Kiehl’s is a brand that I had heard and read a lot about, however I never actually got round to trying out any of their products… until recently. A few months ago I received the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream as one of my Klout Perks, and needless to say I couldn’t wait to try it out!
The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is described as a “24-hour daily face moisturiser”, and it is recommended to apply this once a day either in the morning, or at night. The moisturiser works by drawing and absorbing moisture from the air to replenish the skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. Personally, I prefer to apply this at night, after I have removed my makeup and thoroughly cleansed my skin. This way the moisturiser can work its magic while I catch some zz’s.
The moisturiser has a non-scented, light texture which is absorbed into the skin within a few minutes. I found that you only need to use the tiniest amount of this product, so although quite pricey, this 125ml tub will be lasting me a good few months! Once applied to the skin, I find the product to be very soothing – especially on that tight-skin feeling I sometimes get after cleansing my face. In addition to this, I do sometimes suffer from sensitive skin, however I am pleased to report that this product does not sting or burn, nor has it resulted in any breakouts – score!
Although I haven’t noticed any major changes in my skin throughout the last few months, I have noticed that any dry patches which I would normally get during the winter months have been reduced, so I will definitely carry on using this as my everyday moisturiser until it runs out.
The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturiser is available in a 50ml or 125ml tub, and starts from £24. Available from Space NK.
