Glambox ME decided to send us a goodie box. Thank you guys! We give you a layperson’s review on some of it’s content!

Let’s start with the Nuxe Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid (Cream). First of all, it smells just fantastic. What with the Passionflower and Poppy Flower extracts. What it does, we couldn’t tell with the time and product restraint. We can tell you what it aims to do. It aims to:

–Diminish wrinkles and fine lines

–Plum the skin up and,

–Restore youthful radiance to the skin.

All this with flower extracts that Nuxe calls ‘Floral Energy’. We love that phrase.

Nuxe is sold in leading pharmacies across the Middle East.

The next product needs no introduction. It’s a popular skincare brand, sold off the counters in supermarkets, pharmacies and groceries. We are talking about brand Neutrogena. We received the Neutrogena Invigorating Daily Scrub, for all skin types. I felt that it was a bit harsh for daily use though. Perhaps, that is because I have sensitive skin. So, I just put on a little and scrubbed gently. I would recommend it for someone with oily to combination skin maybe a few days of the week, for those with sensitive skins, that is. It feels kinds weird going against what a skincare giant says for a product — that it is a daily scrub — after many months of research by maybe tons of people, to telling you not to use it daily!

Neutrogena is available at hypermarkets, pharmacies and supermarkets across the UAE.

The last product that I want to talk about is Addicted to Soap. We loved the heart shape, the transparent nature of the soap and the color red. Retailing at AED 35 at Glamstore, I think that is a heavy price to pay to keep clean, especially because it dissolves (yes dissolves) so quickly. It’s nice in that it melts into your body easily, because you get he feeling that it is perhaps made of natural ingredients, that is why it fades away so fast. But really, AED 35? I barely used it for a few days. If I could purchase a pack of 5 in that amount, I’m sold, because I really liked the product.
