Kronokare is a brand with natural & eco-friendly cosmetics whose products are bio-degradable and packaging including labels are recyclable. They offer a variety of skincare products and kits for different skin types. I have the Kronokare Mini Face Care Kit for Normal to Dry Skin under the review lens today.
To start with, all Kronokare products are free of parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and silicones. All foaming ingredients used in their products are natural and bio-degradable. The raw materials are also locally sourced to minimize their carbon footprint.
All of its products are concoctions using various essential oils, precious oils & botanical extracts from nature.
KRONOKARE MINI FACE CARE KIT FOR NORMAL TO DRY SKIN
The brand’s Mini Face Care Kit comes in two variants –
- Normal to Dry Skin
- Normal to Oily Skin
Kronokare Mini Face Care Kit for Normal to Dry Skin has three products included in travel sizes –
City Detox Face Wash 30 ml
Polish the Blemish – Face Scrub 15 gm
Moist-Urge Moisturizing Face Cream 15 gm
My quick thoughts on each of the product below.
KRONOKARE CITY DETOX FACE WASH
Disodium Cocoampho Diacetate, Peppermint Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil
This kit contains 30 ml of the face wash. It is also available in 55 ml (INR 310) & 100 ml (INR 495) sizes.
Kronokare City Detox Face Wash is a runny, off-white lotion that lathers decently well. Disodium Cocoampho Diacetate is the surfactant here, that is produced from the fatty acids of coconut oil.
This is an all natural face wash and the “city detox” word definitely clicks with me. The smell is of natural essential oils – a mix of lavender and peppermint, that is a great pick me up in the mornings or relaxer in the evenings.
It makes my skin feel clean and bright after each wash and the fragrance mildly lingers for sometime post wash.
This 15 ml size can last about 10 uses.
KRONOKARE POLISH THE BLEMISH FACE SCRUB
Kaolin Light, Glycerine, Quartz Micro beads, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Neroli Essential Oil
This kit contains 15 g of the product, worth INR 225. It is also available in 30 g (INR 370) and 50 g (INR 460) tubs.
Kronokare “Polish the Blemish” Face Scrub is a white cream with quartz crystal beads for scrubbing action. It also claims to have beetroot extracts in it, but I don’t seem to understand how a product with beet extracts can be of white color.
The product applies easily on wet skin, but the irregularly sized crystal particles feel a tad abrasive on the skin. The face looks clean after the use and is not left dry.
This 15 g can last for about 4-5 uses.
KRONOKARE MOIST-URGE MOISTURISING FACE CREAM
Isopropyl Myristate, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Betaine, Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, Benzyl Alcohol, Tocopherol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Pelargonium Roseum Leaf Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Salicylate, Citronellol, Eugenol, Hydroxyisohexyl 3 -cyclohexene Carboxaldehyle, Linalool.
This kit has a 15 g tube that retails for INR 295. Its also available in 30 g (INR 545) & 50 g (INR 975) sizes.
Kronokare “Moist-urge” Moisturising Face Cream is also a white cream. Its very light weight to feel/apply and has a vintage floral fragrance to it that I adore. All ingredients in this cream are derived from natural sources. It also claim to have beet extracts, but the white product amuses me.
The fragrance is mild and stays for a few minutes post application. It hydrates the skin well. The skin gets a soft glow after use and this treats dry patches in the corners of the face well.
This can be a good face cream for the current dry months. This 15 g tube can easily last for more than 15 uses, since only a little is required for each use.
Kronokare Mini Face Care Kit for Normal to Dry Skin is not only great for travel purposes, but also helps to sample the brand’s products before investing in full sizes. I like the fact that the scrub and cream come in mini tubes that are hygienic and mess-free unlike tubs.
The ingredients list of the brand, their commitment to customers and earth is highly impressive including its naturally fragrant products. I loved the City Detox Face Wash and the Moist-Urge Face Cream, but the scrub not so much.
The full sizes of face wash and scrub are priced great, whereas the cream feels a tad bid costly.
Another good thing about the brand is that, both these 15 g tubes of the scrub and cream are also available for purchase individually from their site, in case one doesn’t want to go with the complete kit.
Kronokare Mini Face Care Kit for Normal to Dry Skin is priced at INR 695.
Another kit variant for Normal to Oily skin is also available for the same price.
