New! Nuxe Aquabella skincare range for combination skin!

Is it just me or do you like changing up your skincare routine as the seasons change?  I know I've said this before, but for me, autumn signifies a new year, a fresh start and if you've let your skincare routine slip a bit over the summer, now is the time to get yourself sorted before the central heating and cold air takes hold!

Nuxe is one of my favourite brands and this year they've launched the Aquabella range, aimed at those of us with combination skin.  I'm still in the early stages of using the products but wanted to give you the heads up first as it can take me a while to properly test out skincare products.

Nuxe have combined two natural ingredients, White Waterlily and Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid, which work together to target the two issues that us combo skinned bridies deal with.  It gives "plumpy" fullness in dehydrated areas (anything that plumps out my bits is a winner in my book and also if it uses the word plumpy, all the better!) and helps keep the complexion clear in oily areas.

There are three products in the range, all reasonably priced and they smell gorgeous too.  I know that shouldn't be important, but I do love a clean fresh scent when it comes to skincare!  It's the perfect range for using in the morning when you want to look alive, feel alive and get cracking for the day.

The Aquabella Micro-Exfoliating Purifying Gel (€14.50) gives a deep clean to the skin without feeling dry or tight and the micro-beads are of natural origin FYI.  It's gentle enough to be used every day, but I've been using it every second morning and haven't found it too harsh on my little scaldy face.  It feels nice and cooling on the skin which is always handy when trying to wake up first thing am I right?

Next up is the Aquabela Beauty-Revealing Essence-Lotion (€17.00) which again has the White Waterlily and Hyaluronic Acid,  leaving the skin feeling smooth and soft.  It's kind of like a toner and it's kind of like an essence, which preps your skin for the final stage of your routine.  A couple of years ago you couldn't move for the amount of essences that were launching but they seemed to have calmed down, so I'm happy to be back using one again.  I don't know if it's making any difference to my skin, so I'm going to give it a break for a week and see if I can see or feel a change.

The Aquabella Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion (€27.50) is the product that targets the specific areas of your skin that I mentioned earlier.  So it plumps your dehydrated bits and keeps your oily bits matte thanks to a silica powder.  This feels lovely and lightweight on my skin and I'm keeping an eye on whether it keeps my oily bits matte, so I'll keep you posted!  I've been wearing it under my foundations and have been powdering my oily bits, so I can't say just yet if it's helping with the oil situation, but I'll keep using it and on days where I'm going makeup free, I'll be keeping an extra close eye on my schnoz and forehead!

The Aquabella range is out now and while some of Nuxe's skincare products can be on the spendy side, and while it isn't what I'd slot in the budget range, it's definitely on the more affordable side of things.  It's available in pharmacies nationwide and in the Marks and Spencer Beauty Hall.

Will you be trying out the range?  Who else has combo skin like moi?
