Nuxe Nirvanesque review

The Nuxe Nirvanesque range was love at first sniff.  Described as having notes of green and mimosa, there's something so familiar and comforting about the scent and I urge you to have a whiff as soon as possible.

The first version of Nirvanesque was brought out back in 2004 and since then, a jar of the Nirvanesque cream is sold every 16 seconds!

Nowadays, we're busier, more stressed and trying to fit work and play around each other is hard enough without having to worry about our skin.  Nuxe have updated the Nirvanesque range and added in a neuro-relaxing action and a neuro-destressing action to help us 30 somethings brighten our complexions and smooth out the first signs of wrinkles.

The science behind it is that they've added Tree Peony Extract which helps extend the lifespan of the neurotransmitters that send stress-y messages from your brain to your face, causing you to do things like grimace because you had to deal with an annoying coworker, frown because it's home time and it just started lashing and you've no umbrella, and make pitiful faces because you're exhausted from going to bed late the night before, despite having promised yourself that you'd go to bed early.  Keeping your neurotransmitters in good nick means that all these things will still happen, but your visage will bounce back in no time from making mad faces.

There are two versions of the Nirvanesque creams (€36.30) ; one for normal and one for dry to very dry.  The normal version has Rose Musk Oil where the dry version has Macadamia Oil.  Both leave the skin nourished, hydrated, soothed and de-stressed.

For those of us with combination skin, there's a light version of the cream (€36.30) which leaves a matte finish on the skin but still smoothed and again de-stressed.  Finishing up the new collection is the eye cream (€21.60) which has corrective pigments and caffeine to help fight dark circles and combined with hyaluronic acid, it's a moisturising eye cream which, you've guessed it, de-stresses the skin.

I'm absolutely loving this range and have set aside the dry to very dry cream for Lovely Mammy Bits to try.  My skin loves the range and looks and feels plumped, hydrated and with all the stresses that are going on in life at the moment, you wouldn't know it from looking at me!

The new Nirvanesque collection is on shelves now!
