Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with moisturisers.  Don't get me wrong, I love how they feel on the skin but finding one that works with your makeup can sometimes be a challenge.  I'm one of the lucky ones blessed with acne prone/dehydrated/oily skin but now that I'm a little more clued up on what works best with it, I've finally found the perfect moisturiser in the form of the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream*.

Until this year when Kiehl's opened their Glasgow Flagship store, I've never had much experience with the brand.  What I look for in skincare is no fuss, simple products and I feel Kiehl's is the perfect match.  No unnecessary ingredients and simplistic packaging.

The Ultra Facial Cream is a 24 hour, light textured moisturiser which keeps skin comfortable and hydrated during harsh weather conditions.  Now this could mean very hot or very cold temperatures which will definitely come in handy living in Scotland!  To ensure this, they've taken Glycoprotein which is an extract from microorganisms found in sea glaciers as well as extracts from Imperata Cylindrica which is a plant found in the Australian desert which has great water retention in dry conditions.  The thought that went into this alone is very impressive.

Now, how does it feel on the skin? Absolutely wonderful.  A little goes a long way with this stuff and it leaves your skin feeling so soft and instantly hydrated.  I find that makeup applies very well underneath as long as you don't apply too much.  I also find you don't need to wait around too much for it to sink in.

All in all, it's a very impressive moisturiser.  With the cold Winter weather approaching, it's definitely one to pick up for an extra boost in protection and hydration!
