After seeing how conventional products that fell during an earthquake were able to eat through her rug, Natalie, one of the co-creators of KPS Essentials, quickly went green and began creating a vegan and organic green beauty line with her rocket scientist partner (yes, really). KPS Essentials is excellent for all skin types, specializing in aging, acne, rosacea and eczema-prone skin as well as psoriasis and skin healing from scarring. Here’s just some of the line that I’ve been slathering all over myself for the last few weeks. Enjoy 10% off with code: GPJ10 AND a free deluxe travel size kit with your order for a limited time!
A PROBIOTIC TONER
Finally! An active, yet gentle toner that is good for ALL skins, even skins that suffer from acne, oily skin, eczema and are super sensitive. I’m a fan of probiotics in skincare (and to ingest) because I truly feel as you can see and feel the difference immediately after using them. The KPS Probiotic Toner is simple in its ingredients, yet powerful in results. I’ve been using it after washing my face (before applying moisturizer) and feel as though it balances my skin and leaves it ready for moisture as well as removing any last traces of makeup. This toner is designed to balance out the skin (via the sebaceous glands) and wonderful for dark marks, oily/combo skin, acne prone and even hand spots. 99.5% organic ingredients. Highly recommending this if you’re a toner fan!
HYDRALUX: A HYDRATING PRIMER WITH SPF 15
One of the KPS Essentials’ products that I’ve been grabbing daily is their Hydralux SPF15 Primer. I love, love, love using this under my makeup daily (especially in the cooler months when I only need an SPF of 15). Not only does this offer sun protection, but the hyaluronic acid gives just the right of moisture to the skin, plumping it up so it makes makeup look fresh and leaves skin feeling soft and nourished. In addition, there’s no white cast and it feels like a creamy day lotion. It’s perfect for those of us who want SPF, but don’t want it to mess with our makeup. Hydralux is also 97% organic and is all natural with green beauty heavy-hitting ingredients such as pomegranate, walnut, coconut and argan oils, plant-derived hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.
OIL + CREAM CLEANSERS
Some people (like me) love themselves an oil cleanser and others love a cream cleanser (uhm, I kinda love both, tbh) so I think it’s a brilliant idea that KPS Essentials has one of each! If you’re looking for a cleansing oil that will break down and dirt and makeup on the skin without stripping it, you’ll want to go with their 100% organic, multivitamin Aromatherapy Cleansing Oil. It feels nourishing on the skin and washes off easily with a warm washcloth. Not simply a cleanser, this product sets out to condition and strengthen the skin. It also has a bright, fresh citrusy scent that I love. If you love a cream, go for the Brightening Cream Cleanser. This cleanser is smooth and creamy and has Alpha Hydroxy Acids to remove dead skin cells to give the skin a restart. Don’t let the word, “acids” scare you, as this cleanser is super gentle and is great for mature skin, acne prone skin, oily, or dry skin. I like to give it a good massaging into the skin to really get the ingredients working. This might be one of the most gentle and effective ways to exfoliate the skin without any harsh abrasives or scrubbing. Bonus? It leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated, too.
THE PERFECT FACE CREAM WITH A DOUBLE DOSE OF COLLAGEN
I feel like that at some point skincare became really complicated. Meaning, instead of us being able to just go out there and buy a great face cream, everything became loaded with ingredients we didn’t need or became too heavy and active. I love KPS’ Renū Face Cream because it gives me that “good old face cream that you’ve been searching for” feel. Creamy, so refreshing and without that heavy feel, this super smooth cream works on wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone and spots with daily long-term use. And, you can use Renū all over your face, around the eye area and neck. Like many of the KPS products, it also helps to reduce discoloration (yeah) sun damage, scarring and marks. You can also use this cream both day and night and it’s 96.5% organic. I’ve used half a jar already because it’s just soooo good. Oh, and there’s lots of great ingredients too, such as: olive, argan, coconut and jojoba oils; and plant-derived hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.
