Nuxe Pamper Hamper

Hi everyone! Today I have something a little bit different for you. I don't normally do many wish list posts but I was recently contacted by Nuxe UK asking if I would like to take part in their first blogger competition. I absolutely love the brand (their lip balm is so dreamy) so I pretty much jumped at the chance to enter. The ultimate prize is a Nuxe pamper hamper worth over £250, plus two runner-up prizes! All you have to do is compile a wish list of Nuxe products that you would like to try for Spring. And seeing as it seems as though Spring has finally sprung (hooray!) I figured I would post my contribution on a gorgeous sunny day. As I write this I can hear my neighbours mowing their lawns - isn't that just a fabulous sound after experiencing so much horrid weather recently? 

So, come on, let's recover from Winter and get prepped for Spring with some lovely natural skincare products!

I adore this lip balm, and it's going on the wish list because it's so fabulous. We're getting into warmer weather but Spring still brings harsh winds in the UK so a nourishing lip balm is a must for me. Predominately for dry or chapped lips, this best-seller has a rich, luxurious texture that feels as if it's doing you some good. The scent is delicious too - it's like rubbing soothing honey on your lips! The product is also great to use at night as a repair treatment, on dry parts of the face, and to soften cuticles before a manicure. The perfect multi-purpose product all held in a handy little glass jar.

I don't know about you but I tend to neglect myself a little throughout the Winter months, what with all that indulgence, so this product really interests me. It's purpose is to reduce embedded cellulite by providing a triple overall contouring action - in other words, rejuvenate your Winter skin and get rid of your bumpy bits. On application, light correcting pigments are said to smooth the skin surface in an instant. The serum melts onto the skin immediately to leave it incredibly soft. The skin's orange-peel appearance is visibly reduced by 74%, as concluded in recent studies. The serum encourages fat breakdown with the help of plant caffeine, fat evacuation with micro-algae, and brazilian mimosa and glaucine extract sculpt and shape waist, hips, and thighs. It all sounds great to me, so it makes the wish list!

To go with nourishing lips, we need a nourishing day cream (and night cream, which I also recommend!). This product has a rich texture, and replenishes, restores, soothes and protects the skin from external aggression. Skin is intensely nourished and comfort is restored after use in the morning, applied to your freshly cleansed face. You can also add honey to the cream and use it as a face mask - genius!

This multi-use dry oil contains a gorgeous golden shimmer in order to get a head start on that Summer olive skin! You can use this on your face, hair and body but what's most important here is that it has a built-in shimmer for that sought-after radiant effect. 95.2% (very specific, huh?) of the ingredients derive from natural origins. It is a unique combination of 30% precious plant oils and vitamin E to nourish, repair, and soften in one single step. Your face and body are left feeling soft and silky, and your hair is left supple, soft with added shine. It sounds divine - and I'd be happy to place this on my dressing table as a prop because that packaging is so luxurious! I'm positive that a sunny Spring day would enhance those warm golden shimmer particles, too.

And finally, what is Spring without a fresh-faced look? This tinted moisturiser is available in three different shades: Natural Radiance, Golden Radiance, and Tanned Glow. I much prefer using tinted moisturisers in the Spring/Summer months because I want the natural tan of my face to show and find foundation way too heavy in the heat. This product has a light creamy texture, and combines plant active ingredients and mineral pigments for an ultra-natural glow and a "bare skin" effect. It seems to be a great all-rounder if you're blessed with clear skin!

So those are my Nuxe pamper picks for the Spring months ahead. If you would like to enter this competition, all you have to do is a have a nosey at the Nuxe website and decide on which products you think would be appropriate for Spring, pop them in a wish list post on your blog, and tweet the link to @NuxeUK with the hashtag #NuxePamperHamper. The competition ends on Monday 10th March 2014, so there is still plenty of time to get your entry in!
