THE CONSISTENCY SkinOwl Eye + is super light and has a thick gel feel to it....comparable to the feel of a thicker pure aloe vera gel. One of the reasons I am so smitten with this product is the fact that the gel maintains a cool temperature and feels so refreshing every time I apply it. It's recommended that you keep it in the refrigerator to activate the cucumber enzymes (increases circulation and minimizes lines and wrinkles) and I think that's a brilliant idea. It's like applying fresh cucumber puree to your eyes. I love it. $46
WHAT IT DOES & WHAT'S SO COOL ABOUT IT From the SkinOwl site: "Transforms crepe-paper skin into healthy, resilient and firm skin around your eyes, cucumber de-puffs, aloe smooths and silkens." What did I find? It makes the skin around the eyes soft and creates a smooth surface for makeup application. It feels wonderful on tired eyes and it definitely de-puffs. It feels like such a treat and I'm not just saying that. This is so refreshing and can only imagine how helpful it would be for those on computers all day or super-exhausted moms. What's cool is that Eye + can also be used as an all-over face treatment. I've been applying it to my forehead, cheeks and nose and I would love, love, love to have this in a larger size to use as an all-over treatment all of the time. This is perfect for pre-makeup application.

Yes, this gorgeous skincare from Toronto worked perfectly for me. This line is totally complete with everything you need. It's effective, pure and feels perfect on the skin."MOISTURIZING CLEANSER & MAKEUP REMOVER
Wow. If there's one thing you need to know about Kahina Giving Beauty's Night Cream, it is this: it is nothing like any other night cream you've ever tried before.Why? The main reason being is that it is incredibly smooth and light. Yep, that's right, light. Whenever I think Night Cream, I picture a heavy cream that will sit on my face for the entire night, hydrating it, but not really allowing my skin to breathe, which is the exact reason why I don't usually use one. This cream is the polar opposite; so soft to the touch and spreads so easily, it's a true joy to use. I find myself reaching for it for daytime use, but for the purpose of review, I stuck to what it was created for: nighttime.
