Nuxe Reve de Miel Face Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel

I’ve got some bad news and some good news. Two weeks ago, my friend V received a text message from Philosophy saying that their last remaining boutique in SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall is closing its doors for good on the 31st of March this year, so all of their products are on sale until stocks last. Where do we get our fix now??? At least for the Purity Made Simple Cleanser, I seem to have found an excellent alternative. The good news: Here comes Nuxe Reve de Miel Face Cleansing and Make-up Removing Gel (regular price PHP 875).

Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Yeux Anti-Fatigue Moisturizing Eye Cream

When it comes down to it, eye creams are basically lighter versions of their face moisturizer counterparts. They’re tested specifically to work on the eyelids and the undereye, so that the likelihood of clogging or irritating the sensitive skin round that area (milia and such) is lessened. The rest of the special features, brightening dark circles and reducing eye bags, feel more like a bonus to me. From the French side of things, here’s a look at Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Anti-Fatigue Moisturizing Eye Cream (PHP 1,250).

New Blog Section and Nuxe Sampler Set

The tail-end of 2015 brought me some exciting turn of events. I’ll explain more later, but those changes are also spurring me into action. I’ve been thinking of adding a new type of entry to this blog since June of last year, and January 2016 has that inspiring ring to it. New year, new stuff, right? For this latest addition, I’ll start by setting up the context.

When you buy beauty products, you tend to amass samples. It started with a couple of Korean products here and there, but the Western brands are not be left behind. Add to that the generous gifting of family and friends, and you end up with a drawer of all sorts of samples that just sit there.

In trying to curb my spending for 2016, I’ve decided to use up everything in my stash, but not to let the experience go to waste. I’ll be trying samples and sharing my first impressions of these products, starting with a sampler set from the newly-launched Nuxe Philippines.
