Whenever I review a skincare product I make sure to use it for at least a month. Your skin renews itself every 28 days or so to know the real deal you have to use a product at least that long. After the month is up I choose to blog about the product after one of the following three triggers:
1) I’m so excited about it that I have to blog about it straight away
2) I’ve used up the entire bottle and want to blog about it while it’s still fresh in my mind
3) I’ve decided to stop using it because I don’t really like it that much
The Anti-Aging Soothing Emulsion for sensitive normal, or combination skin by Bio Beauté by Nuxe fell into the 3rd scenario for me. I bought it in the summer at Monoprix in Avignon, France. The summer months are so nice for dehydrated skin. Hydration takes a back seat to sun protection worries. This is why I picked a lighter product than normal . The emulsion is a bit watery and it separates easily which I guess is why it was called an emulsion and not a cream. However by definition creams are an emulsion (binding water and oil and getting them to stay together) so I’m not really sure what the marketers were trying to achieve there. Plus if there is water in the product then you’ll need preservatives which will hopefully be of the naturally-derived, more expensive, non-paraben kind.
