Hello lovelies,

Previously I had posted that I wanted to score an invitation to have Fun in the Sun with Kiehl’s. (Previous post) Boy oh boy, I was invited. Yaay! Thank you Butterfly Project Malaysia and Kiehl’s for having me. I had a great Sunday morning learning more about Kiehl’s new Ultra Facial Oil-Free Skin care range.




The event took place in The Secret Garden (not so secret anymore since I telling you about it now. Haha!) on the Roof Top on One Utama. The Secret Garden was amazingly beautiful, lushful with greeneries and it felt magical indeed. The morning sun was up, I felt a bit warm but my eyes feasted on such beautiful sight of trees, flowers, succulents and there were even little ponds with lotus flowers.

As we arrived, we met Mr.Bone which gracefully let us sign autographs on him. Then, a little walk through the beautiful garden and we were introduced to Kiehl’s newest innovation: The Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream is a new, refreshing, non-sticky formula that conditions normal to oily skin for full 24 hours of fresh feeling hydration. It is also fragrance-free and will not leave a residue minimizes the appearance of shine.

Its lightweighted formula contains natural plant-based ingredients that provide balance between shine and moisture. With moisture retained, the skin will be more balanced. Hence, the reduced appearance of shine. Oily skin often makes pores appears more pronounced. With Kiehl’s innovative Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, less shine means pores appears smaller.


The Secrets is out!

In my instagram feed (follow me!), I have also posted a picture of my cute cactus terrarium that I built on my own during the Fun in the Sun with Kiehl’s event.

The activity was actually to introduce us to one of the main ingredients for Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream:  Imperata Cylindrica – a type succulent plant that thrives in dry, excessively saline environments and is native to many of Earth deserts especially in the Australian outback. Kiehl’s has extracted its root that contains high concentrations of potassium and the root extract helps provide an immediate and lasting hydrating effect.

Other ingredients includes Antarcticine, a glycoprotein from Antartica that provides superb protection from dryness and helsp hydrates skin, providing it with a noticebly smoother appearance while shielding the skin from external aggressors. It further helps to protect the skin by facilitating skin’s retention of natural water reserves.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream also contains Glycerin an essential ingredient that attracts and pulls moisture from air to replenish and hydrate skin. Hence, this is the key for a long 24 hours hydrating power.


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration is allergy-tested and formulated without parabens, silicones, frafrance, colorants or oil. It is non-comedogenic, perfect for a easily blemished skin like me.

My REVIEW on Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration


Kiehl’s was generous enough to give me a whole Ultra Facial Oil-Free skin care range to try on. I have been using the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream Fresh Hydration for a full fortnight and am really impressed. I have divided my review according to the time frame of trying out this product. I wear this to work, so my skin is exposed to the hot, humid external environment and also the cool, dry air-conditioned indoor office.

Immediate reaction: I love the texture of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. The gel consistency is really light and easily absorbed into my skin only after few seconds applying it. Immediately I noticed how fresh my skin felt, my skin feels well hydrated and supple. It wa not sticky at all.
After long day (at least 12-14hours): My skin felt hydrated and non-oily at all. I didn’t even have to blot my T-zone anymore. This moisturiser works well underneath my daily (light) make up. I felt that the formula which contains a menthol-derivative, provides a refreshing feeling that I love especially at the end of the day.
After 1 week of daily use (twice a day): I felt that my skin is more balanced through out. My skin was highly moisturised. No more of that annoying taut feeling after washing my face.
Conclusion: Awesome moisturiser! excellent for those with normal to oily skin and especially lives in Malaysia or any other tropical countries. I can’t wait to continue using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream for the whole month and watch how it transforms my skin.
