All the fashion related things I've loved this week (Vol 1)June 8, 2017
Welcome back to my blog . It’s the month of June and i’m super stoked for whats to come . I have a big announcement so look out for that. Today, I’ll be reviewing specific skin care products from Sleek Studio. You know how big I am on Skincare so lets get right into it.
I was introduced to Sleek studio Skincare range about 2 years ago by the founder Dr Ebele Ugochukwu, MD of Sleek Studio Ltd, do you remember Sleek Makeup? yep she runs that in addition to the Sleek Studio skin care range. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria and a diploma in practical dermatology from University of Cardiff Wales. She has experimented extensively with different skin care formulations and brands.Her qualifications and years of experience led to her interest and devotion to cosmetic dermatology.
She was a guest on my radio show #CatwalkwithKaylah (you can watch and listen via www.coolfm.ng or tune in to 96.9 Cool Fm every Thursday by 5pm ) ,we talked about skincare and I was given the products to try . It was 10 in all and I was like whoa….. that’s a lot but I gave it a shot because once again, my skin is reactive and I was happy to try , I recall going on a trip to Abuja at the time , so i ditched what I was using and went off with the entire range seen below.
My favorite products from the Sleek Studio Range.
It has to be these 3 below
- A dab of Lightening .
- Scrub away my troubles
- Come clean
- A dab of lightening
If you love serums (not everybody does) , you would love ‘The dab of Lightening’ ; with ingredients like Witch Hazel Extract and Kojic Acid just to mention a few. I once read that Kojic acid functions primarily as a skin-lightening agent popular within the celebrity culture, this powerful ingredient assists in the exfoliation of dead skin cells, removing oil, dirt, and organisms that might be thriving on the skin. I alos . It brightens the skin , however if you are looking to lighten your skin, you wouldn’t achieve anything with this because I find it works with your natural skin tone.
I use 4 – 6 drops for my face and neck at night after a toning the skin , the resultant effect is a healthy glow in the morning .
2. Scrub Away my troubles
After my chat with Dr Ebele, i realized that its indeed essential to incorporate a scrub/exfoliation into your skin care routine . What it does is eliminate a dull appearance revealing a lovely natural glow, it also allows products like moisturizer and serums absorb quickly and work effectively on the skin . I recall asking Dr Ebele how many times i should exfoliate and her response was everyday (i stand corrected but i’m certain that’s what she said hehe) . Personally, I exfoliate twice a week but Fridays are set aside for a full body steam and exfoliation process to get me prepared for the weekend.
“Scrub away your troubles” is a Mineral Peel 100% natural ingredient facial scrub with ingredients like Sea Salt(i tasted it, lmaooooo) , Honey extract, Lime oil, just to mention a few . I love this scrub so much because its inexpensive and it works like magic. If you have sensitive skin like mine you will love it, because you get to scrub with felling like you used iron sponge on your face. It also leaves a “Just got out of the SPA scrub feel”
My tip : if you want a very vigorous scrub apply directly to bare skin and massage, but if you want to keep it mild , you can dampen the skin a bit before applying. It gives a squeaky clean feel when rinsed off .
3. Come Clean
This is a gentle cleansing foam with Green Tea extract. Its Sulphate free and gets rid of make up fast If you are too lazy to wipe off the make up first , you can wash with this about 2 or 3 times with a few pumps, It strips off make up like magic. Personally I use this after taking out my make up with wipes , Its amazing because each pump comes out in a Foam/lather form that’s goes straight from your palm to your face , Its deep cleansing and mild on the skin too which is why its my top pick from the range
