Pukka Nourishing Brightener

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 19 - 2012

Let’s get this straight… Pukka Nourishing Brightener smells like it needs to go in a curry. It looks like it needs to go in a curry and if I sneeze whilst standing too closely to it, chances are, it will end up in a curry. It’s aromatic in the extreme, horrendously messy to work with, and an eternally bemusing thing to put on your face.

That said, it’s bloody brilliant.

I don’t think I’ve actually ever used anything in 3/4 years of beauty blogging that’s had such an instant effect on my skin.  Long-lasting effects?  Well, I don’t know about that but in terms of the skincare miracle that you’d want to apply before a big night out for a glowing complexion?  Well, I think I might have found mine.

I don’t even know what it actually is… Pukka say that it’s got Amla and Gotu Kola in it.  Say what?

I mean, how can this little pot (and you don’t get an awful lot for your money) of… of… what looks like the scrapings off your burnt toast (sorry Pukka) coax my parched skin into such a glow?  It’s like a post-facial glow but without all the steaming, blackhead extraction (the blackheads are still there unfortunately), and skin pummeling.

Simply mix a little bit into your usual cleanser (I use a creamy one like A-Derma Sensifluid Cleansing Lotion), rub it in a bit (technical term) and then rinse off with a warm flannel.  HELL-O GLO!

Pukka Nourishing Brightener is priced at £13.00 for 15g and available online from PukkaHerbs.com – it’s probably awful in a curry.

    Wow…. sounds good. But I’d be pretty bummed if it didn’t get my skin glowing ‘coz Amla is Indian gooseberry (all that lovely vitamin C!!)… here in India, we get long lectures from our moms and grandmas about the wonderful things it can do for our skin and hair 🙂

    Not very sure of how I can translate Gotu Kola for you, but it is very widely used in Ayurveda… it’s supposed to be a very effective treatment for skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis.

    Looks like you’ve got a ‘pukka’ winner on your hands, Charlotte!

    I’ve been a silent reader for more than a year…this is my first comment on your blog…absolutely love Lipglossiping!!

    • Oh Zahra, thank you SO much for the explanation! My skin seems to react so well to anything vitamin-c related so now I’m not really surprised! Actually, considering your explanations for both ingredients, they do sound like they were made for my skintype, hoorah! Thank you for your kindness too xx
