Review: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Skincare Set

Hello loves!  Continuing on the second part. You can read the first part (here) where I was introduced to this skincare set and also introduced to their new and improved formula of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream! All you need to know about Kiehl's and their history is in the first part of the post. So make sure you check that one out first before continuing reading this one! Its okay, I will wait ;) 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser (150ml) RM85
This is a quick lathering cleansing foam that thoroughly removes impurities and visibly reduces excess oil on our skin’s surface. It also  leaves our skin looking more balanced.  It contains two main ingredients which are Imperata Cylindrica (desert plan) plan and Lemon Fruits Extracts. Both ingredients are a non-stripping and sulfate-free formula that leaves skin clean and refreshed without over drying it as it takes away all the oils away. The lemon acts as an antiseptic quality that freshens, stimulates and rejuvenates sluggish. It also gives a cooling, refreshing and uplifting feeling. Its also suitable for sensitive skin as its very gentle. My skin is sensitive and if I can use it, I think you can too. Its also oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free. Just squeeze out a small amount of product and lather it with water and gentle massage your whole face. 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner (250ml) RM85
Its formulated to visibly reduce excess oil on our skin’s surface while leaving your skin instantly fresh and healthy looking. The two main ingredients in the toner are again, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine that soothes and hydrates the skin. The non-drying alcohol-free formula gently removes any remaining makeup residue, dirt and oil without stripping away the moisture. Its oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and colorant-free and also PH-balanced and tested for safety and gentleness. Pour it on a cotton pad and gently swipe it across your face. Super gentle for sensitive skin and doesn't make your face feel tight or sticky. 

Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream (50ml) RM100
A refreshing new formula that conditions normal to oily skin for 24 hours of clean-feeling hydration. Its formulated with moisture replenishing Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract and Antarcticine to help skin retain moisture plus skin fresheners to invigorate skin’s look and feel. With daily usage, this virtually weightless gel cream minimizes the appearance of oil, making skin more resistant to daily shine and greasiness. With a burst of fresh, long-lasting hydration, the new formula strengthens normal to oily skin’s moisture barrier leaving it smooth, velvety soft and shine free. Its also oil-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free and colorant-free. Suitable for day night use as its weightless and absorbs face into your skin leaving your skin looking matte and fresh but at the same time, moisturized. 

Here you can see that the moisturizer does increase your moisture level despite it being lightweight and takes away all the shine.

Likes: After a month (sort of) of using this skincare set, I do noticed that my oiliness and shine throughout the day is not as bad as before. Though the shine test showed that I'm not normal to oily but I do still consider myself as having a really oily skin but like I said, I did notice some significant difference. The cleanser takes away all the oil but it doesn't leave your skin feeling tight and the toner is so gentle to my skin. All products doesn't have any significant smell. And also, love the packaging and the blue theme that they got going on! 

Dislike: However, I don't actually like the feeling after cleansing. Though it doesn't dry out my skin at all, it does leave an unpleasant feeling. But it could have been just me. 

Overall: A perfect skincare regime for oily skin people. Not only does it keeps your shine at bay, it also slowly reducing the shine but at the same time, giving your skin the moisture that it needs. The moisturizer is super lightweight, cooling and moisturizing. Everything absorbs fast into your skin and you are left with a fresh and shine-less face. Use it continuously for maximum result and be prepared to have a normal skin. Say bye-bye to oily! 
Disclaimer: Attended the Kiehl's Fun In The Sun event and they were nice enough to give the skincare set for us to try and experience the goodness of the moisturizer with the new formula but that doesn't affect my reviews and opinions regarding it. As always, I'm being 100% honest. (Panjang pula disclaimer kali ni, ahaks!)
