I love discovering new Natural Beauty brands and when I was at the Masters of LXRY event in Amsterdam , The Netherlands , I was pleasantly surprised to find JK7 there . Jk7 is a Luxurious Natural Skin Care brand from Hawaii , all products are Handmade in Hawaii . The products are Organic and Natural and are not tested on Animals .
Founder Dr. Jurgen Klein the Creator of JK7 has a long history in Natural Skin care . With JK7 he started a luxurious and modern revolution . When I talk about Natural Skin care and Make-up people mostly think it is something for crunchy people and people who hug trees . But no! This is not the case, Natural Skin care and make up is for people who Care about their body and skin . Health is important so a healthy diet also will give you a better complexion . But you can ruin this by using the wrong products on your skin . Without you knowing it " Regular " products strip the skin of their natural protection and makes the skin addicted to these products , in the end you would need more and more to keep the skin in an acceptable condition . Also some regular products contain harmful ingrediënt which can cause hormonal problems and even cancer , for example Parabens . I got aware of this in my pregnancy , since these substances even travel trough your body to your baby ! But even something as simple as alcohol is bad for the skin , since it makes the skin dry out .
Especially when you already have troubled skin for example with Acne these regular products will only make it worse . This is why I started my journey into Natural products . And I have to say , my skin is getting better ! ( I have partly hormonal acne , the " extra " acne is now gone because of the natural products ) . In the past I really have made it worse by covering it up with make-up , using scrubs , acids and more harmful products , so it will take a long time to let my skin heal again . I am happy to know that with the products that I am using now I won't cause more damage to my skin and body . JK7 has send me some items to try out and I have been trying them for a couple of weeks .
Because of the essential oils in the products , each product has its own special smell . These oils also really " Work " on your skin , for this reason JK7 uses glass pots and jars for the products , plastic cannot keep the oils in their original state .
The first 3 products that I tried were:
Lip Balm ( Coconut & Vanilla ) This smells so good ! It feels very soft on your lips and stays on for a long time . I really love it ! It smells like a delicious cake .
Moisturizing Mist Freshener ( Lemon & Lime ) Another delicious smell , just like refreshing lemonade , sprayed on the face it adsorbs very fast into the skin and leave it feeling fresh and moisturized .
Rejuvenating Serum Lotion ( Rose , Jasmine & Neroli ) It feels very smooth and hydrating , personally the smell was a bit too strong for me , but my mother loves it , so she is using it now .
The two products that I got to try for my Acne . Foaming Face Wash ( Patchouli & Ylang Ylang ) Mixed with lukewarm water it makes a very soft foam , the smell is very herbal and refreshing . After washing your skin feels soft , smooth , firm and very well cleaned . Both the Patchouli and the Ylang Ylang works very well against acne . Detox Face Mask ( Rose & Calendula ) You recognize the refined smell or rose immediately , you mix this with 1 part water and then apply it to the skin as a mask . I use a stiff foundation brush to apply it in a clean way . Leaving the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes makes you feel totally relaxed . Wash it off with lukewarm water and your skin feels super soft , clean and calm . And the amazing smell of rose will stay with you all day . Rose is anti aging and the calendula works healing . ~ Since I got to know about Natural Skin Care I also got very interested in essential oils , I have read a lot about their effects and it is amazing to see these all back in the products of JK7 . I also have some of these oils at home .
