Great product for people who is looking for a light, refreshing, and easily absorbed eye product. Very expensive at NT$2100 or US$66 for 15ml (will become NT$2300 or US$72 starting from Mar. 08). The serum comes in a brown dropper bottle which is both chic and functional at the same time. The serum is relatively light comparing to Aesop's parseley eye cream, provides enough hydration for …Read more

Great texture, divine scent, and a good moisturizer. But is there anything else special in this product that makes me willing to shell out NT$6,200 (US$180) for this 40ml moisturizer? Nothing. This is just a well formulated moisturizer, and nothing more. The texture is smooth and easy to spread, perhaps a little bit greasy for combination skin in the summer, but will be suitable for the …Read more

Love this! My face is so supple and smooth that I can't resist my desire to feel it once in a while after application. The serum is very light and easy to absorb, yet possesses amazing moisturizing ability. It evened out my skintone and made my face glow! I can't comment on the anti-aging effects of the serum as I'm not even in my 20s yet, but I'll definitely repurchase …Read more

I got this in a GWP. I like the texture, neither too thick nor too runny. It's sort of like Shiseido White Lucent Moisturizing Gel Cream's texture. The product is pretty moisturizing in my opinion, at least it's enough for me to use in the summer. It did lighten dark circles by a little bit, and mildly alleviated the puffy feeling I get when I wake up in the morning. But for …Read more

I've used a sample of the old Idealist serum, which in my opinion is lighter and easier to absorb than this improved formula. However, the moisturizing ability of the new formula is a lot better than the older formula, so a few seconds of shine on my face won't be that much of a problem. My pores aren't huge, but they tend to become more visible toward the end of the day because …Read more

The cleanser started out to smell really nice. A natural aroma of rose that is light, refreshing, and not too overpowering. It foams alright, quite nice actually if you use a sponge. Although it doesn't leave my skin silky soft, but it won't dry it out either, my skin is just "clean" after this. Sounds nice, right? But the one thing that destroys the product is …Read more

Fantastic body lotion! I bought this for around US$16 during a sale(great bargain!). The smell is divine, you feel like you're in a forest when you smell it. The texture is great, easily absorbed, yet provides perfect nourishing for my dry winter skin.

Great product. The light gel texture sinks right into skin without any stickiness and provide just right moisture for my combo skin during summer. I usually mix this with a few drops of lavender vinegar from L'Occitane for added shine/acne control. The only downside of this is the price of it outside of North America, a bottle of this is retailing for more than US$40 in Taiwan.

I recieved a sample of this product and I'm totally in love with it. The texture is fabulous, melts into your skin immediately with no residue. The scent is perfect. My skin is dewy and supple the next morning. However, this cream is intended for anti-aging use...but I'm only 16... I hope NUXE will make a simple ver. of this without the anti-aging effect.
