I have a new favourite skin care line! You can get very excited if you have been looking for an high performance skincare range, that delivers proven results and is yet absolutely safe, certified organic to the highest international standard and has an incredible honest marketing approach. It's called Zk'in (pronounced simply "skin")
A effective line of 12 products, offers enough selection for different skin concerns and ages. I have been using the line for a couple of weeks now and was initially planning on writing about my favorite products. This quickly become impossible as every single product was such a pleasure to use and just kept all the promises it made on the box. Seriously, this is something I hadn't experienced with other skincare.
I was lucky enough to meet the very inspiring founder of the line, Grace Culhaci in person and I was blown away; by her knowledge, her passion about the brand but most of all her honesty. There are so many unique facts about this line, I don't even know where to start...
If you are not obsessed with beauty and skincare, I recommend to just head out and start using the line, you won't regret it and I won't want to bore you with all the details. All you need to know is: It's working, it's clean and it's honest. All products feel and smell amazing too, some have natural coffee and cacoa extracts and excel gourmet aromas, while the line overall has very neutral smells that aren't overpowering. All textures are very fast absorbing, leaving a clean, hydrating and fresh feel to the skin. Wonderful!
In case you are more like me, VERY interested in beauty, please read on and be impressed by the details about this wonderful skin care products:
The products are created to the highest sustainability standards. While the package is well designed, looking all pretty and simple, its' also completely recyclable. It's also food grade packaging, ensuring no toxins will be able to get into your gorgeous skincare through the use of toxic plastics (think BPA) Zk'in products are not tested on animals and are vegan, CRUELTY FREE PRODUCTS. This is very important to me personally as I am a lifelong vegetarian and ANIMAL LOVER.
What impressed me as makeup artist was that Zk'in campaign images are stunning without the use of unrealistic photo-shopping, the model is shown as she really looks, with beautiful fine lines and natural flaws. Showing real beauty and realistic images of women is another idea I love and would personally like to see more of. Extra brownie points earned here. The line feels overall very well developed it seems that extensive research has been done to ensure that each product is absolutely safe to use and suitable for genuinely sensitive skin. Often I hear people say that that they have sensitive skin and therefore stay clear of organic products, as they won't usually react to conventional chemically loaded skincare, the reason might be that a lot of the smaller organic ranges don't invest in research, allergy testing and sensitive skin suitability to the extend that the big name brands too, which I always thought is a real shame.
When I do pick products to be used in my professional makeup kit the main criteria is always the sensitive skin tolerance, as I don't want to carry products that a high percentage of people will react too. The Zk'in line is definitely suitable for professional use in a makeup kit in my personal opinion. The hygienic pump packaging is another real plus and the most of the products are travel friendly.
Personal miracle experience: I have lately developed a rash on my fingers, some form of eczema due to the frequent hand washing and sanitizing required in my work as professional makeup artist. My sensitive skin suffered and started to look terrible. With the help of the Soothing Hand Cream by Zk'in and the relief moisturizer my skin has gone back to normal within a week and healed completely! No need for any medication or cortisone treatment! If you have problematic skin that is dry, sensitive or even flaking, try this cream! I will from time to time introduce a single product of the line and will review single products. As the line is too amazing to tell you all about it in one short blog post. Oh and by the way, it's affordable too. Moisturizers are about AUD $45.00, cleansers under AUD $30.00, so this won't break your bank either and is worth every penny.
Summary: Incredible high performance skin care line that is suitable for sensitive skin and 100% ethical and organic! Suitable products for all skin concerns are included in the line, from anti-ageing to acne or dry skin, the range covers it all!
