this cream is the replacement for the hydration facial cream, but still works good!

Good hydration, but irritated my skin


I won’t recommend this cream to people with sensitive skin as it can cause irritation. Otherwise it’s a great hydrator for acne-prone skin.

  2. Combo skin? You need this!


    If you have combination skin this is the moisturiser for you. When I use this, my skin literally soaks it all up and it’s left feeling so smooth and hydrated until the morning! A must have!!

  4. Only Western Moisturiser that worked for me


    verified purchaser
    This moisturiser is the HG during summer. Non-sticky, definitely locks in moisture!! I love it!
  5. Good


    It can moisturize the skin well and can also be used for dry skin with acne. For me with acne, this oil-free version is better than the classic version.

  7. good


    This one is suitable for use in summer and not moisturized enough in winter.
  8. Light but moisturising


    verified purchaser
    The texture of this gel cream is super light and watery but it soaks into your skin so well and is so moisturising. It’s pricey but it works so well especially if you get super oily skin like me!
  9. Not hydrating


    verified purchaser
    My experience with this moisturizer is that it won't leave the skin hydrated. I like the gel form, but as soon as I apply it, my skin is thirtsy again. Perhaps works better for people with oily skin.
  10. Best hydrator, not the best moisturiser


    Best hydrator for dehydrated skin., Not the best moisturiser for dry skin, unless you top it up with a heavier cream on top
  11. Okay


    There is nothing wrong with this product - it’s just nothing amazing. There are more advanced and probably effective moisturisers on the market and id only recommend purchasing if you are really after something simple. The gel consistency is nice! I’ve resorted to mostly using this as an under eye pick em up
  12. My favorite


    I have been using this for 3 years and our relationship is still going strong. I would recommend this product for anyone with a sensitive, normal to oily skin. The texture of the cream is gel-like, your skin will drink it the second you apply it on your face.
    I do however find that after using it for quite a while my skin is kind of used to it and I am on a look out for something to help the...

  13. Amazing Product!


    I got this as a sample from adorebeauty, and I absolutely loved it. I have combination skin (my skin can get quite oily throughout the day but i also have patches of dry skin around my eyes, mouth and nose). I found that this gel worked perfectly for me. With other moisturisers I've tried I have had the problems that it made my face too oily, made me break out, didn't work on the dry areas or left...

  14. Great day time moisteriser


    I love this moisturiser in combination with the normal ultra face cream! I find this one sits perfectly under my makeup during the day as I do have quite oily skin, it keeps me matte for longer. I love the normal ultra face cream for night time! The perfect combo.
  15. Staple Moisturiser


    My skin type is combination sensitive but especially oily around the T-zone. This is my favourite moisturiser because its gel formula is light-weight, fast absorbing and moisturising. It's also fragrance-free which I appreciate. It's my safe zone product for when I need something that won't irritate my skin. And when I consistently use it, I find it hydrates the dry sections on my cheeks while kee...

  16. great moisturiser for oily skin


    i love this non sticky moisturiser that gives my skin just enough moisture during the summer months. i find though its not as moisturising during the winter months when the heating is on.
  17. Pricey but good


    In all honesty this is very very overpriced, however it is the only moisturiser I have found that doesn't irritate my skin, break me out or make me oily during the day!
    Definitely hydrates well but I think the jar could be bigger for the steep price tag.
  18. Best Moisturiser for Oily Skin


    I love this gel texture moisturiser that does not leave an oily finish. It is mattifying but it does not leave my skin dry, in fact it is very hydrating!
  19. Ultimate Moisturiser for oily skin


    I have oily skin and every time i use this, it soaks deep into my skin leaving it feel hydrated, soft and super smooth. Since using this, my skin feels balanced and has a nice controlled shine
  20. Invisible hydration

    Elle H

    Love how this disappears into my skin whilst providing oil free hydration! Great for summer or when I’m broken out!
  21. Good but not Great


    Totally luxurious day cream for oily skin. It is hydrating without being heavy or greasy. I find it a little bit of a weird smell
  22. Great for oily skin


    This moisturiser is so great for summer and for people with oily skin, it literally absorbs into your skin immediately leaving it feel so soft without any oily residue! Highly recommend!
  23. Okay


    Personally, the original delivers better results for me. I’m in my 30s and need a bit of help in the plumping/glowing department. While lighter, this didn’t leave me with the same glow upon waking. Probably a good option for congested skin though?
  24. Oil free yay!!


    No more oily face. I love this cream, my face is oil free from the moment I apply it until I take my makeup off at night. Love it.
  25. Beautiful brand!


