This is facial moisturiser for dry to very dry skin.
It costs around £25 for 50mls in Boots (as of July 2008) and to me this was a luxary buy. Though I have used moisturisers other luxary brands- clarins, clinique, benefit...etc but these have all been bought for me as gifts, this was not, it was my own hard earned cash.
At this price, compared to when I last bough moisturiser from the Body Shop, E45 or Nivia, I was expecting something really special. But it wasnt all new to me, I had tried a different Nuxe branded product as a freebie a long while ago and had wanted to buy this brand for a while as it really seemed to work after just one use.
I applied this moisturiser every night, before I went to bed after cleansing/washing my face. I used itr every night and it lasted me quite a long time. About 6 months!
The pot comes in a square box, and also with a plastic spatula to portion ou the correct amount, which is literally a pea sized portion. It may seem like a small amount, but this cream does go far, its really very dense and settles into skin really well. It only took about a week for my skin to feel much much better then it previously had.
I noticed this product did not give me the same coating of 'grease' or slipperiness that I get after applying other moisturisers, this was good, it really blended in to my skin and left my skin feeling really soft. I would actually say it is worth the £25 price tag I paid! (even if it was in boots advantage points!!)
It has a really nice scent, its different from any other moisturiser I have sampled in this way, its not a chemical scent, its a mild floral/herbal sort of scent. Like the Sanctury or Dermalogica sort of a scent, not the harsher chemical sorts like Oil of Olay or L'oreal, Nuxe has a really unique and mild scent.
I was sad when this ended, my 50mls was very much enjoyed though I would have loved more of it! I do think it was a good buy, it lasted probably double what the same amount of my nivia 100mls did, as its so much more dense. But I do think if your face is slightly dampened with toner (which I had also used but did not with the nivia, E45 or body shop...etc as the nivia... is too thin and would just never settle into my skin). I had been spritzing on dermalogica toner but just elaving your face damp after washing would do a similar thing. Either way, the moisturiser lasts much longer, it can be spread further which is something that many cheaper brands cannot do.
This is available as far as I have found, only from Boots, and afew online stores. Its a french product and I would keep your eye out as its only really just recently in the last 12 months come into boots, so would imagine its trial running at the moment.
