Shine-free since ’93

If you liked the Kiehl’s post I wrote last week, but your skin would prefer something a little less rich, today’s product is for you.

The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream offers fresh hydration for normal to oily skin types, intensely moisturising and conditioning skin with a fresh texture.

Formulated with Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine to help skin retain moisture, it quickly absorbs into skin, with an instant cooling effect upon application.

It gives hydration and shine control. It’s also Oil-free, Paraben-free, Silicone-free, Fragrance-free, Non-comedogenic and Allergy-tested.

Job done.
