Face It: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, How Does It Stack Up?

Yesterday I talked about the Ultra Facial Moisturizer, today, it is one of Kiehl’s bestsellers, the Ultra Facial Cream’s turn! This one has quite a reputation. It was tested in Greenland by a special team of hiker who reported great results upon usage of this product. And knowing Greenland, this product still managed to perform under harsh conditions. If it worked for the hikers, think what this product can do for us living in hot little Malaysia.

Texture-wise, I find this one more lightweight than the Moisturizer. It ha the same fluffy white colouring found in the whole Ultra Facial range. Scentless yet again which is a thumbs up! I was given some advice by a KCR to use this very sparingly. Just a smidgen will do the trick. As you don’t need to use a lot of the product at one go, this tub is actually going to last you a very long time! Great for value-conscious consumers like myself.

Again, my dry cheeks soaked this baby right up! And surprise surprise, my T-zone quite likes this one too! I feel this Cream is much more suitable for me. I wake up to a very light sheen on my T-zone which is very good news to me. I believe this one is probably the closest I am getting to HG for now. Ain’t that grand!

Loves: no scent, very light texture, moisturizing for all skin types
Gripes: NONE!!

The Ultra Facial Cream comes in tub form of 50ml retailing at RM 100.

  1. Wow you really do use ALOT of Kiehl's! :)
    I've also just started using the Ultra Facial Cream (few days now) and so far I really like it too.

    Doesn't grease on me (yay) and speads easily (good for a massage). Most importantly it keeps my skin moisturized.

  2. I have oily skin and usually I will avoid buying skin cares tht is in cream form. Frm your review, looks like this product is quite good. I' m thinking to get a sample frm them and try before I purchase. I am new to ur blog and I do live ur blog! Great review on products! - Norahs-

  3. Hi Foxy Frangipani.

    Yeah I do. All thanks to their try before you buy philosophy. Loving it! Cool!

    Am glad it is working great for you too! I am loving this baby loads!

  4. Hi Norahs,

    Thanks for the encouraging compliment!

    Yeah it is a good product. But with oily skin you are probably better off consulting with their KCRs. They'd most likely introduce you to another range they have called the Blue Herbal range. My friend who has oily skin uses that and is loving it!

    Do get some samples first. They are really nice and generous people so don't be shy!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
