Ryan featured several products during his lesson – here’s a bit of info on each one and how you may enjoy its benefits!

Vegetable Cleanser

An oil free, antioxidant rich gel cleanser, this formula breaks down all kinds of makeup, excess oils and impurities from the skin, making it ideal for all skin types. Pro Tip: Moisten a cotton round, add 1-2 pumps of Vegetable Cleanser, and voila! You now have your own makeup removing cleansing wipe!

Moisturizing Toner

Helping to restore the skin’s natural pH, this toner gently exfoliates the skin, removing the deal skin cells, all while hydrating at the same time!

Pro Tip: Use this in the a.m. to replace your cleanser, assuming you have removed all of your makeup the night before!

Bamboo & Rice Facial Polisher

Suitable for all skin types, this gentle exfoliant buffs away dead skin cells, revealing brighter complexion, clarified skin and refined pores.

Pro Tip: Make sure to exfoliate the skin at least once a week to improve the texture of the skin! Remember, makeup cannot cover or hide textures, so taking care of your skin will ensure you have the perfect base to create your masterpiece on!

Brightening Mask Kx

A brightening, non drying clay mask with Kojic acid to lighten dark spots helps to promote even, luminous skin. This mask nourished the skin, improving its natural elasticity and encouraging the skin’s natural cellular turnover. This beautiful mask helps to inhibit the skin’s production of melanin, making it ideal for those with hyper-pigmentation!

Pro Tip: Have mask night once a week! For reminders and other B. Kamins fun, follow Ryan Christopher on Instagram.

Pro Tip 2: Use the brightening mask as a dark spot treatment mask 3 times /week to alleviate the look of dark spots on the skin!
