Protect & Strengthen Your Skin With Kiehl’s New Barrier Cream

Kiehl’s has just launched the Ultra Facial Advanced Repair Barrier to ensure that this year your skin gets the ultimate glowup! The barrier cream is meant to be the last step in the skincare routine, to seal and lock all the moisture in to protect your skin as it repairs the skin barrier. Kiehl’s even claims that the cream will relieve itchiness from dry skin and improve skin condition within one hour, which definitely piqued our interest.

The two key ingredients in the Ultra Facial Advanced Repair Barrier is olloidal oatmeal and beta-glucan to lock in hydration while reducing inflammation and redness. While most people use the barrier cream on the face, it can also be used on the hands, legs, and body; pretty much anywhere that requires moisturising.

The Ultra Facial Advanced Repair has a creamy, almost balmy like in texture. Despite the thick texture, the cream absorbed quickly even after my entire skincare ritual. After a weekend at the beach with scorching sun, my skin was left sunburnt and dry from the salty air. Within an hour of application, my skin didn’t feel as rough and the pink sunburnt T-zone was less painful upon touch.

The barrier cream comes in a long squeezy tube, which also makes it convenient to pop into your travel pouch. The skin is especially prone to breaking out or becoming very dry in different environments like harsh sun or cold winter, which is very common when we’re traveling! We definitely recommend picking up a tube of this multi-purpose barrier cream if you’re traveling overseas, or if you simply want to boost moisture while keeping environmental irritants like dust and sun rays at bay.

Pair the barrier cream with either of Kiehl’s best-selling moisturisers for best results – the Ultra Facial Cream and Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream. The Ultra Facial Cream is Kiehl’s signature product that is suitable for dry to normal skin, providing long-lasting hydration for 24 hours. For those who have oily or acne-prone skin, the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream will be a better choice as the gel dries almost instantly upon application, leaving the skin soft and supple all day long.

Our skin type is constantly changing, so you can drop by any Kiehl’s store for a quick 10 second hydration check to get an accurate analysis of your skin’s current condition.

The Ultra Facial Advanced Repair Barrier Cream (50ml, S$85) is now available in online and in Kiehl’s stores island wide.
