Everything I’ve ever smelled from Kat Burki makes me crave green juice like right NOW. I’m smelling the Vitamin C Face Cream and Retin-C Complex at the moment, and… Hold on. Must make self something in blender now…
Ah! I’m back. I don’t know what it is about these products.
Actually, I think I do know what it is…. They smell so effing fantastic and fresh. They’re manufactured using something called “cold processing,” where the ingredients are heated to no more than 120 degrees, which is supposed to keep the nutrients intact. It’s like raw food skin care.
No synthetic fragrances, fillers, silicone, parabens, sulfates or petrolatum
Does it actually make the products more effective? Hard to say, but after using two of them for a few weeks, my face feels fab. It’s happily hydrated, and I think my skin tone looks slightly more even. Also, every time I rub one of the products into my skin, I really do get a hankering for a green smoothie, but I digress… The products smell fresh and raw, almost like someone whipped up a bunch of skin care in my kitchen and poured it into a jar.
I’ve been using the Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream, which is $60 for a 1-oz. jar, and the Retin-C Treatment Complex, which is $165 for a 1-oz. bottle with a pump.
So what is the $165 Retin-C Treatment Complex?
Let’s start by talking about this, just because I can’t believe it hasn’t irritated my skin at all in three weeks.
See, that’s amazing to me because I’ve started and stopped quite a few retinol treatments because they were too aggressive for my combo skin. My skin would hurt, so I’d get discouraged and quit using them, but this one is so gentle.
