When I recently attended the Anti-Ageing Show at Olympia ( why do we have to call it that, rather than follow Newby Hands lead and call it Age Proofing ? ) the stand that really stood out for me was the NuBo Beauty one. With beautiful visuals and a touch of alchemy and molecular chemistry thrown in as well, it really was the one to visit and learn more about this wonderful brand that goes further with every product or treatment that they create.
In the last month I have been using their improved SynErgetic Serum ( active formula ) and have to say that it is as potent, as it is heavenly smelling. Full of honey undertones and memories of flowery meadows it also smells of Damascus Rose and oranges ripening in the sunshine. The serum is dispensed with a pump that doses the correct amount of product-for me two pumps are enough to cover the face and the neck. It is a lovely, clear oil that is a synergetic blend of Arctic Lingonberry, Damascus Rose and innovative Pro-Vitamin C, which converts into pure vitamin C when it comes in contact with the warmth of your skin. It sinks in immediately and leaves behind a faint, feminine smell that makes you feel like a woman of leisure.
The serum helps to renew our skin’s lipid barrier and is good for red or irritated skin, while it also soothes and hydrates dry complexions and helps to restore the balance if your skin is oily or a combination one.
This product comes in a dark glass bottle so ingredients are safely protected from harmful sun rays but do make sure that the bottle stays out of heat and direct sunlight never-the-less. If you feel like you need some true pampering at the end of a day, then you can also massage this serum to your body, decollete and neck. It is also wonderful for nurturing your hair ends, as well as scenting your hair and making them glossy and lush. And if you feel particularly indulgent, distill a few drops into your bath and enjoy the rejuvenating aroma and the soft, baby-like feel of your skin.
What makes this specific product particularly intriguing is the fact that it fuses cutting-edge modern technology with the finest fractions of essential oils and bio-active antioxidants that really help our skin to feel moisturised, radiant ( apply it to you face and then look in the mirror in five to ten minutes and see if you notice a difference-for a good comparison apply to one side of the face and see the difference in the mirror, in good light ). Not being overly girly I love the smell of this product as well, with Rosa Damascene evoking memories of warmth, happiness and carefree summer holidays, even if it’s officially spring on the calendar now, yet it feels autumn like temperature wise.
Arctic Lingonberry which survives and thrives in very cold climate is your very rich source of Omega 3 and 6, for which your skin and body are always grateful, as it helps out bodies to boost our immune system and bring the inflammation process under control, naturally. If you add a high-tech Vitamin C composite, that not only brightens the skin ( I actually use NuBo Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser when I use this serum in the morning and NuBo Cell Dynamic Velvet Cleansing Cream in the evening ), but also stimulates collagen and elastin production, that really slows down as we age. To be honest, lately I prefer to use cleanser/serum/moisturiser of the same brand at a specific moment in time, as you are less likely to have a skin reaction if you mix potent products from different brands.
