Most Helpful Positive Review Get the SET
I was shocked to read some of the negative reviews about this product, that i had to write my own experience with it.
I have been using this product for a little over 2 months now and i have been getting complements on my skin like i never did before.
My recomendation on great results is to to get the whole SET.
(Age Defender Serum, Eye Cream, and Moisturizer)
After application, your face may look a little greasy but the skin will soak it in. Also, you don't have to apply A LOT!
I use the whole set morning and night. At night however, after applying the serum, I apply midnight recovery serum also, then i apply the Age Defender Moisturizer.
Use the whole set to notice results, i'm serious!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed
I bought this product due to discontinuing of the Facial Fuel ant-wrinkle cream which is awesome. The new product is a repackaging on the heavy lifting Facial Fuel which had the same negative properties. Very greasy....caused my skin to breakout after about 3 weeks use. Found myself applying it and then using tissue to wipe away the greasy feeling after a few minutes of penetrating.
I will be looking for products other then Kiehls and returning this cream. Bring back facial fuel anti-wrinkle and I will be back.
Reviewed by 113 customers HONESTLY, I AGREE WITH THE OTHER USERS, NOT A GREAT PRODUCT
HonestKiehlsReview from Los Angeles, CA
I absolutely love Kiehl's products, and few have worked. However, this one, no bueno. Many say it's greasy, oily, leaves your face shiny. They are all correct. Not sure if this is supposed to be the effect, but I sometimes get breakouts , so I'd say this is a product not for me, or at least my skin type, or if perhaps I'm using it wrong, I don't know.
I've been using this product for about 3 months, and to be honest I don't see any results. Except only this. I only use this product at night time, and sure my face is oily and shiny, but in the morning I wake up with skin that to my eyes seems supple, like if there's a clean coat, and as long as I wash my face in the morning its fine, but then again, its caused some breakouts before, so there's that. I don't know if I'm reaping any benefits from this moisturizer, but so far, I still don't think its any good. This was my first anti aging product ever and for sure will not be buying this one again.

Did the skin test in store and this was recommended. Have used Kiehl's products before and have been extremely happy with them. This product however is like putting grease or oil on your face. Blackheads appear within a day of use every time, so have just given up using it. Steer clear and try a different product.

