Fantastic Find Friday – Salma Hayek’s Nuance Collection

One of the things I loved about my trip to BlogHer 11 was meeting up with the various brands and hearing the stories behind some of the product lines.  One Highlight in Particular was the CVS Luncheosn where, Along with Lori and Leah and various other incredible women, we learned more about Salma Hayek’s New line Nuance – Only Available at CVS.

Now, before I even tried any of the products, I was captivated by the story behind them:

“Salma Hayek was inspired by Hayek’s grandmother, a cosmetologist who developed her own homemade beauty remedies.  An embodiment of her rich family heritage, the products in the Nuance Salma Hayek line represent the fusion of advanced, proprietary formulations and personal beauty rituals passed down from generations.”

Ok, Let’s be honest.  Salma Hayek, is unbelievably 45.  She is GORGEOUS and real.  In short, I’d gladly take advice from her when it comes to looking good.

  • Nuance Salma Hayek Skincare: Nuance Salma Hayek Skincare products are specially formulated with natural fruit extracts and essential oils to address multiple skincare concerns like aging, loss of hydration, and uneven tone and texture.
  • Nuance Salma Hayek Cosmetics: Nuance Salma Hayek Cosmetics include a full line of products for face, eyes and lips in a palette of stunning shades. Advanced technology and fine ingredients create beautiful, endless, customized looks.
  • Nuance Salma Hayek Haircare: Nuance Salma Hayek Haircare products address the needs of all hair types with formulations for fine hair, dry hair and chemically treated hair. The line includes treatments that nourish, style and help protect for all-day, healthy-looking hair.
  • Nuance Salma Hayek Body: Nuance Salma Hayek Body treatments combine nourishing botanicals and natural fruit extracts to help create more youthful, hydrated and radiant-looking skin.
I’ll admit that I have not yet tried all of the samples yet, but I did start using the Dual Phase Body oil and am HOOKED! Seriously Hooked…. my skin feels softer and definitely more moisturized.  My mom is a fan of applying regular old baby oil after her shower and I see 2 issues with that –
  1.  I end up spilling baby oil everywhere… not good.  This comes in a handy spritzer bottle so no spillage
  2.  I really don’t want to smell like a “baby”  – It (like the other samples I received) smells divine
Now, I can’t very well ask you all to come feel my skin, so you’ll have to take my word for it.  IT is wonderful.  Better yet, head down to your local CVS Pharmacy and pick up a bottle for yourself.  Better still – pick up two because right now, it is Buy one Get one Free (at least at my local store) with your CVS card.
More about this fantastic find:
With coconut oil & passion fruit oil. More enriched than a lotion, this light oil leaves skin feeling
 silky, soft and supple. My line is inspired by my grandmother, who dedicated her life to keeping women beautiful. My products are designed to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty, and make my grandmother proud. – Salma. Jojoba Dual Phase Body Oil. Jojoba Oil helps soften and moisturize skin. Coconut oil is a nourishing and conditioning agent that helps reveal smoother skin with a healthier shine. Passion fruit oil helps soothe skin. Paraben free. Not tested on animals.

I’ve also been using the Nuance Mineral Cheek Trio in Mauve and it even comes with instructions on how to apply so even I can look put together and a little less “off kilter”.  I can’t recommend it enough!

It comes complete with a cheek color, highlighter, and contour color and honestly, I never knew what to do with them which is probably why I have a dozen or so blush colors that are just WRONG on so many levels for my skin.  When I saw the blush in my bag that was my first thought too, but it is perfect.

In short, Hayek has succeeded in developing a line of beauty products that are NOT tested on animals, and meet the needs

Again, don’t take my word for it, head on down to your local CVS Store and check them out yourself. You’ll be glad you did!

    I would LOVE try this product but CVS is not in the state of Washington. Is there a chance to purchase on-line?
