My skin is dry, dehydrated and prone to breakouts.
It is tricky finding a product that has the right level of moisture without being too heavy that it causes breakouts. Nirvana is an apt name for this product because it manages to reach that equilibrium. The proudly South African brand pride themselves by using only naturally derived organic ingredients.
FACIAL MOISTURISER FOR DRY SKIN: ULTRA – NOURISHING WITH SILK
It is suitable for dry skin. It is housed in a glass jar. Priced at R395 for 40g.
Ingredients: sweet almond oil, sunflower seed oil, vitamin E oil, sandalwood, geranium and cedar wood essential oils.
When dissecting a product”s label, bear in mind that the ingredient with the largest volume is listed first.
Let’s break down the ingredients.
Sweet almond oil: rich in vitamin E, helps with UV damage.. The fatty acids help your skin retain moisture therefore protecting the skin barrier. It revitalises and evens out your skin tone.
Vitamin E: antioxidant that repairs and protects the skin
Essential Oils: sandalwood is calming and ant inflammatory and has skin softening properties. Geranium promotes regeneration of skin, helps keep skin looking clear. Cedar Wood helps to rid the skin of blemishes. It also has anti inflammatory and anti septic properties.
The packaging feels luxe. I like that I am able to recycle or re use the glass container.
Although it is for dry skin, it doesn’t leave my skin greasy. It absorbs very well and fast to a matte finish.
I usually use a moisturiser and an oil separately. But when I use this product my skin feels sufficiently nourished. I don’t need to reach for my oil as often as I used to.
I don’t know what it is about this product but my skin can’t get enough of it! If I try to switch to my other trusted moisturisers (all HIGH END) pictured…. I find myself layering this on top of that said product. My skin craves this moisturiser.
My skin looks soft, hydrated and noticeably clearer. I didn’t notice my dark spot fade but rather an improvement in overall skin tone.
Looking at the ingredients my sentiments are justified. The cream provides adequate moisture to the skin. The skin is able to lock in that moisture and keep the skin barrier intact therefore keeping the skin healthy. The potent combination of essential oils ensure that skin is looking radiant and is protected from the UV rays.
I absolutely love this product. It is a dream to use. The effects are noticeably brighter and more radiant skin. What’s not to love?
For this level of quality and the fact that it is organic I think that you are getting what you pay for.
It is available from Nirvana Natural Bliss website.
My skin is dry, dehydrated and prone to breakouts. What works for me may not work for you. Do a patch test first when trying out new products.
Although this product was gifted, all thoughts and opinions are honest .
