We’re all used to seeing “natural” skincare lines these days, so the launch of yet another one isn’t usually a big news day. However, Nude skincare stood out from the crowd when they launched their line last year. The company was founded by London-based Irishman Bryan Meehan and Ali Hewson is also involved as an investor and inspiration for the line. Based on natural ingredients (where possible organic) and free from chemicals, Nude’s products immediately started to garner rave reviews for their efficacy and the results they produced.
Using pre- and probiotics to help protect the skin’s barrier function and milk peptides to boost collagen production in the skin, products such as the Advanced Smoothing Complex offered visible anti-ageing effects from a natural product. Good news for those of us who like the idea of natural skincare, but also want to see results when we spend our hard-earned cash.
Prices aren’t cheap, as you’d expect, which is why I was delighted to see that Nude are very generous with samples – I emailed them a while back to ask about the possibility of obtaining trial sizes and they immediately replied that they could send samples of the products I was interested in. Having tried a few, the Advanced Smoothing Complex stood out as a star product to me, and I have just ordered a full size. I’ve also requested some more samples this time and they have very obligingly sent them too.
At present Nude is only available online to the Irish consumer, though it’s in Harvey Nichols, Space NK and Selfridges in the UK.
