When Kiehl’s asked if I’d be willing to try out their new Super Multi-Corrective Cream for 2 weeks for review I already knew it had to be something special. It’s a pretty confident ask after all; having Beauty Editors commit to a review after using it for such a short amount of time. What if it wasn’t long enough to see a difference, or worse yet what if I hated it and had to write a super awkward review like an ‘at least I liked the purple jar’ type of thing.
Lucky for me I don’t hate it. In fact I love it. I like it so well that I just returned the Ole moisturizer I bought recently that I’d been using on and off for a few years. Compared to this cream, Ole’s just felt flat and almost runny. It certainly didn’t stand up to this cream’s texture and it didn’t have nearly as many benefits. It strikes that perfect balance of being thick but not greasy and moisturizing but not heavy while using scientific advancements married with proven natural ingredients. It completely melts into the skin and gives the type of softness that feels like baby skin and not something artificial from a jar. It’s how my face feels after a facial, like it’s brand new.
It’s meant to lift, firm, and repair damaged skin using Jasmonic Acid (plant-based), Beech Tree Extract, and Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid which gives that big drink of hydration. I can see the texture of my skin is better from getting the moisture it needs so even my makeup blends in easier and my cheeks have a healthy glow. It’s too early to get the long-term benefits but I believe it’s doing great things (and it’s safe for pregnancy, yay!) so I’ll stick with it and be faithful to this little jar.
Thanks for this honest review carissa,, I will defo have to try this cream 🙂 xx

Hi Carissa! I really enjoy your blog andI would love to have a discussion with you regarding fragmented hyaluronic acid (low molecular weight) and what it really does in the body. There is lots of peer reviewed research showing it’s actually an inflammatory cytokine in the body. One of the reasons manufactures don’t use native hyaluronic acid and use fragmented hyaluronic acid is the cost. Simply put, it’s cheaper. Native HA (stabilized such as Juvederm, or unstabilized as is added to some products) is an anti inflammatory cytokine. Research extolling the virtues of HA was based on native, not on fragmented or low molecular weight. If you like, I can pm you the links to the research. Thanks so much! Krissy Groop
