Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream


Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream is an interesting hybrid product. It gives dry skin a quick shot of moisture when needed and also creates a very smooth layer under your makeup that forms a barrier between your face and the elements and can successfully replace a primer if you're so inclined. The thing is that in addition to a large amount of honey (I even got a taste. Don't ask) and assorted seed oils and plant extracts, Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream also contains a significant amount of the same silicones you find in primers- several varieties of Polymethylsilsesquioxane, so if the stuff clogs your pores this is not the right product for you.

What I've found over a couple of weeks testing this Nuxe cream is that while it doesn't sit well with my Cle de Peau and No. 7 Protect & Perfect serums (it creates a flaky film when used over these products) it's an incredible pore refiner. Seriously- my skin becomes so visibly smooth you don't see any pores. So while this is definitely not an anti-aging product and doesn't replace any of my heavy-duty moisturizers (especially not at night time), Reve de Miel is a good option when you want to reduce the number of products you use under makeup, as long as you don't object to silicones.

Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Comfortable Face Cream ($40, 1.7oz) is available from beauty.com and b-glowing.com.  A press sample was provided by the company.

  1. I tried this recently and found that it irritated my sensitive skin. Maybe it was the honey, I'm not sure, but when dealing with a product with a high number of natural ingredients, I will usually have some sort of reaction. Nuxe's Creme Fraiche 24 hour Moisturizing Cream, however, I LOVED. It produced no such reaction on my skin, and I thought it was very hydrating and luxurious.

    1. Yes, I have. My skin is quite dry these days, so take that into account.
