Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect moisturizer This is the only skin care product I use. Keeps my face moisturized all day. The packaging is easy to use and keeps the product fresh for a long time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the product. Packaging is SOOO WASTEFUL. The product itself is very lovely. My skin feels soft and moisturized, and looks bright and glowing. The packaging is soooo horrible. The jar is clunky with unnecessary plastic. The dispenser stops working even when there is still about a third of the product left in. I have bought this product multiple times and each time I have had to tweeze open the jar to get the remaining product. It seems like the packaging is set up for a possible refill option. That is what I have been hoping for (that is why I keep purchasing it). But no refill option has been offered yet, just clunky plastic on plastic on plastic. Manuka honey is a natural antibacterial and antioxidant, so I don't see why there is this overuse of plastic to "stabilize" this particular product, but not other Kiehls products. I don't think I will be purchasing again unless Kiehls reduces the amount of plastic used or offers to sell just the inner container as a refill option, and customers are able to save and reuse the outer orange jar. I have inserted a picture showing the amount of product left in the container when the dispenser stopped working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! This renewing cream is amazing! My 50+ skin drinks it in and feels smoother and just well... amazing! I almost did not buy it due to the reviews about the dispenser but I actually really like the way the cream is dispensed - a smooth glide of your finger - getting just what you need helps this container last a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love so Far! I've been using this product for about a month now. I have had oily, breakout prone skin for most of my life but now suddenly in mid-forties my skin is dull and dry. I love the feel of this lotion. I am waiting on 5 star review to see how supple my skin is over time. As for the packaging - I LOVE this packaging so far. I also don't know why people find it hard to use. It was easy to read on the top how to dispense. I love not dipping my fingers and nails in the the product and risking contamination. I am curious to see what happens when product runs low but as for now, no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely product, packaging could be looked into I really enjoy this cream. I think it is very moisturizing without being greasy, and leaves my skin with a delightful glow. My only complaint would be the container itself. I've purchased this product twice and both times when I follow the instructions to get the cream out, it bursts out of a slit instead of the intended opening. I don't know what I could have done both times to yield the same result. So I would watch out for that. I would also say a little bit goes a long way with the product and you barely have to use any to see the effects. Considering the price, that's a huge bonus. It is difficult though to determine when you're close to being out, as you cannot see into the container. Overall though, I'm happy with the product itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this cream — hate the container Despite the really awful container, this is a wonderful moisturizer. I have normal to dry skin, and this is magic. My skin stays nice and hydrated all day long. It has a subtle, natural scent that I really like. I use it over Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Daily Reviving Concentrate and have not noticed any pilling with either. This container, though. Ugh. It's the worst. How so? 1. When you open the jar, it looks like one of those regular plastic pieces you pop off and throw away, but alas, it is not. 2. After you've tried and failed to peel the plastic piece off, you notice very faint gray lettering on the white background that you need a microscope to read. You go off in search of your reading glasses. 3. When you have found your glasses, you still have to squint to read the thing, which says to swipe your finger in the direction of the arrow. You do that. It does nothing. 4. You do that some more. It still does nothing. 5. You wonder what is wrong with you. 6. You go to the Kiehl's site to find help, and see that there is a video UNhelpfully titled "How to Apply" that should be titled "How to Use This Terrible, Awful Container." That still doesn't help, though, because sliding your finger is still doing nothing. 7. Under that video, though, buried in a bullet point, it says "For first use, prime the center bar a few times until the formula dispenses." Aha. 8. You prime the center bar a few times. Nothing happens. You poke at it a dozen times more, with no effect until all of a sudden a glob comes squirting out. 9. You spread that on your face, loving the cream but wondering who decided this container was a good idea. 10. That evening, you optimistically slide your finger, and… nothing. Stab at it a few more times. Nothing. 11. Somehow, in all that poking around, you realize that you have to slide your finger the OPPOSITE direction the arrow is pointing to get it to dispense. And it still sometimes gives you just the right amount and sometimes horks up a big ol' blob. 12. After a couple of weeks, you realize that you have no way of telling when this is running low. You panic, because this has become your favorite moisturizer, and go order some more, EVEN THOUGH YOU DETEST THE PACKAGING, because this cream is worth putting up with that nightmare. But you hope someone will actually read these reviews, examine their life choices, and JUST PUT THIS IN A TUBE ALREADY! (ETA: I don't know why this says I received a free sample, even though I chose "no" for that option.