Kiehl's | Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream: Review
Released a couple years back, the Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream (C$79 for 50 ml) has been revamped and re-released with a lighter formulation and an innovative packaging. Formulated with sustainably sourced New Zealand manuka honey and Korean red ginseng root, this moisturizer promises a more radiant and vibrant complexion. I've got a detailed review of the formulation (and the new snazzy packaging) to share with you today. To read on, click......

Before delving into the ingredients of the Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, we have to take a look at its new vacuum-sealed packaging. Designed to protect the integrity of the cream, the jar opens to reveal a silicone seal with a raised strip in the middle. To dispense, simply press and slide along the strip in the direction indicated and the cream dispenses from a tiny slit. Cream jar packagings have gotten quite creative in recent years but this is the first time I've seen something like this! It's a bit unconventional but appears more effective than those pump-to-dispense jars (example here) in terms of limiting oxygen exposure.

With a lightweight and quick-absorbing formulation containing nourishing shea, soothing manuka honey, brightening ginseng, and a plethora of other plant oils and extracts, the Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has a very mild floral scent. The silicone-free formulation spreads easily on the skin and it has a surprisingly matte, non-greasy finish. For this reason, this is a great day-time cream that's perfect for applying under makeup. I find the formulation very nourishing and softening and it layers well with other steps of my skincare routine. Because the formulation isn't super-rich and dewy, I think those with dry skin may not find it sufficient for nighttime use. However, for anyone with normal, oily, or combo skin looking for a lightweight moisturizer in an ultra-innovative packaging, definitely give this a try!
