Kimi Organic Hydrating Facial Cream: a review and a chance for you to win!
A little while ago (longer ago than I should admit to, actually), I was contacted by Kim Girbin, the founder of Kimi Organic, a vegan-registered, certified organic skin care range and holistic New Zealand company, who sent me some products to try. I received two full-size bottles of the hydrating facial cream, and a sample each of the body wash and the face wash. I’ll be straight with you – the sample size didn’t really allow me to try the body wash at all (there’s a lot of me), and I rubbed half the face wash into my hair because the hotel I was staying in for work didn’t have any shampoo. What the? Exactly.
So let me talk to you about the facial cream instead. I really like it. Let’s take a look at the ingredients:
Chamomile Extract, Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Cetearyl and Sorbitan Olivate, Cetyl Alcohol,Vegetable Glycerine, Fragrance, Macadamia Oil, Avocado Oil, Guar Gum,Potassium Sorbate,Peppermint Essential Oil, Rose Otto. (certified organic ingredients are listed in bold)
I know what all of those things are. I could eat most of those things, so I feel pretty good about putting them on my skin. Although I don’t follow a vegan diet, I like that Kimi Organic is vegan-certified, and I appreciate the straightforward approach of their trees for life programme.
Of course though, what you’re probably wondering
is what the cream is like. Despite ‘frangrance’ being on the list, there’s not really much of a scent to it, which is nice, just a vague suggestion of chamomile tea. It’s a runny consistency, which is fine, and initially when you put it on, your face might feel slick for a minute before it sinks in. But then my face feels impossibly soft, and also at the same time pleasantly tight – which I might put down to the peppermint, although I could of course be talking out of my ass. I feel like it makes my face glow a little. It is a very nice moisturiser to use.
But don’t just take my word for it! Since I got two bottles, I’m going to give one away! Leave us a comment telling us what pretty pretty pretty things you’re going to be asking Santa for this year, and I will draw one winner at random next Friday. Hurray!
