I think I’ve made my love of probiotics pretty clear. I can not live without them and am always researching and finding new ways to balance and nurture my gut. I believe that when the bacteria in the gut is out of whack, it sets a chain reaction of other issues that arise in the body. I believe this same concept is true for the skin.
I receive quite a few emails from skin care companies asking me to review their products but you must know I say no to most of them. Usually because there isn’t enough uniqueness to share and because I’m promoting my own skin care line. However, I jumped at the chance to try out Nayelle and I’m so excited that I did! Almost a month ago I began using Nayelle Probiotic Skin Care products. I have experienced notable results and my skin feels well-nourished and happy!
The product line contains 4 products meant to be used together. There is a cleanser/exfoliator, a clay mask and a probiotic day cream and probitotic night cream. I have seen tremendous results using these products but first I want to share with you why they are so special.
Nayelle’s products contain four specific ingredients:Probiotic Goat Milk Kefir, Snow Mushroom, Natural Glacial Oceanic Clay and Fermented Sea Kelp. These ingredients are formulated together in a way to make them bio-actively available to your skin, which means they will penetrate your skin on a cellular level which makes them an effective skin care line. 100% of Nayelle’s product’s ingredients are active, beneficial ingredients. This is HIGHLY unique.
Natural Glacial Clay is a very rare clay found in British Columbia Canada. Glacial clay contains 60 rare earth minerals including almost all the rare earth elements that are found in the ocean. Created by deposits being pushed by glaciers into the ocean, it has a very high content of iron, calcium, magnesium and many other skin nourishing minerals. Glacial clay pulls impurities out of the skin, exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin making it one of the most effective ways to detox the skin.
Goat Milk Kefir is extremely nourishing and soothing to the skin. It contains essential fatty acids and has a unique pH similar to humans so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin. Goat Milk Kefir also contains skin minerals like selenium and is loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin A. As with other milks, goat milk contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and gently sloughs dead skin away. Goat Milk Kefir is also a powerful anti inflammatory.
Sea Kelp actually grows 2 feet a day in the ocean-translated in the skin-this means major cellular growth and renewal. Sea Kelp has a high amount of antioxidants and also contains proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, collagen and elastin.
Snow Mushroom has a super high amount of vitamin D and is actually 5x more effective in holding water then hyaluronic acid.

“Simply said – because it is the way nature works. Human bodies are intelligent and if you provide them with proper ingredients they can take care of themselves. The skin is our largest organ and the only one you can feed directly…so why would you feed it processed canned food, instead of raw organic “full of life” fresh food? Probiotics are complex, full spectrum food for your skin that cannot be imitated or substituted.
It’s the difference between eating processed canned, shelf food — versus — organic, live fresh food!”

My Personal Experience:
I always take a while to warm up to new skin care lines and Nayelle was no exception quite honestly. However, within 2 days of using the system I could tell my skin was well moisturized, smoother and more even toned. It is unseasonably DRY in my area and the cold weather has finally set in. My skin is starting to get painfully dry except for my face. When I first tried the day cream, I wasn’t so sure it was going to hydrate enough since my skin is used to using oils that don’t contain water. I must say, I have not experienced one bout of feeling dry since I started using Nayelle.
The Glacial Cleanser is amazing. It contains bits of bamboo for exfoliation. It removes dirt and makeup with great ease and leaves my skin feeling refreshed-I don’t feel tight at all after cleansing. It also smells fresh and thoroughly exfoliates. It also removes makeup with ease.
The Glacial Oceanic Clay Mask I have used about 3x. I love clay masks and this one is no exception. It dries very quickly compared to what I am used to. It also burns a bit. My skin feels nice and tingly afterwards and is a bit red from blood flow. I believe clay masks are very necessary and should be used on a regular basis. Not only does this mask draw out impurities, it also delivers nourishment to the skin.
The Probiotic Hydrating Day Cream is light and at first did not feel like it was going to be enough moisture. After a few minutes my skin feels well moisturized. It contains sea kelp and snow mushroom. It’s main purpose is to hydrate the skin cells and I would say it accomplishes that well. I will say, there is a very odd smell to this cream but it’s not overpowering and it does not smell once you apply it to the skin. It doesn’t bother me at all but it did strike me as odd when I first started using it. It works well under makeup.
The Probiotic Anti Aging Night Cream might be my favorite. This product is where most of the probiotic action comes into play. The night cream delivers bio-available nutrients to the skin’s cells once it has been cleansed and hydrated. I find this cream to be a bit thicker and feel well moisturized immediately upon applying it. It also has the same odd smell as the day cream but it is not an issue in the least.

Overall, my skin is smoother and firmer and my wrinkles are reduced. The most exciting result for me personally are my temples. I have had bumps on my temples since my 2nd daughter was born (5 years ago!!). I can’t figure out why and I’ve never been able to remedy it no matter what I eat or apply. In fact, they are very visible in photos I take of myself for makeup tutorials and I always have to air brush that area because it’s distracting. Now, my temples are smooth and bump free! My skin is very supple and feels very healthy.
I would highly recommend you check this skin care line out! In fact, the products are on sale right now so this post came just at the right time!! Also, when you buy the Cleanser, Day and Night Probiotic Cream, you get a free Clay Mask! Shop all Nayelle products HERE.
