Kiehl's Abyssine Cream +

It’s time to take a deep dive into skincare science. A group of Kiehl’s researchers were in the Galapagos when they discovered abyssine, a molecule that thrives in the darkest depths of the ocean. Upon inspection in their lab, they found that this molecule’s ability to protect itself translated into a host of skin benefits—from fading wrinkles to neutralizing free radicals. They turned these findings into this all-time bestselling cream. The lush, quick-absorbing formula gives you all the benefits of its miraculous marine ingredient, and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

Didn't notice any good benefits

It don't have a bad smell at all. But the product does feel thick and it unfortunately broke me out on my chin. I have combination skin type...if that helps.

feels good, leaves me feeling bad
Sampled

I received this cream and was instantly intrigued. It had little to no scent, and felt thick, rich, and smooth. I eagerly applied it to my face and neck and everything felt wonderful. The next day it looked like I'd been eating greasy food for a week; I hadn't had so many zits since I was 20.

I remembered that some products require your skin to get used to them so I tried it again, every day for 5 days. I even used topical zit creams. Not only did I find new pimples every day but my spot treatments didn't even work.

I stopped using it and two days later my skin was clear again. I am prone to getting pimples, but not that easy. I suppose it just wasn't right for my skin, and is maybe intended for older skin (I'm 30)...I would not recommend this for anyone my age or younger who gets occasional break outs.

Not impressed
Sampled

This cream is very, very thick. Definitely not for someone who isn't concerned with aging.

Ugh...

I am only 22 so I have no real interest in any ant-aging/anti wrinkle product. Not for me.

NOT FOR OILY, or ACNE PRONE SKIN
Sampled

This product broke me out, BIG time. I would definitely not purchase, or recommend it to friends with oily skin. It's really heavy. I do think it would be nice for mature skin, or drier skin types. I'm really dissapointed, because I was really excited to try this.

Not for me (allergic!).
Sampled

I was so excited to try this product from my May Birchbox that I put it right on my face without reading the ingredients first. I have a very severe allergy to soy! Oops. My eyes swelled shut.
...
It had a lovely texture and I would totally use it if it didn't have soy in it.

Not for me, Might work for others
Sampled

This is an okay product. It applies very well, and a little goes a long way. I'm just not in love with this product. I much prefer a light lotion, and this is a very thick cream. Overall, would not buy this, but can see how others would enjoy it.

Stung My Eyes
Sampled

This product stung my eyes very badly, even when I only applied it to my lower jaw/neck area. Not for me :/

I have sensitive eyes and this cream made them sting. This has happened with other wrinkle creams as well but I was looking forward to trying the Kiehl's brand and hopeful that it would be a good solution for me.

Not for the sensitive skin
Sampled

I have very sensitive skin and after using this before bed I woke up with an awful breakout. I do NOT recommend this for those with sensitive skin at all.

My face felt amazing immediately after using it but the effects afterwards are not worth it to me.
