Skincare - Body -Nuxe - reve de miel - family balm

I buy this balm for the family every year. As the name says, it is for the family. It is the only one my excema prone daughter will tolerate when in crisis, my husband that as many husbands hates anything greasy or sticky will admit on his skin when hes has a little "somethin". I put it on my hands, my feet, sunburns, chapped lips, you name it. The smell is wonderful. It looks thick but it actually sinks into your skin. I have oily skin, I know what I say, it likes "evaporates" into your skin, must be the plant oils... I don't find it expensive for the results and the such little amount you need. One thing people should know is that the owner of the brand is the sister of Terry of the divinely exclusive line "By Terry". In France Nuxe is sold in Pharmacys. I don't know in the U.S.

I live in spain and use it everyday on my armas, hands and everything that is naked (legs). It is wonderful, I get a soft tan but no sunburn. The smell is wonderful. I find my hands look actually younger since I use it religiously, I am 48. Ladies, make the deduction you need...

The set is great, the brushes are soft and lovely. I use it in the car in the morning and I reach the office all made up. It even makes my husband laughs, that is worth everything. I don't know why I would buy it again, but surely if I lost it ;-)
Lotions/ Creams -Paula's Choice - RESIST Skin Revealing 10% AHA Lotion

I use it everywhere, even on my face. I love it, I put it at night and I wake up with a soft skin from toes to the tip of my nose. The smell is weird at the beginning, but you get used to it. Paula's products are great, I converted my whole family, husband, and even my sons (in their twenties) you can say say what you want, it speaks for itself!!!!!
Liquid -Paula's Choice - Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25

Love it. Colours are wonderful, consistency is weird but the result on your face is wow! My skin is oily and this is the only foundation that leaves it looking fresh for most of the day. It doesn't get in my fine lines around the eyes as others do. Wonderful!! All Paula's products are very clever! I'm worried they will stop selling it as it is now a cearance item though.
Shampoo -Paula's Choice - All Over Hair & Body Shampoo

I can't understand why people complain about the lack of fragrance, it is what I best like about it, it simply smells of fresh. In the summer it is lovely to use it everywhere including face. You get out of the shower feeling fresher than ever, a lovely feeling!!!
I tried the aspirin mask after reading reviews on MUA. I'm 47, I have a rather good skin with oily patches, this mask gives great results. I use it once a week and it removes all my blackheads and millia. I use it with tea tree oil(20 drops) and gren clay powder (enough to cover my face with a thick coat). I use 8 aspirin that I dissolve in just enough water to cover the aspirin tablets, then I put the tea tree oil, I mix and then I put the clay powder, add some more water, some more clay until I get a paste that suits me. I apply on my face and wait sometimes for up to an hour. Normally, with clay, after 20 minutes my face starts stinging, but because of the tea tree all I get is a wonderfully cool effect with extra toning!!! So ladies don't hesitate!!! I sometimes put some honey that is suposed to be great for more mature skins with equally good results. All redness is gone and my skin looks 15 years younger. I highly recommend it to people of any age.
