What is 𝗡𝗼𝗻𝗶?
I've researched about this plant a year ago when I held a giveaway with a local product having this as the main ingredient.
The fruit of a tall flowering tree shrub, the Noni fruit or scientifically called as Morinda Citrifolia looks like a cross between the local atis and a small guyabano and is said to be common in the country, called as "apatot" or "bangkoro". I don't remember seeing this around personally though, let me know if you have!
🔬The fruit is said to be a rich source of:
▪︎ Vitamin C, A, flavonoids, potassium, linoleic and amino acids (essential fatty acids)
- improves skin tone and elasticity
- nourishes and helps improve wrinkles and lines associated with dry skin
- boosts the skin's natural process of repairing collagen
Now luckily I've won me this Í𝗨𝗡𝗜𝗞 𝗡𝗼𝗻𝗶 𝗟𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗢𝗶𝗹 𝗦𝗲𝗿𝘂𝗺 exactly a year ago when the ingredient started to trend in skincare and was just being launched by the brand. It wasn't a timed-review giveaway so I was very thankful to have more than sufficient time to use and experience this product.
🏁 Its targets are:
▪︎ making the skin glossy and bright
▪︎ deep moisturization
▪︎ keeping the skin smooth and elastic
▪︎ reduce fine lines and wrinkles
❔It's literally like a hybrid between a lightweight face oil and a thick serum. Texture-wise, it starts off as a bit viscous but melts into a liquid upon spreading. It leaves a soft sheen on the skin that takes more than a minute to absorb and dissipate completely, with no greasiness nor stickiness. It's also fragrance-free except for it's natural scent which is a very faint smell that reminds me of rice or wheat or oats.
