Being of African heritage, I’m always inspired by African-owned businesses, which are thriving globally. I was delighted to be given this opportunity to try out the latest skin care products emerging from West Africa. ORIKI is a luxury skincare brand that fuses natural ingredients and scientific research to create extraordinary personal skin and hair care products. Oriki is committed to sourcing the best quality and finest selection of products which compliments the “bold allure of the ORIKI woman and man.” Joycee Awojoodu – the founder created the brand in 2014 after she relocated to Nigeria and noticed an opportunity in harnessing the efficacy and potency of the abundant natural resources home to the continent of Africa.

The ORIKI products range includes serums, body scrubs, moisturisers, cleansers, body wash, eye treatments, and an ORIKI for Men product line. These products can be used on all skin types. All products are sold in their flagship store and Spa which are located in Lagos, Nigeria and online via their official website where items are priced in Naira, US Dollars and GB Pound Sterling currencies. The brand offers shipping world wide.
The packing of these products immediately caught my attention, they all come in decent sized, beautifully labelled jars and bottles. Each product lists the main ingredients and instructions for use. I used these products twice a day over a period of six days in order to give an honest review.
Oatmeal Cream Purifying Cleanser
The cleanser has a beautiful fragrance; which is not over powering. It contains sunflower and organic jojoba oils which gives it a rich texture and enhances hydration formulated for dry to normal skin types. It left my skin moisturised, without leaving an oily residue. I washed off the cleanser with warm water and pat- dried my skin. After a couple of minutes, I sprayed the Vitamin C Anti-oxidant Toner, which contains organic chamomile, helichrysum and sandalwood and gives it a therapeutic scent. I was surprised that there was no makeup residue on the cotton pads – which I normally get after using my regular cleanser! I then applied the moisturiser.
The Clarifying Anti- Blemish Treatment would be used just before the toner. This wonder product fights blackheads while minimising oil and redness with this sebum regulating spot treatment. It’s non-irritating and suitable for all skin types. This has a fragrant scent and the texture is silky.
Vitamin C Anti-oxidant Toner
ORIKI believe that harnessing natural plants and oils in a resource rich land is the key to the perfect products and have thus taken the philosophy and bottled it through the Oriki product line. What intrigues me about ORIKI products is that they do not apply the one size fits all approach with their skincare. They have developed a comprehensive range of 32 botanically based products which cater for various skin concerns. For example, they have specific introductory sets for mature skin, acne treatements, sensitive skin and hyperpigmented/discoloured skin. Also, ORIKI products are free of unnecessary additives, parabens and sulfates.
The Elluminator Moisturiser
This moisture cream is ideal for anyone who desires a clear, radiant complexion. It contains bearberry derived alpha-arbutin, vitamin C and licorice root; which all balance skin and restores clarity in environmentally stressed or pigmented skin. It has a soft fruity aroma and rich texture which absorbs easily into the skin.
My package also included the ORIKI Men’s Cidarewood Moisturiser with Mint Leaf Extract, which my husband was delighted to try out and he loved the product. His face definitely looks more hydrated than usual. This moisturiser is ideal for dry to normal skin. It is infused with nourishing natural oils, and vitamins which combat dryness and minimize the signs of ageing while improving tone and overall skin complexion. It has a rich texture, but again does not leave an oily residue. Apart from this moisturiser, the ORIKI for MEN line includes men’s shaving and daily luxury skincare products . This would be a well appreciated gift by the special man in your life.
With the combination of rich, natural skin perfecting nutrients utilised in the ORIKI products, one is optimistic to maintain a healthy and youthful appearance for a long time. For me it is always far more important to have fresh, clear healthy skin than rely on the flawless blemish-free edited images on phone apps that can be a far cry from reality. But it doesn’t need to be. These products will give you that healthy vibrant face.
