The Kiehl’s website raves that this cream is the brand's number one product, providing “lasting 24-hour hydration:” a claim I may have rolled my eyes at. But my curiosity got the best of me, và I decided not lớn wash my face for 24 hours after applying the cream. Lớn my surprise, I woke up the next day with flawlessly plump, moisturized skin. It even looked like I used something stronger, like a face mask or exfoliant. This sản phẩm is neither of those things, but it produces comparable results on a daily basis.

As far as long term results, I continue lớn notice a huge difference in my skin. Since using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, my dry patches have vanished và seasonal dryness is a problem of the past. In fact, I haven’t used a single hydration face mask in months because I haven’t had the need to. Overall, the cream solved my winter woes và drastically improved my skin tone và texture.

The Scent: Non-existent

True lớn its simplicity, Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream has no detectable scent. I appreciate this detail as it prevents the cream from mixing with other fragrances I use on a daily basis.

The Packaging: Simple, chic, and slightly inconvenient

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream features a simple trắng plastic jar with lots of đen text on the front. I appreciate the simple packaging without fancy colors or bottles because I know it keeps the price down for consumers. Personally, I would rather have a simple bottle to hold my sản phẩm if it means I can save a few dollars.

One of the few complaints I have about this cream, however, is the contamination possibilities that come along with a jar. Make sure to lớn use a clean makeup brush or freshly washed hands lớn get product out of the container—this greatly minimizes contamination and bacteria growth that could affect the product & your skin.

The Value: Plenty of product for the price

I tested the 4.2 oz jar which, at $55, isn’t exactly what I consider affordable skincare. But upfront pricing isn’t always what it seems—a little goes a long way with this facial cream, so I anticipate it will last me many months. You definitely get more than what you pay for with this face cream, but if you’re still hesitant, the standard 1.7 oz jar comes in at $32, & a 1.0 oz jar is available for an affordable $22. Based on the results và how long it will last me, this cream is well worth the price.

Similar Option: A drugstore fave

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($14): As my former go-to simple moisturizer, CeraVe’s Moisturizing Cream both looks & feels similar to lớn Kiehl"s Ultra Facial Cream. While CeraVe is dermatologist recommended và a great product for anyone with sensitive skin, I find the Kiehl"s cream lớn meet & exceed the results of CeraVe. Kiehl"s Ultra Facial Cream is more hydrating and lasts longer than its competitor.

Our Verdict: Perfectly plump skin

I can’t say enough good things about this product; I’m worried I’m gushing. If you want maximum hydration, moisture retention, & overall softer skin, this is absolutely the face cream for you.
