I am always on a lookout for good skincare products. This time, I wanted to invest in a good moisturizer, I was confused between Clinique moisture surge and kiehl’s ultra facial oil free gel cream. At the end, I chose the latter and here I am, ready with the review.

My experience with Kiehl’s ultra facial oil free gel cream
Packaging: The cream comes in a cute plastic tub form and its quite light-weight. The tub is little unhygienic to use but I don’t have much issues with it. It is travel-friendly and can easily fit into makeup pouches/bags.
Fragrance: The moisturizer is colorless and unscented. But it has a weird smell to it which goes away post application
Consistency: The cream is runny and slippery in consistency and is very light-weight.it spreads easily onto skin and gets absorbed by the skin in no time. it doesn’t leave behind any residue or sticky feeling. the skin feels smooth and soft. I don’t have oily skin but I don’t like heavy moisturizers on my skin so this gel cream works like magic and feels like a burst of water on the skin.
Efficacy: The cream works fine with my dry skin. It provides enough hydration for the day and I don’t feel the need to reapply it during the day. It conditions the skin and is non-greasy. I love such gel based creams because they are fast-absorbent and does the job well. I use it daily day and night and my skin feels supple and plump. It hasn’t caused any breakouts so its a big yay!! but anyone who is sensitive to alcohol ingredient might have to be little cautious as it contains alcohol as one of the ingredient.
Pros of the Kiehl’s ultra facial gel cream

- feels like water
- provides good hydration
Cons of the kiehl’s ultra facial gel cream

will ‘theblushcorner’ recommend it?
Anyone with oily skin, who cannot use heavy duty moisturizers but want to keep their skin hydrated can definitely try this cream. It simply hydrates and conditions the skin without transforming the skin. Even the dry skinned beauties can use this.
