KiKi beauty is a luxury skin care brand, whom currently have 3 ranges :
1. Makeup-up Ready Range
2. Skincare Range
3. Bodycare Range
They are a new 'innovative skincare brand born with the passion of creating exclusive, high quality skincare and cosmetic products.'
What excites me about this brand is that they are not only locally produced and well thought out but are #crueltyfree, #paraben free, sulphate free, #petroleum free and mineral oil free! 'Their aim is to take you on a complete sensory journey, which hopefully will rival any exclusive #international brand in terms of packaging, product range and ingredients.'
#KiKiBeauty was kind enough to send me a few of their amazing products to review from their Makeup Ready range and I couldn't have been more excited.
1. Natural Radiance Moisturizer
So we all know #moisturizing is an essential part of achieving healthier looking #skin as well as a great base to the perfect makeup application. This cream is super light weight with a #soft, #silky feeling that definitely lives up to its name. At times we come across #moisturizers that aren't really that great to apply as a base under your #makeup as the texture is too "heavy" so to speak. I've been trying this product out for a couple of days now and i really love it for the days when I plan to wear a #fullface of makeup. The "light weight" #texture really goes far if you want your makeup to last all day.
Vitamin B3 - In most skincare products Vitamin B3 is listed as " Niacinamide ". Its benefits include reviving your skins healthy tone and texture, as well as to help erase discoloration.
Avocado Oil (Persea Gratissima Oil) - acts as a skin conditioning agent which helps to rejuvenate and improve skin elasticity.
Hydrolysed Candida Saitona Extract – Extract from a fungi obtained from a fermentation process. Helps to detoxify and repair skin, has anti-ageing properties and helps to restore skin’s natural radiance.
Allantoin – Helps to soften and protect whilst actively soothing skin. It also stimulates cell regeneration promoting healthy skin.
Retail Price R360.00
2. Face Primer
Face Primers definitely are a key part of a longer lasting makeup application. What i love about KiKi beauty makeup ready face primer is that its fragrance free and velvety smooth giving you a perfect canvas to work off of. If you want to read up more on face primers and their benefits check out this post i did a while back : Foundation Primers
Oat Kernel Extract (Avena Sativa extract) - improves makeup longevity
Sodium Hyaluronate - moisturising properties.
Glycerin - conditions and softens the skin
Retail Price R395.00
3. Cool Citrus Setting Spray
Setting Sprays for your face are a must have product in my opinion. Every single one of my clients gets a little spritz of coolness to top of their makeup application. Setting sprays are used mainly to keep your makeup looking fresh all day. Sometimes they can be used not only after you've applied a full face of makeup but also just in-between the application, preferably after you've applied your foundation before setting it with powder. A little trick i also like to use a little spritz of the spray on a brush to pick up glitter products or pigments to prevent it falling every where, it also gives your a more intense pigment. This Citrus spray is super cool and what i really love is that its free of any synthetic fragrances. The only thing i wasn't a total fan of was the spritz itself, it wasn't as fine as i would have liked it to be but other than that a big thumbs up. Key Ingredients:
Oat Kernel Extract (Avena Sativa Extract) – Improves make up hold and can act as an anti-ageing agent.
Cucumber Extract (Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract) – Is soothing on the skin and acts as an antioxidant. Contains polysaccharides which bind with moisture and retain it.
Ginseng Extract (Panax Ginseng Root Extract) – An extract taken from the root of the Panax Ginseng plant. Helps with brightening and repairing skin. Can help to improve elasticity.
Grapefruit Oil (Citrus Grandis Peel Oil) – Contains antioxidants and provides a refreshing feeling to the skin.
Retail price R245.00 Overall: These products have been created with great thought from the packaging to the ingredients being used. I really am impressed with each of these products and would definitely recommend them!An added benefit they are proudly #SouthAfrican!
