Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser

I’ve been pretty loyal to my Origins Checks and Balances Cleanser for months now; infact I rarely ever stray from it. However the skin care obsessive in me wanted to try something different, cleansers are my favourite when it comes to skin care products, so with my current cleanser running low I picked up the Kiehls Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser (£15), one of the brands best selling products.

It has everything I look for when I purchase a new cleanser - it's oil free, has no fragrance and controls shine by reducing oil on the skins surface. Packed with lovely ingredients such as Lemon Extract, this cleanser helps to remove impurities and deep clean congested skin, while leaving the complexion looking more balanced. The lightweight formula is sulphate free and non stripping, which leaves the skin feeling impeccably clean and fresh without that over dying and tight feeling that you can often get from using foam cleansers. Some can really strip the skin of moisture, but this one just leaves my skin feeling so soft and super cleansed.

I've been using this in the mornings and as my second cleanser in the evenings after using a cleansing balm first to remove my make up. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and revived, and gets rid of any remaining dirt and grime. My skin wasn't bad before, but after the first few days I noticed such a difference in my skin; it looked brighter and so much more refined. The clogged pores on my nose and chin are my biggest skin complaint, so I was impressed at how much clearer and smoother my skin looked in such a short period of time. I didn’t notice much of a difference in terms of oil control between this and my last cleanser, which isn't a bad thing - I was happy that this cleanser was just as effective at regulating oil production as the Origins cleanser. 

Overall, this is a great cleanser that does an incredible job decongesting my skin and controlling oil, therefore making my skin balanced and clear. This is the perfect cleanser if, like me, you have combination/oily skin. I think it's worthy of the price too as you only need a tiny amount and the big tube means it will last me quite some time. I’m so pleased with it!

Have you tried this cleanser?
