Let’s get this out the way. Creme Fraiche (£16.50) does not smell like creme fraiche. It’s quite unpleasant (concoction of jasmine and plastic?) to me. Nuxe says it is fragranced with notes of orange blossom -inconsiderable, if not completely absent. It seems to linger forever too. However, I adore this product for its ability. Light yet intensely hydrating with no oily residue. This makes it a good base before foundation or primer.
Nuxe is known for their natural approach to skincare. Creme Fraiche is atleast 89% natural. If you prefer a rich cream that stays on throughout the night, this might not be it. I think it’s perfect as a day cream.
