I received the two products below from KiKi Beauty Skincare & Bodycare Range, to put to the test and share my exciting results with you!

1. Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator (RRP-R440)

volcanic-gold-face-exfoliator

KiKi Beauty Claims: For us this product is all about fully engaging the senses and gaining the maximum enjoyment and cosmetic benefits from the product. The Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator contains a mixture of natural clays and golden particles and has an original, distinct appearance which excites the eyes and mind. The golden product is not only wonderful to look at but also feels amazing on the skin.  As you begin to massage the exfoliator gently onto your face and neck, the mild heat created soothes and relaxes your skin, opening your pores to allow for a deep cleanse.  Natural exfoliant particles gently scrub away the dead skin, oil and dirt and leave a brighter and more glowing complexion.  An invigorating aroma that is radiant and fresh, further enhances the one-of-a-kind experience. Special ingredients in the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator complete the process by moisturising and hydrating the face.

Packaging

I won’t deny it, but the packaging of a product plays a big role in whether or not I would actually purchase it. I love pretty things, don’t we all? If it means spending a few extra pennies to get something that’s going to look chic on my dresser, then why not!

If I may, KiKi Beauty out does themselves when it comes to packaging. It is simple, classy, black & white basking in its elegance with a touch of sparkle.

This elite facial exfoliator is compressed into a 75 ml squeeze tube making it simple, easy and hygienic to use. The substance itself is rather thin, and can tend to be runny and messy so I would suggest using it carefully and sparingly.

Ingredients

Unlike many other exfoliators, the KiKi Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator contains ingredients which are beneficial to the skin, rather then harmful.

  • Argilla/Montmorillonite/Kaolin/Mica – a mixture of natural black clays helps to detoxify and cleanse.
  • Glycerin – causes a gentle heating effect and moisturises.
  • Hydrolysed jojoba esters – emollient that softens and conditions.
  • Sugar – a natural humectant that gently exfoliates.
  • Rice powder – fine rice particles for gentle exfoliation.

Application

I would recommend applying the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator to cleansed skin as the results are more effective. I cleansed my skin with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser and thereafter proceeded as follows.

I applied a coin sized amount of the exfoliator in to the palms of my hand – I did not use my Forever 21 pore cleanser to avoid any wastage of the product between the strands and felt that my hands would be a better fit. I gently massaged the product in circular motions onto the skin of my face, neck and lower neckline for about 2 minutes. After a minute or so you will begin to feel your skin heating up, which is completely normal.

Wash off with warm water. Use 1 – 2 times a week.

KiKi’s Beauty Tip : When exfoliating the face, remember that the skin of the face is fragile and delicate. Make sure to apply the exfoliator gently and massage very lightly so as to avoid damage to the skin. Ensure to exfoliate the neck and décolleté area too.

Price And Purchase

The KiKi Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator can be purchased for ZAR 440 online here. The price tag may seem hefty, however it is a luxe product which is only recommended to be used once or twice a week. If you do the math, you can get approximately 200 uses out of this tube which works out to ZAR 2.2 per use. Grab your credit card now.

If that doesn’t sell it for you, you may get an additional 15% discount by using the discount code “NABLAHROGUE15”.

Overall Thoughts

I love this scrub. The mixture of golden particles, black clay and floral scent, delicately scrub and cleanse the skin from all impurities and the heating effect allows for the pores to open up for a deep cleanse.
After 1 use my skin looked noticeably different. I would expect the exfoliator to leave my skin robbed of its natural oils and visibly dry, however not with the KiKi Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator! My skin was left smooth, clearer and particularly moisturized.
This extraordinary exfoliator ticks all the boxes for me. It refines and unclogs the skin, adds instant moisture: leaves my skin feeling soft and comfortably clean.
All in all, I just really love the consistency of this product, and it makes my skin feel pampered. This is my newest exfoliator, and I am thoroughly enjoying it!

2. Volcanic Gold Exfoliating Body Scrub (RRP-R598)

volcanic-gold-body-exfoliator

KiKi Beauty Claims: For us the Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator is all about fully engaging the senses and gaining the maximum enjoyment and cosmetic benefits from the product.  The Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator contains a mixture of natural clays and golden particles and has an original, distinct appearance which excites the eyes and mind.  The Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator was specially formulated with a luscious, natural oil base in order to provide ample nourishment and hydration to the skin.  The texture is rich and the fragrance is revitalising.  The body exfoliator disperses over the skin and spreads easily which is ideal for a body product.  Natural exfoliants work together to remove dead skin cells to reveal fresh and radiant skin. 

Packaging

The packaging is identical to the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator above.

This rich body exfoliator is compressed into a 175 ml squeeze tube making it simple, easy and hygienic to use. The substance itself is thick and lush and feels lavish on your skin.

Ingredients

Similarly to the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator, the KiKi Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator contains ingredients which are beneficial to the skin, rather then harmful.

  • Argilla/Montmorillonite/Kaolin/Mica – a mixture of natural black clays helps to detoxify and cleanse.
  • Salt – gentle natural exfoliating particles to remove dead skin cells without damaging skin.
  • Rice powder – fine rice particles for gentle exfoliation.
  • Caprylic triglycerides – plant oils that contain essential fatty acids.

Application

The Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator is almost identical to the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator and so is the application process.

I applied a generous amount of the exfoliator in to the palms of my hands and gently massaged the product in circular motions onto the targeted area for about 2 minutes. Please take note that more product will be required to exfoliate larger areas of the body and I would recommend using the correct amount of product to get the desired results.

Wash off with warm water. Use 1 – 2 times a week.

KiKi’s Beauty Tip : When exfoliating the body, do not forget to also scrub the hands and the feet.  Dead skin cells need to be removed from the hand and feet just as much as the rest of the body.  Exfoliate the hands and feet as you would the body 1 – 2 times a week.

Price And Purchase

The KiKi Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator can be purchased for ZAR 598 online here. The Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator is expensive compared to the Volcanic Gold Face Exfoliator, however you are getting an extra 100 ml for ZAR 158. Also this is not a product that you will use daily,  hence it will last longer and you will get a great number of uses from the tube.

I believe that your skin is your canvas. If there’s anywhere you are going to start, it is with your skin care routine! So what are you waiting for! Invest In Your Skin.

If that still doesn’t sell it for you, you may get an additional 15% discount by using the discount code “NABLAHROGUE15”.

Overall Thoughts

I am thoroughly impressed with this exfoliator. The mixture of golden particles and detoxifying black clays that cleanse the skin while gently exfoliating as well as moisturizing the skin throws me off the rails a bit. I love it!
After a good few uses my skin looked noticeably clearer. I generally suffer with dull skin on my arms and the Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator helped in an instant. Regularly use of the Volcanic Gold Body Exfoliator assisted with brightening up my skin, as well as leaving it looking smoother and clearer.
This unique body exfoliator ticks all the boxes for me. It is a heavenly scented, all-over exfoliator,  which is gentle to the skin and naturally detoxifies, and moisturizes the skin.

Would I Repurchase

Yes definitely! I am officially addicted to these products and cannot imagine living without them!
