Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great disappointment This is a great disappointment after Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. It dries extremely fast on my skin, but doesn't absorb, so it just sits on top of the skin forming a kind of a film. Not that you feel it, but you can definitely see its edges if you look closer. And no, I don't use a lot. In fact, if I used less, it just won't be enough to moisturize all the face. It does improve skin tone, but that's probably the only thing it does well. If I scratch my skin with a nail, I get white bits of cream under it. Oh, and as it dries quickly, you're most likely get tiny lumps all over your face after applying it. I had been using Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream for several years and it worked as if it was created specifically for my skin. When I heard that it's been discontinued, I bought all the jars I could find in my city. And I was delaying the moment that I have to change my moisturizer for as long as I could. I've given Age Defender Moisturizer a chance hoping that it's not as bad as most of the reviews here state. After all, Age Defender Eye Repair works great for me. Unfortunately, the moisturizer didn't work as well. In fact, it worked very bad. So here I am, facing the necessity to find a new everyday cream, and Kiehls doesn't have it. I just don't know where to look for it yet. If somebody finds something as good as Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle, please comment on this review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product Has the consistency of jello and greasy. Does not apply evenly like Facial Fuel Anti wrinkle cream. It smells like like the ingredients have gone bad. I am past the return period and not near a Kiehl's retail store. I just used the last of my FF Anti wrinkle cream. I am not a happy customer.
Date published: 2019-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer The product works for me very well. I too use less of this moisturizer than its predecessor. This is not to discount others' experience and preference. I also use the Ultra Facial Overnigjt Hydrating Masque once a week. My friends and family note the difference!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor replacement Have been a Kiehl’s customer for years, and agree with the other reviewers, this is a poor replacement for Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream. I’ve gone through two jars and will now be looking for a replacement. Come on Kiehl’s listen to your customers, bring back the original

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Question It is very disappointing that 'Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream' is discontinued, I have been using it from last 5 years and was very satisfied. Looking at other reivew seems many are feeling same. I think Kiehl's should at least share why such a good product is discontinued and is it coming back ?
Date published: 2018-12-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened? Just not a fair "replacement" for Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Not even close. Kiehl's, what happened? Why? Surely it's not a "profit" thing... I've been buying kiehl's since 1996 BTW.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Please bring back the old product! Dear Kiehls, The previous moisturizer that this replaced was much better. Please bring it back or make one EXACTLY like it! Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Complainers will complain I like this product. A lot of people like to rate this low because they don't like the fact that Facial fuel was discontinued. However that fact has nothing to do with the quality of this product. I too like facial fuel, but hey it ain't available anymore no matter how much you want to complain. I actually use less of this product that fuel. I use it every night before I go to bed.I like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible Replacement I am a long time Kiehls customer, (at least 20 years). I must say, I have to agree with the other reviews on this product. I thought I was being too critical, but the old moisturizer was much better. They did the same thing with the Tea Tree Oil body wash. Me and my extensive family were buying thousands of dollars worth of the product and they just discontinued it.? Really? It goes the same for the moisturizer. Anything that works great, they discontinue/

