Hi Prismpop! I received a couple of products from Keys Soulcare in my Ipsy Glam Bag and wanted to give them a try. This is Alicia Key’s skincare line which I believe was started in 2021 and is a brand in partnership with Elf Cosmetics. The products that I received are the Be Luminous Exfoliator, Skin Transforming Cream, and the Obsidian Facial Roller. Lets begin!
Be Luminous Exfoliator Be Luminous Skin Exfoliating Powder | Keys Soulcare
This exfoliator contains Hojicha powder, lactic acid, mung beans, and oats. And claims to “Gently buffs away dullness with microgranules to reveal your skin's true radiance. Helps promote a softer, smoother skin texture. Helps illuminate the appearance of skin.” It also claims to be “non- stripping.”
The formula is a powder that becomes a foam once water is added.
There is 2.29 FL OZ or 65 G of product in the glass bottle.
The instructions for use are, “Apply a small amount to palm and add water to create a creamy foam”
🏆Skin feels clean and free of dirt
🤨 Face feels very dry after use
🤨 Hard to know how much water to add to the powder formula
🤨 Scented which can irritate sensitive skin
Skin Transforming Cream Skin Transformation Hydrating Face Cream with Hyaluronic Acid | Keys Soulcare
This moisturizing cream contains bakuchiol, malachite, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. It claims to “Hydrates, nourishes, and helps plump the look of skin. Helps improve the appearance of skin’s tone and texture. Calms and soothes the skin. Moisturizes the skin for a look of radiance and renewal.
This product has a lightweight feel and a classic cream texture in a white color.
There is 1.76 OZ in the glass container.
This one has a light fragrance but there is a fragrance free version available as well.
🏆Feels lightweight on skin, can’t tell there is product
🤨 Not moisturizing enough for dry skin, especially after using exfoliator
🤨 Skin still feels dry and right after application
🤨 Fragrance can cause irritation for sensitive skin
Obsidian Facial Roller Obsidian Stone Face Roller | Keys Soulcare
This Obsidian stone facial roller claims to make “skin feel revitalized, while improving skin tone and texture”
🏆Massage feels great on skin
🏆Could be helpful to reduce puffiness esopeicllay in the morning
🤨 Dont notice any difference in skin tone and texture
🤨 Didn’t help moisturizer application any more than using fingers does
Overall, the products weren’t terrible but I dont think they’re meant for sensitive and dry skin. My face actually feels way tighter and drier than before I used these products. But maybe give them a try if you have oilier skin. #skincarereview #keyssoulcare #Firstimpressions #exfoliating
