The best beauty duo from Nuxe?

img_1254-1.jpg

No matter how much I tried to take from home and carry with me sufficient supply of various products, no matter how much I tried to fit every possible favourite cream into my suitcase and still remain below the Croatia Airlines luggage limits, I still could not have prepared myself sufficiently for the fact that I will probably still be using everything up in these six months. True, I did use up my eye area creams, my lip balms, and many more things, but the point is that I just had to – whether I wanted it or not – show some money and go get new pieces. Those products that I had used up were indeed really good, but me, a beauty blogger, really felt like trying new stuff. After all, when in France, buy French! In the end I decided to scale up and go get two of the most common products that get hauled in the para-pharmacy range.

Koliko god se htjela spakirati da od doma ponesem apsolutno sve favorite i bez čega ne mogu živjeti, koliko god uspijevala ja toga potrpati u kofer i još uvijek ostati u granicama Croatie Airlines, još se uvijek ne mogu pripremiti dovoljno na činjenicu da ću onoliko koliko mi stane vjerojatno potrošiti u izvjesno vrijeme tijekom ovih šest mjeseci koliko sam tu :škrtica: I istina, potrošila sam kremu za oko očiju, potrošila sam mazalice, potrošila sam još puno toga, ali poanta je da sam na kraju – htjela, ne htjela – morala posegnuti u džep i kupiti nove komade.  Proizvodi čije sam prazne ambalaže hitnula u smeće jesu bili super, ali ne bih ja bila ja da nisam bila željna isprobavanja novoga, stoga sam odlučila konačno (kad si u Francuskoj, kupuj francusko) uzeti dva najčešće hvaljena proizvoda s polica parafarmacije (nemam pojma kako mi zovemo parafarmaciju, tobož-ljekarna? :Đ)

Nuxe Prodigieuse eye cream and Reve de miel lip balm
Nuxe Crème Prodigieuse Yeux eye cream

According to my beauty junkie friends, this is the best cream for the eye area from Nuxe. I think it was around € 16, which would usually be too much for my student standards for a 15 ml cream, but since I was already ready to go get a new bottle of the La Roche Posay Toleraine one, which was around € 20… We’ll be getting this one. Just in case, I scanned through all of the other, similarly priced eye creams and this one seemed like the best because it was one of the rare ones who had oil at the second place, before glycerin, followed by a bunch of oils and fatty ingredients of all types and sorts, and this was enough for me to go to the check out with this cream in my hands. Besides, look at that shade of purple :Đ Texture wise, I might have expected something a bit greasier I guess, but I still have to admit that this is one of the richest textures I have used so far around my eyes, while still being sufficiently light to get absorbed easily. I find it great for applying and using it during the day, in the morning, and when I want something a bit stronger, I put another layer after the first one. The scent is a bit floral and it reminds me of those old perfumes, and fabric softeners, so it has a soapy hint if I can say so, but that is its biggest flaw because I would prefer something more fresh or even without a scent in this case. What I want to say is that if you do not like your current eye cream, take the packaging and take a look what is between Aqua and Glycerin. If there is nothing or a bunch of herbal extracts, and you want something different, I can recommend you this one. But if you really want to go hardcore, maybe it is better for you to try cold-pressed plant oils.

Prema savjetima mojih kolegica zaljubljenica u kozmetiku, ovo je navodno najbolja krema za područje oko očiju iz redova Nuxea. Mislim da je bila oko 16 eura, što mi inače je kao puno za 15 ml jedne kremice jednom studentu, ali već ako sam bila spremna uzeti ponovno La Roshe Posay Toleraine za 20-ak eura… Probat ćemo mi ovu.  Za svaki sam slučaj preletjela po sastojcima svih drugih krema koje sam mogla naći (i da su mi cjenovno bile ne skuplje od LRP-a) i moram priznati da mi se ova jako svidjela jer je bila jedna od rijetkih koja je na drugom mjestu imala ulje, znači ispred glicerina. Dalje ide hrpa svakakvih ulja i masnih tvari uglavnom, što mi je bilo sasvim dovoljno da odlučim odšetati na blagajnu s njom u ruci. Uostalom, nije li krasna ova nijansa ljubičaste :Đ Što se teksture tiče, možda sam očekivala nešto mrvicu masnije, no i dalje moram priznati da je na dodir jedna od bogatijih kremica za područje oko očiju koje sam probala, no i dalje je dovoljno laka da se može upiti u razumnom roku. Super mi je za tijekom dana, a kad poželim nešto jače stavim i drugi sloj kada se prethodni upije. Miris ima neki floralni koji me previše podsjeća na kombinaciju starih parfema i omekšivača, mrvicu je sapunast, ali hajde, to mu je najveća mana jer bih preferirala u ovom slučaju možda nešto svježije ili čak bez mirisa. Ono što vam želim reći je da ako ste nezadovoljne svojom kremom za oko očiju, uzimte pakiranje i vidite što se nalazi između Aqua i Glycerin. Ako su jedan za drugim ili se tu nalazi biljni ekstrakti, i želite nešto hranjivije, preporučam da isprobate ovu. Ali ako stvarno očekujete brda i doline od vaše buduće kreme, možda bolje da se okrenete prirodnim, hladno prešanim uljima.

Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm
Nuxe Rêve de miel ultra-nourishing lip balm

Originally called “honey dream”, this product does feel like pampering your lips with something as good as honey (but not so liquidy, though). It was the first beauty product that I have bought here in France, back in January. I use it every single day, in the morning and before bedtime, and I seriously haven’t spent like a half of it. The jar contains 15 g, which will obviously last you a long while, and it cost me almost € 10 in a pharmacy (just for the sake of comparison, one average chopstick contains around 4,5 g of product). The ingredients are good, except for this tiny amount of silicone in it, and the packaging might gross some people out, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying it. The only thing that I might say I mind are those tiny particles that can be found every here and there, that do absolutely nothing, but bother me because it looks like I was eating a piece of toast or a croissant and now I have a tiny, clingy crumble hanging out with my lips. Go away, crumble. I need to apply my lipstick. The texture is also great, super easy to apply, not too greasy, and my lips haven’t felt dry not even once during my stay. Overall, I am a satisfied user of this and intend to get a new one when I’m done with this jar, but I might actually look for a chopstick form because I have seen that Nuxe has a type or two of those lip balms, but I need to verify whether it is the same product or not in the ingredients list.

U prijevodu “medeni san”, korištenje ovog balzama stvarno podsjeća na njegovanje usana nečim jednako hranjivim kao med (ali ipak ne toliko tekuće). Ovo je prvi proizvod koji sam kupila po dolasku  u Francusku, još tamo davno u siječnju, i od onda ga nisam potrošila ni pola, a koristim ga svako jutro i svaku večer. Očito će njegovih 15 g trajati još jako dugo, a jedna je teglica koštala 10 eura u malo većoj ljekarni (čisto za usporedbu, jedno “labelo” u prosjeku ima oko 4,5 g proizvoda). Sastojci su dobri, osim što mi se nije svidjela mala količina silikona u balzamu, i nekima se možda neće svidjeti pakiranje u obliku teglice (helou prostoru pod noktima!), ali meni i nije toliki problem. Jedino što bih promijenila su nekakve sitne čestice koje se mogu pronaći tu i tamo i onda se zalijepe za usnu i tamo se druže previše, pa izgledam kao da imam mrvicu tosta ili kroasana na ili oko usana. Šu, mrvice, moram staviti ruž! Tekstura je super, jako se lako razmazuje, nije premasno i usne mi se nijednom nisu osjećale suhima ili ispucalima koliko sam ovdje. Sve u svemu, osjećam se kao zadovoljan korisnik i definitivno mislim kupiti novu teglicu kada ovu dokrajčim (što očito neće biti skoro), doduše možda ću prvo potražiti postoji li isti ovaj balzam, samo u onoj klasičnoj verziji balzama za usne, jer mi se čini da sam vidjela da Nuxe ima jedan ili dva takva balzama, samo moram čekirati sastojke da prvo ustvrdim jesu li to dva identična proizvoda, samo u drugačijem pakiranju.

So those would be my new, recently purchased Nuxe products I love using on a daily basis, and I would like to hear your favorites, what do you use and if there is something you think I might love as well 🙂

Ovo bi bila dva moja nedavno kupljenja Nuxe proizvoda koja volim koristiti svakodnevno, a sad bih voljela čuti vaše favorite, što vi koristite i ima li nešto što mislite da bi mi se moglo svidjeti jednako kao i vama 🙂
