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.

Really like this! (Sensitive skin)

I LOVE this. I use it as moisturizer morning and night. Seems a little heavy at first but a little can go a long way. Love the clean smell and the smoothness on my skin. I do believe my skin has improved and brightened since I have started using this product. Would recommend.

Great Luxe Cream
Purchased

I have purchased this twice since getting my Birchbox sample and it's a great skin soother in any season. I typically rotate this moisturizer with another lighter weight one and find it's very effective when used in rotation.

LOVED THIS Cream!!

Let me just start with I have super sensitive skin, that being said this cream was just wonderful. It was not heavy at all. I loved it. It refreshed my skin and felt light, not like the usual sensitive skin creams. Definately will purchase again!

Perfect for the warmer months.
Purchased

I received my first sample of this back in May 2012, and I've purchased several full-sized containers since. I'm not so worried about lines and wrinkles yet, but I thought it couldn't hurt. But what I LOVED about it was the rich texture and the way it mattified my otherwise "glowing" t-zone without making me feel tight all over. I have very combination skin, and even the most gentle moisturizers leave me with problem blemishes. This cleared me up and evened out my skin tone - it made me glow in the good way! However, I live in Denver, where the winters are DRY DRY DRY, and this just doesn't provide the moisture for these cold months. I'm back to struggling for the time being and can't wait to break out my Abyssine Cream come spring!

Ive been big fan of kiehl's product and this one doesn't failed. Feels light weight on the skin, and keep my skin moist. Absorb fast and not greasy.

questionable ingredients

There are nice ingredients in this, and there are others that are harmful. I prefer not to put them on my face. It's a gamble I don't want to make

My favorite product from Birchbox
Purchased

I love this product. I was not using anything similar to it, prior to receiving it in my Birchbox. The sample size was very generous, so I started applying it to my face and neck, before bed each night. Not only does it moisturize, but it still leaves my skin feeling clean, and it doesn't clog my pours.

I love the feel of this cream
Purchased

I just got this cream a few days ago and I love the smell and feel of it. I haven't been using it long enough to know how the anti aging part works but based on all the wonderful reviews I can't wait to see. I only gave it a four because I'm not sure how the anti aging component will work yet.

Wonderful cream
Purchased

I love this cream! It is the first "expensive" facial cream I've purchased and I feel like it really is doing the job they say it will do.
