Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream

I've been using Kat Burki Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream for a while now, so thought it was time for a review!

Kat Burki are an American brand that fuse together nutrition and science to create a unique skincare line designed to be good for you, without compromising on results. In other words, they're the perfect option for you if you love natural ingredients but still want the effects of high-tech science! All of Kat Burki's formula's are nutrient dense and are designed to give maximum effects.

I first came across Kat Burki on Space NK. I received a mini tube of the Vitamin C Intensive face cream in a gift with purchase from them. It really was love at first use!

So what makes this cream so special? It's designed to nourish your skin and bring back radiance by brightening your complexion. It also promises to repair cell damage, help produce Collagen and protect skin from environmental stressors. The cream also rehydrates and softens skin whilst improving elasticity and evening out skin tone. All this without being greasy or heavy. Sounds amazing, right?

The main ingredients are:
  • 15% Vitamin C (sodium ascorbyl phosphate - a stable form of Vitamin C), 
  • Reishi mushroom - this aids absorption and is great for anti-aging,
  • KB5 Complex which is Arnica, Centella Asiatica, Lavender, Calendula and Chamomile,
  • MSM which is amazing to help heal and soothe skin,
  • Aloe Vera again to soothe,
  • Colloidal Silver which is anti-bacterial,
  • Ocean Mineral Complex - full of restorative nutrients. 
As you can see, it's packed full of amazing ingredients! 

Now onto how the cream feels. As the name includes the word intensive I expected this to be a heavy, rich cream. It's not! It's a gorgeous, light cream that literally glides onto your skin leaving it feeling smooth and hydrated. It actually gives a soft, semi-matte finish which I love as it's a brilliant base for makeup. It is however intensely nourishing. It plumps skin and soothes too. I found that it gives that tell-tale Vitamin C tingle when applied, so you know it's working! Scent wise, it's a light, fresh fragrance, that doesn't linger. 

For me, this is solely an AM cream because of how it performs and it's ingredients. It's gentle enough for daily use, making it a perfect choice for those who have had sensitivity issues with Vitamin C before. Now if may feel gentle, but let me tell you, it's effective! With regular use, this cream has kept my complexion looking clear and bright. It keeps my skin well hydrated throughout the day too. As you know I suffer from acne, this cream doesn't effect my acne or block my pores at all. 

The only catch with this cream is the price. It's £98 for 50ml. So it's not the cheapest, but for me it's definitely worth the splurge! I'll certainly re-purchase it in the future.
