|ProGenius Treatment Oil|
Have all your products been re-formulated?
Yes we have introduced a new range which reflects the same ingredients and values as before but with some improvements to fragrance, texture and packaging. In terms of performance, the new products are better than ever. We've introduced an incredible pioneering cell nutrient n-probiotic™ which stimulates the skin to produce its own anti-ageing ingredients. We also use a specific blend of omega oils throughout the range sourced from plant oils. The range is also now gluten free and the beautiful jasmine and ylang ylang fragrance is 100% natural and allergen free.
Are the products safe for vegans too?
Yes all our products are suitable for vegans except our Replenish Daily Moisturiser which contains beeswax.
My first question is has Progenius replaced the Replenishing night oil? And if so, what's the difference?
Yes you're absolutely right, ProGenius is the next generation of Replenishing Night Oil. Like Replenishing Night Oil, ProGenius is rich in omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, but this time we have sourced our oils from natural plant oils like borage, sea buckthorn, camelina and macadamia. You'll notice a few differences- better absorption, a bigger 30ml size so it lasts twice as long (and you can see when you are almost finished) and a greater concentration of omega 7 for extra skin nourishment. It also has a more subtle scent. You can use it in the morning or evening, and blended with your favourite moisturiser for an extra skin boost. We can't wait for you to try it, it's simply divine.
I'd like to know how ProGenius fits with using the serum?
We recommend you use your Cellular Renewal Serum followed by ProGenius. You can do this day and night. It's like giving your skin a balanced diet, first with probiotics and then with omega oils. Your skin will thank you for it!
Recently I have started suffering from adult acne. What can I use to help? I want anti-ageing benefits in my skincare too which makes looking for products quite tricky as they all seem to be heavier creams and oils which I don't want to use as they feel so dense on my skin
A very reasonable request in skincare we think! That’s why we have created the Purify range. It is specifically targeted to balance oily and combination skin and clear congestion. Start and end the day with Purify Cleansing Wash and Purify Toning Water. They effectively cleanse the skin without stripping, leaving skin clear and comfortable. Follow with Purify Daily Moisturiser. It not only contains the Purify actives of cinnamon bark and ginger root to balance and refine, but it also contains our pioneering n-probiotic which stimulates the skin to produce its own anti-ageing ingredients, including collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. It also contains softening omega 3 to soothe redness and irritation. The perfect balancing act for problematic skin.
Can you tell me if the perfect polish or miracle mask is best for a general exfoliation for sensitive skin, as I am not sure if the action of rubbing is harsher than the AHAs?
For a sensitive skin treatment we would recommend Perfect Polish. It is so softening and incredibly gentle, it will buff away your impurities without irritating the skin. Miracle Mask is a dual action mask that contains rice beads and AHAs, so it might be too active for your skin.
The Purify Daily Moisturiser and the Radiant Day Moisturiser are both in bottles, whereas the Replenish DailyMoisturiser is in a jar - is there a reason for that? Does packaging have any impact on the product itself?
That's a very good question. Packaging does not have an impact on the product itself, but it does help with the experience when different textures are concerned. We have chosen to use a jar for Replenish Daily Moisturiser and Cellular Renewal Moisturiser because the contents are thicker, and are easier to use from a jar. The glass jars are now 100% recycled which we are very happy about! They also look great on the bathroom shelf…
Short of surgery, is there anything that can realistically be done to get rid of or vastly improve skin that's becoming crepe-y in appearance in some areas (eyes and neck esp) and rapidly losing firmness or are you pretty much stuck with it once it's happened. My doctor just laughed, (not very helpful), when asked and said surgery.
No that's not very helpful at all! But it's a very legitimate question and one we think we can help you with. As we age and our skin suffers from damage it becomes harder to smooth the skin with topical treatments. We knew this and wanted to do something different. Rather than topically applying, say, hyaluronic acid to the skin, NUDE's new n-probiotic active cell nutrient (which can be found in all our products except our oils) actually works at the heart of cells. Within 24 hours, it stimulates skin to produce its own anti-ageing ingredients and within 3 days, cells appear younger. As cells appear younger and healthier, they become more active and have a stronger chance of renewing and firming skin. We would recommend you try our Cellular Renewal Serum and Moisturiser, they works as a pair to target fine lines and wrinkles, in synergy with your body. This is a long term solution. More than a daily remedy against ageing, NUDE teaches the skin to care for itself day after day. We hope that helps!
