In Our Makeup Bag: Kahina Giving Beauty Toning Mist
What It Is:
Kahina Giving Beauty Toning Mist
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Luxe skincare products are always a fun way to switch up your routine. Every time I use one, I feel like I’m pampering myself! And we all know the importance of effective skincare; if you’re skin isn’t in tip-top shape, it will show, regardless of how much makeup you slather on.
Kahina Giving Beauty is a company started by Katharine Phillips L’Heureux. She was inspired by a trip to Morocco, where she discovered the benefits of Argan Oil and the hardworking women who produce it. The skincare line is small, but well thought-out and, even better, Kahina gives back 25% of the profits to the women of Morocco who produce the oils used in the products! I gave their Toning Mist a test run and felt good about myself while doing so.
How To Use It:
From the name, it’s not really clear what the purpose of this Toning Mist is. Thankfully, it comes with some suggestions for use. They suggest to “use morning and evening after cleansing and before applying either Kahina Argan Oil or Kahina Serum to aid in superior absorption. Spritz throughout the day to replenish moisture and refresh.” After a couple test runs, I settled on my routine, which included washing my skin in the evening and then applying this before my moisturizer.
CC Rating: B+
I’ve only been testing this out for a couple weeks, and maybe this product requires much longer to see a real difference. Yes, I have noticed that my skin is much more moisturized when I wake in the morning. It did also seem to calm my skin down; redness was slightly reduced, which is a big problem of mine. However, I didn’t see a huge change in tone or texture or of my skin. My skin is quite “young” and doesn’t have many issues, so perhaps someone with more skin problems would see drastic changes.
Even though it’s not listed in the product info as a benefit, the Kahina Giving Beauty Toning Mist really decreased the amount of moisturizer I had to use. I would recommend this product to people who use pricey moisturizers. Honestly, it could probably increase the life of your moisturizer by 30-50%. If you’re looking for more moisture or to extend the life of your daily cream, check out the Kahina Giving Beauty Toning Mist!
