Anyone with combination skin, listen up! I think I may have found a solution… I’ve been using the Nuxe Aquabella range for the past 4 weeks, three products that work together to ultimately help balance the skin. Having a combination of skin concerns it can be hard to get it right, but Nuxe really have taken the hard work out of it with their brand new Aquabella range. It’s designed to hydrate, add radiance and help reduce sebum production at the same time – basically everything I need from my skincare.
There are currently 3 products in the range and I’ve been using all of them as part of my routine. I start off with the Micro-Exfolating Purifying Gel. If you have combination skin gel cleaners are definitely the way to go. This is a daily use cleanser that helps reduce excess sebum and keep skin hydrated. It doesn’t foam or strip the skin of any moisture, and the light fresh/ floral scent makes it feel so refreshing to use. I’m not usually a fan of a beaded exfoliator, but the natural micro-beads are gentle yet effective. This leaves my skin feeling super soft after use.
For combination skin some sort of essence or mist are essential before moving onto a moisturiser. Skin is like a sponge, if it’s dry it won’t be able to absorb the products as easily. Adding a hydrating step like the Beauty- revealing Essence Lotion creates that moisture to help any other products you want to use absorb into the skin better.
Again like the cleanser it boosts hydration. It also helps to mattify my skin and tighten pores. I especially love using this in the morning, it’s only lightly scented so isn’t at all over bearing and just leaves my skin feeling refreshed and ready for moisturiser. Having combination skin I used to find it difficult to find products that worked well together to leave my skin feeling balanced. This really is a gem that manages to be the best of both worlds.
Lastly I move onto moisturiser. Usually finding a moisturiser is something I would struggle with, and my picky combination skin won’t settle for anything. I absolutely love how light yet nourishing the Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion is. I think this will be a good one for the summer months as it does a brilliant job at controlling oils in my t-zone, and like the rest of the range keeps my skin hydrated. The formula is enriched with a natural blur complex that definitely comes through, I love using it pre makeup for this reason as it leaves my skin smooth and makeup ready.
If you couldn’t tell already, I’m pretty smitten with these products. They are affordable, effective and work so well for my combination skin.
