NUXE Melting Cleansing Gel

Rose water has been prized since ancient Roman times for its skin-soothing properties. NUXE knows better than to mess with a good thing: the French brand has made this traditional ingredient the star of its daily cream cleanser. The formula purifies skin and melts away residual makeup in a single step. Great for those with sensitive or combination skin, it has a heavenly scent courtesy of pure Damascena rose water.

This cleanser leaves a greasy residue and the smell of roses is nice, but a little overpowering. If you are looking for that squeaky clean feeling, this is not the thing for you.

Not again...
Sampled

2nd month in a row I've gotten something rose scented...and I hate all things rose scented. Decided to give it a try as I love new facial cleansers. This is not that product. Though my face felt really soft after use, it did not get rid of residual make up as the description suggests. Sorry, Nuxe, I need one product that does it all.

cleanser?

I really didn't get the point of this stuff. I'm all for gentle cleansing but like another review mentioned, this stuff is definitely not removing any makeup or really cleaning your skin.

Its Okay

I love the scent of rose and I thought " Hey! Its french, its roses its gotta be good! " and well... meh. Its okay. Not as hydrating as I expected. So I'll keep on hunting.

Great product, awful scent.

I think the product works well for what it is supposed to do. It helps relieve dry skin and makes your skin feel silky soft. However, I was off put by the scent. In my opinion, it smelled like an old lady in a funeral home, which is unpleasant for a twenty-something girl like me. If the scent was different, I would definitely use this product.

Nice

I am not a big fan of cream cleansers for my face. After using the sample I wanted to wash my face again. The cleanser did not give me the clean feel. I later tried it again as a "cold cream" of sorts letting it rest on my face then washing it away with my face wash. It does have a light rose water scent to it which is not bad. It's nice to use to remove eye make up before bed. I got more satisfaction out of it using it that way.

Smells great, feels great, but not great for acne

This stuff feels and smells wonderful and I love to use it, but it did seem to make me break out a bit. Definitely not a substitute for anti-acne products.

Not sure about this Product

It feels like it dissolves in your hand when it's mixed with water, almost like when you use the MAC oil cleanser to remove eye makeup you can't use it really with water, if anyone is familiar with MAC oil cleanser then you may understand what I mean. The scent is great so I'm gonna try this product one more time!

Nothing special

I tried this one but it wasn't anything special. My face feels just as clean from a bar of soap, although a soap bar would leave it feeling drier. I didn't have a greasy residue or anything, but it wasn't the same squeaky clean feeling as the Neutrogena face wash I already have.

Oooh La La

I love the packaging, and I love that it smells like roses, but as a cleanser...it's really nothing that special. It's a good, gentle daily cleanser, but it doesn't remove a lot of eye makeup which makes me wonder how much dirt and makeup it's really removing from my skin when I wash my face.
