It might seem like a total beauty classic nowadays, but oddlyВ enough, Nuxe'sВ Huile Prodigiuese wasn't always thisВ iconic and loved-the-world-over body care staple thatВ we know it to be now.
In fact, back in 1992 when the founder Aliza JabГЁs first developed the formula in her small Parisian lab, French pharmacists laughed in her face. "It'll never work," they said (in French, obvs), and they mocked her efforts to put a luxury face on the natural skincare world. And the fact she thought anyone would want to slather themselves head to toe in a rich golden divine oil? Yeah, they thought that was pretty laughable too.
Still, JabГЁs stuck at it, and good job too, as fast-forward 25 years, andВ Huile Prodigiuese isВ now the best-selling all-purpose oil in France and is a mainstay on the UK's shelves too. It's so nourishing, you only need a little drop and suddenly frazzled hair becomes glossy again, dry shins are lacquered in an unbelievable sheen, and deflated cheeks look plump and almost juicy once more.
So how do youВ improve upon results like that? You make it richer of course. Enter NuxeВ Huile Prodigieuse Riche (ВЈ32), a super-charged version of the cult oil that I've seemingly developed a minor addiction to.В Scroll down to find out why.Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Riche $32Shop
So what's the difference? Well, the most notable one-and the reason my legs seem to be clinging onto its hydration for way longer than usual-is the increase of macadamia oil, the nourishing ingredient at the centre of the formulation. Its composition is as close as you can get to sebum, meaning it mimics the skin's natural hydratorsВ and is thereforeВ more easily absorbed. The rich version has 30% more than the original, which is a pretty major increase that you can really feel on the skin.В
There's also an extra ingredient you won't find on the bottle of the OG version: Tsubaki oil. This oil is made from the camellia flower and isВ really popular in Japan, where Geishas have used itВ in their skincare routines for centuries.В In this body oil, it's just another great hydrator to add to the roll-call of nourishing ingredients.
The texture is slightly different too and feels much more aligned with more traditional oil formulas: There's none of that slightly weird viscous feeling you get with the dry version. That does mean that it sits on the skin a little longer, and so you might have toВ wait it out for a few more minutes before you try and slide your jeans up your moisturized legs, but it's worth it, I swear.
It's great on dry, split ends (although avoid the roots as it's pretty heavy going) and the only downside is that unless you haveВ a super-flaky, dry complexion, it's probably best you avoid using this one on the face, as it might be a bit heavy and start to clog up pores. But in all honesty, I'm too busy slathering it up and down my limbs for my face to even get a look in.
Up next, don't look now but winter face is coming. Here's how to handle it.
