I’ve been a big fan of Nude since the brand launched in 2005. For years I was a devotee of their facial cleansing oil, and still use it when I travel, or when my skin is feeling particularly sensitive. I was also a big fan of their lip balm which, unfortunately, they don’t seem to make any more.
After a few years without Nude in my life, I recently decided to invest in their Natural Radiance set. I’d been wanting to try the ProGenius Treatment oil for a long time in the hopes that it might be kind to my rosacea-riddled skin, but could never quite bring myself to spend the money. This way, I got a half bottle of the oil (15ml), a travel bottle of the cleansing oil (and that stuff really lasts) and a travel bottle of the Radiant Day Moisturiser.
After only a few days I was completely hooked on the oil. Used sparingly morning and night, my skin drank up this oily cocktail (10 precious oils make up the magical formula) and glowed from within as a result. My complexion was (and still is) noticeably clearer and softer, and when I apply a teeny bit (patting it into damp skin after a shower) before I put my make up on, the result is radiant and not at all oily. Of course, my skin is looking so much better as a result of using it that I rarely wear more than mascara and lip gloss when I leave the house. Happy days!
Like the facial cleansing oil, a little goes a long way, the teeny bottle lasted me a good 3 months, so in my mind it’s very much worth the investment, and I’ll soon be investing in a big bottle (and decanting into the teeny one for traveling, perfect.) I also rub any residue after applying into my cuticles, or if I’m going to bed, add hand cream and give my digits a little treat.
The Radiant Day Moisturiser wasn’t quite up to the job of hydrating my dry skin on a day-to-day basis, but I do keep it in my permanently packed wash bag for my frequent trips to California where it’s perfectly suited to those super hot days where anything else just ends up as an oil slick all over your face.
So there you have it, rosacea friendly, multi-tasking, skin beautifying goodness.
