When it comes to skincare, I can’t really remember not being interested in it. Before I was old enough to have my own, I dabbled nightly in whichever products my mother was using, as since I went away to school and university, I’ve pretty much guarded my ever-increasing stash with my life. Yet despite my rather pack-horse tendencies, I don’t think I’ve ever used a serum that’s not been designed for my face before. Thankfully though, Kahina Giving Beauty’s pretty much iconic Fez Body Serum has come to my rescue right in time for the increasingly cold weather!
Packaged in Kahina Giving Beauty’s slick black packaging, the Body Serum is everything you could wish for in winter skincare! With a texture which verges on an oil (it was included in Vogue’s Top 10 Beauty Oils!), the serum feels like such a treat to use! I have been reaching for it after my nightly bath or shower, so that I can really enjoy the experience – the serum’s scent contains notes of Rose and Orange Blossom along with hints of citrus and patchouli. The result is a wonderfully warm, almost smoky fragrance which feels incredibly luxurious and soothing to use.
As if the to-die-for scent wasn’t enough, the formula of Kahina’s Body Serum packs a serious punch! With a high concentration of argan oil to help boost skin elasticity whilst watermelon, sunflower, olive and coconut oils deeply moisturise. It leaves skin feeling absolutely incredible – so soft and nourished, and I’m addicted to layering some on after an intense exfoliation session!
Kahina Giving Beauty Fez Body Serum is priced at £85 for 200ml and is available here (UK) and here (US)
When the temperatures take a dip like they have this week, I basically just want to curl up into a ball and hibernate. Unfortunately though, life has a tendency of moving on, and I’ve always got a million and one things on my to do list. So, in an effort to feel as cozy as possible whilst I’m working away, I’ve turned to Kahina Giving Beauty’s Perfume Oil in Fez
From unwrapping the beautiful, almost tile-like packaging, to unscrewing the beautiful black glass bottle, Kahina Giving Beauty’s Fez Perfume Roller Ball feels like a study in luxury. Based on the much-loved scent of the brand’s rather iconic Body Serum, it’s a warming, almost spicy scent which feels like a custom-glen perfect for enjoying these wintery days.
Thanks to a formula comprised of pure steam-distilled essential oils, the perfume has quite a rich consistency, which feels so glamorous to apply. Since the bottle is a roller ball, I’ve been applying the oil to my wrists, inner elbows and behind my knees, allowing my body heat to warm up the fragrance, and the result is just heavenly! With top notes of Jasmine and Orange Blossom, I knew I was going to love the exotic, almost spicy scent! As the fragrance warms up, the heart notes of Cumin and Clove give a richness, whilst the hints of earthy patchouli, vetiver and ylang-ylang really round out the fragrance. It’s such a perfectly warming fragrance, I’ve been reaching for it incredibly regularly on these awfully grey mornings, as it’s such a beautiful way to feel like I’m somewhere far more exotic than Edinburgh!
