Recently, the lovely people over at Kirakira Studio sent me a bottle of their AHA 2 in 1 Facial Wash and Make up Remover to try. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now so today I’m going to share with you all my thoughts and opinions on the product.
First of all I want to discuss the packaging. I’ve admitted in the past that I’m a total sucker for cute packaging. It draws me in, grabs my attention and makes me more likely to re use a product if it looks nice in my bathroom. I absolutely adore the way this product is presented, the design on the bottle is really creative and it definitely makes it stand out. I find that skincare products often come in quite bland, uninspiring packaging so it’s nice to see something colourful and eye catching for a change. It also has a pump dispenser which is handy – I hate when you’ve got product all over your hands and have to use a squeeze tube.
Before we get onto the performance, it might be worth noting that my skin type is normal to dry. I get bad dry skin on my nose and jaw line, everywhere else is pretty normal apart from the occasional hormonal break out. So how does the AHA 2 in 1 Facial Wash perform? In a nutshell – brilliantly. The product itself is quite a thin liquid, it also doesn’t foam up when you rub it onto your skin which is great for me as I find that products that foam up tend to dry my skin out quite a bit. It did take a bit of getting used to though as I’m so used to seeing my face washes really lather up on my skin.
I found the product easily removed all of my makeup with the first wash. I didn’t use it to remove my eye makeup as I’m so sensitive around my eyes, but all of my foundation and powders, brow pomade etc all washed away without any difficulty whatsoever. I usually do a second wash just to rinse off any residue but there wasn’t any at all which was a pleasant surprise!
After using the product, my skin felt so soft and hydrated. It also looked brighter and had more of a glow to it which is great for me as it can tend to look a little dull due to my dry skin. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and while it hasn’t cured my dry patches or anything like that (which I wouldn’t have expected it to) it has definitely made a huge difference to the appearance of my complexion overall. I’m actually regretting not taking before and after pictures as I’m positive there’s a visible difference!
The product retails for £19.99 which is slightly more costly than your average high street face wash, but for that price you get 190ml and a little does go a long way. Overall I really rate this product, it works brilliantly and it’s brought life back to my complexion.
