The vision of the brand Nakin is to provide top quality, nourishing and natural anti-ageing products to give every age and every day women, beautiful skin. The ingredients used are only the best including plant actives to give the skin a real makeover. As the Rare Beauty site states, their products are “a modern fusion of science, nature and anti-ageing results – the next generation of natural beauty”. Intriguing, right?
The serums main purpose is to help re-generate the skin which in turn means it’s great for anti-ageing. Luckily for me, I can’t say I need a product specific for that quite yet. I wanted to try this as It’s rich in antioxidant oils and extracts, it contains hyaluronic acid and is said to improve elasticity of the skin. As someone who has recently suffered with a bout of medication-induced angry acne, a product that regenerates the skin aswell as having all of these extra benefits was the perfect pick.
The consistency of it feels light and it has a sort of gel element to it but is also thick enough to qualify as a serum. The bottle is a pump so it’s super easy to use and dispense the correct amount. The scent is really quite subtle and “barely there” with an earthy undertone which is what you’d expect from a natural based product and is definitely favoured over artificial and highly scented products, these just aren’t the best for your facial skin.
After getting into almost a month of using the product, I must say I’m impressed. I did start using these products with some other new cleansing ones from Dermalogica so my skin initially went through a bit of a detox process with renewing my regime in the form of breaking out in a few places around my face but it’s a normal process and it has been totally worth it.
My skin is definitely looking a lot more plump, healthy and bouncy from the serum and you don’t even have to use much of the product to get a good full face covering of it. It’s been such a great addition into my skincare regime also as in all honesty, I wasn’t using a serum before. I’m sort of trying to see it as a primer for my moisturiser, if that makes sense – it’s amazing to have an extra layer of hydration, especially at this time of year. Despite using it every day, I’ve still got at least half left, too!
It’s suitable for all skin types but is more specifically aimed at more dry or mature skin and is unisex. It’s 84% organic, the first water-based moisturiser in the UK to gain COSMOS Organic certification by Soil Association and is award-winning! A pretty impressive little product. As with the serum, this contains antioxidant and hydrating ingredients so they are a perfect pair. The organic aloe and camellia oils are also said to help settle more problematic areas of the skin.
As I said in my opinion of the serum, my skin did initially break out as part of the detox process but this is normal as part of the skins cycle with a new product regime. 4 weeks later and my skin is looking and feeling better than ever. I really do adore this moisturiser, it’s extremely easy to apply, the scent is gorgeously calming and I’ve got to say it’s an exceptionally dreamy base for makeup.
I’ve been wanting to try this product for the longest time since I saw someone describe it as ‘witchcraft for removing makeup’. It’s very unique in its texture and in the way you cleanse your face with it. It’s very sticky and gloopy and once you’ve applied it to the face, you then use your hand to sort of suction the cleanser and consequently the makeup, off of your face. After doing so, you then simply wash your face off with water and voila, the makeup is gone! One of its main selling points is that you’ve no need for a flannel or anything of the type to use with it.
I definitely enjoyed trying something new with this sample but as someone with quite badly eczema-prone hands, I can find it difficult and sometimes painful to have a lot of product on my hands which was the only downfall for me personally. It’s for sure more eco-friendly and cost effective than using a cloth to remove it with a cleanser and honestly really quite a fun and fascinating formula so I’d still definitely recommend adding it to your basket.
