Kind Natured, an affordable natural brand (it is promised that the products are free of Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals; and are 97% natural in general) brought out two new lines recently, and I was kindly sent some products to try out.
Two new ranges are:
- Shea & Macadamia – described as deeply nourishing and formulated for very dry skin.
- Coconut & Monoi – described as moisturising and formulated for normal and dry skin
Each line has three products so far: Foaming Sugar Scrub (£5.99), Body Lotion (£5.99) and a Hand Cream (£4.99).
So what are my thoughts?
First of all, I think it was a clever idea to bring out the scented products at this time of year when we all are a bit tired of the cold months and crave the sun. Both lines have that sweet exotic scent, and make me personally think of a summer holiday and cocktails on the beach, they are like a summer-in-a-bottle. Although the
We all love personalised approach when it comes to everything including beauty, don’t we? This is why it is awesome to see brands having that approach. I am personally a fan of Concoction hair care brand, and now it is awesome to see Clarins and their Boosters.
What are these?
Clarins Boosters are basically high-concentrated formulas which are created for a certain concern. You simply add several drops to the cream of your choice. There are three options to choose from:
- Tones are re-energises the skin
- Minimises signs of fatigue
- Revives radiance
- Reduces feelings of discomfort
- Optimises skin strength
- Minimises the appearance of redness
Being such a fan of REN’s Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil, I’ve decided to buy more products from the brand a while ago, and since I’ve already used up some of them – it is time to share my impressions. And I will start with the Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk.
I love my luxury cleansing balms, but sometimes it is nice to use something simple but effective, like this cleanser. It is a great product for a sensitive and delicate skin, and it is promised to leave skin calm and soothed. And I would agree. I always remove my eye makeup with a separate product, so I can’t make any comments about how good it is at dissolving the mascara or the eye liner but I liked it for removing the face products.
I’ve promised to be better with my skincare reviews, so here is another one. I’ve just used the very last drop of Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil recently so here is my impression.
First of all, I really loved the glass packaging and the beautiful colour & design, it looks like a high-end product with a very good price tag, compared to similar products, £26 from from Feel Unique and $52 from Sephora for 30 ml. It also comes with a great dropper which allows you to us all the product, without any waste.
The other thing which I absolutely adore is the rose scent. Regular readers know that I am a die-hard fan. But don’t worry, it is not too overpowering or overwhelming.
As for the oil itself it has a very good list of the ingredients, and I was hoping for a miracle-in-a-bottle kind of product since it is marketed for very dry skin.
Although I did like it, I found that it
Considering that Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm is one of the best cleansers I have ever used, it is surprising that I have not written about it earlier.
This cleanser has a lovely formula that works great for an evening facial massage, it is not greasy or tacky, just a nice balmy texture. The product doesn’t have a strong overpowering scent, it smells of camomile to me.
I personally take off my makeup with a micellar water first, and then use this lush cleanser, as I’d rather massage my skin with it, instead of taking off my mascara (which you can obviously do, if you want to).
It works great for
