Kalaya Remedy Acne 2 Piece System
Anyways this line comes on. It is created by a pharmacist and a doctor, it is Canadian, it contains no benzoyl peroxide or alcohol, it is non-drying, non-peeling, and the well spoken gentleman in the lab coat (a true pharmacist) along with the host and testimony videos had me convinced.
Both products smell like tea tree oil; not offensive but not lovely either. The tubes are huge, more like body product sized (150ml lotion and 250ml cleanser), they'd last for a while; and the price was right too $34.98 CAD for the set. They felt nice for the first couple of days. Then I got the rash.... well no... I wouldn't say rash, more like red blotches, which were super, super itchy and felt hot. They covered my ears, my neck, my chest, my belly, and my hips, but not my face. I don't know why I decided to test this out on my body first, but I'm soooo glad I did. My t-shirt rubbing against my collarbone was driving me insane, that's how itchy I was.
I stopped using Kalaya products, and treated my itchy spots with argan oil. It took a couple of days but the blotches disappeared. It seems I'm allergic to something in either the cleanser or lotion or both, Could it be tea tree oil? Either way, it's a big pass for me on these products.
Oh, and I'm also annoyed with myself, because by the time I remembered that the Shopping Channel has a 30 day money back guarantee, it was too late....
