As you all know, I am a huge enthusiast of natural beauty and skin care products. I just turned 30, and over the past few years I have been paying a lot more attention to what I am putting on my skin. Conventional products often contain tons of chemicals and substances like parabens and Sodium Laurel Sulfates that can actually cause irritation to the skin. Not good at all, especially over prolonged periods of use! So while I am all for skin care products that are natural, it can sometimes be a challenge to find products that are effective as well. That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review Kio Kio products! Haven't heard of Kio Kio yet? You will! This New Zealand based company is taking the beauty world by storm with their line of natural body care products! Even Hollywood is taking notice of these fantastic products as they have been featured in People Magazine's Style Watch as well as in leading women's magazines like Marie Claire!
Here is more about Kio Kio, taken from their website:
Kio Kio bodycare is made in New Zealand from the purest, softest spring water. This is combined with potent natural plant extracts and some certified organic ingredients to create a luxurious range of natural bodycare products to soothe, replenish and beautify your skin. The certified organic water used in Kio Kio bodycare is filtered from New Zealand mountain ranges and extracted through an aquifer deep in the ground. The unique bio-active botanical ingredients of Kio Kio are sustainably harvested from New Zealand’s pristine native forests.
The Kio Kio natural bodycare range includes fragrant and soothing body creams, body lotions and body washes, a refreshing body mist, and a rich creamy soap. The products include exotic natural perfume oils and unique, wild-harvested native botanical additives. Kio Kio bodycare is available in four beautiful New Zealand-inspired fragrances that are fresh, clean and uplifting.
Don't these products sound simply amazing? I received 3 of their best sellers for review: Their Body Cream, Body Mist, and Body Soap, all in the exotic Pacific Tiare & Ti Kauka scent!
The first product I would like to talk about is the Kio Kio Body Cream. This is also my favorite product of the bunch! This rich, sumptuous body butter is like Heaven in a pot! This wonderful product is made with New Zealand spring waters and fortified with native botanical extracts and natural perfume oils which are all greatly beneficial to the skin. I especially love the ease of application. This rich cream glides onto the skin effortlessly, and leaves the skin soothed, hydrated, and unbelievably soft to the touch.I also love the Pcific Tiare & Ti Kuaka scent. This scent is light, resfreshing, and makes one think of an ocean breeze with a hint of exotic floral notes. The smell is very clean and is not at all overpowering. A little bit goes a long way, and this product will last quite a long time. The Kio Kio Body Cream is also wonderful for more mature skin, as well as dry or sun-damaged skin. And since this product is natural, you are not likely to experience any irritation while using the cream. If you want soft, supple, beautifully moisturized skin, this cream is definitely the way to go!
The next product I would like to share with you is the Kio Kio Body Mist. This product is wonderful and offers instant hydration to parched, tired skin! This truly provides instant rejuvenation. Spray the gentle mist directly on your skin to soften, energize and rehydrate as often as desired, without leaving an oily texture. Pure, mineral-rich, organic New Zealand spring water, native botanical extracts and beautiful perfume oils refresh the skin, while panthenol, aloe vera, witch hazel and natural glycerin condition the skin. I keep this Body Mist in my purse and as I am on the go with the kids or enjoying a day at the park, I simply spritz some of this body spray whenever my skin feels like it could use a quick pick-me-up. This product goes on lightly and evenly, and leaves the skin feeling quenched and super soft. Again, the fragrance is lovely and not at all overpowering, making this the ideal Body Mist while out and about. Try it! Your skin will thank you!
The last product I would like to talk about is the Kio Kio Body Soap. Now I will admit, I am normally a body wash gal as I find that conventional soaps tend to be rather drying and can leave behind a nasty residue. The Kio Kio Body Soap pleasantly surprised me, though! This soap is a luxurious, creamy, moisturizing triple-milled pure vegetable creamy soap made from a base of rich shea butter and gentle plant oil. It contains unique native botanical extracts to benefit all skin types. This pure vegetable soap has a natural softening and antibacterial action and is safe and gentle on the environment. The Kio Kio Body Soap lathers beautifully, and has the same invigorating scent as the above mentioned products.I found that this soap did not dry my skin at all, and left it feeling wonderfully clean and refreshed. I may have to re-think my stance on soap now that have tried this fabulous soap from Kio Kio! It definitely blew my expectations out of the water!
Overall, I am thrilled with Kio Kio's line of natural body care products. Not only are they derived from plants native to beautiful New Zealand and are free of harsh chemicals and additives, they leave the skin feeling absolutely quenched. These products are absolutely amazing, and I expect to hear more and more about this line in the media and in within the beauty and skin care industry. So if you haven't tried these amazing body care products, I suggest you order some for yourself! You won't be disappointed!
