Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR


Nuxe is a luxurious French skincare brand with a wide range of natural products and you might have seen this oil pop up in my Summer Skin care routine post a good month back now. Today I’ll be reviewing the Huile Prodigieuse OR Golden Shimmer dry oil, a very luxurious oil indeed, and the perfect summer essential for tanned skin. This is the second Nuxe oil I’ve picked up in the past couple of months and this brand always surprises me with the quality and beauty of each product.

Details: Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR Dry Oil in Golden Shimmer


The great thing about Nuxe Hulie Prodigieuse OR is the fact it contains 98.2%Β natural ingredients and its super hydrating on the skin! The subtle shimmer really is gorgeous and if you have super pale skin like me this really adds colour to the skin and leaves a gorgeous glow. I think this would look even better against tanned skin to give a beautiful sun kissed look with the slight hint of shimmer to add definition. Alongside natural ingredients this dry oil also contains 30%Β precious plant oils and Vitamin E to nourish and repair the skin. The beauty behind this dry oil is the fact it has multiply uses, making your money go much further! I love applying it to the ends of my hair to combat dry ends and frizz, and it also adds multi dimensional colour and shine, when the sun hits my hair during the day.


Another great use for this oil is for mixing with your foundation, a great method if you suffer from dry skin as this will instantly hydrate whilst giving a gorgeous glow to the skin! It’s not so great for oily skin types like mine as it sits on the skin for a good while before drying in. You can apply this directly onto the face or body and it dries after a couple of minutes but not instantly! I do find it better being applied to the body as my skin just drinks it up instantly, but it doesn’t seem to work as great on my face, but that could be down to the fact I have oily skin. I can’t warn you enough that you need to apply this sparingly to the skin and hair, a little really does go a long way and if you over do it, you could end up with really greasy hair and wasting product.Β This is a great little remedy for preventing split ends and hydrating the skin and hair, it’s a all round essential for me! No matter what the season, this is something I’ll always make sure to repurchase as it’s perfect for doing everything in one.
I’m starting to get into tanning more, so currently using this to keep my skin moistured in-between tanning, but you can’t use this oil the day before re-applying your tan as cream formulas work much better, otherwise you could end up with an uneven tan. I always use this in the morning if I’m going to wear a dress or shorts, for a healthy glow and normally see myself switching between this and the Xen-Tan Scent Secure Gold. It’s far from sticky on the skin and you can wear your clothes straight after applying, normally I’d wait a good two-three minutes before getting dressed to stop transfer on white clothing. I can really notice a huge difference in my skin after using this for the past couple of weeks, it appears much more healthy, more toned and glowing. Packed full of natural ingredients I can see why this feeds the skin with essential vitamins and goodness, it’s also very soothing and softens the skin too!!


I must admit I was very hesitant about the price of this dry oil and found myself justifying the price and just feel happy I gave this luxurious oil a chance! I first noticed it stocked in Marks and Spencer’s and sampled the oil in store and since then I knew it was the next thing on my wish list. It was expensive so I did buy this online through Lookfantastic with discount, but saying that I would totally pay the full price after trying it out and it smells really nice too! It lasts hours and protects my skin from the environment, whilst keeping my legs super moistured and looking incredible. The best thing about the shimmer is the fact it looks completely natural and when applied to the skin it just gives a subtle glow to the skin without the shimmer particles being noticeable, no wonder high profile models love this!!

  • I’ve read great things about it, it sounds really good! I like the idea of mixing it with a foundation, it would give such a nice glow! xxx

  • I’ve read such great reviews about this and this is no exception! I saw it while I was over in France two months ago but coudln’t decide whether to pick it up, but I’m now kicking myself for no doing so, as Nuxe is so much cheaper over there. So happy M&S are now stocking it as I really want to try out their lip balm too πŸ™‚ x
