The “Ultra Facial Cream” by Kiehl’s comes in a pharmaceutical-looking white tub with black inscriptions on it.
This cream has a thick texture.
This product is designed for all skin types.
The “Ultra Facial Cream” smells a bit chemical, but it does not overpower when applied to the skin as the fragrance of the product fades away after a few moments.
This cream is recommended for everyday use by Kiehl’s. The product was tested on dry skin and was found to have soothing and comforting effects as soon as it is applied. The “Ultra Facial Cream” makes the skin feel refreshed quickly. However, the hydration effect is light and minimal, so, it does not hydrate and nourish deeply. In fact, after an hour, the face felt dry again and a reapplication of the cream was necessary to rehydrate the skin. The cream is easy to apply as it glides on the skin smoothly and gives it a fresh glow. While it gives off an oily texture at the beginning, after application to the face, the cream dries quickly, and the feeling of greasiness subsides. After application, the “Ultra Facial Cream” leaves a layer on the skin, so the skin does not absorb the product fully because of the thick texture of the moisturizer. However, there is no feeling of oiliness or stickiness on the skin. Kiehl’s claim that the cream “leaves the skin smooth, soft and healthy-looking” is true, however, the product does not offer a deep and lasting hydration effect and so reapplication throughout the day is recommended.
This product is sold in Lebanon for 42$/50ml.
