Oskia Nutritional Skincare

Oskia is the new Brit brand that takes a nutritional approach to anti-ageing, combining cutting edge science and nature to offer a skincare range dedicated to rebuilding cell health and targeting the first signs of premature aging. Oskia nourishes skin from the inside (supplements) as well as the outside with MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane), commonly used in joint supplements, a form of sulphur that is a collagen and elastin builder.

Derived from the ancient Greek word for “delivering beauty,” Oskia is looking at ingredients closely to deliver optimum results. All their products contain the magic MSM, the special sulphur mineral with natural collagen boosting and regenerating cells formula that has been scientifically proven to work. And you can also buy Oskia pure MSM supplement on their own.

The star product is the range and flying of shelves is Oskia Get Up & Glow (£64.50), an instant revitalising and energising serum that visibly brightens skin after one application. Already receiving rave reviews, it won ‘Best skin perfector’ in the 2010 Natural Health Magazine Awards.

One of my favourites is the Oskia Micro Exfoliating Balm (£46). This balm, exfoliator and cleanser works extremely well and it’s worth the high price tag. It has a thick balm texture but melts easily in the hands so applies easily. I am using it instead of my usual exfoliator because the balm hydrates the skin at the same time and can be used more than once weekly. The granules in the balm are extremely fine and lovely to work into the skin without causing redness or reaction. The results are clear, hydrated and super soft skin.

Oskia skincare is available at Naturisimo

A’kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture Review

Review of A’kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture

by Catherine J.

Packaging: The A’kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture comes in a plastic tube with green lettering. It has a screw lid and is very easy to use. Instructions how to use the product are clearly shown on the reverse of the tube along with a very comprehensive list of ingredients. The tube is also recyclable.

Application: The A’kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture is for sensitive and fragile skin and is therefore unscented which was a pleasant change. It was easy to squeeze the right amount out of the tube and is more hygienic than putting your fingers in a pot of cream. The A’kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture absorbed easily and left my skin feeling nourished and well moisturised.

Ingredients: The packaging shows a long list of ingredients however the main ingredients contained in A'kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture are shea butter, chamomile & Vit B5 for calming, soothing, and deeply moisturising sensitive, fragile skin. It is rich in natural anti-inflammatory actives such as vitamin B5, vipers bugloss oil (omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids) and healing Vit E to help soothe, comfort, deeply moisturise and repair your skin. It is a 100% natural product and is also suitable for Vegans.

Results: I spend a lot of time outdoors and I found I only needed to use a small amount of A'kin Unscented 24 Hour Pure Moisture to leave my skin feeling moisturized.
