As the weather cools down, I find myself switching out my body, hair and skincare products to accommodate the colder weather. I also prefer warmer and creamier aromas that are somehow comforting and cozy during the fall and winter months. Among my favorite products, which I have happy used for many years, are the skin and body products from Luxe, and their Prodigieux range is truly covet-worthy.
NUXE Huile Prodigieux Shower Oil ($15.00-$23.00 for 6.7 oz. from NUXE, Amazon, and Look Fantastic): The aroma, which might be described as a warm nutty floral, is utterly delectable, and its rich and crazy aroma fills the bathroom and delights the senses.
NUXE Prodigieux Shower Oil is a lightly lathering and richly moisturizing cleanser that fills the senses with the most delectable rich and warm blend of sweet almond oil, orange blossom, magnolia and vanilla. It has a gorgeous quasi-iridescent glow from the golden pearls that impart a slight golden sheen to the skin. Skin is left hydrated, soft, supple and delicately fragranced.
It is nearly impossible to sufficiently underscore the extent to which the shower is transformed into the most intoxicating and luxurious sensory experience. The moment that the water blends with this gorgeous golden potion the scent bursts forth and transforms the experience of bathing to an experience that exceeds every expectation.
NUXE Huile Prodigieux Shower Oil is described as,
NUXE's cult-favorite Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil is now available in a luxe, shower oil formula. The best just got better.

NUXE Huile Prodigieux Dry Oil ($42.00 for 1.6 oz. from NUXE, Amazon, Look Fantastic and Cult Beauty): This is a delectable smelling dry oil that is formulated for use on the face, body and hair. The aroma, which might be described as a warm nutty floral, is utterly intoxicating. Huile Prodigieux is a multipurpose dry oil that nourishes, hydrates, softens and repairs dry skin and hair. It has a lightweight, fast absorbing texture that immediately transforms dry skin into soft, supple, nourished skin with pronounced luminosity. It leaves hair soft, silky smooth and shiny– while it tames frizz. I also find Huile Prodigieux particularly effective for dry hands, cuticles and feet, and for that reason I leave a bottle on my nightstand in order to use it nightly before falling asleep.
NUXE selected particularly nourishing plant and nut oils such as Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage, Sweet Almond, Camellia and St. John's Wort, because they efficiently nourish, repair and soften skin and hair.
