Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Purpose Dry Oil review

With one of my online purchases I received I got a couple of samples of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, the renowned dry oil for whatever you want, face, body or hair. 

What I liked about the product is its faint but nice floral smell. However, the fragrance masks the smell of sunflower oil, which I find repulsive, only for a couple of minutes. When applied on my face it absorbed quickly and made my face feel soft without turning my oily skin into an oilslick. If someone gave me this oil for free this is how I would use it.

I enjoyed using the product but still I can't understand the hype.
In blind testing I wouldn't see a difference (apart from the smell) between this one and a light baby oil my sons used to have.
It sinks in quickly and moisturises well just as any other oil does.
On my very dry hair it looked all right (just like my L'Oreal Mythicd Oil does) but did not repair my hair in any way.
The golden version might be of some interest for me as a body oil for the summer, but this one is overpriced and overhyped

  1. I'm glad you did a review of this. I got a sample of the eye cream a while back and fell in love with it because of he scent. However, I couldn't find a perfume version of it. The eye cream was too pricey to buy just to smell alone so I decided I might get the oil version since it was cheaper. But I had no idea what it was for.

    1. I think getting this thing for the scent only would be such a waste of money as it evapporates pretty soon and the smell of sunflower oil gets really prominent, to my nose at least, cause I really don't like this particular smell and I seem to be oversensitive to it.
