Is Nuxe Paris' Cleansing Milk as wonderful as a bed of roses?
Nuxe Paris Cleansing Milk with Rose Petals is a cleanser meant for normal to dry sensitive skin that might react poorly to harsher soaps and needs a gentler hand in getting clean without being too squeaky clean and stripping the natural oils of your face.
Nuxe Paris is, as the name implies, a French beauty brand that was created in the '90s and is what I would consider very much a "French Pharmacy" brand like La Roche Posay, Avene, etc. The Nuxe name is the merging of "natural and luxury," and was a homegrown effort that grew from the beautiful vision of founder Aliza Jabès, so aside from being an awesome brand, it was created by a woman.
The best place to buy Nuxe products is Paris, where the display at City Pharma (and City Pharma in general) is likely to induce a rush of giddiness, but Target also carries Nuxe products. Generally, I haven't run into a dud with this brand yet. The Reve de Miel lip balm is fantastic, the Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil is amazing (and smells like heaven must surely smell in summer) so I had high hopes for this Cleansing Milk, which features rose water, macadamia oil, and coconut oil as some of it's skin-loving ingredients.
The best way I would describe this is as Gentle Rosy Cleanser, Destroyer of Makeup. It is very gentle and creamy, and breaks down makeup to remove it quickly and efficiently without burning my eyes. It does have a vaguely notable scent that reminds me of French-milled rose soap, those rose-shaped kinds that look fancy and are maybe now a bit outdated. It's not overpowering at all, though, so it shouldn't be an issue. It rinses off well and you don't have to work hard to wipe it off like some denser cleansing balms. I always use a washcloth when I wash my face, so I put this on dry skin, massage around for a moment or two, then press a warm washcloth to my face and wipe it off, rinsing a few times more.
This is suitable for a morning cleanse or for your first cleanse in the evening if you're a fan of double cleansing, and will only set you back about $22, which is pretty decent seeing as you get 6.7 oz of product in the bottle.
You can find it online on Nuxe's site or in stores at Target.
Hello world, it's me, I was wondering if Q1 would ever let me breathe. What was supposed to be a month off turned into two, such is life with a demanding day job. And what better to wipe away stress along with several coats of mascara than a good double cleanse?

Does everything come up roses with this cleanser?
After lamenting the sadly discontinued Nuance by Salma Hayek Cleansing Oil, I've been hoping the drugstore could fill the hole it's left in my heart, and oh, it has!
Palmer's Cocoa Butter has thrown its hat into the cleansing oil game with their Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil, devoid of mineral oil and instead full of nicer ones like soybean, grapeseed, rosehip, etc. It is so so good.
In one of those "I heard it on Tumblr" sort of situations, I came across Meow Meow Tweet, a newer indie skincare brand, and originally was interested in the deodorants but decided to just go on a sample ordering spree.
I got a small size of the facial care kit, face mask, and deodorants.
How does this brand size up?
I'm a bit of a cleansing balm addict. When you find a great one, it really feels like it can do anything: take makeup off, cleanse, treat, double duty as a mask, maybe pay off my taxes? Okay, that last one is reaching just a wee bit but hey, a girl can dream!
The Trilogy brand from New Zealand is slightly newer to the US skincare market, but every product I've tried so far I've ended up loving and gave the brand a nod in my winter skincare favorites. The Cream Cleanser, Hydrating Mist Toner, and Certified Organic Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ are all incredibly lovely and constantly rotate their way into my routine. So when I saw they had released a cleansing balm when I was at Whole Foods recently, I had to try it.
Nuance by Salma Hayek at CVS is, to me, an underdog brand that doesn't get as much love as it should. Some of that is the weirdly small to non-existent marketing behind it, were I to guess. The color cosmetics line is pretty straight forward, but there's some real gems in the skin and haircare range worth grabbing.
Today, I'm talking about a pretty awesome cleansing oil that's both drugstore and less than $11. But, like all goods things such as Firefly, it's too good to be true as CVS has apparently discontinued it. You might still be able to find bottles of it, though, and I highly suggest stocking up.
Do you like cleansers that work well, smell great or maybe don't smell much at all, and don't burn the ever loving crap out of your eyes?
Then for the love of God, skip the Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Oil.
I've recently gotten into cleansing balms, because quite frankly I think they're amazing. A good one removes makeup gently, cleanses, and leaves the skin baby soft. When Sunday Riley launched Blue Moon Tranquility Balm, featuring the blue tansy oil popularly in their night oil Luna, I figured it was a good time to test!
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm is a product I've seen get a lot of love by the fabulous Caroline Hirons, Tanya Burr, and many other UK beauty bloggers. While browsing through Liberty in London, I found it in one of the displays and decided to buy it and see if it lives up to the hype. And oh, does it ever. It is the hype.
