      I was recommended this by a saleswoman at my local Kiehls as I for some reason have recently had very dry and red skin around my nose and mouth. Used a little bit in just the affected are, and when I woke up the next morning my skin was completely healed, no redness or dryness at all, after only ONE use. Amazing product for the transition into the colder weather. Will definitely keep using this!

      This is a good salve for sensitive skin, however in my experience it is primary for sensitive skin that is prone to dryness, redness or recovery from cold weather. It is only mildly effective in addressing these conditions. This salve didn't have any positive effects on my sensitive acne prone skin and I haven't noticed a difference when using it after receiving a facial. The texture is slightly sticky when first applied to the skin, however after about 10 minutes of absorbing it leaves the skin feels soft. After 20 minutes though it doesn't feel like I have put anything nourishing on the skin, so it doesn't have the longevity that I hoped it would.

      Unfortunately, while it did help with my redness, I did not notice a noticeable difference on my skin and have had to reapply the salve a couple of times throughout the day as needed. It does not have the soothing effect that I receive from most other Kiehl's products. Furthermore, because of the texture, it is best used at night as a whole face treatment or during the day on areas where needed.

      For a product that is soothing and ideal for sensitive skin treatment and also has a salve-like quality, I highly recommend Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream--it has a similar texture to this product, but the calendula leaves my skin will feel soothed and nourished in the morning and has an overall higher performance than this product.

      Saves Lives

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Centella Recovery Skin Salve:

      I tend to have very flaky skin during the winter for some reason and this product saves my life. It doesn't take much to spread a long way, so this bottle will last you forever! I also like to use this on my neck while I sleep after shaving. It really helps to prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs.

      My ultimate soother for long-term electrolysis treatments

      By 

      from Arlington, VA

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Centella Recovery Skin Salve:

      I had a hormone imbalance (PCOS) and underwent over 200 hours of electrolysis on my face, one painful hour at a time, which left my skin raw, red, and swollen. Centella was the ONLY lotion that cooled and calmed my skin after those painful treatments. Centella calmed down my raw red skin in minutes, and the next day, I didn't have scabs. Thank you Kiehls.

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Centella Recovery Skin Salve:

      This product works beautifully -- I've gone through a number of dermatology appointments and we've never quite hit on a good solution, so I am surprised that an over-the-counter product would be so effective. But it is. I highly recommend the Centella Recovery Skin Salve.

          I have not used this myself, but I recently gave it to a friend as a gift. She has been taking accutane for acne for several months, which is horribly drying. Her skin was flaky and uncomfortable and for months she could find nothing that would help. I gave her a tube of this about a week ago and yesterday I was deemed a "life saver". She said that the dryness and irritation are almost completely gone. This made my day! I would recommend it to anyone who is dealing with dry, irritated, painful skin.

            I live in the Arizona Mountains where the winters are cold and dry, spring is windy and dry and during summer, until the monsoons hit, the air is dry and the sun intense due to the high altitude. This salve really saves my skin from much of the damage. The price is resaonable. I have never found anything which comes close.

            Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Centella Recovery Skin Salve:

            This is a great healing product for abraded skin, slightly burned skin, rough dry painful skin. I have a medium red head complexion and slightly oily skin without acne. This salve-like moisturizer allows me to use the Kiels Fine Line Vit. C line reducer and exfoliating products as often as needed without worrying that my skin will burn and hurt for a few days. As soon as my skin feels too tender, I switch from my regular Keils moisturizer to this one. I've also used it for a slight sun and wind burn and for a light kitchen burn on my hand! Love, love, love it!

            I have naturally somewhat dry skin, so this salve was great for me! The facial regiment that my dermatologist has me doing goes well with this salve! It is a bit intense, so if you have oily skin, I might pass on this!

            Love, love, love this moisturizer - use it during all seasons! The texture is great, and it is not too greasy (although my skin is a little dry). Would not recommend it for oily skin probably.
