As fellow skincare fans will know, we’re always on the hunt for new cleansers and micellar waters to help maintain a clear skin. This is something we’ve all struggled with for a long time, because most products either provoke dryness or produce oils in excess, leaving our skin sticky or worse, clogging our pores. Finding products that are powerful and effective but also soft and kind to our skin is a challenge. At The Amazing Blog, we have discovered a new brand Nairian who we’ve heard lots of good things about. What’s more they produce an effective Micellar Rose Water and Cleanser which we couldn’t be more excited about.

Nairian is an Armenian family-based business that always has two priorities: Your skin and the planet. Armenia is a small country in Eastern Europe where the soil mainly comes from volcanoes, therefore it is incredibly rich in nutrients. Nairian sustainably harvest their ingredients in these local lands, on the slope of Mount Ara. They use principles of aromatherapy to make all their products which are cruelty, paraben, sulphates, synthetic fragrances and chemical-free. Nairian puts quality and sustainability at the core of the business and by growing all their products organically, where they are handcrafted and plant-based. They also monitor the production process from seed to bottle, in order to deliver the very best in top-quality products.

Let’s start with the Nairian Cleanser which is a delicately fragranced, gentle soap-free formula made with calendula flower and essential oils. It cleanses, calms and brightens both the skin and mind, as you inhale its flowery and zesty fragrance. Containing sunflower seed oil, citrus peel and rose geranium all of which have antibacterial properties among others, it soothes our redness and inflammation whilst maintaining our skin’s natural moisture.  The Nairian Cleanser is suitable for all skin types and is highly recommended to use on acne-prone, dry or mature skin. To make the most of it, use only two pumps and gently massage your face. To remove it, use a damp cloth and repeat the process morning and night. Ideally, follow it with your toner (i.e. Nairian Micella Water for optimal results) and a moisturiser of your own preference.

For us finding micellar waters and cleansers that do not irritate the skin has been a bit of a mission. Nairian Micellar Rose Water is gentle but also capable of deeply removing pollution and grime. Mainly composed with rose water, this micellar will not only cleanses but it also soothes and calms any inflammation. It also contains a hint of rose essential oil which spreads antioxidants throughout the skin, protecting it from day-to-day pollutants as well as preventing ageing. The Nairian Micellar Rose Water is suitable for all skins and its dash of glycerine, finds the perfect balance between oily and dry, giving you a soft and hydrated face. Wet a cotton pad and apply it onto your skin in an upward motion to fully activate all the ingredients.

We’ve added these two Nairian cleansers to our must-have list, we think once tried, you will too. With countless benefits, the Micellar Rose Water and their Cleanser leave your skin like never before. If this sounds like something you need, you can get your 200ml Micellar Rose Water for £28 here and the 100ml Cleanser for £28 here .

001 Skincare - Ultimate Renewal Serum Duo

Here at The Amazing Blog we love a bit of luxury in our skincare regime, so it was no surprise that we were ecstatic at the thought of trying 001 Skincare’s Ultimate Renewal Serum Duo. One of their new Explorer Kits, this duo is the ultimate skin set for nourishing, hydrating and renewing all skin types. It is particularly effective at rejuvenating mature, dry or damaged skin. We assure you, you’ll feel like a new woman!

The two serums, Intensive Elixir and the Active Marine Power Concentrate, are designed to promote healthy, balanced and radiant skin. The Elixir is an oil based serum made up of 7 bio-dynamic and essential oils, 4 pure plant extracts and just a hint of Vitamin E. It seems unbelievable that just a few drops of this magic elixir hold so much nourishment for the skin. We loved the silky texture and beautifully floral scent that came from the Rose Absolute. Since using this elixir our skin has felt firmer, moisturised and those dreaded dark spots have faded dramatically.

The Concentrate, on the other hand, is an Algae based serum designed to intensely repair environmental damage and brighten the complexion. The super concentrate is packed with a series of antioxidants, CQ10, Multi-Citrus actives, Raspberry, Green Tea and Vitamin C. Deep, effective nourishment seems to be pattern in 001 Skincare. After using the concentrate, our skin is simply glowing and it’s given a stunning collagen-plumping effect. In conjunction with the elixir, we are in skincare heaven. The beautifully packaged Explorer Kit even includes a vibrant, gold sequin makeup bag with a satin lining. The whole package screams luxury and indulgence.
