Most Helpful Positive Review The best a man could wish for..
The "pour homme" scent is the best scent Kiehls has ever made to this date.
They need to make an EDT version of this and they also need to bring the large pump body wash back in stock because I will buy them by the dozens.
It is very unique -- unlike anything else out there, very sensual, warm, earthy -- I can smell dried woods and incense and amber and also vetiver...this blend is AMAZING. Please do not discontinue the "pour homme" body wash, and please make the scent into an Eau De Toilette spray! People will buy it, trust me -- it is a masterpiece!!!!
Only downside (and this applies to all of Kiehl's bath / shampoo products) is it is not concentrated enough. There is too much water and not enough soap.
This is the only reason I'm taking one heart off for performance and value.
But whatever, I don't really care that much about such things...what I really care about is the scent...it's so wonderful!! And in the end, since Kiehl's products are not priced ridiculously high like some other brands, the concentration really doesn't matter.
Most Helpful Critical Review Rest in Peace, Kiehls
I have used this lotion for easily twenty years, in the Vanilla, Coconut, and Unscented fragrances. I think I used Cucumber for a while also. I used to have to wait for it to be in stock, since they made all the little batches by hand and would sell out constantly. Then the company got sold, and gone are all the small batches and vast array of fragrances - all the things that made Kiehl's special. It should be called "Kiehl's-from 1851-until-shortly-after-date-company-sold." I bought about thirty bottles of lotion when they were getting rid of my favorites, but at some point I will run out and have to find a new company. Everything Kiehl's makes now smells like argon etc., and is not going to work. So sad...

SO disappointed that Kiehl's changed the Coriander scent! I purchased this for decades (they used to have candles and oil as well), and thought they shipped me the wrong product. This was one of the most unique scents in the industry, and now it just smells like any average, flowery shower gel that I would never buy. Please bring back the old scent!!!
A Man Who Uses This
DavidinBellevue from Seattle
After reading the reviews, I thought I should say something. It may appear thin and doesn't foam, but I find a squirt or two goes much farther than cheap men's body washes, which are thicker and can be foamy. Also, the fresh smell is unisex and lasts a good 24 hours. It's expensive but it lasts a long time.
Too much scent
Bsmol from Litchfield. Ct
It's the same Kiehl's quality but way too much scent. I miss your Creme de Corps Light-Weight Body Lotion! Please consider bringing it back.
Please bring back gardenia!
MollyMc from Slc, UT
I beg of you. I?ve waited nearly a decade and don?t understand why it was discontinued. I used the last bottle I had caring for my grandmother while she was in hospice because it was her favorite scent. I miss it and am begging!
PatT from Dallas,TX
I have used Kiehl's products for years and am very happy with the scent of this body cleanser. It's like a wake me up in a bottle.
Pablito from Olympia, Washington
I absolutely love this product! I?ve been using it for 17 years now and wouldn?t dream of using anything else!The scent is delicate and it moisturizes well, so good! Highly recommend
best body wash
Brittany from California
Has a light scent and leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and not dried out. My sensitive skin doesn't veto when using it. Absolutely will buy again.
Great every day body wash
jman from Rochester, Mi
I like these well enough o keep using them. I?ve tried I think every scent, and my favorite is the pour homme. I don?t care for super masculine scents, and this takes a nice approach to it. It?s a nice mix between fresh clean, and masculine. To the point that women could use it, and I do t think anyone would think they had necessarily used a ?manly? scent. Also, don?t let the small bottles intimidate you; a little goes a long way. The other scents are all pretty obvious, and none of them are overpowering at all.
Nicky from Virginia
I've been urging this soap for years, and it's always made my skin feel so smooth, energized and clean. It doesn't leave any residue, dry-out or inflammation, which is great for my sensitive skin. Definitely would recommend!
Nice texture, but not really deluxe
SCR93 from CA
I love the Grapefruit scent, it's not overpowering, but smells nice. Scent doesn't linger, though. I have very dry skin and 7 hours later my skin looks dry again. Maybe I don't put enough on right after my shower? I don't want to use too much as it's very expensive! I don't see how the lotion is "deluxe". Overall, though, it's a nice body lotion that might need to be reapplied or slathered on.
