As time goes by, I started to notice that I am being more careful about what product I put on my face. And, recently I’ve been drawn towards organic products. So, when this KiBeautyCosmetics contacted me to test out their 100% natural scrub/face cleanser, I immediately said YES!
Who & What is KiBeautyCosmetics?
After struggling with severe acne for years and when acne creams, all kind of face wash did no miracle, this 18-year-old young lady decided to give natural ingredients a go. Not only did she found a cheaper alternative but this scrub/face cleanser helped her to clear all the acne and scars. That’s when KiBeautyCosmetics was born.
This scrub is made by using only 2 ingredients: oats and rice powder. Oats are surprisingly good for your skin; they contain amino acids that can heal damaged skin and even target blemishes. As for rice powder, it has been used for centuries as a natural beauty aid by Asian women. It’s natural anti-aging and oil-absorbing properties make them good for oily or acne-prone and dull mature skin. It’s also a good anti-inflammatory that soothes sunburned skin.
Although I am fortunate enough to say that I don’t suffer from severe acne, 1-2 pimple always come to say hi when it’s that time of the month. Skin problem or not, using a proper scrub is IMPORTANT. There are so many reasons why exfoliating your skin once or twice a week should become essential in your routine.
When you exfoliate regularly you help remove ingrained dirt caused from pollution, old dead skin, and improve the overall look of your face.
Scrubbing away the old flaky layer, you reveal a more soft and smooth looking skin. Not only you help with the blood flow and thus help your skin to slow down the aging rate. However, make sure you don’t over scrub! If you have been using a scrub more than you should, please do your skin a favor – Keep the scrub away and let it heal!
Diaries of an Islander Girl to the test!
I have been using this scrub for a few weeks now and let me tell you, my skin feels like a baby’s booty! So soft and glowy. All you need to do is mix the powder with a little bit of water and apply it on a freshly washed face.
I have been applying the mixture on my skin with a brush and let it rest for a little while (make sure the mixture isn’t too watery, or else your mom will kick you out of the house because it can be quite messy).
After 10-15 minutes, it’s dry! Time to wash and do some scrubbing – this word sounds harsh, doesn’t it? Well, it does the complete opposite effect. Unlike some scrubs that can make your skin oily, this one will actually exfoliate your skin and leave it super clean. It’s super softening and it became one of my faves because it just gets the job done; be sure to follow with a moisturizer.
Bonus point: What I also love about KiBeautyCosmetics is that the young entrepreneur is making sure to help the environment and our little island by using recycled paper to store her products. She also encourages people to bring their own container to fill up with the scrub and gives an additional discount.
They retail for only Rs150 and Rs125 for those who bring their own container. I got a little something for you loves. If you are going to purchase your scrub, use the code: zainah10 to get a 15% discount.
