I love trying new eye creams but I have to admit I’m not the best at remembering to use them every single morning and night. The skin of my under eyes is quite thin so they often look pretty dark and tired, even when I’m relatively well rested. In addition to using brightening eye creams, I like to use a corrector such as the Bobbi Brown Corrector which has a nice peachy tone to help counteract any darkness. The eye cream I’ve using until recently was the Vichy Lift Activ Serum which I have really liked but it doesn’t appear to have any brightening properties so I was really looking forward to trying the new NUXE Nuxellence Eye Contour which is suitable for all skin types, and for all ages and available to purchase from Feelunique.
The NUXE Nuxellence Eye Contour Cream is described as a renewing and revitalising treatment which utilises light-reflecting particles, resurfacing powders and ‘soft focus’ silicone spheres to restore luminous, youthful-looking eyes. The cream is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Passionflower with a lightweight, quick-absorbing formula which delivers long-lasting moisture and hydration, whilst helping to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet for a smoother, more refined texture.
The anti-ageing treatment gives a subtle apricot tint that adjusts to suit individual skin tone and dries to a powdery, matte finish. The NUXE Nuxellence Eye Contour is packaged within a lilac plastic tube with a silver metal, circular massage tip applicator designed to soothe, rejuvenate and combat signs of fatigue.
The end of the tube has two sides with a hole for the cream to be dispensed from which Nuxe recommend to dot under the eyes and then flip the tube over to massage the cream under the eyes and around the whole orbital bone area. The massage tip feels very cold on the skin, especially in the mornings and it makes me gasp almost every time I use it but the cooling effect really helps to soothe any puffiness and the applicator really does blend the cream in for you.
I’ve tried many different eye creams and I tend to prefer those with a rollerball but they don’t necessarily blend the eye creams in as I always have to massage the cream into the skin after using the rollerball but this massager both applies the cream and blends it into the skin.
The cream is a soft peachy shade which is said to suit all skin tones which I completely agree with as you can’t see any noticeable colour whatsoever once the cream has been fully blended into the skin. I don’t notice any blurring from the cream like the claims mention but it does feel very nice and moisturising on the skin.
I am surprised that this eye cream is £38 as it’s so much more than their other eye creams but I’m not sure I’ve noticed anything special about the formula compared to say the NUXE Eye Cream Prodigieux which I’ve also tried but it’s only £17. The cream may be a little more effective for those with lines and wrinkles, but as my issues are dryness, darkness and a little puffiness I’ve not noticed any lasting benefits since using it but I’m still glad I was able to try it as I really like the applicator.
