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 120 customers Great moisturizer
Chevi from Los Angeles
I bought this moisturizer for my husband (42 years old, Filipino descent) and he loves it. He had been using cetaphil for years, but the lotion wasn't doing the job anymore as he was getting older and drier. After a week of use, his skin looks glowy, healthy, and younger. It didn't just help with dryness but also the texture of his skin. He loves it and also likes that it doesn't make his skin greasy. Will def purchase again.
Looking much younger

I gotta say I'm not sure why some of the reviews are negative. I have found this product to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give my skin a better overall appearance. Granted some have mentioned that this moisturizer is greasy which may be accurate if you use a disproportionate amount. However I have found a little goes a long way and if used sparingly it will not leave your skin feeling greasy and absorbs quite well.
Bradley from NJ
Great product. Not greasy. Absorbs immediately. Have tried many and always come back to this.
Best product I have ever used on my face
Been there done that from Washington state
That's it, all I have to say. This is without doubt the best product I've ever used on my face. I don't understand the negative reviews. At 67 years old my skin looks better than it has in twenty years.
Bring back the old one please
PDBe from undisclosed
It seems that this has replaced the prior formulation and packaging (blue with grey cap), which was a superior product in every way. It would be great if that product could be available again.
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.
Cayman from undisclosed
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.
Not the best overnite...
AdamFL from undisclosed
Not the best overnite moisturizer. I had high hopes for it to Improve skin texture. I've noticed no changes my skin's appearance
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.
