I love the scent of this. It’s so sweet and soothing. It’s good at cleansing and removing makeup. I like this. I am considering buying the full size cause of the scent. But I don’t think this is as good as any other cleanser. Especially Nuxe is a pricier brand, so for the price, I don’t think this will be worth it.
I just feel so unglam today. This is the first time I use a mask from a sachet that I feel gave too little. I barely have enough to cover my whole face let alone my neck. Plus it told you to apply liberally on to the face and neck. It’s a 4ml pack too.
The nice thing about this is that it has a subtle rose scent. Once it dries, it sort of become clear. Using warm water to rinse off, it feels like soap. The texture is like rubbing on soap. It doesn’t do much on my face though. I mean sure it does cleanse my face. At least it looks clear but nothing sort of special about this. So not impressed about this.
Tried more Nuxe Moisturisers. I do like Nuxe as a brand. And I feel their skincare is really good for all skin type, despite what it says for normal/oily/dry skin. It’s just good for anyone who sleeps in air condition room or in cold country.
Moisturising Deep Wrinkle Emulsion is quite hydrating and yet doesn’t leave my skin oily. Really nice sample to have around.
Brightening Moisturising Emulsion is a good moisturiser. It helps to hydrate dry skin without leaving it greasy. It is gentle on the skin. I think this is their whitening range, but I see no difference to my skin tone.
Ultra Comfortable Face Cream is stated for day, so I guess it has SPF. I totally did not pay attention to the details except to just use it on the day. I am a bit scared of this as it stated for dry skin. In the end, it’s alright but not my favourite. And it’s a bit whiter on the skin then the rest, so had to make sure everything is really blended into the skin.
This is basically the famous Nuxe lip balm. It’s rated one of the best lip balm in the beauty industry. They say that it’s matte. But to me still has a little shine. The formula is very thick and gooey. But I feel that it’s really good when you have chapped lips. Cause it is very thick, it will really coat the lips. In the morning there will be leftover white residue if it doesn’t get absorbed by the lips. It is just a very unique texture.
The stuck form is not as good. It’s a bit hard but it will go on like oil once warm up on the lips. It is ok, but more of a thin coat over. It smells sweet but not floral or candy like. I like that it is very solid so it doesn’t melt easily and that no matter how hard you push onto the lips, the stick doesn’t break.
It is a nice toner. But just a toner, nothing so special about it. But it doesn’t leave me oily so that’s good. It just those toner that you know is good but not something that I will personally go out my way to find. But if I really no toner, (impossible) I will consider buying this.
I love Nuxe soothing moisturizer, it’s just so soothing for a better lack of word.
So here I have 2 more moisturizers, a toner and a serum.
I’ve tried the normal 24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Cream, it was good. I like it. Especially for night time. Here I have one that is enrich and one that is light.
24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Rich Cream for de-thirsts and replenishes. It is super thick, doesn’t blend as easily as the normal one. I can feel that is quite oily but not extreme. After awhile, it just appear dewy on the face. Surprisingly, it absorbed into the skin eventually.
24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Emulsion for de-thirsts and matifies. It is watery but still quite hard to blend into the skin. It appears the less oily on the skin, but still it is not mattifying.
Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid is a serum. This is one that has a different scent than the rest. I guess cause the packaging is different too. I thought this is a toner, end up it is not a liquid. It is still thinner than the rest. It sinks into the skin beautifully. I quite like it. It feels quite oily at first, but eventually it “dry” out.
24hr Soothing and Moisturizing Concentrate is the serum for 24hr series. It is so much lighter than the moisturizer. Easier to blend in too. Sinks into the skin very fast leaving the skin super dehydrated. Also, it doesn’t make my face looks oily. I like it.
Will repurchase? Only the 24hr concentrate. But the rest I would love to have samples/travel size for traveling.
◊ Made my whole hand glittery. ◊ Good for party night. ◊ Smells good. Like perfume but more natural. More spa like. More oil base type. Hard to explain but it smell rich.
The first time I received it I don’t think it has a scent. So it’s totally different from the first impression. On the hair it’s not so nice for me cause I feel greasy already. On the skin, at first it feels quite greasy but it goes away. However the glitters will stay and you just look awesome. I guess it’s moisturizing but who cares about moisture if you can look sparkly all over.
Happy new year everyone. I will start this year with a post on my night time skin care regime.
I will start with makeup wipes. I bought this in Daiso. Daiso has so many different type of makeup wipes and I will eventually try them all. For $2 I start with this wipes. It kind of remind me of wet tissues. It is really wet, so if you use this in air con room, it’s really nice and cooling. The wetness is good for removing makeup including waterproof mascara. I really like that, unlike wet tissues. It comes in 30 sheet per box, really nice for a monthly wipes.
Then I will wash my face with Cle De Peau Creme Demaquillante, which is basically a cleansing cream. I really like it. It removes makeup really well. If I forgot to use the wipes, I will just use this and it removes my makeup just as well. This doesn’t hurt my eyes, so it’s really good to get rid of waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin soft without needing to use actual cleanser.
