Kiehl’s Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream

[fetch ids=”199,200″]

I’m new to the Kiehl’s brand. I mean, I’ve heard of Kiehl’s, I’ve just never used their products.

What I heard has been all good, so much so that I was influenced to buy some of their products a couple of weeks ago. But that is a post for another day.

Today is about the new addition to the Kiehl’s Calendula range,  the serum-infused water cream. What’s that about you ask? Allow me to introduce you…


Kiehl’s introduced its customers to the Calendula Petal in the 1960s with the launch of Calendula Herbal Extract Toner, currently Kiehl’s #1 best-selling toner globally.

Ever since, Kiehl’s chemists have continued to harness the time-tested, efficacious benefits of Calendula through the 2014 launch of the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash and in 2017, the addition of the Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydrating Mask.

Now, Kiehl’s welcomes a unique addition to the Calendula family, the NEW Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream.

Upon application, the water cream’s weightless formula releases a burst of soothing, long-lasting hydration, leaving skin feeling soft with a dewy-fresh finish.

The formula gives instant relief from the feeling of skin discomfort due to skin dryness. It also aids in strengthening the skin barrier, by helping to diminish the early signs of ageing that occur when the skin barrier is compromised by environmental irritants. With continued use, the formula also visibly reduces the visible signs of skin discomfort.  Does that sound like music to your ears?

Here is a quote from Roberta Weiss, Head of Product Innovation for Kiehl’s explaining how the product came to be:

We know our customers love Calendula, so Kiehl’s chemists formulated a water cream featuring that iconic Kiehl’s ingredient and took it to the next level by infusing it with a Calendula serum, providing the efficacy of the Calendula petals in a new texture.

She further explains,

Through a unique formulation technique, the water cream utilizes our highest concentration of Calendula Flower Extract in a formula that helps to soothe and refresh skin while also providing a visible glow.


Native to the Mediterranean, Calendula is known for its skin-soothing properties and has been a highly regarded herb in both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for many centuries. The unique architecture of Kiehl’s formula is constructed to “house” the concentrated Calendula Serum ingredients within the water phase. On application, the serum infusion transforms and delivers hundreds of micronized Calendula Petals and Calendula Extract directly to the skin.


Kiehl’s tested the formula and found the Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream has multiple benefits.

Clinical testing showed the serum-infused water cream:
✓ Improves the look of fine dry lines
✓ Makes skin texture look and feel smoother
✓ Boosts skin’s radiance & suppleness

Sounds a bit too good to be true? Well, lucky the Kiehl’s team sent me the range to test. I started using it yesterday and will document my journey to share with you in a review.
