It's one of the most popular skincare products in France, an essential in the bathroom cupboard for every woman. So what is all the hype about?

After attending a media session for these products I could not believe how impressed I became with these products. I had never tried them before but I was dying to give it a go once I learned of what a cult classic product it is in Europe and all the amazing benefits, not to mention the incredible ingredients that it is made with. We are going to be looking into this miracle product as well as the bronzing oil, a result of the original Huile Prodigieuse.
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse
The basis of this product is that it is a multi-usage dry oil that does pretty much everything; nourishes, repairs, softens the skin and reduces stretch marks. It can be used all over the face and body for the reasons just listed but also on the hair for shine and fragrance. It is made from a mixture of 6 different plant oils; macadamia, hazelnut, borage, sweet almond, camellia and St John's Wort. It is also enriched in Vitamin E and completely silicone and preservative free. What I personally use this oil for is when my face has that uncomfortable tight feeling if I have been using too any drying products on my skin and this instantly replenishes moisture and nourishes. If you have oily skin then there is no need to worry because this will not make matters worse at all, in fact it will do much more good. I had the same concern when I started using this product because although I have normal skin, I actually dealt with severe oil imbalances for a lot of my early teenage years. I was worried that if I started slathering my face with this stuff, my oily skin would come back. I'm happy to say that it definitely didn't increase my oil production but instead left my skin soft, supple, moisturised and radiant.  This product retails for $39.99 and it comes in a 100ml bottle.

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or
This product was an afterthought once the original oil found much success. It contains the same incredible properties and ingredients as the original yet if also obtains an absolutely gorgeous bronzed glitter throughout it. It is absolutely packed with the gorgeous golden particles that give the most beautiful shimmer that looks especially amazing over a tan because it really enhances the bronze. This is definitely a Summer essential and adds a warm reflect to the legs perfect for a night out or beach day where you might be getting some dinner afterwards. I have tried numerous brands of this type of product and Nuxe is by far my favourite because of how smooth and thin the texture is and how it immediately soaks into the skin. Also, due to all the amazing healing properties I don't feel guilty slathering myself in it like I do with the MAC Bronze Oil where I'm not too sure what is in it. This product retails for $29.99 and it comes in a 50ml bottle.
Both of these products are available from Priceline and other pharmacies, often times you can catch them on sale. I can not recommend these oils enough, they are the ultimate beauty essential and a must have for under every bathroom sink or beauty cabinet.
