Awesome product and buying from Birchbox is better than Kiehl's Rewards
Purchased

Love this product. A bit thick, but it soaks in. Good coverage, but doesn't leave your face greasy. Highly recommend.

NOTE: So glad Birchbox is now carrying Kiehl's stuff. I was a devout Kiehl's Rewards members, but you have to spend much more and get less...stick with Birchbox it's a much richer reward program. Kiehl's Rewards caps you at $200 in rewards...with Birchbox, the more you spend the more you get!!

Pricey, but totally worth it!
Purchased

Kiehl's is, of course, pretty much the best there is. I purchased this product and was pleased to find out that, despite the high price, this bottle lasted me nearly 6 months. The smell is not overwhelming and fades after you first put it on. It's not uber greasy and dries quickly leaving your face with an awesome complexion. Definitely recommend!

My go-to daily SPF in summer

I love the cooling effect of this, and I also love that it absorbs fast and doesn't leave behind any greasiness, which is pretty amazing for an SPF moisturizer. It smells good too. My skin likes it a lot, and I'm pretty sensitive and acne-prone.

Husband loves it!
Purchased

My husband has now become dedicated to his 'beauty' routine with the introduction of the Kiehls mens line into our home. His skin's tone has improved and he's looking more and more like the first year we met! He has fairly sensitive skin, and this has never caused irritation or redness

AMAZING
Purchased

Lightweight. Great smell and texture. Leaves a cool tingling sensation and skin was soft and smooth. It absorbs quickly. Wow!

Best Moisturizer Available
Purchased

Kiehl's nailed it with this product. This is my go-to moisturizer on a daily basis, and it's all that much better after a long night. It works as a pre-shave lotion to soften the hair, post-shave to protect the skin, and it's spf 15. It's not heavy at all, and there is a great cooling sensation that accompanies each application.

The bottle recommends placing it in the fridge to amplify that cooling sensation, and I agree wholeheartedly.

On The Daily
Purchased

As someone with a fair complexion; I have been trying to find a decent daily moisturizer that also has some UV protection. I have found a winner in this product. Smooth finish, non-oily and a great smell.

The Best
Purchased

Great smell. Great feel. Its a product I'll continue to buy from Birchbox- it makes my face feel great, and I enjoy it more than many of the other products I've sampled. Not oily, not dry- just enough of both.

Great feel and texture
Purchased

I am still on the fence as to whether this really moisturizes, but it feels great after application to my face. Energizes my face!

Cool and refreshing

I frequently use this product after shaving, and it gives my occasionally oily skin a very clean, cool, and refreshed feeling. I also like that Kiehl's has tossed in a 15 SPF for everyday protection.
