Mar/04/2018

I found this Nuxe cleanser underwhelming. I was expecting it to be like the exfoliating gel but it is more of a lotion than a gel for a start and has a strange consistency. It is white with a faint smell of rose and is light on the skin. It rinses clean away and doesn't leave the skin feeling tight or stripped. But my skin did not feel properly cleansed after using this.

Feb/12/2018

I loved Nuxe back in the day. Premium skin care, well priced, beautifully packaged with lovely credentials. Then Nuxe revamped their line and I fell out of love with it. They discontinued some of my favourite products and reformulated others.

This oil is in the rose line. It is a fine, light pink coloured oil which cleanses easily and rinses clean away. It leaves the skin soft and …

Moisturizers - NUXE - Creme Fraiche de Beaute (for normal skin)

I was a big fan of Nuxe back in the day. I wasn't crazy about the reformulated Creme Fraiche de Beaute which was much silkier than memory served and in a smaller jar. The original packaging was lovely. This cream came in quite a hefty jar and even had sun filters.

Cut to the reformulated reformulated Creme Fraiche de Beaute. And Nuxe has created a much more "buttery" …

A wonderful exfoliator that really refines the texture of the skin and is not harsh. It is packed with good ingredients and tiny microbeads which are designed not to scratch the skin and are cushioned by plant oils.Really preps the skin for further treatments. After only a few weeks of using it twice a week, my skin was fresher and noticeably softer. It has a lovely geranium scent like the day …Read more

Luxurious oil packed with nourishment from rosehip oil and others.

Lovely oil texture, golden colour and looks wonderful in the dropper bottle. Attractive "green" scent I love the way this oil moisturises my skin without being heavy and how my skin seems to be thankful for it. The result is that my skin just glows.

I would certainly purchase again and it stands …

Mar/02/2017

A clay mask from a premium Korean brand.

The mask is pitched at combination-oily skin but honestly, it would be fine for sensitive skins because it is effective but mild on the skin. Possibly not the best for dry skin, but I wouldn't rule it out because it is gentle.

This is a creamy face mask that tightens on the skin after ten-twenty minutes application, but not in an …

Jan/30/2017

I had high expectations for this, having known about it for two decades. Even in the nineties, it was very expensive at £30. But it was billed as more than just a milk bath, it was billed as nourishment for people with sensitive skin or eczema. The people at Selfridges back in the day were selling this as a panacea for all skin conditions. It sounded enticing and the mix of rose and jasmin oils …Read more

Cleansers - Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Cream Cleanser

Nov/25/2016

Lovely rich cleanser suitable for all skin types. The consistency is rich so you only need a small amount when you rinse it away with lots of warm water (or tissue away if you choose with damp cotton wool pads if you like).

Peach coloured and with a slight sandalwood fragrance, this cleanser seems to deeply cleanse and purify. My skin always looks pure and glowing every time I use it …
