bitebeauty CHRIS PERFORMANCE FACE SERUM Winner of the Editor’s Choice Awards - The Beauty Shortlist 2020 and the Commended Award 2021, this Performance Face Serum is, simply put, amazing. It has everything you need to rejuvenate and even out the skin texture. Its formula is packed with active, natural ingredients including Hibiscus Extract to smooth out facial lines, especially around the mouth and the frowning lines. Hyaluronic Acid helps elasticity, hydration and plumping of the skin, while Pomegra- nate reverses skin damages caused by sun exposure. Rosemary Leaf Extract is used for protection and a collagen booster, and Green Tea destress tired dull skin. The gel-like texture is light, smooth but rich, and penetrates the skin instantly. The skin feels and looks smoother, softer, younger and well hydrated. Applied day and evening, after cleansing, my skin felt tightened and lifted, fresh and smooth. I loved how the mouth lines appeared less marked with just a few usages. Its earthly scent of natural oils is also very calming and soothing. This is the perfect gift for anyone wishing for a fantastic, excellent quality serum. Personally, this is the one I would happily keep for myself. REVITALISING FACE OIL The winner of many awards, this amazing Face Oil revitalises stressed and tired skin. It’s the perfect companion to the Face Serum with a fantastic formula of botanical oils with great benefits to the skin. Peach Kernels is rich in anti-ageing Omega Oil, Baobab Oil, antioxidant and regenerating properties. Argan Oil helps to soothe inflammation and Olive Oil smooths and improves elasticity. The Face Oil can be used on its own, or with the Face Serum or any moistu- riser, and the effects will be instantly beautiful, healthy, radiant skin, that looks younger. The texture has a lovely, rich thickness to it, which I appreciate in any oil, especially when it is so easily absorbed, without a greasy feeling. The scent is delicate and fresh; I particularly love the uplifting vibes of Rosemary. It’s perfectly wearable under make-up, which adds a lovely healthy glow to it. This winner for me is a must-have not just for Christmas, but for every day, all year-round. LIP TREATMENT BALM This is a fantastic all-around, anti-ageing lip treatment to plump, nourish, soften and hydrate the delicate lips area. The balm is super soft and glides on easily, with an immediate sense of relief from dryness. The active ingredients of Shea Butter, Mint, Argan and Baobab Oils, add nutrients and plumpness to the lips. Upon appli- cation, the lips feel fuller and immensely soft and revived. I love this balm texture because it’s so beautifully rich, that a little bit goes a long way, and I can see this jar happily lasting a long time. No wonder it won the Best Lip Balm 2018 and 2020 awards. www.nakinskincare.com Beauty Editor Giovanna Zac explores some of the excellent Christmas gifts to share with loved ones during the festive season.
