nyl Completely All Natural Skincare
Originally, I came across nyl skincare through my friends at VeganCuts.com. I had been in search of cruelty-free, paraben-free skincare that I could feel good about using when I got an nyl sample in my VeganCuts box! Carol Sondesky, the founder of nyl skincare, graciously sent me ample amounts of her other products to try and fall ultimately fall in love with. nyl exceeded my expectations in that their products are free of all of the following gag-inducers: parabens, synthetic preservatives, petroleum, man-made chemicals, mineral oil, animal products, gluten, toxins, artificial fragrance/color, and nut oils/products. They are Peta-certified cruelty-free and Vegan company!
Most people don’t realize that when you apply lotion to your skin it should NOT sit on the skin. Lotion should immediately absorb into the skin without much effort. I am happy to report that nyl skincare’s Whipped Organic Hand & Body lotion did just that….absorbed quickly and left my skin soft but not greasy. The scent is subtle and fresh and the texture is silky smooth. The Velvet Trans formative oil is remarkable as well. I applied it to my dry lips and to a scar that was healing. My new favorite use is adding a few drops to my lotion so I can get more coverage. This will help the lotion last longer. The oil soaks into your skin very easily. Try the oil around your eyes and see those crows feet start to disappear!
I personally have very sensitive skin and when I take my eye makeup off I have to use something that is very gentle to avoid seriously cartoonish swelling! When I used nyl eye makeup remover, I woke up looking like I had gotten my beauty sleep rather than with post-party puff on the eyes. Sans-additives is the only way to go on your face if you want to age gracefully. If you are a fellow heavy black-liner kind of gal, you already know that it will take several swipes to get if off so its even more important for us to make sure that our products are chemical free.
The face wash is organic and comes in two different scents, Rosewater and Chamomile. Rose, with a high vibrational frequency, is great and refreshing in the am, while Chamomile, with its calming properties, can be used in the evening. Be careful though when using the pump for the first time. The soap is mostly water and will come out very fast. Although it will not take much to get a soapy feel and to clean your face well.
Other great extras to try are nyl’s sugar scrub, Castile Hand Soap, and Body Balm. There was nothing she sent me that I did not just fall in love with. There are also travel sizes to choose from and a little gift bag with samples. This is one of the first skincare lines I have tried in a while that I will be ordering again and again. I definitely stand by these products. Carol has done an amazing job of coming up with an all natural, simple and effective skincare product line that really does work. It is the personal time and touch that she has invested into these products that are earning them accolades in the skincare industry.
