I still haven’t quite forgiven Nude Skincare for changing the formula of their facial oil.. now ProGenius. However, after months and months of being quiet, Nude is back with a bang. The range is based around omegas and their website, which I’ll list below, is really good at explaining why skin responds so well to them, so I’ll leave that bit to the experts. Suffice to say that the Overnight Repair Mask is a thing of wonder. I’ve used it over a few nights now, and, bearing in mind the central heating is well and truly on, have woken with properly hydrated skin that feels like silk. I’m definitely a convert for dry days, and actually fast-forwarding to too-much-sun days which I think it would be stellar at adding back the missing hydration.
One of the key components of the new formulas (omegas were very much a part of the ‘old’ Nude as well) is probiotic. I can’t really get my head around this as having any seriously tangible benefits – the omegas will do far more. I expect a million skin experts will disagree, but it’s just that probiotics don’t resonate with me – I don’t really care if skin care has probiotic as an ingredient or not.
Nude was founded by Bryan Meehan and Ali Hewson, and subsequently sold to LVMH. On the plus, it’s now got all the technology and funds needed to progress as a serious skin care brand, but on the minus, I rather liked it as an indi brand, of which we have too few. Nude Skincare is a lovely range – it will tick all the boxes of giving you seriously softer and better hydrated skin and if you have skin that responds well to oils, then the chances are that you will love ProGenius (£58). Overnight Repair doesn’t seem to have launched yet, but I’d definitely recommend it as a beauty cupboard must-have. The products are on a SpaceNK exclusive HERE.
