      I have been testing out this product for a few weeks now, day and night. I have to say that so far I am pretty satisfied. It hydrates well and controls the oil on my forehead. In fact, I think it might control it a bit too much. Maybe it's just me and I'm getting used to this moisturizer, because it isn't a thick moisturizer, but I feel that my forehead feels a tad bit tight after applying it. My forehead doesn't get dry, it just feels a tiny bit tight. This is not deterring me though from continuing to use the product as my forehead doesn't get dry. I am very happy that when I wakeup in the morning, I don't have dry flakes on my face, so it definitely hydrates throughout the night! I have noticed, as others have pointed out, that after applying it, my face feels a bit tacky. I think this is a result of some of the ingredients but again, it doesn't deter me. I just wait for it to fully soak in for about 5-10 minutes and then I'll apply my Bare Minerals makeup without any issue. I don't use a primer for my makeup as I feel a good moisturizer can substitute as a primer and the less I put on my face, the better. So if I can eliminate a primer and just use this moisturizer, I'm set. As far as my acne, I feel it hasn't caused any new breakouts. Even though I've only been using it for a few weeks, I feel like this moisturizer has great potential for those with acne-prone skin. I personally fluctuate between oily and combination skin (depending on the time of year) and I currently have about 1-2 active pimples on my face that are pretty small as well as some acne scars, and this moisturizer hydrates well and is not causing more breakouts. Maybe with continued use it will improve my skin and help even out my skin tone? I feel like there is only one way to find out and that is to continue using this product for a good month and see how things go. But so far, I am not dissatisfied. I do feel that if the tightness continues to bother me, I might pick up the regular Ultra Facial Moisturizer and try that one out. But for an oil-free version, this one is a great pick! On a side note, I also wanted to mention the price. I purchased the 4.2oz bottle for $26. I honestly feel that the price is worth it! Before, I was using a Yes To Carrots moisturizer that is only 1.7oz for about $15. For about $11 more, this is definitely worth the price as I'm getting more than double what I was getting before.

      This is a poor replacement for the Sodium PCA Oil Free Moisturizer. It leaves my skin sticky. I feel like there is a layer of film on my face all day. I've used 1/2 the bottle hoping I would get used to it, but have decided to use the rest of the bottle on my hands or legs (either that or throw it away). PLEASE return the Sodium PCA Oil Free Moisturizer!!!!!

        I have been dealing with acne for 10 years (I have been on Accutane twice) but because of my acne struggle, I was looking for something light and oil free. I have combination skin, and this is good for oily as well as dry. I find that it does mattify and does not dry out the skin while doing so. The biggest issue I have with this is that it crumbles if put on skin that is even the slightest bit moist. I have to wait until my skin is 100% dry to avoid this which is annoying because I put moisturizer on immediately after toner!

        This lotion is very greasy. I think it is absorbed poorly.

        I've been using this moisturizer for practically forever. I initially loved it, because it was great for my puberty years, because it didn't clog my pores and kept my production of oil to a minimum. However, now I'm finding that it's just okay. It doesn't really do miracles for my skin--I have to use a serum underneath to really feel a difference in my skin texture. However, I do have to reiterate that this doesn't break me out and I haven't noticed me getting super oily.

            Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion:

            I never used a Kiehl's product until I bought this moisturizer over almost 2 years ago. I always used moisturizers for extra dry skin, thinking that's what I needed. I went to get a facial, and the woman told me I need to use oil free moisturizers in order for my skin to clear up. I started using this and it really worked. I went from frequent breakouts to just a pimple every once in a while. Would definitely recommend. The price seems high compared to drug store products, but I really only buy one every six months so it's not bad for the quality.

                I live in California with weather in the 80's. This works great with my sun screen. It's light and doesn't clog pores (I have oily skin).

                FINALLY A MOISTURIZER FOR MY OILY SKIN

                By

                Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion:

                It works! I have skin that is VERY sensitive to products with even the smallest amount oil in them. Even when using other oil-free moisturizers (Olay, Neutrogena, etc.) my skin would break out and become even more oily throughout the day. I use this moisturizer after the Calendula Herbal Extract Toner, and my skin feels amazing and oil-free ALL DAY. I am so relieved to have found this product.

                    Wow- I was very pleasantly surprised to use this after getting a packet sample. This is so lightweight but extremely hydrating, it's very refreshing and it felt like a cool and moisturizing treat for my face. I wouldn't have normally targeting a oil-free moisturizer but using this stuff was an awesome pick me up. You can layer it over existing moisturizer for a added splash of hydration or mix your sunscreen with it for a light, daily wear. I found myself applying some mid-day on top of my SPF moisturizer as an added shot of hydration. Kiehls doesn't have an oil-free SPF daily moisturizer, so I use a small amount of Facial Fuel SPF 50 and mix it with this for an oil-free daily protection. You could also mix this with a heavier moisturizer to get a good balance of hydration and moisture. This stuff is great for teens or acne prone adults, it's light, no scent and super refreshing.

                    Best Oil-Free Moisturizer

                    Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion:

                    I personally like this oil-free moisturizer over the gel version. I love how light this product feels on my skin and how well it controls my oil production. The only thing I wish is that it came in a jar instead. You'll notice a little goes a long way, so even though there is only one size for this product, that is probably all you'll need for a good while.
