The latest innovation from luxury natural skincare favourites Nuxe is Merveillance Expert, a high tech anti-ageing range that aims to reverse and prevent the effects of glycation.
What is glycation, you ask? Well, it’s actually something that happens in all skin as it matures. Over time, sugars become attached to the proteins that help skin maintain its youthful plumpness and flexibility (vimentin, collagen and elastin), and when there is too much, the proteins are inhibited from doing their job properly. As time goes on, skin becomes slack and dull, and wrinkles begin to form.
Merveillance Expert harnesses the power of a star ingredient: the Daylily (3 patents pending), a powerful natural ingredient that not only protects the skin’s natural function from being disrupted by glycation, but also helps to remove all existing sugars – a bit like a reset button for your skin. The result is smoother, firmer, more supple skin that is well protected. Oh, and the ultra silky textures and beautiful floral scent are pretty fantastic, too.
To give the Merveillance Expert range a thorough test-run before its launch, our resident skincare fanatic and customer service whiz, Pat, used the range daily for a full six weeks. Here’s what she had to say about the results…
Merveillance Expert Firming Eye Cream
“The best way for me to describe this lovely cream is light, gentle and super efficient. It’s such a pleasure to use, and unlike a lot of eye creams, it does not irritate my eyes. I do have fine lines around my eyes but they now look softer and much less defined, so this is a product that I will definitely continue to use in the long term.”
Merveillance Expert Firming Serum
“I have been using the serum for 6 weeks and my fine lines appear to be far less noticeable. This serum has a fabulous creamy texture and it sinks into the skin so easily, leaving no residue. It makes a perfect base for the matching day and night creams and really gives them a boost, making my skin feel firm and fresh yet extremely pampered. When used under foundation it gives my skin a fresh, glowing appearance. “
Merveillance Expert Correcting Cream
“I will admit that a regular day cream has been lacking in my daily skincare routine. But, after trying this treat from Nuxe, I have been won over and it has now become as important to me as my night cream. I look upon it as my ‘protection’ against the harsh daily elements, it glides over skin with a silky softness and sinks in immediately. My foundation is so much easier to apply and now has much better staying power.”
Merveillance Expert Regenerating Night Cream
“To me, my night cream is the most important product that I put onto my skin. After cleansing thoroughly and using the Nuxe serum, I delight in using this night cream because I know that in the morning my skin looks and feels so rested. Used with the serum I can see such positive results after using this cream – and best of all, I love it when people say, “your skin is glowing”.”