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worst packaging ever It’s a good cream but packaging is horrible! I had to break open the product to find out the cream was stuck on it so there was no way it was gonna come out of the container. I contacted kiehls but they were no help, did not replace or get back to me via email, phone or anything. Product it self seems nice but I won’t b able to tell becuz I have a broken container. I have been using kiehls products for a long time now and I have to say this time worst service ever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jar Opening Expert I guess I am a jar opening expert and "went to the school of Kiehl's for jar opening" because I can easily get this product out of the jar. I mean there are literally instructions on the top. I feel like I should post a video of how to dispense the product. I am assuming this was a test run/ research and development for a new dispensing technique which I am all for. I have very long nails and scooping my nail into a lotion can be daunting. Thank you for this. Not sure what happens when you get to the bottom of the jar though...I suppose I'll find out when I get there. The product itself is thick, I use it to dilute my The Ordinary Vitamin C and mix the two together. I feel like my skin always feels smoother and tighter after I use this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need Read Me First Instructions to open Not having gone to Kiehl’s school of opening jars, I had no clue how to open this jar and dispenser. I really thought that it may have become airtight during the shipping and used scissors to try to pry open the top layer which apparently is a unique dispenser. Too late, after it is cut in pieces and non functional with no access to the cream. And don’t make fun of me, am sure others who have not been properly educated at your store or online Youtube videos may have done the same. Now what?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I received a sample of this product and loved it. Went ahead and ordered a jar of it. The ONLY disappointing thing about it was trying to get it out of the jar. I followed the directions given several times but couldn't get anything out of it. After getting very frustrated, I pried the top off. I'm not sure why it is packaged this way. Except for this problem, I love the product itself. It feels very good going on and makes my face feel very smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the dispenser and product I love the product. It is great for my very dry skin. I use morning and night. However, I LOVE even more, the dispenser. I do not like jars of product where it seems they are getting contaminated with each use. I wish many of the other jar products had this same dispenser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pure Vitality truly Skin Renewing! Love the product, strongly dislike dispensing system. It’s very awkward. After a few weeks, I pried off the dispenser plate and used the cream 2x a day. It’s nice. I am buying my second jar but hope Kiehl’s change to a tube or tiny spatula with jar

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Packaging I love there products but this packaging is just stupid!!! You can’t get anything out of the jar. The way they have this dispensing is impossible. I had to actually take the whole top of with knife to actually get to the product and use it. Just stupid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From sample to believer I initially got a free sample then I went back and got a couple more samples because I wanted to the try this product for a consistent week. I immediately noticed results from the first sample. My skin was brighter and after a week using it, my skin seemed to get an even tone. I have normal skin in the winter and combination skin in the summer. The product is heavy when you apply it but it absorbs very well and doesn’t leave a residue. I’ve only been using it at night after I apply my serum. I purchased a full jar today and I look forward to using this product for the next couple months and really get the benefits. So far so good! I’ve read bad reviews about the packaging but it’s ok for me, not a big deal. Easy to use. I get the concept but they could have just put this in a tube for the same effect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Packaging didn't meet my expectations I was very excited to try this cream because of the great ingredients and recommendations from the staff at the store. However, when I try to use it at home, the packaging was damaged, meaning the product itself was not coming out of the dispenser. After many tries, I basically gave up. Now I will have to make an unexpected return by mail. I just hope it is a free return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That Texture Tho! I love this cream! Lightweight in feel, but glides onto skin, absorbs quickly, and really keeps my hydrated all day. I layer on top of Midnight Recovery Oil and my face is winter weather-proofed! I can’t speak to the other reviews regarding packaging. The delivery system has been fine for me and keeps the product air right until use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed My husband bought this for me for Christmas and I was excited to try it. I cannot get this dispenser to work at all. I have read reviews and watched videos and mine is clearly broken. Husband will have to return it now :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrible Packaging for a GREAT Product I absolutely love this cream and I’m so excited that it’s back, but man this is the WORST packaging ever. You have to dispense it at least 5 times to get enough to cover your face. It hurts my fingers and I find it just terribly annoying. I wish they would have put this in a bottle with a pump, this is the most frustrating way they could have done it. (I didn’t receive this for free, that’s an error on this site!