Skincare is really important to me and I was really excited when kaia naturals asked if I wanted to try their line of products. They’re a proudly Canadian company, which is awesome because I always love supporting home-grown brands. Also, all of their products are made with natural ingredients, are non-toxic, 100% biodegradable and cruelty-free.
When it comes to beauty and skincare products, I always ask best friend Diana’s opinion. She’s been obsessed with health and beauty products since we were kids and is incredibly picky. She also has sensitive skin, so she’s very selective.
kaia naturals was kind enough to send us their entire lineup, so we’ve been trying their products for a little while. We sat down this weekend to discuss our experience with each item.
JUICY BAMBO NATURAL FACIAL CLEANSING CLOTHS
Nathalie: The packaging is just adorable. I actually gave some of these to Geoff to use at home and he loves them. He doesn’t always like washing his face, but knows how important it is. This makes it so much easier. He uses them in the morning and evening. I like the fact it’s soaked with vitamins and it’s actually good for your skin.
Diana: I love the individually wrapped cloths for the gym. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I still don’t like working out with any of it on. I find that it breaks me out. This cleansed my skin, but it didn’t feel tight, just nice and clean.
Nathalie: I like it for that too. It's rare that the smell of skincare doesn't bother me and I really didn't mind the scent of these. I particularly liked the fact that it’s made with jojoba oil and essential oils. It’s also really neat that you can put the cloths in compost after using them, since they’re made with bamboo fibers and they’ll biodegrade.
Diana: This was really cool. I use Clinique Men’s scrub, but it can be harsh and it’s not ideal for everyday use. I have a feeling I’ll be using this regularly, since it can be used daily. I have allergies and blow my nose often, which leaves the skin on my nose and upper lip dry. Helps get rid of those tiny, annoying skin flakes.
Nathalie: I loved this. I especially loved the fact that it works as cleanser, exfoliator or mask. Apparently this type of product is huge in Japan.
Diana: Yes! It’s cool that you can use it with water, oil or green tea. It’s pretty simple to use, and it even comes with that cute wooden spoon so you can measure product.
Nathalie: I wear a lot of makeup for photoshoots, so using it with oil was awesome. It was very effective. And I love that it’s made with natural ingredients – it’s made with coconut and chickpeas, which is awesome.