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring Back Anti-Wrinkle Facial Fuel Echoing other reviews - not comparable to the Facial Fuel. Different price, consistency, and results (at least for me). While it works OK, my skin is oily by the afternoon if I use in the morning. It's OK as an evening moisturizer, but Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer was much easier to apply and always had amazing results. I'm not going to pay more for a product I don't even like half as much. Will still be buying Rare Earth products but will not be buying moisturizers from Kiehls. Please bring back the Anti-Wrinkle FF moisturizer that should've never been discontinued in the first place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream The Age Defender Moisturizer is fine but the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream was the best. It is missed tremendously. Kiehl's, please bring back the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle cream. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t Hate Me Actually, I like this better than the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. I’m seeing better results with it. A little goes a long way, so be careful how much you apply.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior replacement for Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream A. The scent is reminiscent of sour milk with a hint of mint to cover it up. B. It is heavy, oily, and begins to dry/crust on the lid after a few days. C. Not worth the price--I am looking into other options because I simply can't continue with this inferior replacement for the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective moisturizer I started using this moisturizer (and the Age Defender exfoliating wash) earlier this year, and I keep returning to it. It took a bit to get used to the texture (it felt a bit greasy at first), but I do love the thickness and most of all, it is a very effective moisture. A little bit goes a long way. I've been pleased with how my face looks overall thanks to daily use of this moisturizer after every wash. I feel like it does a good job in improving tone, no breakouts from it, and helping reduce wrinkles a bit thanks to the thickness. I do wish that the container wasn't a jar (to reduce contamination), vs. a pump, but perhaps the thickness is the reason.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We need original Anti-Wrinkle Cream!!!! After I reviewed the other customers reviews, I have the exactly same thought. Kiehl’s facial fuel anti-wrinkle cream is much better than this replacement. Could you bring back the original one?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream Back! I've been buying the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream that has a matte finish and with mint scent for my husband for years. My husband just asked me after finishing a bottle that it's time to look for a better one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Even Close To Original Formula This product is not a replacement for the original anti-wrinkle cream. Not even close. It is heavy and leaves a shine on my face. It also does not have the same smell or feel as the original. Please bring back the original and discontinue this product. I am wondering (like most reviewers) why you replaced a great and popular product? I am sorry but I will be going to a competitor after many years of being a Kiehl's customer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sad to join the chorus I used a sample of this product after running out of Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream, and I agree it isn't a great replacement. As others have mentioned, it leaves my face shiny, and I don't think the scent is nearly as pleasant. I'd been using the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream for over seven years—very, very sad to see it go. Bring it back!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hate to repeat what everyone says but..... What a shame..... I’ve been using Kiel’s for over 7 years now. I switched from another brand that switched their product. This product is NOT the same as the blue container anti wrinkle. It is very very greasy.... DO NOT try it with any serum, it’ll leave a mess on your face. I’m a Kiel loyalist, but I’m seriously rethinking my loyalty and researching other brands. What a shame...
Date published: 2018-11-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Signing the petition Truthfully, I haven't used this product. But like many other reviewers, I'm annoyed that this is supposed to be a comparable replacement to the Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream. So that's why I'm rating it 3 stars: 5 stars for the product I used to order on auto-replenish. 1 star for taking it away from us and telling us this will work just the same. I've read the reviews from those who HAVE tried it so I feel no remorse for rating a product I've never purchased. Mostly, I'm posting this to join the chorus about bringing back the blue jar. It has always been my favorite Kiehl's product. It's rare to find something that you can FEEL and SEE working moments after applying it to your skin. And now you've taken it away without explanation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gave Me Shiny Face I went to the Kiehl's store today told the sales person that I use to use the anti wrinkle product in the blue container and she told me this was the new version. She gave me a mini facial and cleaned my face before applying this product. My face felt great! But about 5 hours later my face looked extremely shiny! I haven't looked so shiny since I was a teenager. I could feel the oil on my face and had to use paper to remove the excess oils. Plan on returning this product and possibly the age defender eye cream tomorrow as well. I would not recommend this product to a person that has oily skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DISCONTINUED FACIAL FUEL ANTI-WRINKLE!?! UGH! Why on Earth would you discontinue one of your best products for men - Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream? When I called looking for it’s replacement I was told this is the closest thing Kiehl’s offers. So sad. This isn’t even close. I bought up the last 2 jars (damaged) online that I could find. When those are finished off I’ll be leaving Kiehl’s and looking for a suitable replacement. Seriously, it was your best anti-wrinkle product and nothing you currently offers even comes close to the performance, smell, effect, or texture. Who makes these decisions? Count me among the many men who you’ve lost as a loyal customer. Let me know if you realize you’ve made a grievous error and you’ll have my money back. Until then, goodbye.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not to beat a dead horse.. But I agree with the majority. I’ve given it a year and I’m done. It’s not just that it’s greasy at first, I can get past that, but rather that my skin doesn’t look nearly as good using this stuff. My skin looked and felt more firm. This seems to just be a waste of money at this point. I used to be a big fan of Kiels but I think it’s time to look elsewhere.. that is unless they bring back the blue stuff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Listen to us! Whyyyyyy!? Please bring back the original facial fuel wrinkle cream in the blue jar. Mine is all gone now and I’m so disappointed you have replaced it. This product is not the same!!! Listen to your customers. We’re not happy and you never provide a reason why you discontinued the original.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring Back Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream (blue container) I've been using your product for the last 10 years. I don't understand why you'd cancel such a great product. Wish I would have known earlier, I would have bought enough to last me years. This new product is too greasy. Nothing compared to the original. I've tried using other products / brands, and nothing compares. I'd be taking my business elsewhere. Hopefully I can find another great product as the original. I keep reading that you guys take our suggestions serious, but I don't hear the plan, as to when you are going to bring it back, or when we are going to get something similar.
Date published: 2018-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I was skeptical about this product despite all the bad reviews. I think it's good although not as good as the original facial fuel anti-wrinkle Cream. I would buy again. But, what I am disgruntled about is the "Eye Alert" formula being changed. The new stuff is garbage! The L'Oréal buyout has not been good for the Kiehls prodcuts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Swing and a miss. Now who wants bacon? There is nothing I like about stuff. It's heavy and greasy and makes my skin feel like I've rubbed a slab of bacon on it. I'd rather use nothing compared to this. I have a nearly full jar of it taking up room in my medicine cabinet. Every time I open the jar, I think back to the good old days when between work, home and my gym bag I had no less than three jars of the good stuff.
Date published: 2018-09-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back Anti-Wrinkle cream! I concur with the rest. Discontinuing Anti-Wrinkle cream was a bad idea. Why? Oddly enough my auto-replenishment order still lists the beautiful, original Anti-Wrinkle cream. Clicking the link lands you here unfortunately. I have about half a jar of the good stuff left and am now only using on special occassions. Kiehl's team: We all hope you are getting the message here. I am cancelling my auto-replenishment for now. Please let us know when you decide to put the good stuff back in the lineup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOWNGRADE FROM THE ORIGINAL Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream Major downgrade from the original (blue container) - this makes the skin greasy & oily, which is the exact effect of the older one - can't understand why that was discontinued and replaced by something so different... looking for another brad/product right now

Is this moisturizer best used along with the matching serum?

Asked by: Anonymous
Actually I personally used the Age defender along with the facial fuel cleanser. But Im sure if you were to use both of the products you will also be pleased with the results. Try and give it at least a week or 2 to get into the pores before you actually see real results .

Should the Age Defender Power Serum and the Age Defend Moisturizer be used together? If so which should be applied first?

Asked by: Anonymous
The serum adds a powerful boost to the Age Defender Moisturizer. Definitely use both together. Apply the serum first. Wait a minute or two for it to be fully absorbed into your skin. Then apply the Age Defender Moisturizer. You will also find that when using both together you won't need as much of the moisturizer. And you will love the results.
