Trialing Nuxe Cleansers
When I bought the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, I bought this set of deluxe sample sized cleansers too. I wanted to try this brand, and these travel sized bottles are great just for that purpose. Enough for me to have a good feel of how they perform, and not too big that I’d waste the whole bottle if I didn’t like it. I think it retailed for about RM50 – or thereabouts.
In this set, I get Gentle Exfoliating Gel, Clarifying Cream Mask, Cleansing Gel, Comforting Cleansing Milk and Micellar Cleansing Water. Oh wait, I’m pretty sure there’s a toner too, guess I left it out of the photo. Hahahaha! Blogging fail!! Anyway, these are all for sensitive skin, gentle enough to use on eyes. I have tried all of them, used up a couple, and the most important thing to note is, I never broke out from any of these.
I think the cleansers, milk and gel, perform really well on my skin. They are gentle on the skin and don’t leave skin feeling tight or dry. The Micellar Cleansing Water also does a great job at removing makeup including waterproof mascara. Naturally, it took me much longer to clean my face compared to cleansing oils, but I didn’t mind. The mask didn’t do much for me, and I didn’t like the exfoliating gel because the beads are larger than what I’m used to, and it doesn’t seem to exfoliate well. Maybe I’m used to my Clarisonic Plus, which I’m still using after 2 years.
While I really like the cleansers, I wish the scent isn’t that strong. The jasmine scent is quite strong here, and it did take me a while to adjust. I never got used to them though. I prefer if they smelled like my new favourite lip balm! Will I purchase any of these full sized? Erm, no. My skin likes them but my nose is protesting. Nose wins >_<
Do you use any of these? Have you tried Nuxe?
