So here we are, first blogpost since February I see. Kind of a lot of things happened, like maybe.. the Twinterior webshop! Oh my god, we are so thrilled to be able to share this with you all. It has been an intense few months preparing it for launch, but we are finally here and now we feel that it is time to introduce you to the brands we have in store for you.. or well in webshop shop for you ?
To kick this thing of we like to start with our precious Bathroom/Skincare brand. I actually stumbled on this brand through Pinterest when I was digging for product photography inspiration. I had saved some of their photo’s in the past, and suddenly got curious. Nuori. I visited their web page, read their mission statement and was sold from that point on.
Nouri means ”young” in Finnish. It directly refers to the fact that the products of Nuori are young. What I mean with that? Well.. everything ages, and so do ingredients. Not only in your food, but also in skincare. As in food, you need to more additives to keep the product fresh. And now that is exactly what Nuori does not do. Nuori stands for fresh skincare with natural ingredients. A new batch of products is blended every 12 weeks (or three months) — and no product stays on the shelf for more than 12 weeks at a time by using to dates on each bottle: a start-using-by and an expiration date. The reason for this is that over time active ingredients, such as vitamins A, C and E, breakdown. By blending new batches every 12 months Nuori’s products are are 100% efficacy, and as I mentioned before with 100% natural ingredients (find a list of their ingredients here).without having to use any synthetic preservatives. Their products are free from parabens, synthetic colour, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, petrolatum, PEGs, sulfates, MEA, DEA, TEA, polypropylene glycol, phthalates, and silicones.
Besides the ingredients, the other way for Nuori to guarantee the best quality of their product is their packaging. And boy does it look amazing! All their cleansers, body balms, and eye creams all come with airless pumps, which help to prevent molecule oxidization. All of the packaging minimises exposure to air, light, and bacteria, before and during use, and they all have this amazing minimal, Scandi look.
To us it’s a simple, yet effective concept, and we are very proud to be a retailer of Nuori.
Finally we will leave you with these words from Nuori’s founder Jami Bonnén:
“Fresh skin care makes sense to me the same way fresh food does — it’s more nourishing and has less additives.”
Just think about it.
The Nuori line consists of both skin-care and body products, and Twinterior has four different products for you in line. We tried them all ourselves, so for reviews do read on!
REVITALIZING & SMOOTHING
FRUIT ENZYME COMPLEX
This is a lovely, creamy cleanser that actually foams, which is always fun. It removes dirt and make-up without really affecting the natural oils of your skin.
Pomegranate enzyme and radish root extract gently and effectively remove impurities and slough away dead skin cells. Oat kernel extract and natural betaine offer powerful antioxidant protection and combat redness and irritation. Botanical glycerin helps maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance, leaving it smooth, supple and refreshed.
We tried all the products ourselves and I personally really like the light, foamy feel of this cleanser. Afterwards it really leaves the skin clean, to be able to put a nice facial cream or mask on, without feeling dry and tight.
INSTANT / OVERNIGHT
This one is Kim’s personal favorite really. Genetically we have quite an oily skin, and we have found a lot of creams or masks to make our skin feel even more oily rather than hydrated. However, Nuori’s moisturizing mask feels very effective but light on the skin. it really calms down irritated or distressed areas, giving a really smooth effect.
Grape and Damask rose waters combined with natural hyaluronic acid effectively restore moisture levels, while botanical squalene and betaine strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Anti-inflammatory chamomile extract reduces irritation and restore suppleness. Vitamin B3 revives skin tone, improves elasticity, and prevents moisture loss.
Kim uses it when she feels she needs to. A day in the sun, a stressful day work, or just because it is so perfect after using the Nuori Cleansing foam to give the skin an extra boost. Really highly recommended!
WHITE TEA BLOSSOM
This Enriched Hand Lotion is a product that you really can’t miss on a daily basis. Each time you wash your hand your hands need a moisturizing boost, and this lotion is just perfect for that. Oh and I forgot. Okay maybe not. The smell is A-MA-ZING!
This natural formula nourishes skin with shea butter, olive squalane, grape seed oil and sweet almond oil. Moreover, it’s enriched with white tea extract and vitamin E for antioxidant protection.
The first time we tried this one we were quite shocked, in a positive way. We used it like any other body balm we had before, and we were noticing that it is nice to massage on the skin, and absorbs perfectly, but the shocking part actually came after that. You know that feeling that after you have hydrated your body with some balm, you go lie in to bed and you feel all sticky – for me especially the legs- ? Well with this one you don’t! It gives such a nice, mat, hydrated feeling yo your skin, and it lasts for days after.
It consist of Nuori’s signature blend of avocado oil, shea butter and olive oil-derived glycerin nourishes and moisturizes the epidermis, thus restoring skin smoothness and elasticity. Grape seed oil and vitamin E offer antioxidant protection.
