A couple of months ago I reviewed the Kashmere Kollections Luxurious Toning Oil (read here) and basically told you all about how much I loved it & couldn't get enough of it! I loved the way it smelled, the ingredients, the claims... and today, 3 months later, I still love it & use it!
One of the major reasons I fell in love with this oil was because it smells so good! The scent in itself is so calming, It has a very light, sweet scent. I can't really describe it, it just smells...good! And it actually works because of all the great ingredients in the oil. Kim mentioned on social media that her oil would work effectively on a handful of different skin issues, such as eczema, psoriasis, wrinkles, aging, scars, stretch marks, etc.
What it is
Kashmere Kollections is a lavish skincare line that was created by Kim Zolciak, best known from Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta & Don't Be Tardy. The line currently offers a few products: a body polish, sunless tanning lotion, firming lotion & toning oil. She has expanded her line & now offers a Purifying Masque for the face, as promised, in my previous post! (For more information & pricing visit: KashmereKollections.com)
After trying the Toning Oil, I was lucky enough to add the Firming Lotion, Sunless Tanning Lotion and Silken Body Polish to my collection. All exceptional products! None of them disappoint and they all have that wonderful smell! I described it to someone as a sweet, almond-vanilla scent with a hint of coconut. Very fresh & light... I've heard others call it cake on the beach, which is a fitting description. Not only does it soothe your body, but it calms your mind as well! I always get compliments or get asked what fragrance I'm wearing when I layer the products! I'd love to see the line expand even more so & carry body sprays, perfume & body wash!
I found out that I really LOVED the Silken Body Polish. If you only get two things from the line, I'd suggest getting that and the oil, together they will have you feeling like a million bucks! Not only will you smell divine, but you'll feel so soft & smooth... It's been Heaven-sent, because my skin has been suffering now that the air has been so cold & dry from the changing seasons. I love body scrubs and I haven't found one that I like as much as this. One of my other favorite brands is Soap & Glory & I prefer the consistency of Kashmere Kollections. It is really a silky scrub, although it's hard to describe. It's not sticky and it's not too rough, but exfoliates gently. It leaves your skin so soft; It's a must-have!!!
I also love using the Firming Lotion, mainly for the scent... Layering any kind of body products help the scent to linger all day. It seems like a typical lotion, based on the fact that it works basically the same as all others. I haven't noticed any firming and It can come out kind of runny & fast, however it does absorb quickly into your skin. It soaks in almost immediately, which is funny, because when it comes out of the bottle you'd initially think, "Oh man, this is going to take 10 minutes to rub in..." but that's not the case.
I'm not big on using tanning products as I don't find them necessary for myself unless it's for a special occasion. I've only used the Sunless Tanning Lotion a couple of times, but I plan on implementing it into my winter skincare routine once I start feeling pale... I'm not sure how much of a difference it will make, but I'll report back at a later date. It does have the same signature scent as the rest of the skincare line though!
The order in which I apply the products is: Silken Body Polish in the shower after I've shaved & used body wash, Firming Lotion once I've towel dried & then Toning Oil about 5-10 minutes later, once I feel the lotion is fully absorbed. Layering the products will have you feeling so soft and moisturized & the scent will linger all day or night long!
Common Complaints & Solutions
1) The Body Scrub and/or Toning Oil has been known to leak during shipment... Both lotions don't present this problem because they arrive with a seal. I was recently thinking that the colder weather may also prevent as much leakage with the scrub because it'll be more solid vs. liquefied. When my package arrived, the contents was kind of 'oily' and it was during the warmer weather so it may have caused it to be more liquid-like during shipment. It wasn't a huge mess & was easily cleaned up. I noticed it, but it didn't bother me... 2) Another common complaint & concern is that that Body Scrub lid has caused minor cuts or slices... think major papercut! I had read about this issue & used the container with caution but I still got cut & it hurt! To completely prevent this from happening, do not grib around the lid, instead try to open it with your palm, twisting it from the top. The edges of the lid aren't even with the thread so it's sharp. I was so mad that I knew about this issue, was extra careful opening the container & actually cut my finger while closing it! Take your time and use a towel when opening and closing the scrub if at all possible to prevent this issue. I'm not sure if they've started using new packaging or not, but I've seen that they were placing "caution" stickers on top of the lids to warn customers. 3) The last real issue I haven't personally experienced but have heard others complain about is slow customer service. Kashmere Kollections does have a Facebook Group where you can get real help & talk with other customers & fans, as well as Kashmere Kollections Customer Service Reps, Skincare Specialists, etc. but the website also lists contact information & has a live chat feature which I'd recommend using if you're having real problems. Like I said, I've never experienced any issues with customer service, but sometimes people start complaining expecting the company to reach out to them before even expressing concern or trying to get ahold of the company. You can't please everyone...
These products are really something you need to give a try for yourself.. Like anything else, everyone will have their own opinions, but I haven't been disappointed in the products. I think they're worth the price, but at the same time you know I love a sale, so I'd try snatching them up at a discounted price; They do offer coupon codes & promotions from time to time so it's something I'd look into before ordering and they do have a rewards system, but I think these products are great even at full price! I love that the company is cruelty free & vegan. It's hard to find quality products, but they have great ingredients and don't test on animals or use harsh chemicals — you get what you pay for! The smell is like no other & you deserve to treat yourself. It truly is like an at-home spa experience! I'd recommend picking up the entire line for yourself, tell someone in your life that it's what you want for Christmas! ;)
