The best thing about being a beauty editor is that I get to try some seriously great skincare. For the past three weeks, I’ve been putting the brand new NUXE Merveillance LIFT range to test.

The range is designed for skin 35+ and promises to lift, firm and minimise the appearance of wrinkles.

What piqued my interest with this range is that one of the key ingredients is micro-algae oil. Now, for those not in the know, algae, when used in skincare, is a great, albeit it VERY expensive ingredient. The reason is because it’s difficult to extract while preserving its integrity.

The algae used in the Merveillance LIFT range is called chlorella vulgaris, an ancient strain with an exceptional regeneration capability. It owes its amazing resistance to a membrane rich in active molecules that is so impenetrable, not even viruses can pass through. As mentioned, it has an exceptional ability to regenerate and gives birth to 4 new cells daily.

The chlorella micro algae used in the range are cultivated in France in bioreactors, which optimize cultivation and guarantee consistent quality.

They’re then placed in an extractor crossed by a flow of superficial carbon dioxide, which is charged with the molecules present in the micro-algae membrane. The result is a pure, stable micro-algae oil extract concentrated in fatty acids and natural antioxidants.

A single drop of the oil contains the concentrated power of 4 billion micro-algae.

NUXE uses the powers of the micro-algae oil in this range to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction – the interface between the dermis and epidermis – a key area for skin youthfulness. In addition to allowing optimum exchanges of nutrients between these two layers, it also ensures visibly younger-looking and firmer skin.

Okay, science lesson over – but I thought it important to tell you about it, so you get an idea of just how precious algae is as ingredient is in skincare.

Another factor I love about this range is that all the products are Vegan, silicone-free and contain a maximum of 96% natural-origin ingredients.

Now let’s discover the range. There are three moisturisers, a magnificent and very unique oil-serum and an eye cream.

Here’s the low-down on each:

Merveillance LIFT Firming Powdery Cream R750 – BUY

This cream has a powdery texture for an instant filling and blurring effect, ensuring a flawless finish. It works to firm the skin and correct wrinkles and is infused with the ultra-corrective Micro-Algae oil. It is best suited to normal and combination skin types.

Merveillance LIFT Firming Velvet Cream R750 – BUY

This is my choice for day as I have a drier skin type. The formula works to correct wrinkles and leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated and supple. It also has a sublime texture that envelops the skin. Like the Powder Cream, it too is infused with the ultra-corrective Micro-Algae oil.

Merveillance Lift Firming Activating Oil-Serum R750 – BUY

I’m obsessed with this oil-serum and love everything about it – from the packaging to the way it applies and feels on the skin. It has a very subtle, comforting scent and works to nourish and tone the skin. I use it twice a day, before applying the day / night creams. All one needs of this precious oil is 3 drops, which you warm between your fingertips, then press onto the face.

All skin types can use this as it has a lovely non-greasy or sticky oil texture.

Merveillance Lift Eye Cream R575 – BUY

I feel like I’ve been having such a great run with eye creams! From being a “I don’t use an eye cream” gal for years, I’ve no become that, “I’m mildly obsessed with eye cream” woman. This one is just gorgeous. It has an almost powdery (but hydrating) texture and gives a blurring effect that instantly fades wrinkles and signs of fatigue.

Merveillance Lift Concentrated Night Cream R750 – BUY

A treat to use. This night cream nourishes the skin and upon waking, gives the skin a rested “I’ve slept in for two extra hours” look. It too contains the precious ultra-corrective Micro-Algae oil.
