As Reviewed by Dee's Mam...
Mammy’s been madly busy lately. Too much work, the bleak midwinter, and a distinct lack of entertainment have made my mid aged skin a bit droopy. But then Dee asked me to try this new Nuxe youth and radiance fluid, and all of a sudden, everything started to look better.
“You look fabulous,” a colleague said to me a few weeks later. “Thanks,” I said, “it’s the Nuxe Jeunnesse effect”. Bit of a conversation stopper, that.
So what’s in this magic potion that makes it worthy of your attention? Nuxe is a brand that I haven’t tried before. The package states that this youth and radiance revealing fluid has 10 new patents and natural flower extracts. After using it for the last four weeks, I'm really rather taken with the whole thing.
The product comes in a pump bottle, with a nifty top to make sure you only pump a small amount each time. So, no waste, no mess, no fuss. It goes on beautifully, with a feeling of luxury, and is absorbed right away. The recommended usage is two pumps, but I found I needed at least three, because of my very dry skin. Either way, it’s pretty cost effective. It suits all skin types, though I would prefer a formula especially for dry skin. I used it on its own for day wear, and at night I added a light covering of my usual night cream, as recommended in the instructions. Or, as we like to say in Ireland, to be sure, to be sure.
Mammy’s pretty eco-conscious (well, light green anyway), and doesn't like wasteful or over-elaborate packaging. The Nuxe packaging is simple and very eco-friendly. The only drawbacks are that the print is tiny (SuperMammy doesn’t see too clearly), and the pack only gives a brief explanation of the product benefits and how to use it.
Will I be using this again? Definitely! It’s proved itself at the most challenging time of year, reinvigorated my skin, and even has me looking forward to January cos there’s still loads left in the bottle. A big yes from Mammy, and a big bonjour to Jeunesse!
...Thanks Mam. If you like the sound of this stuff (it really is a lovely product), it'll be available from February for €49 in Arnotts and selected pharmacies. Can't wait until then? Enter our giveaway! The winner will be announced on the 3rd. Best of luck ladies!
