Trying out Nars Skin

March 16 2017

Apart from the fact that the all white and minimal packaging spoke to my soul, I was quite interested to try out NARS Skincare. Being a fan of their makeup, I wanted to know if the skincare matched up. I enlisted my mum, who was also very excited to try out the products, and she and I have similar thoughts..


The Gentle Cream Cleanser, 125ml, £21 {UK Link | INT Link}

As soon as this goes on the skin it feels cool, smooth and soft. I like it cleanses very well but gently! I can use this everyday. It even removes makeup very well on the first wash.

Price: 4.5/5

Packaging: 5/5

Repurchase: Yes

Overall: 4.5/5


The Double Refining Exfoliator, 75ml, £26 {UK Link | INT Link}

The beads are not too harsh on the skin, and the product glides on very easily. For a deeper exfoliation, I left it on for 3 minutes then rinsed off.

Price: 3.5/5

Packaging: 5/5

Repurchase: Yes

Overall: 4/5


The Aqua Gel Luminous Mask, 75ml, £29 {UK Link | INT Link}

I’ve always gone for masks that I could “paint” on, leaving behind a chalky and hard finish to dote on as I did other things and later wash off, but this is a refreshing change, as it is a gel that applies very much like a moisturiser. You instantly forget it’s on, and luckily it’s one of those you can leave on for a long time, over night even. I like that it rinses easily with warm water, and makes my skin feel suppler and look plumper.

Price: 3.5/5

Packaging: 5/5

Repurchase: Yes

Overall: 4/5


The Total Replenishing Eye Cream, 15ml, £38 {UK Link | INT Link}

This adds the moisture needed for the eye area. The formula is thick, but glides on very smoothly and doesn’t weigh down the delicate skin around the eyes.

Price: 3/5

Packaging: 5/5

Repurchase: Yes

Overall: 4/5


The Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturiser, 50ml, £41 {UK Link | INT Link}

A must have in my opinion, especially as it feels so cool and fresh on my skin. I also love how it leaves it looking moisturised but not excessively oily!

Price: 3.5/5

Packaging: 5/5

Repurchase: Yes



I hope you find this post helpful! X

    I am mostly drawn to the exfoliator, but do you think it can be used every other day? Looks like its not that harsh..

    also, do you think NARSskin necessarily gives amazing results, seeing the price?

    Love the packaging and really enjoyed the post. Thinking to try out

      Yes it can! It really is soft enough for every other day! And to answer about the price, I think it’s a great alternative to the much higher end like La Mer, La Prairie etc, as you get the quality without the huge price tag! My pleasure, thanks for stopping by! xxx

    I’m so happy to be among the firsts people to comment on this. I’m not really big on skin care but I want to. Pls Miss Shirley can you do a post or video about how you started out with skincare products, which affordable ones are most productive. Thank you. I am obsessed by you BTW.

    Wow the packaging just draws one in. Thank you for this. I’ve been trying to find an eye cream for a while now, my eyes are so warm and heavy after a day at work – does it feel cool on the skin?
    Will recommend the mask to my mum – she doesn’t like anything heavy on her face lol. What are you using for night time? Would be great to know. Stay fab x Metiya

    This is exactly the post I’ve been looking for! Like you the NARS white + minimal packaging spoke to my soul. I just knew I had to try it, so your post is so helpful to know which products will fit well into my current skincare routine.

    Hi I wanted to ask if you will be doing a blog/vlog on how you achieve a minimalist, especially a white background in majority of your post. I have tried different apps & digs I googogled on line but since I’m so new to editing I’m having a though time so far . I am building my website for hair sale soon and what to do something’s myself.
