Crème du Nil

Luxuriously lightweight. Seriously hydrating. 100% plant-powered.
A cruelty-free, vegan daily moisturizer that’s as clean as it is effective. Crème du Nil harnesses the plant-based power of ingredients harvested from the source of the Nile River.

This uniquely lightweight formula contains deeply nourishing Nilotica, hibiscus flower, and Ugandan Vanilla—a potent botanical cocktail that delivers moisturizing fatty acids, naturally exfoliating Alpha Hydroxy Acids, hyaluronic acid, anti-inflammatory antioxidants, and nourishing Vitamin A, E + K to repair, protect and brighten skin. Ideal for all skin types, it can be worn under makeup during the day or layered with a serum at night.

Please indicate if you'd like us to include a complimentary LXMI Copper Wand with your order or not. Kindly note that the custom jar is temporarily being replaced with a new design, which is slightly larger (50ml vs the regular 36ml), as a thank you for your understanding and patience.

I truly love LXMI products. I use the melt night and day, on face and body. I have recently begun to use the lip melt as well. These are wonderful, pure products with a social conscience that really deliver.

"A moisturizer that promises to target pores, texture, and even sticky fine lines thanks to hydrating squalane, shea butter, and glycerin."

"When I tried it, my jaw dropped. Never before had my travel-ravaged skin looked or felt so smooth and plump."

"Luxury products with a unique sense of place--a terroir, just like wine."

"Super-lightweight yet majorly hydrating, it leaves my skin soft, smooth and plump without interfering with any sunscreen or makeup I apply afterwards."

"Crème du Nil is unlike any cream you've tried. Not only does Crème du Nil repair dryness better than other moisturizers, it's every bit as luxe as La M**."

"There are shelves of beauty products that do great things for your skin and others that do great things for the world. But natural beauty pioneer Leila Janah's luxury skincare line, LXMI, does both."

"While it hydrates with natural nilotica, it’s also hard at work exfoliating your skin (and pores) with naturally derived hibiscus flower acids."

"This sustainable moisturizer laughs in the face of 12-hour days."

"My combo dry-oily skin also loved the hibiscus flower acids, which provide some genius, pore-refining exfoliation."

"For years, skincare formulators have used the excuse that they "need" to use silicones in order to create desirable textures. Well, LXMI just proved 'em wrong. It IS possible to achieve a creamy, luxurious consistency without silicones."
