturizing and soaks into my skin. It feels very comfortable on my skin. My sisters are also hooked as well. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product I really like this cream. It has a nice scent and feels great on. One thing that disappoints me is the fact that there is no SPF in the cream (which is kind of funny since Kiehl's prides itself on having great skin products). I live in a place with A LOT of sun so SPF is a must! I really hope Kiehl's thinks about adding some SPF to the cream if not I think I'll have to start looking for a different face cream.
Date published: 2015-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silk Smooth I have been using this product day and night and I love it! You don't need much and it leaves my skin so smooth. I use the BB cream on top of it in the morning and it doesn't make me too greasy. It has also helped with the fine lines in my forehead. I feel moisturized all day and I never feel like it wears off. My face is so silky smooth all the time and I love it!
Date published: 2015-02-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favorite I have been trying to replace my uber-expensive "other brand" moisturizer with a Kiehl's product. I think I've tried about 4. Still haven't found it. I find Kiehl's creams to be way too heavy and greasy. This cream is a bit lighter weight, but still heavy for me.
Date published: 2014-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lavendar smell and texture Love this product. Smells like lavendar and is lightweight but hydrating- something that is hard to find in an anti-aging cream. Typically anti-aging creams leave my skin red and irritated, but this one is somehow soothing and effective, and it smells great! Another product to add to my collection.
Date published: 2014-12-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good I bought this for a change - I usually buy ultra facial. I am pleased with the results. My oily/combo skin has been left well moisturised and looks smoother. Unless you have very oily skin, I do not think it is moisturising enough for winter. But I may buy the "heavy" alternative for then. It is very expensive, but lasts for at least 3-4 months even with twice daily usage.
Date published: 2014-09-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my faves! For some reason I like this much better than the regular Rosa Arctica cream. I use the lightweight cream as my night cream, great texture and my face always look fresh and flawless in the morning, perfectly moisturized with no dry patches no extra oil. Right in the middle. Perfect!
Date published: 2014-09-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A-MAZING This lightweight cream is truly lightweight! I've never been enthusiastic about moisturizers in general because of their thick, heavy, greasy textures. A friend of mine recommended that I try Rosa Arctica by Kiehl's and I couldn't be happier! It's light, smooth, creamy, gentle, and absorbs into the skin fast...it doesn't leave that greasy afterlook like other moisturizers I've tried. I started using the product 10 days ago, but I'm already seeing drastic improvements in my skin. This lightweight cream is helping with oil-control, tightness, smoothness, and the general appearance of my skin. I highly recommend!!!

What is a big difference between regular and light weight?

Asked by: Anonymous
The regular is a heavy cream, and needs to be worked into the skin. I typically only use the regular during the winter months in Michigan, and sometimes only at night. The lightweight is great for year round - it melts right in, it isn't too heavy, it's a good base for make-up, and it doesn't leave daytime skin too greasy.

I have rosecia and have heard this product works well?

Asked by: Heidi Armbrust
I love the Lightweight Rosa Arctica - it gives my skin a hydrated glow that lasts the entire length of the day. Specifically I find it incredible to use around my eyes before I apply concealer - it allows my concealer to truly blend and look like my skin (not like a layer). In addition, after the first six weeks of using this in the morning and at night, my hair dresser commented on how incredible my skin looked. As I have come to learn, youthful skin is attributed to hydration and a dewy quality (not lack of wrinkles). This cream accomplishes the youthful glow and because of that softens my just barely emerging wrinkles (I'm 30). Lastly what I most appreciate about this cream is that my skin absorbs it and stays hydrated (in the mountains of Vermont in winter that's important!). It doesn't disappear after a few hours or go on too thin or go on too heavy - it is perfectly balanced. Every time I wear it, my skin feels healthy and protected. That and the very clean and subtle fresh scent make this my permanent cream for life.

The effects are comparable, but the Lightweight Cream is, obviously, lighter. It also absorbs into the skin better, as opposed to feeling as though it's just coating the surface of the skin. Unless the skin is extremely dry, I'd recommend the Lightweight Cream.

I find that the light one is a little too light in the winter. I generally wear the heavier one in winter and switch the to the lightweight in summer. I do have some dry skin but it's overall more combination. I'm Italian with big pores; I sweat a lot; and my skin can get oily. Yet I don't have any trouble with the heavier cream under my makeup in winter.
