Nakin Skincare Review
As you may know, this year I have been looking more closely at the kind of skincare I choose. I’m on a ‘no buy year’ so this has really made me think more about what I put on my skin. I was asked to review Nakin’s natural skincare range and when I looked a little more into the brand I thought it would both be a great one to introduce people to as well as not containing parabens, SLS, pertrochemicals, artificial fragrance or colours.
Its a simple range that contains cleansers, face & eye creams, oil and serum treatments. Each product has been exclusively formulated for Nakin, made in England and is cruelty-free.
My skin is sensitive generally dehydrated or sometimes very dry, but I still have an oily skin around my nose.
My Nakin Skincare Review
- Nakin Face Serum £25 An anti-ageing face serum rich in antioxidant oils and extracts. The active formula includes hibiscus, pomegranate, rosemary leaf extract, green tea and hyaluronic acid. I found this to be great to nourish and moisturise my skin, layering the Nakin moisturiser on top. Loved the smell, it reminded me of an expensive spa. I’ll definitely felt the benefits from using this quite quickly.
- Nakin Anti-Ageing Advanced Cleansing Milk £15. I tend to use a wash-off cleansing oil or balm on most of my face, but I’m always on the lookout for a cream that would work for my eye makeup. Like most people, it needs to be gentle but effective and this worked brilliantly for me. With hyaluronic acid, pomegranate and seaweed extract in the formula.
- Nakin Active Dew Face Cream £20. This moisturiser is for dry, normal and sensitive skin (there is also one for oily skin) also the winner of The Beauty Shortlist 2018 Editor’s Choice Award, our moisturiser is the ultimate rescue for dry skin. I found it to be very long-lasting. Botanical and bio-hyaluronic acid work with pomegranate, baobab and argan oil to build strength. It’s 98% natural and formulated without parabens, SLES, propylene glycol and artificial colour and fragrance. Also Vegan & cruelty–free.
- Nakin Revitalising Face Oil £22. This is beautifully nourishing oil. I would recommend it as part of your evening routine, as it’s so rich. I find face oils can block my pores around my nose sometimes, this one didn’t however. It was fairly thin and I noted from the website ‘…with esters similar to the natural sebum of skin, it helps to provide moisture and a protective barrier to the skin.’ I think it was my favourite product of the range, but I am a sucker for a good face oil.
- Nakin Eye Cream Complex £18 I’m a little sceptical of eye creams, I’m just unsure if they have an effect on me. I do still use them though, and I’ve decided that cream rather than gel formulas work better for me. I did like this but it was a little too light for me I think, I prefer something a little thicker. It did take away any of the dry feeling around my eyes, and didn’t leave my eye area puffy.
So as you can see not only does it look beautiful, simple and classy overall I really love this range. I think my only criticism would be I would prefer if the bottle and jars were glass so that they were recyclable.
