Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion

When I love a product it usually stays with me for the rest of my life. The First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser, Revlon Colorstay Foundation and Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara are just a few examples and this Kiehl's product definitely belongs in the same category.

A few years ago -around the time that I started this blog- I was on the hunt for a new face cream. My fave from Garnier got discontinued and the replacements that I bought weren't as good. I heard that Kiehl's was like the it-brand when it comes to flawless skin, so I went to their store and a lovely salesperson recommended me the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion. A ground-breaking day that changed my skin forever.

Now this sounds quite dramatic, but for a person who has had problems with allergies and acne, it's great to finally find a product that moisturises your skin, doesn't give you allergic reactions and acne and looks great underneath make-up. The price can put many people off (€26,00/125ml) but no drugstore moisturizer can compete with this one. Believe me, I've tried.

It's a gel-like consistency, very creamy and you don't need a lot. It immediately soaks into the skin, leaving it soft and moisturized. In the beginning I also found that it helped with the oil-control on my skin, but after trying it for 4 years I can tell that isn't the case anymore. This moisturizer is also free of parabens, perfume and oil which makes it even more perfect.
It does have quite a strong scent though. I am not good at describing scents, but for me it smells quite minty and fresh. You only really smell it when you apply it and after that the scent fades quite quickly. I once tried the Philosophy Hope in a Jar and the scent of that cream stayed with me the entire day. The scent was horrible too, so that wasn't really a big success haha.

If you have oily/combination skin and are looking for a new moisturizer I would recommend giving this Kiehl's one a try. I really wish I knew about this product way sooner, but young me would probably think it's way too expensive haha!

Have you ever tried something from Kiehl's? What is your favourite?

  6. I love Kiehls products and this one sounds wonderful but because I am on the dry side, I do not like using anything that says 'oil free'. However, this was a great review! x
