Nourish Argan Skin Renew – 50ml (£25.00)
I’m already a big fan of the Nourish range and have been testing their daily moisturiser with added Argan oil for the past month.
As always, the most important thing is what’s in it. The base of the moisturiser is Water, Jojoba and Sunflower oil. One ingredient that particularly took my interest was Palmitoyl tripeptide-5. This is a peptide that mimics the body’s own ability to produce collagen, so when applied to the skin it helps plump out and minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Then we find omega rich organic Argan oil, Selaginella Lepidophylla better known as Rose of Jericho, a desert plant. Kale seed oil, borage, wild rose, aloe vera, antioxident vitamin E, frankincense oil, ginger root extract and finally myrrh oil. 85% of the ingredients that make up this moisturiser are certified organic.
Having been using this for the past month and concluding it has an exciting mix of ingredients and performed well, I gave it to my mum to gauge her reaction. I honestly didn’t need to ask her because the results spoke for themselves. Her skin was noticeably smoother, less lined and dare I say, less wrinkled, partially across the cheeks. I asked her what she had been using differently lately and her answer was “Nothing, only that Nourish moisturiser you gave me“. My mum seriously rates this product saying it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin and feels as if it is smoothing and plumping.
The cream has a fairly neutral aroma, similar to Nourish’s Kale face scrub. I’d suggest this is not for teenagers, sensitive skins or anyone looking for a simple moisturiser. This is a power packed task master with some active ingredients, perfect for a 40 plus skin and those actively seeking visible results.
