Kathleen UK are a skincare brand I was introduced to once at an event and I haven’t really looked back since. They provide premium natural and organic skincare products that are free from artificial chemicals. With skincare products I like to know what I’m putting onto my skin, and with Kathleen I know what’s in them and my skin loves the few bits I’ve tried. Early next month they are releasing some new products that I’ve been testing out and have fell in love with. They’re quick fix products, which I’m all for, that can be used to brighten, nourish and replenish your skin whilst removing your impurities and makeup and then cleanse and tone. Want to see more? Let’s go.
First up is the Refreshing & Lightening Cleansing Lotion with Muslin Cloths*, which I use first out of the two products. This contains 6 botanical ingredients that work to lift dirt, oils and makeup in an instant. I’ve used this as a morning skincare step as well as to remove makeup in the evening, as it works so well to breakdown your makeup. I tend to remove my mascara first and then my face makeup with this. I find the formula of this cleansing lotion quite hydrating to, as some I’ve used in the past dry out my skin after use. I apply around 2-3 pumps into my hands, rub together then apply by massaging it softly into my face. To remove I wet a muslin cloth provided with warm water and wipe my face over. It breaks down all makeup so quickly, even full face glam, and your skin is left feeling super cleansed and cared for. The cloths provided are fairly smooth with a slight texture to it, which helps exfoliate the skin at the same time as removing product and impurities. You get two in the pack, and I always make sure they are only used once as I wash them after every use as they are so easy to wash and dry for the next use. I then follow with the Rebalancing & Soothing Tonifying Mist*.
This product is essentially a toning mist, which I always use either after cleansing with the Kathleen lotion, or even to refresh my face throughout the day. The fragrance of the mist is very light and is also alcohol free, which is built to work with all skin types and even extra sensitive skin. I love that the formula is infused with aloe vera and chamomile as it really soothes my skin and lifts and brightens it at the same time. I find it does improve the impurities in my skin and smoothes out any imperfections to restore some radiance and glow. This is so lightweight theres no need to pat it in and you can apply makeup straight away if you use this is the morning, or you can use it to refresh your makeup – it doesn’t move or ruin it at all! I tend to use this more in the morning than evening, to give my skin a refresh and wake up call that it needs. This is really great paired with my favourite Pixi Glow Mist, they seem to really compliment each other. If I use the two together I tend to spray one or two pumps of each onto my face.
The mist is multi-functional to, in that you can use it in different ways. My favourite is to spritz and leave the product to dry off, as it dries very quickly. Alternatively, you can apply a few sprays to a cotton pad and wipe over the face.
Both of these brand new products release online early May, so keep you’re eyes peeled if you love natural skincare goodies to!
