I used this in the winter, underneath my serum in the morning before applying makeup and I really like this moisturizer! I have oily combination skin that turned a bit dry in the winter, that's why I decided to pick up this formula. The texture is watery but rich at the same time however don't be fooled because this sinks in really fast especially underneath makeup. It makes my foundation go on really smoothly and in the winter it leaves my skin hydrated and overtime my skin produced less oil. I have also used this in springtime just as a moisturizer without any makeup when it's a no makeup day and I really like it as well. It doesn't make me breakout neither does it irritate my skin in any way. I'm going to try the ultra facial cream with spf because I need to wear spf especially in the summer when I'm travelling. I bought the big jar of this and haven't even finished it yet because you only need a really small amount because that goes a long way. I do think that any skin type will benefit from this moisturizer especially dry skin types and combination. Try it, you won't regret it!

This is an overall great product. Its is great for everyday use. I would use this day and night after cleanser & toner. Keeps me hydrated throughout the day.
I love how the product isn't sticky and its very comfortable on the skin.
However, at times when i'm going through particularly dry skin. i would mix in a facial oil to boost the moisture.
It has a creamy texture but it feels lightweight on the skin. When applied, it is absorbed quickyl but still have stickiness which i dont prefer. my skin do feel moisturised and hydrated throughout the day but my face get oily so fast. It does make my skin smoother and radiant which i was surprised because it didn't claimed to be a brightening product. Even thought I love how it make my skin smoother but its too rich for my oily skin. I do recommend this to dry skin or very dry skin.
The cream is white in color, very soft and fine texture, and does not really has any smell. I applied it for day and night. The moisture level is good enough for my dry skin. And you do not have to use a lot as the cream can spread quite a wide area on my face. However, this is a pure moisturizer which does not have extra benefits like firming or whitening.
A light-textured, daily hydrator that leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced. Anyone who wants skin that is smooth and healthy-looking.
Key benefits and ingredients:
Its unique combination of ingredients helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. Its formula contains Antarcticine, which helps hydrate skin and provide it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding it from the damaging effects of free radicals; imperata cylindrica, which contains a high concentration of potassium to provide an immediate and lasting hydration effect; and squalane, a signature Kiehl's ingredient that helps restore skin's natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.
How To Use:
Apply to a clean face, day or night as needed to combat moisture depletion.
