Skin Care Reviews

09.28.18 AD DISCLOSURE

If you have ever walked into a Kiehl’s shop, a few things may have caught your eye in addition to the neat rows of clinical looking products. Every Kiehl’s boutique has a motorcycle as well as a resident skeleton, and the white-coat wearing staffers are more than happy to give you generous amounts of samples. Here’s a closer look at the origins of this popular brand, Kiehl’s skincare products, and is it right for you?

What Is Kiehl’s?

Kiehl’s started as an apothecary in 1851, with a location on Third Avenue and 13th Street in New York – that location is still the company’s flagship store. Irving Morse, owner John Kiehl’s apprentice, is credited with expanding what the pharmacy sold to include teas, herbs and Kiehl’s branded products, such as Original Musk Oil. Over the years Kiehl’s became known for its “try before you buy” motto and for listing its ingredients on the products, which was considered unusual at the time. Irving’s son, Aaron Morse, took the company in a new direction by creating products such as Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, Blue Astringent Lotion, Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1, and Ultra Facial Moisturizers, which are all still sold today. The company grew by word of mouth as it has never advertised, and Kiehl’s made headlines for sponsoring the 1988 Mount Everest Expedition, where the climbers took several Kiehl’s products along on their journey. In 2000, Kiehl’s was sold to L’Oreal, which also owns Lancôme, Maybelline and Urban Decay.

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2019?

Today there are over 250 Kiehl’s stores worldwide. And yes, in addition to those text-heavy labels on the products, there is a motorcycle in every single Kiehl’s store thanks to Aaron Morse, who dispersed his personal collection of motorcycles among all the company’s stores. And the skeleton? That was Morse’s idea too, who decorated the New York flagship with books on biology as well as a skeleton to engage customer’s curiosity.

What Does Kiehl’s Sell?

Kiehl’s has an extensive collection of face and body products, including Kiehl’s moisturizers, masks, face wash, serums and eye creams. The company also has specific lines for babies and men, and sells fragrance. Here’s a closer look.

What Ingredients Are in Kiehl’s Products?

Kiehl’s products are formulated with plenty of botanical extracts, and the company says that 95% of its formulas contain at least one natural or natural origin raw material. Ingredients include jasmonic acid, which is secreted by plants and thought to help reduce wrinkles; beech tree extract, thought to improve skin’s firmness, the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E and turmeric; as well as coconut oil and cocoa butter. Many Kiehl’s products contain commonly used skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and caffeine, a stimulant that helps reduce puffiness around the eyes.

Is Kiehl’s Cruelty Free?

Kiehl’s is owned by L’Oréal, and according to the company, L’Oréal “does not test any of its products or any of its ingredients on animals and has been at the forefront of alternative methods for over 30 years.”

Where Can I Buy Kiehl’s Products?

Kiehl’s products are sold at its stand alone stores, as well as department stores including Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Barneys, Macy’s and Nordstrom. It is also sold at Sephora and online at Walmart.

How Much Do Kiehl’s Products Cost?

Kiehl’s products are priced at a mid range level that are more expensive than drugstore products but would not be the priciest at a department store. The Ultra Facial Cream sells for $30, and Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner is priced at $21. The Amino Acid Shampoo is $20, and Nurturing Baby Cream is $19. Lip Balm #1 retails for $9.50. One of the most expensive products is the Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate, at $78.

Do Kiehl’s Products Work?

When trying to decide if a product works, it’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s skin may react differently to the same product. One cream that leaves a person with glowing, refreshed looking skin may cause breakouts in another person, or do nothing at all, so a little trial and error is always needed when finding the right products for yourself.

That said, Kiehl’s has been around for a long time with plenty of devoted customers and has also won many industry awards. The Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask scooped up an Elle International Beauty Award in 2018, and the Ultra Facial Cleanser won an Allure Best of Beauty Award in 2011; the magazine gave the same award to the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye in 2013. Oprah and plenty of supermodels have declared their love for Crème de Corps, and the company says it has been best-seller for four decades, with an average of 1.5 containers of the cream selling every minute.

Dig into the reviews on Sephora, and they are largely positive, with most products garnering 4-5 stars and 20,000 “loves.” The Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado gets 4.3 stars, with reviewers praising its hydrating properties – “I have major dark circles. I’ve been using this eye cream for years. Whenever I try something new to experiment my under eyes beg for it back. Its luxurious and creamy on application and it mixes really well with concealer, keeping your eyes hydrated ALL DAY.” Those who didn’t like it said it was too thick or simply didn’t work for them– “very thick and hard blend on skin.”

