NUXE

Birchbox Breakdown

French women seem to have the uncanny ability to look effortlessly stunning. Before we all run out to buy striped sailor shirts and Chanel flats, it’s worth starting with the basics: our skin. This French brand’s two-in-one cleanser and makeup remover is made for dry, sensitive, and irritation-prone complexions. The amber-hued gel keeps skin’s moisture barrier intact while effectively melting away all signs of dirt, debris, and product residue.

How it Works

Free of harsh soaps, this gel cleanser and makeup remover is made with honey and sunflower extract to soothe and soften skin. It leaves skin clean and refreshed

How to Use

Wet your face, and massage a quarter-size amount into damp skin. Note: if you’re wearing waterproof eye makeup, you should use a separate makeup remover, as this gentle formula works best for water-soluble makeup.

Love the smell and great cleanser
Purchased

I first used it at a friend's house and I had heard her rave about it for a while. When I finally got it, this has become my go-to cleanser. So easy to use with a nice smell! Everything comes right off but I would suggest using a warm towel, helps with heavier makeup!

I liked it.

The cleansing gel leaves the skin feeling brighter and happier. The smell is nice and pleasant. I would buy this if came in a smaller bottle.

Sk[indescretions] be gone!

As a pastry chef, I'm always thrilled to find products like this that translate from skincare to dessert so seamlessly. This "dream of honey" manages to take something I'd normally get my head stuck in a jar for, and transforms it into a lathery wonderland that smacks of fresh flowers and teatime. All this without inflaming my rosacea or leaving my skin tight and residue-y? I daresay I'm sold.

Honey yum
Purchased

Smells absolutely heavenly. One squirt covers my whole face and chest. I keep telling myself I need to use up my old cleanser, but I just can't help but use the Reve de Miel instead. My skin feels so soft afterward, and did I mention the smell?

Great to remove make up
Purchased

I received this as a sample months ago and loved it. I wish they sold the sample packets for packing! It is great at removing all make up and leaving your skin feeling clean and soft. I have very sensitive skin and this works great on my face.

NUXE

This NUXE facial cleansing and makeup removing gel was nice because I didn't feel like I had to scrub my face to remove my makeup. It was very gentle on my skin, but it did leave my skin feeling a little sticky.

Wonderful, gentle cleanser!

I love this cleanser - it was my Cetaphil substitute when I lived in France, and I loved it so much that I go out of my way to order it online and continue to use it now that I'm back in the states. I'm a morning and night face washer, and a bottle tend to last me about 4 months as you only need one pump of cleanser at a time, so it's worth the price!

Some reviewers have referenced the smell, saying that it's too strong and old lady like - I certainly don't feel that way. It's definitely a stronger fragrance than some cleansers, but I find it very pleasant and true to the line name "Reve de Miel" - honey dream. I typically love or detest honey scented products, there is not middle ground, so I'm thrilled to have this falls in the "love" category. If you are familiar with the Reve de Miel face creams (day or night) the scent it similar, but not the same - the cleaner definitely has a more soapy note.

I would recommend this cleanser to my friends and family a thousand times over, and I'm thrilled to see Birchbox carrying some of the Nuxe line!

Smelly, but effective

My skin felt soft and hydrated after using this, which was a major plus because my skin is usually very dry after being washed. But the smell was a major turn off. It was incredibly strong since I used it on my face and not very appealing (like an old lady musky perfume). I would buy this product only if they offered other, more subtle scents.

Very Clean Skin

I enjoyed this product, the scent is a little strong for my liking though. I used this with my clarisonic and my skin felt very clean and smooth afterwards. Would love to try in a different scent.
