Am I the only one who gets intensely dry skin, year-round? It used to be a problem I only had in winter, but whether my impending 24th birthday (ew, let’s not mention that again, I’m still a student, at heart) is the reason for my sudden change of skin type, or just a sign I need to up my skincare game, the whole Deadpool look isn’t really for me.
After intense research (read: checking reviews on Selfridges and Feel Unique), I finally decided that the Nuxe Crème Fraiche 24hr Moisturising Mask might just be the thing to save my skin – and I haven’t looked back since.
The formula of this mask is super thick, but not at all sticky, and it’s so easy to use; you simply apply a thick layer over your face and neck, leave it to sink in for 10-15 minutes, and then massage the remaining mixture in (or, if you’re going out, you can remove the residue with a tissue). And that’s it. It’s that easy.
Now, I don’t know if I’d go as far as to say it really provides 24 hour moisture, but it does definitely keep your skin hydrated for a good few hours, and using this just before bed guarantees you’ll wake up with silky smooth, dewy skin. And, as I mentioned in my ‘Stop Getting Sick’ post, this is a great soothing mask for anyone who’s feeling a little run down, too – the smell of fresh jasmine is one of the most relaxing to exist, after all.
Has it cleared up my dry skin? Yes, surprisingly. I wasn’t necessarily expecting long-term effects, but having used this twice a week since January, I really do feel like my skin is more hydrated, and I couldn’t recommend this more.
Nuxe Creme Fraiche 24hr Moisturising Mask retails for £18.50, here.
