Nuxe Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse

This multi-usage dry oil illuminates the body creating an unparalleled glow, nourishes hair and soften and promotes cell regenerates the skin. The combination of plant oils is one of Parisian women’s best-kept secret.
One of the lovely highlights to this product is it can be mixed in with a moisturizer, lotion, facial cream or serum. It smells divine so you can use it as a dual product for skincare and fragrance. It has so many uses. I even mixed a small drop onto my beauty blender to create a soft dewy finish to my foundation and a strobing effect with cheekbone highlights.

Overview | I love this product. It is the perfect multi-use beauty product that saves so much space in a makeup kit. It’s an amazing skin primer because it absorbs so quickly but leaves softness behind. The St. John’s Wort calms the skin while the Sweet Almond oil moisturizes without leaving the skin to shiny or oily. As a body oil, it’s great for dry skin after yoga or swimming. It feels so smooth on the skin, you don’t feel greasy and you don’t have to worry about it transferring to clothing or surfaces.
