Kalaia Natural Skincare Products
I started a “true” daily skincare routine about a year ago. Prior to that, my routine consisted of using face wash and maybe slapping on some BODY lotion on my face. Heck, I even slept in my makeup sometimes and washed it off in the morning if I was too lazy. (I know, I know.) I wish I took a little better care of my skin in my 20’s, but developing a routine has already given me noticeable improvements!

I’m also trying to focus on using natural products to care for my skin, instead of lotions and potions packed with chemicals, parabens, and gawd knows what else! I was recently introduced Kalaia - a line of natural skincare products that are sulfate, paraben, phthalate, and cruelty FREE and don’t contain artificial colorings or synthetic fragrances - and I am loving how this brand is making my skin feel!
I connected with brand representative Whitney Andrus, who offered me a complete online skin consultation and helped me select the right products. I described my skin, my current routine, and my skin goals and she set me up with the right routine! You can arrange your FREE skin consultation here.
Whitney also explained Kalaia creator Gaya Samarasingha’s vision for enhancing natural beauty and aging gracefully, which totally aligns with my goals of how I want to take care of my skin! And can we just take a minute and appreciate the Kalaia packaging? It is so well designed, elegant, and spa-like. Not only will it look good on your face, but it’ll look good in your bathroom!
Here’s what I’ve been using:
Detox + Balance Cleansing Bar
I’m not used to using bar soap, so this took a little getting used to, but it makes my skin feel SO refreshed! It doesn’t always get all my makeup off at night, so I’ve been using it mainly in the morning before applying my other Kalaia products. It smells great and I feel like I’m rinsing my face at the spa! The activated charcoal really works to pull impurities out of your skin, and the other natural ingredients keep my face balanced and hydrated. You can use it on the rest of your body, too, so it would be easy to keep in the shower!
Fresh Canvas Exfoliating Powder
I’ve been using this powder 2 times a week to wash away dead skin and impurities. My skin is SO smooth afterwards and literally glowing. It comes in a powder form that you mix with water to form a paste. This can be a little challenging to master at first, but ultimately you’ll want a toothpaste consistency! Then, spread it on your face, massage it in all over, and rinse! It smells like roses, too. :)
Keep Smooth Day + Night Serum
This goes on twice a day (ahem, day + night) after I’ve cleaned and/or exfoliated my face and neck. A little goes a long way and it feels great on my skin. After application, my face has a healthy glow and immediately feels firmer! It’s packed with Vitamin C and ingredients that stimulate collagen growth.
Hold Tight Overnight Moisturizer
This, my friends, is the real MVP of Kalaia products. I have terribly dry skin, and normally apply moisturizer 2-3 times per day. Since using this overnight cream, my face has been SO moisturized! It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and contains bamboo silica to stimulate health cell regeneration. WIN!
I’m excited to continue using Kalaia products and I’m so glad that Whitney introduced me to them! I’ve already seen noticeable improvements in my skin’s smoothness, firmness, and moisture. I would highly recommend setting up a FREE skin consultation, or you can shop the products directly here. Of course, if you have questions for me, don’t hesitate to ask! I’m happy to chat with you directly about my experience.
