Kiehls Update Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, For 24 Hours Of Shine Free Hydration

Kiehls update Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream and in doing so are helping to continue making the start of 2021 better than the year previous.

This is big news for those who have oily skin because it’s the sister cream to the iconic Ultra Facial Cream, which had its own reformulation back in 2019.

The Ultra Facial Family as a whole have a reputation to make even the driest of skin burst with moisture and if you have oily skin you should know that, it too is a result of dehydration. When it comes to oily skin, an oil free + hydration formula is a winning combination.

So, what did they change?

Well, after being in the market for almost 8 years, Kiehls decided to make this product even more hydrating.

Why?

It’s all to do with the climate. Recent climate research* indicates that the world is getting hotter, more polluted, and more humid. In turn, making the skin appear greasier and more prone to breakouts.

Due to this, Kiehls, decided it was necessary to utilise its newest, most innovative ingredients to give us more hydration whilst sticking to its non-drying, alcohol free formula.

What are those ingredients? Let’s take a look..

Glacial Glycoprotein

This is quite literally derived from sea glaciers. It’a a protein that has a unique ability to thrive in extreme cold conditions, it deeply hydrates skin to help protect and prevent water loss.

Micronised Amino Acid

These help to reduce excessive oil production, minimising the appearance of facial shine and visible pores over time.

The consensus? Based on 60 users this cream reduces the feeling of oiliness by up to 27%, visible shine by up to 24% and pore size appearance by up to 12% in just 14 days.

This is the ultimate cream for those who are in need of some serious hydration without the oil slick that can sometimes be left behind.
