Apply a little moisturizer to your face, run a small amount of Kiehl’s Creative Cream Wax through your hair, and you’re ready for the day.

Birchbox Breakdown

This powerful matte moisturizer must qualify as some kind of medieval alchemy. Through a blend of shine-reducing elements like zinc, sodium and magnesium, it achieves gold: lasting hydration that’s completely shine-free. The fast absorbing formula controls and absorbs excess oil production on the face while boosting skin’s natural protective barrier.

How it Works

Magnesium promotes the growth of new, healthy cells, while sodium PCA, a naturally occurring humectant in the skin, enhances skin’s softness. Zinc regulates sebum production by inhibiting the enzyme activity on the sebaceous gland.

How to Use

Apply a dime-sized amount to freshly washed face in the morning. Reapply throughout the day as desired. This moisture gel goes a long way—use sparingly.

My favorite shine reducing product

I have always had very oily skin and been very self conscious of it. This product instantly takes care of that, and is extremely refreshing. For the price point it is the best anti shine product you can get. Similar to the lab series one, but a much better value, and has a pump as well.

I love this moisturizer, even though it for men. It does a great job of moisturizing without leaving skin greasy!

Great at cutting down on shine
Purchased

I use this moisturizer every day, even in the winter. It reduces oil during the day, yet still moisturizes my face and keeps it from feeling dry. It's the best of both worlds.

Kiehl's Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator is a solid product
Purchased

I'm typically not a fan of moisturizing product during the day- they always seem to be greasy and filmy. Kiehl's Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator is a solid product- the only reason that I gave it 4 stars is the lack of SPF.

Non-greasy winner in my books
Purchased

I've used quite a few moisturizers from here and other brick & mortar stores but this one is great for the fact that it is concentrated and comes in a quaintly sized bottle that makes it easy to carry to the gym or other travels. A few pumps and you're good to go with a shine free look. So far I have been quite impressed with the Kiehl's Facial Fuel line in general.

Great Oil-Free Moisturizer
Purchased

Was looking for something that would help control shine, this did exactly that. An excellent lightweight moisturizer, I usually use this in lieu of an SPF if I know I'm not going to be outside much of the day.

Decent Product
Purchased

Kept my skin a bit too dry, so I combined it with another moisturizer and it worked better. I did like that it did not irritate my skin it all, but I need a bit more moisture. Perhaps I did not use enough at one time.

Not impressed
Purchased

I have very oily skin so I was thrilled when I came across this product. I purchased it, despite never trying it, hoping it would work well. Thus far I have not been too impressed and will be looking elsewhere in the future.

The bottle is nice and one pump gives you the perfect amount of lotion but the first thing you'll notice is that it smells a little weird. My preference is for unscented facial lotions and this, while not perfume-like, has a strange smell. It's difficult to describe but it's almost like clay. This is a minor note however as the smell does not seem to linger. You'll notice it when you apply it but it quickly fades as it dries (or your nose gets used to it).

Once on it seems like any other moisturizer. It is easily absorbed and doesn't leave a residue on your skin. However it's "shine free" properties either don't exist or simply aren't effective on me. My skin produces oil and shine as if I had never used it. While it seems to be an alright moisturizer the above and beyond "shine free" claims just don't hold up. I've had better success with other moisturizers when it comes to controlling oil and shine without them marketing it as a feature of the product.

The three stars are because it is an effective moisturizer, just do not necessarily expect anything else out of it.
