Hey guys! About a month ago I received some PR products from a brand I had never heard of before: Naruko Canada, a Taiwanese skincare brand. As you know by now, I’m a diehard skincare fan and love trying anything new so I was immediately intrigued. Naruko provided me with two options- to choose my own products that I wanted to try or have them choose something suitable for my skin for me. I decided to let them choose what they thought would work best for my combination skin. Keep reading for a list of products and my 100% honest thoughts as well as the information for the giveaway at the end of the post!
Tea Tree Shine Control & Blemish Clear Toner: the second I put this on my face I fell in love. This has to be my favorite toner in the history of the world. It smells like tea tree (duh) and I’m obsessed with the cooling, minty feeling it leaves on my skin. It’s such an amazing refresher for the morning! I’ve already used up half the bottle so I’ll need to be restocking this asap. I’ve been using this toner morning and night for a month now and it has significantly smoothed out my skin, and diminished my redness and acne by A LOT. I’ve received numerous comments on how nice my skin looks the last few weeks and I give a lot of that credit to this toner. It’s a must have if you have combination, oily or acne prone skin! It is also paraben and sulfate free, and retails for an extremely affordable $23.00 CDN.
Tea Tree Shine Control and Blemish Clear Serum: this serum is from the same line as the toner, and has the same beautiful scent. I love anything minty so this line was a definite hit for me smell wise. As for the formula, I love it! I’ve tried quite a few different serums before and I never quite liked any of them enough to actually put a serum into my daily skincare routine. They usually make my skin feel weird or tight or slippery if that makes any sense. This one feels more like a light moisturizer, it goes on so easily and adds to the cooling affect left over from the toner. I actually have been using this as a moisturizer during the hot summer days just on its own and I love it! My skin has been looking glowy and bright since using both of these products. The serum retails for $27.00 CDN.
am+pm super triple HA hydrating soufflé: this is a face cream that can be used day or night. It includes 3 types of concentrated hyaluronic acid to allow moisture to be long-lasting and provide a barrier for the skin. The soufflé has a very nice, subtle scent, and feels very luxurious. It came with a little scooper which I appreciated as I hate dipping my fingers and long nails into skincare jars, it’s unsanitary and inconvenient, so thank you Naruko! This cream is a bit heavier so I prefer using it at night or on top of the serum if I’m having a super dry day and it does an amazing job at hydrating my skin and keeping it healthy looking. It is alcohol and sulfate free and retails at $37.00 CDN.
Naruko also threw in two sheet masks that I wasn’t expecting so thank you so much! One is the Sculptra Perfect Youth Recovering Mask, full of vitamin b3 and acacia meant to revive and plump your skin. This mask didn’t have much of a scent which is fine and is formulated sans parabens and sulfates. You can purchase a box of 5 for $15.00, not bad! The second mask is the Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrating Mask which smells amazing! This mask gives you a cooking/tingling feeling which I find enjoyable and both of these sheet masks actually fit my face which is a first. The Rose & Botanic mask is great for hydrating or lifting your skins elasticity, while maintaining its firmness and working with collagen to give you a healthy youthful look. You can buy a pack of 10 for $24.00 CDN which I will be doing really soon!
All in all, I’m extremely impressed with Naruko Canada and can already tell that I will be diving into more of their lines and products.
