I have had this Nuxe cleanser for over a month already, and although I use it daily I just haven’t gotten around to mentioning it on my blog. The Reve de Miel Face & Body Ultra Rich Cleansing Gel is great value for money as it comes in a huge 400ml pump bottle and obviously it can be used as a facial cleanser or a shower gel. It is an opaque foaming liquid cleanser but doesn’t contain soap, sodium laureth sulphate or anything like that. In fact, most of the ingredients are natural, the main component being honey. I also had the perseverance to look up every ingredient on the Paula’s Choice cosmetic ingredient dictionary and it seems they are all considered good, gentle ingredients for your skin.
I’m usually very wary of foaming cleansers and usually always opt for a cleansing cream or balm, but this one is so gentle and non-drying that I’m happy to make an exception for it. It is targeted at sensitive and dry skin, but it works just as well for normal and combination skin. It is gentle enough not to strip the natural moisture from your skin, but still leaves your face feeling clean with no residue left behind. The only thing you need to be aware of is that it is very strongly scented of honey. I am hopeless at describing fragrance (which is why you won’t ever see a perfume review on this blog, sorry). If you don’t like scented skincare then I would stay away from this one. If like me you enjoy the sensory experience, then I can wholeheartedly recommend this cleanser.
I got mine for R189.95 on Rubybox, but it ought to also be available at the selected Truworths stores which stock Nuxe.
