25 April, 2016 What’s New: NAOBAY Natural and Organic Skincare
I’ve been heading into the city every day for the last two weeks, and I can really notice the effect it’s had on my skin. Pollution, central heating, and a lack of fresh air have left my complexion looking and feeling dehydrated, and quite sensitive too. NAOBAY recently sent me three products from their extensive collection of skin, body and hair ranges. The package consisted of a gorgeously rich milk-based cleanser, an oil-based moisturiser, and a more lightweight, combination-skin friendly lotion.
Here are my thoughts on this lovely brand!
NAOBAY Moisturizing Milk Cleanser (£15.68)
This creamy facial wash feels like the perfect antidote to a day of inner-city pollution. I like to apply it to dry skin (with makeup still on), and let it dissolve all the grime and gunk. It breaks down heavy makeup and SPF, and washes away cleanly, without a heavy residue. The Moisturizing Milk Cleanser is formulated with olive oil, sweet almond oil, and a plant extract called spadeleaf. It’s been used for millennia to help heal scars, reduce redness, and generally keep skin in tip top condition.
NAOBAY Extra Rich Nourishing Cream (£32.08)
I’m not usually down for a huge amount of moisture, but when it’s been windy out, I just want to smear this gorgeous cream all over my face. Packed with avocado and olive oil, it offers an intense shot of hydration. I like to apply this to my cheeks, forehead and around my eye area, and also bring it down to my neck, décolletage, shoulders and arms.
If you’re after a lightweight lotion to wear under makeup, this is perfect. It softens, hydrates, smooths, and preps for primer and foundation in seconds. It contains rosehip oil and sweet almond oil to nourish, along with chamomile and aloe to soothe. It absorbs immediately upon application, so you can get to work quickly without waiting for ages for it to dry. I still love my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel, but this is doing the job pretty well when I need just a little more moisture and ‘slip’ under makeup.
All in all, I’m super impressed with what I’ve tried so far from NAOBAY, and I’ll keep you posted on how I get on with them over the next few weeks. I do think that the pricing is a little steep, but you do get what you pay for in terms of ingredient quality, packaging, and the results you see from just a few uses.
