I hadn't come across the brand Kai before but it turns out this is a bit of a cult perfume and body range, with a number of A-list fans. Founder, Gaye Straza, created the fragrance as a means of capturing the scent of her childhood holidays in the tropics. I can't attest to whether this accurately captures the exotic white blooms of the tropics but I do love the scent. My very untrained nose picks up jasmine and honeysuckle.
Body Glow is a dry body oil spray and has turned out to be a bit of secret 2-in-1 product for me: not only does it help me moisturise when I haven't got time to apply body cream, it makes me smell like I've remembered to apply perfume before stepping out of the door. Win! Have I mentioned how lazy I am before? It's also packaged in a slightly squidgy plastic bottle, so there's no fear of smashing this on the bathroom tiles.
Kai Body Glow doesn't feel greasy on my body but I do find I need to wipe my hands after applying to my legs and arms. The formula does include silicones, so if you're trying to avoid silicones, this isn't one for you. I've included the complete ingredients list below.
Ingredients: cyclomethicone, caprylic/capric triglyceride, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, parfum, glycine soja (soybean) oil, aloe bardensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, chamomilla recutita (matriaca) extract, cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, linalool, hydroxymethyl-pentyl-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, isoeugenol, benzyl benzoate, citronellol, hexylcinnamaldehyde, 2-(4-tert-butylphenyl) proprional.
Kai Body Glow costs £25 and is available from Cult Beauty and Beauty Works West.
