Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely December and are getting excited for Christmas, once I break up from university tomorrow I will definitely be in the Christmas mood! I've said this before and I'll say it again but I am far too lazy when it comes to skincare, and I've finally become fed up of being jealous of other people's nice skin and decided to do something about it! I've wanted to try Kiehl's for so long but obviously it isn't the cheapest brand out there and it always put me off, plus I never really knew what to try first. On Black Friday Debenhams had discounts on their beauty range and I decided to just bite the bullet and try something, and since my skin is so dry and it is even worse now that it's so cold I decided to buy the Ultra Facial Cream.


I decided to buy the smaller 50ml size just to make sure that I actually liked it, I had really high expectations actually when I bought this because I'd heard so many good things and also for the price it had better be good!

"Inspired by our original beloved Ultra Facial Moisturiser, this 24 hour, light-textured daily hydrator leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced, particularly in harsh weather conditions. Our formula is made with Antarcticine - a Glycoprotein extracted from microorganisms sourced from sea glaciers and notable for an ability to protect skin from cold temperatures - as well as Imperata Cylindrica, a plant indigenous to the Australian desert which possesses superb water retention properties in dry conditions"

I am absolutely in love with this product, I'm so happy that it lived up to expectations! I used it as a night cream after I'd used all my other products and my skin instantly felt so much more moisturised and when I woke up it will still so soft and felt so much springier and healthier. Also it has a slight scent but nothing over powering, however I love the smell it smells really fresh and clean.



I think that some people may be put off by the fact that it is a cream as they can be quite heavy and leave you feeling a bit greasy, however it's surprisingly light. Not light enough for a day cream in my opinion but you can wear it so comfortably on a night and it doesn't feel overly heavy on the skin. I don't know how well people with oily skin would like this, maybe something a bit lighter would work for them but I think if you have normal or dry skin you will absolutely love this! I noticed a difference to my skin overnight and I can't wait to see how my skin improves over time using this. Obviously it isn't cheap at £24 for the 50ml and £43.50 for the 125ml but it really won't disappoint and if you suffer from dry skin especially at this time of year I would definitely say it's worth the money. I really want to try the Creamy Avocado Eye treatment next as I have fallen in love with this brand. Let me know in the comments if you've tried any Kiehl's products and what you'd recommend!
