Rated 4.33 out of 5 stars
I received this complimentary set of products from Kiehl's in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Kiehl's!
I have always had issues with shine around my t-zone area on my face, so I was excited to try the Kiehl's "Stop The Shine" products. All of these products were practically scent free, which will be nice for those who are sensitive to smells. The face cleanser is so gentle and felt like heaven on my skin. Even though it is heavy, it does not leave any feeling of residue on your face. It's very refreshing and feels luxurious. The serum and face cream are both very light, absorb well and blend well together. There is no sticky residue at all. I found that after using these products together for a few days, that it did succeed in helping reduce the amount of shine that I had throughout the day. I usually have to apply powder a few times a day to get rid of the shine but found that I did not need to do this, which was great! As with all Kiehl's products that I have used, I found this to be of great quality and would definitely recommend!
I tried this product for over a week. I don't mind the face wash but the Step 2 and Step 3 products the gel in the dropper and the moisturizing gel feel oily. They are supposed to reduce shine and not be oily but I feel my face is more oily. I would not recommend the product especially for the retail price it's sold at

The Kiehl's Stop-The-Shine Starter Set is a skincare set that contains a facial cleanser, serum, and facial cream. The facial cleanser is gentle on the skin as the serum and facial cream is light and absorbs well. Within use of several days, I do notice there's less of a shine on my face.

I used this product for about 2 weeks and wow I can tell the difference. My face face had been kinda oily as of late but with this I have the matte look that I'm used to

So I started out using one product at a time because I was scared this would dry my face out. This method worked for me and I'm so obsessed with my skin. Finally achieved the matte makeup look I've been wanting without the oil coming back mid day

I haven't had a lot of time to use these products to see long term results, but from what I've experienced so far, I think I like it.

I gave this trio a good try for 3 weeks and I did see a slight reduction in shine on my face, but not much. I love the cleanser and serum, but the moisturizer was not moisturizing enough for my skin. The cleanser was nice and left my skin clean, but not dried out.

I very familiar with Kiehl's as I use the ultra facial oil free cleanser. I have never tried other products until now. For starters, I am very oily. I mean walking around blotting my face all day. I am not a makeup wearer. So there is nothing that really contributes to my oiliness except genetics. However, the Kiehl's Stop the Shine Starter Set has definitely helped your girl out. Am I still oily, yes. But not anywhere near as oily as I was without it. The face wash did break me out at first. But once my skin adjusted I didn't get another break out. The reason why I gave four star instead of five was because I wished they put the oil free face wash in the set. I will be definitely be adding the other to products to my routine.

Great set. I have found the niacinamide serum to not only control my break outs but also decrease the appearance of my pores. I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with acne. It does not dry my combination skin out either. This set also contains a travel size face wash which I always like to have around for on the go. I look forward to trying the moisturizer, but I prefer sunscreen protection in the corrective moisturizer.
Randall from Green Bay, WI
I have tried a few different lotions/moisturizers that I have really enjoyed from Kiehl's, so I was extremely eager to put the anti-shine kit to the test as summertime rolled around. I have always struggled with an extremely oily face, and during the warmer months I seem to experience non-stop acne breakouts. I have attempted other products for my issue and have so far been underwhelmed with the results. I have been left with dry, red, irritated skin that feels and looks worse than the acne itself. I can happily say the anti-shine kit has my face looking better than ever. My acne is at an all time low and it has completely boosted my confidence. Kiel's anti-shine kit will remain part of my daily routine going forward! I would highly recommend this product for anyone who experiences problems like me.
Tip from Florida
All the products in this kit are great.
You get a solid face wash to really make sure you have a clean and oil free base.
Next you get a great active that will help overtime combat oiliness.
Then you get a cooling oil fee light weight moisturizer to put some moisture into your skin for the day.
Combined they work well as a base for the day.
They work well with other products such as makeup and sunscreen.
When I used this kit in conjunction with my makeup products I was able to start the day oil free and I did not get extremely oily throughout the day as I usually do.
Eris from Portland OR
This little starter set (cleanser, serum, moisturizer) is a fantastic way to start your new Kiehl's journey. I have to say, it did what it was supposed to. It prevented me from sweating so much and kept the oil at bay. The cleanser is a slick, gel like consistency which felt and worked great. The serum has Niacinamide and worked wonders with keeping oil away. And the moisturizer was hydrating without being oily. A winning trio. I highly recommend this kit for oily skinned people's.

I need to try this when it's cooler in Florida. This heat has been disrespectful and I can't give an honest review.
Mayreviews from Miami, FL
I love this Kiehl's Stop-The-Shine Starter Set because it has the best face. Wash soap period the soap is very creamy. And it's very nice on your skin, and it makes a really nice ladder that makes your skin feel fresh. In soft and it does clean the pores. Very nice period compare to other soaps that I have tried. This is very thick, but it feels nice on your skin. And it doesn't feel like it's stripping.
The serum that I used in this kid feels very nice and it does not feel oily like other serums that I have tried. The serum is very light on your skin and does not feel oily at all period I place 3 drops on my face and then I rub it all over my face. I make sure that I have a nice clear coating on my face. And I wait for it to dry it does not take a long time to dry. I like the way it feels because it does not feel like I'm putting this thick substance on my face and it dust field natural. I feel that it does have good ingredients for your skin. And it feels really nice on my skin, and it makes me not oily period
Right after the serum, I place the nice jelly moisturizer period it is in a clear consistency does not feel heavy and it dries very quick period I really like the way it feels on my skin because I love moisturizers that work fast and that makes me. Have a nice routine that's easy to do. And that i'm able to do everyday. I really like that because I like things that feel good on my skin.
Overall, I love this kid because it's very simple to use. And it is a no-brainer type of skin care for your face period I really like the fact that it comes in 3 products that. You are able to use as a routine in the morning and at night. I use the 3 products in the morning and then I will place my sunscreen. Moisturizer on top and it feels amazing. I really like that my face feels less oily as the product was intended
I absolutely love these products and I'm definitely going to be buying these in the future. I love the high quality of these product.

