Nuori* is an exciting new skincare brand from Denmark with an interesting concept. This brand is built on a foundation of freshness. Nuori is produced in small batches every 12 weeks to prevent the need for preservatives in these all-natural formulations. This ensures the actives are at their highest potency, thus providing maximum benefits to the skin. HOLA! The design of this brand is beautiful with minimal packaging and lovely solid bottles that feel nice in the hand. For the last 10 days I have been religiously using the Vital Foaming Cleanser and Supreme-C Serum Treatment.

The cleanser is a joy to use, unlike most foaming cleansers this is rich, creamy and deeply hydrating. It smells slightly fruity and 2 pumps leave my skin soft, bright and comforted. I found the treatment serum sticky at first, whilst vitamin c products often leave a residue on the skin I found this one quite uncomfortable in the first week of use. The stickiness is due to a botanical based glycerin which acts as a humectant, in turn helping the skin retain moisture whilst strengthening the barrier function. Besides the stickiness I find this product amazing at smoothing, detoxifying and brightening the skin, it’s also incredibly hydrating. I’m now 10 days in and the texture of my skin has transformed – it’s beyond smooth! The instructions suggest a full pipette of serum but I find 5 drops sufficient with no need for additional moisturiser. My skin is starting to feel slightly sensitive so I’m going to use this product just at night for the final 10 days.

Due to the lack of preservatives it’s important to start using these products asap. The box comes with a ‘start using by’ date and you will find the ‘use by’ date on the base of the bottle. My products have a start date of 21st of Feb 2016 and a use by date of 15th of May 2016.

Hylamide is a range of skin treatments that target every depth of the skin. The price point of Hylamide is more accessible compared with other brands offering a similar type of product. The packaging utilizes colour blocking to boldly distinguish the variety of skin treatments in the range. I’ve been sent the SubQ Eyes Advanced Serum. A couple of drops is enough for both eyes, I used too much at first and it was a tad sticky so I recommend using this sparingly. It absorbs nicely into the skin and provides that lightweight hydration I come to expect from this type of product. When applying anything to the eye area it’s a good idea to tap the product on to avoid dragging the delicate skin. I’m very happy to see a brand offering advanced skincare at a more realistic price.

As I sit here typing, my hands are lookin’ silky smooth, I’d say they look almost airbrushed. Want to know my secret? Hand Chemistry Extreme Hydration Concentrate! Hand cream is a product I rarely use, in many cases they make my hands greasy and I often forget to use one in the first place. I’ve heard great things about this brand so I was keen to get my hands on a sample and see if the skin smoothing rumors are true. This product has an unusual gel-like texture and I’m thinking how best to describe the feeling it leaves on the skin. It’s kind of powdery yet smooth. A little goes a long way so I’d recommend a pea sized amount. It keeps my hands hydrated with an even tone – it’s like a transparent BB cream for the hands. I recommend this to anyone with dry, frostbitten hands on the lookout for some relief.

Hello everyone I hope you’re having a nice relaxing Sunday. I was woken up early by my dog, he was bursting with energy and literally dragged me out of bed to walk him. I used this as an opportunity to go for a run knowing I can spend the rest of the day on the sofa without feeling guilty and here I am blogging. But, I love this so much it doesn’t feel like work. This is a quick post to introduce you to Kiehl’s which I’m sure most of you know as they are sold in most big department stores. They have sent me a lovely selection of serum’s and anti-aging products (prevention is better than cure) which I will share with you in more detail over the coming months. I’m currently on a 10 day vitamin C skin treatment so I need to wait until that’s finished before I can test anything else. Below I will list each of the Kiehl’s products. If you have tried this brand before please share your thoughts as I’m always interested to hear your feedback.

  • Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
  • Daily Reviving Concentrate.
  • Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.
  • Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate.

Happy Sunday! : )
