Priding themselves on being an ethical luxury brand, Kahina Giving Beauty’s Oil Cleanser is formulated with organic and fair trade argan oil, plant botanicals and extracts, and some of my favourite essential oils, like geranium and neroli.
This cleanser is…
Neroli Flower Oil*
Geranium Leaf Oil*
Blue Tansy Flower Oil
St. Johns Wort Leaf Extract
*Ingredients from Organic Farming
†Naturally occurring compound in essential oils; not an added ingredient
As you can see, there are a lot of ingredients. This would usually turn me away from the product, as my skin prefers simplicity. However, these ingredients all serve a purpose and they’re formulated in such a way that they are truly effective.
Some of my favourites are the argan oil, blue tansy, and geranium essential oil. Argan oil is moisturizing, repairing, and amazing for all skin types. Blue tansy is so anti-inflammatory it’s crazy, and geranium essential oil is incredibly balancing.
Scent - I adore the scent of this cleanser. The geranium, blue tansy, neroli, and sandalwood are blended together to create a very grounding yet floral scent that is just dreamy. However, it’s not an intense scent nor does it linger so if you’re not a fan of fragrance, no need to worry.
Texture - This is not a cleansing oil. A cleansing oil has a thick texture and is moisturizing even after removal. An oil cleanser is much lighter. While it’s not drying, you will need to follow with a face oil or cream to moisturize the skin.
Efficacy - This is easily one of my new favourite cleansers. It’s light, but moisturizing. It easily removes makeup and dirt. It leaves my skin feeling clean, but not stripped. And it’s been great for my dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin, even as the temperatures drop. It basically ticks all the boxes!
Sustainability - While formulated with some organic ingredients, I wish it was completely organic, especially given the high price tag. However, I love that they use organic AND fair trade argan oil in this cleanser! And on a final note, this cleanser is packaged in a beautiful glass bottle, which is always wonderful to see.
