Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse

Name: Nuxe 눅스 Huile Prodigieuse® 윌 프로디쥬스
Price: € 25.90 for 100 ml
Made in: France

Although I have been using beauty oils for a couple of years now, I am still relatively new to it. I have not dabbled in many brands (I tend to buy huge bottles that will last me forever) so I literally quivered in anticipation when I finally got around to uncap Huile Prodigieuse.

30% of the ingredients in this Nuxe bestseller is made up from a cocktail of six plant oils (Borage, St John's Wort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, Macadamia) and Vitamin E.

Like Caudalie's Huile Divine, Huile Prodigieuse is a multi-purpose blend of goodness for your face, body and hair. It nourishes the skin, leaves hair soft and shiny and has the additional beneficial effect of improving the overall appearance of stretch marks.

The only one downside to this oil is the scent. My nose cannot take the aroma well; there is something about it that my nose hates. Huile Divine smells rather glorious in comparison and I am not terribly keen on that scent in the first place. Some have suggested to utilise the oil as a perfume. It does not last as long as an EdP would, so constant reapplication throughout the day is needed for the smell to linger.

With similar properties and equivalent results, you should end up with whichever dry oil that beguiles you with its scent.

P.S.: Happy holidays! May your days be merry and bright as we welcome 2017.
