Having just gone through 2 months of polar vortex weather in New York (FREEZING) I feel fully qualified to comment on what works for freezing cold, dry, harsh conditions on your skin. I used this cleanser every morning (with Shu Uemura Gentle Cleansing Oil every evening) and this Ultra Facial Moisturiser every day and never had one bad, tight, sore or dry skin day.
The Ultra Facial Cleanser works great, it clears all oil, makeup and dirt without drying or stripping the skin of any natural oils. It's ph balanced to maintain skins natural balance which makes it uber uber gentle, I can imagine this suiting even the most sensitive skins. It is so cheap at £15 for 150ml, the tiniest (I can't stress this enough) amount of product builds up into a massive amount of lather so for £15 this bottle will last you months. I've used mine every morning for 3 months and it still seems at least half full, this is a really great buy.
The Ultra Facial Moisturiser is also incredible. It makes skin smooth, so soft and I found it made me really healthy looking. I've also used this on models with really chapped, irritated skin and it's given them a really wonderful smooth base, they also told me their skin felt much softer and less sore. From my experience I am convinced this stuff is amazing and will suit anyone with the driest of skins or trips to the most arctic conditions. I used this all through February in New York where it was -10 most days and I had some of the smoothest softest skin I've ever had, so it gets a big thumbs up from me. It's also super light, it doesn't take ages to soak in and you do not feel like you have a huge slick of cream on your face, it's amazing! If you really don't like an oil moisturiser they also do an oil-free one, I haven't tried it but going by how great Kiehl's other products are I imagine it's pretty great. I also really love the size of the pot and the basic packing (that's a makeup artist thing- small enough to travel and no glass to smash). At £24 for a 50ml pot it's not the cheapest but that's no different from a lot of other cult brands. It definitely doesn't last as long as the cleanser (which lasts insanely long) but if it sounds like this would be something you might need then it's certainly worth every penny.
