I discovered nknaturals via Wonderlusting Lynda - her instagram FEED is always full of such wonderful things (so I blame her for enabling me - ha!).
Founder and formulator, Nicola has been making her own skincare since she was a model some 30 years ago. While living in Lanzarote in 2011 she created her skincare line and started selling at local markets. She moved back to London after 6 years to enable a wider range of people to be able to try and use the brand. You can buy online HERE.
The range is handcrafted with love using natural ingredients and I love that if you send back your packaging for reuse you'll get 20% off your next order - such a smart and eco friendly idea!
I bought 2 items - beautiful healing cleansing balm and raspberry lip balm and Nicola very kindly popped in two for me to try - life restoration mist* and a sample pot of delicate healing cleansing balm*.
Each product comes with informative notes about the product - which I think is a nice touch.
beautiful healing cleansing balm is gorgeous! It nurtures, soothes and regenerates the skin, cleansing and healing (it was great when I fainted over Christmas time, bashing my nose - it soothed my grazes!) It's also good at helping to fade scars, balance the skin, use as a luxe face mask overnight, use on eyebrows and lashes to help growth and condition, use on nails, cuticles, elbows and feet and to tame flyaways - you know I adore a multi-use product!
To use as a cleansing balm: apply a small amount to the skin, massaging in to remove make up and daily grime. Remove with warm damp muslin cloth and follow with a spritz of life restoration mist.
As it's preservative free it should be stored in a cool dry place. The balm is made with skin loving ingredients including Jojoba and Cacay oils, raw organic beeswax from local bee farmer, Sea Buckthorn, Sunflower Oil, Rosemary, Fragonia and Amber resin. Made in a batch of approximately 10 pots.
life restoration mist* can be used on the face and body providing instant relief from dry, taught sensitive skin. It calms, refreshes, soothes and hydrates.
To use: spritz directly onto the skin, apply to cotton pads before swiping over the skin after cleansing or spray onto cotton pads and apply to the eyes for a soothing treat.
Inside you'll find Frankincense hydrosol, Chamomile hydrosol, lupine peptides, Frangipani, Petitgrain, Benzoin and Witch Hazel Glycerol. It's a lovely product and would be great to pack for your summer holidays. I've currently been enjoying using it spritzed on my skin after cleansing.
Raspberry Lip Balm deeply nourishes the lips. It contains a high level of mineral sun protection. Use on it's own or with lipstick and before bed for an intensive treat. It contains Fair Trade Raw Organic Shea Butter, Vanilla, Titanium dioxide, freeze dried raspberry powder and Oat Kernel flour.
The balm is lovely to use but it only has a whisper of raspberry. I'd personally prefer a stronger scent.
delicate healing cleansing balm (sample pot)* - gently healing and cleansing the balm is good for calming sensitive skins. It's perfect for those prone to eczema, psoriasis and rosacea when the balm is massaged onto the affected area.
To use: cleansing - apply a small amount onto the skin, massaging in before removing with a warm damp muslin cloth, massage onto nails and cuticles and use on the ends of the hair to condition and calm frizz.
The balm is formulated with Coconut oil, raw organic beeswax, Oat Kernel oil, blue Chamomile, Alpine Lavender and Palmarosa.
I've really enjoyed the using the whole range but I'd say my favourite is beautiful healing cleansing balm. Have you tried nknaturals?
