NUDE Advanced Cellular Renewal Moisturiser

NUDE Advanced Cellular Renewal Moisturiser Hurrah and hooray to the two winners of the NUDE Advanced Cellular Renewal Moisturiser, who are: Viktoria (Twitter @EternalLife_) and Yasminec9, both of whom should have received an email from me by now! If they haven’t, it means I have forgotten, so please do feel free to leave a comment to remind me! (Brain like sieve.)

I have been testing away with my own sample of the Advanced Cellular and can report that it is indeed very lovely. Rich but not greasy, it targets signs of ageing such as elasticity and fine lines, so it’s probably more suited to people in their late twenties onwards rather than younger skin – at £78 you don’t want to be slathering this on until you need to! I have been using it alongside the NUDE Serum and my skin has looked plump and fresh. I like having a matchy-matchy serum and moisturiser, but it’s not entirely necessary. There are benefits to using skincare from the same brand and range, though, and one of those, I think,  is that they have often been formulated specifically to work together. If you go off on a tangent, you may find yourself using a serum that counteracts the effects of the cream that you follow it with, or you might be giving your skin mixed signals. I suppose it all depends which products you mix and match with and how au fait you are with the various active ingredients.  Anyway, something to be said, there, in favour of matching serums! How do you feel about serums in general?

Well done to Viktoria and Yasmine – there will be another giveaway very soon, I’m coming up with a plan for something special!

    I actually got two samples of the NUDE moisturiser and serum and I was going to start using it this week but I guess I’ll give it a miss now because I’m in my early 20’s! Btw I got hold of a sample of creme de la mer moisturiser and I’ve been trying it for two weeks! I’m going to write up a review on it soon but I wanted to know what you think of it, I saw you mentioned it in one of your Holiday/Christmas/expensive things video! xx

      @BaB oh it’s gorgeous though, so I’d totally use the samples!! C de la M cream is slightly too rich for my skin, but I have a full review coming soon from someone with suitable skin! xx

    I’m not sure layering stuff over a serum makes a lot of sense, and wonder if I’m wasting my pennies bothering? Am I diluting the serum’s effect, and how can a new layer have much effect on the skin, since it’s already slathered in serum? It doesn’t stop me appling a new layer of gunk, but I do wonder… anyway, if it was either/or, it would have to be serum, definitely. I do think, on balance, a serum is more efficacious, and possibly, depending on product, is fine on its own xxx

      I must do some proper research into serums, actually. I understand how a lot of them work, but I’m sure that there are quite a few duds out there!

    Ruth, there is also a gel version of the la Mer cream. It’s perfect for combination skin!:)

    Hi Ruth. I actually decided that I’m going to use serum once I’ll turn 30, and that’s what I did. I started using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum, but with a different cream..(JEANNE PIAUBERT- skin saver chrono-which is amazing, I have been using it for the past 7 years). Do you think they counteract each other? :(

      @Ayax I was more thinking about things like, for example, soothing serums followed by a resurfacing/exfoliating moisturiser or vice versa, or people who might use two very strong products together. Equally, some creams after an exfoliating serum that needs to work at a certain pH might raise the overall pH to a point where the serum becomes ineffective.. I was speaking in quite general terms because I’m no scientist, so I wouldn’t be able to tell you about specific products, I’m afraid! It was more ‘thinking aloud’ about the general dilemma! What do EL suggest to use after ANR? I can’t remember… Must dig out my ANR, it’s good stuff if I remember rightly?! xx

    Yes, it’s nice. I hope it’s doing something in preventing aging. After all, this is the reason of using serum in the first place, right? :)

    Hello lovely Ruth :) I’m sorry I keep dragging you back to old posts! I do follow your new ones, honest! :)
    I am just in the market for a new moisturiser and I wondered if you had found anything more impressive since you last reviewed ‘Nude’?
    I, like you, enjoy my little skincare rituals and while I have a variety of LG’s, serums and masks etc I don’t really have a GREAT moisturiser to work atop my serums. I usually use Clinique’s Turnaround radiance Renewer, or liquid gold day serum and have recently started using the matching Nude serum (as above). I just wondered what day moisturiser do you really rate right now? New products are coming out all the time and I hate to use such hard working products in my cleansers, toners and serums just to have my moisturiser mooch around! With the majority of my products being exfoliative (it is SO a word!), I wonder if I needed something with some vitamins or collegen boosting? I just feel like my skin needs *something*.
    Now you will REALLY hate me for this bit.. I would LOVE to see a list, not even a video because it might make you suicidal, of the products you use over the period of a week.. (I know, I know….). My reasoning is that I know you say you use LG (for example) a few times a week but then so many other things are also in the mix I honestly don’t understand when they are being used! If I were to humbly beg of you, would you consider just writing down every product after you use it so we get the full picture of your real skincare routine? Then we can do the legwork and look up all the bits and pieces you mention :) I know it’s a HUGE request, but I thought I would throw it out there.. It’s hard to understand how switching products constantly allows time to reap the particular benefits of them, but at the same time, I want to use what ever I can to give my skin the best ingredients I can.
    And FINALLY I just want to thank you from the heart for all the work that you do for us, for free. It’s such a selfless and kind project to have begun, and really is a lifeline for women out here that would otherwise be lost in a sea of expensive advertising campaigns and magazine ‘promotions’. Thank you for sharing not only your time, but your expertise. Ordinary women wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to come across some of the products that you do as a model, and sharing your little finds helps ‘bridge the divide’ that many women might often feel. Thank you for helping us feel a little less ‘ordinary’. xx
