Nuvosa Anti-Aging Skin Care Treatment Collection
Feb 22, 2013 by Harshleen
I’ve been test driving a few skincare products from a brand I was recently introduced to – Nuvosa skincare. Nuvosa’s product line includes the Reborn Wrinkle Shield Moisturizer, Deep Wrinkle Remedy Serum and Flawless Age Protection Toner that all feature a wide range of powerful anti-aging compounds, natural and organic vitamins and supplements that are proven to improve the skin.
Let’s start with the Flawless Age Protection Toner ($30) which is the first step in the Nuvosä system. First off, I really like the dispenser – just put a cotton pad on top and press down on the bottle’s applicator once or twice to wet the cotton with toner….so convenient to use without any mess or spill. The soothing, alcohol-free formula is 95% organic and minimizes pores while restoring your skin’s natural pH balance. It removes any remaining oil or dirt from skin after cleansing. Unlike most toners, Flawless is not only moisturizing, but it’s also rich in antioxidants to fight the daily barrage of free radical damage. DMAE is also included to provide extra skin firming power.
Ingredients in Flawless Age Protection Toner : Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Leaf Juice, Rosa damascena (Rose) Distillate, (Vaccinium Myrtillus (Organic Bilberry) Extract, Saccharum officinarum (Organic Sugar Cane) Extract, Acer Saccharinum (Organic Sugar Maple) Extract, Citrus auranium dulcis (Organic Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus medica limonum (Organic Lemon) Extract, Vaccinium macrocarpon (Organic Cranberry) Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), Vegetable Glycerin, Salix nigra (Black Willowbark) Extract, Polysorbate, Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Organic Blueberry) Fruit Extract
Deep Wrinkle Remedy Serum ($98) This potent anti-wrinkle formula has been scientifically formulated to reduce the appearance of sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles and to prevent any future damage. The ‘airless’ jar packaging of this product helps to protect it from contamination and keep the ingredients stable during use. Simply press the top of the container and the serum pops out….one pump is all you need for your face. The formula is lightweight and soaks in quickly. It has a subtle floral scent that dissipates soon after application. You can apply the serum in the morning before you put on makeup, at night before bed, or both. It is safe to use around eyes and lips for those stubborn age lines.
Ingredients in Deep Wrinkle Remedy Serum: Rosa damascena (Rose) Distillate, Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Juice, Vegetable Glycerin, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), Emulsifying Wax, Limnanthes alba (Meadowfoam Seed) Oil, Vaccinium myrtillus (Organic Bilberry) Extract, Saccharum officinarum (Organic Sugar Cane) Extract, Acer saccharinum (Organic Sugar Maple) Extract, Citrus auranium dulcis (Organic Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus medica limonum (Organic Lemon) Extract, Vaccinium macrocarpon (Organic Cranberry) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (Vitamin C), Phenoxyethanol, CoQ10, Beta Carotene (Pro Vitamin A), Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A), Alpha Lipoic Acid (DL- Thioctic Acid), dl-Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Daucus carota (Carrot) Oil, Lecithin, Xanthan Gum (Polysaccharide Gum), Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Organic Blueberry) Fruit Extract
Reborn Wrinkle Shield Moisturizer ($70) – Of all the three products, this is my favorite. Reborn, which is 91% organic, has a rich and creamy formula that’s intensely moisturizing and leaves my skin visibly hydrated and smoother. Just like the serum, a little goes a long way so start off small and add more as necessary. I have been using it only once at night as the final step in my skin care regimen but you can also use it in the morning depending on your skins needs.
Ingredients in Reborn Wrinkle Shield Moisturizer: Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice, Butyrospermun parkii (Organic Shea) Butter, Simmondsia chinensis (Organic Jojoba) Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Aspalathus lineans (Organic Rooibos Tea) Tincture, Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), Camellia sinensis (Organic Green Tea) Extract, MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Camellia sinensis (Organic White Tea) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Oenothers biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Salix nigra (Black Willow Bark) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Organic Usnea lichen Extract, Rosa mosqueta (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Citric Acid, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Organic Blueberry) Fruit Extract
Overall, I am quite pleased with Nuvosä skin care products. They contain a host of hydrating and truly effective anti-aging ingredients that can breathe new life into dry, aging skin. The set of all three products has an individual retail value of $198 but the Nuvosa website gives the price for trio as $149 or if you sign up for the Replenishment program, it will only cost you $49 for the trio and it will be sent to you every 60 days. You can cancel at any time. For more information, visit Nuvosa.comDisclosure: This review features a sample product sent for consideration by PR and reflects my honest opinion as always!
