I have tried so many moisturizers. So. Many. There was always something wrong with all of them. They either broke me out, didn't moisturize enough (usually the issue) or left my skin feeling really strange. I have combination skin and suffer from occasional break-outs. My skin tends to stay dry in winter, and if I use a bad moisturizer I get horrible dry patches. This is not the case with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer. I absolutely adore this lotion. It leaves my skin feeling so nice, especially now, when it's dried out from winter. It works beautifully under make-up, does not break me out (of course, this is a very individual problem), has no unpleasant scent and has a fair price. The packaging works well enough. Sometimes you have to squeeze the bottle quite a bit to get the product out, but I don't mind. I prefer this over a glass jar. The only thing I noticed that some people might have an issue with is that it can leave you a bit shiny, but I don't personally mind. It goes away fairly quickly, and if you really have a problem with it, just throw on a dusting of powder. Done.

off, the texture of this cream is to die for! They really spent a lot
of their formulation on texture, which is both great and
disappointing. I’m thrilled to find a moisturizer that is so
luxurious, but I’m bummed that silicone is the 3rd
ingredient. Most
people are fine with silicone products and it makes this moisturizer
have that nice smooth texture. However, I am really disappointed to
find such a synthetic ingredient in a company that advertises
themselves to be so natural. I
have no problem with silicones, but they DO break me out if I use too
many of them, and they seem to be lurking in everything.

4\5 stars. This is a
great moisturizer but it doesn’t play well with other products and
the fact that silicone is the 3rd ingredient means it’s
far too comedogenic for me.

This has been my go to for a facial moisturizer for almost 2 years, it is perfect for my combo skin. It seems like the older I get the more sensitive my skin gets and the more acne prone... This doesn't cause any issues. I use it at night mainly because I get pretty oily mid day. It's a light consistency, but rich and very moisturizing and it absorbs fast. This makes my skin feel so soft in the morning. I'm a big Kiehl's fan and like to go there when I have some skin related questions.

When I first applied this to my face I thought it felt heavenly . Like my dry skin just soaked it up. I applied it all over my face and neck. The next morning I had a rash everywhere I had applied it. My skin is dry but I hardly ever develop any type of sensitivity to products. Unfortunately it did not jive with my skin. I wanted to like this product but couldn't because of the awful rash it gave me. Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Cream

I’ve used and trusted Kiehl’s for a long time. I love the avocado eye cream and this cream is also in the top three Kiehl’s products for me. The packaging is simple but the product is wonderful. The cream is thick and perfect for the evenings, especially after a shower. I love using this on my elbows and knees, ESPECIALLY in the winter. I gave four stars because I’m on the fence about the scent. It wasn’t spectacular but not the worst. I’ll buy another tub and make a final call. Great product though!

This is a very good daily moisturizer.  It gets the job done and is considered a very high end product/brand.  I find that it makes my face feel very nice, and doesn't cause any break outs.  I have another moisturizer that I prefer to use every day that is a little lighter than this one, so that's why I don't use it all the time. I would recommend this moisturizer to anyone looking for a daily moisturizer.

Review for: Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream, 50ml more...
This is my go-to night moisturizer!  I've been using it for years and it works wonders with my slightly combination skin.  I use benzoyl peroxide every night and this helps balance out any dryness I may experience from it. During the winter I can even use it during the day without getting shiny by the afternoon.  I love that it comes in a jar too, so I can use every last drop of product!

This is a must-have skincare product for me. I usually use CeraVe Baby Lotion or Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, but living in the Northeast U.S., my skin needs something more moisturizing in winter months. This facial cream gives me enough hydration and softness without being heavy or sticky. I love this and will always keep it around to rescue my skin when it's cold and windy out.

I've heard so many good things about Kiehl's and purchased this from Sephora to see if it would rescue my dry skin. During the winter my face gets very dry. I use this after a nice hot shower and I love the way it feels on my skin. It does not feel heavy or thick on my skin and that is exactly what I was looking for. It did not cause any breakouts and my skin looked very healthy and moisturized.

This cream is ok but not anything spectacular. This is very thick and you don’t need much product. My skin was very dry so I thought this would help but it’s actually too much. I find that even if you use a tiny bit it feels so heavy. It ends up clogging my pores and by mid day I look like a grease ball. Not a good look. It might be ok with a light layer at nighttime but for me I’ll just pass.

So I have never tried this brand before and I was wondering if any of you have tried this and what do you think of it? Is it worth the money?

I have been curious about this brand for a while. I have really dry sensitive skin and am wondering if the price is worth it for this cream or if anybody has any recommendations for creams that are similar to this one?

I have super duper sensitive skin (like, coconut oil broke me out). There are a ton of products I can use with no problem, but I have yet to find an *amazing*, holy grail moisturizer. Does this leave your face oily? Does anyone have any really amazing moisturizers to suggest? Does this feel thick or thin?

Curious if this cream will make my face oily throughout the day after, especially around the T area of the face? I'm really debating on this product due to it's large recommendations!
