Natural Beauty Bloggers Holy Grail Products No.5 - Naturalla Beauty



Another installment for this blog series and this time I'm showcasing the holy grail products of Canadian Blogger Caitie from Naturalla Beauty.

When Sarah asked for more contributions for these Holy Grail posts, I was quick to volunteer, but once I actually sat down to pick products, I really had to mull it over! I knew I wanted items that I keep coming back to, but I also didn't want to repeat any of the favorites already mentioned by other bloggers. I finally settled on these two...

Acure Organics Unscented Cocoa Butter + CoQ10 Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion - I'm quite picky about scents, so when it comes to lotion – or anything else that gets slathered all over - I usually opt for unscented products. My favorite to date is from Acure. The ingredients are top notch and it rubs in easily and won't leave your skin feeling sticky or tacky. And, unlike a lot of other fast-absorbing lotions, it still manages to do a fantastic job moisturizing the skin. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth tube of this stuff!

Kahina Giving Beauty Facial Cleanser - I love argan oil and I have a soft spot for creamy cleansers, so it's not altogether surprising that I fell hard for this cleanser. Alongside Kahina's signature argan oil, it also contains aloe vera to keep skin hydrated, willow bark to eliminate toxins and impurities, and papaya enzymes to brighten and lightly exfoliate. It’s gentle and suitable for sensitive skin and also smells lovely, removes makeup, and has the most perfect light cream/milky consistency that I just love. Kahina is something of a luxury brand, no doubt, but before you let that deter you, keep in mind that you get a full 200ml (6.7 oz.) of product here, so ounce-for-ounce, the price ends up being comparable to a lot of mid-range brands. You also don't need to use a lot - I bought my bottle in early December and it's still got about 1/4 remaining.

I'd like to thank Caitie for taking part in this series. Acure does appear to be a very popular brand across the pond, bloggers are always complimentary about products. If only it was more accessible in the UK without the need for international shipping *sigh*. Please do pay a visit to Caitie's blog, it's one of my favourites and I know will interest many of my readers.

  6. such a nice post

    I know very well Kahina, i tried almost everything (except mask and face oil serum) and i can say it's a gorgeous brand with an amazing philosophy. You should try it!

    Instead due of the strict italian customs, i never tried acure..but i notice that if I buy from Iherb they help a little with customs and such :P

    i need to try shampoo and body creams

    big kisses Sarah :)

    1. sounds like you have a lot of knowledge of Kahina. Acure shampoo has my interest I see a lot of other bloggers talk highly of their products :-)

  7. Ok I will let you in on my secret of where I get acure, iherb. The shipping is from $4.95 and the prices are way cheaper than anywhere else, plus the delivery is really quick. I think it was 3 days last time. Plus if make sure that the total is less than $30 including shipping you won't get charged vat and processing fee (normally 2-3 products per order depending on price) xx

    1. Thanks Tammy, I've been stung in the past with international shipping & not just to do with our Custom Charges, I know many bloggers recommend iherb :-)

  8. The Kahina cleanser sounds beautiful, I'd never considered it before, but it sounds right up my street! I was also looking into Acure on Amazon as some other people have mentioned. The product I'm looking at is actually the same price as in the US, but with Amazon it always depends on the day you're looking - sometimes you get lucky!
