Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, review

Hello my lovely readers, today’s post is a review of a face cream I have been using for quite a while now – the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. It is described as a 24-hour daily face moisturizer, which makes it perfect for the colder season, when my skin becomes very dry and dehydrated.

The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. With continuous moisture replenishment throughout the day, it leaves the skin smooth, soft and healthy-looking.

It contains a multitude of ingredients which provide the nourishment and moisturization of the skin. Antarcticine (Glacial Glycoprotein Extract) – is a glycoprotein that helps hydrate skin and provides it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding skin from the damaging effects of free-radicals. It further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating the skin’s retention of natural water reserves.

Imperata Cylindrica (Desert Plant Extract) – its roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides an immediate and lasting hydrating effect. In the cream formulation, Imperata Cylindrica helps skin to store and retain moisture efficiently – even in the driest weather conditions.

Squalane –  is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. Because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.

My face cream comes in a 50 ml/1.70 oz. jar and has a valability of 12 months. There is another bigger version of 125 ml/4.2 oz jar. I like the simple black on white packaging, it is very easy to read and understand.

It is very moisturizing! I simply love it in the colder season. Although it is very nourishing, it has a very rich but light texture, that is very easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it smooth, soft and happy. It does not leave a greasy film onto the skin, in the way other rich creams do, and I love it! My oily skin dehydrates quite a lot in the colder season and I can’t stand the greasy film on the skin. After the cream is absorbed into the skin the foundation sits very well and evenly on top of it.

It feels very soothing and comforting on the skin. I did not have any skin reactions to it, like reddening or itching. After using it in the morning, the nourishing effect lasted for many hours on the skin so I felt the need to moisturize in the evening after taking the make-up off.

I also really like the fact that is very money-saving. I only need a pea-size amount for the entire face. I have been using it for almost a month and I barely made a small dent in it. I am sure it will last me for at least 6 months. And I have the smaller cream!

Ingredients : AQUA, GLYCERIN, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, SQUALANE, BIS-PEG-18 METHYL ETHER DIMETHYL SILANE, SUCROSE STEARATE, STEARYL ALCOHOL, PEG-8 STEARATE, UREA, MYRISTYL MYRISTATE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAETHYLHEXANOATE, PRUNUS ARMENIACA KERNEL OIL, PHENOXYETHANOL, PERSEA GRATISSIMA OIL, OLEA EUROPAEA OIL, ORYZA SATIVA BRAN OIL, CETYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, IMPERATA CYLINDRICA ROOT EXTRACT, STEARIC ACID, METHYLPARABEN, CHLORPHENESIN, PALMITIC ACID, DISODIUM EDTA, ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, PROPYLPARABEN, CARBOMER, TRIETHANOLAMINE, PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS OIL, XANTHAN GUM, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, TOCOPHEROL, PSEUDOALTEROMONAS FERMENT EXTRACT, HYDROXYPALMITOYL SPHINGANINE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL.

It can be found in the Keihl’s stores (AFI Cotroceni Mall and Baneasa Shopping City Mall in Bucharest, Romania) and online at the price of 115 ron/27.50 dollars – 50 de ml.

All in all, the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is a very good moisturizer for the colder season. It has a light but rich texture and a long lasting nourishing effect on the skin. It is also money saving because you only need a small amount for each use. The price is indeed not affordable for everyone but if you take into consideration the benefits it brings to the skin and the period of time it takes to finish it I think it is worth it. From me it gets the -A grade. Tell me Have you used it ? What are your impressions ? Until next time,   Love, M

  • Ah, ce-mi plac cremele super hidratante dar care nu se simt greu pe ten. Asa pare si asta, pacat ca Kiehl’s au doar un singur magazin in Romania.. 🙁

    • Monica Tone

      Sunt doua magazine, am scris in postare. Ambele in Bucuresti

  • E prima data cand aflu de aceasta crema, dar daca esti multumita de ea, inseamna ca isi merita banii.

    • Monica Tone

      Da, chiar sunt multumita. Nu as folosi-o vara caci e prea hidratanta dar in sezonul rece este perfecta. Pretul pare mare dar este super spornica, cred ca ma va tine cel putin 6 luni.

  • De multisor ma tenteaza produsele Kiehl’s si trebuie sa incerc si eu ceva de la ei, mai ales ca descrierea cremei asteia suna tare bine!

    • Monica Tone

      Ma bucur ca iti este de folos articolul meu. O sa iti placa crema, este perfecta pentru iarna. Kisses!

  • Si mie mi se deshidrateaza rau tenul in aceasta perioada, mi-ar placea sa o incerc 😀

    • Monica Tone

      Este foarte buna pentru perioada rece, mergi la magazin si cere mostre. O sa iti placa.

  • Si mie mi se pare potrivita tot pentru iarna. Pe timpul verii, parca era cam mult.

    • Monica Tone

      Asa e, nici eu nu as folosi-o vara. Este prea mult, cu toata textura ei usoara.

  • ella fairytale

    Iarna avem nevoie de o ingrijire mai atenta a tenului, asa ca iti multumesc pentru recomandare.

    • Monica Tone

      Cu mare drag, incearc-o in magazin.

  • Nu am folosit pana acum produsele Kiehl dar am auzit de ele, multumim pentru review, cred ca varianta de 50ml este cea mai potrivita.

    • Monica Tone

      Asa e. Daca varianta asta tine atat de mult imi imaginez ca varianta mare e nesfarsita

  • Ghimpu Elena

    Nu am incercat nimic de la Kiehls pana acum dar mereu sunt in cautare de produse noi iar brandul acesta mereu m-a tentat.

    • Monica Tone

      Ce imi place mult la ei este ca la vizita in magazin iti fac o analiza a tenului si iti recomanda produsele potrivite. Si pleci cu 5 mostre sa le incerci asa, e super

  • Nu am produse de la ei dar chiar m-ar tenta , prima oara am vazut-o la Miss Glamorazzi sau Ingrid Nilsen de pe you-tube , stiu ca ea o lauda .

    • Monica Tone

      Da, si eu o urmaresc pe Ingrid, e asa de tonica si vesela. Trebuie sa incerci produse de la Kiehl’s , o sa iti placa

  • Nu am incercat nimic de la ei, dar am auzit numai cuvinte de lauda!

    • Monica Tone

      Du-te si incearca-le in magazine daca poti, vei primi mostre. Plus ca au si produse travel size le poti incerca si asa

  • Sihaya’s World

    Pretty nice formula, too bad for the jar packaging. 🙁

    • Monica Tone

      Yes, I would have liked a squeezy tube.

  • Imi doresc ca anul ce vine sa incerc produsele Kiehl’s :)))
    Gata…prima dorinta pentru 2017 😛

    • Monica Tone

      Ma bucur ca te-am inspirat. Sa mergi in magazin sa incerci produsele , iti vor placea

  • Stefania Medelet

    Am vazut atatea review-uri pozitive despre produsele Khiel’s, incat imi doresc sa merg in magazin si sa le achizitionez pe toate. 🙂 Sigur inainte de Craciun o sa-mi fac singura un cadou.

    • Monica Tone

      Super, sa ne arati ce iti vei lua

  • vyo vyoleta

    Ce de produse incercati, pe unele dintre ele nici macar nu le-am incercat si nici de denumire nu am auzit, imi e si rusine sa spun acest lucru. Dar as vrea totusi sa incerc aceasta crema de la Khiel’s.

    • Monica Tone

      Mergi in unul din magazine, sunt in postare, iti vor face o analiza a tenului si iti vor recomanda o rutina de ingrijire, primesti si 5 mostre din ce ti s-a recomandat 🙂
