Most Helpful Positive Review Finally!
I have oily but dehydrated skin and have always found products that target oily skin to be a little over drying. I have faithfully used Kiehl's products for over 5 years and have loved all of them, but I've been waiting for a collection that targets dehydrated skin without adding oil, or oily skin without over drying. I'm so happy this collection is finally here!
I bought both the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser and Toner, and after using them for only 3 days now, I can already see an improvement in my skin. This new collection really cleans your skin without any drying effects. In fact, it actually locks moisture in! After only 3 days, my skin feels much softer and I've noticed that my skin is much less oily.
I highly recommend the new Ultra Facial Oil-Free product line to anyone with oily, dehydrated skin. I'm sure other skin types would benefit as well.
Thank you Kiehl's for this wonderful product line!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as good as the usual Ultra Facial Cleanser
I didn't like this product as much as I like the 'original recipe'. After washing my face with the product it feels as if there is a residue left behind. Don't get me wrong it might be great for really 'oily' skins but it doesn't work as well for my normal to oily skin. It also doesn't feel like it 'deep cleans' like the original product either.
Reviewed by 101 customers Good, but not my favorite.
jelli from tyler, TX
pros: no scent, a little goes a long way, & my face feels very soft the next day.
cons: kind of hard to wash off, makes my face feel tight/stripped, and it doesn't wash away everything.
i would recommend double cleansing, followed by a good moisturizer.
My Favorite Face Wash
liz1 from Greenville, SC
I've been using this face wash for a year now and i can safely say its the best one I've used. I've struggled with really oily skin, especially in my T zone, for a long time and since using this I've no longer needed to use powder to matte my face. My skin is SO soft and the cleanser is super gentle on the skin; it feels amazing. I get compliments on my skin a lot.

•very oily skin in summer
•nothing else is working
After constantly switching cleansers because nothing combated my breakouts, I was determined to find the "perfect" cleanser for my skin. I have tried everything from luxury to drug store cleansers: Kate Somerville, Dermalogica, Murad, Cetaphil, Mario Badescu, and Clean and Clear. Nothing worked as good as Kiehls cleanser. I have combination skin that is very oily in the summer and dry patches in the winter. The cleanser can feel like it is stripping your skin but if you have large pores, blackheads, and hormonal breakouts, it is worth it to combat the issues. My pores feel "cleaned" out. I have been using it for 4 weeks and my skin became more clear every day I used it. I no longer have weekly breakouts. I follow the cleanser with Clinique moisturizer and I only use the cleanser once a day. I recommend this product if you have any of the following issues listed above.
Best facial cleanser for oily face
Edison Zhong from Edison, NJ
Finally find a great facial cleanser product! Everyone with oily face should tries this!
JDot45 from Sacramento, CA
I bought this product after trying the Calendula Gel Deep Cleanser. I started breaking out and experiencing some adult acne (ugh) and the Calendula cleanser didn't seem to clean deep enough in order to prevent breakouts. This product leaves my skin feeling cleaner without completely stripping it and my breakouts have become less. It can be a bit harsh to use twice daily, depending on your skin type and your exposure in the environment. Sometimes I will alternate between this and the Calendula product if I don't need a super deep cleanse.
Great daily cleanser for sensitive/acne prone skin
Serge from Miami, FL
I tried some samples of this after buying another Khiel's product and thought it was great! It is an oil free cleanser that works well with acne prone skin as well as sensitive skin. It did not make me break out at all. It is unscented, and makes a very rich and foamy lather that is compatible for cleansing with a foreo luna, or any other silicone brush. Rinses off to a very squeaky clean. This stuff works well. Would recommend and will probably buy a full size one.
A little goes so far
cmk95 from undisclosed
I use this as first step of my double cleanse at night. I love how little I can use and how much foam still comes from it. this product will last me very long. it cleanses but doesn't make my face feel dry at all.
Best daily face wash
AnthonySanDiego from San Diego, CA
This is the best. I have oily skin and large pores but this helps with both of those problems. I've tried hundreds of face washes and nothing compares to this. It almost feels like you exfoliated but without the harsh feeling.
Best Cleanser Ever!
Alizeh13 from London, UK
I have always had oily skin, especially around the T-zone area. This cleanser saved my life and significantly reduced the oily look on my face. It is also a very clean product & has no artificial fragrances or harmful ingredients. Works super well for sensitive skin and does not dry the skin out either. LOVE THIS!