The Ultra Facial Moisturizer gets 3.8 stars and over 3,000 loves. “I have been using this product for years and I always go back to it. Possibly one of the only sunscreens that doesn’t break me out, so that’s always a plus considering I have pretty sensitive skin. It is a bit greasy but most sunscreens are so I don’t really mind,” while detractors found it too rich for their skin type. “I thought that this would be a lightweight moisturizer with SPF for oily skin but this is straight up too oily. It also smells and feels like sunscreen! I was looking for something that is a good daily use, but I HATE applying sunscreen.”

What Are Some Alternatives to Kiehl’s?

Kiehl’s may not be the right choice for everyone, or perhaps you are looking for a skincare brand that is more streamlined, because a wide variety of products can be overwhelming. Consider Formulyst and Advanced Dermatology.

Formulyst’s philosophy is long-term and effective skincare. The brand wants to help its customers achieve their best looking skin, rather than covering it up with makeup. The comprehensive line of products targets everything from wrinkles to dark spots and dry skin. Some of the products designed to help improve skin’s texture include Formulyst Retexturing and Perfecting Serum. The serum is powered by gentle but effective alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which dissolves dead skin cells, leaving behind fresher, smoother looking skin.

Formulyst’s Anti-Dark Circle Eye Cream helps reduce puffiness and dark circles with the help of vitamins, amino acids and minerals. The potent cream contains three naturally-derived ingredients – chenopodium quinoa seed extract, caffeine and butchers broom extract – that work together to help leave the delicate eye area looking smoother and brighter. When it comes to fighting wrinkles, there’s one ingredient that is the gold standard– retinol, a vitamin A derivative. Retinol is the key ingredient in Formulyst’s Anti-Aging Night Cream. What makes this formula different is that it contains a high dose of retinol but it’s also packed with ultra-soothing and hydrating safflower seed oil and jojoba to lock moisture in and soothe the skin.

If you like the simplicity of a skincare kit, consider Advanced Dermatology. This no nonsense brand offers a pared down approach to skincare. The packaging is simple and streamlined, and the products bring skincare back to the basics. The kit contains just six essential items including a daily cleanser; serum; anti-wrinkle firming treatment; night cream; day cream and an eye cream. In other words, everything you need to achieve your best possible looking skin.

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque Review

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque is a pore minimizing mask for oily and normal skin that is said to help unclog pores and smooth skin texture. This mask contains Amazonian White Clay (kaolin), which has excellent absorption properties. After being applied to the skin, kaolin helps remove excess oil and dead skin that can clog pores. Kaolin also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness and swelling around existing blemishes. When you wash off the mask, kaolin also functions as a gentle abrasive to exfoliate the skin. Additional oil-absorbing ingredients in this mask include bentonite (another type of natural clay) and corn starch.

There are other beneficial ingredients in Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque, such as Aloe vera leaf juice, oat kernel flower, and allantoin. However, these ingredients are present in very low concentrations (less than 1%). We know this by looking at the ingredient list (which is in order of descending concentrations). All of these ingredients are listed after the preservative phenoxyethanol, which cannot be used in concentrations more than 1%.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner Review

If you’re looking for a more moisturizing toner from a brand with a centuries old tradition for providing quality products, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner. This product was designed to suit those with drier skin types, who need a little bit more TLC for their skin. unlike most toners, this product contains a plethora of emollient plant oils which help to condition and soften the surface layer of the skin. Plus, some of these plant oils, like squalane, also have occlusive properties which help to protect and reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier. In order to continue to support dry skin, this formula has also been created to be completely alcohol-free, making this product especially great for those of you who have dry and sensitive skin. According to the brand, along with protecting and reinforcing the skin through moisture, this product was also created to avoid stripping the skin of its natural oils, as well as prepare the skin for the rest of the steps in your skin care routine.

Kiehl's Calendula Toner Review

If you’re looking for an oldy but a goodie, look no further than the Kiehl’s Calendula Toner. This fan favorite has been a part of the Kiehl’s product line since the 1960’s, and has been in production for nearly 60 years. This cult classic has been specially formulated to highlight the healing and soothing properties of their hand-picked calendula flower petals. Aside from this ingredient, the formula also contains other beneficial botanical extracts like great burdock root. Unlike other western-style toners on the market with similar longevity, this product is completely alcohol free, making it a great option for those with sensitive or dry skin types, as well as those with normal to oily skin types. Additionally, this product is actually incredibly multi-purpose and can double as a gentle cleanser when applied with a cotton pad to remove leftover dirt and debri that can accumulate throughout the day. In order to get the best results from this type of product, we recommend applying it after cleansing. This helps to make sure that you’ve cleansed thoroughly, and also rebalances your skin’s pH. The light layer of moisture that is left behind also helps to prep your skin for the rest of the products in your skincare routine.

