this is a new product, new as in, I recently found out during one of my trips to Singapore. A'kin is an Australian brand that care for the skin and against animal testing too.
Apparently, the brand have so many things to offer, not just skincare but hair care too, but it's ashamed that their website kept crashing down, it's not easy to get information like that.

The product seems really good, from the packaging, container, details that are written or drawn on the box. Like they are there to impressed, the ingredients are colored beautifully, brightens, smooths, and revitalizes the skin they say.
Everything is written in details on the box, I like it, they provide enough information for potential buyer and user here. Rosehip oil is one of the highlighted ingredients a few years back said it can heal scars, help the skin to regenerate better and many other wonders to hydrating and nourishing. They have tons of products with rosehip oils in Singapore and I guess in Australia too since Singaporean kinda loves products from down under. Miranda Kerr also said to be using the oils...hmm, me want :D
From brightening, smoothing, fading scars, moisturizing, firming, even out skin tone, to many others and the shea butter itself is well known too for being so good to dry skin. Shea butter is also one of the most famous ingredients known worldwide to the the key most important details in making the skin elastic and well protected from many different conditions linked to dryness. So this cream should be one powerful moisturizer for me. Or anyone with dry skin or problematic skin thanks to aging.
The texture of the cream is thick and rich yet on the skin they melt easily and made the skin feels so good. Like there's a calming thing going on, my dry skin are happy meeting with the cream and enjoy using it on daily basis.
What's appear to be heavy at first was becoming smooth and soft afterwards and giving my skin a subtle lovely glow of a perfectly moist skin away from dryness and the moist effect last almost the whole day, and that would be a good record for me.
Drink enough fluid, eat many fruits and veggies not always does the trick for my very dry skin, plus, I'm over 35 now and stays mostly indoor with air con. Going outside in Jakarta means pollution and very hot temperature nowadays. It's September alright but still no signs of actual rain, like a heavy rain fall for days that can make a differences in the air quality and significant to lowering the heat.
So using this cream, with brumisateur or perhaps another hydrating serum plus sun protection during the day or oil based serum during the night is suffice for me, it's what I need.
I love the texture, the result, the effects on my skin, the consistency and yes, the scent too, it is subtle yet comforting.
I've been using it for night and days now and keep enjoying the result. I don't feel any greasy nor oily skin, more like relaxed, pleasant and happy contented skin all day long. The product so far didn't cause any breakouts, black nor white heads, or any other unpleasant side effects, so I can safely say, so far so good (a few weeks of using).
I did see benefits using it (aside from moisturizing effect) but I kinda doubt about brightening, perhaps more to the evened out skin tone and less problems from aging. Fine lines seems to be more relaxed and perhaps made me appear younger by a bit, any younger I will take it as a compliment. But for better result, I may want to add rosehip essential oil for a higher chance of increasing the influence.
Do I recommend A'kin Rosehip & Shea Intensive Moisture Antioxidant Creme? For sure!
