I am a relative newbie to Kiehl’s skin care, and when I placed an order for my long lusted after Cucumber Herbal Alcohol Free Toner I decided to order the Ultra Facial Moisturizer to go along with it. I’ve never really settled on a day-to-day moisturizer. I do have a soft spot for Dermalogica ‘s Active Moist but I’m still not sure that it’s holy grail material for me. Now that I’ve been using it for a little while I think I can safely say that the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer is fast on it’s way to becoming my new favourite and is sitting on the precipice of grail’dom. I love it because it is lightweight and fragrance free, and leaves my skin feeling richly hydrated without being too heavy. It does take a little bit of time to sink into the skin, so I generally have to wait a minute or so before applying my makeup. I have sensitive skin that is prone to breaking out when I introduce a new product into my regime and as of yet the Kiehl’s Moisturizer hasn’t had an adverse affect on my skin, so I think that is a good sign. Also, as superficial as it is and has absolutely no relation to the quality of the product whatsoever, I really love the packaging and have always loved the Kiehl’s brand aesthetic. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer retails for $22 AUD and can be purchased online from the Kiehl’s Australian website.