Kiehl's Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter Review

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter is a rich, air-whipped body butter that absorbs quickly, feels light on the skin, and provides 24-hour hydration. It is enriched with shea butter, jojoba butter, soy milk, and honey. Shea butter is the natural fat obtained from the nuts of the African shea tree. When applied to the skin, shea butter is known to help defend against dehydration, restore suppleness, and improve the appearance of dry skin. Jojoba butter is refined from jojoba oil, the oil extracted from the seeds of the desert shrub, Simmondsia Chinensis. Jojoba butter is known to nurture and soften skin because its chemical composition is very similar to that of the skin’s natural sebum (oil). Jojoba butter also has excellent spreadability, and provides a smooth and elegant feel on the skin. Soy milk contains isoflavones that can brighten the skin, decrease redness, boost collagen production, and improve skin tone. Honey functions as a natural emollient to smooth and soften the skin, while providing nourishment due to its rich composition of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Honey also has anti-acne, anti-aging, and skin-repairing benefits.

Kiehl's Age Defender Review

If you’re looking for an anti-aging treatment to specifically target fine lines and wrinkles, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s. As part of the brand’s men’s skincare line, this product was designed to minimize the amount of product while maximizing efficacy. According to the brand, this all-in-one moisturizer was specifically formulated to cater to men’s thicker and coarser facial skin. The formula behind this product contains a number of botanical extracts that were included to boost this moisturizers anti-aging benefits. This includes linseed extract and caffeine, which help to depuff while simultaneously lifting and firming the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Capryloyl Salicylic Acid has also been included in this formula to gently exfoliate the skin, improving the overall texture and appearance of the skin. Salicylic acid differs from other exfoliating acids as it is oil-soluble and therefore can penetrate deeper into the pore to clear out dirt and debri. Al together, we’d recommend this product to those of you who are looking to step up your skincare game, without sacrificing efficiency.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Hydro Plumping Re Texturizing Serum Concentrate Review

If you’re looking for a lightweight hydrator to boost the efficacy of your current moisturizer, you may want to look into the Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. This product was designed to serve as a moisturizing, hydrating serum. But like other hydrating serums on the market, this product from Kiehl’s offers a little more heft. Most hydrating serums contain large quantities of humectants, which draw water onto and into the skin. The Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate is no different in this aspect, and has a large percentage of glycerin contained in this formula. But without a proper occlusive, these humectants can actually further dry your skin. To combat this, the Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate contains a few variants of silicones, which act as occlusives to keep moisture on the skin. Although dimethicone and other silicones often get a bad wrap, they can actually be great ingredients to trap water in the skin. That being said, if you know you’re sensitive to silicones, this product is probably not the best option for you.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate Review

When most of us think about chemical peels, we often think about high percentage actives that can do a ton of good, but if used incorrectly, can do a ton of bad as well. The Kiehl’s team wanted to take the iconic chemical peel and give it a little bit of a lift. The result was the Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate. This product combines a number of key active ingredients that were designed to resurface the skin without unnecessarily stripping or drying out the skin. That being said, you won’t find the traditional trio of exfoliating acids including lactic, glycolic and salicylic in this product. Instead, the Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate utilizes sustainably sourced quinoa husk extract, cactus extract and phytic acid. Quinoa husk extract and phytic acid act as the main exfoliants in this formula, which work to remove dead skin cells and brighten up the overall complexion. Cactus fruit extract on the other hand is packed with antioxidants which help to protect and reinforce the skin against environmental stressors.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm Review

If you’re looking for an extra nourishing addition to your routine, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm. This product was designed to serve as a daily facial moisturizer for those with dry to extra dry skin types. With a rich, balm like consistency, this product contains a variety of emollient and occlusive plant oils and butters, which help to protect and soften the skin. Additionally, this formula also contains Edelweiss flower extract, which helps to strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier and improve barrier function. It is often the case that those with extra dry and sensitive skin types often have a damaged skin barrier. This damaged skin barrier can cause a variety of problems for the skin including severe dryness, increased irritation, more breakouts and blemishes. By repairing the skin’s barrier, this product helps to bring dry skin back into balance so that it can begin to regulate its levels of hydrate and moisture on its own.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Youth Dose Eye Treatment Review

