Hello there.

It's nice to meet you.

I'm Jessica.

Once upon a time, I wrote a lot on this blog.

Now, not so much. But I haven't quite gotten around to totally delete it from the internet just yet. So, here it remains, collecting dust. 

So if you've ended up here, hello and welcome. I still tweet from time to time and pin (see above) and if you want to see what I do, click on the giant box below that says VIEW MY WORK.

TTFN, y'all.

TRIED AND TESTED | Nude Skincare Advanced Cellular Renewal Serum

I'VE HAD a bottle of this stuff on my bathroom shelf for quite a while, and I've been using it regularly. The texture is slightly watery. The color is opaque white. It has a slight fragrance, almost like powdery clean laundry. It's a bit slippy and feels nice going on although I needed a bit extra. It sinks it pretty rapidly and, unlike some other serums, doesn't leave a sticky film.

THE CLAIM

"With the highest concentration of Probiotic Technology in the NUDE range, this breakthrough serum uses three bio-available technologies proven to help the skin repair itself.

ADVANCED PROBIOTC TECHNOLOGY
NUDE’s Advanced Probiotic Technology repairs cellular damage and corrects ageing. 
Clinically proven to:
• 70% increase in cellular renewal
• 50% reduction in cellular damage
• 35% decrease in irritation

BIOACTIVE PEPTIDES
Powerful Bioactive Peptides help stimulate Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Fibronectin production, restructuring the cellular matrix to firm the skin and reduce the depth of wrinkles.

COMPLETE HYALURONIC ACID SYSTEM
NUDE has created a unique three way system to optimise Hyaluronic Acid within the skin
• A concentrated dose of Hyaluronic Acid instantly plumps and smoothes
• Bioactive Peptides boost natural synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid"

THE DOSAGE

For someone with perennially dehydrated skin the recommended dosage of 3 to 4 drops wasn't enough. I needed about double that to cover my face, neck and decolletage. 

MY RESULTS

Well, I think I started using it at the wrong time. My skin is schizophrenic during the winter. It flakes off. It peels. It turns red. It gets inflamed.

If I didn't know this post was about the state of my complexion, I'd think someone was describing the symptoms of an uncomfortable STD.

Nope.

It's what winter does to MY FACE.

So I'm sad to say I didn't see much of a difference in my skin. If anything, I seemed to have slightly heightened irritation in the places that my skin flares up during the winter (forehead, around the temples and cheekbones in a C-shape around my eye). But, then again, only very few things do work on my skin during the winter. Very. Few. And one of them is a triple-antibiotic cream.

From the sound of the other reviews, if you don't have problem skin like mine, it's a pretty brilliant product. My skin is fickle.

FOLLOW UP

I'm going to save the second half of the bottle and give it a go when the temperature rises above 45 and the air's not bone dry.

VERDICT

Erm, I'm not comfortable saying... okay, okay. For me, right now, it's not a must-have. But I really really want it to be someday. Just not today.
