After trying my first NUXE products in a giftset before Christmas (review), I am now a massive fan of the French Pharmacy brand. Their Rêve de Miel lipbalm is beyond amazing, and deserves all of the hype it receives. For the last few weeks I’ve introduced a brand new moisturiser into my skincare regime from NUXE; the NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream £23* (Currently only £15.33 at Escentual during their March French Pharmacy event).
I placed an order on the NUXE website a couple of month ago, and with my order I received some sachet samples of a few of their products.. one of those was a sachet of the Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream. The sachet contained only a few ml’s of product, which was enough for one application, and from that one application, I was left so impressed that I knew I had to get the full size.
The NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream is described as a fondant cream which works to replenish lipids (Sunflower Oil Derivative, Safflower Ceramides and Precious Oils), to soothe (Barley, Argan Oil and Shea Butter), repair (Honey) and protect the skin from environmental assaults (Vitamin E and Sunflower Derivative).
It claims to leave the skin feeling intensely nourished and regains lasting comfort.. with any feelings of irritation and tightness are relieves while the look of redness and roughness is diminished. This face cream is suitable all year round for those with dry and sensitive skin, and during extreme weather conditions for those with normal skin. It contains 91% ingredients of a natural origins, is paraben free as well as being non comedogenic (doesn’t produce nor aggravate acne).
Tests carried out by NUXE on 21 volunteers over 28 days found…
91% felt that their skin had been intensely nourished.
86% felt that its comfort had been restored.
91% said that any sensations of discomfort and tightness had been reduced.
The NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream is contained within a really weighty 50ml glass jar which wouldn’t be particularly travel friendly, although you could decant some into a more lightweight container for travel. The cream smells heavenly, it’s the nicest scented moisturiser I’ve used.. although don’t worry the scent disappears after around twenty minutes. The fondant description is so apt, as the cream has such a thick consistency within the jar but smooths across the skin with ease. A little goes a really long way, with one touch of my fingertip on the cream being enough for my cheek chin and nose.
The cream feels instantly soothing on the skin, which is so comforting.. especially on more dry or sensitive area. After applying the face cream, I don’t experience any burning or stinging whatsoever which I love as I always feel my dry patches sting with other moisturisers I’ve tried. Once applied, my skin feels as if I’ve applied a nourishing facial oil.. in that it feels smooth and intensely nourished.
Whenever I use the NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream I find that I don’t even need to apply a primer as the cream works as such an amazing base for my makeup. After I’ve applied the cream all over my face, I like to let it sink in for around 10 minutes before proceeding and applying my makeup.
My foundation applies so much more smoothly when applied over the face cream, as it feels as if it leaves a layer of moisture onto the skin, so my brush just glides across my skin. Plus my dry patches are also covered with a moisturising layer which makes them a lot less noticeable which makes me very, very happy.
Even though this moisturiser is marketed as a day cream, I prefer to use it both morning and night as it’s just so intensely nourishing that no other moisturiser or night cream comes close to the hydration I get from this NUXE cream. It leaves my skin instantly nourished and packed with hydration all day long, it’s just amazing. Normally my skin tends to start feeling dehydrated by midday, but never with the Ultra Comfortable Face Cream.
I suffered with dry patches on each of my cheeks and my forehead, however the patches on my cheeks have drastically improved and shrunk which again makes me ecstatically happy as it’s my biggest skin concern. My foundation looks so much smoother thanks to this cream, as my skins surface is a lot smoother and I’ve even noticed that my pores on my cheeks are a lot less noticeable too.. however NUXE make no claim or mention of this being something it does?! But trust me.. it really, really has minimised my pores.
I have never found a moisturiser as nourishing as the NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream. Its effects can be felt from the very first application, and I completely agree with all of NUXE’s claims.. it even soothes and helps my acne scarring heal to. I just cannot stress enough that if you have dry skin like myself, or experience the dreaded tight sensation or soreness with other moisturisers.. you must try this face cream.
I’ve been raving about it to anyone who’ll listen, as it’s just made such a difference. I don’t even need to apply an eye cream as this cream doubles up as intensely nourishing eye cream too. The NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream is better than any face cream, moisturiser, serum or mask I’ve ever tried at relieving and reducing my dryness. If you do decide to purchase this miracle worker, make sure you do before the end of March from Escentual whilst it’s got a third off at an amazing £15.33 – it’s FANTASTIC.
