So I just got to the bottom of my jar that I have had for about 3 months. A little bit of this product goes a super long way. So, I loved this moisturizer. My skin is probably as sensitive as it gets (Cetaphil made me breakout) and this didn't irritate my skin at all. Keeps my skin supple all day long, which is what I need in harsh Michigan winters. However, I'm not sure I would recommend for oily skin during any season other than winter. When I apply this it does sort of feel like I'm putting on a mask. So, if I want to put just some mascara and my eyebrows on, I have to use another moisturizer. This one requires some kind of powder so you don't look like a grease ball, that's why I would recommend as a night moisturizer. Overall, a fantastic moisturizer if you need some serious moisture for the harsh winter weather, or even just have super dry skin in need of something extreme.
Most Helpful Critical Review Caused Redness and Burning
I bought this product about 3 months ago and used it inconsistently, I assumed the redness and hurting on my face was sunburn from a trip to Florida and time outside running to train for a 10mi race, which is why I added a moisturizer to use with my spf to begin with. I splurged on holiday sales (and stopped running) and decided to experiment with concealers/foundation. Something burned around the tops of my cheekbones surrounding my eye. I systematically eliminated and then combined products, and took pictures in between products to pinpoint the source of the redness. It seems my reaction to this is somewhat inconsistent and it reacts differently with different products, essentially sometimes it turns my entire face RED minus my forehead, sometimes there are legit chemical burns that took a full week to heal. My skin is somewhat sensitive and will break out if I use heavy moisturizers, the medium dry Dermalogica and the corresponding face wash made my nose flaky and dry and also red. Bottom line: If I wash my face with just water, and use this moisturizer, my face hurts, is warm to the touch, and gets redder. I cannot believe I just assumed I was sunburned.

This is a tall drink of water for your skin. I love it! Finally, something that moisturizes and soothes dry skin. As soon as I put it on I feel relief. Thank you Kiel's!
My ultimate fav!
JodiG from Pittsburgh, PA
I bought this product after I saw a recommendation in a beauty article in Vogue. This product is incredible- creamy, yet it absorbs quickly and completely; I do not perceive a lingering scent. Regardless of new products I have tried, I keep returning to this one!

I usually only trust my dermalogica moisturizer to be lightweight and not make my skin break out. Got this in a travel size, definitely buying a larger jar soon. Little goes a long ways!
One of my favorite moisturizers
Jenna from Rural CT
I've tried so many moisturizers. I keep coming back to this one. It keeps my dry skin healthy, clear, and glowing. I will continue to repurchase

It definitely helped hydrate my skin, but it caused me to continually breakout. I gave it a try for 5 weeks to see if my skin would adjust, but the breakouts never stopped.

I've been using this cream for a month or two now, and my skin absolutely loves it! I actually like to use TO's rosehip seed oil alongside with it in my nighttime skincare routine
Danielle from Nebraska
Super dry skin here. My skin did absorb this. It still was very dry but also felt greasy? Super weird.

I absolutely love this product, so does my skin. Definitely repurchasing this!
I was surprised with this
Emily from Pennsylvania
For some reason Kiehls gets a lot of hate in the skin care profession world. So I never tried it because I was always steered away. But so far I love all the Keihls products I've tried.
This cream has become a staple in my skincare routine.
The consistency is perfect. It's lightweight but very hydrating and feels nice on the skin.
good for dry skin

my new fav.
zule from West Richland
I received a sample and I love it! it's not too thick that it leaves the skin oily or too watery that it feels sticky it's perfect and lightweight. I wear it overnight and my face feels baby soft. It's the first cream that doesn't make my nose creases sting. I will definitely purchase this!
Very nice product, it seems very gentle with my skin.

Very nice product, it seems very gentle with my skin.
the face cream for face cream haters!
Emmy from Indy
Loveeee love love! Ive always hated creams/lotions for my face but now I look forward this part of my daily skincare regimen. This cream is just perfect!!! Its light yet creamy. For the first time I found a cream that doesn't leave my skin oily or feel heavy and thick and then leaves a layer of residue. Its feels light on but not water-like to where it absorbs and 30 mn later my skins dry again. I can feel a huge difference in my skin after just one week. It stays plump & hydrated all day but still feels like its breathing and its never. looked better.
Love love love!

