Kiehl’s – the iconic American skincare brand is much favoured by celebrities and models. Founded in 1851, the brand relies on cutting-edge beauty treatments and utilitarian design. Known for its miracle products such as the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and their Corrective Dark Spot Treatment, they’ve launched the Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration.
Much like my hair, my skin has decided to have a life of its own this season. My usual combination skin has turned dry and it required a much needed glug of moisture. I decided to try Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration. True to the Kiehl’s design philosophy – it’s completely utilitarian.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration promises benefits within 7 days and I’ve been using it for more than that and the results are quite visible. I like that it is easily absorbed into the skin and does not feel heavy or like you’re wearing a moisturiser. It was so light-weight that I decided to mix it with my favourite BB cream and applied to my face for a dewy appearance.
The key ingredient is Enriched Hyaluronic Acid, a co-encapsulation of two hydrating molecules that work to complement each other and provide powerful, multi-action hydration benefits. This co-encapsulation is designed to “break” upon application to skin to deliver concentrated hydration pockets, providing immediate moisture that leaves skin hydrated for 24 hours. The result is an increase in the skin’s ability to capture moisture in the outermost layer of the epidermis, “filling the cracks” of dry skin.
The cream is priced at ₹2,100.
