Treat yourself this Christmas with our favourite hero product face mask
Words Joy Montgomery
Any beauty-lover will tell you that French pharmacy skincare is the secret ammunition in their beauty arsenal. Brands such as Nuxe, Bioderma and La Roche Posay have gained momentum through word of mouth and personal recommendation, securing their cult status within the industry.
With French brands now being stocked in many British pharmacies, there’s no excuse not to give Gallic beauty a go. One hero product that keeps cropping up on our radar is Nuxe’s Crème Fraîche Masque, with users waxing lyrical about its skin plumping and hydrating effects.
Beauty blogger The Sunday Girl says: “there is no lighter yet nourishing and gentler way to treat dry and dehydrated skin.” While Lucy from Beauty and the Blogger said it left her skin feeling “moisturised and supple for days”.
Nuxe recommends using the masque once or twice a week, leaving it on for ten minutes, then absorbing any excess by massaging in using the fingertips. For a more refreshing experience, try putting the product in the fridge first, or for a more targeted approach simply apply on areas in particular need of hydration. You could even apply next time you fly for baby soft skin on arrival. No more air conditioning-induced dryness.
