Nothing could prepare me for the stunning beauty that is Paris. I had heard about the splendor of the city and seen photos and films but it was so much better than I ever imagined!
Parisian woman are know for their fabulous sense of style and high fashion trends and while shopping on Champs Élysées I could definitely see how they earned that reputation. To help keep me in the loop Nuxe has kindly sent me their diary of tips titled – “Parisian Woman Beauty Secrets” which highlights how these chic ladies stay radiant and pamper their skin. Today I will highlight some of these luxurious products to help you get your glow on too.
The Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse is one of the brands most popular products and if you’ve tried it you are probably hooked too! This luxurious oil has been a French beauty secret since 1991 and if you are unfamiliar with the term "dry oil" it simply refers to the lightweight, non-greasy, ultra silky texture that leaves no residue or annoying stickiness behind. In fact you can think of this oil as more of a bountiful elixir, enriched with a fabulous blend of Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage, Sweet Almond, Camellia and St. John’s Wort. The light, wonderful texture also makes it suitable for warm weather and if you plan to show a little skin it adds a healthy, luminous sheen.
Huile Prodigieuse has a spray applicator that gently mists the skin in supple layers and the scent is so warm and inviting you don’t even need perfume. I like to massage it in after spritzing for better coverage and since the formula is 97.8% natural and free of preservatives it doesn't irritate or feel slick. The best thing about the elixir is that it can be used on the face, body and hair for head to toe hydration! I absolutely love the cute Parisian inspired bottle etched with the stunning skyline.
If you want to awaken the golden goddess in you and play up the bronzed, sunkissed look then the shimmer formula is a must! It has all the same nutritive properties as the original plus the infusion of gold sparkle dust to illuminate and highlight the body so you can gleam-on with confidence! The regular formula retails for $45.00 and the shimmer oil is $54.00.
In Paris strutting down the street in a designer outfit with baguette in-hand is part of daily life and to showcase your golden glow the Prodigieux Shower Oil ($15.00) is splendid! Infused with radiant gold shimmer to subtly highlight your body and an invigorating mythical fragrance, the silky foam gently cleanses to remove oil and environmental gunk. I love that it leaves my skin soft and fresh with no residue or dryness.
I love a makeup remover that doesn’t strip, dry and irritate my skin which is why I am smitten with this Nuxe gel. The mild, soap-free formula gently removes makeup including heavy foundation and concealers and cleanses with 93% natural ingredients. Although this is not made for the eye area it does a good job eradicating excess oil, impurities and residue that can clog pores and cause blemishes. The honey and sunflower seed oil soothes, brightens and softens instead of making skin tight and uncomfortable. You can also use the refreshing gel with your favorite face cleansing brush and I can definitely see why this is a bestseller. It retails for $19.00.
Next up are two products that will help you kick winter’s butt and alleviate the dryness it’s unleashed. The Hand and Nail Cream with honey, precious oils and vitamin E is a dry skin savior! This rich, lush formula repairs, nourishes and protects rough hands and cuticles for instant results. It also helps recuperate brittle, peeling nails with an abundance of natural extracts, flower ingredients and moisturizing properties. When this cream is in my purse I am never afraid to show off my mani! It retails for $19.00.
Admittedly I have a lot of lip balms and they are always within reach because I find dry lips intolerable! This formula is so effective that it has shot to the top of my favorites list! As the name indicates it has a balm consistency which means thicker, creamier layers which I love. Despite the texture it still feels lightweight and drenches lips in rich, conditioning moisture that soothes dryness and treats chapped, peeling skin. The formula is enriched with honey, shea, sweet almond, grapefruit oil, lemon oil, sunflower and other extracts to make lips feel soft and supple. If you need an amazing lip balm that offers long lasting results then this one takes the cake! It retails for $19.00.
