I recently mentioned in my February favourites post that the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream had fast become a favourite of mine since purchasing it at the start of February. When I asked for some skincare recommendations on Twitter so many girls responded by saying the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream, so off I went to purchase it from Selfridge's. There was a lovely skincare assistant who advised me to try the oil free version as it is much less likely to clog my pores - winner! I definitely do not need anything clogging my pores as that is the main cause of my acne.
So, to put it in a nutshell I really like this. The texture is a light gel which I now realise I much prefer to a cream. The consistency of the cream moisturises in really well and after application to the face it feels cool as it contains cucumber and instantly smooths out of my skin. My nose and chin are the areas of my face which have been the driest recently, and I notice the most change in my skin in both of these areas. I have used this every morning since I purchased it, and it has fast become part of my everyday skin routine. This is a non-greasy formula, which targets both normal and oily skin types.
In the past I have not actually bought that much high end skincare as I am never sure how my skin will react. I have wanted to try Kiehl's skincare for years, and this has definitely been a great introduction for me. This was not cheap it was £24 for the 50ml jar, and I do add 2-3 fingertips of this to my skin each morning. I do however think they will last me a few months. All in all, if you are wanting a new moisturiser to add hydration and even out the texture of your skin as a base before you makeup application I would highly recommend giving this a go.
