The Beauty Edit: Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

The Beauty Edit is a weekly column featuring all the hero products the Your Coffee Break beauty team just cannot live without. With a market saturated with products, let us navigate you through the very best of the best.

This time of year is a stalwart for suffering skin. Weeks of excess have left their mark and what little goodness is left is sucked right out of our skin by the central heating, leaving our skins feel as though it’s been stretched across our face. We’ve been disheartened many a time by the promise of well balanced hydration, receiving instead too thick, pore clogging creams that leave a distinctive shine yet somehow still leave our skin dry. Enter Kiehls with their Ultra Facial Cream, offering much more than just surface hydration…

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream

The simple, unassuming packaging may not be as glossy as some of its luxe counterparts, looking like it would more at home in your medicine cabinet, but what it lacks in panache it more than makes up for in results.

The cream was formulated to improve softness, smoothness and radiance whilst keeping skin moisturised over a 24hr period. With a surprisingly light texture, the Ultra Facial Cream sinks easily and quickly into the skin, providing 24hr hydration with continuous water replenishment throughout the day. And no one could ever accuse Kiehls of not going the extra mile, having tested in the product in the harshest of weather climates, the North Pole. With proven hydration capabilities in even subarctic temperatures, the cream is the perfect antidote for the constant weather upheavals we face on a daily basis.
