For June 2016, Bio Beaute by NUXE is introducing a range of certified organic body products that features Corsican Citron extract, combined with other essential oils to tone and nourish your skin. Where possible, the products are also sourced sustainable from local cooperatives, fair-trade networks, and responsible producers. The range features the Corsican Citron extract, which is created by macerating the entire fruit in organic sunflower oil for 12 hours, so this extract contains the essential fatty acids from sunflower oil – omega 6 – as well as the anti-oxidant and toning properties from citron. This range also focuses on revitalizing based on aromatherapy; the distinctive and addictive scent of the range is created using the combination of seven essential oils (lemon, tahiti lime, orange, petitgrain, verbena, grapefruit, and red cedar). I have two to show you today, the Toning & Nourishing Satin-Touch Oil and the 24 Hr Refreshing Deodorant.
The Toning & Nourishing Satin-Touch Oil (C$26) is a quick dry down oil that contains organic sesamie oil, which is rich in vitamin E, sesamin, sesamolin, and omega 9 to nourish and maintain the sin’s barrier. This sesame oil is sourced from an organic fair trade network, and harvested using organic methods, then cold-pressed to allow the oil to be obtained without destroying its beneficial properties.
My skin has been crazy dry lately, so I love to use dry oils on my body to provide it with lots of moisture without being heavy or sticky. The Toning & Nourishing Oil is perfect for that. The citrusy scent is also absolutely divine, making it perfect for those who prefer morning showers because the scent is truly energizing. I haven’t really noticed any toning benefits, but I wasn’t expecting to anyways from a body oil. I do have to mention that parfum/fragrance is listed higher on the ingredients list than the actual fruit extracts, which I frown upon when selecting products to use. That being said, I still love how moisturizing this is, and if you’re looking for a hydrating body oil, this is one you should look into.

The 24 Hr Refreshing Deodorant (C$13) features an ultra-refreshing texture with Corsican Citron Extract. It also contains ten different essential oils – lemon, orange, patchouli, cardamom, clove, gaiac wood, cedar, elemi, bucchu, and sandalwood – which have purifying properties to limit bacteria development, and also soothe the skin. In addition, there are five floral waters – lavendar, rosemary, sage, peppermint, and lemon balm – which have astringent, cleansing, soothing, and purifying properties. Lastly it contains starch powder to reduce surface moisture, and aloe vera to reduce sensitivity. It is also free of aluminum salts.
I’m not generally a very sweaty person, so I can’t comment if this is a heavy duty deodorant. I can say that it works really well to keep me smelling fresh all day, almost like a subtle cologne. I really like how it contains so many beneficial ingredients and floral waters to help keep my underarms hydrated, particularly after each shave. You get 50ml in each bottle, and a little will go a long way, so the price is quite appealing as well. If you’re looking for a natural ingredient deodorant without the aluminum, this is a great option that’s affordable.