If you’re looking for a gentle yet potent retinol product for the under eye area specifically, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment. This product was designed to smooth and brighten the delicate skin under the eye by reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles overtime. The formula behind this product also features a trio of active ingredients including pro-retinol, vitamin C and grape seed extract. Starting off with pro-retinol, this moniker refers to the ingredient retinyl palmitate. This retinol ester is one of the weakest retinol options available, but this does present some advantages. A weaker form of retinol is going to by nature produce much less irritation, which is why it’s commonly used for the sensitive skin under the eye. Vitamin C and grape seed extract on the other hand help to brighten the area as well as add some extra protection due to the antioxidants that are found in both ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Youth Dose Eye Treatment Review

Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment is an anti-aging eye cream that is said to instantly brighten the eye area and help reduce the appearance of under-eye lines and dark circles over time. It has a lightweight, creamy texture that absorbs quickly. One of the key ingredients found within this eye cream is Pro-retinol. Pro-retinol, also known as retinyl palmitate, is the the ester of retinol (vitamin A) combined with palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid. After its absorption into the skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid (the active form of vitamin A). Then, retinoic acid interacts with receptors to increase the production of procollagen and functions to block the release of inflammatory mediators. In addition, retinoic acid is a potent antioxidant that can protect the skin from free radical damage. Ultimately, this means that the Pro-retinol in Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore skin firmness.

Another key ingredient in the Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment is ascorbyl glucoside, a stable form of vitamin C. After being absorbed into the skin, ascorbyl glucoside is broken down into L-ascorbic acid (the active form of vitamin C). Vitamin C has the ability to improve radiance and skin texture while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Lastly, the Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment contains grape seed extract, a rich source of polyphenols that help to brighten the skin and visibly reduce dark circles.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate Review

Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate is a calmative facial oil formulated for problem skin, including skin prone to blemishes, visible redness, and discomfort. It is said to calm the feeling of stressed skin, strengthen the skin’s barrier, reduce redness, and balance hydration. This oil is formulated with 100% naturally derived ingredients, such as hemp-derived cannabis sativa seed oil and green oregano oil.

Cannabis sativa seed oil is an extremely nourishing oil that can benefit all skin types, especially those with oily or acne prone skin. This is because cannabis sativa seed oil helps to balance oil production and will not clog pores. It also provides long-lasting moisturization and calms irritated skin. Green oregano oil is used in this Kiehl’s facial oil because of its purifying effects. There are several compounds in green oregano oil that have effective antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. In addition to these active ingredients, the Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate contains several fragrance compounds, including citral, citronellol, geraniol, linalool, and limonene. While these plant-derived compounds impart a pleasant fragrance, they are known to be potent skin sensitizers in some people.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl’s Super Multi Corrective Cream Review

If you’re looking to target more than one skin concern, but would like to minimize the amount of products in your routine, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Super Multi Corrective Cream. This product aims to tackle some of the most prevalent anti-aging skin concerns including dehydration, dryness, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. The key ingredients behind this formula include jasmonic acid, beech tree extract and hyaluronic acid. Jasmonic acid was inspired by the signal molecules that plants secrete as a method of self defense, but in skincare, this product helps to restore skin’s elasticity and boost collagen production. Beech tree extract on the other hand has been shown to increase skin’s firmness, while also working to plump the skin. Finally, hyaluronic acid is an incredibly popular ingredient in skincare which possesses the unique ability to draw up to 1,000 times its weight in water. All together, this product would be an excellent addition to your skincare routine if you’re looking to target the most common signs of aging without using harsher, more intense actives.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanse Review

If you’re looking for a workhorse cleanser that removes impurities without stripping the skin, you may want to look into the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. This product is one of the original best sellers from Kiehl’s and has been a mainstay for many beauty gurus over the years. Because this product was designed to suit all skin types and cleanse gently, the ingredients list behind this product is actually relatively minimal. The main ingredients within this formula include gentler surfactants to create a lather, as well as a number of plant oils to offset any potential for dryness. The main plant oils used in this product include apricot kernel oil, squalane and vitamin E. Each of these work with the formula to nourish the skin, soften the skin’s surface and deliver a solid dose of hydration. Because of these ingredients and the overall formula, we would recommend this product to those of you who are looking for a gentle, pH balanced formula, but still want to experience that satisfying lather and foam.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

If you’re a fan of the legendary Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, you may want to check out its daytime double, the Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate. This is one of the newer releases from Kiehl’s, but a big hit nonetheless. Like the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, the main actives behind the Daily Reviving Concentrate are actually a blend of essential oils. In this particular formula, the essential oils of grapefruit, coriander, orange and ginger have been included. Ginger in particular is incredibly antioxidant rich, which helps to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals. This environmental damage, although not immediately evident, can be one of the primary causes of premature aging. The essential oils in this formula are also housed in a base of plant oils including sunflower oil as well as tamanu oil. Sunflower oil is an excellent skin softening oil that is lightweight and fast absorbing, while tamanu oil has actually been recommended as a treatment for those with hyperpigmentation caused by age spots or acne scars. Additionally, since this product does come in an oil base, the Daily Reviving Concentrate can actually be quite versatile depending on your skincare routine and personal preferences.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque Review