After brushing my teeth and stuff, I will use Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals to tone my skin. This smells amazing. The rose is not that strong, but rather lovely. It feels nice on the face. Very gentle and refreshing.
I will use Nuxe 24h Soothing and Moisturizing Cream next if I am super tired. But most of the time I will use this after eye cream. This moisturizer is indeed very soothing. It has this scent that calm you. At first I don’t really like it, but eventually I fell in love. It is thick but blend really easily. I like that. It’s not overly oily on the face, and it’s great for night time as when I wake up, my face will be really refresh. The moisture is all absorb into the skin.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair was my night serum. The first time I use this, I woke up with a super awesome glowing skin. It lasted only a day as the next day my skin is back to normal. And eventually I started breaking out around the forehead and cheek. After much analysis I figured this was the culprit. True enough. Though it was only a sample, I felt I had to finish it. So I just use it once a week. Except on that first day, I don’t think I see a difference with my skin. So this is a no for me, but I know many people love it. Oh the scent is also quite off putting. Exactly of herbal scent, the unpleasant kind.
Estée Lauder Re-nutria Eye Creme is used after serum. This is really rich and only a tiny amount is needed each time. I was frustrated with my black under eye, I used to lather this on. I then found out milia was growing. Upon research I found out that I used too much eye cream. And so I found that this is a really good rich eye cream. This is 15ml and will last forever, but the lifespan of eye cream is 6 months and its in a container so better follow that guideline.
So cleanse, tone, serum and moisturize, the next step is to use mask. Those sheet masks at least.
I had been using Sexy Look Intensive Firming Duo Lifting. As you can see, the hole for the eye is rather tiny. At least the right one is. It is extremely uncomfortable. I don’t have a problem with the blue one. And all the masks in the box is the same. So maybe I got a bad box or it’s like that. This mask is moisturizing even though I only leave it on for awhile, not the full 15 minutes. So that’s about it.
After the mask, I will use acne cream if I have spots and lastly I will apply a lip balm.
I heard of Black Box a long time ago, and I signed up for it. But I don’t really know how it worked. Cause some people actually managed to get this free box, and I wanted one too. Last month they emailed us saying how their website has change and you can ballot for a free box. You can secure a free box just by paying for $6 shipping. They only had 500 boxes for that.
I wasn’t very interested in the October box when I saw the participating brands. So I wouldn’t pay $6 for it. But I did try to ballot for it. I did not know I was successful as all I did was click the link and put my email address and they told me I am eligible for balloting. Then I had to log in but I did not know my password and I’m just lazy to check my email.
Anyway there was another email saying everything was sold out and 1500 boxes were successfully given out to the winners. A few days later I got an email saying my box will be sent to me between a certain time. It was like winning a lottery. How awesome!
So this is the box. Sorry for the longwinded story, but that’s practically how Black Box work. If you’re in Singapore, just sign up, try your luck. The next one is for December box, but the balloting has not start? I am not sure. I only got the email for securing the box.
So far, all I did was do a short survey online after I got the box to win full-sized products. That’s it. They never ask you to do anything, not even ask you to refer to friends. But good things must be shared right? And it’s unisex, so it’s really for everyone. Then again it’s free. You can always pass it to anyone of you don’t like it.
So I received a card with the description of the product like where to buy, how to use and also some discount coupons.
Lovemore Snailmucin Repairing Eye Patch.
VDL CC Cream has SPF 25. Have not try this yet, but it’s great to have for upcoming mini vacations.
Bifesta Cleansing Lotion (sebum) is a really cool product. It’s a makeup remover and cleanser at the same time. You don’t need to wash your face after using this. Just rinse it if you want. A product after my own heart. The samples come with cotton pads, but I think the full size is just the lotion.
Darlie Enamel Protect Toothpaste who doesn’t love free toothpaste? It’s a travel size which probably cost $2 if you buy from Watsons.
Zappy Sampler Pack now this is cool.
Look at that, it’s all in wipes form and it has different type of purpose. I like the sunscreen one. How cool to use sunscreen with a wipe. It’s just so easy and unique. Plus it’s SPF50. I also like the insect repellent and well everything. Cause it’s all really useful to me. Per pack will cost around $2 – $5.50 and different type of wipes will contain different quantity. But I really think Zappy is really neat. Love it. Great to have for traveling or on the go.
Lastly, I got Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil which is a multi-purpose dry oil. I haven’t have this so it’s nice to get it. It can be use for the face, body or hair. This is shimmery which I think will be nice to use for parties while keeping your skin moisturized. I have an idea, put it all over your body and you can be the Cullen for Halloween, even though it’s over but I only think of it. Anyway, I like to put this at the ends of my hair to give them an extra sparkle. It doesn’t has a scent or anything though.
So ya that’s it for my free Black Box.
I received my April box earlier this month. From the way it was described, I thought I’ll be receiving products with tasty scent. I guess, I was just taken away by the sweets picture. Anyway, I like the green polka dot wrapper with the orange sticker.
