The Clueless Girl's Guide To Dry Oil

You apply it on what?!

When you hear "dry oils" or "dry body oils," what comes to mind? Is it the stuff that makes models shiny and slick in outdoor photoshoots? Is it the panghilot variety that your lola uses to cure every ache?

Those are totally different. Unlike garden variety body oils you can buy in grocery stores or wet markets, dry oils like Huile Prodigieuse Or by NUXE are luxurious moisturizing solutions that are meant for everyday use.

Use it to moisturize.

Replace your lotion or creams with dry oil. Slather it all over your body post-shower when your skin is still damp, and let its plant-based ingredients soften your skin without leaving a sticky, greasy feeling. It truly saves the day, especially when you're dealing with dryness. 

Use it to nourish your hair.

Either apply dry oil all over your scalp for a deep-conditioning treatment pre-shower (rinse it off after an hour), or use a small amount on your hair tips to keep split ends at bay. 

Use it to prep for makeup.

Apply a bit of dry oil as a primer—it hydrates your skin, providing a smooth canvas for your makeup application. Want a dewy look? Use it alone, and let your skin breathe on those no-makeup days!

Use it to smell great.

Place a little oil on your pulse points, or where you usually spritz perfume. It’ll make your scent last longer, promise!

Huile Prodigieuse Or by NUXE contains a concentrate of natural plant oils (borage, St John’s wort, almond, camellia, hazelnut, and macadamia) that are packed with powerful antioxidants and vitamin E.

Basically, you can use it as an all-in-one solution to dry skin and damaged hair. Bonus: The unique shimmer of its gold and bronze pearly particles is precisely the reason why we chose it as the Best Body Shimmer in our Cosmo Beauty Awards. Trust us—you’ll get insta-bronzed goddess vibes with just one use!
