Ah samples. What would we do without them? They are the perfect opportunity to discover something new or to serve as a warning to stick with what we've got. If you've been reading my blog for a while now (thank you so so so much by the way you are awesome) you probably know that I am a HUGE Nuxe fan. It is seriously my all-time favorite skincare brand and so far - no other brand has come close to dethroning it. In other words, I buy a lot of their products = I get a lot of samples.
The one I would like to review today is the Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beaute - 24HR Soothing and Moisturizing Cream. I have completely use-up this sample which equaled to 4 days of use. I usually applied it with my fingers all over my face in the morning (after washing or toning my visage). Hmm well let us start with the positive shall we? The scent is absolutely amazing. How could I best describe this? Have you ever cut the stem of a flower or squeezed the stem of a dandelion then smelled your fingers? (Ok Ana..you are creeping us out a little bit)..Well this creams smells EXACTLY like that. Like flower stem juice. I know I sound weird but seriously, this scent is so natural and fresh and green it is unbelievable. It reminds me of Spring by the lake. I'm tapping into my memories here. :-P
Moving on to the consistency: well..cream just pretty much sums it up. It is very light and white. It absorbs super fast into your skin and you get this instant feeling of being refreshed. However, the cream itself did not do much overall. It claims to de-thirst and soften your skin but mehhh. I mean I guess it did soften my skin but..I'm pretty sure the toner or the face wash was responsible for that one..and not so much this cream. Nuxe has so many incredible and in some cases life-changing cream (and I am not joking) that in comparison, this one fell flat. :( Wahh-Wooh. So I'm sorry to say that I will not be buying the full-size of this product. But hey it was worth giving it a shot right?
Do you have any favorite Nuxe products that you would like to recommend me? Because I really love hearing from you. ^_^
