Kiehl’s Has A New Sealed Dispenser Moisturizer and Everyone Else Should Do The Same

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Kiehl’s Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream has a new sealed dispenser on their moisturizer. This is how ALL moisturizer in the jar should come! There are already a few brands that embrace packaging like this such as Drunk Elephant and Kate Somerville but it should be mandatory that any brand that sells you a moisturizer in a jar has packaging like this.


Bacteria, germs, exposure to air need I say more? This lid ensures you never touch the moisturizer and the moisturizer is never exposed to air. When you want to use it you press down and swipe forward to release just the right amount of product to apply. The entire jar of moisturizer is never exposed to air, your fingers are not touching it, and it’ll remain safer and fresher in packaging like this.

I applaud Kiehl’s for putting this on their Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream and I hope they start putting the same exact lid on all their moisturizers in the future. It’s truly a step in the right direction to keep product fresher for longer!

I love this!

Let’s hope more brands wake up and do the same!

What do you think of this new packaging design?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I think it’s great but some creams are too thick and heavy to be able to do this. I’ve always thought this was a great idea!! I agree – everyone should jump on this bandwagon. It’s not like companies aren’t making enough profit off skincare that they couldn’t do this in a snap and only lose a few pennies profit by doing so. Now – is the stuff inside any good? 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I dunno! Kate’s exfoliating treatment is really thick and still works great in this packaging ;-D so, it might just work for heavier creams! Good question 🙂 haven’t tried this!

        I won’t buy any expensive skin care item that comes in a jar so this is a good step. Now if all these companies would just follow this example maybe I’d give them my money.

      • kimkats

        Interesting! I wonder how well these work when you get close to the bottom of the jar?

        • Isabella Muse

          I have one like it from Drunk Elephant that I’m almost done with and so far, so good! I think the air propels it up!

          • kimkats

            Ah, i see. Nice!! I hope other companies start using this form of packaging – it looks functional and fun to boot! 😀

    I think the idea is great, and think the idea might have come from the same technology as cushion foundation. This top will protect the product from its own internal degrading, regardless of human touch, as well.

    Now I want to try this moisturizer even more just because of this packaging!

  • Ryou

    I feel like they can just switch over to tube or airless pump packaging instead, but I guess jars ARE more stackable than tubes/bottles so this is still a welcome change!

    I wonder how well the mechanism works when you get close to the bottom of the jar, though.

    • Isabella Muse

      I reached the bottom of Drunk Elephant’s Protini and it seemed to get the last drop no issues! I think the air inside propels it up!

    I re-use vacuum pump jars and have bought more on Amazon. I move my creams and gels to them when I first open them. Unfortunately, a large pump jar does not hold a full size moisturizer, so I store … everything, really … in one of those tiny fridges I bought off Amazon on sale. I’m less concerned with the bacteria problem than the loss of efficacy when air hits the open jars. I think all liquids and creams meant for the face should be in tubes or vacuum containers. It’s not expensive because I’ve seen bargain products in them.

    • Jennifer

      This is the most fantastic thing I’ve read all day. Of course that might be because I.m currently sweating my ass off and the thought of tiny fridge moisturizer sounds a m a z i n g.

  • Annette Lanham

    Agreed I hate finger dipping which stops me from buying a lot of skincare – maybe that’s a good though as I’ve got loads!

  • erika

    I love the idea! I hope this will be broadly implemented in the industry.
    Jars are cute but so unhygienic…

  • dia

    Everything cream and lotion should be in a tube if not an airtight pump. Tubes at least prevent exposure to cooties from finger tips and exposure to light that can degrade ingredients such as vitamin C.

    • Isabella Muse

      your fingers can’t touch this, it’s an airtight seal around the entire jar, you need to press to release small amounts at a time.
