Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dislike dispenser. Wish Rosa Artica would return. Dispenser stops working with plenty of product still left in packaging. Now must find a way to pry that cap off. In my opinion, It is not a replacement for Rosa Artica. Not sure why Kiehls stop selling such a popular product. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't understand the complaints. I actually like the dispensing system. I have had no problem with it, but did watch the instructional video. I appreciate being able to quickly dispense small doses without having to dip my finger into the product (and inevitably wipe extra back into the jar). Great cream that absorbs immediately and works under makeup.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dispenser doesn't work The dispenser for this product does not work (I had to pry it off with a knife). Hopefully the product does not dry out, as it was expensive!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dispenser nightmare The cream is awesome but dispensing it out was painful and stressful. I had to bang on it to get some out. My hands hurt the first time trying to figure out how the heck this this worked. I finally just cut it open. Sooo expensive to struggle so much. Love the cream. Hate the dispenser.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed.. I bought this cream based on the sales person recommendation as she advised this cream was designed to replace the Rose Arctica cream that I loved and used for years. The consistency of the product is gel-like and leaves a film making it very uncomfortable to wear. Plus, it has this strange dispenser that doesn't work very well. I wish I could return it. It was very expensive and I am very disappointed. I wish I could get a refund. I am also super bummed the Rose Arctica was discontinued, that stuff was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dry skin I had a sample that I waiting forever to use and when I finally did, I wish I had sooner. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple. It is a little sticky compared to other moisturizers, however it does have honey in it which should be expected. I recommend if you need a moisturizer that is going to last all day and not feel heavy on your skin. I’m so glad I made this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the ingredients but hate the packing This bottle is very small for the price and barely dispenses the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No dispensing Bad dispenser. Product doesn’t come out. I had to pry off the top. I hope it doesn’t dry out due to the poor packaging/dispensing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit sticky and mealy I found this cream to be somewhat mealy and gooey. Well, since this is made with honey, I gather that that’s why is a bit sticky and gooey! To me, this cream has the qualities more of a facial mask than a general skin moisturizer. It spreads on the skin similar to the way a zinc oxide does, which can be good or bad, depending on what you expect from a moisturizing cream. I do love Kiehl’s, and it’s always nice to try new products from their line!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok product... The product itself is fine but the packaging is truly deranged and wasteful. You have to hold one part and squeeze another, it leaves so much product inside the jar. Why is it not just a jar of cream?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious experience! After reading the review about the jar applicator, I was careful and was very impressed with how the cream is dispensed in a manner that avoids contact with air. Now, what was really impressive, compared to the original version, the magic this cream brings to my face. It soothes and hydrates it in an instant, and lasts the whole day. Very happy with this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solve on Dispenser I bought this cream because it was 50% off and wanted to give it a try as I've always been a loyal Kiehl's customer. I'm really surprised that someone from Kiehl's (maybe the packaging team) didn't chime in on how to resolve the dispensing issue which seems to be a major complaint from the low ratings. Like the others, I was pulling my hair out on how to get the cream to come out and realized that if I just turn the jar upside down, squeeze the dispenser, it comes out like toothpaste from a tube. As for its hydration results, it was just "ok," thus I gave it an average rating. I ended up using it on my neck. My dry/combination face wasn't the best to absorb it as opposed to other Kiehl's products (i.e. the hydro serum). And to keep up with skincare, us ladies definitely have to take care of the neck, the hands, and face!

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.
