Glossybox Product Review : Nuxe Dry Oil

This product was such a surprise for me. Although I had been looking for a good oil to use throughout my hair, this product said it was suitable for the face and skin as well which put me of a bit.

I believe that Nuxe is a french brand that specializes in skin care. I did some research on the product before i decided to use it and found that it was a multi-award winning beauty item that plenty of people swear by. This definitely gave me the incentive to want to try it, but even more so i wanted to love it as well.

I couldn't believe how far wrong i was in my first expectations of thinking it was going to be a really greasy oil. I suppose i should have got the point when it was described as a dry oil but i didn't fully understand until i started to use it. I tipped a bit onto my hand at first (This product really needs a pipet or a spray or something because it's hell trying to get it out of the bottle without getting to much or spilling it everywhere.) I rubbed it between my fingertips, and my first impressions were how dry it was; a silly thing to say i know, as it is a DRY oil. But it felt like it almost disappeared into my skin straight away. Regardless, i started ruffling it through the lengths of my hair, focusing mainly on the tips and smoothing my hair out. The oil made it feel so soft and silky. It calmed any weird fly aways i had after just straightening my hair and made it look so glossy and healthy.
Most importantly, it didn't make my hair feel greasy at all. When i woke up the next morning with second day hair i expected that with most products, my hair would be screaming to be washed but it wasn't. It looked healthy and clean. 
Additionally, when i washed my hair later that night the oil wasn't difficult to budge. Granted that i always wash my hair twice in the shower, but sometimes with some powders and oil hair product, it feels hard to wash out in the shower. I have extremely thick hair so i was pleasantly surprised by how effortless the product was.
I'm extremely excited to try it on my skin next and see how that works. It made my hands feel wonderfully soft when i applied the oil to my hair so i have high hopes for it.


  1. Glad that you liked it! I'm going to have to save up for a big bottle of this :) x

  2. Me too! How long did your sample size last you? xxo

  3. Since bleaching the ends of my hair, it's been rather dry. I used Nuxe's oil on the ends of my hair and it's improved it sooo much! My hair is literally back to its healthy normal self. Love Nuxe! Great review lovely :) xx

  4. P.s Thank you for including me in the little mention thing on the left! :) xx

  5. Aww no problem chick :) And i'm glad you love it as much as me. Can't wait for the next Glossybox already!! xxo

  6. I'm still using the sample at the moment, I've used about a third of it so far. Probably would be getting through it faster but I got a Macadamia Oil sample in my Boudoir Prive box so I've switched to using that on my hair for the time being, it's good! x

  7. If you had to pick one out of the Nuxe and the Macadamia Oil which one would you say is the best one to invest in? xxo
