Moisturize to the extreme. To prove the effectiveness of its Ultra Facial Cream‘s hydrating formula, Kiehl’s sent it to explorer Doug Stoup in the North Pole to put it to the test in temperatures as low as -43 degrees C. The result?  “This formula helped my face feel moisturized under such extreme conditions and this hydration helped me look 10 years younger,” he said.

If it’s good enough for the North Pole, it’ll be just as effective in Hong Kong’s weather. Developed eight years ago, this hydrating moisturising cream has a cult following of celeb fans like Cameron Diaz, Olivia Palermo, Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, and Alanis Morissette.

What is it?

This moisturising cream offers much more than just surface hydration; it goes deep down to improve skin softness, smoothness and radiance. In a clinical study, Ultra Facial Cream improved radiance by 32%, softness by 54%, and smoothness by 42%.

How it works?

Key ingredients like Antarcticine (a glacial glycoprotein sourced in Antarctica), Imperata Cylindrica (a desert plant extract found in the Australian Outback), Squalane, Avocado Oil and Tocopherol (vitamin E) absorb deep into skin to keep it moisturised around the clock. Water in skin is replenished throughout the day, leaving skin visibly well balanced. It also helps to reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air.

Why we like it?

We like this moisturiser because 1) it keeps skin visibly hydrated with improved softness, smoothness and radiance 2) it is a light-texture cream that goes on comfortably 3) it works even in the harshest weather conditions 4) Results are evident in just four weeks.