Which mask would you recommend for combination dehydrated skin please?
Miracle Mask, it’s such an incredible product to bring radiance back to dull and dehydrated skin. It will help to clarify the complexion so is perfect for combination skin.

I'm currently pregnant and my skin is very temperamental, white heads on my nose and dry cheeks. What skin care regime would you recommend?
Congratulations! We wish you all the best of luck for the rest of your pregnancy term. We would recommend our Purify range, which includes our Purify Cleansing Wash, Purify Toning Water and Purify DailyMoisturiser. NUDE created this range specifically for combination skin; containing cinnamon bark, ginger root and burnet root extract to balance production and purify the skin revealing a fresh and clear complexion. It also contains omega 3 to reduce redness and irritation, the moisturiser in particular has a light, gel-like texture to soothe, calm and hydrate the skin without leaving it feeling too oily or greasy.
Will Progenius help fade acne scars over time?
ProGenius isn't clinically proven to fade acne scars over time so we wouldn't recommend it as a targeted product for this concern. It is rich in omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 to deeply nourish skin cells and reveal healthy, luminous looking skin.
Can you explain the difference between the radiant day and replenish daily moisturiser? I use the old advanced cellular moisturiser and I love it, but I am not sure which one would suit me better, even though my skin is dry but can get spots too. I tried the old balancing moisturiser but I prefer something much more moisturising, so I think the purifying will not be for me.
Good question, we're glad to hear you're a cellular renewal fan. Cellular Renewal Moisturiser is our amazing anti-ageing moisturiser. It contains our new n-probiotic to stimulate the skin to produce its own anti-ageing ingredients, as well as omega 6 & 9 to deeply nourish and hydrate. If you liked the old one, you’ll love the new one, it absorbs instantly into the skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth, firm and luminous. If your skin is prone to spots, we wouldn’t recommend the Replenish Daily Moisturiser as it’s for very dry skin types or Radiant Day Moisturiser which is more for normal skin. And yes you’re right, Purify Daily Moisturiser is part of our Purify Range which targets oily/ combination skins and it has a much lighter, gel-like texture. Why don’t you try a sample to see which moisturiser is best for your skin type?

Hi Nude, do I need a moisturiser and serum if I use the ProGenius, and what order should I use them in?
It really depends on your skin. If it is dry you might benefit using all three. The order to use them would be serum first, followed by blending ProGenius and Cellular Renewal Moisturiser. If your skin isn't too dry you might find using all three at once too heavy. We also like alternating between using serum & ProGenius in the morning and serum & moisturiser in the evening. Finding a routine that suits your skin and lifestyle is always key.
Hi there I was wondering if it is possible to use too many products at once?
That's a great question and one we get asked a lot. It is possible to use too many products if your skin doesn't need them! The secret to beautiful skin is listening to your skin and what it needs, that should be the only rule. Depending on your skin type and skin concerns, we recommend using a cleanser, serum and moisturiser day and night, and a treatment twice weekly.
My skin is somewhat sensitive and can break out. I had heard the nude cellular renewal serum may be helpful?
For your skin we would recommend the Purify range. It is specifically targeted to balance oily and combination skin and clear congestion. Start and end the day with Purify Cleansing Wash and Purify Toning Water. They effectively cleanse the skin without stripping, leaving skin clear and comfortable. Follow with Purify Daily Moisturiser. It not only contains the Purify actives of cinnamon bark and ginger root to balance and refine, but it also contains our pioneering n-probiotic which stimulates the skin to produce its own anti-ageing ingredients, including collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. It also contains softening omega 3 to soothe redness and irritation. The perfect balancing act for problematic skin.
What do you recommend for eczema prone skin?
We don't have anything proven to suit eczema as it is a skin condition that often requires medical help. However, we would suggest that ProGenius would definitely help with the driest of skins, as would Replenish Daily Moisturiser. Both are rich in omegas, completely natural and absorb instantly into the skin. Just be careful not to use on broken skin.
Huge thanks to the NUDE ProTeam for taking the time to answer all these questions, and to everyone who took part! Look out for more LoveLula live Facebook chats in the future.