I had been using Its Confidence cream but the price went up and I go through a jar so quickly. I decided to venture out and try this since you get a large amount for the price and I'm so happy I did! I absolutely love this moisturizer. I don't have to use nearly as much as I was with my previous cream, so I know this is gonna last me for quite a while. It feels more like a lotion in consistency, it's a bit thinner than a true cream, but it goes on so smoothly and sinks in without leaving a greasy film. My skin stays hydrated from the time I put it on until the next morning! The Confidence cream never kept my skin this hydrated. I have zero issues with dry skin patches or flaking or getting a little dry in the afternoon. Hopefully it holds up as the winter months come and the dry air is here, but so far im hooked on this.

I never in a million years thought I'd be willing to spend this much on a face lotion but a friend recommended it to me and oh my this is a game changer. I live in Nevada where dry skin is basically a birth right. I use this twice a day and my skin has never felt better or more moisturized. I feel like I should share with my bf because his face is always so dry but this stuff is like gold.
Does the job and feels AMAZING!
Jenn from North Carolina
This stuff is so hydrating and feels silky smooth. I am on a ton of products for my acne that really tends to dry my skin out - I also have very sensitive skin and this stuff has been a life saver for my face. I use it every night before bed. Love it!!!

It is creamy and lightweigt. It caused me pimples though and it is a bit pricey even for the smallest size that is not even a full oz. I might try a First Aid Beauty next.
Worth every penny
Steph from Juniata, NE
I was hesitant to buy it because it is one of the more expensive face creams I've ever purchased but it quickly proved to be worth every penny. I absolutely love this face cream. You don't need much and it's super effective, it easily moisturizes my dry flaky patches and doesn't burn or sting like some others do. It absorbs well and doesn't turn me into a grease ball even overnight it controls my natural sebum so well I don't need to wash my face in the morning.
Will buy again

Bought for my dry spots on my face. Was great. My face is so smooth.....
FINALLY! Something that works for my sensitive rosacea skin!
Sarah from Arizona
About 10 years ago, my skin was so oily, I was dabbing it with napkins to get rid of it. Not sure why it became so dry, but I spent the last several years searching for a good facial moisturizer. I tried Aveda, Vanicream, Seba Med, First Aid Beauty, Clinique, and numerous others, but they were either not moisturizing enough, too thick (like a Bath and Body works body cream lotion), or they left a weird cakey feeling film on my face. Kiehl's is rather thin, and I don't have to use half the jar to moisturize my face. It makes me feel like I have semi-oily skin again, lasts all day, and doesn't aggravate my rosacea skin. I've seen reviewers stating this is too thick or greasy, but they may not have had the experience of growing up with super oily skin to make an accurate comparison. I absolutely love this face cream and am so happy to have finally found something that works for me. Especially in a state as dry as Arizona.
My New Favorite
Lara Lou from IL
This moisturizer is perfect if you have dry sensitive skin. I have the one with and without SPF. I use the SPF one during the day and the one without at night. I can wear makeup (tinted moisturizer, foundation, and or powder) without issue. When worn alone is does make my face a little shiny but I don't mind that. It also has a nice light scent.
Vidhi from Sevierville, TN
Omg, where have you been ALL my life?! I've super duper dry and sensitive skin, and this moisturizer just absorbs it like my skin has been dying of thirst. I purchased 1.7 oz, I knew I was going to like it because it's fragrance-free and doesn't contain any harsh ingredients, but I wanted to test it out to how my skin would react on it. My skin LOVED this product, it's feels super lightweight, but also really hydrated, sits well under makeup and doesn't crease any weird creasing or doesn't feel "heavy." On most days, I just this with little concealer and little powder, good to go. I've even mixed this with little foundation to create bb cream and it works flawlessly. I love this so much. Can you tell? Haha. The only downside is, that it is expensive, but everything else is great!
