I recently tried Birchbox’s beauty box delivery and have loved how it has opened me up to experiencing new products and often unheard of (to me at least) brands. One of my most prized ‘discoveries’ has been the Masque Crème Fraiche by Nuxe. It must be good as I hate masks; I hate the mess, the time it takes, the texture and the tight, often stingy feeling that gets left on my face. The Nuxe mask is different.
The mask is gentle right from the way it is applied through to how it is removed due to it’s milk-like texture (it can be gently removed by cotton-wool or a damp cloth). It’s smell is subtle and calming and takes just a few minutes to work, so easily applied even if your bed-bound. As it’s not harsh it could be used a few times a week for a moisture boost and the moisturising effects are long-lasting. My Sjogren’s acts as a massive sponge taking away all my skin’s moisture and when it’s very active I sometimes have to apply quite rich moisturiser a few times during the day just to keep my skin ‘stable’. This masque means those applications are less during the 24 hours after I applied it. Effective and lovely to use. A comforting layer for those harsh winter days – ‘uuummmm!’.
