Have you heard of the brand Nimue? I hadn’t until this summer when I visited my local salon for a much needed facial. At the time my skin was in really bad condition and had broken out in an acne-like spot frenzy! To help my red, bumpy complexion my lovely therapist Clare gave me a few samples, one being the Nimue Purifier among other Elemis products that I have also fallen for.
After applying the purifier in a thin layer over the affected spotty area of a night for two weeks, I noticed a definite change. My acne spots were clearing up and my skin regaining its smooth complexion once again (Obvs the facial helped too!)
I did a bit of research on the brand and they are a primary leader in skin technology, mainly found in leading skin care salons and are renowned for their expert understanding of skincare and effective treatments. And boy do they know their stuff!
So two weeks ago when my skin once again broke out and decided to form a dot-to-dot game on my face - and this was before I'd even started back at uni may I add - my only thought to combat it was “I need Nimue!” (not to be mistaken by Nemo people). Off to my salon I went as I was struggling to find an online store to purchase from.
The 50ml pot cost me £30.75 which is fairly steep but what can I say, I was desperate and didn’t know where else to turn! It instructs that for occasional breakouts: apply sparingly to clean, dry skin at night and on spots during the day, and for chronic breakouts (me!): apply sparingly to clean, dry skin night and day.
It comes with a little spatula and you literally need the smallest amount, it spreads a long way. It has quite a strong medicinal fragrance but doesn’t feel harsh on my skin in the slightest. It is light and absorbs quickly so you could easily wear it under make-up.
I've been using it day and night for two weeks now and it has made a real difference. I'm going to keep with it as I believe it really helps me and hopefully once this horrid batch of spots are combatted, using this will help keep them at bay.
My local salon offers Nimue Rejuvenation facials which I may invest in to discover more products from the range. If you suffer with acne or the occasional breakout however, I really truly recommend this.
I know what will be on my Christmas list this year! What spot treatments do you swear by?
