I must apologise for my prolonged absence; I’m currently on Day 12 of a horrible cold-cough-throat virus thing that I’m finding hard to shift, and I have, until today, been stuck in bed. But I’m back, albeit mentally limping, and I have a wonderful giveaway for you to kick off the new year. (I know, I’m late to the party with the new year thing…)
Detox Gentle Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash is the latest launch from NUDE skincare, who have previously brought us beauty gems such as the gorgeous Cleansing Jelly, the ProGenius Treatment Oil and beauty editors’ favourite, the Perfect Cleanse Nourishing Oil.
You may already be familiar with the Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash; it receives rave reviews for its non-abrasive exfoliating action and fast, glow-giving results. A powder that fizzes into an effervescent kind of paste when you add water, it uses enzymes to get rid of dead skin cells on the surface and leave skin looking new and glowing. The new Gentle treatment wash has the same brightening effect but is (as the name suggests) more gentle, making it suitable for all skin types, but especially sensitive. Not only is it an excellent exfoliating option for people with sensitive skin, it makes an ideal “starter” treatment for people who have yet to try enzyme peels and masks and so on and want to “dip their toe” into the exfoliating waters.
The Fizzy Wash is a quick and easy way to brighten up dull skin – for me, it’s the perfect morning wash because it cleanses efficiently but also smooths and preps the skin ready for the rest of your beauty routine. The fizziness (you pour a little powder into your hand and add water to form a fizzy paste) also appeals to me greatly, in a “Berocca-for-your-Face” kind of way. I also love the word “fizzy”, there’s something fun and almost childish about it, but I suppose that’s by-the-by…
As you’ll know, unless you’ve been hiding from me (don’t blame you, to be honest, I do tend to harp on a bit), my skin has been a bit dry and tight and sensitive since pregnancy. There are a lot of products that I’ve had to temporarily shelve because they are just on the wrong side of “tingle” or they leave my face too tight. Not so with the NUDE Gentle Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash; it does a thorough job of skin-sloughing but leaves my skin nicely supple and fresh. No uncomfortable tightness. Perhaps due to the various oils (acai berry, coconut, Inca gold) incorporated into the formula, but maybe because it’s just a very lovely, finely-tuned little product that doesn’t upset the balance. It’s a great bridge between cleanser and treatment when you don’t have time for a mask or just want something extra from your face washing session.
I have FIFTEEN bottles of this delectable Fizzy Wash to giveaway* – each one worth £38.
