JK as her initials states is a popular Kenyan Style, beauty and lifestyle blogger who shares her experiences through her impeccable style, quirky youtube videos, beauty tutorials and interesting vacation spots. I mean her blog is interesting! All I can do is sip tea watch and learn. Her skin care routine is pretty simple as you know she does have flawless skin and knows what works for her.
For JK’s morning routine she says;
1) I wash my face with L’OREAL PARIS, Skin Perfection purifying gel wash and an exfoliating glove.
2) With a clean face, I will then tone and cleanse my skin with Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner.
3) Lastly, I will moisturize my skin with Bio Oil. Great for dry skin, uneven skin tone and scars.
I will repeat the same routine as my morning but this time I will not use the exfoliating glove. Just the face wash.

Although her skin care routine is very detailed show casing an array of different products, one thing she clings to are her baby oil/ wipes for pre-cleansing the skin.
“For my first cleanse I use Baby-oil and Baby-wipes. “Why Baby products?” you ask, because I personally believe anything formulated for a baby’s skin will be mild enough to work for even the most sensitive of adult’s skin. The wipes pictured above, are the absolute best art getting the job done, they are much thicker than regular wipes and very ‘wet’, so just glide smoothly over the skin without tugging. I literally only need one wipe for my entire face.”

Sharon Mundia is another fantastic Kenyan blogger who is also one to watch. She’s the fashion and beauty blogger behind the blog This is Ess where she shares her personal style, beauty tips and bits and pieces of her life that are set to inspire African women. Sharon says
“What I’ve come to realize is that fashion isn’t just about being trendy and cute, it’s about expressing your character, building your confidence and ultimately celebrating yourself. Each morning you wake up with a blank canvas and just like an artist, you choose to paint a picture of yourself that you then share with the world. My hope for my blog is to inspire women around Africa to be the best damn artists they could possibly be”.
