Eighth and Wild on Toners & Kahina Toning Mist

Eighth and Wild

PSA: for those of us subjected to dry heating in these coming months, please make sure to use a hydrating mist as part of your skincare. Topical water + humectant sodium hyaluronate = great way to combat dry, flaky skin and get those oils/balms/moisturizers to absorb even better.

Green beauty blogger Eighth and Wild recently reminded you “Don’t Skip the Toner” and wrote about the benefits of toners and how to use them. (Cheat sheet: pH balance, exfoliation, and absorption/moisture) Check out her post here.

What she has to say about Kahina Toning Mist:
“It has a nice soothing scent, you can feel it on your skin after using it… The Toning Mist leaves my skin the most moisturized out of all of them, so for those who have drier skin, this might be what you’ve been looking for.”

NEW! Kahina Argan & Aloe Set

Kahina Argan & Aloe Set

We are happy to introduce our new, limited edition Kahina Argan & Aloe Set!  Its contents are inspired by the centuries-old remedies of Moroccan desert inhabitants: restorative argan oil and soothing aloe vera.

This set contains the essential skincare duo for travel: Kahina Argan Oil and Kahina Toning Mist.  Refreshing and rich in aloe vera, Kahina Toning Mist is to be applied generously on the plane, at the beach, in the sun, or in high altitudes to maintain optimum hydration levels.  After spritzing Toning Mist, Kahina Argan Oil should be smoothed on to moisturize and provide protective antioxidants.  Kahina Argan Oil serves as an après-soleil treatment for face, neck, body, and hair to restore suppleness and glow, while promoting healing from UV exposure.  Both products in this set are sized appropriately for carry-on air travel. (Kahina Argan Oil, 30 ml / 1 fl. oz., and Kahina Toning Mist, 50 ml / 1.6 fl. oz)

Kahina Argan & Aloe Set is housed in a beautiful iridescent blue which calls to mind the bright indigo seen all over Morocco. It is handmade from aloe vera cactus fiber in Fes, Morocco by 17th-generation artisans.  Kahina Giving Beauty founder Katharine L’Heureux personally sourced and created these zippered bags, just the right size to carry all your beauty basics.

A Donald Draper-Inspired Kahina Argan Oil Shaving Tip

dondrapershaving

Did you see the Mad Men season 5 premiere? Don was pretty glowy post-shave.

Fellas, this one’s for you (although not exclusively):

1. Apply Kahina Argan Oil to your face on the areas where you’ll be shaving.  In the industry, this is what’s called a “pre-shave oil”.

2. Use your favorite shaving cream, or, as one male Kahina user does, Kahina Facial Cleanser & spread it over the oil-slicked areas.

3. Shave- with the grain, tyvm! Rinse.

4. Re-apply Kahina Argan Oil (a double dose does a body good!) as an after-shave soother to avoid irritation and keep skin fresh, not taut.

For those special men who take extra care of their mugs, the ultimate post-shave routine: spritz Kahina Toning Mist first, then Kahina Argan Oil, and finish it all off with Kahina Facial Lotion.  Donald Draper approved.

Get The Kahina Glow: Our 3-Product Mini-Facial

happypumpkin

Je promise: you will have the glow and grin of this jack-o-lantern when you’re done with this Kahina mini facial

Halloween is right around the corner… which of course means Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations are already going up and our holiday event calendars are getting pretty booked (speaking of- got some exciting Kahina events lined up for you this season! Stay tuned!).  Yes, I am getting on the bandwagon and hyping the holidays/winter before they’ve even started.  But! it’s for a very good reason: looking fabulous. Or at least much, much better.

You see, anticipating this cold weather and how it dries my skin out, as well as the myriad of events stacking up, I start thinking about mini-facials.  That’s where your mind would go too if you worked at Kahina Giving Beauty. Trust me.

Q: What can I do in twenty minutes, tops, to revive my chronically dehydrated skin and look and feel presentable for these nights out?

A: Duh. The three-product, at-home Kahina mini-facial. It’s quick yet still luxurious, requires only 3 products, is guaranteed to deliver a glow, and oh yeah, smells amaze– perfect for putting me (and you!) in a good mood for hours of (tedious?) socializing.

You’ll need: Kahina Antioxidant Mask, Kahina Serum, and Kahina Eye Cream*

Here’s how:

1. Start with a clean face.  I like Kahina Giving Beauty Cleanser, but it’s not essential for this at-home facial.

2. Apply a thin layer of our Antioxidant Mask.  Doesn’t it smell good?  That’s the eucalyptus and mint- so uplifting and refreshing, amirite? Leave it on for ten minutes while you brush your teeth, watch Bravo, call Mom, pet your dog, whatever. (I do all of those things.)

3. Remove our Mask – gently buff it off with your hands or a washcloth.  That little grit you feel is the other Moroccan beauty wonder, Rhassoul Clay, which deep cleanses and helps gently exfoliate, all without drying you out or leaving you red-faced, like other clay masks.

4. Admire your glow. Seriously, you’re already glowing at this point, but we’ll keep going.

5. Apply a few drops of Kahina Serum. This smells so good too! Chamomile, ylang ylang, myrrh? Yum.  Kahina Serum is a more complex blend of oils, including Argan, that deliver nutrition like vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as antioxidants, thanks to sea buckthorn, coffee, and carrot seed.  If I have some extra time, I’ll spritz on Toning Mist before the Serum to help it absorb better, but if I’m in a rush, the Toning Mist can wait.

6. You’re almost done! Dab some Kahina Eye Cream around your eye area. It’s silky, absorbs easily, and plumps those little fine lines so they’re less noticeable. Kabam Pow! You’re so glowy, refreshed, and lovely.  Didn’t that feel good?

Bonus point if you do all of this from a hot bath. Two bonus points if you’re sipping some vino or coffee – they’re mood-boosting and antioxidant-rich, too!

By the way, Katharine L’Heureux, Kahina founder and fearless leader/guru, swears by this 3-step treatment as a transformative skin/mood pick me up.

What’s your foolproof 1-2-3 before a night out?

*I picked these three products in particular for a sort of autumn/winter mini facial because they’re a little richer and more moisturizing.  For the summer version of this, I’d use Argan Oil or Lotion in place of Serum and Eye Serum rather than Eye Cream.
