beauty scoop | kahina giving beauty night cream

Though I’m not typically a face cream kind of gal — I gravitate toward face oils and face balms — I had a feeling Kahina Giving Beauty’s Night Cream would be the exception to my typical tastes from the moment the silky cream went from my fingers to my face.

{Kahina Giving Beauty sent me its new Kahina Night Cream to to sample and review. It costs $105 for a 50 ml Miron glass jar.}

As an oily-skinned lady, I tend to avoid night creams because they’re just too heavy for my congestion-prone skin.

But Kahina Giving Beauty’s Night Cream is something of a hybrid between a traditional night cream and the oils and balms I’ve come to love. It’s easy to spread — milky, even — yet dries to a supple sheen, never over-dewy or flat-out shiny.

During winter, I could see myself using Kahina Giving Beauty’s Night Cream during the day (which is totally fine from an ingredients standpoint — no photo-sensitivity issues here) to give my skin an extra boost of moisture without any of the heavy weight.

It layers well over a serum, and for extra moisture (again, for winter for me), you can top it off with an additional shot of argan oil or prickly pear seed oil. Talk about a powerhouse skin regimen!

So what makes Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream a powerhouse product on its own?

Kahina’s staple, vitamin E-rich argan oil, combines with red wine grapes loaded with resveratrol and polyphenols to give Kahina Giving Beauty’s Night Cream just what it needs to help improve your skin’s texture and tone while gently firming and lifting the skin.

The soft floral scent (which should be bottled into a natural perfume!), made possible by a smart blend of lavender and lemon balm, encourages nightly relaxation of the senses and calming of the mind as the lightweight formula quickly soaks into the skin.

While I don’t yet have to deal with fine lines and wrinkles, the thoughtful ingredients packed into Kahina Giving Beauty’s Night Cream are designed to help smooth and prevent these signs of aging and can also defend the skin against environmental free radicals that can further exaggerate these signs.

Here’s everything that’s inside Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream:

Organic aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, organic argania spinosa (argan) oil, glyceryl stearate citrate, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl caprylate, pichia/resveratrol ferment extract, lactobacillus ferment, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, propanediol, vitis vinifera (grape) juice extract, organic glycerin, water/aqua/eau, organic butyrospermum parkii (shea) nut butter, sodium hyaluronate, disodium rutinyl disulfate, hordeum distichon extract, melissa officinalis extract, cetyl esters, organic rosa damascena (rose) flower oil, organic pelargonium graveolens (geranium) leaf/flower oil, organic lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower oil, citrus aurantium (petitgrain bigarade) leaf/bud oil, bisabolol, organic tanacetum annuum flower oil, santalum spicatum (sandalwood) wood oil, organic rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, sclerotium gum, p-anisic acid, xanthan gum

As I approach 29 this fall (you have my birthday marked on your calendar, right?), I’ll remember to keep using powerful preventative organic beauty products like Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream in hopes that my skin ages as well as that of my beautiful 62-year-old mother’s.

(My mom swears by her night creams and the proof is in her skin! She’s slowly turning on to natural products now thanks to yours truly.)

And with that, Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream is clearly a repurchase.

At $105, it’s a luxury beauty buy, but the fact that it takes just a dime-sized dollop to spread across the whole face means it will last a long time with nightly use.

Plus, if you want to cut it with your beloved oils, as I do, you’ll extend the life of the product — and the vitality of your skin.

Do you use night creams, or do you prefer different textures such as balms and oils? What Kahina Giving Beauty products have you tried? Tell me in the comments section!

    This cream is awesome! While I didn’t splurge yet, I have tried a teeny weeny sample and could tell that it sinks in beautifully and smells just as wonderful as you describe (that’s important in any lotion that’s left on the skin IMHO). In any case, your bday is now on my calendar. Where are we celebrating, babe? (Wow, 29 was a good year for me ;-) )

      Yes! Well, New York is always a good idea :) We could get into some trouble!

    I am in love with the Kahina Giving Beauty Oil, and if this as good as you say it is (though it most likely will be), I think this cream will become my winter skin staple! And your birthday is now marked down on my agenda.

    This night cream is so good. It’s nice for the summer since it’s so light yet moisturizing, and I definitely can see myself using this in the winter (with a drop or two of face oil). And girl, when’s your birthday???

      I love mixing it with some face oil! Good, good stuff.

      This year, my birthday falls on Thanksgiving :) My favorite holiday for a reason #turkeybaby
