I've tried about 10 different BB creams and this one is the total winner! My skin looks and feels flawless. With most bb creams I have to put on concealer or a brush of loose powder to cover blemishes but I didn't need to with this one. It won my heart. If only it came in darker shades...

Love of my life
I love this moisturizer for spring/summer. It gives me enough coverage to feel great about my skin without any other concealer or powder, I also like the SPF (although I wish it was higher) and I love that I can put moisturizer on certain areas before if needed and it blends well. Like other Kiehl's products, it's never caused my sensitive skin to break out nor is the scent unbearable (very mild hint of sunscreen smell). My only con is that it only comes in 2 shades (light and medium) which is why it only gets 9 stars.

I had really high hopes for this BB cream but the cons for me were as followed. Not moisturizing enough, it really made my tiny barely dry patches look flakey and super dry, when I tried putting a smidgen of moisturizer over it it got all pilly and uneven, the color was a little too light and their dark was a little too dark, it didn't blend well near my hairline, I had to run in heels in the heat to make a train and had the tiniest amount of perspiration... This made it pill off and was disgusting. Plus $40 for a tiny 1oz tube was a little discouraging. If you have oily skin I bet this would be a much better product for you. The only pros I have are that the coverage was great, light but enough to cover red spots, imperfections and little freckles I don't like and for the 8 hours I wore it I didn't have any breakouts (my skin usually breaks out with a dozen white heads an hour after using anything harsh or tinted).

I have stick straight thin fine hair, and the ends no matter how often I trim, are fried. This product makes them feel luscious and beautiful again, I'm absolutely sold however... I've noticed (and this could be because my hair is now smooth instead of rough) that attempting to keep a curl is almost impossible after using this stuff. I will be trying JF Full Repair hair spray to see if that helps me maintain my beachy waves but if not.

HOW TO USE!
This is a great general moisturizer that never runs into your eye. (a common problem I've had with past eye creams!) people keep writing how thick it is and it is, but to use correctly:: rub a tiny amount in between your ring fingers, the heat of your skin will make the product seem like water and you just lightly pat around your orbital bone. No tugging required (which over time can cause fine lines). A little goes a loooong way, that's what I love about Kiehl's products... And they work amazingly!

Just what I needed!
I've been prone to blackheads and constant tiny white heads since I was 10 and nothing ever worked to make them disappear overtime never mind in a night. I use this mask twice a week after I steam my face and do some light extraction of any really obvious clogged pores and by morning my skin is so clear I can go makeupless. I use this mask in conjunction with other products from Kiehl's and have never been happier with my skin.

My back up mascara..
I love the way it goes on... And I love the way it looks... However after just a few short hours it surprisingly disappears. I have lash extensions and want my bottom lashes to look full and beautiful like my top lashes, but this mascara just doesn't last for longer than a walk down the street. And if my eyes get watery in anyway, this burns so badly.

I'm 23 with skin that's prone to black heads and white heads and I'm a picker... I tried a sample of this moisturizer and woke up in love with my skin. My white heads and dried blemished healed basically over night. After exfoliating my face my skin had a glow and felt magnificent. I ordered a full size batch off of eBay ($30 vs $45 in store) and have never been happier. I will be switching all of my skin products to the Kiehl's line. Oh! And if you're un-sure if you want to spend big dollars, you can go to the store where they will most likely give you a 3-day sample.

I have fine thin over processed hair. I'm trying so hard to grow my hair long, but because of frizzy frayed ends constantly have to cut it. I've used this product for a week and blow drying my hair felt like a dream! The product smells amazing although I did have to wash my hair in the morning due to the crusty-hard gel like feeling it left my hair (the package says you can leave it in... I couldn't) but anyhow, I was really happy and would absolutely recommend this product.

When I first tried this product I was totally bummed. My once clear skin was breaking out all over the place. But the skin care rule is use it for 10 days and if your skin doesn't clear up and look better than before you started, return it. So after about 5 days of morning use I notice my little white heads were going away and my skin was softer and smoother. Now I love it! The tiny bit of foundation gives me a great glow and covers some of my imperfections, I love that on relaxed days I don't have to worry about putting on makeup for a fresh look, my moisturizer already does it for me. I recommend you stick it out on this product, it's totally worth every penny.
