It is that time of the year that everyone starts to get dry skin of the heating system or the cold weather. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse is a product I’ve seen many times on Instagram and now it was time that I tried it out myself. This multifunctional oil can be used for the face, body and hair and can be applied in many ways. It really is an oil made for everyone! If you are still looking for a great dry oil, than you must read my review.
The brand Nuxe is a mix of the terms “nature” and “luxe”, they want to combine the best of both worlds! Nuxe had a great arrangement of face and body products that all have the signature dry oil fragrance. For them creating beautiful products with no paraben and mineral oils is the key to their plant based cosmetic line.
Every brand has it’s “hero product”, for Nuxe it is their Huile Prodigieuse that is standing in the spotlights. You might wonder why it has been so loved by everyone. To be honest, I was also curious what could be so great about a dry oil. As an oily girl (literally everything is oily about me) I try to avoid oils because my skin and hair is oily all the time.
I purchased the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse 50ml bottle which is a recent amount if you want to use it for your hair and body. You should know that this dry oil is super rich, so a small amount is enough. This multi functional dry oil can be used on the face, body and hair. It nourishes, repairs and makes the skin and hair look healthy when applied. Filled with 7 precious botanical oils this magic in a bottle is 100% natural ingredients. How to use it: press, warm it up between the hands and apply on desired part of the body. Don’t over use ut because the power of the dry oil will start to develop after application.
The fragrance is something special: is has this summery, botanical sensation. Like you are standing in a flower garden surrounded with honey and lots of sun on your head. When I sniff it, it makes me instantly energized.
Hair: I used it on wet hair first and it was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made, why you may ask? Because when you hair is damp you can’t really see what the oil will do for your hair. So me and my dump head applied almost 3 pumps of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil on my hair and after a few hours I noticed that my hair was still wet, because I applied too much oil! So I recommend to apply your dry oil when your hair is damp/dry so you can really feel how much oil you will need. Otherwise you will keep applying it because you may think it is not nourished enough. With other hair oils I do can see and feel when it is enough, but the dry oil works a bit different.
Face: I’ve read some reviews of people who like the apply their dry oil on a cotton pod and swipe it along their face. There are many ways to use the dry oil but I like to apply it as a night oil treatment. You only need a small amount, a half pump. Apply half the pump on your face and the rest on your neck and hands. Massage your skin and enjoy the amazing fragrance of all the botanical oils. Even tho I have an oily skin, I do like to apply my oils during the night.
Body: there I no wrong way to use the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil on your body! When it comes to my body I really like to avoid body butters and lotions, I just don’t like the sticky feeling it sometimes create on the skin. That’s why oils are a great way to nourish my arms and legs. My legs are super dry, sometimes you can even draw a white line on it. When using the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse I love to apply a few pumps in my hands, warming it up and then start to rub my whole body with it.
From all the things I prefer using the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse on my body because it doesn’t create a sticky feeling, it nourished the skin instantly and it adds a delicious fragrance to it. For my face and hair I like to use other products that are specially made for those areas, because when I use it on those places it doesn’t add something extra to the routine except for hydration.
If you struggle with dry skin especially during the colder days, I can recommend you to start using Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse! I love it for my dry body and it has a amazing fragrance, like you are standing in a flower garden during the summer. The 50ml is currently on sale for €12,50 so be fast if you still want to take advantage of this amazing offer.
