It’s been a while (months) since I started using Nuxe Splendieuse Serum for dark spots so it was time to write my opinion about it.
Nowadays dark spots are one of the most common problems, when it comes to beauty and skincare.
The shelves of beauty stores are full of products that are supposed to solve this problem. Unfortunately many of them don’t work. Or, at least, they don’t do wonders as they promise.
As I wrote time ago I have some dark spots caused by what a dermatologist called “misfortune”. The misfortune was probably that when I was an irresponsible teenager I used to catch a lot of sun with SPF 2 (exactly, 2!) and I got sunburnts at least a couple of times. And, as a beautician told me, skin has memory so dark spots appeared where I sunburnt. Furthermore, as always happens, stress doesn’t help.
Being a proved beauty junkie, I always look for new products and Nuxe Splendieuse Serum was recently arrived in stores.
I like Nuxe products so I bought Splendieuse without even trying a sample, which is something I rarely do (I made another exception for this great eye cream). I admit I expected good results, at the end of the day Nuxe never disappointed me. Unfortunately, even if Nuxe claims that results can be already visible after 2 weeks, I didn’t notice an-y-thing.
Honestly, I almost left this serum unused on my shelf.
I stopped using it for a while because I was really disappointed. Not only the spots were still there, but my skin looked also a bit lackluster! So I gave up using it for a couple of weeks, maybe three. Then I decided to use it because I’m not a waster anymore or at least I’m working on this bad habit of opening products and not finishing them. And so, I gave Nuxe Splendieuse another chance.
After using it regularly for about 8/9 weeks I started to see some improvement. My skin looked evener. But the dark spots were still there. So, no miracle, no magic, nothing particularly impressive happened.
In conclusion, would I recommend Nuxe Splendieuse Serum?
No, I wouldn’t. I’ve almost finished it and I’m not going to buy it again. Considering that dimethicone is among its main ingredients, I suspect that the improvement I see is just temporary.
Dimethicone is very used in cosmetics, and its use is controversial, because it makes your skin look good but it doesn’t moisturize and nourish it. Consequently, skin looks better but it’s not actually better. That’s why women who banned dimethicone and other silicones from their beauty routine affirm that at the beginning their skin was drier than usual.
I try to use beauty products with a good inci, but when it comes to dark spots I tend to make exceptions, hoping in a miracle 🙂
I usually avoid to review products I don’t like but, considering that I’ve often bought (or not bought) beauty products after reading reviews on other blogs, I thought this could help those of you who are fighting against dark spots. I hope you’ll find my review usefull.
