Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream Review & Swatch-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
I have hungrily eyed this gorgeous honey scented cream in the sunflower yellow tub ever since it was launched in India last year but came away from the store dolefully with a sample sachet when I heard the price 😐 Nearly 5k for a face cream? Nah. Almost a year later, I spotted this beauty at the store when Kiehl’s was having a flat 25% off & well I could not simply stop myself 😛 😛 I had almost wept on using the sample- it was that good! Read on to know more ^_^
What Kiehl’s Says-
What it is: A 99.6% natural formula that balances ingredients from Eastern and Western tradition to boost skin’s natural resilience.
Who it’s for: All skin types.
What it does: Revitalizing Korean red ginseng root accelerates cell renewal for a vibrant glow, while fortifying New Zealand manuka honey infuses skin’s barrier layers with the supple strength to smooth creases and fine lines. With new strength to bounce back against visible signs of aging, skin is smoothed, refined and glows with more youthful vitality.

My take on the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream-
I have loved the beautiful yellow tub ever since I set my eyes on it 😛 The cream comes in a heavy sturdy sunflower yellow glass tub with a matte finish screw-on lid & a plastic protector. Not very travel friendly but I insist on lugging it around!
The cream is pale yellow in color with a very rich, smooth & creamy texture & trust me, even very dry skins only need a tiny little bit for it to hydrate the entire face & neck area efficiently <3 I have normal-dry skin & I take just a tiny blob, warm on my palms & massage it into my thirsty skin & voila! My skin is instantly supple, happy & well nourished.
I have tried out the cream during both day and night and I love it both ways! It is lovely as a rich night cream & I wake up to nice, soft skin in the morning 🙂 It does not have SPF though so you do have to slather on extra sunblock.
I use it as my primer for makeup as well & also mix a blob with my regular foundation to sheer it out into a BB cream when I don’t feel like being too made up.It does both the jobs amazingly well & hydrates and smoothens my skin 🙂
Combination-oily skins though should stay far away from this cream as it is too rich for them, even in colder weather. However, it left no greasy residue on me & did not aggravate/irritate my sensitive skin 🙂
The fragrance is heady, amazing with a whiff of strong, natural honey scent which I simply adore!
Pros of the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream:
- Sturdy beautiful yellow glass jar packaging 🙂
- The texture is very rich & creamy and my skin drinks it up without leaving any residue/greasy feeling <3
- The hydrating effect is lovely and works as my primer, day/night cream efficiently!
- The fragrance is amazing- natural honey scent.
- Loaded with lots of anti-oxidants!
- Did not break me out or irritate my sensitive skin 🙂
Cons of the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream:
Too expensive to buy without discount 😡
Swatch of the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream-
My Rating: 4.99/5!
Do I recommend the Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream?
Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream is till now, the best rich hydrating cream I have ever come across & it caters beautifully to normal-dry-very dry skins, plumping & nourishing parched,dehydrated skin. It is my saviour in this dry,cold season & it is a winner in every aspect <3 I would repurchase & stock it if i got it again on discount 😛 Highly recommended!