I used to love the moisturizer they stopped producing and replaced with this, but this stuff just feels weak and greasy and non absorbent
Bring Back the Blue Bottle
franklinfarm from Los Angeles, CA
I sorely miss the Facial Fuel "Heavy Lifting" cream for men. Texture and results were far superior to this product. Why change the product line so often? Each time you discontinue something and I have to hunt for another is an opportunity for me to try other brands. Keep consistent, build upon, don't replace. Thanks for listening, I'm glad to see Kiehls responding to reviews and requests.
Please bring it back!!! Don't care if it has parabins if it works.
Bring Back the Former Formula, the Former Packaging
Alistair from Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY, USA
I have been a Kiehl's loyalist since my early 20s and I love many of their products. My favourite had been the blue tin of age correcting, deeply moisturizing magic. This is a substandard substitute for that at about $5.00 more than what I recall paying for the other cream. Kiehls, please listen to your base and bring back what so many of us loved. Bring back what worked.
Heavy, oily, shiny!!! Bring back the older version please!
Emerson from undisclosed
The older version came with a blue bottle with a gray cap.
It was subtle, light, and matte. It was perfection and I used it in years.
But now, what in the world is this? This feels like putting vaseline lotion on your face. Very heavy and shiny and oily on the face.
Bring back the old formula!
Whoever came up with this formula should get fired!
Bad, real bad
FutureG from NY
This product doesn't match the normal excellence of a Khiel's product. It also is the only product I've ever used that pills on the face. Made quite an embarrassing impression, on a date.
DO NOT PURCHASE
Bring back the old anti wrinkle cream
JuanDoutres from San Diego, CA
thick and greasy. Not a fan. Please get rid of this.
Great Product; Wish it came in a larger size
NoMiDogLover from Petoskey, MI
Truth: This product is expensive. This product works. I love it.
Feedback: The packing seems a little much. Putting it in a tube would lower the price substantially and offering a larger size would grow your sales of the product exponentially, I believe.
Young Folks Don't Need
Unclelido from New York
Laughable that an age 18-24 is reviewing this product, why would a person age 18-24 need an age reducing cream? Ridiculous or fake.
Great product - use with others in range
SamL from Auckland
I saw quite a lot of negative reviews of this, but I really love it, and have noticed a big difference to my skin after using it for a week or so. I cleanse, tone, and then apply the Kiehl?a vitamin C serum, and then apply this moisturiser with the matching eye cream morning and night. It is very thick and unlike most other moisturisers but you only need a small amount. They also have a daily use moisturiser in a blue tube that?s lighter that could be used during the day.
Y?all are using this wrong probably!
MikeLikeySomuch from Lynbrook NY
So I can definitely understand where the ?greasy? reviews are coming from.... this product is really thick and texturized. I generally have very oily skin and I found that a lot of kiehls products don?t work for me and I was skeptical of this at first.. BUT! I realized that the best way to use this is at night before bed. In the morning just wash it off and apply facial fuel moisturizer after a shower and you will see amazing effects! Definitely tightens up face!
Feels Great, Works... eh
thebigkahuna from Arkansas
I love the feel of this thick lotion and the smell, however I do not really notice any dramatic aging changes. If it is supposed to help defend against wrinkles in the long-run, that would make sense because I'm definitley not getting any more lines, but I just don't see anything fantastic about it
High priced lotion/cream no reults
Ahon from San Francisco, CA,
I tried this cream for several months and didn't see any results or benefits. This cream felt like any regular face lotion but higher priced. I used to buy the Facial Fuel Wrinkle cream previously made but somehow they discontinued making it. That cream DID work and was outstanding. This, on the other hand, fails in comparison. I will not shop at Kiehl's anymore unless they bring back the old formula. I'm tired of trying their new products without results.
Please bring back the old formulation
fcobob from AZ
This product is just OK. I would really like for Kiehl's to bring back the old formulation: Facial Fuel Anti-wrinkle Cream. That product is what got me into Kiehl's products, it was amazing and I'm very sad it has been discontinued , please bring it back!
Wow this cream is amazing
cbizzel from Chicago, IL
I logged in to buy a refill of this cream and I can't believe all the negative reviews! 1st - those reviews are winning that this product is different than another - not actually reviewing this one. 2nd - this is the best moisturizer/anti-wrinkle cream I've ever used. I've tried almost all the Kiehl's facial creams and this is the best:
*need only a tiny amount, lasts almost a year
*thick, luxurious feel that goes on smooth and not oily.
*works great with just other serums and sunblock
I'm into it
GetupGetupGo from Los Angeles
When I first tried this product I felt like it was too thick and a little too "moist."
Then I switched to just using it before bed. It's fantastic. My skin has never looked so good. I use it with the Age Defender Dual Action Cleanser. Then during the day I just use the regular SPF Facial Fuel Moisturizer.
Haven't had a single breakout and my skin looks great.
Fadeproof from undisclosed
Agree with all of the other reviews, this is greasy/ineffective and a FAR CRY the amazing prior product-The Anti Aging/Wrinkle moisturizer. The closest replacement I can find is Brickel Revitalizing Anti Aging Cream
So it's not your old wrinkle cream, but it's not bad.
mrBOstoN from undisclosed
I don't really understand all the negative comments. I like this cream. I wear it at night after washing my face along with the age defender eye cream. I will agree with others and say that I wake up and my face is SHINY. However I'm happy with the result. I'm not sure why Kiehl's says this is for either day or night—I would imagine I'd be super greasy looking come mid-morning. Hence my use as a night cream.
Anyway—good product, but I'd recommend as a night cream. Use the facial fuel moisturizer for day.
So it?s not your old wrinkle cream, but it?s not bad.

Keep Eliminating good products
Gsquared from undisclosed
Why did you get rid of the other anti-wrinklier cream? Loyal customer for a long time but why do you guys keep messing with good products?? The facial fuel moisturizer is terrible now and this new anti aging one isn?t as good as the old anti wrinkle cream. I don?t get it...
Good but not for oily and combination skins
Caglar from undisclosed
This cream is not that bad. I think it`s good for dry skin. If your skin is oily and comination, you can use it for the nighttime. I prefer to use the creams with matte finish for the daytime. Actually i missed Facial Fuel Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Facial Fuel Transformer Age Correcting Moisture Gel. Kiehl`s should listen to their customers and bring back these creams. Matte finish is very important for the men because they do not wear make-up. Thanks.
atlwizard from Atlanta, GA, USA
I've been using Kiehl's Age Defender moisturizer for a little over 4 years now. It's an AMAZING product. I recently got my partner to start using it with me. The consistency of this moisturizer is best for night time use since it's smooth and thick, but not greasy. It does what it's suppose to do and that is to hydrate your skin. Overtime, I've noticed better texture too. As with all products, it takes time! People are too quick to review after using it for a month or so.
AlohaMD from Washington DC
The product works for me very well. I too use less of this moisturizer than its predecessor. This is not to discount others' experience and preference. I also use the Ultra Facial Overnigjt Hydrating Masque once a week. My friends and family note the difference!
Timmy from Chicago, IL
Have been a Kiehl?s customer for years, and agree with the other reviewers, this is a poor replacement for Facial Fuel Anti Wrinkle Cream. I?ve gone through two jars and will now be looking for a replacement. Come on Kiehl?s listen to your customers, bring back the original
