Review / Nuxe 24hr Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask

I remember Nuxe making the first appearance in the pharmacy of my hometown, in the early nineties; Italian pharmacies are very much like the French ones - where you can get great brands for really affordable prices - and I have often accompanied my mum in her shopping trips.
At the time tho, I didn't pay much attention as a teenage girl, attracted more to colourful packaging and the latest brands, advertised in my glossy magazines; after this fascination passed, tho... I did realised mums do know best! :)

Nuxe new range for Autumn 2012 - Creme Fraiche de Beaute' - is specifically formulated to give 24hr hydration.
8 Plant Milks and Aloe Vera boost the skin's water reserves and the ability to mantain optimal water levels, whilst Almond and Orange White Flowers sooth the skin and provide relief for discomfort as redness and irritation.

Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute'*
What's pretty innovative with this mask is that you can apply it to the eye contour, too!
 You leave it on for 10 minutes and then massage the remaining product into the skin; it, nearly, absorbs completely but as a final step is recommended to remove any excess with some toning lotion.

The mask feels very fresh on the skin and has a very strong flowery, natural scent.
It's very light on application and directed for all skin types - it leaves skin supple and fresh looking, without any sticky residue.
 I have been using it as a last minute, emergency treatment before going out: it doesn't leave any redness plus my eye area looks more relaxed and my concealer lasts very well, afterwards.

Included in this line, there are 3 face creams - specially formulated for sensitive/normal, sensitive/combination and dry/extra dry skin - and a serum for very dry skin.
Everything available from and from the 1st of September and with prices starting from £18.50 for the face mask.

Are you going to pick something up from this range?


  1. This sounds brilliant! I love masks that can be used around the eye area.

    1. me too, i feel like they must be gentle and I don't risk any nasty reaction. :)

  2. Great review, this sounds fantastic! I so want to save up to go to Paris so I can stock up on loads of Nuxe! x

    1. Hehe, great reason to go to Paris too. ;) I haven't Found a nuxe product which has disappointed me. All beautifully formulated! X

  3. That mask sounds brilliant, have heard nothing but good things about it. I have the serum but I think it's too rich for my skin xo

    1. Oh no, I wanted to try the serum next but I think I'd better give it a miss now.... Probably too thick or me too. :( x

  4. I love the sound of this mask. I have been buying and trying lots of masks recently, but I am really in need of a good hydrating one, and I love the sound of this one since you can apply it to the eye area. I've been waking up with such puffy eyes lately and my dark circles don't seem to fade away after an hour or two as they used to, so perhaps this might help a little bit with that. Well, anything is worth a try, and I'm running out of ideas!
