A couple of months ago, I was so thrilled to learn that one of my best friends had gone to business school with a true beauty entrepreneur. Julie emailed me to let me know about Nyakio, a skin care line inspired by Nyakio’s own Kenyan grandparents. A first generation American of Kenyan descent, Nyakio combines the best natural African ingredients with modern, result-driven formulas. Designed for women of all ages, skin types and backgrounds, the Hydrating Face Oil is the keystone of the line.
I’ve really jumped on the face oil bandwagon. First, nyakio Hydrating Face Oil with Kola Nut provides the super-charged hydration that my dry skin needs. But it also works well with oilier skin types. Because this oil is light and non-greasy, it will keep all complexions hydrated and radiant. One friends who’s been using the oil reports “I was shocked at the results. People actually commented on how well rested I looked which was obviously false with a newborn.” (thanks, Tina! xoxo). There is a slight medicinal smell but it disipates quickly. The oil also absorbs on contact. I love the luminous finish it gives my skin and it works beautifully under makeup. Additionally, it is free of sulfates and parabens.
