Brand Focus: A'kin Skincare





A'kin is one of the most beautiful skincare brands in Priceline (IMHO). My first Rosehip oil was from A'kin, it smelt amazing and felt like liquid silk on my skin. My mum is also an avid A'kin user, we both find their products to be light weight, pleasantly scented and just darn beautiful.

Both A'kin and Al'chemy are a part of The Purist Company - all products are Australian made and owned with recyclable packaging; they are also vegan and cruelty free.

Ticks. all. my. boxes.  





A'kin White Tea and Cornflour Eye Day Gel
$29.95

I stumbled upon this eye gel by accident, it's light gel texture is perfect as a preventative measure for young adults. I use this during summer as my skin tend to appear more "plump" due to the heat. It's a beautiful gel that has a slight tightening effect upon application. I have been using and re-purchasing this eye gel for about a year, however, now that I have the occasional fine line business happening, I feel like I need something "heavier" .. so I've been using this eye gel with another eye cream on rotation.

If you are looking for your first eye gel, I'd recommend this!


A'kin Lavender and Rose Antioxidant Facial Night Crème 
$39.95

Another product I've been using for the longest time, repurchased for several years as this night Creme is absolutely beautiful! I always end up going back to this night cream as the subtle lavender and rose scent helps me sleep! It's feathery light but still provides adequate moisturisation during the warmer months. During winter, I might use a thicker serum under my night cream.




*A'kin Kaolin Clay & Lemongrass Express Purifying Facial Masque
$19.99

The texture of this masque is super creamy and easy to spread, the lemongrass scent is soothing and relaxing. I experienced very minor tingling sensation - a lot less than other clay masques I've used. My skin did feel refreshed and clean once the product is washed off. It's on par with the clay masque from SkinB5 (and I love that masque!)

  1. I have never actually tried any A'kin products but that face mask definitely sounds like something I want to try. I am also currently in the market for a new night cream so I might give that one a try as well x

  2. I've only tried the A'kin day time moisturiser, I love that it's cruelty free and vegan, but the pricepoint for that moisturiser was a little too much considering it only did a meh job. The antioxidant night cream looks good though!

  3. I tried stuff from A'kin years ago, but they were a bit hit & miss with me. I totally loved the rosewater mist they had, but they discontinued it. :o(

    1. aw no!! I had no idea they had a rosewater mist, that would've been a perfect substitute for jurlique's mist

  4. I don't use their face products but I love their body products. I used to love their toner like Shell, but of course it got discontinued :(
