Ultra Facial Cream

Leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced.
Inspired by our original, beloved Ultra Facial Moisturizer, this 24-hour, light-textured daily hydrator leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced, particularly in harsh weather conditions. Our formula is made with Antarcticine–a Glycoprotein extracted from microorganisms sourced from sea glaciers and notable for an ability to protect skin from cold temperatures–as well as Imperata Cylindrica, a plant indigenous to the Australian desert which possesses superb water retention properties in dry conditions. Our unique combination of ingredients helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. With continuous water replenishment throughout the day, skin is smooth, healthy-looking, and "moisture-even."

Kiehl’s was honored to lend support and protection from the elements to the heroic team of the “Greenland First Ascent” expedition. The six explorers completed the first-ever ascent of Greenland’s ice covered peaks on May 30th 2005.

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.

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 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by like this product but would like to try the intense facial cream Have used this cream for a long time and have been satisfied with it. I liked this product and have used it for a long time. The price is good and I do like the texture of it. I still continue to experience some dry spots so would like to try the intense facial cream which might do the trick. 06/07/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! I've been using it for over 8 years, I've combination skin and I find this product is good for all year round. I use it along with the toner 2 times a day. Will totally recommend this product! 04/07/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Moisturizing Cream I love this cream! This is in my regular rotation. I love it in the winter months, I'm in Canada so that's about half the year. It absorbs quickly, it's not greasy, and doesn't make my sometimes oily t-zone area oily looking. Highly recommended. Great value for the price. 03/07/14
