Easter Gift Guide From Nu Skin And Competition

Sometimes giving mum an Easter egg is all a bit of the same thing that you do all year round. So what about giving her something different? How about a gift of  youth? Your mum is special to you and lets face it - she deserves way more than just an egg. Mums do so much for you, sometimes its just the fact that they are there to listen. What ever the reason, I want to highlight some amazing gifts for her from Nu Skin, just for something different this year.

Nu Skin are a brand from Denmark and they provide you with some innovative personal care products with ingredients that are full of goodness for your ageing skin. Our skin starts ageing in our twenties, so we have to start looking after it from an early age. Nu Skin offer a wide range of products from cosmetics, to essential oils and from serums to creams. As a mum myself, I recently received a package from Nu Skin to try out for myself. This is what we got in the package.

The Nu Colour Curling Wand

This mascara is black and it has a curved wand that will help to add volume to your eye lashes, with the volume I actually think it makes them look longer too as you can see from the picture below. The mascara isn't 'gluggy' so it is smooth and goes on to your lashes smoothly. It isn't too thick and clumpy, so it feel light to wear on your eyes. I have been using this mascara for about a year and even though I work for Superdrug, I do find myself recommending this to customers who are looking for this kind of mascara.

This mascara gives you longer, thicker and amazing eyelashes, as you can see from the picture my lashes are very thin and light so I need all the help I can get with a mascara. I dont like the ones that you wear and they are so thick, that you can see the clumps at the end of your lashes. You get none of that with this mascara and in face it is part of my everyday make up bag. I have a more detailed blog post here, and you can find it at for £24.76

Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask

This is a much talked about face mask, everyone wants to try it because it works. It is a clay mask that contains sea botanical s that will draw out all of the impurities of your skin. apply it to your face and body and then simply rinse off for soft skin. This has been the most talked about face mask of social media recently because it leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed. Its suitable for all skin types and as mine is sensitive, it is nice to find a product that doesn't irritate me. It is priced at £25.28 from Nu Skin

The AgeLoc Tru Face Essence Ultra

These are little capsules of heaven that you apply to your face to target the source of visible ageing in your skin. not only does it help to protect your face from the free radicals that you have to deal with in everyday life. But they also help to keep your face firm and contoured to give you a more youthful look. As I find myself hitting mid life, I am using these on an everyday basis to maintain the firmness and keep the wrinkles at bay. I think I look good for someone of 44 years old.  You open one of the capsules and gently squeeze two or three drops directly onto the areas of most concern and then apply the remaining product to the entire face and neck. There is enough of the AgeLoc Tru Face Essence Ultra to use on one face application, thats the best thing about the capsules - you get the measured amount. You do this once in the morning and once at night. I have a more detailed review here. They are priced at £186.98 from Nu Skin.

Liquid Body Lufra

Everybody should exfoliate, sometimes its hard to find the time of day to do it, but it really is important because it gets rid of all of the dead skin cells on top of your skin and gives you a much smoother skin surface. If you are going out for the night then, exfoliating will help to get your skin in tip top condition. If you are going to use a fake tanning lotion, then you need to exfoliate, because that's the only way that you will get a smooth enough surface for a good application. This Liquid Body Lufra is made with some natural ingredients like walnut powder as a natural exfoliant and aloe vera for its moisturising benefit. This smells of mint and it will also help to awaken your skin, making it feel so much fresher. All you need to do it use it a couple of times a week in the bath or shower and use it all over your body.When you are dry, finish off with a moisturiser like the one we are highlighting next. The Liquid Body Lufra is available for a really good price of £13.67 from Nu Skin.

Perennial Body Moisturiser

This is perfect for using after the Liquid Body Lufra. It is an moisturiser that will help fight against the cold, windy weather. Its been a long harsh winter this year, so this is perfect to get your body back in to shape for the summer. I have used body moisturisers in the past and I don't like the greasy after feeling that I am left with so because this Kukui nut oil and meadowfoam seed oil, it won't feel greasy. The Perennial Moisturiser is soothing with the help from the Garcinia indica (kokum) seed butter. It is fragrance free so you won't find it irritates your body. You simply apply all over your body, Its quite thick - almost like a body butter, so you don't use too much. It seems to go a long way making it great value for money! The Perennial Body Moisturiser is available from Nu Skin for £26.44.

Hopefully you will find something here for mums of all ages, we have high lighted a wide range of budgets and ages. Maybe you want to treat yourself. I have used Nu Skin for about 2 years now and I really do like their products. There really is something for everyone.
