Review: Kiehls Super Multi-Corrective Cream
This is one of my favorite moisturizers on the market. This Kiehls cream is a medium weight moisturizer that melts easily into the skin. I have your basic normal skin - neither dry nor oily - and it gives me the perfect level of moisture without feeling greasy. I apply it after my serum and before my sunscreen and it sits nicely sandwiched between the two with no beading or nastiness. It is marketed as an anti-ager, but I don't really think it makes much of a difference on aging skin. If you want anti-aging starpower ingredients, use a peptide and antioxidant serum underneath this so you can get a concentrated dose. This as a moisturizer is really suitable for all ages. It has some botanical ingredients that Kiehls claims have firming effects but I'm skeptical about the utility of those. What you may notice is that this does give your skin a subtly plumped out effect because your skin is well-hydrated. It's remarkably difficult to find moisturizers that get that balance just right, and this one does. The only thing I don't care for with this product is the packaging. I always prefer skincare that comes in a pump rather than a jar because with the jar you are introducing bacteria every time you scoop some out. That can be a problem for the acne prone, and it can also damage any active ingredients in the product. That being said, I'd buy it again. The price is not terrible - I paid $62 for this 1.7 oz jar and it's likely to last me six months.
