by - 5:00 PM

Hello Dolls and Gents, 

I thought today I would do another Buy it or Leave it. I haven't done of these post since last year and I have a lot of products I have for you to talk out. We are going to talking about the NUDE Skincare line, and more specifically the Purify Balancing Moisturizer. 

I went to Sephora to find a moisturizer I can use in the morning and night that suitable for combination/oily skin type. The Sephora sale associate, recommend me this product to try. So, I decided to get a sample and try it out. If you would like to know my final thoughts on this product, then keep on reading. 


From the Sephora site :

Retail Price : $60 CAD for 1.3 oz 

It is a ultra-light hydrator that refines and balances oily to combination skin while delivering your daily dose of anti-aging ingredients. It was formulated with cinnamon,ginger, and burnet root balance oil production and purify skin, while omega 3 helps reduces redness and irritation. The n-probiotic active cell nutrients supports skin's natural process in producing its own ant-aging ingredients including collagen , hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. This purifying formula reveals a clear, calm and balance complexion. 

Suggest Usage: 

  • Use morning and night 
  • Using an upward motion, apply dime-sized amount to clean, dry face, neck and chest


I'm not a fan of this moisturizer. When I got the sample of this moisturizer, I was willing to pay the steep price tag for it, if it was good for my skin. Well, I was wrong. One thing to know about my skin, it that though I have combo/oily skin, my skin sometimes gets irritated. This moisturizer broke me out. I did not change anything in my routine beside my moisturizer. I broke out on my lower half of face, it looked like mini pimples that I have popped and lefts marks. The picture below, show you were this moisturizer broke me out. When I apply this moisturizer, it felt nice on the skin and it absorb quickly into my skin, which is perfect for combo/oily skin types. They recommend using a dime sized amount, I tried that, and I felt like my face was not moisturize.  The smell of the moisturizer smell like a hair product  I used to in my hair. It also suggest to use in an upward motion, for me that is like the weirdest and most uncomfortable way for me to apply my moisturizer. 

  • Nice Fragrance 
  • Absorbs quickly into skin 
  • Light-weight 
  • Gel-like
  • Irritated my skin 
  • Dime size is not enough 
  • High price tag 
  • Not enough moisture 
  • Tight feeling 
  • Dryness in less oily places on the face


Overall, I would leave this product. I do not think this product is made for me and I would leave it, but I am searching for the right moisturizer for my skin. Again, this may not happen to you, but this moisturizer and my natural body chemistry do not fit well together.
