Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or (Golden Shimmer) Dry Oil

Not enough Nuxe? We feel ya...Well, it simply isn’t summer without shimmer. For those steamy, strappy nights, consider Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or ($55) – a racier version of the classic body oil without the gaudiness of 80s glitter. It's so delicately colored, intensely moisturizing, and richly sweet that it is bound to command attention. So, how does it differ?

The quality rivals its predecessor, as it, too, contains savory plant oils. Six to be exact. The heart of the huile is Macadamia Seed oil, preferred for its distinctive feature of resembling skin’s own sebum. This replication of the natural oils for the body & scalp makes the oil an ideal enriching, replenishing & fast absorbing agent. Yes, you can slick this oil onto tailored ponytails, bringing a wispy iridescence to tresses when flicked. The combination of Sweet Almond, Hazel, Olive Fruit, Camellia and Sunflower oils marry their vibrant mineralities and sheer textures to make for an accented treatment. Yet, interlaced within the oil are two complementary extracts: Rosemary Leaf extract, a natural antioxidant that strengthens skin elasticity and slows the aging process; Tomato Leaf extract, a vital essence which balances the pH of your skin. And like the original, that very same bewitching but elusive scent (possibly a dewy white floral) still tickles the fancy.

The charming eye of the bronze color comes from the finest spliced mica you’ll find in any beauty product. No chunks of mismatched glint here. The oils spreads easily and highlights the decollete, arms and even cheeks leaving a satine luster. For decades, French women have been layering this glossy oil onto their legs to elongate their willowy figures. Tanner skins will adore skin’s golden depth as the glimmer dims slowly, allowing you to skip the stockings.

Colour me happy with this prodigious oil!
