Keeping skin healthy and hydrated is very important, especially during winter months. Chilly weather can do a number on a girl’s skin if she’s not prepared! So it was great to see that my assignment this month was to review Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, a moisturizer especially designed to help skin combat wintery weather. With extracts from glacial glycoproteins and desert plants, this daily facial moisturizer aims to keep skin moisturized 24 hours a day, reducing moisture loss and drawing moisture from the air to your skin at the same time. When I received my sample I thought this is great to use when it’s cold outside….
But wait a minute….I live in Florida.
How was I gonna test this bad boy out to its full potential when our winter is 80 degrees?
Either the Man upstairs heard me or Yahoo Shine has great timing, because no sooner did I get into the swing of using my new product, an artic blast hit Florida, sending the temps down as low as the mid 30’s for the past two weeks! (BRRR cold for us down here!)
So how did this product hold up as a moisturizer?
I like it! I have combination to oily skin, so I have to use very little of it, so my face doesn’t get too greasy. My skin stayed soft and hydrated throughout the day. I would definitely use it, especially when I travel to places with even colder temps.
So, you ask, what do I love about it? It works wonders as a foot moisturizer! Unlike my face, my feet can get really dry, requiring several applications of lotion throughout the day. Using the Kiehl’s on my feet worked wonders so I will definitely look into their foot creams!
