A’kin PureMAN Visibly Fit 24 Hour Moisturiser – 50ml (£18.00)
I highly rate this moisturiser from Australian born A’kin. The ingredients are as you’d expect from A’kin, top notch! The light liquid texture easily absorbed into the skin, leaving the skin feeling hydrated, smooth and non sticky.
The biggest ingredients and base of the moisturiser, after water, is aloe vera juice, cetearyl olivate and sorbitan olivate, which are fatty acids extracted from Olive oil. Plant based glycerine, sorbitol and panthenol, better known as Pro Vitamin B5.
Then we see panax ginseng root extract, camellia sinensis (white tea) leaf extract, centaurea cyanus (cornflower) flower extract and anthyllis vulneraria (woundwort) flower extract. Towards the end of the ingredients list we see the ingredients that help give it the nice fragrance; Orange, Mandarin peel, Ginger Root, cardamom seed and clove flower oil.
The pleasant warming, slightly citrus fragrance quickly disperses. The air tight pump delivers more than required to cover the entire face. The ingredients didn’t aggravate my sensitive skin or inflame broken capillaries.
