Merveillance LIFT, the new anti-ageing skincare range by French favourite, NUXE, is the wrinkle-firming correction routine you’ve been waiting for.
The collection consists of five anti-ageing skincare products infused with a micro-algae oil and has been developed in accordance with NUXE’s clean beauty commitments (vegan, silicone-free formulas containing a minimum of 96% natural-origin ingredients).
The star ingredient
For Merveillance LIFT, NUXE chose chlorella vulgaris, a microscopic fresh water green algae that first appeared on Earth 2.5 billion years ago, for this innovative new range. It has survived to the present day thanks to its amazing resistance, which it owes to a membrane rich in active molecules that is so impenetrable that not even viruses can pass through.
It has an exceptional ability to regenerate and gives birth to four new cells every day.
This micro-algae is cultivated in Brittany and placed in an extractor, which, by means of a high-tech process, results in a pure, stable micro-algae oil extract concentrated in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants.
A single drop of this oil contains the concentrated power of 4 billion micro-algae!
NUXE uses the power of this micro-algae oil to strengthen the interface between the dermis (the inner layer of the two main layers of skin) and epidermis (the outermost layers of the skin). This in-between area is known as dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ) and is a key area for skin youthfulness.
The ageing process, as well as our exposure to external aggressors result in the slackening of the dermal-epidermal junction, and collagen fibre density diminishes. Skin loses its fullness and firmness, and wrinkles begin to appear on the surface.
The micro-algae oil helps restore the wavy nature of the dermal-epidermal junction, improving the skin’s fullness and strengthening internal structures of the skin. On the surface, the skin appears smoother, fuller and seemingly more youthful.
The Merveillance LIFT range consists of:
NUXE Merveillance LIFT Firming Powdery Cream (R750.00)
Featuring a powdery texture for an instant filling effect, this moisturiser firms the skin and corrects wrinkles. Ideal for normal to combination skin, it creates a natural blur effect for a flawless finish.
NUXE Merveillance LIFT Firming Velvet Cream (R750.00)
This rich cream firms the skin and corrects wrinkles. Ideal for normal to dry skin, its enveloping texture provides instant suppleness and tone.
NUXE Merveillance LIFT Firming Activating Oil-Serum (R750.00)
This anti-ageing serum is a powerful concentrate with a 100% active texture. Just three drops are all you need for instantly smoother-looking, more supple and toned skin.
NUXE Merveillance LIFT Lift Eye Cream (R575.00)
Thanks to its natural-origin ‘blur-effect’ texture, this eye cream instantly fades wrinkles, puffiness and signs of fatigue for more youthful-looking eyes from the first application. The eye contour area appears firmer and eyelids seem lifted.
NUXE Merveillance LIFT Concentrated Night Cream (R750.00)
A real anti-ageing concentrate, this night cream reveals rested and smoother skin, as if you had slept for an extra two hours. In the morning, the skin is recharged with energy.
In addition to the powerful anti-ageing action of each product in the range, the formulas are also real sensorial treasures with incredible active textures and an irresistible scent, thanks to a subtle bouquet of freesia and magnolia on a base of white musk.
How to use Merveillance LIFT
Step 1: Firm your skin with the Firming Activating Oil-Serum. Just 3 drops in the morning and/or evening are all you need: warm them in your hands and apply over your entire face in upward strokes, from the centre of your face towards the outer contours.
Step 2 : Make your eyes look wider with the Lift Eye Cream. Apply to the eye contour area, from the centre towards the temples. For a wider-eyed effect, use slow and deep movements above your eyelids, working upwards. Relax the lion’s wrinkle using upward smoothing strokes.
Step 3 : In the morning, smooth your face with your Firming face cream: the Firming Powdery Cream for normal to combination skin or the Firming Velvet Cream for normal to dry skin. In the evening, apply the Concentrated Night Cream. Alternate smoothing movements with gentle pinches, focusing in particular on facial contours and wrinkles to be corrected.
