I discovered the A'kin products when searching for cosmetics that were kind to the skin (free from toxins and harsh chemicals such as parabens & sulphates). Your skin is the largest organ of your body. As it soaks in everything you put on it, it's important to treat your skin with natural products that will truly nourish your body. What I like about A'kin range of skin and hair care products is that they are so delicate and gentle to your skin. Manufactured in Australia and part of the Purist Company (the name says it all, right?), these gloriously good products ensure you can be your most beautiful self naturally. I just love their power of purity mantra. A'kin combine plants in the most creative ways to bring out their natural richness and enable them to work together for your greater good. The plants used in the goodness-making process range from the most basic such as lavender and rosemary to the most remote and secluded such as sandalwood, rosehip, ylang ylang, kaolin clay, geranium, macadamia oil and much more natural goodies.
I particularly like the Revitalising cellular radiance serum which I use as part of my bedtime routine after cleansing. I feel that its 6 active organic ingredients - pomegranate, rosehip, amaranth, chamomile, calendula and seabuckthorn extracts. This serum improves skin texture, radiance, enabling you to enjoy smoother and firmer skin every day. Whether your skin is sensitive, dry, fragile or mature, this serum will help it radiate with beauty.
The Sandalwood & Neroli Pure Facial Cleansing Gel is my favourite face cleanser. The wonderful blend of panama bark, vitamin B5 and witch hazel gives it a divine texture and fragrance. The pH balanced formula is non-drying and gentle enough to use morning and night as part of your natural skincare regime. This natural facial cleanser is so soothing and will make your skin feel fresh and smooth.
What perfectly complements this cleansing gel is the Orange Blossom & Chamomile toner. This refreshing & soothing toner will leave your face feeling rebalanced, toned and hydrated. I use it for removing make-up and impurities, as well as refreshing my skin.
I also love the Lavender & Rose night crème which moisturises my face superbly. This cream is packed with absolute goodness - pure botanic actives like Vitamins A, E, B5, and C, and a nutrient mix of Omegas 9, 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. These carefully selected natural ingredients work in synergy to hydrate your skin, so you wake up with a fresh youthful complexion every morning. Giving your face a treat like this before bedtime will make you feel so good about yourself.
The Lavender and Geranium Body Moisturiser is also great for achieving glowing, healthy looking skin. It's enriched with pure goodness such as Echium oil – a rich source of Omegas 3, 6 and 9, and moisturising Shea butter, Vitamin B5, Australian cold pressed Jojoba, Avocado and Lavender oils. The only slight downside is that it is a bit too thick, so you need to rub it in more in your skin to spread it evenly.
Allow yourself to experience a spa-like experience in the comfort of your home every day. Your body will deeply appreciate you using these products (or any others from the A’kin range) in combination with a healthy balanced diet. This is an ideal bodycare regime for a healthy and happy lifestyle that you will be proud of. A happy body makes a happy mind and that's just ... pure bliss.