    Very surprised at how soft my skin felt after! I love to use this before bed, especially when I’ve been outdoors all day!
  26. Not enough for my dry skin


    I love the original ultra facial cream but this one just wasn't enough for my dry skin even in the summer. However, it didn't do anything negative and it did provide hydration.
  27. Sooooo moisturising


    My dad and I use this (we both have combination skin) and we love it. Just one tub lasts forEVER and it wears so beautifully under makeup or under sunscreen. Will definitely repurchase. Lovely light texture, not sticky at all and absorbs quickly into the skin, love it love it love it.
  28. Great for Queensland humidity!


    Love this for day and night in summer. Tried it once and was converted. Really nice for the hot humid nights due to the gel texture. Makes me feel moisturised but fresh. Like a massive ice cold water for my skin in summer. Highly recommend for humid climates and sensitive skin.
  29. Great


    Gave to partner to use he loves it. He has extremely oil skin prone to acne. Great hydration and doesn't feel sticky or any residue.
  30. Great light weight moisturiser


    I love this product as it is very light, it works really well with my other serums. Does not leave my skin feeling oily. Works well with makeup, It last a long time as well as you do not need much
  31. Its ok


    I found this cream ok. I have combination dry and oily skin so find this great for the t zone but not for entire face. Its not moisturising enough on the dry parts of my face
  32. Lightweight Oil-Free Perfection


    Having combination skin - this is a perfect moisturiser. It is really lightweight yet hydrating without leaving any sticky or oily residue. It is especially wonderful to use during the summer as the gel-like consistency leaves your skin feeling cool and fresh. It also provides a great makeup base.
  33. Awesome


    love oil-free products hydrates and doesn't make my skin oily
  34. love love love


    I really love this light gel cream, perfect for hot summery days when you're skin doesn't need much but is in need of hydration
  35. Great for oily skin


    it is so light but moisturising enough for oily skin!
  36. Oil free perfect


    I have quite oily skin so i use this under my makeup and seems to make it last so much longer. Love this product!
  37. Great product especially under makeup!


    This moisturiser is great as it’s hydrating but not sticky or oily. I have combination skin and wear heavy makeup and it works great as a base. It seems to help hold the makeup. Recommend if you have aging skin but also still have breakouts.
  38. Great for acne skin


    I was given a sample of this to try and I love the formula. It comes out as a translucent water based gel and evaporates quickly into the skin. It's perfect for oily skin like mine. It's a tad expensive to my liking but I can't wait till they have a GWP or sale :)


    I am a huge fan of both this and the Ultra Facial cream!
    I have tried so many moisturisers and I always find myself coming back to Kiehls,

    I like to use this one in warmer weather as I find the Ultra Facial Cream a little too heavy in the hotter climates.

    Super hydrating and works well under make-up

    Highly recommend!
  40. Dehydrated oily skin types rejoice


    this gel is rapidly absorbed, not sticky and can be lathered on the oilest of faces. love it!
  41. Great for oily skin


    Love this for oily skin (I have combo skin). This just sinks in really cleanly and doesn't leave a thick residue feeling on the skin. The gel texture is really nice too.
  42. Really lovely and light


    Super nice and light on the skin. I think mum skin is a little bit too dry to use this as it soaks in really quick. If you like gel moisturisers, you’ll really like this.
  43. Not for me


    Sales associate at the store advised me to use this with the Blue Astringent Toner for my skin that was breaking out. Is the worse combo as it straight away balled up. Worse combo. I’m sure on its own it’s probably a good moisturiser for oily skin but def not with the toner and the sales associate should have known. Have basically a brand new tub that I won’t use. Bit of a waste.
  44. maximum hydration

    perfecting skin

    this product gives maximum hydration and will not clog pores. i have a very dry skin but only after 2-3 used of this cream i felt the dryness was going away.
  45. If you love gel moisturiser's you would love this.


    Wasn't a fan of this product, only because of the texture and i found it would ball up if doing your makeup or even just itching your face. I would definitely go for a cream base next time however, if you like gel base moisturisers this would be your go to.
  46. The Best Yet!


    Being a beauty therapist you’d think I’d know so much about my skin - Wrong! I still struggle with my own skin each day. But after researching this product, purchasing & testing I absolutely love it!! :) Although I do like to stay away from perfumed products this has a little scent to it, nothing too out of this world. Feels great on my skin & I can honestly feel a difference every morning & night...

    This is such a light cream and feels so.good
  48. Sinks in beautifully and not greasy!


    Love how light this gel is, it sinks in and leaves your skin feeling moisturised and clean. I hate the feeling of product on my skin so this is perfect.
  49. So refreshing!


