On my last visit to Sephora, I picked up a serum from a french brand called NUXE. I have been on hunt for a good serum, though I had recently picked up Clinique Sculptwear Lift and Contour serum and was already using it, which I have already reviewed here. But this one from Nuxe seemed to be so reasonably priced as compared to Clinique one that I thought of giving it a try. I have been using it for more 15 days now, and thought of reviewing this was a right time to review it.
Price: INR 3400 for 30 ml
“This concentrated serum instantly smoothes and detenses skin. It fills in the appearance of visible expression lines. Immediately facial features appear more relaxed, visible signs of fatigue look diminished;skin seems to glow. Face and eye contour.”
Shelf Life: 3 years from date of manufacturing
The NUXE Visible Expression Lines Serum comes in a heavy glass bottle with a pump. The serum is of thicker consistency than most of the serums, and is light yellow in color. The serum smells strongly citrus. It might be a problem for sensitive nose, though the smell does not linger on for a long time.
I usually need two pumps for whole of my face and neck. It is creamy in texture, and hydrates a little as well. The skin immediately feels smooth after applying this serum. Since I have dry skin, I follow it up with my regular moisturizer.
After using for some time, I have not seen any visible difference in the fine lines, though my lines are not that visible to start with. But this serum has definitely made my skin more plump and softer. This has helped with my pigmentation as well. When I had started using Clinique Sculptwear, I had started noticing my pigmentation decreasing, though that serum was not actually meant for that. This serum has further helped to lighten pigmentation, especially I dark patch that I had on my cheek. It has started lightening with Clinique and has further improved while using this serum. It did not cause any irritation or break outs as well.
That said, I am not a fan of the smell. Also i have used it only for 15 days, once per day, and I am already half through the bottle. That way, it will last me hardly a month, and that too if I use it once a day. So I am not sure if that will turn out to be more economical than Clinique or Estee Lauder serum, since less cost was one of the reason I bought it. But is is still a decent serum, and I think it will be great for people who are just starting out with serums or ones who have serious visible lines can definitely try it out.
Will I repurchase and recommend the NUXE Visible Expression Lines Serum to others???
I will probably not repurchase this serum, as I feel I am not the right target for this product. I will recommend this serum only to those who have serious fine lines and want to try something out.
