As you may have read on previous posts us little sisters have very different skin types. When it comes to sharing beauty tips for dealing with our skin we normally have to keep them to ourselves as they normally don't actually help one another. But hopefully its quite useful as we can test products for both skin types :o)

In this post, we thought it might be interesting to test a much needed moisturiser from the same brand, in this case NUXE Paris, but for both our individual skin types. We both have tested our face moisturisers day and night for a few weeks. This is how we got on...

Becki - Oily/ Combination Skin
Tested - NUXE Anit- Fatigue Moisturising Cream for Normal to Combination Skin

This cream smells and feels divine. I have started using this moisturiser day and night after using Super facialist facial serum and my skin feels amazing! One beauty nightmare for me usually is finding a great moisturiser. I feel like I have tried them all and I never have found a favourite. This moisturiser is staying put! 

I have been using it for about two weeks now and for me I feel a difference in my skin. I hate that horrible feeling, which I have experienced many a time testing moisturisers, of waking up with greaser skin than you went to bed with! The first day I tried this I knew it would be different, its a great texture- very soft with a great thickness that isn't too thin or thick but the right consistency to make your skin feel hydrated. The cream as I mentioned smells beautiful, its a subtle floral scent that stays when on the skin, which I really like. All I need now is about 100 pots of it to see me through the rest of the year! I think i'm sold with this moisturiser- finally no more greasy skin or stress over finding that perfect moisturiser.

Jess - Dry/Normal skin 
Tested - NUXE 24 hr Soothing and Moisturising Rich cream for Dry to Very Dry Skin

As you may know by now I really suffer with dry skin - especially in the Winter. To help tackle my flakey skin I have recently been using the Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser and Serum duo which was really fab, but after having now run out I was introduced to the amazing 24 hour soothing and moisturising cream - which I can not sing it's praises enough! 

I have been using this product day & night for the last 2 weeks and it is just amazing. The star ingredient is something I can hardly pronounce - Salicornia, which ensures that skin is well moisturised for up to 24 hours (just what I need). Normally when I read something like this ('24 hour moisture') I get a little worried as Becki already mentioned you don't want to wake up in the morning with your pours feeling blocked, heavy and greasy but with this product that is not the case - Instead I wake up with baby butt skin woohoo! 

It is almost of a buttery texture, super soft and really light on the skin leaving my face feeling truly nourished. But now onto the smell - oh my gosh it is absolutely incredible; it is a really flowery, yummy, edible scent similar to orange blossom, but not to the extent where it is too perfumed and head achey'. It actually really reminds me of being in a spa - making the product smell luxurious, glamourous relaxing & calming. 

Nuxe Paris - we love you!

Hugs & Kisses
Becki & Jess
