I’m finally back! Oh my gosh you guys I have to say it felt amazinggg to step away from work & the blogging world for a week and spend some well deserved downtime with JB and my parents! Our trip was so incredible I am BEYOND excited to share it with you! Today though I want to talk skincare with you. If you have been reading LE for a while then you know that I’ve been on a kick over the last year with cleaning up my products that I use. Its been an awesome learning experience of what I was putting on my body and I’ve been so excited to share today’s products with you!
About two years ago I picked up a Women’s Health Magazine that had the battle for the Next Fitness Star on it. They had badass women from all types of training & backgrounds. I was intrigued by one in particular, Christine Bullock. I started following her on Instagram shortly after and loved her movements that she came up with and how she was so strong! She was also sharing amazing recipes & things she does to keep her skin on point. When she released Kayo Better Body Care I knew I needed to pay attention! Boy was I right! I have been using Kayo for about two months and even took it to Cabo when I went, its that amazing! Christine & Carrington – thank you for making such a kick ass product!
Let me first give you a little background into my thought process in trying it out. I am a skincare junkie and I love having a cleansing/toning/repairing system for my face. I’ve pieced different products for day and night that target different skin issues and keep my skin bright & clear. For my body I was not nearly as kind. I was throwing on a body lotion about every other day after washing and that was it. Kayo is that total system for your body! I thought to myself – if I take that much care with my face (which only makes up 5% of your skin!) why the hell am I not doing it with my whole body?! It made total sense to me to have a system with multiple steps for my body that would take care of it 100%.
Kayo is different because its face grade ingredients for your body, made from the highest quality natural extracts & oils. I cannot stress how important this is because as I’ve said before, your skin absorbs what you put on it. If you are putting chemicals on your body, it is absorbing that into your skin people! Its just as important as what we put into our bodies so that we can fully thrive!
While I have my favorites I am honestly in love with every product in the Kayo line & have seen a difference in my skin in the short amount of time I’ve been using them 🙂 I love that it is all natural and free of all the crap – yes crap – that is in most beauty products. Its free of parabens, sulfates, petrolatum, synthetic colors, pegs, tea, dea, gmo’s & mineral oils. Its also made in the USA which is awesome! Another reason I really respect Kayo is because of it’s founders, Christine & Carrington, care & passion about their products. They actually use them, have done their research and are creating a product that actually helps people! Now let’s get on to the goods 😉
Kayo is a line of five products that fight environmental stressors, create more resilient skin, hydrate & tone, and help prevent skin from aging. You can use all together or by themselves. Personally when I’m home I use all five steps daily and when I traveled I took my faves to make sure I was still giving my skin its daily nourishment.
I start EVERYDAY with the Daily Vitamin Boost after I’ve washed my face. I LOVEEEE this stuff! It gives my skin a little boost – literally! Its made up of tons of vitamins including B3, B5, C, D3, E & K. This boost is one of my go-to products and I also use it on my face daily.
Second is the Daily Remodeling Cream: I cannot talk about this one enough! This may be my favorite in the whole line! Its so hydrating on a cellular level & has copper peptides to build collagen & reduce signs of skin damage. I used this on my whole body and & face while in Cabo because I got a little burnt and this calmed my skin and completely took the redness away by the next day. By far one the more standout products I’ve ever used!
Third is the Concentrated Sliming Serum: If you’ve tried everything to get rid of cellulite or tone stubborn areas this is perfect! I’ve been using it on my stomach and legs and when I stopped using it I felt a little less firm for sure. It can break fat cells down in just 28 days if you use it every day and I truly stand by that!
Fourth is another tie for favorite the Body Beautiful Creme! First off the smell is HEAVENLY! I can honestly sit here and tell you that I will never use another body lotion because I’m so obsessed with this one! It is so luxurious and very similar in texture to Kiehl’s creme de corps if you love that. I’ve never had a more hydrating lotion everrrr! This has a mix of hyaluronic acid which is incredibly hydrating, CoQ10, and Kayo’s super-fruit blend all there to keep the skin on your body tight and radiant!
Fifth and finally is the Cellular Repair Oil: I wait to put this on right before I go to bed so that it can be on for a full 8 hours. I also put this one on my whole body & face. I am a huge fan of facial oils but know you have to be super picky when choosing one because a lot of companies don’t use ethical & natural oils. This oil smells again amazing & also has CoQ10 as well as fatty acids to help stimulate cellular turnover & help with skin elasticity. Its the bomb.com ;P
Honestly I am sharing Kayo with you because I have fallen in love with the products and love that they are a true natural good for you product. I truly believe that Christine & Carrington have created a line that takes care of 100% of your skin from the outside in 🙂
