When you are traveling, one thing you notice are the people. Now, I’ve never been to Paris, or anywhere in France for that matter, so I can’t speak from experience, but, there seems to be a thought (*at least here in America, I think) that French people smell bad. I’m not saying yay or nay on this, however, if most French folks wear Nuxe Tonific Deodorant then, yes, ohlordhavemercy, YES, they stink.
I say this based on my own experience. I was given some Nuxe Tonific Deodorant as part of a Christmas packet of lovely French treats. (*I had specifically requested this, btw, as I was *stillam* looking for a non-itchy/non-annoying deo). Anyway, I decided to try it out soon after – middle of winter, mind you. All was good in the AM’s. No stickiness, no irritation – nothing bad going on. Then, BAM – after lunch – holdmebabyjesus – I stunk. And not in the “hmm, i think i caught the merest hint of an odor” but in a “oh lord, if *I* can smell this, surely everyone around in a 30yd radius can, too” kind of way. This is NOT what I expected from a “24hr Protection” product.
I gave it the benefit of the doubt & tried it a couple of more days, but, it continued to act like a light switch was flipped and just stop working on me, so, clearly my body chemistry wasn’t ideal for this. At least now I know, right? But, that’s not to say that all Nuxe products aren’t that effective. They have *such* a broad range of skin caring products that one product misstep did not turn me off. In fact, I quite like their Micellar Cleansing Water with 3 Roses as a gentle way to clean my face – soothing, without any burning or itching.
One of Nuxe’s other bestsellers is their Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil. It’s a blend of 6 Precious Plant Oils (Borage, St Johnswort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, Macadamia) that is able to be used on the face, body AND hair – a real multi-tasking product, which is beneficial as it runs around $45USD for 100ml/3.3oz.
Like any place you visit, you will find people you like to be around and some you try to avoid (*cough*reading maps out loud across the room*cough*), such is the case with the Nuxe brand. Have you ever had chance to try this brand? If you have, I’m curious what you tried and what you liked/didn’t like, so, be sure and let me know.
