Nuxe – Shimmering Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse® OR

Online Description:

The sensual shimmering dry oil version of Huile Prodigieuse® contains tiny shimmering mineral particles.

It nourishes, softens and illuminates skin and hair in one go. It has a unique, non-greasy feel and

a captivating fragrance.

This golden shimmer dry oil version has become a cult beauty product as fast as the original dry oil version! NUXE Paris stays #1* oil in pharmacies in France.


My Thoughts:

Let me start off by saying that the product (oil) itself is great, but the packaging, it a nightmare. It doesn’t spray out evenly, it leaks product out of the nozzle (see picture below), and the bottle can’t even be repurposed when it’s empty. It makes me sad that all that glass and metal adds to the waste problem in this country and there’s no way to recycle it, either. I got fed up with that pesky nozzle quickly and moved all that I could into an old tear dropper bottle from Perricone MD so it would be easier to apply with a more precise dispense. Now, the oil itself is simply luxurious! It feels so amazing on my skin leaving it silky smooth without that greasy feeling that other oils cause. No one would call me ‘tan’, but it does give the illusion of one with a gorgeous shimmer to my skin after I’ve applied it and it has dried. Oh, that’s another annoying thing! When I use my hands to massage the product into my skin, it looks like I murdered a unicorn (glitter bombed). This problem is an easy hand wash to fix it, but still a nuisance nonetheless. For those who self-tan, this works great when applied 24 hours after a tan application, but I don’t recommend in it on the hair as the company suggests. The oil is too heavy and the shimmer is too overpowering which results in my hair looking greasy and being weighed down, not to mention it’ll clog the heck out of the pores on my scalp. It separates so make sure to give it a good shake before applying it.
