Antarcticine, sourced from Antarctica, is a glycoprotein* that has demonstrated many unique benefits when used in skincare formulas. With superb protection against dryness, Antarcticine helps hydrate skin and provides it with a noticeably smoother appearance while shielding skin from the damaging effects of free-radicals. It further helps to protect skin from extremely cold temperatures, facilitating skin’s retention of natural water reserves. The organic substance thrives in the most extreme environmental conditions as a result of the cryoprotective (protection against freezing) properties of the molecule.

*A glycoprotein is a macromolecule composed of a protein and a carbohydrate (an oligosaccharide).

The Imperata Cylindrica plant thrives in dry, excessively saline environments and is native to many of Earth’s deserts, but is especially prolific in the Australian Outback. Imperata Cylindrica’s roots contain high concentrations of potassium which provides an immediate and lasting hydrating effect. In our formulation, Imperata Cylindrica helps skin to store and retain moisture efficiently – even in the driest weather conditions. It is believed that indigenous Australians of centuries past used the desert plant as a substitute for salt, due to its high saline content.


A healing botanical lipid with a high affinity for skin to instantly restore and replenish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by It's okay at best After reading these rave reviews I decided to pull the string on purchasing this moisturizer. I was reluctant at first because I was never the type of person to invest that much more for skin products. I was excited at first to receive the product and try at it on. My first impression was that it was great. It seemed to effectively moisturize my skin while having a light consistency. I felt it also smoothed my skin out a little bit. However, after months of using it, I've grown to dislike the product. It makes my skin excessively oily - even more so than it does naturally. Lately I've been using a L'OREAL moisturizer that my sister gave me. It gets the job done just as effectively without making my skin oily. It's nothing fancy and it makes me really question on what I had purchased. At this point, I am only using the Kiehl's moisturizer to get rid of it. I am not sure if I'll make another purchase. 22/01/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved My Skin! Over the years I've tried 50+ different products trying to treat my dry/flaky skin. Nothing worked, that is, until I found this Ultra Facial Cream. I'd been on the fence for over two years about trying this product. I'm a poor college student and wasn't sure shelling out 50 dollars for a tiny jar of facial cream would be worth it. It was. I've had it since July '15 and am just now getting to the bottom of the jar. I recommend this to anyone who struggles with dry skin. This cream moisturizes all day for me and keeps my skin looking healthy and fresh! 22/01/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST MOISTURIZER! This moisturizer is everything. I've been using it for about a month and it is drier than ever in Texas during the winter. I usually apply a basic moisturizer at night and feel fine but then the next day my face is cracked and dry again. Not with the ultra facial cream. My face feels just as moisturized the next day and feels so hydrated. I will never use anything else! 13/01/16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Skincare Staple If you don't own this product, stop what you're doing and go buy it! This is the BEST facial cream I have ever owned. It is so gentle on my sensitive skin and is part of my daily skin regimen. The texture is thin enough without being runny, and has never clogged or irritated my skin. I use this daily prior to applying my makeup and even on days when the makeup stays in the bag! 28/12/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't live with out this I've been using this for years, I love this lotion. 27/12/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go-to for winter This truly is a great moisturizer. I put on a generous amount before going out in the morning (without feeling like it's too greasy or heavy!), and occasionally apply a little extra to my dry patches sometime in the afternoon. My skin hasn't had any of the usual dryness flare-ups that winter usually brings. 17/12/15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product! My entire family is using this product: my mother, two aunts and every one I can think of... Everyone loves it and my father even loves it... (Not sure it's a good thing or not...) With such a great cream, the price is extremely reasonable too! I would strongly recommend this product to any ONE! 11/12/15
Rated 5 out of 5 Versatile, oil-free, quick absorbing moisturizer I'm a guy and wanted something I can just put on and forget. I also wanted the product to be quick absorbing. I hate products that leaves a greasy film after a few hours. Before using this product I was using another drugstore brand, its works well but runs out very quickly thus it was very expensive to buy. Then I tried this product. This is my first Kiehls product. At first, I didn't really notice anything significant, it performed like most moisturizers I've used in the past. However, after using the cream for 4 days I noticed my face was a lot softer and was felt more hydrated overall. The cream also absorbs very quickly, within seconds. The cream seems to last longer than the previous product I was using, even for 1.7 oz. This means I don't have to stock up as often and for the price it is a great purchase. 05/12/15
