My skin has always been a sensitive subject, for I’ve suffered from mild to severe acne and always had some redness due to the weather, temperatures and quality of the air I was living in. Those that learnt how not to regard nor give importance to their daily imperfections, spots and reddish skin will understand – it is tough sometimes. Especially in a society that wants us to embody some kind of epitomised figure of perfection, that’s almost giving more legitimacy to the flawless ones, infusing our daily interactions with expectations. With a beautician mother, I swear we’ve tried almost everything and as frustrating as it can be, I guess time is our best friend and “waiting” is a required part of the process. But it does not mean we are left powerless…cause I’ve never felt more empowered than when using Namari Skin’s products!

Thanks to my friends at @ecolabo (check out their Instagram and website – a treasure when it comes to sustainable and eco-friendly living) I’ve discovered the following brand: Namari Skin. It is not your simple organic, sustainable, Swiss made and natural beauty brand – it offers a genuine cosmic experience with scents and perfumes you’d want to bathe in, proposing morning and evening rituals while pushing you to create your own and bringing healthy and sustainable beauty to a brand new level. This olfactory experience is brought to its ultimate best by the minimalist and elegant black packaging, marked with her emblematic feather, that I absolutely love.

Those products have been life changers when it came to the quality and look of my skin. I feel like I can finally – slowly but finally – fight those acne bacterias I still have within my skin cells with quality products whose scents are just out of this world. I’ve never ever felt that for other products before and am so glad to have them on my bathroom shelves. And so many of my students got seduced too…

Skin care which is not just about correcting flaws without regard for losses, but is part of the greater good.

Nadine Ammari, the founder, creator and fabulously talented soul behind Namari Skin, says it herself: “Skin care which is not just about correcting flaws without regard for losses, but is part of the greater good. Skin care that takes place in the constructive exchange with human, animal and nature and which interacts with body and spirit” (taken from namariskin.com). Her brand celebrates your skin in its purest form, making self-care a sensual and loving holistic experience.

Those traits highlighted here are just manifestations of resistance in our lives – ways to protect ourselves from life instead of trusting the Universe, its love and protection.

They not only offer an online shop but also skin consultations, a real SPA experience in Zürich as well as a cosmetic and overall wellness shop Qosms of Namari (qosms.com). Here’s a quick overview of the products I am using daily and why I absolutely love them (+ some of the ingredients for you to see how natural they are!).

Scents that will bring you on a sensory journey across a million valleys, mountains and oceans.

- SORBET -

Nadine says it’s a “poem in a jar”, well no doubt that if it could talk, it would most certainly refers to itself as the QUEEN! This delicately smooth pale pink butter melts into your palm to protect, sooth and nourish your skin in depths while providing an exotic aromatic experience. Want a glowing and healthy complexion?! Look no further! I am using it daily and my skin’s never liked anything more before.

- TAU -

This is my personal favourite and the one that pushed me into Namari Skin’s universe. “Like a meadow dew on a dawning day, its concentrated plant extracts and aromatic herbal oils infuse the cells with protecting antioxidants and create the experience of a blossoming spring garden”. I don’t think I need to add anything else to this, except that I am using day and night, every day, to seal in hydration, fix make-up or a refreshing pick me up!

- ELIXIER -

A liquid gold serum whose smell will bring you on a sensory journey across a million valleys, mountains and oceans, containing ingredients like turmeric vanilla up to prickly pear seed oil. “A beauty gem for a radiant and silky smooth complexion” and the most perfect oil to sooth a skin in winter, bring it warmth and provide it with vital nutrients. I always massage my students’ faces with it at the end of our classes and they all ADORE it.

- STAUB -

A magical power as they say, which is a mix of Moroccan Rhassoul clay, ground hibiscus blossoms, genuine silver and micro-algae. It boosts circulation and eliminate impurities only to rejuvenate our skin. A gentle resurfacing and detoxification of the skin that takes a vital place in my Sunday Skincare Ritual (based on what’s recommended on Namari’s website).

- JUWEL -

Her last creation, an essence of perfume that literally is a cosmic experience on its own. A fresh crystal roll infusing my skin with aromatic beauty every night is the most perfect start of a night full of mystical dreams. AND IT STAYS ON YOUR SKIN FOREVER! In love with it, I highly recommend it for all you delicate souls out there…
