Nuance Salma Hayek Spring 2014 Collection

The new Salma Hayek Spring 2014 Nuance collection for CVS came just in time! We’ve been so over this cold weather for a while now, and attending the launch event and receiving some wonderful new products to test out was just what we needed to get excited for flowers and warmer weather.

Just a little background info on Salma’s line which was inspired by her grandmother. Her products are designed “to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty.” The haircare products are made with natural ingredients and help repair and restore hair. Her new skin care products are to help perfect skin and reduce the signs of aging.

Nicole’s Take

My hair is curly, but I often wear it straight in the winter. The Nuance collection has products for both my curls and for when I style it straight. I’ve tried each of them and so far I love the way they are on my hair both wavy and straight. Here’s a little bit of info on each of the haircare products:


Bamboo Extract Straightening Balm
A lightweight formula straightens hair and controls frizz for a smooth, lasting, and polished style. A unique polymer enhances humidity resistance, extending the vitality of heat-styled hair without weighing it down.

Healthy Shine Nourishing Oil
This rich, waterless treatment oil instantly and deeply penetrates the hair to restore health and shine to lackluster hair
follicles. A blend of five rich oils creates a modern, weightless texture with powerful nourishing benefits. Color-Lock Technology with UVB absorbers protects color from fading during heat styling and exposure to damaging UV rays, preserving hair strength, shine, and color.

Soy Protein Primer Spray
This light primer formula smoothes hair to equalize its porosity. With improved hair elasticity, the primer allows for even distribution of styling products. By sealing open cuticles, the primer creates a faster drying and longer lasting style. Hair fibers are detangled immediately, due to the high levels of hydration and nourishment the primer yields. A combination of nutrients results in a vibrant, healthy, shiny, and voluminous look.

Blue Agave Curls & Waves Shampoo
This sulfate-free formula gently cleanses without over-drying, infusing the hair with moisture. The mild cleansing system revives waves and builds shine, softness, and movement. The balanced levels of cleansing and hydration provide a luxurious lather to enhance the shampooing experience.

Blue Agave Curls & Waves Conditioner
This rich, repairing conditioner with natural butters and botanical extracts rejuvenates damaged, brittle hair. The fortifying formula provides deep hydration, reviving the natural coil and formation of wavy hair. High levels of moisture and hydration allow for easy detangling and combing.


I might still be in my 20’s but being a mom- I can never be too young for some great skincare products. The cream cleanser is in my shower and I’ve used it everyday so far, I really love how my face feels after using. With a toddler running around, the eye cream is also a must.
