When I was out in France, I stocked up on all my usual pharmacy buys. Nothing too fancy. I grab a big bottle of the Avene Micellar Water and a giant bottle of Roge Cavailles body wash I swear by because so many can make my skin itch and tighten up. But there is usually something that catches my eye and sneaks its way into my basket... This year it was this sweet little set by Nuxe, which at 11 Euros, felt like a pretty good way to test some products out.
This is the Nuxe 'The Essentials' Travel Kit. It contains five minatures of some of their best known products:
The Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals (30 ml), Nuxellence Youth and Radiance Cream (15ml), their Huile Prodigieuse (10ml), Rêve de Miel Hand and Nail Cream (15ml) and finally the Body Fondant Shower Gel (30ml). I'll be honest and say it was the mini Huile Prodigieuse that swung me, I'm a complete sucker for beauty oils and this is one I've had my eye on for a while.
I really like all of these products- unsurprising really, they are cult classics for a reason I guess! I'm still loyal to my usual Avene Micellar Water but this one was beautifully scented so I'm keeping it for my travels. The Nuxellence Cream I like a lot. It seems to really brighten my complexion, which is no mean feat now work is busying up and the temperatures are dropping so maybe if I'm feeling particularly flush I may add a full bottle to my routine - at £46 a pop it is by no means affordable! The woes of luxury skincare... The Huile Prodigieuse is absolutely wonderful for everything. Face, body, hair... It sinks in straight away and is so nourishing. This on my face before bed does wonders for dehydrated skin. Again, I think the next time I head across the channel, a bottle is going on my list. The hand cream and the shower gel are both good products- the cream is beautifully scented and makes cuticles soft and supple, whilst the shower gel is really gentle, but neither are top priorities for me in terms of purchasing again just because they are just a nice hand cream and shower gel...
What I really like about this little set is that it covers all bases when travelling. Having proper, quality make up removal and face cream is important when going away, even just for a weekend. The Huile Prodigieuse is a great multi-purpose product that saves a ton of space, a handcream is always a nice touch when going on planes and feeling dehydrated, and I'm always happy with a nice shower gel to avoid using the harsh ones so often available in hotels. It covers all bases, with something for face, body and hair whilst letting you enjoy a taster of Nuxe. For just £12.40 for the set, it is well worth a try, either side of the channel!
