Kenzo may be known for perfume but the skincare line is really interesting as well. This morning I woke up with these huge, swollen eyes. A dab of Ice-Cold Eye Cream brought them down in a hurry but that’s not my favorite product that I have tested so far.
I love products that let the consumer decide how it will be used and Kenzo’s Invigorating Exfoliating Flakes does just that. It’s exfoliating flakes that you can use with water to form a paste or with your favorite cleanser. I tried this product both ways and I prefer working it into a paste. The scent of this product, as with the rest of the line, is based on the ginger flower and it has a very calming affect on me. The flakes are in powder form and are very soft and fine to the touch. It’s not until you mix the product with water that you feel how exfoliating the flakes really are. They are strong enough to exfoliate your skin but they are not too harsh or sharp on the skin. What I like most about this product is the key ingredients it uses. White nettle extract is used to tone the skin and kaolin powder, a white clay, is used to soften and mattify the skin. It’s not often that you find an exfoliating product that helps reduce shine.
We’ll have more on other Kenzo products later on this week!
