BabyLove here! This next product from Kahina Giving Beauty is so special to me. I’d like you all to pay special attention to Kahina Giving Beauty face Serum because I love it! As I’ve discussed before, my son William has really bad eczema. I can usually control it fairly well, but there are some things that really get his skin aggravated. For example, I can still only use Dreft laundry detergent. When we arrived in Florida on our vacation in January, I had to strip all of the bed linens and towels and make sure they were rewashed. Anywhere we go and there is a rug, he immediately breaks out due to the environmental allergens that naturally lock into a rug’s fibers. His eczema is a manifestation of his allergies, environmental and food related, and when the outbreaks are really bad, he uses the highest level of a topical steroid that can be given to a three year old, and when that doesn’t work, we have to use a week of prednisone to help him. I’m not crazy about using steroids on my children, and I would appreciate you all giving me the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the unfortunate decision that he has to be treated that way. There is usually nothing left to do at the point in which we make the call to use the steroids, and it comes after a week of William getting no sleep, crying because he’s so itchy, looking awful and being covered in a rash. Is this an unfortunate part of Williams life? Sure. However, we know how lucky we are that he only suffers from a little skin condition and nothing worse.
When spring arrives in Boston, it also brings pollen. William is also really allergic to pollen, and has a tree allergy that usually sparks this time of year. Anyway, we were a day away from calling the pedi to get him a round of prednisone, when I figured as a last ditch effort, I would try the Serum Kahina sent me. I never put my products on him due to his sensitivities, but after I used Aquaphor on him and he broke out, his physician suggested mineral oil. Since the Serum is oil based, and the ingredients are meant to reduce inflammation, calm irritation, prevent moisture loss, and repair tissue damage, I thought I would give it a try. I applied it to William at bedtime, and the following morning I almost cried. My child’s skin looked almost porcelain. Even my husband, who usually doesn’t notice, could not believe the difference. I now apply this to him every night, and I’m amazed and grateful that I found this company and this product.
The Boston girls received the Kahina Giving Beauty Serum samples in their goody bags at our Meg’s party in February. I had a week or two to use it before they got their hands on it and let me tell you, I was amazed by it. My husbands friend had made it home safely from Iraq, and there was a party scheduled in his honor. Couple major things that you should all know about me: 1) I’m a huge worrier. I worry about the most ridiculous things. I’m the lady that literally cannot watch the news because the stories bother me for days, and 2) I shouldn’t drink vodka. Well, I drank Vodka, and a lot of it, and my husband found me crying in the coat closet. I don’t remember much of anything after dinner was served, but was reminded the next morning by my pounding headache. Anyway, my husband told me that despite my absurd intoxication, I still made sure that I washed all of my makeup off and had applied some oil to my face. Well, let me tell you, when I got up to go to the restroom the following morning, I got a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I stopped dead in my track, because I was shocked that my skin was GLOWING. I felt like hell, but couldn’t stop looking at how amazing my skin looked. Seriously, I was telling people this story for over a week. The girls at work were stopping me and telling me how much they liked my new makeup, and I hadn’t changed a single thing. It really was the Serum, and nothing more!
I know people are going to say that this product is expensive, but to me it’s priceless. Since it is an oil, please keep in mind that you only need to use a tiny bit, and the bottle should last months. Also, just for being a loyal meghead, Kahina is offering a special coupon code. Please just type in megsmakeup at checkout and receive your 30% off discount.
If you’ve ever trusted my opinion, then I hope you’ll give this product a shot. You only need to try it once, and you’ll be hooked!
