Review: Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

This item is one of the popular 'must-have' items should one visit any french pharmacies in France. Due to its immense popularity, it is pretty obvious that I must give it a try, especially when I am a lover of oils.

My Experience

This oil is housed in a nice limited edition glass bottle with a spray nozzle. This looked quite luxurious actually and would make any dressers looked lovely and elegant.

Though it says that it is suitable for face, I used this mostly for my body and hair. For my body, I use this right after my shower as oils usually absorbs well on damp skin.( Not wet ) True as it says, this is indeed a dry oil as it absorbs very quickly, leaving my skin feeling nice and comfortable. Unlike the MVO Anti-Aging Body Oil or the Weleda Body Oil, this Nuxe Oil does not make your skin sticky or oily at all. If I need to compare, Nuxe Huile is deemed more suitable for our weather condition ( perfect for summer ), where else, MVO Body Oil and Weleda is more suitable for colder weather because it is quite 'heavy'.

On hair, this needs to be applied only on hair ends after blow drying your hair. I love this because it does not weigh down my hair at all and tames my hair ends well. Love it!

About the scent, this oil smells strongly of jasmine. I am sitting on a fence here as I usually do not like heavily scented oils but strangely, this oils seems to prep me well before I go to sleep. My hubs like the scent and well....I am ok with it I guess.

Overall

This oil is good to have, should you like any multi purpose products but for me, it is not a must have item. It is good if you like your skin to be grease free and personally, I find this suitable for our weather condition is Malaysia. Overall, this oil does help in maintaining moisture of your skin in air-conditioned rooms and helps to tame and condition your hair ends well.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.

  1. I am obsessed with this dry oil. So much so, I bought my mother and mother-in-law bottles for Christmas last year. However, I have gone completely organic last month and have just started weening out toiletries and cosmetics. Any comments on the chemical content of Nuxe?

    1. If you are a organic purist, this oil may not be what you are looking for as it does contain other non organic compounds. I don't have much issue on this but I won't repurchase as there are other good quality ones out in the market.
