Although this ultra-light moisturizer doesn’t offer any significant beneficial ingredients that skin needs, it is somewhat capable of keeping oily skin matte for a reasonable amount of time; how long will vary based on how oily your skin is and on the other products you’re using. It’s an OK option for oily skin, but, ultimately, you should be seeking a product that provides surface shine control and treats your skin to the types of ingredients even those with oily skin need, such as antioxidants, skin-identical ingredients, and cell-communicating ingredients.

Brand Overview

Kiehl's At-A-Glance

Kiehl’s has been around for quite some time, with its origins in a New York City-based pharmacy established in 1851. The brand is perhaps best known for its apothecary-style packaging and its best-selling (and celebrity favorite) Lip Balm #1.

Though the brand claims its products are made with the finest naturally-derived ingredients, most of its formulations include synthetically-produced ingredients as well. Like most skincare companies the line contains both good and not-so-great offerings; Kiehl’s main misstep is that many of its products contain fragrance ingredients that could irritate skin, particularly sensitive skin.

Note: Kiehl's is categorized as a brand that tests on animals because its products are sold in China. Although Kiehl's does not conduct animal testing for its products sold elsewhere, the Chinese government requires imported cosmetics be tested on animals, so foreign companies retailing there must comply. This requirement is why some brands state that they don’t test on animals “unless required by law.” Animal rights organizations consider cosmetic companies retailed in China to be brands that test on animals, and so does the Paula’s Choice Research Team.
