- Nordstrom User

smooth and not heavy or greasy

- Nordstrom User



i love the belif moisturizer for the night and i love wearing this moisturizing during the day

- Sephora User

i have received this twice as a sample and i save this ultra rich cream for those special stubborn dry spots that pop up in the winter and it works like a dream every time

- Birchbox User



no rough spots, just smooth, soft skin

- Birchbox User

no fluff, a little goes a (moderately) long way, doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, hydrates insanely well for how light the consistency is

- Birchbox User



this face cream is perfect to use it as a night cream; you'll wake up with a fully moisturized, bright and soft face

- Birchbox User

my face is brighter and has the healthy-looking because of this "ultra facial cream"

- Nordstrom User


redness relief

i pair this with the line reducing texture serum and i am absolutely amazed by the results

- Sephora User

my skin is very dry and very sensitive and red, i have purchased so many creams trying to find one that helps with all 3 and this is one of my favorites

- Sephora User

uneven skintone

evens out skin

i put it on before bed and after i wash my face in the morning and it keeps me hydrated all day, even when my skin is dry/sunburned

- Sephora User

my skin-tone has evened out, my skin is smooth and dewy, my cheap(er) foundation is staying on all day and looks just as good quality as an expensive one, and more importantly, my skin is no where near tight, even after nine hours working in an air conditioned shop every day

- Kiehl's User


good for acne

no break outs and not greasy

- Nordstrom User

this is the only moisturizer i have ever used that leaves my skin feeling soft, not oily, and does not make me breakout

- Kiehl's User



i’ve bought this 5-6 times now and it’s become my go-to fave cream - i use other serums and treatments for anti-aging and brightening, and use this last (or sometimes before an oil)

- Spacenk User

it is a great aging cream and leaves skin bright, moist and flawless

Tried something new & SO happy I did!

I have dry, very sensitive skin, and often had a difficult time keeping it hydrated and battled breakouts and imperfections, etc. I used to spend a lot of money on 3Lab HydraVita to get my skin to balance out. I loved it (and recommend that too if you have dry, sensitive skin like me!), but it takes a BIG chunk out of my wallet since I'm in graduate school and on a pretty small stipend. Because of this, I wanted to try something new and so scoured the internet to find something that would be safe for my sensitive skin (I am not about bringing back the pimples) but still very hydrating for my dry skin. I took a chance on this and I'm very happy I did. It's more affordable than what I was using and has worked very well so far. It is thicker to the touch, but once on and rubbed in, it really doesn't feel heavy. I WILL say, that I understand why some reviews mention it feels sticky. IT DOES when you first try it if you've been using other lotion. Give it a couple days and it won't feel like that anymore, you'll adjust. I also am not sure that it will lost as long as my former moisturizer (which lasted about 6 months), but I would still think that this is going to last for a few months so it's still a great deal. Overall, my skin feels very soft, I haven't broken out, AND I have to mention that I live in Georgia and I'm saying this in the heat and humidity of the summer (so don't be afraid if you're not living in a cold climate - it's still ok for hotter weather). I will definitely use this again. If you're thinking about it and unsure, I would really recommend that you take the chance on this. FYI if you also like to wear a sunscreen over it, I still use 3Labs sunscreen over it and it's still not that heavy (to me at least). « less

Not For Me

Tried this out because I've been trying everything to help even out redness on my face. This works well for hydrating, but leaves skin looking oily for a good bit after. Also, it reacted with my sensitive skin (maybe my facial cleanser?) and left my face looking HORRIBLE. I mean, super red, irritated, oily, made me break out...it wasn't pretty to say the least. When I put it on, it would sting my face - that was the first clue that this wasn't going to work for me. Once I switched products, my complexion evened out again. It does what it says it'll do, which is hydrate your face, but this wasn't for me.

Soothed my super dry skin

I have combination skin - my forehead gets incredibly oily, my cheeks can get slightly dry, and my nose is somehow simultaneously dry and oily. My nose is often red and irritated with constant dry, peeling skin but will get oily throughout the day.I used to use Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer. It was sufficient during the warmer periods of the year, but I noticed it wasn't heavy duty enough once it started getting cold. I feel like the UF Moisturizer was also bit on the greasier side, so I'd end up using a second moisturizer for my forehead.I was running low on the moisturizer and decided it would be a good time to try a different product. I was debating between the Ultra Facial Cream and the Skin Rescuer and ultimately decided on the UF Cream because there were great reviews and the price point was a bit better.I've used it for about a week now and my dry skin is completely gone. What I would do is apply a generous layer over the dry spots after washing my face. I let it sink in for a few minutes (it will sting at first as your skin is healing) and then I'll spread it over the rest of my face. There is still some redness but that seems to be slowly fading as well. This formula doesn't feel greasy like the UF Moisturizer so I don't have to use a second moisturizer.Overall, incredibly happy with the results. It's definitely worth the money. This will be my go-to moving forward. « less

I've finally landed on the perfect facial moisturizer!!

I have tried anything and everything from high end moisturizers and creams to even drugstore brands. I've tried moisturizers/creams from Clinique, Darphin, Shiseido, Lancome, Dior, philosophy, Origins, and a lot of other Asian cosmetic brands.I thought my skin was weird because I just couldn't find the right type of moisturizer that my skin feels comfortable after application, not feeling too oily or wet or dry. I have slightly dry skin on the forehead and on the edges of my face and combination skin around the nose and cheek area.I love this Ultra facial cream because it works for me. It's not greasy, it not heavy at all, it's light but very moisturizing. This cream absorbs VERY WELL.I was actually disappointed with Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer despite all the raving reviews about it because it felt heavy on my skin and kinda greasy too. However, a Kiehl's sales associated strongly recommended the Ultra Facial Cream and I've finally settled on my holy grail moisturizer. They call it a cream but I use it everyday at any time of the day. Morning and night, underneath makeup, etc. It doesn't have a distinct smell like the Ultra Facial Moisturizer so don't worry about it for those people who are sensitive to smell/fragrances.At least give this facial cream a try with a sample because I think this is a fantastic moisturizer. « less

Does anyone have any recommendations for affordable moisturizers for combination/ acne prone skin? My skin is pretty sensitive and will become super oily to heavy moisturizers but right now during winter months my skin is incredibly dry.
