I used to love NUXE's skincare products, but recently I've noticed that the floral scented products from NUXE tends to irritate my skin, and although I did not have a skin reaction with this product, I didn't like it.
Recently my skin has been oozing oil (hormonal issues), and I've been searching for something that is light while still hydrating, and the sales lady told me that this would work for oily skin.
After using it for about 2 weeks I've concluded that this cream has a very thick texture that I didn't really like and it left my skin very sticky. I think I'll have to wait for my skin to stabilize before trying it again, but for now it's going into my skincare graveyard.
