This is miracle in a bottle. It was the product I had been looking for all my life! My skin has become clear, looks soft and healthy. I sincerely can't remember the last time my skin has looked this good. I had four blemishes that just wouldn't leave but this cream got the best of them at last. It totally works wonders. And it smells heavenlyyy! As mentioned, you have to protect your skin from the sun when using this product, a little sun is really too much (my skin was burning after very few minutes). And most importantly, the first applications might trigger some breakouts, but keep faith and continue using the product, you won't be getting any after 2 or 3 times using it and the cream will help clear the blemishes anyway (truly a miracle cream!) Also, many people mention that when taking too much time applying the cream it starts peeling off. I haven't personally experienced it, being first aware of it, but just so you know...
Cleansers -Nuxe - Cleansing Milk with 3 Roses (Lait Demaquillant aux 3 Roses)
mamzaile 3/30/2010 7:21:00 PM
I like to use this cleanser when my skin gets dry. However, I notice that it leaves a film on the skin and, whether it is because of this film or not, I always end up breaking out when using it. I love the smell and the texture, but this product is not working for me.
I did not like it. I wasn't impressed with the exfoliation and it left a film on the skin that made me break out. However, I believe it can be a great product for those with dryish skin and not so prone to blemishes.
I love it. I'm on my second bottle and I intend on buying it over and over again. It's very gentle on sensitive skin and it does not break me out. It lasts a few months, with only 1-2 pumps necessary to leave skin well cleansed. Above all, it is exempt of parabens and phenoxyethanol, which definitely makes it my HG.
Treatments -Nuxe - Creme Nirvanesque (for all skin types)

I have been using this cream for 2-3 weeks and I am absolutely in love with it. The smell is divine, it leaves skin with a fabulous velvety sensation (not oily nor greasy), it respects the sensitivy of my skin, it doesn't break me out and hydrates well. I even use it around my eyes, which is something big considering that I get bad reactions to lots of eye creams. I can't really tell if it makes any difference in the wrinkle area, but I do get a sense that it leaves my skin more plump, healthy-looking and glowing. The fact that the cream comes in a jar is an obvious downside, with all the potential spreading of bacteria, but the cream itself is so wonderful that I am more than willing to overlook this aspect. Incidentally, I dropped mine and it didn't break, so at least it isn't fragile. I also own the Crème Fraîche Suractivée, but I am way more satisfied with this one. Finally, I love how it is free from parabens and phenoxyethanol.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Lavender Essential Oil
mamzaile 11/20/2009 11:28:00 PM
I always turn to lavender oil when I experience dry skin or if I want to accelerate healing of blemishes. I mix 2-3 drops with my face cream and it gives impressive results, skin looks radiant and healthier. However, beware if you have sensitive skin: I started using it more regularly and lots of small red spots have surfaced, so be careful if you know yourself to be prone to allergic reaction.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

It gave me wonderful skin texture at the first three applications, my skin was glowing and felt so soft... Unfortunately, I now have lots of small red spots coming out, my sensitive skin is reacting badly...
Treatments (Eye) -Korres - Evening Primrose Eye Cream

The only lippie this product deserves is for its SPF. I reacted really badly, my undereyes are all purple/red, with red spots and are extra-dry. I've never had such a reaction to a product, I often put day cream or mask on my eyes and I never had any problem, but this is something else.
Wow. It makes such a difference in the length and the definition of my eyelashes, everytime I use it people tell me how long my eyelashes are. To get better results, regular mascara should be put immediately after Cils Booster (before it dries).
Sunscreen -Vichy - Capital Soleil Creme Ecran IP/SPF 45 PPD15
mamzaile 1/25/2009 11:34:00 AM
I used it under the Caribbean sun and it worked wonders keeping my very fair skin from getting burned. However, it makes skin very oily and sticky, which is very uncomfortable and unpleasant (unavoidably, your hair gets all sticky too)
This product didn't work for me. I liked the lavender smell and the glow it gave to my skin, but this is as far as my appreciation goes. It did not help with my dry patches and I think it's responsible for some imperfections.
Moisturizers -Nuxe - Creme Fraiche de Beaute Suractivee (for normal skin)
mamzaile 1/25/2009 11:20:00 AM
I've finally found something that worked for my skin. I woke up to baby soft skin and it got me rid of my dry patches. I love the texture and the smell (reminds me a lot of orange blossom water). I use it mostly at night, because it makes my skin sort of sticky and shiny. However, I'm not too fond of jars, where bacterias are easily spread. It does come with a small stick, but I wonder if it really helps to keep bacterias from spreading.
Loose Powders -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Matte Finishing Veil
mamzaile 9/15/2008 1:13:00 PM
Didn't do much for me. It's hard to notice any difference when you put it on and it's hard to know if you succeeded to get any of the product out of the package. I don't wear enough makeup to say if it helps to keep makeup on and in place, all I can say is that it doesn't break me out. I still feel like I've wasted money.
Self Tanners -Chanel - Perfect Colour Face Self-Tanner SPF 8
mamzaile 9/15/2008 1:06:00 PM
I bought this in the lighter shade, Golden. Really unhappy with purchase, since it is pricey and I was expecting much from it, considering all the good reviews it got here. I have fair skin and didn't notice a difference after putting it on. As soon as I wash my face it seems like it all goes away. I like the subtle shimmer and the smell is pleasant compared to other self-tanners, but that is as far as I'm satisfied with my purchase.
Moisturizers -Neostrata - Oil Free Lotion SPF15 PHA4
mamzaile 9/15/2008 12:58:00 PM
This product didn't do anything for me, except keep me from getting a sunburn, which is about the only advantage I find in this product (the SPF that is) and the fact that it didn't break me out. The minute I put it on, my face gets super shiny, and stays that way all through the day. I didn't notice any difference in my skin texture and can't really tell if it kept blemishes at bay. I now use it as a sunscreen only.