    As someone with oily skin, I really value a good moisturiser that doesn’t make my skin feel heavy or greasy. This gel cream is amazing, a little goes a long way and it just feels so refreshing! It’s perfect for under makeup as it soaks into the skin really well.
  50. Great moisturizer for oily skin


    This moisturizer is great for oily/ very oily skin, especially during summer and great for anyone whose major skincare need is hydration. This is the only moisturizer my sister with oily skin can use because anything she tried caused her breakouts or left her oily skin very greasy, except this one.
  51. Causes breakouts for hormonal acne / combination skin


    Have been using this product for two months and it has made my skin break out in lots of little red bumps on my forehead and (for the first time in my life) along my nose as well. Felt like I had to use too much of the product for it to go over all of my face and don't like that it's in a pot rather than a pump packaging.

    I really wanted to like this product as I love the kiehls bran...

  52. What I've been looking for


    I have quite oily skin and always struggle with normal moisturisers being heavy or excessively oily. I originally tried the original Kiehl's ultra face moisturising cream, which I loved but my face was way too oily at the end of the day. Then I tried this product and it was absolutely perfect for me. The formula is so light and it leaves no sticky residue on your skin. The tub lasts quite a while....

  53. Perfect for summer


    I find this moisturiser to be just what I need when it gets hot out. It sinks in and dries super quick and gives me just the right amount of moisture in the summer for my oily skin. I do feel that it's not enough for me during the winter, so I swap to the Ultra Facial Moisturiser when my skin gets a bit drier. Overall, this is one of my everyday staples and it wears really nicely under make up too...

  54. The moisturiser i always go back to!


    I have gone through 3 jars of the smaller capacity and have recently just bought the largest size. This is the best moisturiser for combination skin because of its gel consistency and it has NEVER caused my skin to break out. I only found that during winter, it didn't provide enough hydration so I tried different brands but they caused me to break out so i still stick with this.
  55. hydrating


    this gel cream is hydrating but I find it ever so slightly irritates my sensitive skin. skin does look plumper and hydrated after applying this before bed though.
  56. your best friend if you have oily skin!


    this gel is rapidly absorbed, not sticky and can be lathered on the oilest of faces. love it!
  57. A cool dream


    I have oily skin , and did not purchase. this because it stated "Oil Free" , I usually love oils on my face. However the texture on this cream is perfect for spring/Summer. It is so light , cooling and as stated a gel.

    I love how alive my skin feels after using this moisturiser. This is definitely one of my go to daytime moisturisers along with Philosophy's renewed hope in a jar day...

  58. hydrating!


    I find this really nice because it's very hydrating but also lightweight I like to use this in the warmer months.
  59. Love love love


    The Ultra facial cream is too rich for me, this product is perfect for my oily combination skin. Moisturising but light, absorbs quickly without being sticky. Will definitely repurchase.
  60. Good Hydration for Combination/Oily Skin Types


    I'm completely hooked on these mostly gel-like (or water-based) moisturizers for my combination skin because they absorb well and simply work. An "oil-free" formula is the best choice for my acne-prone/oily skin issues. Although this product provides good hydration, I'm a little leery of the alcohol and dimethicone in the ingredients though.
  61. Great for oily skin type


    It does the job but I don't really like the scent of the cream.
  62. Excellent Cream!


    I love using this cream in summer when my skin tends to be a little more oily. It's lightweight and feels really hydrating. One of my favourite face gels!
  63. wow


    i love this moisturiser! i have oily skin and most moisturisers feel too heavy and greasy. this one isnt, and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and fresh!
  64. Love this product!


    This is such a lovely moisturiser that is great for my dry acne-prone skin. It is light and very hydrating and doesn't make me break out. It's also very affordable which is great!

    I have sensitive combination skin & this is by far the best moisturiser I have ever used. Skin feels hydrated and it doesn't make my skin oily. I hope they never stop making this!
  67. Love this moisturiser

    Beccy via kiehls.com.au

    I've been using this moisturiser for a few years now, best moisturiser for my oily skin i can find and I've tried many different brands. Great light feel and absorbs immediately! :)
  68. Great for oily skin

    Casslady via kiehls.com.au

    I have fairly oily skin and struggle with using moisturisers that make my skin worse. This one is one of the better moisturisers I've used. Lighter than the others Kiehl's has and notice my skin is smoother after using for a few weeks
  69. Highly effective

    OzKitty via kiehls.com.au

    I have been using this moisturizer for approximately 2 years now and am so pleased with it. Even though I am 50 years old, a lot of moisturisers are too heavy for my skin and make me break out . This one keeps my skin soft and smooth without any complications.
  70. Great for combination skin

    Leliza via kiehls.com.au

    I was a little worried that I wouldn’t like the gel consistency. But this moisturizer is great. I have combination skin with an oily t zone. I normally find that my makeup is shiny by the end of the day. But using this moisturiser with the oil free cleanser reduces the shine. Once it dries it makes your skin feel really soft and smooth. My makeup sits well on top of it.