Great for sensitive skin
Tammy056 from Virginia
A neighbor recommeded this product when the prior product I used was discontinued by a different company. I was a bit skeptical because I have sensitive skin that can breakout from products. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free cleanser works exceptionally well. It cleans my face with no residue and it doesn't dry my skin out. My face looks smooth and healthy. I'm online to reorder now. Thought I'd leave a review for anyone with sensitive skin who wonders if this product may work for them.
So far So Good
richdatdude from Louisiana
I like how well this cleanser lathers. A little goes a long way with this one. It help clear those tiny bumps you often get in your T-zone. My skin looks & feels clean after about 2 weeks of use.
Renne from Chicago, IL, USA
I love this face wash. It goes on smooth, and it leaves my super-oily skin feeling firm and not slick at all when I get out of the shower.
Rose from Ohio
This is about my favorite cleanser. It makes your face feel really clean without drying it. I love using this product.
Been using for 5 years
StephRUs from New Mexico
I loveeee this cleanser! I have semi-oily skin so it cleanses it just enough without stripping me of my oils I need to stay hydrated. It goes such a long ways too, one bottle lasts me months. I love that it has no scent, fragrance always breaks me out. It cuts right through my makeup and leaves my skin very clean. I use it morning and night. Oh and it foams up to such a great lather. I can't imagine ever using another cleanser again.
Keihls does it again
Saraf from Jacksonville, Florida
I love this I have combo skin and I use with my Clarisonic
DMMOM from Los Angeles, CA
After a many-year search, I finally discovered this non-paraben, wonderful facial cleanser. Have used it for two years and love it. Consistency is great, even in the shower, and my face feels really clean after using. Really clean, but soft and not at all sticky, dry, oily, or irritated. Please don?t ever stop making this!!
Finally a solution!!
AlGal from Dallas TX
I had annoying white bumps on my nose forever. With really sensitive skin, most oil free face washes were too harsh for me and made my skin horribly red and irritated. This is the ONLY product after many many tries that has helped! You use such a minimal amount of product, so this has seriously lasted me for so long. Completely worth every penny!!!
Great for oily skin type
Dev from Tampa
This cleanser is amazing for normal to oily skin type. So for the 1 star below, know your skin type! This is not for sensitive or dry skin. Amazing product, only need a pea size amount so this size lasted me an entire year using twice a day. That is very rare to find.
Oil free great cleanser
VickiD from Boca Raton
Only need a tiny bit for a nice clean oil free face
Perfect for Oily/Sensitive Skin
AndriaRose19 from New Zealand
I really love how this cleanser helps reduce the amount of oiliness on my skin. I also love how it?s not too harsh for my sensitive skin and doesn?t irritate my skin like most other cleansers do. This is probably the best cleanser I?ve used for my sensitive/oily prone skin. 100% recommend.
Awesome but need a travel size
emkent102 from undisclosed
I love this stuff! It is so gentle, effective, non-drying and lasts forever. It doesn?t break me out or make me feel super dry. I only wish it came in a travel size. PLEASE MAKE A TRAVEL SIZE!
Andi from KC
I also received this product as a sample and have now purchased the full size. Small amount needed to lather whole face and I can use it to take my makeup off as well. I have a lot of trouble finding facial products because of my acne prone, red, oily skin and I also struggle with psoriasis. This cleanser is one of the only products I've found to clean my face well, not cause a breakout, and also not add to my redness. It is great.
RaqGomez from Hesperia, CA
Omg, I simply love, love, love this product. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth every single time I use it. I don?t feel the cakes on oil that I would always feel before. It?s a miracle in a bottle!!!
This SUCKS. My skin is even worse than before I started use.
Jam from England
Never use this people, burns your skin, gives you plenty of rashes so don't use for sensitive skin
Best cleanser ever
Clair from League City Texas
I received this cleanser in one of my monthly box. It is amazing. You use about a pea size amount and it just grows and grows. It truly saves you so much money because it last so long. It goes on super creamy but rinses off super clean feeling. Trust me it is worth every cent. Run don't walk to purchase. My daughter and her husband use it to. I accidentally left my tube at their house after a visit and they fell in love with it they purchased it too.
