If there’s one thing that my friends and family and I enjoy together, it’s a good party. So when I was asked to host a little shindig with my family and friends to introduce the new NUANCE Salma Hayek line at CVS/Pharmacy, I was happy to oblige!
I received a ton of samples for my party and had a blast getting everything ready! To be honest, I didn’t even realize quite how extensive the NUANCE Salma Hayek line was until I began sorting through all of the products to get my goody bags ready for the party!
So how did Salma Hayek come up with her own beauty product line? It all comes down to family…
Salma Hayek’s grandmother was a trained cosmetologist and she passed down her secrets to Salma! Salma Hayek conceived the NUANCE Salma Hayek collection with a desire to honor her grandmother and share her beauty secrets with all women.
The Nuance Salma Hayek collection products are made with proprietary formulas, designed to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty. That’s where the NUANCE comes into the brand name. Pretty cool, right?
NUANCE Salma Hayek is Sold Exclusively at CVS/pharmacy

I was especially happy to see all of the NUANCE Salma Hayek hair care products – I gave the Blue Agave Curl Cream a try before the party and I loved it! It gave my curls great definition while keeping them soft and touchable. It contains blue agave extract that softens and moisturizes for stronger, healthier hair, and the Color-Lock Technology with UVB absorber prevents sun damage, protects against heat styling, and preserves hair’s strength and color.
Obviously, living in Miami, we spend a lot of time outdoors and sun damage prevention is pretty important when it comes to our hair! It also contains a HydraBond Technology with Meadowfoam Seed Extract that helps damaged hair, prevents breakage, controls frizz and seals in moisture for soft, shiny curls. It’s basically the perfect hair care product for me!
Angeline is a big fan of mousse and tried the NUANCE Salma Hayek Lift & Shine Volumizing Mousse. While some mousses make her hair really brittle, the NUANCE Salma Hayek mousse had the perfect amount of hold without being so hard! Made with a special conditioning complex, polymer & humectants, its lightweight formula adds body and bounce while protecting against frizz and heat-styling damage. That’s perfect for Angeline, as she uses mousse almost daily!
Of course Angeline and I couldn’t just keep the NUANCE Salma Hayek beauty products for ourselves, so I got busy filling up the goody bags for my NUANCE Salma Hayek party!
One of the biggest hits of the party was the AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Eye Treatment. It’s a vitamin-rich treatment that hydrates, moisturizes and does a great job protecting that sensitive, delicate skin around the eyes while reducing the signs of aging. With most of the ladies at my party over the age of 30, you can imagine that this product was a hit! You just dab it on with your fingertips and gently pat it in until it’s absorbed.
Why the AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Eye Treatment Rocks:
- It’s NOT tested on animals, which is a pretty big deal for the animals lovers in the house!
- Made with a unique a blend of passion fruit, acai and rice bran, it provides antioxidant protection to soothe, hydrate and firm skin while Tepezcohuite helps to tone and provide antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, conditioning and smoothing benefits.
- Vitamins A, C and E firm skin and help visibly reduce wrinkles and licorice extract helps prevent hyper-pigmentation and brightens skin.
- Babassu Nut Butter offers soothing and emollient properties and watermelon, apple, and lentil fruit extract serve as naturally potent antioxidants to smooth and even skin tone.
- The Palmitoyl-Tripeptide helps condition skin and improve collagen production.
- It’s Paraben-free, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested!
Lissette is all about the make up, and posed for a quick picture with two of her favorite finds, the NUANCE Salma Hayek Ageless Clarity Facial Blotting Papers are the perfect size to fit in her purse!
I think we were all pretty psyched to try the blotting papers because they’re absorbent to help remove excess oil and shine without smudging all the pretty makeup we’d just put on!
The addition of tea tree leaf extract leaves a little bit of a fresh fragrance, which was an unexpected bonus!
My sister Dawn is super lucky in that her nails grow incredibly long and strong.
Of course she dug right in and found the nail polishes! The NUANCE Salma Hayek Nail Lacquers are brand new to the line, with over 20 colors available!
With everything from sparkly shimmers to deep reds, there’s something that works with everyone’s personal style!
We had a blast painting our nails with the new NUANCE Salma Hayek nail lacquers – that’s right, right in my living room!
While I personally don’t wear a lot of foundation – it always seems to melt right off my face because I sweat so much during the summer – Katherine was thrilled to try out the Flawless Finish Foundation and snag my extra bottle!
It goes on so smooth, it’s no wonder they called it “Flawless Finish!” The Light Warm blended right in and matched her skin tone perfectly. The Flawless Finish Foundation has skin-adapting technology that balances tone, allowing your skin’s natural pigments to show through, while the HydraCell complex with apple and lentil extracts provides long-lasting hydration and pearl extract imparts a smooth, radiant finish.
Katherine was also a big fan of the NUANCE Salma Hayek Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum, but living in the tropical climate of Miami, I think we all were! Ha!
I started using the Blue Agave Curl Creme with the Anti-Frizz Serum and my hair has never looked better!
When I arrived in Mexico City the next day, I had so many compliments on my curls, even though I hadn’t washed or styled my hair since the day of the party!
Have you tried any of the new NUANCE Salma Hayek beauty or hair care products at CVS/Pharmacy yet? I would love to hear your thoughts!
