Kenzoki is one of those skincare brands which is understated, and not that super well-known for its skin-nourishing formulas.
Kenzo Parfums – the fragrance and beauty arm of the Kenzo brand – is better known for well, its perfumes.
But, give Kenzoki products a chance and you will be more than pleasantly surprised.
The skincare textures are luxurious, beautifully scented (without irritating the skin), and moisturising.
The new Belle de Jour Sacred Lotus skincare range is case in point.
Formulated with sacred lotus extract, as well as antioxidant-rich seaweed and plankton, the luxurious line is great for pampering and hydrating the skin.
The Face Oil ($120 for 30ml) is a lightweight dry oil with a calming floral scent; the Serum ($143 for 30ml) is a viscous and rich gel formula which cocoons the skin; while the Face Cream ($143 for 50ml) is relatively lightweight and absorbed easily.
I use the trio day and night in this order: oil – serum – moisturiser; it calms and soothes my dehydrated skin for the entire day.
Great products for layering under make-up.
Like most dry oils, the Sacred Lotus Face Oil can be blended into a liquid foundation to make it more moisturising, and easy-to-blend on the face for second-skin coverage.
