Seeing how globally most of us have normal to oily skin types, Kiehl’s brings in their newest innovation for normal to oily skin types, the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration. Formulated to achieve the fine balance necessary to keep skin looking virtually shine-free for 24 hours, while also maintaining its essential moisture for a full 24 hours of fresh hydration. This lightweight gel-cream is allergy-tested and formulated without parabens, silicones, fragrance, colorants, or oil so it’s suitable for all skin types. It’s also non-comedogenic, so it will not clog pores.
“When caring for oily skin, it is important to strive for balance rather than simply using products to remove oil and degrease the skin,” shares Dr. Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist. “Although it seems counterintuitive, oily skin still needs hydration and protection of its barrier function. I frequently see patients try to reduce oil by over-drying their skin, which often leads to more oil as the skin compensates to protect its essential moisture. A product with an oil-free gel cream formula that does not add oil but maintains moisture is a good foundation for an effective skin care regimen for those with oily skin.”
Comparing to the Ultra Facial Cream, a Kiehl’s worldwide bestseller that offers 24-hour hydration which can be too rich for normal to oily skin types as there’s the need to manage shine along with moisture levels. Hence, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration is created with a refreshing, non-sticky formula that conditions normal to oily skin for a full 24 hours of fresh-feeling hydration. Used daily, this lightweight gel cream minimizes the appearance of shine.
The formula contains moisture-replenishing Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine to help skin retain moisture for a full 24 hours. With moisture retained, the skin will be more balanced and have a reduced appearance of shine. It helps to reduce the appearance of pore size and shine for a full 24 hours. And it has a menthol-derivative which provides a refreshing feeling to the skin.
The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration retails for RM120 (50ml) and is available from June 2017 onwards in Kiehl’s stores nationwide.