Why no large size?
tedman from Philadelphia, PA, USA
Product is amazing, smell is on point. This would be my go to product but it is not cost effective to keep buying the small bottle.
Why no large size of Pour Homme??
markhendersonthompson from Lexington, KY
I absolutely love this product, but am bewildered that it is not offered in the jumbo pump size. Is this a bias against men's products? I have to buy two or three at once and it's not cost-effective to do this. please offer the large size. otherwise, men, this is the best shower gel. the scent is intoxicating.
BAD BAD BAD BAD
xxxxxxxx from undisclosed
FIRST OFF, THE PRICES ARE BAD. ALL OF THEM. That said, it doesn't work. It doesn't fix damaged dry skin. Just an average lotion for your hands NOT your body.
TAKE THAT OFF THE LABEL.
LifeLover from Georgia, USA
I've been using this lotion now for 2 years, and I am in love with it. The "grapefruit" fragrance is my favorite, and it's a light refreshing fragrance that men will enjoy as well. To me the lotion keeps moisture in for a long time. My only comment/suggestion would be to please make this available again in the larger 500ml bottle with the pump. This makes application so much easier.
Best Body Wash

Subtle yet refreshing. A family favorite.
Used this for years
Tomgsc from Santa Cruz CA
I love this body cleanser. Even in hard water it lathers up. And the fragrance is the best! I don?t know why you?re not making anything else with the pour homme fragrance. I used to use the body cream, and would still be using it, if it was available. I have a tiny vial of pour homme oil that I?ve hoarded for years now. I only use it for special occasions. But why did you stop?
The bubbles are missing!
CanadianDana from Michigan
For the price, I was expecting a very lux body wash. What I got instead was a very thin product that did not lather up like most body washes do. It was disappointing. The smell in the bottle is nice, light and fresh. Perfect for a morning shower, but the smell did not transfer to my skin like I'd hoped it would.
I have loved every one of my Kiehl's products, but this one is not my favorite.
What happened to the lotion?
RRog from undisclosed
This is a great product but second to the lotion. Why did they stop making it? Can you find it anywhere?
Yesssplease from LA, CA
I love love love the coriander scented body wash! It is lightly scented, NOT overbearing and is increadibly refreshing - that alone makes me feel pampered. The consistency isn't thick, which I really like because I dislike when a wash won't rinse off and makes my skin dry. Thank you Kiehl's for a excellent product!
Belladonna from Roosevelt, NY
This shower cleanser makes bathing a delightful ritual. I can't wait to take a shower and I'll even switch between hot and cold water. When the water changes from warm to cold, it feels like a true treat for the body. Since i started using the coriander cleanser at night and the grapefruit in the morning, I've noticed a smoother texture in my skin, and I was quite pleased with the smoothness of my upper back as well. I'm definitely ordering the liter pumps for the fall!
Best Sample, I want more!
Macci from Burnsville, MN
We had a wonderful anniversary holiday in Duluth MN, my hands were alittle dry, and in our awesome room, were these beautiful smelling samples of hand lotion and other products. I tried the lotion immediately. My husband liked the smell and I tried the lotion on him, he loved it too. I am getting the regular size, because it works beautifully in both if us.
Bring back other scents!!!
Kellz111 from Columbus, Ohio
I was given a bottle each of the rose and grapefruit cleanser and the respective lotions 20 years ago and miss the rose scent desperately. Please please please bring back the old scents.
queenofthenight from undisclosed
Coriander? This lotion really has no discernable scent to me. Musk is distinctly manly. Lavender is pedestrian, and I don't like grapefruit. Coriander should be called unscented or just have an unscented lotion. What was so terrible about vanilla and cedarwood? I would think both men and women would like that one. Please......do something with your scents. I haven't bought any since you made these changes.
Bring Back Other Scents?
nford from Portland, OR
I really miss the variety of the scented lotions. Three now just doesn't cut it for me. I'm personally not a fan of coriander or grapefruit. The Lavender is nice, but it's so predictable and boring to me. Love the product as a whole but would like difference scents.
And how about other sizes again?
nford from Portland, OR
Where's the scent?
Basically just basic body wash for a luxury price - nothing special.
I do like the liter size though.
