I love the smell of the oil!!! I've got it on right now and I can smell it, so the fragrance lingers on the body for a while. I got this as I wanted the free shipping and handling so added this product into the cart and I love it. I apply this after a shower and it dries/absorbs straight into the skin without feeling sticky and oily. It leaves a lovely sheen to the skin and skin feels so smooth. I only use it on my body, as any oil applied to my hair will make my hair instantly greasy (I have an oily scalp anyways so adding more oil will worsen it).I will repurchase but only when Im ordering from that particular website and want free shipping. Its not my HG but so near!

Update 8 September 2008: It looks like they have replaced the cyclomethicone in this with isopropyl isosterate. The rest of the ingredients have changed somewhat too, with the addition of more types of oils. The new formula will have a gold top (like the gold oil) and on the front of the bottle a green box will say "formule suractivée" on it. The OLD ingredients:Cylomethicone, octyldodecanol, caprylic/capric triglyceride, isodecyl neopentanoate, isononyl isononanoate, hypericum perforatum (hypericum perforatum extract), prunus dulcis (sweet almond oil), ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (octinoxate), camelia oleifera(camellia oleifera extract), borago officinalis (borage seed oil), butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, parfum (fragrance)tocophenol.The NEW ingredients: Isopropyl Isostearate, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil*, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Dicaprylyl Ether, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Corylus Avellana Nut Oil/Corylus Avellana (Hazel) Seed Oil, Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, Tocopherol, Borago Officinale Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinale (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hypericum Perforatum Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Linalool [N1005/D]. Love the product, hate the packaging. I use it straight on my face as night cream in the summer and on my body I mix a few drops with another lotion. It also tames hair frizzies and I put it on my ends when they are dry. You don't get a lot of oil for your money but a little goes a long way. The glass bottle can slip, so you have to develop your on tactic for how you apply. The small bottle lasts me about 4 months with daily use on my face and intermittent use on my body and hair. I don't buy the big bottle because I feel the pump clogs and you can't get the last dregs out the way you can with the little one.This isn't a miracle product but it comes close. Still gets five lippies despite crappy packaging because of quality of the product. The updated formula sans silicones makes it that much better. I have noticed no change in manner of use with the updated formula.

I love the look and feel of body oil, but sometimes it's just too much. This stuff to the rescue! What a delight to use. All the benefits of body oil without any of that sometimes greasy feel...

I'm not absolutely bowled over by this product but it is very pretty over tanned skin in summer. It provides a very light level of moisturisation, but I suspect many buy it more for the 'gleam' than as a heavy duty emmolient. The one thing I really love about it is the smell! I know, I know, others have hated the smell (but then I hate practically every packaged perfume on the planet - apart from Anais Anais - so I suspect my nose works rather differently from most people), but this smell reminds me of years ago and sunbathing in my teens. Was it Bergasol or Piz Buin that used to smell like this stuff?...one of the two, anyway it transports me staight back to being 16 - bliss!

This is a wonderful, multi-purpose product. It's fantastic as a moisturizer for face and body, and I also like to use it sparingly on the ends of my hair (on its own, or mixed with a small dab of Frederick Fekkai Glossing Cream). It smells absolutely divine. I have a large mister size of the plain, and a smaller size of the shimmer version, and both are wonderful.

I think this is a very expensive item for what you get, however, it does contain some precious oils and a little goes a long way. The scent, I have learned to love. It does, indeed, as one writer put it, smell like Southern France in the summer. I doubted the moisturizing ability from a 'dry' oil, however, this keeps my poor winter hands soft and silky for most of the day, in spite of repeated hand washings. I received this as a GWP but I believe I will purchase this when it runs out.

I had been using Decleor's Neroli oil for quite some time, and while I love Decleor oils, I hate hate the steep price tags. I discovered this oil accidently, and decided to give it a try (especially since there was a GWP being offered at the time). Well, I love it, dare I say, more than the Decleor...I find that it absorbs perfectly into my skin. I also like to mix it with my body lotion, and it does a great job of giving a healthy shine to my hair. Best of all, I can just pop it into my bag and take it with me wherever I go. Fantastic multi-usage product.

I have this oil, as well as the monoi oil from Hei Poa. For those who think the smell of Nuxe is bad, you should try Hei Poa..it's much worse!!! But Nuxe is a very light oil, and even though I am oily-skinned, it agrees with me! It's a great substitute for my creams and lotions and great for summer when I can splash it on anywhere!Might want to try the shimmer one now!

I am in love with this product. It really is multipurpose. For the past week I've applied it everywhere...as a light body moisturizer after the bath, on my face to soothe any dry patches, and in my hair to add some gloss and softness. I'm a fan of oils in general, but I've never used one that worked as an all over treatment - literally! Like all "dry" oils, it sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy film. Light floral/herbal smell...kind of hard to describe, but it's very "spa" type of scent. Mildly aromatherapeutic. Pricey, but well worth the splurge. I'm beginning to love the Nuxe skincare/bodycare line. Their products are all agreeing with me :D

I think this scent is just overwhelming. But it can help me with my dry patches on my arms. It is a little too oily consistency, too.
