NUXE  Merveillance Expert Eye Contour & Bioderma Restorative Lip Balm: REVIEW

January 25, 2019

Eyes and lips always need  extra TLC at this time of year and these two tubes came to the rescue for moisture and nourishment; here's my take on NUXE  Merveillance Expert Eye Contour and Bioderma Atoderm Restorative Lip Balm:


NUXE  Merveillance Expert Eye Contour

Summer means time spent outdoors enjoying a beach life and staying up later as the evenings are gorgeously warm and sultry; come morning and I can see tell-tale signs of fatigue aka dark rings around my eyes from staying up later than intended. Caffeine does the job in keeping my energy levels going (I know we're living on the edge, lol), and as it is one of the ingredients found in NUXE  Merveillance Expert Eye Contour it must be good right?


Ingredients like caffeine reduces dark circles and puffiness, while Oléoactif®, an extract from silk tree bark and day lily, target the proteins in the skin (vimentin, elastin and collagen) which help with visible lines and loss of firmness. So yay, this eye cream gets my stamp of approval in helping with toning and firming and the lightweight consistency  sinks in easily and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes.

Bioderma Atoderm Restorative Lip Balm

I'm a huge fan of French brand, Bioderma with Bioderma Sensibio Micellaire H2O   my number one makeup remover! The Atoderm range is  for dry to very dry skin,  so again, as it's summer my skin needs all the moisture it can get.

Containing avocado and shea butter for moisture Bioderma Atoderm Restorative Lip Balm is also fragrance and paraben free. (Sometimes I think the more I put on my lips the more product I am needing, but we'll address this at another stage).
