That title is probably the heaviest claim on the lightest and nicest non-sticky but deeply penetrating body cream I’ve ever put on. The best part is, the Nuxe Body Fondant Firming Cream smells of the spicy, slightly floral warmth of summer, too, with almond and orange flower petals. The scent is attractive but not overwhelming, the texture is buttery but not greasy, win. Straight up, no questions asked, this is an expensive product but for a body cream with this quality and effect I would eventually save to repurchase it if I ran out. The texture is too dreamy to describe in full with words. You have to try it.
NUXE BODY FONDANT FIRMING CREAM (No.1 firming care product in French pharmacies) Php2250 for 200ml from Rustan’s the Beauty Source.
“This double-acting firming and anti-ageing body cream with Orange Blossom and Almond Blossom petals has an instant firming effect. Its divine texture is perfect for massaging into target areas which have started to sag (thighs, stomach, chest and arms). It quickly sinks in, leaving skin soft, firm and more toned.”
I wouldn’t vouch for its firming effects on body sagging. I just love how it smells and makes my skin feel softly nourished. On the whole I’ve always been a body cream skeptic, especially in this humid country where anything heavy and sticky eventually takes the backseat on the shelf. At first you say upon opening a tub of cream, “Oh this is lovely, and it smells nice…” but usually only time and how empty that huge pot or jar is will tell how well it was really working for you. In tropical beauty a lot of tubs of heavy cream go unloved and unfinished. On the contrary, I have a massive feeling that by the end of summer this tub of mine will be halfway gone. I’ve reapplied it twice since I first tried it this afternoon and rubbed it onto my mother’s shins just to have another excuse to apply some more before this post, and I’ve reapplied it just now on myself.
