Winter Is Coming, And KYPRIS Has You Covered
As the cold weather approaches, I like to get my winter gear out and make sure I’m prepared. I want to be certain I have a cozy coat that will work on any day or night, one that layers well and makes me feel fabulous. Not too heavy, not too light, just right. That’s what KYPRIS makes for your face –perfect versatile layering pieces (super clean and well-sourced, too). I’ve posted about my KYPRIS favorites here before, but a few products have been reformulated. Now that I’ve been using the new formulas a few months, it’s time for an update!
When I first started in green beauty, I was drawn to formulations with few ingredients, but I have come to appreciate the thoughtful and powerful way that KYPRIS products bring together mighty ingredients to gently love your skin. And the formulas are designed to work together for even more spectacular results. Layer them or mix a microemulsion in your hand just before applying.
Moonlight Catalyst: I loved the first version so much, I was nervous to hear of the formula change. Is it possible this one is even better? Yes, it is. If your skin needs some gentle but reliable exfoliation and brightening (pumpkin enzymes!), this nighttime miracle worker is going to give you some super smooth and glowing skin. The new additions to this formula include skin-renewing Biomimetic Epidermal Growth Factor and hydrating peach extract. With a very light neroli scent, and gel-like texture, it mixes beautifully with an oil – and I highly recommend choosing the KYPRIS Elixir that suits your skin type best.
Antioxidant Dew: I didn’t really give the original a fair try, because I was nervous about an ingredient. But this newer formula is gluten free, and it is genius. This packs more moisturizing and hydrating power than I thought possible in such a light formula. It’s perfect night or day. The Dew makes a great pre-makeup layer on its own, or mix with an Elixir for super powers of glow and protection. I’m a sucker for Vitamin C, Superoxide Dismutase, Ferulic Acid and Tamanu oil. Huh? Oh, those are fabulous brighteners and protect your skin like nobody’s business. One or two drops make all the difference, but add more as you like – you won’t get greasy. It’s great for the scent-sensitive among us, as it has no essential oils and barely any scent at all.
Beauty Elixir I, 1000 Roses: This bottle of perfection is the same formula as it always was, though now you can get it in a beautiful little Mini, too. Unlike candy bars that are called “fun size” but are just tricking you into having less fun, this Mini is going to last you months and months. I’ve been using this Elixir over a year, and have gone through a Mini and most of a full-size bottle. Definitely need to replenish this for winter. I’ve loved it in all seasons, but the colder weather definitely calls for it. It really has changed my skin, and it hardly seems right to say I have dry skin anymore. Use it morning and night, on its own or with the aforementioned products for some spectacular results on your stressed, overexposed and/or aging skin.
So much to love from KYPRIS. What are your favorites?
