With Mother's Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time to indulge Mum (or yourself) with some organic skin care! One brand that we absolutely love for so many reasons is zk'in Organics. zk'in have proved to be one of the best certified organic skin care available in the natural beauty industry, having won several awards such as the Nature and heath Beauty Award 2016. Their award winning products demonstrate their commitment to honest beauty, with zero tolerance to unnatural ingredients. Don't take our word for it though, clinical tests prove it! The entire zk’in range has met the highest and strictest international standards within the organic skincare industry to achieve COSMOS organic certification on every organic skin care product. We also love the fact that zk'in are Australian made and have zero tolerance to animal cruelty.
All zk’in products are dermatologically tested and approved non-irritant by a dermatologist so you can trust zk’in to naturally care for your skin, regardless of your type of skin.
Below are some of the zk'in products I've been using and my reviews:
zk'in Brightening & Hydrating Masque: This natural and uniquely formulated masque is loaded with skin loving antioxidants found in organic Cocoa and organic Aloe Vera to help improve circulation, temporarily brighten skin tone, while increasing hydration to restore summer damaged skin back to health.
Overall verdict: This masque works very well with clearing out impurities and clogged pores. I found the smell at first a bit different as it smells like chocolate and radishes (strange combo I know!) But once you get over the unique smell of the product, you realise how well it works on your skin once washed off! I found it was easy to use and dried well - within 10 mins if a thin layer was applied and left my skin feeling refreshed and nourished.
Pros: A must have weekly treatment for my skin! I've been using this on a weekly basis for the past 2 months. So far, it's one the best natural masque that I have used and does exactly what it's supposed to do. I've noticed the visible difference in my skin with brightness and more even tone.
Cons: Can't fault it really but remember to apply only a thin layer as it takes much longer to dry when applied too thick.
Rating: 5 stars!
zk'in Rejuvenating Moisturiser: A nourishing high performing moisturiser bursting with superfoods; organic Brown Seaweed, Rosehip Oil and Aloe Vera, plus skin repairing organic clinical active Cotton Thistle . I found this moisturiser helped relieve the dry patches on my face especially around the outer cheek and neck area. A major bonus is that it tackles wrinkles and enhances skin appearance, by promoting in-depth skin regeneration.
Overall verdict: I've been using this product for over 2 months and have noticed the difference since. I use this moisturiser twice a day morning and night. I could definitely see an improvement with my dry skin patches within 2 weeks use.
Pros: Great handy size and so far has lasted me a while. Only a small amount is required and it feels great on my face and absorbs well. It's rich and non-greasy with a light creamy texture.
Cons: Again, I'm very happy with this moisturiser and will definitely continue to use it.
Rating: 4 and half stars!
zk'in Line Smoothing Serum: This serum is fantastic, an absolute winner!It features Paracress extract (Gatuline Expression) which is a clinically tested active to smooth expression lines and wrinkles and works similarly to well known injectables but is safe, non-toxic and gentle.
Overall verdict: I've been using this product along with the zk'in Rejuvenating Moisturiser for over 2 months and have noticed the visible difference in my eye area. I use this serum twice daily and cannot go without it so I can see why it's very popular. This serum is definitely one to try if you're looking to go organic with your skin care.
Pros: A little goes a long way. It's very gentle and soothing and can be used as a moisturiser all over the face. Absorbs very quickly and is lightweight and firming.
Cons: Cannot fault it.
Rating: 5 stars!
zk'in Hydrating Mist: This hydrating mist is a unique skin hydrator that harnesses the power of Fucus vesiculosus - a brown seaweed extract that has been clinically tested to help fight UV damage and improve skin moisture levels. Thriving in a harsh natural climate, this key ingredient’s robust properties offers skin excellent repair, rehydration and complexion enhancement.
Overall verdict: This is the first time incorporating a mist into my daily skin care routine and I can say that I won't look back. This mist is the perfect pre-moisturiser spray for time poor mums like me who sometimes forgets to moisturise! It's soothing and cooling on my skin and actually helps my moisturiser absorb better. I also love the fresh natural scent knowing that it's hydrating my skin without irritation.
Pros: Handy size for travel and has lasted me a while. It's easy and quick to use with no mess, just spray, pat down gently and you're done!
Cons: No issues. Again, I'm very happy with this mist and glad that I've tried it.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mums!
