Today I’d like to talk about the Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beaute 24 that is a real mixed bag for me.
Volume: 50 ml
Price: about 20-25 Euro
The cream comes in a fool proof plastic tub and a paper package that I have actually thrown away before writing this review.
The manufacturer claims that it’s a moisturizing cream for normal and sensitive skin. Also, you can find the ingredients and suggested use. By the way the use is very simple: apply the cream to clean skin. Easy-breezy.

The maker promises just to moisturize and nourish the skin without any facelift, even complexion effect or anything.
So, it’s an ordinary pharmacy cream for everyday. However, the price is too hefty, in my opinion.
In the beginning the cream was covered in a foil.
Texture and smell
The Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beaute 24 is beige and has a pretty thick texture.
It’s not greasy and soaks in quickly without leaving any oily sheen or looking mask-like. The cream moisturizes and nourishes alright and I use it primarily at nights before going to sleep. In my opinion, it’s not good for daily use at all, because it creases
Moreover, the cream has a disturbing and pretty long-lasting herbal smell.
Those who used some Korean high-end creams know this ‘freshly cut grass’ smell that is quite obtrusive. Mildly speaking, it’s not up my alley. However, it’s kind of a personal preference thing.
It didn’t cause any allergies, breakouts or clogging with me.
I will not repurchase the Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beaute 24. Those who have sensitive skin and are prone to allergies will probably like it more. As far as I’m concerned, it didn’t soothe my skin but only moisturized it a little. So, hands off given the hefty price.
