|nyl's starter kit|
I was sent their Starter Kit ($45) which includes:
Whipped Hand & Body Lotion, Organic, 2 fl oz
Velvet Transformative Serum, 1/4 fl oz
Gentle Sugar Body Polish, Organic, 2 fl oz
Organic Rosewater Face Wash, Organic, 2 fl oz
Whipped Hand & Body Lotion $34
Since I just got back from a short trip and my hands (as we all know when you return from a trip) looked and felt awful, I scrubbed my nails and then applied nyl's Whipped Hand & Body Lotion to my hands before bed. That would be the test for me...how my hands looked and felt in the morning. They were great - hydrated and soft, but what really impressed me was how super-fast this cream absorbs. I'm not a fan of creams that feel sticky or slick after you apply. This is a whipped hand cream that works, feels great and has a very, very light, clean scent.
Velvet Transformative Serum $60
Usually I'm not a fan of trying new facial oils/ serums as I feel that I already have my favorites (yeah, I'm a face oil snob), but I wanted to try the whole nyl Starter Kit. This face oil is excellent AND probably the fastest-absorbing oil I've ever used. If you're one of those people who don't like the feel of oil after applying it, this is for you. My skin feel super soft (like velvet), hydrated and clear after using it. And, with these ingredients, you're getting the best of the best:
Organic Grape Seed Oil, Organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil Acai Oil Organic Argan Oil , Blackberry Seed Oil , Blueberry Seed Oil Carrot Seed Oil , Organic Cranberry Seed Oil ,Marula Oil , Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil , Organic Rosehip Seed Oil , Vegetable Squalene, Vitamin E, Organic Watermelon Seed Oil, Essential Oils
Gentle Sugar Body Polish $34
You know when body polishes have lots of oil that leave you feeling really greasy like you need another shower? You know when you're slipping in the shower because the container is 1/2 full of an oily mix? Yeah, well, not here. This body polish smooths and hydrates and is very easy to use. Scoop up the gorgeously gold sugar and scrub away. Love it. My skin felt really, really soft post-use.
Organic Rosewater Face Wash $28
I would recommend this face wash to those of you with really sensitive skin who want something super pure to cleanse with. I would also recommend it to those of you who don't like a creamy or overly foamy cleanser. This a very pure, simple cleanser that would never irritate your skin. To get an idea of how pure it is, check out the ingredients:
Organic Rosewater, Organic Vegetable Glycerine, Organic Castile Soap
(Contains: water, organic coconut oil. sunflower oil, castor oil, citric acid, and rosemary extract)
With vegan, gluten-free, organic ingredients that are as effective as they are pretty to look at, I think nyl skincare is going to be one of the big brands in this industry...quote me!
