Pellu Skin Care, formerly NuDu Skin Care, sent me a section of products for dry, sensitive skin. After using the gel cleanser with provided sponge, toner, moisturizer, eye cream, and night cream for a month, I made a video detailing my thoughts about the line.
What Pellu Does Well
Pellu Skin Care does many things right, like being GMO free, not testing on animals, and including natural ingredients while working with dermatologists to get the best results. The price point is in the medium range with the basic moisturizer at $64, and the cleanser a reasonable $26. On the website, www.pellu.com, the owner, Liana, heralds from New Zealand, where she derives many of her products and ideas. She also includes with every product a list of ingredients and how they are used.
The brand is touted as a natural luxury beauty line offering beautiful and supple skin results from frequent usage of its products. In examining the ingredients used in them, they do indeed contain many items found in nature, and a few that don’t. The use, or rather over-use, of the word natural in skin care causes me all sorts of rashes. If you go to the grocery store, you can see chickens with the label, Naturalon them as well, but that doesn’t mean that that natural chicken wasn’t stuffed full of antibiotics and corn meal. As a consumer, it is of vital importance that you look beneath fancy advertising into what you are putting in and on your body, and that includes skin care.
What Pellu Actually Does
Pellu walks carefully on the dividing line between natural and chemical by containing mostly natural ingredients. They, like most every over line, cannot be completely natural. In fact, in order to provide lightening and anti-aging ingredients in any skin care line, you have to use some form of chemicals in order to deliver product beneath the dermis layer of the skin. I am not against having chemicals in products, as long as those chemicals arrive very low on the toxicity scale. I checked the EWU (Environmental Working Group) data base https://www.ewg.org for Pellu, but they we’re not listed. Having said that and after using the brand for a month, I can say that it is a solid line that provides a good daily regime for my skin. The anti-aging and lightening claims are much harder for me to judge, given that one month isn’t long enough to determine any substantial change given that I do many anti-aging strategy’s besides what I am currently sampling. If you are looking for a mostly natural skin care line in the medium range cost wise, then I would say Pellu is a satisfying option.
