When Salma Hayek isn’t busy lending her voice to Puss in Boots’ love interest or playing the savage leader of a Baja drug cartel, she finds other ways to use her talent. Salma and CVS have partnered to develop Nuance, a line of beauty products with key ingredients that sound like they belong in a dessert (maybe with the exception of Tepezcohuite). The actress has been actively involved in the creative process by combining personal inspiration with her own experiences, as well as carefully testing each product.
“One of the inspirations for Nuance Salma Hayek was my grandmother. My grandmother was an alchemist. She mixed her beauty knowledge-that is also a historical tradition- and made her own creams in the kitchen. From her, I also learned that it is the subtle differences between us, the nuances, that make you uniquely beautiful. I believe that everyone woman should be entitled to preserve their youth.” –Salma Hayek
We’ve selected four Nuance products that best showcase the line’s key ingredients: tepezcohuite, wild lime, blue agave, and prickly pear. All are available to the masses in the form of beauty products for the first time.
AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream: Tepezcohuite tones skin and provides anti-inflammatory smoothing benefits. It also includes antioxidant-rich Borage oil that aids in cell regeneration while protecting against environmental damage and dryness and Vitamin C-rich parsley to increase circulation and purify skin. $19.99 for 1.4 oz. or $15.99 for 0.27 oz. mini.
Wild Lime Exfoliating Gel: Wild lime is a super fruit that detoxifies and balances skin. It is mixed with other exfoliating fruit acids as well as Neem Leaf extract, and mushroom extract, which offer emollient and enzymatic properties. $7.99 for 4 fl. oz.
Blue Agave Curl Cream: Blue Agave extract softens and moisturizes hair. Meadowfoam Seed Oil, the main component of the line’s hydrabond technology, restores radiant shine and manageability to hair by penetrating the shaft and sealing moisture into the cuticle.