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect moisturizer! Goes on super smoothly, and my face feels deeply nourished without any heavy gunkiness. This also stays with me through the day, which I love. I can touch my face at the end of the day and it still feels protected. Unlike some other reviews, I LOVE the dispenser. I have great control over how much product is dispensed, completely minimizing waste (which is great for such an expensive product!). Also I love, love, love that you can wipe it off with any disinfectant, making product contamination a non-issue. People keep telling me I never age and this is my secret! Also you can subtly smell the Manuka honey, but otherwise is incredibly light scented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy they brought this cream back When Kiehls first introduced the pure vitality skin renewing cream, I instantly fell in love with its smoothing and brightening effect, its creamy yet not oily consistency, and its versatile effectiveness as both a night and day cream when I travel. As someone with oily skin, I liked that this cream left my skin dewy but not totally shiny looking, and I felt like in general, the oiliness of my skin improved over time. I quickly finished my tub (probably the quickest I've ever used up a face moisturizer) and was crushed to find that Kiehls had discontinued it. I tried a bunch of other honey creams afterwards, but nothing compared to Kiehls. Onto the relaunch: unlike other reviewers here, I had no issue with the new dispensing system. I opened my tub, removed the clear plastic adhered to the push-and-slide dispenser, slid my finger across it 4-5 times to dispense the first dollop, and since then, it's been pumping consistently. No one had to explain it to me and it seemed pretty intuitive. I am super happy that this product is back and performs the same (albeit with a slightly thinner consistency than I remembered), and I really hope it stays around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smell changed! I love the texture. I feel hydrated and absorbed well into the skin. However, I have two Kiehl’s products that the smell changed. I told the staff at Kiehl’s to report it but she said that they need more than one report incident of such issues for them to take it. I would love to continue using it but no issues of the smell changing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What's with the packaging It's been almost 1 hour and I am yet not able to dispense the product.!!! How do i start? There is no video.. no instruction anywhere.. Do i need to pierce somewhere.. I regret buying it now. Please tell me how to start with dispensing it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightens and smoothes my skin I'm not sure why so many are having problems with the packaging/dispense, because it works so well for me. I feel like my cream is so well preserved and not contaminated by open air with this dispense system. I actually really hope that Kiehl's does NOT get rid of the concept because of the negative reviews from others. In terms of the cream itself, I only use this in the morning. A little bit goes a long way. After using the cream, I can feel my skin is fully absorbing it and becomes very plump and smooth. My skin tone and texture has also improved. Now I only need to apply concealer on a few spots and a light layer of powder then I will be all good to go out. Love this product very much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Packaging Is terrible I have not been able to try the moisturizer, however the review requires me to review it. I’m reviewing the packaging. I bought this in a Kiehl’s store and had no idea the dispenser was so difficult to use. The jar was completely open to try. The opening seemed to be a little deformed and never worked. I had to attempt to pull the top part off in order to get the moisturizer and is still will not come off and the cream will still not come out. Always loved Kiehls, but cannot believe they would release such terrible packaging. Especially after now seeing how many customers have trouble with this particular jar. I’ve had moisturizers that were pumps or control dispensers before and never had any issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Packaging gone wrong Why the pack!! I understand the formula could get unstable or something but this pack is annoying. Nothing wow about the formula, stick to your other kiehls moisturizers. :/
Date published: 2019-11-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't live up to the hype Between the packaging and the balling up on the skin this is the worst Kiehls product I have ever used. Kiehls won't take it back and I've resorted to using it I don't have to leave the house. Stick with the basics
Date published: 2019-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amaaaaaaaazing Ok so it’s basically become a habit that whenever I see a product that claims to help with texture and radiance I have to have it, even though I know it’s always ALMOST too good to be true. Most of the time, I’m right, the product doesn’t do what it claims and money is wasted. However, Kiel’s sent me just one sample and after using it one night I went out the next day. I woke up with my skin so moisturized and supple I was so impressed. The only down side if for me it pills(when I rub it in balls start to form), but it doesn’t really bother me because it feels like I’m exfoliating my skin while also moisturizing. I mean even after I’ve slept with it my skin stays so glowy throughout the day without reapplying. I’m in love and I don’t have any problems with the dispenser so far, I’m hoping it stays that way. If you’re looking for a new moisturizer, I HIGHLY recommend at least giving this one a shot. Thank you Kiehls!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looking for a new facial cream I use a lot of products from Kiehl's so when the associate mentioned that this product has a dispenser I was all in. The dispenser is slightly tricky at first cause you have to press and slide several times before you get anything. The only bad thing was that I accidentally poke a hole in the dispenser so now it comes out 3/4 through. Still works. Maybe instead of press and slide, just add a stick within
