Current Obsession: Nuance's Delectable Cream and Scrubs

With fall officially at our doors, today's current obsessions are actually three products with the yummiest scents imaginable for fall. Nuance (the beauty line created by Salma Hayek exclusively for CVS) has three products each with a scent more delectable than the last. The Dark Cacao & Coffee Firming Body Cream, Macadamia Nut Exfoliating Body Scrub, and Walnut Facial Scrub are the latest products to grace this editor's bathroom counter.
The Dark Cacao & Coffee Cream combines two of my favorite things in life—coffee and chocolate—in the form of a cream that smooths, hydrates, and even tones a bit! The coffee seed extract boosts collagen, while the cocoa seed butter hydrates and stimulates circulation. I'm loving this for a post-shower lotion that keeps the smell of chocolate and coffee with me all day.
As if dark cacao and coffee scent wasn't fall enough for you, the Macadamia Nut Exfoliating Body Scrub and Walnut Facial Scrub both leave my skin feeling hydrated and fragrant. The macadamia nut scrub hydrates while removing dirt and excess oils on the body. Micro-beads exfoliate and remove dirt, but the real magic here is the macadamia nut oil, which acts as a natural emollient and contains Vitamin E to protect from free radicals.

For the face, the walnut scrub exfoliates without leaving you feeling greasy. The crushed walnut shells, which you can actually see, act as the exfoliant while annatto seed, rice bran oil, acai fruit oil, passionflower seed oil, and babassu seed oil work together to calm, hydrate, and soothe.
Nuance's Dark Cacao & Coffee Firming Body Cream, $14.99, Macadamia Nut Exfoliating Body Scrub, $8.99, and Walnut Facial Scrub, $7.99 are all available at CVS or CVS.com.
