Skin Care

By Kimberly McDonald


Leave it to the French to take a stuffy term like prodigious and turn it into a sensual experience. Or, let’s say, leave it to the French folks at Nuxe.

You’ve probably heard or read about their Huile Prodigieuse Or, the shimmering dry oil with gold shimmer of J-Lo and multiple other celebrities fame. If you’ve ever tried it, you’re probably a fan. It gives a grown-up sheen to sunkissed summer skin, and keeps bare legs looking better than silk stockings. But have you ever tried its plain-Jane predecessor? Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (no Or) is the must-have multi-purpose product for fall.

This luscious dry oil can be used on the face and body, hair and skin. Applied after a bath or shower, it locks in moisture without leaving your skin feeling greasy. The satin-smooth finish not only keeps you glowing, but it also protects your skin and hair from the elements. Because the oils used in these products are so fine, they absorb immediately. The creators of Huile Prodigieuse combine ingredients that include Borage Oil, for antioxidant properties, and Sweet almond and Camellia Oils, for moisture and subtle fragrance.

You might not take a shine to the idea of putting an ‘oil’ all over, but give it a try. This product deserves its place among the must-haves for your beauty cabinet. Prodigious is quite a name to live up to! And the huile does that just right.
