NUXE CREME FRAICHE DE BEAUTE OR TACKLING THE COLD IN ALL SIMPLICITY
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.
