About 2 weeks ago I had a meeting at Kiehl’s here in Vienna to sort out some details for an amazing giveaway I am planning for you guys, once 2.000 Bloglovin’ followers are reached. Before leaving they asked if there was anything I wanted to test and I ended up choosing the Ultra Facial Moisturizer (oil free). I had tried their regular Ultra Facial Moisturizer back in January but felt like it was almost too rich for my skin. Even though I have pretty dry skin I prefer products that are hydro-based because oily products always give me a feeling of being stuck under a layer of grease and it even makes my skin kind of itchy.
I’ve been using this moisturizer twice a day for the past 2 weeks now and can honestly say that it is a product I will love for a long time. My skin seems to glow a bit more and is a lot more even, which I especially noticed when applying my make-up. It creates a much smoother surface.
The consistency is almost gel-like (kind of like aloe vera gel – which I also LOVE as a moisturizer) and feels very cooling when applied. If you have spots with really dry or raw skin it may burn a tiny bit when being applied (ie. around the nose in my case) but feels soothing shortly after. It absorbs quickly, leaving the skin super smooth and glowy.
**Even though this product is c/o Kiehl’s Austria, this post expresses my honest opinion and I would be happy to pay full price for the product any day. I was not asked to write about it, but wanted to because it really is a product I love!!
