Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Travel Size Cleansing Cloths, 24 Hour Face Cream and 24 Hour Booster Serum Review

Products in this review were provided by PR/the brand

I reviewed Kaia Naturals about 1.5 years ago (crazy how fast time goes by) and loved their Juicy Bamboo towelettes! You can read my original review HERE. When I was given the opportunity to review their new products I jumped at the chance! I love that they're cruelty-free and that their new face products are gluten-free. Let's just jump right into the reviews...


Kaia Naturals Juicy Bamboo Travel Size Towelettes




Product Description

These individually wrapped cleansing clothes are eco-friendly and soaked in vitamins. They are meant to handle everything from skin cleansing to makeup removal. I was given enough for 5 days of use.

Makeup Removal

These easily removed face makeup and did fairly well on "regular" eye products. I did find I had to do some extra "scrubbing" for super waterproof makeup, so I would recommend using these for the removal of non-waterproof makeup if you are like me and tend to favor super budge-proof products.

Facial Cleansing

These did a great job cleansing my skin and while I wouldn't say you could go without moisturizing (I tend to have slightly dry skin), they didn't suck the moisture out of my skin like so many cleansing cloths I've tried.

My Thoughts

I still really like these, but I'm unsure of why I had a different experience in regards to waterproof eye makeup removal this time versus last time. I'm not sure if it's because there's a difference in how moist the travel cloths are compared to the ones in the tub, but that was the only major area I saw a difference. The convenience factor is certainly very appealing, however. I could see myself keeping these in my purse or kit for facial cleansing--definitely a big plus. These did not irritate my super sensitive skin in any way and are cruelty-free.

One other thing I want to point out to those of you that have never used these cloths is the size. I noted it last time as well. These cloths are smaller than drugstore cleansing cloths, but they are large enough to cleanse your face and remove your makeup (with the exception of super waterproof makeup from my experience). Just a heads up!

All in all I like these and definitely think they will be a really appealing option for some beauty users and makeup artists

Price

These retail for $19.50 for 20 individually wrapped cloths.

Kaia Naturals 24 HR Face Cream and Primer



Product Description

This is a gluten-free, anti-aging face cream formula meant to provide excellent hydration and priming (with a matte finish) without some of the undesirable ingredients used in other traditional primers (no silicone or synthetic polymer). I was given enough to use this product for 4 days.

Moisturizing

Typically I prefer to use a moisturizer for 7-14 days prior to forming an opinion, but as my sample was enough for me to use for 4 days I'll give my thoughts thus far! This moisturizer was excellent over the 4 consecutive days I used it. My skin is naturally fairly dry and this hydrated my skin well! The matte finish leaves skin soft and even, but not "greasy". 

Primer

I want to start off by saying I personally think a good primer is hard to find. I'm not a huge fan of silicone as an ingredient, but find 9/10 that primer includes silicone, which provides a nearly flawless appearance once foundation has been applied. This is a silicone-free formula so keeping that in mind, my expectations were that it would provide a great surface to apply foundation, but not necessary provide some of the "benefits" silicone can offer. That being said, the matte finish and hydration that this priming face cream offered for my skin was fabulous! I don't have many fine lines and my skin is fairly even so I don't require some of the things silicone can offer in a primer, so keep that in mind, but overall I found this was a really fabulous skin prepping product and one that I would personally like to add to my daily routine! 

My Thoughts

I was extremely impressed with this formula and would like to use it long-term to see how it continues to work for me! I'm not sure I've come a cross a face cream with natural ingredients that provides a hydrating, yet matte finish. To me, this is a product of note and definitely one that those that prefer natural ingredients may want to consider. I don't know how this would work on someone that has trouble skin, so I can't necessary recommend it to those of you with that skin type, but it may be worth contacting Kaia directly to discuss it further! Personally, I love this!

I want to note that this does not have a real scent and it is not super heavy-feeling on the face.

Price

This is priced at $36 retail.

Kaia Naturals 24 Hr Booster Serum



Product Description

This is a gluten-free, hydration-boosting serum meant to be added to your face cream. This is suggested for dry skin. I was given enough to use it 4 times.

Moisturizing

This is definitely very moisturizing when added to my face cream! I added this to the Kaia face cream I mentioned above and found it left my skin incredibly soft and smooth.

Primer

On Kaia's site it mentions this acts as a 2 in 1 product--skincare and primer. While this would work well for me when coupled with a matte-finish foundation (since my dry skin isn't a huge fan of super-matte foundations), this serum did give me a slightly dewy finish (in comparison to the cream alone, which is matte) and may not be what some people are looking for in a primer when it comes to finish. As far as prepping the skin itself, it hydrates it very well and made it much more receptive to many of the face products I use. 

My Thoughts

I like this and I think I'd personally use it during the night more so than during the day as it is ever so slightly heavier feeling on the skin than the face cream alone. The non-matte finish isn't a deal breaker for me as I like a dewy finish alone, but when coupled with a dewy-finish foundation I definitely needed something to mattify it.

This has no real smell and did not irritate my sensitive skin over the course of the time I used it.

Price

This retails for $36.

Kaia Naturals 24 Hr Eye Cream



The reason this was not mentioned in the title is because I was unable to review it. Something in this formula irritated my eyes within moments of the first time I used it and I was unable to leave it on my skin. It's too bad because I really love the matte face cream! I have no idea what in the formula didn't work for me, but I have fairly sensitive skin and eyes, so it's not uncommon for me to find things I can't use. 


What do you think about these Kaia Naturals products? Will you be trying any of them?
