Show me a beauty/fashion obsessed woman who is not inexplicably drawn to all things French, and I’ll show you a liar. Within months of launching my blog, I enrolled in not one but two French language courses. Now, the two French classes being taken at the same time was the unintentional result of a little Groupon-ing incident, but for the sake of this article, let’s pretend I was really that dedicated to beauty that I wanted, no needed, to parlez-vous français. My French recently came in handy recently when I was given a sample of a popular skincare product in France that is now available in the US, Nuxe Paris’ Nuxellence Jeunesse Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid.
In this case, it may be the English words that are harder to interpret than the French. ‘Jeunesse’ means ‘youth’ or ‘the time when you are young’, but what exactly is a youth and beauty revealing fluid? That question was best answered by letting my skin experience such a thing. As it turns out, a Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid is as glorious as it sounds. But I’m jumping ahead here.
Translating How To Use It
At first I was confused as to how to integrate the product into my skincare regimen. Where in the midst of wash, tone, serum, eye cream, spot treat blemishes, and finally moisturize would I be able to add in the youth fluid? Using the advice I’ve received in the past that products should be applied lightest to heaviest, the thicker than a serum and lighter than a moisturizer Nuxellence found its way onto my skin between (and sometimes in place of) serum and always before moisturizer. The fluid is absorbs quickly into the skin, but leaves a lingering light, delicious scent and really softens the skin immediately.
But Does It Work?
The long term results, according to the research that Nuxe Paris conducted for years before releasing the product, include smoother, more radiant, plump skin, and fewer wrinkles and fine lines. How does it achieve all that? By repairing the mitochondrial DNA of the skin with the 10 patented ingredients infused into the Nuxellence Youth Fluid. More of the nitty gritty as to the science behind the patended ingredients is available on Nuxe Paris’ website. This is one intelligent French beauty product that is worth taking the time for first hand, experiential education.
