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 5 out of 5 by Feels luxurious on the skin! Great moisture but feels quite light. This cream feels so wonderful on my face. Although it feels heavy on your fingers when you put it on your face and blend it into your skin it actually goes on quite light but with the immediate feeling of moisture. My skin was getting dry from the onset of winter-like weather and I needed a more moisturizing cream. When I picked this up I was worried that it would be too heavy but it is perfect and actually has a lasting feeling of just the right amount of moisture on my face all day! Love it. 24/11/14
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Moisturizer Great moisturizer especially for the dry winter weather in Calgary! I have recently started the Ultra facial cleanser, toner and moisturizer and have noticed such a huge difference to my super sensitive skin. 17/11/14
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for me I received samples of the ultra facial cream with my last Kiehl's purchase... and as much as I wanted to love it, I couldn't. Yes, it is great at keeping your skin hydrated for the whole day. However... it left my skin tingly (not the good minty kind, but the bad burny kind) and reddened for ~5min after applying. I got three uses out of the little sample, and this happened every time! The discomfort right after applying isn't worth it for me even though it is so so moisturizing. I suppose the skin on my face just cannot agree with it. Oh well. 27/10/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to moisturizer I'm always trying other products but this one is always on hand and never fails me. I love the texture and how it feels on my skin. It gives a nice dewy glow and keeps my dry skin feeling hydrated. 12/08/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Skin LOVES This! My hubby gave me a jar of this for Christmas after a few not-so-subtle hints. ;) I had been a devotee of Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizer for years. While I liked the Clinique product, I realized it contained Mineral Oil and for various reasons that just didn't jive with me. It also pilled up if I put make up on after application. Enter Ultra Facial Cream! My skin drinks it up like water and loves it like it's a glass of fine wine! ;) It truly is a wonderful product for me. I love the texture, the very faint scent and the way it evens out my skin tone. At night, I apply it after using Kiehl's Midnight Recovery and by morning, my skin is glowing and ready to take on the day! I think the key ingredient that works for me is Squalene. Before using this, I rarely would go out of the house without a light foundation. Thanks to this, I am confident in my own skin. I just dab on a bit of lip gloss and take on the world! Thanks Kiehl's! 09/08/14

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Moisturizer I've ever used. I love everything about this product. It glides across my skin leaving the perfect barrier. The product lasts because a little goes a long way. I have purchased this product for friends and I have recommended it often. I can't imagine why I would ever stop using it. 30/07/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm hooked! After using expensive department store products, I decided to try Kiehl's. This was one of my first products and I am definitely a fan. Leaves my skin feeling smooth and younger looking. I use it day and night. 09/07/14
