If you're constantly chasing that certain je ne sais quoi that all French girls seem to have, one of the easiest ways to get it is with French pharmacy staples. Look, that's what beauty and fashion editors at In The Know and everywhere else have been doing for decades.
Luckily, you don't have to actually hop on a pricey transatlantic flight for the goods anymore. Amazon now sells a ton of everyone's favorite French girl products for you to indulge in. One of the absolute best is the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil.
Formulated with a unique combination of seven different botanical oils and vitamin E, the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil leaves your skin soft and silky in a single step, while your hair is left with amazing shine
Before diving right in with the application, NUXE suggests that you first warm the oil up in your hands. Then, gently massage it over your face and/or body for a nourished and silky-smooth finish. If you're stressed about it feeling too oily, don't be. The subtly dry feel means that it absorbs into the skin almost immediately upon application. So, yes, you can even use it in the summer.
If using it as a hair oil, spritz one or two pumps of the oil into the palm of your hand and work your way up from the ends to mid-length as desired. Or, you can use it as an intense conditioning treatment. Once or twice a week, apply it as a mask all over your hair and scalp. Leave it on for 10 minutes and thoroughly shampoo it out.
Meanwhile, if you're running out the door and just want a quick NUXE hit, just spritz it around your hair and body. Pro tip: Try doing that before bed for an extra dose of luxurious zen.
The best-kept secret about the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil is the smell. Besties, we need to talk about this smell. The smell is so good thanks to the botanical oils that so many people also use it as a perfume.
In case you're curious, the fragrant oils include argan oil, macadamia oil, borage oil, camellia oil, hazelnut oil and sweet almond oil. However, you should avoid the oil if you're allergic to any of the above oils or are sensitive to fragrance.
If you really want to amp up your look, you can also try the NUXE Prodigieuse Or Shimmering Multi-Purpose Dry Oil.
The shimmery NUXE oil is a great replacement for self-tanner and sun tanning (which, as we know, is a big no). The bronzed formula is a great way to give your skin that natural, sun-kissed look with added skin care benefits.
You also don't have to worry about the oil looking too glittery (IYKYK).
