I've become that person who is obsessed with oils; as soon as I get home I wash my face and then slather it in a selected oil, only to repeat head to toe before popping off to bed. Yes I go to bed slightly greasy and my skin loves me for it. I have slowly grown to love the texture of not only facial oils but also those for the body. If thicker oils are not for you for whatever reason, then I fully recommend dry oils and no brand offers a better formulation than Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oils.
As you may be aware the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oils are available in two options: one shimmer based and one regular oil but the base and fragrance are exactly the same. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oils contain a blend of six plant oils (borage, St Johns wort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut, and macadamia) and vitamin E, all of which nourish, repair, soften and hydrate the skin. Nuxe oils are considered to be dry oils, this simply means that they are lightweight, non-greasy and quickly absorbed. Despite the luxurious feel you may be pleased to learn Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oils start at just £17.
Let's start with the original shall we? Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil is a light golden elixir of plant oils and Vitamin E which come together to create a beautifully hydrating, apply everywhere, light oil that instantly resolves dehydration. The beauty of this oil is that it can literally be used anywhere, on the body, in the hair and on the face. If ever there was a perfect, speedy post beach or summer vacay treatment, it this oil. Simply mist on, gently massage in and watch it work it's magic. As it is an oil, it can, if used regularly improve the appearance of stretchmarks and help prevent new lines from appearing. Dry skin all but disappears, skin feels and looks smoother, all with a beautiful glow come sheen effect from the first application. On the hair I do recommend a less is more approach, especially if using on dry hair to seal the ends and add a little extra shine. On wet/damp hair this not only adds extra hydration but it can add a little extra slip to aid the removal of hair knots. I will admit that the fragrance is a little on the strong side, so those with sensitive skin may want to avoid applying to the facial area, otherwise mist on until your heart is content.
If all of the above sounds alluring but perhaps you want a little extra pizazz? Then you need Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil Or; the same beloved formulation but with a huge dose of beautiful golden flecks. Not only does this oil moisturise and smooth but it adds a wonderful golden glow to the skin. Yes it is packed with shimmer particles, however rather than creating an obvious, glitter effect - Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil Or gently warms the skin tone and diffuses a lit within glow. It goes without saying that the bronze tone of this oil enhances a tan, natural or otherwise and adds a halo of light to all hair tones. Due to the shimmer effect I don't typically recommend this for facial use, I personally save it for evening use to elongate limbs and channel my inner Victoria Secret Model (a gal can dream huh?). Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil may be the Summer skin saviour but Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil Or is the product to help prolong Summer memories and tans.
If you have yet to be converted to face and body oils, I urge you to try one of the above Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oils - it may be what sways your opinion forever.
