Kokon in a few words: warm, silky, soft, sensual, enveloping, comforting, healing.
I was amazed at how well it lathered without containing any emulsifiers, thickeners or preservatives. Like Celestyna Moss rightfully says, the formulation is key and Nadine Ammari has achieved a real skincare prowess. The formula of Kokon is outstanding. It took the founder more than two years of research and development to come up with Kokon and the result was worth the wait. Just like nature takes its time, so does Nadine Namari when creating new products. This is sustainable, green beauty at its best.
A real treat for all skin types
Once you pour the product into the palms of your hands, it has this mellow liquid caramel texture which upon contact with water, becomes soluble and washes off like a dream. No sticky feeling at all (which blew me away seeing how caramel-like it initially feels), just velvety soft, clean, glowing skin. Kokon is an oil/cream hybrid: while it has more of a cream feel to it, it functions like an oil cleanser in the sense that it removes makeup too (with the exception of mascara or heavy foundation). Regardless of how I used Kokon (be it as a first or as a second cleanser), I experienced no issues at all, my skin remained in top condition. It did not aggravate any current breakouts, it even helped heal inflammations quicker because kept my skin balanced.
After a long day, coming home to cleansing your face with Kokon is a magical experience.
Every time, I felt the tension, grime and heat go away as I massaged it on my dry skin. I would feel a headache towards the evening and see a genuine relief once I had “kokoned” my skin. It is also a cleanser suitable for all types. Mature/dry skin will enjoy the softening and hydrating feel and can also use it as a restoring face mask whereas oily/combo skin can simply enjoy a nourishing cleanser that gets rid of all the dirt without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Skin will remain soft, calm, balanced and ultimately clear.
Luxury is simplicity, when a product feels, performs and delivers effortlessly, that is the epitome of refinement and luxury.
It is easily one of the most beautiful and indulging cleansers I’ve ever used. Just sublime. As soon as I ran used it up and moved on to a different product, I missed the luscious, silky smooth feeling of Kokon. The 100mL bottle will last you for a solid 2-3 months of daily use. The only minor ‘issue’ I had was that I couldn’t really tell when I was running out of it, so it is preferable to always have a backup cleanser. At the price of 61CHF (approx. 53 EUR for 100mL) it more a high-end product but sample sizes are also available on Namari’s website. Namari also has a local recycling program for their beautiful bottles and Swiss clients can send them and receive extra points for their future purchases in return. You can order directly from Namari or shop on So Natural Beauty, one of their stockists.
Kokon is a decadent skin treat that nourishes the skin and soothes the spirit. An intoxicating blend of spices and exotic oils that elevates the ‘mundane’ task of cleansing your face. I highly recommend giving this amazing Swiss brand a try. It is the embodiment of “green/clean” beauty in the sense that it is mindfully crafted with utmost care and intelligence, aiming to offer your skin a soothing and replenishing experience.
