I love Kat Burki products. There’s just something about the line. All the products have this delicious cucumber scent which I could slather on myself all day long, they really need a fragrance scented like their products (hint hint Kat Burki). I’ve tried a good majority of the line and they’re all great products. I get really excited when they release a new product because I know it’ll be good. Kat Burki is a green beauty brand that uses ingredients beyond just plant and natural extracts. They use peptides as well. That’s one of the things I love about them, their willingness to incorporate things beyond just plant extracts. I love plant extracts don’t get me wrong, I just have a firm belief in peptides as well. Kat Burki also uses no fillers an cold processed ingredients so they’re more nutrient dense. The Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream is one of Kat Burki’s cult products. If you try one thing from her line this is definitely one to look at (though it’s too hard to only pick just one). Details per Kat Burki:
The Cult Favorite, Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream provides deep nourishment to the skin, specifically developed to meet the needs of lackluster complexion and to protect the skin from environmental toxins. At the heart of the formula is 15% STAY C a stable form of Vitamin C, powered by the anti-aging powerhouse Reishi Mushroom for greater absorption.

This cream comes packaged in a glass jar and smells like cucumber heaven. It’s a very light, fresh, green, cucumber scent. This has a light to medium cream texture. It’s got enough hydration for days in the winter and nights in the summer for my combo skin. I also live in hot and humid Texas so I don’t use any creams in the day during the summer (I do lotions). This cream is for all skin types really, except maybe oily. It’s listed for Normal, Combo and Sensitive skin types. It could be too light for dry skin, but maybe in the summer. It can be layered quite easily as well. This never feels greasy, heavy or suffocating to the skin. So no break outs for me.
This contains the Kat Burki staple KB5 Complex (this is in all her products). It contains arnica, gotu kola, lavender, calendula and chamomile for soothing, calming and antioxidants. This contains MSM which is an ingredient I love. It manages to give my skin a healthy feel every time I use it. MSM is a sulfur compound found naturally in our bodies and some plants. You can take MSM as a supplement for joint health and it touts other uses and claims. It’s also been talked about as the beauty mineral to help with anti-aging and skin health. It does this by supporting collagen production and health, as well as being anti-inflammatory. This contains a stable form of vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) which will brighten and help build collagen formation. Reishi mushrooms are high in polysaccharides which helps the skin retain it’s natural water. They also help in the skins ability to renew and repair itself. Reishi mushrooms also are anti-inflammatory. This cream also contains aloe, colloidal silver, green tea & vitamin B5.
The scent is amazing. I love the cushy light texture of the cream. It’s soothing and comforting to my skin in addition to being anti-aging and beneficial to my skins health. This hydrates without smothering. It’s really lush and quite good cream. I would purchase it again. It may be a little pricey for some but this jar has literally lasted me forever. If you’re interested in Kat Burki I suggest you check out her site and sign up for emails, they do gifts with purchase fairly often and its a nice way to try other Kat Burki products. Trust me once you try one item from the line you’ll want to try them all.
