The Cleanser You'll Soon See Everywhere

Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm Review

When you've wrote about beauty products for as long as I have (five years and counting - can you believe that?), you begin to spot products that may be under the radar but are so wonderful, you know it is only a matter of time before they become beauty superstars. This was, and is my exact feelings towards the Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm; if I could bet on one cleanser being on every beauty junkies bathroom shelf by the end of the year, it would be this.

As pretty as the packaging is - and my gosh is it pretty - it truthfully is not all that convenient, I don't know about you but I live in fear of glass jars while cleansing my face; slippery hands, hard surfaces and general oafishness do not bode well. To somewhat counter this issue and to generally stop people like myself making a mess, the Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm comes complete with a plastic spatula; the idea is that you scoop out a little with this rather than your hands. I also feel those more equipped to discuss the integrity of ingredients will argue that the clear glass of the jar will not keep the Vitamin C within this cleanser stable? If you can look past this, I promise Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm is nothing short of incredible!

Cleansing balms - a thick, almost solid balm like texture right? Well yes but not in the case of Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm; think a soft, almost gel like consistency that requires minimal application effort on your part and yet will remove even the heaviest of make-up - it really is a joy to apply. Speaking of which, you simply apply on to dry (or damp skin), massage, rinse and go - much like any cleanser of this type.

So what makes Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm so special? Both the ingredient line up and the percentage of vitamin C (15%), both of which help to soften, renew, brighten and oddly repair. The Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm contains a whole array of natural oils and seed extracts to do more than just cleanse, from Rose Hip Seed, Olive, Avocado and Cranberry Seed restore and offer anti-ageing benefits, while the high concentrate of vitamin C leaves the skin illuminated and plump. To ensure the skin is never stripped or left feeling dry this cleanser is constructed from cold-pressed oils such as Coconut, Sunflower Jojoba. It really is impressive and of course luxurious.

All of the above means nothing if the cleanser does not deliver where it matters most - physically cleansing the skin. I can report that yes the Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm, smells, looks and feels great on the skin but also efficiently and gently removes all traces of the day. There is no greasy residue and yet my skin is soft to the touch, plump and dare I say hydrated after use. I will add that the brightening effects only really come into play after a few weeks of continuous use but then again very few illuminating cleansers are instant. If you want a cleanser to do more than just swipe off your make-up, and long for something that cares and repairs the skin (as well as adding a natural glow), this is what you have been waiting for.

  1. At £68 it's not exactly the most affordable option out there. Although it does sound interesting. I will be curious to see if people will switch from using say Emma Hardie/Eve Lom balm to try this one. ;)

  2. If it was 20 I'd be all over it, too expensive for me.

  8. If I'm going to spend my pennies on all those nice ingredients I'd hate to see them washing down the drain. I'd rather go with a cheaper cleanser and save my money for a serum or a moisturizer, so I can get more benefit from what's in it. It does look lovely though...
