Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion

The biggest mistake that people with combination or oily skin make is skipping moisturizer. You need hydration, no matter how slick your face feels at the end of the day. Plus, the right product—like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion—can actually keep your skin’s oil levels in check. The light formula adds just the right amount of moisture to keep skin perfectly in balance.

Perfect for Combination Skin

This moisturizer is by far my favorite of the dozens and dozens I've tried. You only need to apply a small amount to cover both your face and neck. It leaves the skin feeling soft and fresh. After several days of consistent use, I certainly noticed a difference in the overall tone, texture, and balance of my skin! Stop here: the perfect moisturizer for gals with extra "glow" is here!

Nice light-weight moisturizer
Purchased

I decided to get this because it's a decent price for the amount of product and Kiehls is a very known skincare brand. I never tried Kiehls before aside from small samples.
At first when I applied it I wasn't very happy with the lotion cause it felt a little sticky and like it wouldn't moisturize too well. However, within 5 minutes it set in my skin and made my skin surprisingly soft and matte. I'd say this is good if you don't like primers (like myself), cause it does give the mattifying effect a primer would.
If you have dry skin, definetely NOT the product for you. If your skin is oily or combination, I would try it!
This will be good for spring and summer for me, since in the winter I need a heavier duty moisturizer. I do however wish it came with SPF, but great lotion overall.

Great for oily skin
Purchased

I originally wanted to purchase an oil free moisterizer that I received as a sample, but after seeing the heavy price tag for such a small amount, I opted for a less expensive one. After reading some of the reviews and loving other Kiehl's products, I decided on this one. You get a large amount for the price. There isn't really a smell and absorbs nice and quickly. The texture is somewhat thick compared to other oil free face lotions, but didn't make a difference once applied. I didn't even expect it to really control my oily t-zone, but it does...all day and all night! I guess the only downside for me is that it doesn't have any SPF, but my makeup does, so it's fine.

Why alcohol?

I have an oily face, so this sounded perfect for me!

But why would they put alcohol in it? That stuff burns!

I bought the whole shebang: the wash, the toner, and the moisturizer. Never felt any regimen burn my skin so much!

This moisturizer stung the most! Maybe because it was the third time I put alcohol on my face in one wash!

So, I dunno might be good if you have super tough skin. Even then, I wouldn't use this if your toner or face was has it in it.

Not sure.

I have been using Kiehl's Abyssine Cream for a while and decided to try this one since it's oil free and I tend to get oily by the end of the day in my T-zone. Surprisingly the Abyssine cream is thicker yet soaks in completely and leaves me with a matte finish all day where as this one is, well, just okay. I can still feel it a little on the surface and surprisingly it feels more oily than the Abyssine. I know everyone is different and you have to find the right cream that works for you. I will be going back to Abyssine. Overall though I LOVE Kiehl's products.

Light and perfect.

Great face lotion that doesn't feel like it's caked on or feeling oily. Perfect before bed or under make up.

I love this moisturizer. I use it with the rest of the set and have noticed a big difference in my face and less oil production. Will definitely buy again

Great stuff.
Purchased

It didn't clog my pores, it's light and isn't greasy at all. It smells nice and soaks right in, you don't have to rub it in forever. It didn't irritate my skin - I use something else for day and use this for night since it doesn't have sunscreen.

Basic Must.
Purchased

I love this lotion as it absorbs instantly! Also it's great because my boyfriend will use it--we both like that it's free of that strong fragrance so many moisturizers have.

Love this stuff

I have oily skin and this moisturizer did not weigh my skin down or make me feel greasy. Love this product. I even bought a full size.
