It’s so easy to envy French women – effortlessly elegant, stylish and beautiful, it’s no wonder that women all over the world have spent hours trying to recreate that look. Now, capturing that little slice of French beauty became easier, with cult French skincare brand Nuxe, hitting Australian shores.
Nuxe marries the goodness of botanical based active ingredients, and scientific innovation to ensure results. The brand comes from humble beginnings, with Aliza, the brand’s creator growing up, listening to her father tell stories of his pharmaceutical research. From everything he taught her, she took away five important rules.
- The most effective medications are derived or inspired by nature
- Research and innovation are essential
- A treatment must be closely followed to be effective
- Rigorous evaluations are crucial
- The most effective medications are not necessarily expensive
With those five rules in mind, Aliza followed her passion for plants and took over a laboratory called Nuxe. From there, Aliza’s brand blossomed, launching in 1991 with a product that would later become a cult favourite. Now, Nuxe is one of the best-selling brands in France and is distributed in 60 countries. Her products also have celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Marion Cotillard and Gwyneth Paltrow singing their praises.
Here’s an intro to the four new ranges hitting our shores:
Huile Prodigieuse is the ultimate cult product. On the market since 1991, this luxurious, soft scented oil was marketed as a miracle product. The product is actually a dry oil, perfect for applying to your body, hair and face. It soaks into the skin easily, enriching it with moisture without leaving it slippery or greasy like so many body oils. We love that the oil is free of silicones, preservatives and mineral oils – just using the goodness of plant oils and Vitamin E. The revitalising scent of orange blossom blends with mirabelle plum and lily to create a subtle and alluring fragrance. Available in 50ml (RRP $24.95) and 100ml (RRP $39.95).
The Merveillance Range is created to meet the needs of 40-something skin. This age is particularly important as it marks the time where signs of aging begin to show – particularly at the corners of the eye and sides of the mouth. The range includes a Serum (RRP $69.95), Crème (RRP $64.95) and Crème Enrichie (RRP $64.95). Enhanced with the sultry scent of Rose, Ylang-Ylang and Orange Blossom, it is designed specifically to diminish visible expression lines.
The Nirvanesque Range also targets the first appearance of expression lines. It uses innovative technology and the power of poppy and lotus seeds to inhibit the release of the chemical responsible for muscle contractions that lead to the formation of fine lines. The range includes a rich Crème (RRP $49.95) and Eye Contour Cream (RRP $44.95) to smooth out the skin.
Finally, the Reve de Miel is a body care range that uses the goodness of natural honey to nourish dry and sensitive skin. Including the Ultra-Rich Cleansing Gel (RRP $29.95), the Hand and Nail Cream (RRP $19.95), Ultra-Comfortable Body Cream (RRP $29.95) and a luscious lip balm (RRP $19.95).
