A Beauty Minute With Kai

3 years ago by

Morning: In the  morning I use Caudalie Cleansing Water in organic grape and camomile, it’s very light and very refreshing. Sometimes I will use Isola vanilla coffee bean scrub, it’s my magic ingredient to achieve soft and even toned skin. I will either moisturize with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm or Nature’s Gate Vitamin E Oil. I have a lot of  hair so I like using products that will keep my hair moisturized throughout the day. I use Giovanni Deeper Moisture Conditioner as a leave in and Oyin Handmade Whipped Pudding.


Day: During the day I like to carry Butter Elixir body oil and lip balm. I don’t wear a lot of lipstick so the lip balm is perfect for me, it doesn’t have much sheen so it almost looks like I have a bare lip. The body oil is really light and I use it as my daily moisturizer. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but a friend of mine recently gave me the Shimmering Skin Perfector from Becca and it’s quickly become a favorite.

When I am getting ready to go out I will apply my favorite mascara, from Benefit called “They’re Real”.

Night: Before bed, I use a bar of soap I picked up in Morocco, it’s not scented, which I love and it doesn’t dry out your skin like most soaps. I’ll apply Sublimage Eye from Chanel around my eyes and  dab a little bit of pure Tea Tree Oil on my face after using a drop of pure Argan Oil that I got from an herbalist in Morocco.”
