Nuance Skincare, Wild Lime Exfoliating Facial Gel, Smooth and Firm Elixir, and Anti-aging Super Eye Treatment

Standard

Vitamins A and E, Sea Buckthorn Extract, Wild Lime Fruit Blend and fruit acids sound good to me.

Thoughts:

Nuance Wild Lime Exfoliating Gel

As I’m always switching up my skin care to keep it fresh, and this was only $8 (actually it was $4 if you count that I got it with the makeup remover on a buy one, get one 50% off day!), I think it was a great buy. The fruit acids definitely have some exfoliating power, but not enough. So I use it as my daily face wash, which seems to keep my skin bright. I like it.

Nuance Smooth & Firm Elixir

Probably wouldn’t purchase again, but only because my Tarte Tinted Moisturizer is already my skin care. This was kind of silly to buy. I might return it. Great ingredients though, Sodium Hyaluronate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ecinacea, zinc, cucumber extract, panax ginseng, safflower, Agave Tequilana Leaf Extract, Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract, Vitamin A and C and E – good stuff. My Tarte TM already has sodium hyaluronate and vitamins A, C and E. So this was a bit redundant for me. Feels and smells really nice when you put it on – sort of tightens and wakens your skin.

Nuance Anti-aging Super Eye Treatment

Softens and brightens the eye area immediately. Moistens to soften the fine lines. Tightens a bit which is good. Hard for me to compare eye products, but I think for $20 this is not a bad one to try at all. And I got it also on a buy one get 1 50% off day, so it was $15. It feels really good. I like it better than the Smooth and Firm Elixir. I’m trying to figure out if I like it better than my Mychelle Fabulous Eye Cream. I think maybe I like it a little better, as it contains passiflora extract which has vitamin C, and Mimosa and Lentil and Apple extract, which are probably cool, haha! My only question would be about the concentration of these ingredients. But for $15 it was worth it.

I think I would know more how I feel about these once I try something else for awhile. Sorry for the ambiguous review.
