They have 8 products and 2 gift sets on their website so it is not overwhelming when choosing which products to purchase. They kindly sent me their Nakin Natural Skincare Anti-Ageing Eye Cream Complex and the Nakin Skincare Natural Anti-Ageing Lip Treatment Balm to try.
I suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome due to a chronic condition and also due to the medications I am on. I practically have it all the time and only get a few days reprieve from it each month. It means that the skin around my eye is extremely dry and sensitive so I have to be careful what eye cream I use.
Thankfully the Nakin Skincare Anti-Ageing Eye Cream Complex (rrp £18.00 15ml) didn’t irritate my skin at all. With natural ingredients, I found that it was actually quite soothing to my under eye area.
- Hydrolysed Hibiscus Extract: known as nature’s solution to soften and ease lines to assist crow’s feet around the eyes.
- Hyaluronic Acid: perfects hydration levels to prevent dehydration of this delicate area.
- Squalane: provides significant hydration to the epidermis, reducing lines and softening skin.
- Pomegranate: works to reduce UVA and UVB damage.
- Green Tea Extract: rich in anti-oxidants to prevent the undesirable effects of free radical damage.
- Seaweed Extract: has fantastic conditioning and toning properties.
- Chlorella Vulgaris Extract: helps reduce dark circles by improving circulation.
- Caffeine: works to compress blood vessels in the skin to alleviate eye puffiness.
Full List of Ingredients

The eye cream has a really lovely texture; soft, creamy and light. On application, it absorbs into the skin effortlessly. It really does calm and soothes the skin. I found that it also helped to reduce the dark circles somewhat. Fine lines were minimised and on the days I woke with puffy under eyes, it helped lessen them.
Dry lips are something else that I always seem to have thanks to my meds. So, I am always trying out different lip balms. I don’t tend to stick to the same one all the time if I am honest, I just switch them up depending on my mood.
- Mint: stimulates the circulation under the skin to plump and full lips.
- Baobab Oil: delivers hydration and superb protection from the environment.
- Shea Butter: a natural salve made of fats that provide healing and softening.
- Argan Kernel Oil: provides skin protection, healing and soothing from the Triterpenoids that occur in it.

The Nakin Skincare Anti-Ageing Lip Treatment Balm (rrp £10.00 15ml) and quickly became a lip balm I reach for a lot. It didn’t irritate my skin, which can be sensitive at times. I really like the lip balms formula; once on my lips it isn’t sticky and makes my lips really soft and smooth. I also notice when I use it that I don’t have to reapply it as often as I do with some of my others.
My Overall Thoughts on Nakin Skincare
After trying both the lip balm and eye cream from Nakin Skincare I am certainly impressed at the quality of their products. I love their minimal and clean packaging, which is perfect for their natural, cruelty-free products. Also, I think they are so reasonably priced too.
I think anyone looking for products that are natural, ethical, cruelty-free and also suitable for sensitive skin should definitely check Nakin Skincare out.
