Cruelty-Free Natural AHA Cleansing Liquid From Kira Kira Studio

This year has been the year where I have gotten into skincare more and stopped shying away from products which I think won't work for me and try different products out and try and figure out what actually works best for my unpredictable skin. Today's post is all about the Natural AHA Cleansing Liquid from Kira Kira Studio* which is formulated in Japan but is now available in the UK. 

As it's an AHA cleanser, I was excited to try it out as AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) is essentially a natural kind of exfoliant so I thought it may work for my skin as it's oily but also has some dry patches too, especially as the weather is changing up a little now. I also really like the fact that the cleanser is cruelty-free, oil-free and also palm oil free. It contains 3 AHA - Glycolic, Citric and Lactic Acid. 

Other properties the cleanser does for your skin -
  • Hydrate the complexion
  • Helps to stimulate collagen production
  • Promote cell turnover
  • Increase natural barrier lipids in the skin’s outer layers to help prevent skin’s natural oils and water escaping
  • Soften the skin
I really like the packaging of the cleanser - it's cute and fun looking. I think it looks different than usual cleansers because of all of it's pink quirky looking pictures all over. 

The cleanser itself states on the bottle and box that it can be used for both the removal of makeup and also as a cleanser. So I've been trying out this cleanser most days for the past few weeks and I will say I personally I do like the cleanser but don't like to use this on my eyes because it very slightly stings them and I just have other products which work better for me and don't sting my eyes at all. But please bear in mind I do have sensitive eyes and products which everyone seems to get along with to remove eye makeup, rarely work for me.

But as a normal daily cleanser (after removing makeup with a different product) it's nice and refreshing and definitely makes my skin feel lovely and well cleansed. I can tell that the cleanser brightens my complexion up a little too and it's an unusual kind of formula - it's more of a watery gel and it doesn't really foam up either. As always with AHA kind of products you should always use an SPF after use.

I do like the product but I don't love it, if that makes sense. I would potentially pick it up again in the future but I just feel as it's 2-in-1 properties don't personally work for me and I can only use it as a cleanser. But I'm not saying it's a bad product at all, it's a nice cleanser and does it's job well, it's just a shame it doesn't agree with me as a full makeup remover.
