I want my skincare to be as natural as humanly possible with NO chemicals, synthetics, toxins or weird fragrances.
I also would like it to be vegan, cruelty free and organic when possible. That might seem like a tall order but look around and you will find brands like nyl Skincare which meets my criteria.
The creator of these products, Carol, decided to make truly natural products when she learned what was in other skincare products. Here’s what she says, “After some research I found that there’s a general lack of regulation in the skincare industry and especially in labeling. Sadly, there’s no clear definition of what “all natural” really means and that leaves a lot up for interpretation. As a result you can walk into a health food store and buy a product labeled “all natural”, that is anything but, and it’s perfectly legal. That was disturbing.
So I started experimenting and making my own lotion (I mentioned I was a little obsessive, didn’t I?). After a lot of trial and error I perfected my recipe — the final product is recipe #32 — and started using it regularly. Friends and family started using it, then requesting it.”
And I’m glad there are people like Carol who can create amazing skin care that is pure and natural and non toxic.
I tried several products from this brand and once you try them, you will never go back to sulfates and parabens. The Rosewater face wash works so well, leaving my skin refreshed and glowing- I always look for this reaction from my skin when testing a cleanser.
The Velvet Transformative serum leaves skin super soft, it sinks into the skin like magic and I swear it brightens the complexion too. The Gentle RoseWater Makeup Remover takes off every trace of makeup and it doesn’t bother my sensitive eyes or clog pores. I like to use this then follow up with the Rosewater face wash.
You know that you do NOT want harsh chemicals while cleansing your hands, the Foaming Castile Hand Soap cleans hands but will not strip the natural oils. Its not harsh at all although it does do a great job of cleaning!
The Gentle Body Polish lightly buffs skin- the result is smooth, softer skin all over. After that be sure to follow up with the Whipped Hand and Body Lotion which not only smells terrific -like light citrus- but is refreshing, silky and light. A real treat!
If you would like to try nyl skincare, here’s a link to purchase the sample sizes. I love the idea of sample sizes- try before committing! Although there’s nothing here I wouldn’t want a full size of, that’s for sure. People ask me all the time for recommendations and here’s another one to add to my list of approved natural skincare lines.
The nyl website is simple and lovely and I recommend you read it through. I love this brand and want you to love it too! Check it out here.
