At some point in time, a good skincare product will sneak its way into your beauty shelf because we all are on the quest for healthy, radiant skin. Aside from my skin-savior dermatologically prescribed line of skincare that I follow extremely closely, the Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has slowly made its way into my daily skincare regime and is definitely here to stay.
Recently launched in Singapore, the Pure Vitality has been gaining a lot of hype due to the amazing fact of it being made of 99.6% natural ingredients with zero parabens, mineral oil, synthetic colour or fragrance. Pure Vitality is an efficacious cream that is formulated to target skin renewal for improved resilience, smoother texture, radiance and buoyancy.
As we age, our skin loses strength and elasticity thus making it more prone to skin damage. With the goal of helping our skin work optimally, like healthy skin, the chemists of Kiehl's concocted a delicious combination of New Zealand Manuka Honey and Korean Red Ginseng Root which are the two base ingredients in the Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream.
New Zealand Manuka Honey
Used both in traditional and modern medicine, Manuka Honey is well known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Not only does it work wonders on blemished skin, it is also a good
anti-aging agent whilst helping the skin to retain optimum moisture. Manuka Honey also helps in stimulating collagen production & you know your home girl here is collagen everything!
Korean Red Ginseng
Ginseng is an extremely nutritious herb that is popular in the Asian culture. Widely used to treat various health ailments, it is also an amazing anti-aging agent that promotes vitality and stimulates cell-renewal. The use of Korean Red Ginseng helps to rid the skin of free radicals from daily exposure to sunlight and environmental pollution. Basically, it is a miracle ingredient meant to target all your skin woes to achieve that highly sought after youthful glow.
Now that we are done with the basic introduction of the product, here is the full review, ingredients list as well as how I incorporate Kiehl's Pure Vitality into my daily skincare regime.
Just in case you are curious about the full ingredients list, here is a screenshot that I took from the official Kiehl's website. The Pure Vitality consists only of natural, plant-derived versions of the common emulsifiers, thickeners, emollients and powders that are often found in creams. The breakthrough formulation of it being made up of 99.6% natural ingredients sure has it challenges along the way. If you are wondering what happened to the 0.4%, it is basically directed to preserve the cream. The perfect balance of all the ingredients is an incredible feat achieved by the Kiehl's team.
Experience & How I Apply It
Kiehl's Pure Vitality is a rich cream that dissolves into a lightweight formula after rubbing in between your fingers. It is easily absorbed and does not leave any oily or sticky residue. The skin immediately feels soft and supple after application.
I love how Pure Vitality smells like a yummy blend of warm honey waffles & it makes me look forward to my daily application. As I have extremely oily skin, I was afraid to use it in the day and started out only incorporating Pure Vitality into my nightly skincare regime. Something that I noticed immediately after my first try was how well-balanced my skin felt in the morning after. Instead of the usual oil-slick face, my skin felt rejuvenated and nourished. Nowadays, I apply Pure Vitality both morning and night to help restore my skin back to its healthiest state.
I am extremely impressed with Kiehl's Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream. Being stuck with crazy hormonal skin, I have always resorted to harsh chemicals to curb my active breakouts. Little did I expect that an almost natural moisturiser would do the job and further help to heal my skin by restoring it to its optimal state. Even my favourite skin doctor noticed the translucent glow in my skin and the improved texture. This natural skin-loving moisturiser is definitely here to stay! Do check them out at our local Kiehl's store and try out a complimentary sample! I promise you will love it as much as I do.
