True Life: I put gel on my face. And I liked it.

My love for NUANCE Salma Hayek products continue. I hosted a party on behalf of the brand a few weeks back (post coming soon) and now I’ve gone from liking the brand to being totally obsessed. I mean, what’s not to love? The products are affordable, easy to find and they are preservative-free. This CVS-exclusive brand has quickly become one of my favorite brands and it’s because their products always feel high-end.

Like this gel cleanser…

NUANCE Salma Hayek Gel Cleanser

Man, this stuff is fantastic. I’ve been using it for a month now and it is absolutely wonderful. I spotted this at one of my CVS’s (but haven’t seen it at any others) and I can’t believe I waited so long to try it. Both oily and dry skin lovers can get behind this because it’s hydrating, soothing and cleansing. I know people are suspicious about cleansers that don’t foam up but you really don’t need suds to thoroughly cleanse the skin.

And yeah, I can be a lover of the suds too but this cleanser is just ridiculously refreshing. Especially on these too hot to think Florida days.

NUANCE Salma Hayek Gel Cleanser promises

NUANCE Salma Hayek Gel ingredients


-It feels cooling. If you’ve got sunburned skin, this will feel so good on your skin.
-A little goes a long way.
-The woodsy fragrance is niiiiice. And because of that, men may like this cleanser too.
-It thoroughly cleanses the skin. I checked by using a makeup remover after using the cleanser.
-Great and gentle enough for acne prone skin.


-The lack of suds may have you questioning if your skin is really cleansed.
-It is not suitable for cleaning off waterproof makeup. You’ll need a makeup remover for that.
-May not be available at your CVS.
-It’s a tad bit pricey for a drugstore face cleanser.


Cost– $9.99
Where To Buy – CVS stores and
Do I recommend it? – Yep, I think it’s fantastic!

  • I thought you were going to talk about hair gel! I was a worried for a sec there :)

    • Brittany

  • Farrah

    I haven’t tried any of her products, but hits post came right on time I have been searching a drugstore cleanser that may be comparable to my beloved Boscia. I think I will try to locate this and give it a whirl, I’m over paying $26 for a facial soap!

    • Brittany

      I do Boscia though. 😉

  • I’ve yet to try anything from this line, mostly because my cvs doesn’t carry much of it. :(

    • Brittany

      Really? Noooo!!

    With the Salma Hayek on its name, it will be pricey. I like the cooling effect of it, but if most of us use make up, we do need a special make up remover for that. Great site!

  • I’m currently using Nuance and it’s really a fantastic product. It’s refreshing and smells so nice. It’s pricey but it’s worth it.
