REVIEW: NUXE Nuxuriance Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Day Emulsion
I started to trial Nuxuriance® Intense Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Emulsion exactly 6 weeks ago. As you can see from the image below, I used it every last bit of it but I’m confident you could squeeze 7 or even 8 weeks from the jar, as I probably used too much in the early days. To say I love this product it is a bit of an understatement.
I was looking to test this and the Liz Earle Superskin Moisturiser. I chose the Nuxe one first, as to be honest, I didn’t know much about it and thought it was the lesser product – WRONG!
It’s rather glamorously packaged in a heavy, green glass jar with a gold coloured lid. The scent, described by some as floral, reminds me of one those air-conditioned pharmacies you only find on holiday.
Described as an emulsion, it feels more like a slippy, dense cream; the colour is an unusual off white.
Surprisingly, for a day cream, it doesn’t contain sunscreen, something to be aware of. Then again, I only used it at night, as I found it too sticky on my skin to apply make up over it. The one time I did use it under foundation, it made my skin look shiny and it felt ‘tacky’.
Now the good stuff! Throughout the 6 weeks, I didn’t have one spot or blemish and zero dryness. This was the only product I used, I skipped two nights at most.
My skin is baby soft and whilst my pores haven’t noticeably tightened, my skin as a whole, is visibly smoother and yes a little bit ‘brighter’ looking.
But those are not the reasons I adore this product. After spending a staggering £75 on a cream specifically targeted to the décolletage area, with zero results, I’ve now got into the habit of applying any moisturiser/cream/serum I’m using on my face, on my chest.
I didn’t notice anything for the first few weeks, but the deep creases and texture on my décolletage has improved significantly. An unexpected, but very welcome surprise.
I’m beginning to wonder what would happen if I used this for a longer period of time. Actually, I won’t need to wonder too long because after I’ve trialled Liz Earle Superskin™ Moisturiser I’m going to buy a couple of jars to use solely on my chest area.
This is a brilliant discovery for me. I’ve not seen many reviews on the net, so if anyone has used it, or decides to try it, please let know your thoughts. The few reviews I’ve read have not described it as sticky, which is definitely was for me, so I would be interested to know what others think of this cream.
NUXE Nuxuriance® Intense Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Emulsion

4th March 2013
You will probably know NUXE, the luxury French skin care brand, from their versatile and gorgeously scented, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil. I’ve just drained the last drops from the teeny bottle I got with a Glossybox last year.
The Nuxe Nuxuriance Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Emulsion is part of the Nuxuriance programme that was specifically formulated to deliver effective help for skin weakened by hormonal changes.
It intensely re-densifies, evens out the complexion and restores radiance. It tightens the pores and refines and leaves the skin texture looking matte.
- 86% ingredients of natural origin – Excellent
- Hyaluronic Acid – Well known for its hydrating properties
- Phenoxyethanol and Paraben FREE – Phew!
- No sunscreen – Oh, that’s definitely something to be aware of
If you’re wondering why ‘paraben-free’ has become such a buzz word in cosmetic circles lately, it’s because parabens are used as cheap synthetic preservatives often found in beauty products to prolong their shelf life.
Various studies have shown that parabens can enter your body through your skin and interfere with your endocrine system, a collection of glands that secrete hormones directly into your bloodstream. Parabens can also cause skin irritation in people with rosacea. As I have an underactive thyroid gland AND roseaca, I’d rather choose a ‘paraben-free’ product when possible.
To keep it in perspective however, there is always some sort of health scare these days, but it helps to stay informed.
With daily use of this formula, you should notice a healthier looking and more radiant complexion. NUXE Nuxuriance Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Day Emulsion also endeavors to reduce the effects of hormonal changes on skin. Unfortunately, your hormones can have an impact on your skin as you age – you don’t say?
I’ll let know what happens in 6 weeks.
Usually priced at £42.70, NVS Pharmacy have it on sale for £38.43.
