Pukka Nourishing Night Cream – 50ml (£28)
I’m a big fan of the Ayurveda ingredients found in the Pukka products. if you look at their website, they seem to specialise in herbal teas, but also do a range of skincare.
I was in the market for a thicker moisturiser, to use at night, which would help with really dry skin. So I tried and tested this one and wasn’t disappointed.
The largest ingredients in the tube include Rose Flower Water, Avocado Oil and Shea Butter. Then we start seeing smaller amounts of traditional indian Ayurveda herbs such as Amla Fruit, Gotu Kola leaf, Turmeric, Manjistha root, Neem leaf and Sandalwood.
The cream is white in colour and has a pleasant smell. It absorbs quickly, is non greasy and a pleasure to use. The packaging is gender neutral so you won’t be embarrassed pulling this one out of your gym bag fellas. Pukka also do a ‘day cream’ moisturiser which I would imagine has a slightly thiner texture to this.