This set is the perfect size for anyone that wants to try new products or for anyone that's traveling. The products are gentle on your skin. Using the facial cleanser, niacinamide serum and the gel cream together leaves your skin feeling fresh and moisturized without leaving your skin greasy or oily. I definitely noticed a reduction in oil on my face after using these products for a week. I also like that the products are fragrance free. It's a good starter set for anyone.
Amy from NY
I have oily acne prone skin. The cleanser was okay. Gentle and doesn't feel like it strips my face. The nicinamide serum would be good to supplement with other products. It helps lessen the oil on my face, but not for long enough. My favorite was the gel cream. It feels so light weight which helps it sink in better. It's also great because creams would be too heavy for my skin type.

Overall, I loved this kit and that it was specifically formulated for oily skin. This is especially beneficial for me with combo skin living in Florida. I loved that the products all worked well together to produce results, whereas sometimes when I use products with different purposes or active ingredients they tend to "cancel each other out". The one negative for me is that it felt like the products almost worked too well where my skin felt a little dry the day after, and i experienced some flakiness around my nose. I definitely wouldn't say it stripped my skin but it was a bit drier after using it twice daily for about a week. I think I would use this combo on days when I'm outside or working out a lot and I need to really refresh my skin, instead of using all 3 products every day.
The cleanser made my skin feel fresh, matte, and clean. I liked that it was a milky gel that emulsified nicely, but wasn't too thick. I only needed to use a pea sized amount to wash my face. The niacinamide was a new active ingredient for me. I know it needs to be used frequently to see anti- aging results, but I did feel like it applied nicely and wasn't oily on my skin. The moisturizer was a nice gel consistency as well, and dried down fairly quickly leaving a matte finish rather than a tacky or oily finish like some of my other moisturizers.

I'm no stranger to Kiehl's, I've been using their products for years so I was super excited to receive these in exchange for a review. The Ultra Facial Cleanser has always worked well for me and I love how clean my skin feels after. As with all of their products a little goes a long way. The star of the show is definitely the Niacinamide serum. I have oily skin and this does exactly what it says it does. My skin felt non greasy but also not dry or ashy. I will definitely continue to use this. The oil free gel cream was just ok in my opinion. As the last step i didnt feel as good after using that so the next few days I stopped after the serum. I will say that the gel cream made my skin feel very very smooth which I did like. Kiehls consistently creates great products!

I used this product for 2 weeks and has worked exactly how it says. the cleanser is so smooth and amazing
Doug from Pittsburgh, PA
My skin is typically oily. This product really cut back on the amount of oil my skin would produce each day. It did not leave my skin feeling too dry though. I would definitely recommend it to anybody with oily skin.
Taylor from Texas
I received this kit for free to try. And it is a great starter pack for someone who has oily skin. It comes with a facial cleanser, serum minute gel cream, and especially this time during the summer. The serum and gel cream are not too much on the skin so you don't get oily at all!
Cruze from SoCal
I'm so happy that I was able to try this product because it totally worked for me. I have combination skin that tends to get oiler in my t-zone as the day goes on. This kit actually helped reduce the oiliness drastically. The products go on smoothly, no pilling, and once applied did not feel oily nor sticky. Face feels clean and not stripped after cleansing. Overall my face felt properly prepped for my makeup.
Karly from Destin Florida
I've been using this starter kit for oily skin for about two weeks now it was sent to me ! For starters I live in Florida the weather here is always sticky and humid so my face tends to feel extra greasy 😭 my makeup usually starts to crack . I've been applying this before my makeup and made sure not to use any other products other than my primer which I apply after the moisturizer in this kit to make sure I was really testing it and it did not disappoint seriously guys as someone who always has to keep retouching my powder because I'm so oily this definitely got me through a whole day , now as the products them selfs I definitely love the fact that they don't have a scent to them they also don't feel sticky which drives me nuts with other products I've tried and even though this was sent to me I definitely would purchase again my favorite thing in this kit is the moisturizer so if you feel like you don't need all of it then definitely get at least the moisturizer!
Kettyr from Tx
This is my favorite skincare for this hot weather , It's hydrating in a non-greasy formula, perfect for oily or combination skin. I have been using the Kiehl's stop the shine starter set for over a week, I've noticed a difference in my skin and the shine already. I do use it every morning and night and when I wear makeup it makes glow helping me achieve a natural look . I Will definitely going to purchase more to keep in my daily routine , and of course I'm going to recommend to all my friends.The ingredients used are also non-irritating to the skin. Thank you bzzagent to give me the opportunity to try this amazing product
