The Namaste Kitten Clarifying Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Cleanser ($19) promises to be a non-stripping cleanser that cleanses and balances the skin using hemp seed oil and heartleaf extract.
This creamy cleanser foams once mixed with water. It feels thick, almost like a mask, but it doesn’t tighten and it rinses fairly easily. True to its claim, cleanses the skin thoroughly and doesn’t leave any film or excess oil.
To detoxify blemish-prone skin, the Yoga Kitten Balancing Heartleaf Clay Mask ($23) uses heartleaf extract, eucalyptus, and kaolin.
I am honestly amazed as to how brands have evolved in terms of using kaolin clay. I usually related this ingredient to stripping and oil-busting masks, which I honestly have no problems. They clarify and thoroughly exfoliate my oily and acne-prone skin. However, even for my skin type, I use these kinds of masks sparingly because it can be too drying.
This feels gentle though. It has a cooling sensation to the skin. This creamy also applies thickly and tightens just a tiny bit as it dries. Upon rinsing, it leaves the skin refreshed, cleansed, and matte. This has been my go-to the past few weeks as it helps me keep my skin detoxified and exfoliated.
Using kale, spirulina, and chlorella, moringa seed extract, and niacinamide, the Juicy Kitten Purifying Power-Green Serum ($25) aims to nourish, soothe, purify, and improve the texture and tone of the skin while offering antioxidant benefits.
It’s lightweight yet slightly viscous texture is what I usually want in a serum. It feels gentle on the skin and it also sinks in quickly while leaving the skin feeling soothed and nourished. I like using this in the morning as it makes my skin look dewy and soft.
I really like using all the products from the Yogi Kitten Collection as they work so well for my oily skin. They came at the right time when my skin is acting up, and they became everyday products that help gently calm my skin. I still use a lot of actives but these products are what I focus on when my skin needs the break from strong treatments and when it needs calming and nourishment.
