Product Review: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser

When I heard the news that Kiehl’s were releasing a range of oil-free skin care tailored for those like me who suffer from grease-face, I nearly jumped for joy. I am a recent convert to the Kiehl’s brand, but I’ve loved every single product that I’ve tried so far. Enter the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser. I love almost everything about this product. I love the fact that this cleanser has seemingly helped to reduce the amount of oil being produced by my face during the day. I also love the fact that it’s kept my skin clear and has not caused me to break out (which often happens when I branch out and try a new cleanser). It is also gentle enough to cause no redness whatsoever after rinsing the cleanser from my face (another common cleanser faux-pas). What I don’t love? The way my skin feels when I initially wash the cleanser off of my face. It is a very strange sensation and I’m having a hard time thinking of a way to describe it. It feels almost like it’s been stripped of all of the oil in my skin, but not in a harsh way. Quite strange but not completely unpleasant, if that makes sense? (probably not, sorry). All in all I like this cleanser and would definitely repurchase in the future. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser retails for $26 AUD and is available for purchase from Kiehl’s Australia Online. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review).
