Over the past few days, I've been using four KAIKE products; the Sugar Scrub, the Cleansing Oil, the Frosting and the Green Tea Mask +Scrub. Want to know what I thought of each product? Keep reading!
The Sugar Scrub in an 8oz glass jar. The smell is very delicate, but the cane sugar and vanilla scents are easily detected. I'm not generally a huge fan of scrubs because they do not always live up to their promise of delivering a good exfoliation, but that's where KAIKE is superior. The cane sugar granules do not immediately melt under the heat of the shower water or against the warmth of my skin. The crystals retain their form quite a while, allowing for a satisfactory scrub enabling you to get right down to the nitty-gritty and rid yourself of any dead cells. The perfect scrub.
Green Tea Mask + Scrub
For the scrub, I followed the instructions on the 2oz jar and mixed on tbsp of the powder with a few drops of water. I then smothered the mixture all over my face. It went on easily. I then left the mask on for approx 10 minutes. The first thing I noticed about this product the way that it exfoliates your skin as you're applying. I loved the cleansing feeling. It has a gritty, almost muddy texture which when dry, almost feels as if it's tightening the skin. And this composition means that when you're washing the mask off, you get a double exfoliation. It leaves your skin feeling instantly smoother and firmer. You only need to use a tiny amount of this scrub at a time, so the 2oz tub should last for weeks!
Price: $20.00 (2oz)
The cleaning oil can be used as a makeup remover as well as a cleanser. It's light. It does not leave any greasy residue on your face after using, and the lemongrass scent is heavenly.
I fell in love with the Frosting as soon as I opened the lid. This whipped delight smells absolutely incredible! Ugh. It's so light and creamy and virtually melts on your skin. It's fusion of mango butter, coconut oil and vanilla almost has a banana-like fragrance to it. This indulgent product is a must-have for any beauty junkies.
Price: $7.50 (1oz) $25.00 (4oz)
