Nourishing Nuxe: First Impressions

DSCF1199

I have never tried any products from the brand Nuxe, until now. Why I decided to dip my toes into a new brand of products was the fact I have very very dry chapped lips at the moment. I got sucked in by the generously sized free gift you received when buying two Nuxe products on feelunqiue.com so I ended up buying an extra unplanned product, oops. I haven’t used these products a lot yet but I thought I’d talk about my first impressions of these products and what I think of them so far.

I had heard a lot of good things about the NUXE Reve de Miel Baume Levres Ultra-Nourrissant Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm although the price of this does means splurging a little, as it is £9.50 and that’s the most I have ever paid for a lip balm! I am glad I did, my chapped lips are clearing up and when you put this balm on your lips it just feels like its doing something and really healing your lips! Its a very thick consistency so its not glossy in texture or too look at on your lips. A lot of lip balms to me feel like I have just applied a lip gloss, which is all well and good if your lips need a little moisture, but when you have chapped dry lips it doesn’t really hit the spot. The smell of this lip balm is also rather nice, its very refreshing with a lemony citrus scent to it. Its not sickly and over powering, you just get a hint of it as you apply it to your lips. This is a good lip balm to apply at night to wake up with nourished lips as It is quite thick. Because my lips have been particularly dry I have been applying mine at both ends of the day as apart my morning and evening skin care routine for lovely soft lips.

The second Nuxe product I caved in and bought was the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse OR Multi-Usage Dry Oil – Golden Shimmer. I’m pretty sure I had heard this product mentioned before, but It wasn’t something I used to take  much notice of. For a while I was completely against using any oils on my hair or body for the fear it would weigh my hair down and make my hair and body greasy. I recently got a sample of an hair oil which has nearly run out and I really enjoyed applying a small amount to the ends of my hair. It didn’t weight my hair down or make it greasy like I thought. Firstly this product looks incredible in the bottle thanks to the tiny gold particles in this oil, pictures just don’t do it justice. I was sold when I saw this product was not only for the hair but also for your face and body! Its a dry oil which means its not as greasy and slippery like a regular oil.I thought this product would be gorgeous in the summer applied to bare legs, arms or the décolletage area. I also think it will make you hair appear more shiny when the light reflects of the glitter particles, whether it will do that or not I don’t know. In summer our body’s need moisturising just as much as during the winter. The reasons for this are: the damaging effects sun can have on our skin. The drying effects of salty sea water and partaking in lots of shaving to wear shorts, dresses and bikinis. Also just so our skin looks and feels nice. Not only that the gold flecks in the oil will leave your skin with hint of golden shimmer in the sun, and the great thing is its not to noticeable so you don’t look like a walking glitter ball.

My free gift was a NUXE Spa Le Parfum d’Ambiance 75ml, I’m not sure if you can buy this product by itself as I could only find the free gift link. I am always spritzing perfume around my room and on my bed, and its such a waste. I don’t  know if its a body mist or what but I have been using this around my room and it smells lovely. Its exactly like something you’d smell in a spa, clean and fresh with a hint of sweetness. I have been enjoying this a lot and its a lovely spring/summer scent. Its only available whilst stocks last so you better be quick!

Let me know if you’ve tried and of these products and what you thought of them in the comments.
