Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser Review

I got a sample of this. I haven’t even used it up and I’ve had it for a very long time. My first impression after reading the ingredients was: Is this a mask or a cleanser? It has kaolin to absorb oil but it’s going to be on my skin for like, a second.. I don’t.. understand.


It has the same consistency as that Neutrogena mask and cleanser 2 in 1. I used it a couple times but I really don’t like it. I find this product strips my skin way too much and takes a ton of water just to get it off. Even then, I’m left with a whitish residue on my face and dry patches everywhere – and my skin is oily! Very oily! I used it a lot during the humid summer but my skin just rebelled afterwards. I’m shocked it says for normal to oily skin on the package. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone with normal skin at all. One look at the ingredients should tell you to stay far, far away. Ouch, lemon extract. I had to slather on a lot of moisturizer after washing with this cleanser. The only plus is it lathers well.
