The “Huile Prodigieuse” by Nuxe comes in a transparent square-shaped glass bottle with dark brown inscriptions on it. The lid is gold and the oil in the bottle which is gold-toned is reflected on the transparent bottle. There is no dispenser nozzle, so the product is difficult to apply hassle-free.
This product by Nuxe also exists as “Huile Prodigieuse Or.” A version of the dry oil with shimmers that can also be used on the face, body, and hair. It has a satin and sparkly but non-greasy finish. The “Huile Prodigieuse Or” adds radiance and can accentuate a summer tan on the skin. On the hair, it makes it look shinier- especially when the sun reflects on it.

There are many ways you can use this product: you can apply the dry-oil directly on the face or body and/or you can add some oil to your moisturizer, lotion or foundation before applying it on the face. The “Huile Prodigieuse” can also be used on the hair as a pre-wash oil mask, or after hair styling on the ends to avoid dryness and to tame frizz.
We tested the “Huile Prodigieuse” on the hair, face, and the body. We found that the product is non-greasy and has a matte and dry finish. The “Huile Prodigieuse” had both a hydrating and nourishing effect.
On the face, it added a glow to dull and tired skin and allowed for quick moisturization. On the body, especially the legs, the “Huile Prodigieuse” countered the drying effects of the weather and added radiance to the skin.
We also tested the product on the hair. As a pre-wash mask, the product gave the hair suppleness and made it more luscious. When applied to the ends of the hair, the “Huile Prodigieuse” hydrated dry ends very thoroughly and allowed the split ends to be less visible.
If used as a pre-wash hair mask, we recommend the product to be washed with cool or cold water because in some cases it can add greasiness to oily hair. However, overall, this product works very well, and is a convenient travel companion because it does the job of multiple beauty products.
The “Huile Prodigieuse” retails at an average price of $30/50 mL or $52/100 mL which is cheaper than other products delivering similar effect such as Tarte’s “Maracuja Oil” which sells at $48/50 mL and Bobbi Brown’s “Extra Face Oil” which retails at $70/30 mL.
