Skincare- Anti-ageing
Could you kindly assist? I have been on the Clarins skincare range for approx 4 years. After visiting a salon with a friend I was convinced to try Nimue.

I then used the product for 3 months with no results. I noticed growths on my face after I started using Nimue. My derm. says they are facial warts. I stopped using the product.

I am not sure if it was caused by the product or something else. However, I would like to go back on Nimue if the product was not the cause. Also, I am very concerned about ageing as my mother has bad skin and looks older than she is. I loved the Nimue eye treatment and have stayed with it as well as the exfoliating enzyme and it is better for my sensitive skin.

When on Clarins, my skin was velvety and supple, but with Nimue have noticed no change. Clarins is also expensive and if Nimue is a better product, I would rather go with that. How does Nimue actually prevent ageing compared to Clarins?

Your kind assitance is highly appreciated!

Hello Mich, thank you for the question.
I must be honest in that I do not like comparing products or recommending one over another. However, Nimue do provide active ingredients that target the epidermis and dermis and so provide the anti-ageing benefits. With the use of alpha hydroxyl acids, anti-oxidants, alpha-lipoic acid, DMAE etc. one has a good arsenal to help nourish and protect the skin and to allow it to restore and rejuvenate itself. Generally speaking, products that make the skin feel ‘velvety’ is usually from the ingredients placed in the product, such as silicone, so one is actually feeling the product rather than the skin. I cannot find any information that links Nimue products and the outbreaks of warts. It may be a good idea to check that you are on the correct Nimue program/products for your skin.
