Another du’a for after wudu

I believe this is from Nasai, is it authentic?

 اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ

Allahummaj ‘alni minat-tawwabina waj’alni minal-mutatahhirin.

O Allah, make me among those who turn to You in repentance, and make me among those who are purified.

 

This is the extra verse I was referring to in this question, I’m sure it’s in the second juz.
