Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream | Review

We are all well and truly into the glorious month that is December, so with this in mind and the weather getting colder, the evenings getting darker and the whole world beginning to be more christmasy I felt like it was time to give a new moisturiser a try and swap my trusty Clinique Moisture Surge for a lil something different....I decided I'd stick with one of my many favourite brands and let you all know how I got on....SO I bought the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream around about 2 weeks ago now and wanted to give myself enough time in using it for me to then do a 'proper' review. I LOVE Kiehl's both as a brand and of course their products, one of my all time favourites is the creamy avocado eye treatment it's honestly the best!

The Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream is quite a cheapish moisturiser with Kiehl's being classed as a highend brand at £24 a pop it's £10 cheaper than my trusty Clinique Moisture Surge, however it's slightly more difficult for me to get hold of as I sadly don't have a Kiehl's Counter in any shops near where I live, but I had no fear as thank god for the wonderful website that is John Lewis......I haven't really seen anyone talk about this particular moisturiser or rave about it so I was a lil bit apprehensive as to try it but if I don't try then I will never know, and neither will you guys.

It has no fragrance which I was quite pleased about as most moisturisers that have a fragrance or are scented tend to give my skin a horrible reaction and irritate it, this one hasn't irritated my skin in the slightest and has really boosted the hydration in my skin, it claims to continuously replenish skin and says that it will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft & hydrated......All the things I could ever want from a moisturiser, even more so in the winter. Now I'm more than happy to say this moisturiser is most definitely as good as my trusty Clinique if not (and I can't quite believe I'm typing this.....) BETTER!! I use this both first thing in the morning & last thing at night, and boy oh BOY does it make my makeup go on like a dream, If I were to compare this moisturiser to another highend one I would probably say the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream would fit the bill. It's quite a thickish gel-meets-cream cream. I love how a little goes a long way and that it sinks in nicely, like I said my makeup glides on and it just sits wonderfully on top, it's moisturising, incredibly hydrating and just what the doctor ordered for winter. It takes a bit longer to sink into my skin than my clinique moisture surge but just leaves skin with this really hydrated and natural dewey glow. It's honestly UH-MA-ZING & I really can't recommend this moisturiser highly enough. Even in two weeks alone I can already feel and see the difference in my skin, this wonderfully hydrating cream contains Squalane & water retaining Imperata Cylindrica to protect the skin through harsh weather conditions, I.E. it's the best moisturiser to use in the winter and leaves your skin feeling hydrated 24/7. A little goes such a long way!

It's not greasy, heavy or leaves you feeling like you've got slime all over your face, it's honestly beautiful. I personally wouldn't say it's light as it does have the same consistency as Charlotte Tilburys Magic Cream. I can't understand why this has not been raved about by other beauty bloggers it's one heck of an incredible moisturiser. Creamy, hydrating & nourishes skin, what more could you want from a moisturiser? 

If you try one new moisturiser this winter make sure it's this one!
