Nude Skincare Review

Sorry I’ve taken so long to get this review up, I’m finally starting to get the use of my hand back so I can type properly! Hooray!
What can I say about my Nude trial kit? Not much other than Wow!
I was at Get Lippie's house yesterday for one of her uber special make overs. Even she said how my skin had a sheen and was super smooth! Woohoo!
During the week long trial I hadn’t been wearing any make up to speak of. I was still using my Liz Earl toner, and I applied the Advanced Smoothing Complex and the Age Defence Moisturiser with a cotton pad, as is my usual technique. I also didn’t wear any make up during the week except for yesterday afternoon.
How long does the kit last? Well, I’ve been using it for a week and it’s still going pretty strong. I use two pumps of everything except for the Advanced Smoothing Complex, of which I used one pump.
I used the Miracle Mask once during the week. I’m thinking it’s a bit of a brilliant find and I think I’m going to repurchase a full sized one! My skin felt noticeably smoother after i used it. It didn’t tingle or anything like that. In fact, I didn’t feel like I had any weird little reactions with any of the products.
Per my interim trial post, I loved the smell of the Cleansing Facial Oil. I really do love the smell of good quality olive oil! I used two pumps of this every morning and night. It’s hard for me to say what it’s like at taking off make up as I wasn’t wearing any this week. As a cleanser it felt really nourishing. To get a really clean feeling I needed to use my muslin cloth with it. If I just rinsed it off I still felt like I had a bit of residue left. My skin is definitely recovered from all of the dry skin issues I had with the chicken pox and all that awful weather as well!
After I used my Liz Earle toner I would put the Advanced Smoothing Complex on using a cotton pad. I’m a serious serum addict and this was lovely. I’ve been using the Boots Botanicals serum lately and it was so wonderful to use a really good quality serum. The Boots one is great for the price point but the Nude version is just a dream.
The Advanced Eye Complex was a tricky one to dispense the right amount of from the tube. I didn’t feel like one pump was quite enough but two pumps was waaayy too much. It took a minute to sink in so I ended up brushing my teeth before putting on the Age Defence Moisturiser. It’s hard to say if there have been any actual results from using the eye cream as it’ only been a week. Seeing as my overall complexion i looking so much smoother and more radiant, I’m guessing it’s safe for me to contemplate an extended eye cream experiment.
The regime is finished up with the Age Defence Moisturiser. I used two pumps and applied it with a trusty cotton pad. It would leave my skin feeling a little tacky afterwards and a little tighter. Not “tighter” in the way that I needed more moisturiser, but “tighter” in the way that my face felt a little younger! Result!
I  got the Facial Cleansing Oil for half price in the Space NK sale and I’m really glad I did. I’m not sure how I’d feel about repurchasing at full price. If you can grab a trial set like mine at for a bargain I can’t recommend it enough. It’s also so much fun running around town with the little tubes in a pocket of your handbag when you’re staying away instead of lugging around a massive wash bag!!!
I loved my Nude trial and if I wasn’t a fickle beauty blogger on a never ending crusade for the next greatest thing, then I’d definitely go out and commit myself to a full sized set of these goodies!
