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!
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.

I've used Kiehl's products for a while and I'm also surprised at how many people
Complain about Age Defender. You should only use a very very small amount on your skin. I use this with a base. I first apply either Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate in the morning and apply Age Defender on top. And Retinol Skin Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum in the evening with Age Defender on top. As a result I have had many people ask how my skin is so good for a man. I'm 42 but look around 28. It's amazing stuff.

Left skin feeling a little greasy. Doesn't absorb fast enough. The regular face cream is much nicer.

I never write product reviews, but I just went to repurchase my Age Defender moisturizer and was shocked by the low rating / negative reviews of the product. I feel compelled to share a review because my experience with this products has been amazing.
For context, I'm an avid skincare user - have been all my life - and I love this product. The scent, texture and results on my skin are superb. I've been using this product for the last 6 months and my skin has never looked better. My fine lines have been visibly reduced and my skin looks more youthful. At 38 years old, I'm consistently told by people that my skin looks great which I believe is an effect of this product.
Anyway, I know that every product is not for everyone, but I encourage you to try this product because it's legit. Good luck!

I started using the moisturizer after buying a set that included it and the eye cream. I really like it, and I came back today to buy a new jar since I'm near the end. I'm really surprised to see reviews complaining about texture and residue. Maybe people are applying too much? You do not need to apply very much to smooth it out across your skin. My skin is very soft and looks great. My skin is slightly oily on my face, a bit dry on my neck, and the cream works well across all of it. I'll wash my face in the shower, then apply the moisturizer about 10 minutes after I've finished showering. The routine works for me, I'm kind of curious how people with bad experiences are applying it.

I have used this moisturizer since May 2019 now and continue to love it. While it is a bit pricier than I would like, I think it is valuable. This moisturizer is great to apply at night before bed to let it work to moisturize and firm your skin overnight. It is a little heavier texture-wise, so you don't need to apply a lot to cover your face - it spreads easy. The smell and fragrance of this particular moisturizer is also great. I plan to continue with this product for a long time!

I'm not sure why people are leaving reviews saying this product is greasy or oily, I think it's far from either! I use this with the Age Defender Serum at night, and it works even better than advertised. It's not greasy, my skin soaks it up nicely, and it doesn't leave a shiny residue (I'd say it leaves a matte or otherwise flat sheen on your skin). A little bit goes a long way, that's why it's sold in a 2.5 ounce container! If you're on the fence about this product, don't be. I highly recommend!

Unfortunately l was told ulta is going to discontinue this product. I will have to buy it at another store

Left a review but it wasn't published, not sure why. I really like this and have seen great results overall. 10/10 would buy again.

I once forgot facial moisturizer on a trip and grabbed this from an airport khiels. I've been addicted. It's a luxurious cream and keeps skin fresh for the whole day even in the harsh winter.
BobInNW from Walla Walla, WA
Thrilled with the results since starting to use Age Defender Cream. It's not greasy, smells great, and most importantly my skin is hydrated all day after morning application. Plus it doesn't require much to do the job.

I've been using this for awhile and I get so many complements on my skin. I use the whole line and I definitely see results.
jjobin from FRISCO, texas
I'm in my late 50's and have tried my share of men's facial moisturizer. This product is the best!! I apply after my morning shower. Goes on easy and without that greasy felling. I see some of siblings every 6 months. Everyone they comment on how nice my skin looks. Other reviews complain about the cost. I'm okay with it because a jar last me almost an entire year and it's not greasy.
Beaubobread30 from West Sacramento, CA
Started using this (plus Age Defender serum and eye cream) about 6 weeks ago and can definitely tell a difference! My face is much brighter and smoother - I think I look younger! Even co-workers via video conference notice a difference and have commented how good I look! Definitely sticking with these products.

I like it alot ..I use it at night before bed and my face looks awesome by morning..love this stuff cheaper than murad

Okay, granted it doesn't smell like roses, but it's the only facial cream that I, and I've been told by others, can tell a positive difference IMMEDIATELY. I loooove it. It works almost like a toner, brightening my face, and over time I can tell a difference too (I have tried three other moisturizers — kiehls, Mario badescu, and le-pomme or whatever — and they don't work as well). Also, I wish it had sunscreen in it.
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.

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.
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.
