How Does it Apply?
Both Vilot Skin and Kahi glide across the skin in a smooth motion. The Kahi is very slick, somewhat like vaseline/petrolium jelly, giving it a greasier, shiny yet slick feel. Vilot glides on, there is a creamy sensation, with a lot less of an oily feel.
It has a different texture, as if to compare the difference in lotion and creme. A lotion like baby lotion is light and doesn’t have much weight to it. Creme feels moisturizing and gives a good sense of moisture with weight to it.
Kahi’s feel is equivalent to lotion, Vilot’s is equivalent to creme.
The Kahi Multi-Balm smells like sweet candy or sweet flowers. It has a flower scent that can potentially irritate those with sensitive skin. If using in a sensitive area or around the nose, the scent lasts for quite some time. Can be overwhelming.
“Temporarily moisturizing, but that's the most I can say for this item. I saw no difference in my skin / fine lines. Switched to something else, and then saw immediate improvements to my skin after I quit using this. It's ineffective and therefore not worth the money.”
Vilot Skin has a slight lavender scent that is barely there and hardly noticeable. Once on the skin the smell disappears. The smell is not overwhelming in fact the lavender is calming and relaxing.
Kahi is .32oz (9g) per stick, Vilot Face Balm is 2.4oz (68g) per stick.
Kahi cost between $28 & $31 usd for .32oz (9g), depending on what store front you purchase it from. It is available on multiple sites including Amazon.
Vilot is $35 for 2.4oz (68g), available on Amazon, Walmart & via their website, most times it’s on sale for $29.99.
Kahi’s customers reportedly complain about the cost of the balm and how quickly they get through the product before having to buy another making it very costly. Some reported using it up before the end of 3 weeks.
“There’s nothing special about it and too expensive”
Vilot Face Balm is 7 times the size of Kahi Mutli-balm. One stick can last up to 4 to 6 months depending on the frequency of the usage.
Customer review on Kahi Multi-Balm:
“Without a doubt this product is expert at marketing a worthless product. Quality and benefit is no where near the value of the product. The bottom half broke off and cant even reach the end of the product. Poorly designed. I would much rather use this same money on other brands and product that is much more worth it. Save your money!!”
“This product did absolutely nothing for my skin. It is overhyped and overpriced for what it is”
“Temporarily moisturizing, but that's the most I can say for this item. I saw no difference in my skin / fine lines. Switched to something else, and then saw immediate improvements to my skin after I quit using this. It's ineffective and therefore not worth the money”
“I love Korean facial products! So I was really excited for this one. I have sensitive skin and it is currently very dry. When I first tried on this product I quickly noticed the smell. It is not a bad smell. But not a smell I want on my face. Even my husband ask if I had sprayed perfume on my face! The smell is really strong. 30 min after applying the product I noticed I started to get a little red and itchy. Especially along my jaw line. I honestly think it is because of the perfume that is in the product. I am all for natural scents. This scent is not natural. It reminds me of my moms or grandmothers perfume.”
“Not worth the money, greasy, not for sensitive skin, not for oily skin, film on face.
“But, at over $32 per balm stick, these do not last a month with just a one time a day use.”
Reviews for Vilot Skin:
“So so. Honestly I didn’t feel It was anything special it was greasy / oily but did give moisture from products consistency.”
“Creamy and effective, First off, I'm very sensitive to fragrance, and have often experienced boil like eruptions from perfumed products, but the scent of this balm is a very mild lavender and hasn't caused any negative effects. I was skeptical that the texture of the balm would be too heavy, but it glides on lightly and provides a very nice surface to do my facial massages. I have deducted one star because I did notice it did seem to create more milia, but after taking a break, I've found that if I rotate my products, and particularly, use Vilot as part of my nighttime routine rather than my daytime activities, it doesn't aggravate that condition. All in all, a lovely product.”
“A must have in your skin care arsenal, I love the face balm. I have purchased it twice and never want to be without it. I panicked when my first tube was low in anticipation of receiving my new supply. It moisturizes so well that if I don’t apply it one day my skin is still soft and plump from previous use.”
Added Notes Conslusion:
Kahi Multi balm is too small and has to be rolled on many times to get face fully covered. Although very esthetically pleasing, it’s very oily and glossy and doesn’t give a moisturizing effect.
Vilot Skin Face Balm is larger, creamier, more effective. It has 7 ingredients, absorbs quickly and has glow to its finish. For the price of one Face Balm which can be used as a multi-balm, you pay 7xs the Kahi Balm.
