You may have noticed that I’m having a difficult time at the moment with my health. I’ve shared some of the problems I’ve been having but not others. Lets be honest, I’m sure you don’t want to constantly be hearing about everything, because it just seems to be one thing after another. As a result of all of this, my skin really suffered. That is, until I tried the Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence *.

I had really high hopes for the Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence & I’m pleased to say that it surpassed these! I’ve been using this product for about a month now & started just as I was entering a hormonal breakout. Usually during these, I have two options. Let the spots take over, or treat them with Effacer Duo & deal with the dry flaky patches that this causes. With the Skin Miracle however, I was able to use the Effacer Duo to treat the breakouts, without ending up with dry, flaky skin too. What’s more, the post-spot marks disappeared remarkably quickly, much more so than usual.
The Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence has made my skin go from feeling dull, lifeless & flat to plump & glowing. This is due to the active ingredients, which make up 7 out of the 11 ingredients (see below). I use two pumps of the Silk Miracle in my skincare routing, one on my cheeks & the other on my forehead, chin & neck. I do this between going my face & moisturising.
In addition to being an amazing product, the Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence also has gorgeous packaging! It looks & feels luxurious. I’m not sure what it is about it, but I love the texture of the translucent bottle. It feels substantial.
Not only is the Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence a fantastic product, it’s also natural & cruelty free! This is absolutely fantastic & something I am keen to support as much as possible. Kathleen Natural skincare products are all 100% made in the UK, so you’re supporting local production. I love that Kathleen Natural are based in Royal Leamington Spa, as this is close to where I currently live, so much so that my husband & I are involved in the town’s orchestra!
The Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence, as with all the brands products, is hypoallergenic. You can read more about my thoughts on the miss use of the term ‘hypoallergenic’ in my what does hypoallergenic actually mean? post. Despite problems with misuse of this term in the beauty industry, Kathleen Natural’s use is very accurate. There are no common allergens used in the Silk Miracle Essence & I completely agree that it would be suitable for very sensitive skin & people prone to allergic reactions. Obviously, there will always be exceptions. There is no such thing as something that is completely free of allergen, after all there are people allergic to water & sunlight! But for the majority of people, this product would not cause a problem.
Now, at £58.80 for 100ml, the Kathleen Silk Miracle Essence is not cheap, but it is an investment. You are getting a premium product that really works. To give you an idea of how long the 100ml bottle will last, I’ve taken a look at the amount of product I’ve used up in the month or so since I started it. Using this as a rough guide, I think that I should be able to get 6 months use out of my 100ml bottle. Looking at it that way, takes the price to less than £10 per month, which sounds much more affordable.
Currently, there is no way I would be able to afford to replace this product once it’s been used up. If I’m completely honest, I’m struggling to replace my Superdrug own brand skincare & will continue to do so until my situation with Personal Independence Payment has been sorted. But, I would definitely ask for it as a Christmas &/or birthday present.
If you want to find out more about Kathleen Natural, they will have a stand in the Touchwood, Solihull shopping centre from the 17th-23rd October. You can go & chat to them about your personal skincare concerns & receive advice on which of their products would best suit you! You’ll be able to purchase one product with £10 off. If two products catch your eye, you’ll get the second one for half price! This definitely sounds like an event not to be missed.
