Beating cold weather blues with nyl skincare: Velvet Transformative Serum and Organic Shimmer Scrub

nyl skincare Velvet Transformative Serum and Organic Shimmer Scrub

I almost didn’t believe it the first time I read about nyl skincare but it’s true…their products are so pure you could eat them if you wanted to. Every single item is handmade, all natural, fresh, clean, organic. The nyl Foaming Castille Hand Wash is some of the best hand wash I’ve ever used, and I love that everything they make won’t harm me or the environment, and is vegan and cruelty free. I’ve discovered a few more favorites that I can’t wait to share with you – more treats for your skin that are perfect for colder weather.

The Organic Shimmer Scrub ($36) is truly a delight for dry, itchy winter skin! I can’t stand the way my skin reacts to dry indoor heat. I get itchy from head to toe unless I am careful to use really hydrating body products. Well, the Organic Shimmer Scrub is right up my ally…beautiful, blingy, fun and it’s an exfoliator, moisturizer, and a shimmer all in one jar!

Look at how pretty this is! You use it in the shower after cleansing. Just massage it in and the sugar exfoliates away dead skin then sort of melts away and you are left with super soft and exfoliated skin. Once that sugar melts it’s a great time to shave too, because skin is a little slippery. The shimmer is from mica and is subtle, but just what you for a night on the town. It’s really lovely! It also brightens up my shower and makes me smile every time. The Shimmer Scrub comes with an adorable wooded spoon, so you can stir it up, but it also helps to store this baby upside down because the contents do settle.  There is no added fragrance so anyone can use this lovely exfoliant.

Another fantastic cold weather treat for your skin – but this time your face – is the Velvet Transformative Serum ($68). Those of you with dry skin all year long will be in heaven with this super hydrating treatment. My skin gets very dry with indoor heat, so the Velvet Transformative Serum has been amazing, especially at nighttime. It’s a combination of high quality oils and botanical extracts that hydrate, clarify, brighten, and smooth fine lines. Like every single beautiful organic oil possible is in this baby – I think they stuffed every antioxidant possible in here. You can use it alone on your skin or mix it into your moisturizing cream or lotion as a booster. There’s no fragrance so anyone can use this, and if you have any issues with dryness I highly recommend it!
