I was fortunate enough to receive a care package from the lovely Amber Magus, the founder behind the minimal skin care brand Naked Skincare & Apothecary. She knew I was a skincare aficionado which led us to talking about doing a review on a few of her popular products!
Some people have a misconception about using cleansing oils on their skin. People often believe that it will add more oil and clog up their pores when really it does the opposite! This product by Naked has a nice blend of botanical carrier oils that help remove makeup, build up in the pores, as well as add extra moisture to the skin without clogging your pores. Some of the carrier oils in this product are:
Castor Oil - which is known to restore the skin as well as act as an antimicorbial and anti-inflammatory agent that helps reduce acne. Perfect for those who have sensitive skin.
Safflower Oil - which is rich in linoleic acid (which adds a natural plumpness to the skin) and very beneficial for those who have acne prone skin! It's also an excellent agent that helps calm and heal the skin, while preventing the production of acne.
Sweet Almond Oil- is jammed packed with Vitamin A and also helps reduce acne. Almond oil is great for almost all skin types! Anyone who has extremely dry skin or sensitive skin can reach for this product typically without any worry that it'll break them out.
Tamanu Oil - acts as a lovely topical healing agent somewhat like castor oil that allows the skin to heal with it's antimicrobial and antioxidant properties!
This. Mask. Is. AMAAAAZING. I used this mask for the first time 5 weeks ago and I can't believe how much I still have left in this 2 oz container! I typically reach for this mask between 1-2 times a week and it is superb. All you need to do is take a tiny amount of this clay mask powder, mix it with a dash of water to create a paste, allow it to become easily spreadable on your face and voila! Leave it on for for 10-15 minutes allowing the clay to dry and your face and wash it off! I loved the feeling of how tight it made my skin after washing it off! The firmness was amazing and the glow in my skin was definitely visible! If you're a mask junkie like myself, I highly suggest that you grab one of these masks! They're a great product to take with you when you're on a trip with it's compact packaging. ( Tip: Use a flat foundation brush to spread masks on your face, it'll lessen the amount of pulling you would do if you used your fingers!)
Ahhh...the lovely smell of this floral toner is so calming. I loved using this floral toner after I cleansed my face ! You can either directly spray this on your face after cleansing, or you can simply spray it on a cotton pad to remove excess dirt on your skin which is what I prefer to do.
This nourishing oil will do wonders on your skin during these harsh winter months that we have coming our way in Winnipeg (CANADA) ! This hydrating oil is high in vitamins and minerals and contains : Safflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Hempseed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Argan Oil as well as Cedar Essential Oil ! ALL THESE OILS play an important role in healing the imperfections on your skin. Did you know that grape seed oil acts as an anti-aging ingredient? I've used grape seed oil in many of my homemade skin bars that I love slather all over my body after a shower! These oils do not clog the pores allowing the skin to absorb it's properties.
The gang's all here! I hope you enjoyed this review on Naked Skincare and Apothecary! I want to thank Amber for sending me these products and allowing me to add these wonderful products to my daily regimen! I absolutely love using natural products, especially when I'm smothering my little 1 year old with kisses all day!
