Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bought my first small Keihls ultra facial cream whilst on a birthday weekend in Edinburgh and have used no other cream since! Just bought the large version and couldn't be happier with the product.
Date published: 2019-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cream ever I’m a complete skincare junkie and I’ve pretty much tried every cream out there. This facial moisturizer is by far my favorite - as long as they keep making this cream, i’ll keep buying it. It is super hydrating and feels really good on your skin, but not too heavy that my makeup can’t go on top of it. I use it daily morning and night. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Face Cream I have tried a lot of face creams through the years this one is one of the best ones I have ever had. Sinks in quickly and makes a visible differnce to my skin immediatly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from causing breakouts... Everyone is raving about this cream so I decided to give a go. I already am using midnight recovery from kiehl's and I am very happy with it. However, this cream is a big disappointment. I started getting breakouts from using it, and not even in T zone but in random places on my faces. I did not have any skin issues in 10 years, so unfortunately this is a big let down for me and I will have to return to my usual skincare...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Hydrating Skincare Staple Ever since my work moved to a new building where the temperature was controlled by a/c my skin started becoming really dry - which had never been a problem for me before. I did some research into very hydrating moisturisers and stumbled across this one, with such good ratings and reviews behind it I opted to give it a go - fast forward to over a year later and I wouldn't use any other moisturiser for my face. I use it alongside several other Kiehl's products as part of my daily skincare routine - my skin has never felt softer or looked better! Would definitely recommend trying this moisturiser - a little goes a long way - I only need to buy a 50ml tub every 4 months or so and that's with using it twice a day, I also sometimes use it to mix with my foundation when I don't want too heavy a coverage, so for me I think you get great value for your money. Definitely one of my favourite Kiehl's products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Delivery was fast, love this product, not as thick as the one with SPF which I prefer but still great. I have very sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all
Date published: 2019-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer on the market This is by far the best moistures I’ve ever used. The texture is very lightweight and easy to blend into the skin. There’s no scent or fragrance which is very nice. I’ve used this product for over two months and my skin has improved! A little goes a long way, you don’t need to put too much on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury, Rich, Non-Greasy - Great All Rounder! I bought this after wanting to try something from the Kiehl's brand for so long. I decided that with the amount of reviews for this all rating it highly I would give it a go, and I am already a convert after 4 weeks. The moisturiser is great for my hormonal, sensitive skin as well as my husbands pretty normal but sometimes a little greasy in the T Zone area skin! It feels luxurious when putting it on after double cleansing. I typically use this before bed after a double cleanse, though if I am wearing a "full face" of makeup I use this as both a primer and moisturiser and my makeup looks flawless. Would recommend if you're looking for a really good basic moisturiser that feels rich, and does a great job and doesn't aggravate sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best everyday moisturizer I've found I like to keep things simple, which I why I love this product. It's simply the best moisturizer I've found for everyday care and keeps my skin looking and feeling healthy. My skin is sensitive and a combo between dry and oil prone areas, so keeping it happy is difficult. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream strikes a perfect balance: it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, replenishes the dry areas, and balances out the oily parts. I use it year round. I also love its lightweight feel, yet it lasts all day. I'd highly recommend this product!
Date published: 2019-07-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The reformulated product is not good. I don't know what Kiehls thinks it's doing reformulating this classic product. But the reason it was so effective is because it had urea/carbamide in it. Now people who suffer from kp on their face like myself are going to need to seek a different product to use. How removing one of the active ingredients in this product could be seen as an improvement is beyond me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewy but not Oily I bought this during spring for my dry skin; used it day and night with other products (AM:sunscreen, PM:serum) and my skin looks so dewy no matter what. It also performed really well during my vacation in the hot and humid tropics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its worth the price I been using this cream almost 1year recommended by my friend..well im lucky that my sensitive skin likes it lol
Date published: 2019-06-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Skin Savior Had been having a dry skin last year since I been using multiple products, but when I tried this Ultra Facial cream from Kiehl's, I got a little upset since I should have tried it before when I was asked at the airport to try it. I could have save more money by not checking out other facial products that will never match the effect of Kiehl's facial cream. I'm having a hard time controlling my self no to touch my face because it's so soft. Two thumbs up.
Date published: 2019-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from a true classic I have used many facial moisturizers before trying this one that just did not get the job done. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream is hands down the best moisturizer I have used. I have combination skin so I get worried about pore clogging and excess oil, but this product is perfect for my skin.
Date published: 2019-06-10
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!!!

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.

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.

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.