If you’re looking for a face mask that does not dry, sensitize or irritate the skin, you may want to check out the Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydrating Masque. This jelly texture mask is a nice update to the classic clay mask, which can be drying and sensitizing as well as purifying. This mask will help to elevate any signs of irritation including dryness, peeling, redness and even inflammatory acne. The two key ingredients in this formula include calendula and aloe vera gel, which helps to give this product its beneficial properties as well as it’s unique gel texture. Calendula extract and calendula petals are known for their skin soothing properties as well as their benefit to oily skin types in particular. Aloe vera on the other hand can be beneficial for almost all skin types, as it can help to hydrate and soothe the skin. In order to get the most out of this product, we recommend you apply this mask for 5 minutes and then rinse with warm water and take the opportunity to perform a gentle face massage.

INGREDIENTS

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Review

The Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution was designed to be a highly effective spot corrector that brightens the skin, increases radiance and boosts clarity. According to the brand, this product can help with dark spots caused by age and sun exposure, and utilizes vitamin C, white birch extract and peony extract to deliver these results. Vitamin C is one of the most popular ingredients in products that target hyperpigmentation as it helps to brighten the skin and lighten dark spots. White birch extract is an ingredient derived from sugar that helps to restore hydration and important nutrients to the skin. Finally, peony extract has been used in chinese medicine for centuries, and also acts as a potent antioxidant that protects against the oxidative damage that can actually make dark spots worse. In addition to these star ingredients, there are a few additional actives such as salicylic acid which help to exfoliate and brighten the skin. Additionally, this product does contain denatured alcohol as a primary ingredient in the base of this product, so if you have extra dry skin, this may not be the best option for you.

Kiehl's Glow Formula Skin Hydrator

Kiehl’s has been a leading brand in the beauty and skincare industry for decades. The brand was started nearly 100 years ago, with their first pharmacy. Today, the brand still sticks to their roots, providing effective skincare, bodycare and personal care, inspired by natural ingredients. Today, we’re looking at their Glow Formula Skin Hydrator, which moisturizes while simultaneously adding a subtle, yet lasting glow. We’ll be taking an up close look at the formula behind this product to help you decide whether it’s worth trying out. So without further adieu, let’s get started!

Kiehl's Moisturizer

Kiehl’s Moisturizer Overview If you’ve been looking for a new cream to add to your skin care routine, you may have come across several Kiehl’s moisturizer products during your search. The company carries a variety of moisturizing items, like face moisturizers, moisturizing gels, and salves. Having such a large selection of Kiehl’s moisturizer products can make it difficult to find the best cream for your skin, but if you focus on specific problems you’d like to address, and study the ingredients, you’ll be less likely to make a mistake and waste your money. For example, some Kiehl’s moisturizer products have SPF protection and focus on plumping up skin with natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid and apricot kernel oil. Other moisturizers under this brand aim to tighten skin through collagen production by using ingredients like Copper and Calcium peptides. Keep in mind that before making a purchase, it’s always a good idea to speak to your dermatologist. Kiehl’s products are not incredibly expensive, but if you only rely on Kiehl’s moisturizer reviews online to make your purchasing decision, you may be exposing yourself to unexpected allergies and other side effects.

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream

If you’re looking for a Kiehl’s moisturizer to get rid of wrinkles, this cream may be a viable option to produce results over the long term. This is because the cream doesn’t just add immediate moisture, but seeks to change your skin’s foundation. Ingredients like Copper PCA and Calcium PCA in this Kiehl’s moisturizer work by stimulating collagen production and slowing collagen degradation. By strengthening collagen fibers, the cream aims to increase skin elasticity, which increases skin resiliency and should theoretically reduce the appearance of wrinkles. At $52 for 2.5 ounces, this Kiehl’s moisturizer is affordable for most individuals, and also provides basic SPF protection.

    Have ordered their creamy mango moisturizer , which I tried before in samples. The product arrived with the chemical smell, not even close to what I have tried before from Samples. Send them an email to customer service notifying of strange chemical smell . Got a courtesy auto-response and absolutely no follow up after that. Bought it in Beginning of December. Now it s a mid of January . Still no reply . Bad service. The company does not care about standards not in the production not in customer care.
