Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream

 I have been trying out Kiehl's products every now and then. So far, I cannot say I have been going gaga over everything. I did like a few things, but as a whole, I am not sure how to feel about the brand.
Anyway, the transition from winter to summer is very difficult for my skin because in winter my skin turns extremely dry to the point of being itchy and during summer it eventually becomes oily. So, the transition period is difficult for me.

Price: Rs 2500 for 50 ml P1800 approx.

As such, I had been to Kiehl's at Quest to get hold of the second bottle of my beloved F 133 which
they had withdrawn. On seeing how my face was dry and yet breaking out, the SAs suggested that I try the Ultra Facial Cream.

My Experience of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream:
I have tried two more sachets of this cream which saw me through several days. The cream feels soft and good on the skin. It is a little more emollient than Nivea Soft which I love in winters by the way. It gets absorbed easily and and leaves the skin soft and supple. I have used it in winters, but as usual, for my then extremely dry skin it was not sufficient. BUT, it worked during the transition period.

I had this last pot and one more sachet left with me which I brought here. And I have been using it during the phase when my skin was breaking out badly. So, I cannot comment if it contributed to it or if it works for acne prone skin in general.

Overall impressions: I liked the skin. It's soft and emmolient and leaves the skin soft and supple. But, Nivea Soft works in the same manner.

Verdict: Unless you are allergic to Nivea Soft, I would say get that and save your dough.

I am not extremely impressed with this cream.

What do you think of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream?


  1. Nivea always clogged my pores and I was considering trying the Kiehls one, but now I am confused.

  2. Your review actually saddened me as I already ordered one..lets see how it works for me...fingers crossed...

  3. I like using this one just on my dry patches, I usally get very dry around the lips and this is a good saviour. I also like using Nivea Soft :)
