Get 48-hour moisture, remove your makeup and plump up your face with a mask—all with one tube of face product? Yes please. That’s exactly what Nuxe’s new Crème Fraîche 3-in-1 facial product promises…and it works. We promise.
With its formula of botanical milk, sweet almond oil and shea butter, this creamy blend of goodness has become our one-in-all go to when we’re on the run. (And when we’re not. We’ve stashed a tube in our gym bag and kept a second on our bathroom shelf above the sink.)
In the morning, we rub a pea-sized amount across our entire face to moisturize our skin. Believe us when we say the hydration lasts all day long. Later, in the evening, we massage a little over our eyes to gently remove our mascara and then across the rest of our face to eliminate SPF and face makeup. After we’ve rinsed our skin clean, we reapply a thicker amount of the cream from our forehead to our chin and let it soak in for 10 minutes before washing away the excess product. On nights when our skin is feeling really dry, we don’t rinse the cream off and simply sleep with it on, like a nighttime facemask. It pays off too, with smoother, softer and plumper-looking skin.
And with its tube-style packaging complete with a screw on top, we can easily toss this multi-tasker into our purse or overnight bag (like we said, ours is in our or gym bag), without worrying about spillage. Plus, the cream’s formula is vegan, boasting a 98 per cent inclusion of ingredients of natural origin so there’s that. Who knew a three-in-one could be so high performing and oh-so fantastic.
