Nakin – Revitalising Face Oil

I was very excited about this lovely skincare brand when I stumbled across them on Instagram. I tried out their Revitalising face Oil, here’s what I thought…

How to use it?

I applied one pump to cleansed skin and gently massaged in, paying particular attention to areas in need. Nakin Skincare recommend this facial oil for all skin types, but especially dry skin conditions such as Eczema & Psoriasis. Sometimes the oil is enough on it’s own, but I often use my moisturiser over the top to lock it in.

Ingredients

  • Peach Kernel Oil – delivers Omega Oils for all round age-defying assistance.
  • Olive Oil – leaves skin silky, soft and revived.
  • Baobab Oil – restores life to skin with its antioxidant and regenerating effect.
  • Argan Kernel Oil – provides skin with nutrients and helps with marks and inflammation.
  • Jojoba Oil – contains Esters similar to the natural sebum of skin that provide moisture and a protective barrier to skin.

Initial Thoughts

This is a lovely facial oil.  It feels so light, unlike other facial oils.  You don’t need much product, a little really does go a long way. The oil absorbed surprisingly quickly and didn’t leave any greasy residue. My skin type is oily/combination and I worry about facial oils, additional greasiness and blocked pores, but this oil didn’t feel heavy.  I applied this at night, and when I woke up in the morning my skin felt so soft and hydrated!  It has been a real life saver during this heatwave, when my skin has been suffering from dehydration.

I can’t wait to try their other products, especially their cleansing milk….its on the list!

This product was gifted to me by the brand, but the opinions are honest and my own.  Other skin types may experience different results to me.
