Product Review: Kiehl's Super Multi Corrective Cream


      Up for review today is the Super Multi-Corrective Cream by Kiehls! Since winter is coming in a month or two, I decided to purchase a more hydrating cream (post to come soon about my other new beauty buys for winter). I love skincare by Kiehls and have had good experiences with their products since I was first introduced to the brand in college and used their Ultra Facial Moisturizer. This all in one anti-aging cream claims to lift, smooth, sculpt, retexturize and moisturize skin.

Review

      I absolute adore this moisturizer. I will be honest and say that I was a little hesitant to shell out $62 for a face cream if it didn't give visible results, so I actually was given 3 sample packets to try before I paid for the full size. I justified the price tag because you really do see results in as little as two days. That's right, after two days of using the cream nightly, I could see that the cream helped plump my skin, but what it really did well was smoothed out the surface of my skin. I could really tell the cream was doing something because when I went to splash water over my face in the morning, my skin was baby soft smooth. I don't think I've ever had another face cream that made my skin this smooth. When I looked in the mirror from afar, my skin looked really hydrated and when used with a fermented essence, my skin was essentially glowing. The one con I didn't like about this cream was that it does feel slightly waxy and looks shiny when initially on the skin. I had to give it a good 10 - 15 minutes to really fully sink in and I only used the minimal amount needed. Also that being said, at least you don't have to use much of this face cream to feel the moisturization - a little bit goes a long way.

Concluding Remarks

      I highly recommend this face cream if you're looking for an anti-aging moisturizer that gives you both visible and touchable results in a short time frame. This is an anti-aging moisturizer though, not an anti wrinkle cream (read about the difference here), so I wouldn't expect miracles in that department. The price point is completely worth it, and I don't regret purchasing it. It is definitely way too rich for the warmer months, so if your skin is oily like mine, it's only a valid option for the colder months when you want to protect your skin from the weather. If you have drier skin, you could possibly get away with using this moisturizer all year round!
