Six months ago, I’ve admitted having confused my skin with all kinds of potions and treatments used sparingly and therefore ineffectively. I’ve also talked about the importance of going back to basics every now and then to bring back the skin to its normal self. Since then, I have returned, my blog shows it, to my heavy testing phase, but have kept one rule: to always finish the skincare regime by a simple step! So, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, here is another introduction to another simple moisturizer.

Long before its recent reformulation, Nuxe’s Crème Fraîche de Beauté was many skincare experts’ favourite, one of those beloved skincare item which a lot of people agree about. There is no denying that it works well, yet it took as long as one reformulation to end up in my own shopping basket. Despite the anti-pollution and 48 hours of hydration claims which I will forever struggle to believe in, La Crème Fraîche de Beauté is the definition of a simple moisturizer: an affordable price, some strong hydrating and nourishing properties thanks to an ingredient list which, despite being relatively lengthy, is actually quite easy to comprehend.

As any moisturizer will do, however, La Crème Fraîche de Beauté comes with its particularities, starting with its consistency: similar to a balm on the pot, the texture goes back to the classical, not too rich, not too light cream consistency. The famous and highly appreciated Nuxe scent is here as well, think French Pharmacy scent with some fresh, clean notes added to it. As for the blue and white plastic packaging, it reminds me of the blue sky and tough cold of the winter, quite fortuitous considering that this rich cream specifically designed for dry to very dry and/or sensitive skins will be the perfect yet simple addition to the usually too complicated winter skincare routine.


  • That sounds like a really good moisturizer for the colder months xx

    I love the scent of the Nuxe products, I find it refreshing and luxurious at the same time. Sounds like a great cream to add to our winter skincare stash.


    • Yes, it has been a long time since my last Nuxe product, but the scent is still one of my favourites! It is indeed!

  • I just got a little sample of this though I don’t know if its the newer version or not? Either way, I can’t wait to try it. I am the same as you – I love layering products but sometimes its best to pare it down to basic steps xxx

    • If you just got it, it must be the new version as Nuxe did quite a lot of promotion around it! Hope you enjoy it!

  • My skin is pretty angry at me right now, and I think I have found the culprit, so I try and keep things basic at the moment as well. Other than the lip balm I haven´t tried much from Nuxe.

    • Me neither actually! But I believe I’ve loved everything I’ve tried so far!

  • Now this definitely sounds right up my street! xx


  • This is a brand that I have yet to really try! For some reason I am not as interested in it as I am with La Roche Posay and Bioderma.

    • Well, you know me, La Roche-Posay will always be my favourite, but this moisturizer is very lovely!

  • Love your description of the Fresh Pharmacy scent with ‘some fresh, clean notes’ – that sounds beautiful! I’ve only ever tried a couple of products by Nuxe, but have never been disappointed! 🙂

    • Yes, I love this scent a lot! I’m the same: I haven’t tried much, but I love everything I’ve tried so far!

    Sounds amazing, I might need to try this next!

    This sounds lovely for when skin needs some extra moisture through the winter months. I actually didn’t know Nuxe made a product like this, I only know them for their lip balm and body oil! x
