Nourish relax hydrating peptide serum





Serums are one part of my facial routine that tend to get forgotten about often, not because I don't think they are important or because I don't enjoy using them but generally because I am so taken with my beloved facial oils that not many other products tend to get a look in. I have sensitive skin which is very reactive and prone to red patches so this product really appealed to me. 

Nourish natural skincare was founded by Pauline Hili who is a scientist with over 20 years experience in the skincare industry, the brand is natural and has a high percentage of organic ingredients in every formulation. Nourish caters for all skincare types with four different skincare ranges and a variety of body products.  

This is a water based serum with peptides which are good for anti-ageing, lavender which is soothing and hyaluronic acid for deep hydration. I have been using this for a couple of months now and I do find it lives up to it's soothing claims, the directions say to use this after moisturising but personally I like to pop this on straight after toner, and let it sooth the skin before applying other products on top. 

This is very cooling on the skin, just one pump is enough for the whole face and neck. This works really well at reducing redness from environmental factors such as the heat of the shower or as reaction to stress. It has a gentle lavender scent nothing too overpowering and does add hydration to the skin, I find I get far less dry patches since using it. It compares favourably to the REN hydra calm serum that I reviewed previously, it matches REN in terms of performance but the price point is much lower, making it much better value for money. 

I like the ingredients used and the philosophy of the brand, I feel like you get high end results without the high end price tag, so it is definitely a brand to look at if you are after quality organic skincare on a budget. Nourish carries the blue butterfly symbol of positive luxury which means that it is a responsible manufacturer. 

The website has all ingredients listed clearly and organic ingredients are marked with an * as well as percentage of organic ingredients being listed on each product, these are all things I look for when a product is not certified so it ticks all the boxes for me. The packaging is sturdy, the glass bottle comes with a pump applicator which is very practical. At £16.95 this is a bit of a bargain and I will definitely explore more from Nourish in the future. You can find the brand on Twitter and Facebook.
