Brand Focus ~ Nyakio Beauty

*pr sample*



Nyakio Beauty, owned by  first generation American of Kenyan descent, Nyakio Grieco. Ever since she was  little girl she spent a lot of time traveling to Kenya to see her grandmother. While there, Nyakio would learn family beauty secrets, that  later would spark her interest in skin care.

Her 16 piece skin care collection launched at Ulta Beauty few months ago.  
It is priced form $22 to $49. The brand uses amazing hydrating ingredients like neroli, maracuja, sweet almond and marula oil. Most of her faboulus ingriedients can be found all over the globe, Kenya, India (tamanu), Egypt (chamomile), Mali (baobab), Peru (quinoa).



I really like how the inside of the packaging looks like! 

I have 4 products that I will share my opinion on :)



Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm ~  I really love the idea of double cleanse. For a quite some time I been using oils first and than I would follow up with my cleansing gel or balm. This balm to oil gently melts away makeup and dirt. it Smells wonderful too! Too be honest with this particular product i don't even need to follow up with any other cleansing products. It literally take it all off. But there is a con with this. If you take it off with water it get so greasy! like I need to use a paper towel to clean up all the,mess. Once that is done my skin does feel hydrated and clean. There is no makeup or greasy residue left.  I believe that people with dry skin would love this cleansing oil balm.  I am not a fan. I use L'Occitane  Cleansing oil and I think it works better in my opinion :) $28

Baobab Youth Infused Daily Defense Creme ~ Oh my goodness this creme smells so good! Moisturizer feels really lightweight and absorbs quickly leaving skin so soft and beautiful. My skin feels hydrated with out being greasy. I use it night time . for day time I reach for moisturizer with spf in it.  $35





Chamomile Soothing Sleep Mask ~ this ultra hydrating overnight facial mask instantly quenches skin with intense, lasting moisture and nourishment. This comforting cream works with skin's natrual nighttime recovery process to calm and rejuvenate tired looking skin with soothing blend of Chamomile, Calendula and Aloe Vera, With that said this is by far my favorite product.  Oh god how I love sleep masks! I do think they work wonders to the skin. And this one is no different/ Especially now, I been working a lot and myself and my skin feels tired. Once I apply this mask at least three times a week I can see a difference! My skin feels hydrated, calm and  well rested. I use it with Baobab daily moisturizer. I have to say once its on my face I feel more relax and I sleep better :) Definitely a must have in my routine . $35





Kenyan Coffee Lip Polish ~ did someone say coffee? Another great product by the brand. Lip scrubs and any kind of lip polishes are my jam. Well hello I been wearing matte liquid lipsticks and you know they are drying as hell. So a good scrub is a must have to get rid of the dry skin off my lips. I simply squeeze small amount and rub on my lips. I rinse with warm water. My lips feel really soft and plump :) After words I apply a lip balm for extra moisture. $24



Overall this brand is pricey I know , but at the same time is good. They use organic and natural ingredients and plus its cruelty free! No harmful ingredients what so ever. My personal favorites is the duo that I use night time Baobab creme and Chamomile Mask. 

You can find above products and more at Ulta near you :)
