Nuxe 'Huile Prodigieuse', natural dry oil for skin and hair.

I am late to the party with Nuxe ‘Huile Prodigieuse’.

I was first given a bottle last summer, by a very lovely friend who had spent a happy lost afternoon in the Paris department store BHV. A shop it is very easy to lose hours – even days in…

French women have been enjoying Nuxe oil, enriched with nourishing Tsubaki oil, since 1991. Some 20 million bottles later, it is the  number 1 selling oil in French pharmacies.

I use the oil in my hair instead of Argan oil. Before I put on moisturiser, I use it on the dry areas of my face, neck and décolletage (that bit above where my breasts – used! – to be).

If I close my eyes when I shake the drops into the palm of my hand, the oil’s scent, a blend of orange blossom, magnolia and vanilla, transports me to summer…in the south of France. Which is a very welcome journey on cold winter mornings.

Where to begin with the uses of this magical little product? Here are the three that I have tried – and loved.

Use on its own – or mixed with your usual skin product – on your face.

Apply to your hair after washing – before drying.

To give tired hair a boost, coat in dry oil, leave for 10 minutes – then shampoo out.

There are no nasties in Nuxe oil. It is free from preservatives, silicone and mineral oils.

In their place are 7 precious botanical oils: Tsubaki, Macadamia and Argan oils to nourish, Almond oil to soften, Camellia oil to moisturise, Borage oil to battle wrinkles, Hazelnut oil to soothe.

Nuxe oil is like a hug in a bottle. And if French women swear by it – then we probably should too.

I may have to buy the next bottle of Nuxe oil for myself…but, I consider that more of an investment. Like paying into a pension pot for my face.
Hopefully, my accountant will agree…
