Nuxe Masque Créme Fraîche de Beauté, €21.00. Press sample. Full disclosure policy here.
D’you remember my post on what the differences are between dry skin and dehydrated skim, plus how to treat them? It’s relevant reading if your skin is acting up and you’re not really sure what kind of care it needs.
For those who fall into the dehydrated camp, Nuxe Masque Créme Fraîche de Beauté is your guy.
The dessert-sounding blend provides moisture and helps skin hold onto it, the latter being something that dehydrated skin isn’t very good at on its own. It’s a double whammy treatment, and that’s reflected in its texture.
My dry skin usually soaks up masks quickly, and I scoff at the ’tissue off excess’ step written on most tubes, but this is heavy stuff.
For me, Nuxe Masque Créme Fraîche de Beauté would never be a pre-makeup step – it leaves a residue that would cause foundation to separate and congeal. I always apply it at night, and it’s only totally absorbed by morning.
The result is visible – those slight lines that I have around my eyes are plumped up, and I look twice as rested than I feel. To the touch, my skin is very soft.
In conjunction with a gentle chemical exfoliator, which you’ll need for the shedding that dehydrated skin does, this is a quick step to sorting January skin out.
It’s not pricey, at €21 with free shipping from Cloud 10 Beauty, and it’ll last. Mine’s been in use for about four months and I’ve got about a half tube left. Wonderful stuff!
