When it comes to skincare, there are brands that are good, brands that are great, and brands that leave you speechless. Such is the case for me and Kat Burki, the American skincare brand that’s revolutionizing the cosmetic industry thanks to its raw (yes, raw) products.
Kat Burki is an uber-inspiring woman of all trades, with expertise in healthcare, nutrition, wellness and design. After working as a healthcare attorney, where she studied rise of environmental and food-related diseases, she branched out to create her first fragrance and, soon thereafter, her own skincare brand. With a keen understanding of food and nutrients, she developed her products using cold-pressed, cold-poured and cold-processed ingredients – in other words, nothing is heated over 120 degrees during manufacturing, keeping them raw and nutrient-rich.
The result has incredible effects on skin; because the premium quality ingredients aren’t heated, they can retain their natural nourishing and super-healing properties. From repairing damaged skin cells to promoting enzyme function, these products truly work it.
I’ll be honest: every Kat Burki product is a hero product (in my humble opinion) but the Complete B Vital Hydration Face Mask is a favourite. It’s lightweight, silky, and leaves skin amazingly smooth and glowing. It can be used morning and night: leave it on for 20 minutes before washing off or leave it on to absorb – I can’t wait to use this on my next long-haul flight to save my skin from total dehydration.
Post mask, follow-up with the Rose Hip Revitalizing Serum. This wonder product is energizing, protecting and balancing. Warm it up in your hands before you apply (to activate the vitamin C) and let it work to create an invisible barrier against free radical damage, UV rays and stopping signs of ageing before they appear. As Kat Burki says, it’s an “antioxidant powerhouse for the face.”
Alternatively, try the Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream for mega hydration. Made with lavender, aloe, green tea – and boasting and impressive 15% vitamin C content – it works to boost collagen, smooth, firm and protect against free radical damage. Did I also mention that it’s anti-ageing and brightening? Seriously, what’s not to love?
