No surprise I am a skin care fanatic so it comes as a shock when something totally different hits my desk. Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream is definitely not your regular moisturizer. Something about the texture and its ability to revive skin makes this transformative. I have used it off and on since it arrived a couple weeks ago. But the biggest difference I noticed was yesterday – I had the day off from work and wore only this on my skin. In the AM, my skin looked tired and a little splotchy. By the end of the day it was radiant and nourished – and this was all makeup free!
This formula is natural but still effective and free of parabens, mineral oils, synthetic colors and fragrances. This thicker and slightly tacky moisturizer goes on rich but not sticky. The ingredients work to increase skin’s resistance to damage. The natural ingredients feature New Zealand Manuka honey – an ingredient I admire but hadn’t found a delivery form until this cream. Korean red ginseng root is also a traditional medicine helps to increase cell turnover rate, improve texture, vitality and glow.
This cream is perfect to transition to warmer weather, nourishing skin and making it glow for those warmer days that call for less makeup. While the texture takes some getting used to, it works well with my drier skin. And I notice only the most slight fragrance that is most like honey. Expect a plump, healthy feel to skin after it has had a chance to absorb.
