This is considered one of the best French Beauty Products and I understand why...

This lightweight, dry oil is perfect to use all over your face, hair and body. It is an expensive product, but a little goes a long way!

I have the small bottle (50 ml) and have used it at least 3 times a week for almost two years. Bear in mind, I use about a coin-size amount in my hand for my face then rub the remainder on the ends of my hair, to combat frizz, then into my hands and elbows.

It has a lovely, spicy fragrance to it. If you adore the smell as much as I do, they have a perfume too, specifically created because women liked the oil's scent.

Pros
- Subtle, spicy fragrance
- Multi-purpose: can be used for hair, body and face
(which is always a win to me; saves you some time, money and travel space)
- Created from natural oils, can be used on all skin-types
- Lasts long

Cons
- Expensive
- The small bottle does not have a spray nozzle, so you have to be careful when pouring

I usually apply this before my moisturiser in the mornings, especially in winter or as a night cream. It has not caused any breakouts or irritated my skin whatsoever. I have found that I am able to apply it to my eczema without any concerns.

I add a little bit to the ends of my hair and sometimes I will add a few drops to aqueous cream for a scented moisturiser which I layer with the Nuxe perfume for long-lasting fragrance.

Love this - such a lovely scent and leaves skin silky smooth.
Probably too oily for my face (I have oily skin) but a little goes a long way on the body.
Brilliant body moisturiser

I had tried a generous sample and bought a 30ml bottle as I loved the scent. Moisturises my body lovely without feeling heavy or oily and leaves it soft. I also use it on my face at night over my moisturiser to lock in more moisture, also great and sometimes I might run the tiniest bit through my hair for some sheen. Very happy with it and it was dirt cheap, I think I purchased it for 9 euros from a greek pharmacy online.

I absolutely love this oil, i use it on my face daily. I have ageing skin (im 46) and quite dry, but with this my face becomes so soft, luminous and glowy... Smells beautiful... Takes a while to sink in so i wouldn't recommend make up straight on top. I cant stop touching my skin.. It was so dry!.. Ill always buy this now.
I did try it on my hair, which was the original purpose i bought it for, as i love hair oils, but it made my hair quite greasy (i used it pre-shampoo), which other hair oils don't do.
So i wouldn't recommend for hair, though mine is on the fine and greasy side anyway and i might have applied too much, but only as much as i do with my other oils, such as Elvive Extrodinary Oil for hair.
But for face i love! I imagine its fab for body too but i don't want to waste it!!!

i also received this as a gift with purchase. The first Nuxe product for me. The smell is strong close up but quite plesant in small amounts. I do not like the open top as you spill it everywere trying to get a drop or two. I am used to a bottle and dropper so found this really awkward and messy to use. I have put some in a small dropper bottle to use. I use a drop on my dry lips at night and mix two/three drops in my hand cream where it works well and smells great at night Also a small amount in the bath water leaves your skin soft and you relaxed at night
Would i purchase it again. the answer is no as it is not easy to use in its bottle If nuxe brings out a new package with a dropper it would be a stapple in my beauty routine

I received a small bottle of this as a gift with purchase and I’ve been using it off and on for about 6 months now, it’s honestly leaving me feeling “meh”. I dislike the bottle because it has an open top which requires me to pour the oil out and I always make a mess when doing this. It is so wasteful it drives me crazy. As others have mentioned, this is a “dry” oil and therefore does not leave a greasy feel behind when using which is the probably the best thing I can say about it. I have long, wavy/curly, medium thick hair, and a LOT of it so am always looking for products that will infuse moisture or add shine to my hair. I have used this on primarily the ends of my hair to seal them and then I run my hands along my hair to add a glossy shine to it. The oil is okay but not my favorite for hair or skin care. I will use it up eventually, because I just don’t reach for it all that often, but I won’t purchase it.

This oil is heaven. I bought about 6 months ago because of reviews. At the time I wasn't crazy about it.. on its own it's mediocre. But recently I brought it into use again after a particularly punishing winter in a desperate attempt to revive my skin. And OMG... wow!! My skin feels like silk. I use it as a body oil, mixed with Sukin body lotion. For every pump of lotion, I mix 2 pumps of Nuxe. I mix the together in my hand then apply. After about 2 weeks of daily use my whole body feels softer than it has in ten years. I don't rate it as a face or hair oil, there are better products (see Hello Hair, that stuff is amazing). But as a body oil mixed with Sukin... seriously, give it a go! As a bonus, it will make your self tan wear a million times better too! Thank me later :)

I should mention firstly that this product smells amazing. It is a good oil, I use it on the evening on my face when it feels dry and in the morning magic happens and it becomes hydrated and dewy. I would not recommend it for hair purposes, even thou I have very dry hair it makes it oily really fast. Overall it is a good product for skin, but not for hair.

As much as I love the smell, I hate the fact that the staying power on my oily skin is essentially minimal. But I dont really care cause this scent is my favorite. I also have the Or one, it has a lot of gold glitter particles, that will stay for long on you. So apply with care, cause you ll end up looking all shiny. I only use those oils on my body, there arent really hydrating. I havent tried it on my hair, when I do, I ll edit my review.

Mine is about to end and I'm already crying over my small, small bottle. It's absolutely heavenly for me - the scent is marvellous and with it, I've found love in dry oil form. I usually use it after a shower or before going out, to be extra soft. I also do use it in my hair (a small amount, of course) and it tames my messy waves wannabe curls and leave so me with manageable, soft hair. It's real pricey here in Brazil, but like... definitely recommended.
