This is going to be part eight and the last post of the my ongoing series #PamperWeekend where I basically show you all the amazing skincare products that I have been loving recently. Make sure to tweet me using the hashtag all the products you’ve been loving too so that I can get some more inspiration.
For todays post I’m going to be focusing on the skincare brand Nakin which is a natural anti-aging brand that is great for those of us who are looking for a bit more from their skincare but don’t want the commitment of using those super expensive and very thick creams.
From the Nakin Skincare range I have both their Performance Face Serum and their Eye Complex and both of these in my opinion are great products. The serum, if I was to compare it to some of my other serums such as the Clarins HydraSmooth and the HollyBerry Hyaluronic Serum, wouldn’t be considered my favourite but that’s not to say this isn’t a good serum because it is.
It’s probably obvious from the images that the consistency of this serum is that of a cream. It is super lightweight and absorbs almost instantly into the skin. If you do massage this in with your fingertips, especially using upward motions, it does give of a bit of a milky texture making it even more luxurious feeling on the skin.
The packaging of it, as with the corresponding eye cream, is basic and simple-almost clean looking to a point. I like that it has a pump applicator, and that one pump is more than sufficient to use across the entire face (pump and a half for both the face and neck). Scent wise it’s very organic with a slight floral undertone to the cream but it definitely isn’t offensive and it goes away the minute it’s absorbed into the skin.
I have to say if I had to choose between the two Nakin Skincare products that I have on which one I like better, it would have to be the eye complex. I have started using this instead of my Environ Youth Essential Eye Gel and to be honest I think I like this better than that one.
It doesn’t have any of the stickiness/tacky residue that the Environ one did and I also found this one absorbed much quicker than that one too. I didn’t however experience any cooling effect with this one like I do with the Environ but I say if I put in the effort and actually bothered to pop this into the fridge than that issue would be sorted (the environ one comes in a metal tube which is why it’s always cold without a fridge).
With regards to fine lines and my dark circles, I did feel that they were pushed back and have become less noticeable by using this. For future use I probably will keep this as my morning eye cream because it’s lighter and quicker to absorb into the skin and the Environ one for the evening.
All of the Nakin Skincare products are available to purchase from their website which I have linked below in case any of you are interested 🙂
