http://www.kiehls.ca describes this product as: This moisturizer is readily absorbed, leaving the surface area soft and nurtured. The moisturizing effects of this formulation are continued beneath the surface layers for daytime or anytime moisturizing and texturizing of the skin.
The Product: 75mL for $22, 120mL for $32, 250mL for $49CAD. This light moisturizer is unscented, absorbs quickly and does not interfere with tinted moisturizer throughout the day. It also doesn’t require a lot to cover your entire face and neck and since it is by Kiehl’s, there are more natural ingredients than most brands typically have. It also works well on dry skin (for summer), and oily skin all year long.
The Packaging: This Kiehl’s favourite comes in several sizes and is in a squeeze bottle. As you work your way through it, the label on the bottle creases but to me, that’s not so bad. It’s great if you need a travel sized bottle or enough to last through the year.
Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Squalane, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Butylene Glycol, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbitan Oleate, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Stearic Acid, Cera Alba/Beeswax, Myristyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil/SweetGratissima/Avocado Oil.
Cons with this product are that there are parabens in it which are known to be drying, and that is that there is no SPF. I don’t find it drying, and to compare, it is more hydrating than Aveeno Daily Ultra Calming Moisturizer SPF 15 and Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer SPF 15. Kiehl’s does make a version with SPF 15, although the inclusion of SPF in a moisturizer changes the consistency and from my research, between Kiehl’s and Aveeno, means the product is less hydrating.
The Rating: B
