When it comes to gifting, I love nothing more than giving the gift of great skincare yet it can often be problematic if you’re not entirely sure on the recipients skin type.
When Kri Skincare announced their limited edition gift sets, I was excited to say the least, especially when their gift sets last year (as their previous name Guiltless Skin), were so good. This year certainly brought more than just a name change, with trial sized products being the sole focus of their limited edition gift sets for Christmas 2019.
What I love most about Kri’s gift sets this year is the beautifully simplistic pillow-box packaging which is stylish, modern and perfect for any age or gender. The white cardboard box also features some text which captures the ethos of the brand itself, from a welcoming message to a motto of great quality vegan skincare, the packaging speaks volumes before even reaching the gorgeous products inside.
Kri kindly sent me their Essentials Discovery Set* which featured in my Christmas gift guide this year. The set is the perfect gift for natural skincare newbies and beauty enthusiasts alike, introducing three 10ml trial sized products offering the lucky recipient a staple skincare ritual that is perfect for even the most sensitive skin types due to the lack of essential oils.
The Essentials Discovery Set contains Purify Rosehip & Camellia Cleanser, Illume Radiance Serum and Endless Moisture Face Cream. These products allow that special someone (or yourself if you deserve a little treat) to get a feel for the brand and determine if the products are right for you – all without committing to a full-sized purchase.
Purify: Rosehip & Camellia Cleanser
Purify really is the perfect cleanser for all skin types, gently cleansing the skin with a PH balanced formulation that will never leave your skin feeling dry or tight. The rich gel-like texture applies to the skin with ease and then emulsifies with water, turning to a milky consistency as it simply rinses away. Skin is left feeling clean, fresh and nourished thanks to the stunning ingredients that remove dirt and impurities from the skin while also maintaining hydration levels. You can see more about Purify in my previous Guiltless Skin reviews but I have to say that for my, Purify is an all-rounder that delivers with every use.
Illume: Radiance Serum
Illume for me is like a wonder-serum as it has so many benefits on a range of different skin types. Illume contains Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), glycerin and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, strengthen the skin’s barrier, calm rosacea, protect against environmental damage and help reduce the appearance of pores while leaving the skin incredibly soft, smooth and more radiant in its appearance. Despite the high content of hyaluronic acid, the formulation isn’t overly sticky in texture and actually has a silky consistency that is only slightly tacky during application. It leaves the skin feeling soft to the touch and intensely hydrated, and when used over a longer period of time, really does deliver on its promises. You can see my previous review of Illume here, but if you’re looking for a hydrating serum that is weightless, fragrance free and helps achieve a more radiant complexion, then Illume is certainly the serum for you.
Endless: Moisture Face Cream
When it comes to Autumn/Winter skincare, Endless is the face cream that will see you through the cooler weather and the festive period, as it really is a skin saviour for dry, dehydrated and tired skin. The nourishing formulation containing Olive Squalane, jojoba oil and hyaluronic acid boasts a lightweight texture which is deeply moisturising and non-greasy. The face cream leaves skin feeling less dry in an instant and with a healthy glow that lasts all day. Endless really does live up to its name, providing endless moisture to even the driest of skin types, helping to protect the skin from the elements. To find out more, you can see my previous review here for the full lowdown on my Endless experience.
The Essentials Discovery Set is the perfect way to start your Kri Skincare journey, with a selection of trial sized products that will enhance your skincare routine for the better. The pillow box packaging makes it such an attractive gift idea and the trial sized bottles are a great way to sample the range and would also make perfect travel companions too.
