Why is Crème Ancienne handmade?

Because the heating temperatures of oil and wax are extremely challenging to control, our co-founder Lev Glazman turned to a monastery to make the cream by hand in small batches. Each ingredient is poured in a particular order and at a determined temperature to get the one-of-a-kind texture you see today.

You need a VERY SMALL amount. Basically the size of a grain of rice. Rub between fingers and pat into face. Prevents any irritation my skin would normally get during the day. Literally rub this into any pimples I get before bed and they are nearly gone by morning. Very soothing. It is rich. Press don't rub. It is essentially an soothing occlusive balm with minimal ingredients. If you don't like a dewy look or a facial balm this is not for you. For me this is a hug that my skin LOVES. People compare this to La Mer, but La Mer is FULL of unnecessary irritating ingredients and irritates my skin. This is an underrated product.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-06-17</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-06-17" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="219828815"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Maureen O</span> from <span itemprop="name">Creme Ancienne</span> <span itemprop="description">It&rsquo;s been my go-to night cream for years!

I emailed 3 times and never got a response (this was before COVID as an FYI). I tried calling but each time I got a message that said &ldquo;fresh dot com&rdquo; and hung up! So frustrated I just quit contacting. I wasn&rsquo;t charged for it but they were running a discount and I wanted it. Well forget it now. I found another brand less money that I&rsquo;m happy with. Fresh has amazing products but I can&rsquo;t deal with such poor service. Giving them one more chance but it&rsquo;s been a few weeks since I placed an order and nothing yet, not even communication to let me know it&rsquo;s delayed.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-04-27</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-04-27" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="" data-reviewid="218702724"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype=""> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Sammy1234</span> from <span itemprop="name">Very good to repair your skin</span> <span itemprop="description">I love this cream.

I have not received the prouct, but received the email to review this product. Apparently automatic emails work for product review but not so much for product delivery status. I absolutely love the Creme Ancienne soft cream, but given that this product is out of stock for months now I tried to order this version of the product. I am using the eye creme of the same style and it is the best eye cream I ever used. Hence I still gave it a great rting, but please FRESH get your ordering system up to date. This is the second time an order was cancelled without me ever being informed. If I can't rely on Fresh to receive products when I need them, then I have no choice but look for other options and I really love your products.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2020-01-24</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2020-01-24" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <!--begin-pagination--> <ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="">Cr&egrave;me Ancienne Reviews - page 2</a></li> </ul> <!--end-pagination--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2020, m_8, d_2, h_15</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.10</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_25, tr_21</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_H00005904, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=SUBMISSION_TIME, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_fresh</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display: none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, dw_cartridge, 18.2.0, p_sdk_3.2.0</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 9ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">reviews, product</li> </ul>
