Nuxe for the Face and Body

When Nuxe was officially launched in the Philippines last year, I had my skin analyzed and I was told the best product for me to use is the Nuxellence Detox, which is from their anti-aging care line.  It works best as a night serum to be applied before a night cream!

I have used this for more than a month before I started finishing my old serums (not because I don't like this product but because I dislike wasting product so I had to finish my 2nd bottle of Shiseido Ultimune). 

The texture of this serum is amazing!  Super lightweight and it gets absorbed into the skin almost no time so I can immediately follow up with my favorite night cream!  It doesn't hurt that it comes with a nice floral scent making it easier for me to doze off!

Then the next product I tried from them is the NUXE Lotion Tonique Douce or as simple as a Gentle Toning Lotion!  We all know gone in the past when toners are alcohol base and strips off our skin's natural oil!  With this one from NUXE, it hydrates my skin making it soft and smooth ready to accept the next skin care product to be applied on my face!  What I like about this product is that, it smells great, non-greasy and works even for sensitive skin --- because I have sensitive skin and so far, I did not suffer from any allergic reactions.

Just the start of the month of March, I finished up my 2nd bottle of Burt's Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser.  I was looking for another cleanser similar to my favorite Radiance Line so I picked up the Nuxe White Brightening Purifying Foam (Php1,150.00).

According to product description, this is a gentle cleanser is suitable for all skin types.  I personally feel this would work better on users who have normal and oily skin.  For you who have dry skin like I do, I felt the product could be too drying after every wash!  I have this need to follow up with a serum and moisturizer after every wash!  

On the up side, I can see my skin brighten after first week, but I had to give this up to my sister who is younger and has oilier skin than I do!  She loves this!

Just when I'm done with my Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily Defense Sunblock, I am so happy to try a new sun protector from Nuxe, still under the Nuxe White line.  The Nuxe White Daily UV Protector (Php1,850.00) is suitable for all skin types even for sensitive skin.  It helps protect our skin from the sun and pollution with SPF30 PA+++.

I like applying a thin layer of this all over my face before makeup and this is indeed lightweight, non-greasy and blends easily.  Thankfully, with just the right amount of SPF, I do not have any white cast even on flash photography. 

I enjoy how simple yet useful the packaging is!  I can tote this around anywhere I go!

Thankfully, Nuxe came up with their Body line!  I do not have any allergic reactions to their products so I"m looking forward to try their Body line.

NUXE Body-Contouring Oil For Infiltrated Cellulite
This is not meant to reduce "fat", the product comes with Botanical Oils (Organic Sesame Oil, Hazelnut Oil and Macadamia Oil) with the effectiveness of Cocoa Extract known to help improve skin's elasticity thus giving a look of "Firmness".  

Will definitely try this product on my arms and tummy and see how it'll go!
Nuxe Body Melting Firming Cream
As much as I love to use body creams at night, I like the fact that this cream is designed to leave skin more toned, firm and soft thus helping our thighs, stomach, bust and arms look firmer and younger if applied with extra massage!   

Okay, seriously, where were you Nuxe when I spent Php3,000 plus on a useless anti-cellulite cream via Home TV Shopping? :P

Nuxe Fondant Shower Gel
This is a unique soap-free gel that transforms into a fine and delicate foam to help cleanse the skin thoroughly without drying! I have used this for a week and my skin feels so smooth after every shower!  I wish this will come in bigger size because the product I'm almost done with this in less than a month!


Overall, I am very impressed with all the NUXE products I've tried and I wish you give this brand a try too! 

If you did, which particular Nuxe product is your favorite?  Any other must-trys?  I believe the Body Oil is a must!  I can't wait to use it but I may use it when my toddler is not as clingy as now!

All Nuxe products are available in Rustan's Shangri-la, Rustan's Makati, Rustan's Alabang, Kiss & Fly Terminal 3, Robinsons Magnolia Kiosk and Beauty Bar stores nationwide.
