I am a big fan of this dry oil.
I use it on my skin, but not my face or hair, when just out of the shower. The oil has a light pleasant fragrance that is not over powering. The shimmer works well with my skin tone (more olive in summer) and the result is a nice subtle glow. Perfect for the evening. I can't wait to take it on holiday with me but am a little concerned about how to pack the glass bottle for travel!
Let's start with the disclaimer - generally I love Nuxe products and have tried a whole lot of them. But this one for me is a total disaster. A waste of money (and hopes). Does not do any of the things it says it does. If I put it on my hair, even the smallest bit, the hair gets the look of never washed, oily and lifeless. If I put it on my skin, it glows unpleasantly, leaves glimmering parts on my clothes, and if the weather is hot, gets like dirt-effect. Oils my palms every time i touch my skin where I've applied it. A big no-no. Still trying to overcome the price and throw it in the trash anyway.
I just got this in the mail and was excited to try it on my already tan summery skin. It goes on beautifully! The dry oil gives a nice soft sheen to the skin while the bronze, gold particles really gives your skin the sexy victoria's secret model glow it deserves. It smells like summer gardens and cocoa butter which I like. I could compare it to the Nars bronzing oil..but I think I like the nuxe better (since it has better ingredients).
Have been using this product for about 5 years and keep repurchasing. Good quality non oily shimmer oil. GIves an amazing effect to any skin tone, emphasizes tan on darker skin and creates a glow for lighter all this without the specs of gold looking glittery on skin. Have also been using it on my hair for evening dos, looks just as good. Moisturizes and conditions skin very well without any oily feel, absorbs quickly. Scent is quite unusual and does take time to get used to, to me it smells of stale cocoa powder mixed with rose water. The bottle is nice and would look pretty on any dressing table. The bottle does not leak which makes it easy to carry around and apply when needed. Happy with the product and would definitely repurchase.
This is my summer staple. It gives a gorgeous light shimmering sheen on skin and I also use it on my hair ends. I'm not a fan of the smell, could be better.
This imparts the lovliest glow, but the smell...this awful smell...drives me insane. It a scent you don't mind if you sniff once, but becomes absolutely repulsive at sniff two. Couldn't imagine smelling like this all day, and I'm someone that usually loves coconutty-tropical scents (hawaiin tropic is my favorite). Perhaps its the nuttiness that makes it so bad? It does wonders for enhancing a tan though, which is why I only use it on my legs: makes them look great and they're conveniently located far, far away from my nose.
Love this! The original version is my HG product and now i'm the proud owner of this babe aswell! Does everything the original version does and on top of this, it has a lovely golden shimmer. Even though the oil appears to be extremely dark-coloured and shimmery on the package, don't be afraid, it isn't. It doesn't add colour to your skin and the shimmer is actually very subtle. I'm a freak when it comes to products with shimmer cause i detest the "disco ball" look but this one just gives my -tanned- skin a gorgeous golden glow(you might wanna avoid it if you want the shimmer to be actually noticable). I do agree, however, that it might not look as good on very fair skin tones, so try to get a sample of it before purchasing. Also, the scent is much more discreet and warmer comparing to the original one. BUT, i removed 1 lippie cause i just HATE the packaging which is not practical at all. Like another reviewer said, you have to treat it like ketchup and constantly hit the bottom of the bottle with your palm till you get the amount you want. On the original version, the product just flows nicely but this one is just annoying. I wish there was a pump or a spray for this version. Costs 24.5Euro for 50ml (the normal version costs 18.5Euro for 50ml) but it's not that expensive considering that you only need to use a very small amount of product each time. Very happy with it and i'll definately repurchase :)
Non shimmery -
Smells wonderful, like a fresh summer day. But not floral at all, just special. It's great when you want a on-the-go body lotion, but don't like to carry anything heavy. This is a MUST in my summer purse. A little goes a long way with this, and your legs will never look dry!
I have the shimmery version. It's like fluent gold, extremely beautiful. Take a big part of body lotion and a few drops of this and you get a nice slight shimmery lotion. Recommended.
I´m a pale blonde and this product isn`t multi-purpose for me. On my skin it moisturizes well but leaves an almost dirty-looking sheen. For girls with darker skin types the shimmer would surely look fantastic and golden as it is meant to be. However, applied (in small amounts) on the dry lengths of my hair this works great, nurtures, helps against tangles and intensifies the color, leaving my hair wonderfully shiny.
The spray flacon is perfect for that purpose.
Nevertheless the price is ridiculous and I won`t buy again.
I LOVE this multi-purpose oilwith golden shimmer! It's perfect for everything - as a foundation primer, suitable for face/body/hair... you can really use it a lot, it just takes some imagination.
It is quite expensive for only 50ml (40$), but I love the bottle design, the way it smells, the way that golden shimmer looks on my face/body/hair so it's just something that I must have. :D
I don't like the packaging though, it's not the best for this kind of oil and shimmer, but, what can you do when you love something like this? :D
