02 Feb Kimberly Sayer goodies: a big yes?
If there is a beauty brand that I want to try for a long time, it is definitely the one from Kimberly Sayer. I always heard/read quite good reviews about her products so I was quite happy to be able to test it. I was sent the Gentle Almond &Lavender face scrub and picked the ultra-light moisturiser SPF 30 thanks to the LoveLula Blogger program. Read my thoughts below!
Gentle Almond & Lavender face scrub (£21.60 for 60ml)
Sensitive (and less ensitive) skins, listen! If you have always been reluctant to using face scrubs, then you may be interested in discovering this one. It comes as a really rich cream which almost looks like a night cream with some little (Jojoba) grains inside. Very softening for the skin, you massage in circular motions all over the face. You can add a bit of water if you prefer the texture to be more fluid. Then you rinse with lukewarm water. Dead cells and grime are swept away while red areas/irritations, often generated by more agressive scrubs, are kept at bay. My skin adores it and is left super smooth and radiant. The formula contains lots of very calming and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Arnica, Oat, Comfrey extracts, Aloe vera. The scent is very subtle. almost not detectable.
One let- down that I need to mention is that the product composition is not properly displayed (with the full INCI list).
Composition: deionised water, Almond oil& meal, Safflower seed oil, Shea butter, Jojoba beads, vegetable glycerin, Lavander water, hydrolysed Almond Protein, Aloe vera gel, extracts of Arnica, Comfrey, Almond& Oat, milk aminoacids, Ylang Ylang & Orange essential oil, lecithin, vitamin C, A , E, vegetable gum, japanese honeysuckle extract.
Kimberly Sayer ultra light moisturiser SPF 30 (£26.50 for 120ml)
I often use Twitter to mention how important it is to protect your skin everyday with a good SPF cream – no matter in which season we are. The ultra light version of the moisturiser comes as the perfect beauty package for me: light (because it doesn’t give any greasy residues on my face after application), easy to apply, well formulated (hello skin loving ingredients such as Safflower seed oil, glycerin, Aloe vera juice, glycerin), nicely scented with Lemon essential oil (quite uplifting but not overpowering), alcohol- free, and cast-free (won’t leave any white trace on the face). I also want to mention that the contenance of the flacon is probably twice as big as what I would expect from a day cream, making it a really great value for money.
Another important thing to know is that the Lemon oil used in this moisturiser has been steam distilled which makes it safe to use under sun exposition.
Similarly to the scrub, I hope to see in the future the full INCI list displayed on the packaging.
As an overall, I have been completely convinced by the performance of this cream and can highly recommend it.
Composition: Deionised water, titanium dioxide (mineral sunblock), Sunflower seed oil, lecithin, Safflower seed oil, emulsifying wax (vegetal), glycerin, Coconut oil, Aloe vera leaf juice, Sea algae extract, Lemon oil, Shea butter, green tea, Jojoba seed oil, tocopheryl acetate (Vit E), Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, anthem gum, benzyl alcohol.
…..a definitive big yes for me!
