I have been using this NUDE ProGenius Firming Youth Oil for a year now and I completely rely on it to nourish my skin at night. It contains five Omegas – passion fruit seed oil which contains vitamins and minerals to help fight free radicals, Peacock’s Tail Algae which plumps the skin, Acai berry which not only looks great on your breakfast bowl, it contains anti-oxidants and a high percentage of Vitamin C, and finally Prickly Pear which is getting noticed in the beauty world due its amazing properties. If you can, try and get hold of products containing prickly pear, it’s amazing for the skin.
Here’s the benefits of Prickly Pear:
- Absorbs into skin quickly and hydrates it
- Restores skin elasticity and brightens the complexion including dark spots
- Tightens pores
- Slows down skin ageing and prevents wrinkles
Going back to breakfast smoothie bowls, this oil really does feel like it’s feeding the skin with goodness. The oil is dense and smells strange, but don’t worry, it smells like it’s vegan and organic so if you’re into earthy aromas, you’ll totally dig it. I’m used to the smell now and kind of like it because it’s soothing in a way, getting me prepared for bed.
I would recommend using this oil at night as it’s so rich, it would completely make your makeup slide off during the day. The oil is a dark yellow rich liquid which absorbs straight into the skin and nourishes the surface too without feeling uncomfortable and oily. The velvety formula has been designed to help firm and plump skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since using it, I have noticed how great it makes my skin look and feel, especially in the mornings. My only criticism is that it is quite expensive, however, it last for ages and its a great vegan product which really does wonders for your skin.
