We're excited to present Kelly's favourite beauty buys from the Fresh Faced collection:
Kahina Giving Beauty Eye Cream:
"Don’t let the small container fool you. Just a tiny dab under each eye instantly lightens dark circles and helps to reduce puffiness."
Suki Intensive Nourishing Cream with Brightening Complex:
"I am completely seduced by the lemongrass smell, and my skin looks so much healthier since I’ve been using this. It also helps to even out my skin tone, minimizing redness and sunspots."
Soapwalla Restorative Face Serum:
"Where has this been my whole life? This serum is my absolute favourite product and I highly recommend it for anyone with dry skin, wrinkles, or acne. I can’t even go one day without it now, especially with the colder, drier weather upon us. I love it so much I wear it morning and night."
John Masters Organics Cacao & Cupuaco Hand & Body Butter:
"The rich coffee and chocolate scent smells so good you want to eat it. Just a little bit goes a long way! Great on elbows, knees, feet, or any area that needs some serious moisturizing."
Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner:
"Smells earthy and natural, and it keeps my curly hair from looking like a frizz bomb—even on humid and damp days!"
Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator:
"This gentle exfoliator is actually a moisturizer as well. It can be applied to dry skin and then removed with a warm cloth. I love that I get a good cleanse and at the same time it nourishes my skin."
Yarok Feed Your Shine Hair Serum:
"I love how just a tiny dab can keep my split ends totally under control. It also has a very strong natural smell, which I love and compliments the essential oils I wear for a bit of fragrance."
