ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Nuance Salma Hayek Skincare

If you haven’t looked at your local drugstore for your daily skincare needs, look again.  One brand worth looking into is Nuance Salma Hayek.  Nuance Salma Hayek products contain exotic and natural ingredients using formulations based on ancient beauty secrets and advanced science.

Style: "RUVEN_09"

Salma Hayek was inspired to create the line  based  on Tepezcohuite,  an ingredient used to treat burn victims in Mexico. Hayek also wanted  to give women access to products that deliver great results without breaking the bank.  A couple of months ago I started using a few of the products from the line:

AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Eye Treatment

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • Tepezcohuite helps tone skin and provides antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, conditioning and smoothing benefits
  • Vitamins A, C and E firm skin and help visibly reduce wrinkles
  • Licorice Extract helps prevent hyper-pigmentation and brightens skin
  • Babassu Nut Butter offers soothing and emollient properties
  • Watermelon, Apple, and Lentil Fruit Extract serve as naturally potent antioxidants to smooth and even skin tone
  • Palmitoyl-Tripeptide helps condition skin and improve collagen production
  • A unique a blend of Passion Fruit, Acai and Rice Bran provides antioxidant protection to soothe, hydrate and firm

If you’ve never used an eye cream, this is a good place to start.  This eye cream feels great going on the eye area, especially if stored in the refrigerator. At the moment, my main concern with my eye area is keeping it moisturized and preventing puffiness. $19.99

AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Lotion

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • Tepezcohuite helps tone skin and provides antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, conditioning and smoothing benefits
  • Vitamins A, C and E firm skin and help visibly reduce wrinkles
  • Licorice Extract helps prevent hyper-pigmentation and brightens skin
  • Algae, Watermelon, Apple, and Lentil Fruit Extract serve as naturally potent antioxidants to smooth and even skin tone
  • Palmitoyl-Tripeptide helps condition skin and improve collagen production
  • Silicone polymers provide silky, soft application for an even complexion

This is my favorite product in the line.  I have oily skin and this lotion simply disappears into my skin leaving it feeling hydrated and refreshed. Used in conjunction with the renewed Radiance Dark Spot Corrector, there was a noticeable brightening of my skin but less brightening of spots caused by scarring and hyper-pigmentation. I used both products for just over a month. $19.99

Nuance Salma Hayek

Renewed Radiance Dark Spot Corrector

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • Natural Licorice Extract helps renew brightness and even skintone
  • Caffeine invigorates the skin for a brighter, more radiant complexion
  • Advanced Lightening Technology targets excess melanin to help reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots and acne marks
  • Visible results have been proven in as little as 2 weeks; 32% of women noticed overall brightness in 28 days; 38% of women saw a reduction in the appearance of dark spots in 4 weeks

This products works rather slowly.  It brightens the face overall but is less effective on dark spots. $19.99

Renewed Radiance Brightening BB Cream with SPF 30

Key Ingredients and Benefits

  • An advanced Ceramide and Peptide complex works deep within the layers of the skin to provide anti-aging and wrinkle-smoothing effects, stimulate cell production, and repair damage
  • Effective emollients help prevent dryness occurring from sun exposure
  • Advanced peptides provide wrinkle smoothing benefits, while improving the skin’s integrity
  • Antioxidant vitamins C and E condition, brighten and guard skin against free radical damage
  • Vitamins and SPF 30 help protect skin from environmental aggressors and harmful sun damage
  • Available in two shades: Light/Medium, medium/deep

I tried the medium/deep and it was a little too light for me.  However, since it has such amazing benefits I decided to add a little of my foundation to it to bring it up a couple of shades, this worked like a dream.  I got a light/ medium coverage for everyday wear but I can also layer my foundation over it when I want fuller coverage. $14.99

    There are no CVS locations in the state of Oregon. Is there a web location or other pharmacy, such as Target, Walmart, etc. carrying these Nuance products? Thanks.

  2. Christene Carr Christene says:

    Hi Leslie, Thanks for stopping by. The products are available on CVS.com.

    I have been using the am and pm lotion plus the acne treatment moisturizer, I am in my late 50′s and still have problems with break outs. Was in CVS buying something else and saw these products. Cannot believe how much I like them for drug store find. Been using for almost a month and can tell a difference already. Went back and bought eye cream and cleanser. Thanks Salma a product that doesn’t break the bank and works!

  4. Christene Carr Christene says:

    Thanks for your comment, Becky. The products are really very good.

  5. Adrienne says:

    I recently bought Nuance Anti-agingsuper serum concentrate. This is my question. Is it suppose to be very watery? It is hard to put a small amount on my finger tips because it seems to run off quickly.

    Thank you for responding to my question, Adrienne

    just wanted to offer my impression of her hair care products. I have very curly hair, pretty much corkscrew. I have used her sea spray product, and I LOVE it! it is terrific. it holds the curl and prevents frizziness. i’m really surprised how good it is. I have also used the leave-in curl product but there was something in it that caused an allergic reaction. disappointing because I liked the product! don’t know how they are formulated but her curl products are terrific. looking forward to trying her skin care line.

    Hi Adrienne, Thanks for stopping by! When I used the serum the consistency was a little thin as well. I pumped it into my palm, rub my hands together then pressed it into my skin. It really helps to boost moisture and is light enough for use in really hot/humid weather. Hope this helps.

  8. Christene Carr Christene says:

    Hi Marie, thanks for your comment! I haven’t tried the hair care products as yet but I am looking forward to getting into them. I have super coarse natural hair that looks like an afro, if her hair care products works for me I will be BEYOND impressed. Sorry to hear you had a reaction to the LIC…hate when that happens, especially when it’s a product that works.
    I just got some of her firming skincare products that I’ll be working into my routine very soon. Stay tuned for a review!
