KIEHL'S Super Multi-Corrective Cream is a wonderful product for dry skin. I picked this while looking for a multi-tasking product that was more than a moisturizer, but not loaded with anything that would make my skin more sensitive to sun. Like no Retinols, vit C etc. After using some samples I saw how amazingly this hydrated my skin. This is my second tub if the cream and I am addicted.

Color: White

Consistency and Texture: Thick, light weight, silky smooth, not too dense but rich a cream.

Scent: This has a distinct scent and I don't think I will be able to describe this scent correctly, so I won't even try. All I can say that it is not  a sweet and perfume like. This smells very herbal but in a pleasant way. The scent lingers on for initial 15-20 minutes and then it disappears. The scent is very fresh and not at all annoying. The cream is not fragrance free. 

Application: I apply it during the day. After my shower, I use a little less than dime size of the product. I dot it all over the face and then slightly massage till it sinks in. (like any other cream basically)

Feel and Effect on Skin: This is a thick cream and on application it absorbs completely after a minute or so. I have dry skin and occasionally get dry patches if I don't use face oils. This cream does not sits on top, but it sinks in leaving the skin feeling soft, supple, moisturized, hydrated and plump. The face looks slightly greasy initially but just for an hour or so. After that I don't notice any visible oiliness. 

Now I have dry skin, live in Chicago and have heaters running almost 6 months a year. Also I am used to slathering oils on my face. This mild oiliness does not bothers me at all, but I know of few friends who find this a little too heavy for them. The product didn't break me out. Also it helps with reducing dry patches too. I cannot completely credit this product for reduction of dry patches though, as I also use facial oils at night. 

Packaging: Purple colored heavy duty plastic jar, that looks like glass with a plastic screw top cap. I love the color of the jar. The jar may not be ideal container for storing a skin cream for hygienic reasons, but I am fine with it. You can always use a small spatula to pick the product. 

Verdict: I love the cream. This comes in another version as well that has SPF. I have not tried the other one. I am happy that this one does not contains SPF. I just needed a good moisturizing cream. This one has a good blend of beech tree extract that helps increase collagen and elastin, jasmine that helps with  repair and tissue regeneration and hyaluronic acids that improves skin texture, diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps with brightening and moisturizing the skin making it appear plump, supple and smooth. I don't have any visible fine lines or  major aging issues of skin as of now, so it is difficult for me to comment on that aspect of the cream, but it sure does retexturize the skin. I noticed difference in just a week. The skin looks plump, fresh, hydrated and absolutely healthy. A good pick for someone with dry and normal skin. Oily and combination skin people might want to try a sample before. Very pleased with the product. 

The cream comes as part of Holiday sets too and these sets are great way to try multiple products from the brand.
