Kiehl’s Daily Skincare Series: Ultra Facial Cleanser

Ultra Facial Cleanser

In this series, I thought that I’d recommend a number of Kiehl’s skincare products that I’ve tried and tested over the past year, forming a daily routine and which have inevitably returned some wonderful, healthy looking skin results. Today is Part Two which features Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser… If you’d like to check out Part One of the series then click here. Let’s get cracking and tell you how my day goes, step 2 of my routine, the wet shower cleanse.

Ultra Facial Cleanser Usage

Every morning I wake up and take a shower. In the shower, I use my cleanser, of which I have tried many. The one I’m set on (for now) is the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. I use this in conjunction with a Clinique face scrubber which I find works absolute wonders. It feels as though it thoroughly cleans the skin and removes and muck or dirt. What I love about the product brief is that it doesn’t strip your skin of any natural oils. So far so good for this one, it’ll take some beating!

On the website, this product is stated as a customer favourite and when I popped into Kiehl’s, they tested my skin and recommended this cleanser as I had slightly dryer patches. However (through usage) I have found it to work well but the overall feel isn’t quite what I’d like. I’d ideally prefer this product to be a bit more hydrating and leave my skin feeling more alive, kind of like the Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub.


There are three main ingredients in the Ultra Facial Cleanser. Apricot Kernel Oil which is very high in Vitamin E, which aids fast absorption. This ingredient is found to be highly compatible with the skin and the oil moisturises and softens the skin whilst also helping to retain clarity and suppleness. Secondly, we have Avocado Oil which known to be the most moisturising of any fruit oil. It’s a natural source of Amino Acid proteins, Vitamins A, D, E and Potassium. This ingredient helps to restore the natural moisture of your skin. Finally, we have Squalane which is a signature Kiehl’s ingredient that helps restore the skin’s natural moisture balance, again helping to keep it extra soft and supple.


Overall I really enjoy using the Ultra Facial Cleanser in my daily routine, as I can truly see and feel the results. Kiehl’s is definitely in my male grooming arsenal and shall not be going anywhere anytime soon. If you’re feeling a fresh change in your skincare routine, why not drop into your local Kiehl’s store and give it a try? I always find they’re super friendly and truly care about your skin! Remember, though this routine is only half the battle, you have to have a well-balanced diet and always drink plenty of water.
