As we are going in to the summer months, I do try and make an effort with my tanning routine. Especially if my legs are going to be out! I’ve actually discovered a couple of pretty amazing products which I’ve added into my tanning routine. Today’s post is all about the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse which isn’t really a brand new discovery. This product is award winning and cult favourite for many people but it’s taken me a while jump on the bandwagon.
I thought it would be a good opportunity to do a little bit of a product review on the blog. It actually took me a couple of years to understand the hype so I thought it would be a good idea to share my thoughts. I got the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse from Notino.co.uk. There is actually a few different dry oil variations available but the one I picked up was the illuminating shimmer. The product is scented with a mix of orange blossom and vanilla.
The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse claims to be a multi-purpose dry oil with brightening, nourishing and moisturising features. Overall, I was pretty apprehensive about using a dry oil as I thought it would get all over the place and make a bit of a mess, especially with shimmer been involved. It can get quite messy as there isn’t a proper applicator on the bottle. You just have to be careful at how much product you pour out. I’ve found that the best way to do it is to use a large make-up brush.
The oil can be used all over from your body, face and even you hair. I use it on my arms, legs and chest. The shimmer in the oil gives you a wonderful bronzed glow perfect for Summer. It’s the perfect product to use if you’re getting dressed up for a night out or special occasion and want to look pretty radiant. The product can also be used by adding a few drops into your foundation. However, I’d only recommend the tiniest amount!
I’ve not actually tried it on my hair as I can see it going horribly wrong and making my hair look quite greasy. It is recommended for dry ends so maybe I should try a tiny amount. Otherwise, it would be a great product to add a lot of shimmer if you were applying glitter to your hair for a festival or an event.
As I said it’s not the easiest product to work with. You fingers can end up like golden glitter balls if you aren’t careful. Using a make-up brush to buffer out the shimmer is well advised and you can look like a bronzed goddess! I have the 100ml bottle but a little certainly goes a long way and 100ml will last a very long time.
Have you used this product before? Do you use dry oil?
