Nude Skincare has pretty much rocked my socks since I first fell in love with their Cleansing Oil, technology, and safe-yet-effective philosophy. I gave a shout out to their Advanced Smoothing Complex in my Cleansing Oil review, but didn’t really understand how cool it was at the time to write about it in depth.
Nude has managed to make some of the pickiest Beauty Editors in the world fall in love with their collection which has received some high praise in the press since their launch. Because 70% of products used topically end up being absorbed into your bloodstream, leaving out ingredients they deem toxic, and downright irritating to the skin (which accelerates skin aging), is a huge part of their mission. For years, they perfected a concise line of skincare where nature meets technology to resoundingly effective results.
I’m always trying out new products to review, but 80% of what I use on a daily basis is now Nude, which I’ve been slowly purchasing to replace every category of skincare I own.
Nightly, over clean skin and under my moisturizer, I pat 1 pump of Advanced Smoothing Complex over my face for its combination of vitamins, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Not only does it relax wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and increase cell turnover, but it also carefully combines ingredients that aren’t irritating making it easier for the good stuff to be absorbed into your skin’s calm environment.
It’s truly a one-size-fits-all product blanketing all skin types with a powerful combination of protection and nutrients. If you’re going to try just one product from Nude, let it be this one. The others will soon follow.
