Review of Nuxe MASQUE FRAIS HYDRATANT by ECMac25
This was my first introduction to Nuxe skincare when I was on the hunt for a hydrating mask three years ago that I could wear on long flights without scaring the passengers :D ---something that would moisturize & protect like a heavy cream, but would feel light and look invisible on the skin. This product was recommended by my esthetician at the time and I brought a tube of it with me on my trip to the Philippines. It did not disappoint! I wore it for the entire 16 hour trip with no irritation or dryness whatsoever. It stays thick enough that you see where you are applying it, but as you massage it in, it absorbs and leaves a fresh dewy finish. It can be rinsed off with water or toner after a minimum of ten minutes, but also can be left overnight like a treatment cream. I'm amazed that the hydrating properties lasted for so long and that I didn't have any adverse skin reactions. I'm back to using Nuxe skincare, and I made sure to purchase this mask as part of my regimen to use on a weekly basis. (My skin is combination, but definitely feels dry in colder weather or after spending the day in a ventilated office.) This mask is a miracle product for thirsty skin. UPDATE: 01/10/07 -- I still like this product, but it works better when my skin is very dry. If I use it year round as a weekly treatment, sometimes the day after I get a bumpy texture on my cheeks (always happens when I use skincare that's too rich for my skin).
