You guys know I love the opportunity to try new moisturizers! So when Kiehl’s sent me over their Ultra Facial Moisturizer for review I was super stoked. This is touted as being a great all day moisturizer that uses squalene to hydrate and can be used on all skin types. Each 1 ounce tub is $22.
This product is free of parabens as well as fragrances which I personally like. You can also opt to buy it in different sizes. There’s a 1 ounce, 1.7 ounce, 4.2 ounce and 5.9 ounce tub all available for purchase on the Kiehl’s site. This cream is lightweight and ideal for all skin types. I was excited because it’s appropriate for dry skin (which is just what I have).
Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane
Apricot Kernal Oil
Rice Bran Oil
Olive Fruit Oil
Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer
Sweet Almond Oil
Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract
As far as usage. The instructions direct you to use this after cleansing and toning, using a dime sized amount. This can be used both day and night. I think for most people this cream would be great for both a day and night cream however for myself I wouldn’t use this as my only nighttime moisturizer. This really is lightweight but very nice. I love the way it lays on the skin and it has no smell which I also really appreciate. All in all I would highly recommend this as a day cream for people with dry skin and a day and night cream for people with normal to oily skin.

Great Day Cream
I personally found this cream to work wonderfully as a day cream for myself. I love that the ingredients included Squalene.
