DN-UNIK AGE-DEFYING ORGANIC SKINCARE

Happy New Year, 2015! Sorry I’m a little late, I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start. So far my year has been slower than molasses. I’ve been missing in action from my blog, but that has not stopped me from keeping up with my skincare rituals. I am happy to report that my face has not been dry this winter. Keep reading for the product collection that has kept my face hydrated.

A couple of months ago I was contacted by DN-UNIK, a french made company which represents the advances in organic skin care to anyone anxious to preserve the youthful attractiveness of their skin. Not only are they french made, but ECOCERT and Cosmebio Organic Certified, Animal Free, and GMO Free.

A little about DN-UNIK,

“Joëlle Klein, founder of DN-UNIK, stands at the crossroads of cosmetics, dietetics, aromatherapy and phytotherapy, and offers a rare in-depth expertise of 360° beauty. With diplomas in phytotherapy, aromatherapy, nutrition and dietetics, Joëlle applies her extensive knowledge of plants and their virtues to elaborate cosmetics, which include a rare concentration of the most efficient natural ingredients.” Read more here.

I was stoked to own skin care made in France, which is now available throughout the United States. DN-UNIK was kind enough to supply me with six of their wonderful products which included: Age-Defying Day Cream, Age-Defying Night Cream, Eye Contour Serum, Age-Defying Serum, Toning Lotion, and Moisturizing Mask.

DN-UNIK Age-Defying Day Cream Description:

“Natural hyaluronic acid, obtained from the fermentation of a mixture of algae and plants, is known for its moisturizing and age defying properties. Sea fennel extract rich in vitamin C, minerals and trace elements, improves skin radiance and tonicity. Menyanthes rich in oligo-elements, helps restore skin’s natural firmness, tone and brightness. Aloe Vera contains numerous vitamins and minerals and has moisturizing, soothing, and restorative properties. Witch hazel hydrosol is soothing and tightens pores.”

My Thoughts: I start my mornings by rinsing my face with water, followed by applying the Age-Defying Day Cream. It’s the perfect finish before applying my make-up. It’s light weight and absorbs quickly, my foundation glided on with ease and did not cling to dry patches. I am in love with the floral botanical aroma of the cream. When I first read the ingredient Parfum, I was a little concern. I emailed DN-UNIK and they were quick to respond. “It is very typical that French companies list parfum on their INCI label even though the scent is provided by essential oils. We carry the highest EcoCert and Cosmebio Organic certification available, which states that they do not allow any synthetic parfum and a bunch of other strict requirements. Every one of our labels also highlights the fact that there are no synthetic parfum used in the products.” What a sigh of relief because the smell is so refreshing and the perfect way to start my day.
