NUXE

Birchbox Breakdown

Subtle shimmer? Coco Chanel fabulous. Gaudy glitter, on the other hand — more like fashion faux pas. This Parisian brand’s iridescent oil strikes the optimal balance between sophisticated, fun, and just plain good for you. Six essential oils, plus Vitamin E, leave face, body, and hair soft and silky. Better yet, microscopic flecks of golden shimmer deliver a subtle glow, perfect to set off your favorite party frock.

How it Works

Six natural oils — including Borage, St. John's Wort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, and Macadamia — moisturize, while Vitamin E delivers an antioxidant boost. But let’s get to the fun part: the golden silica particles reflect light and impart a sparkly sheen. The versatile formula is designed to be used on face, body, and hair.

How to Use

Work a few drops of the oil into the skin of your décolleté and blend to enhance your collarbone, or apply to your arms and legs for the full shimmery effect. You can also smooth a small amount into your hair for eye-catching locks.

isopropyl isostearate, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, dicaprylyl ether, coco-caprylate/caprate, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, corylus avellana (hazel) seed oil, mica, camellia oleifera seed oil, silica, parfum/fragrance, tocopherol, ci 77891/titanium dioxide, borago officinalis seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, ci 77491/iron oxides, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, hypericum perforatum flower/leaf/stem extract, solanum

Very nice shimmer!

This adds a very nice shimmer to hair or body! I primarily used it on my hair. The tiniest drop goes a long way! I have occasionally used it on my body for a night out and really liked the shimmer!

Love!!
Purchased

I love using oils, this one is great for adding shimmer to the skin (especially legs), I use it on top of moisturizer mostly at night for that extra pop of glow (without looking orange). It's not thick, so the remaining bit on my hands goes on the ends of my hair to add a little shine and achieve the separated/piecey look.

I am absolutely in love with Nuxe Huile Shimmer Oil! I mix a little in with my lotion and use all over, I even put it in my hair when I go out. It gives just the right amount of shimmer.

Love love this product and it has an awesome scent

With oily skin, I was hesitant to use an oil product on my face but this turned out to be a great product. I use it when I'm not going to wear any foundation and I'm just going to the gym so I don't look too pale. The scent stays faintly on and it smells great!

Good Glow
Purchased

Great for a hint of summer during the winter months! I mix with a fragrance free lotion and it gives just enough "glow" without looking like a bronzer. The smell is fresh, not over powering. I have used it in my hair on occasion (minimal amount), however I have fine hair and if too much is applied it can make it appear greasy. Overall, love the product and highly recommend for subtle shimmer on the skin.

I have the full size product and it did not come with a sprayer as mentioned in another review? Would love to see a smaller version sold to trave with.

Do not put in hair
Purchased

this is ok on skin and all, but the bottle says you can put it in your hair, and it just makes it really greasy and gross. i use hair oils, and they don't jack up my hair like this, so fyi, don't do it. i'm also only giving this one star because when you go to rub it on your arms, decolletage or wherever, more of it sticks to your hand than the body part you're rubbing it on. This is pretty much the only thing I've bought from birchbox that I really regret. It's awful.

soft and shimmering
Purchased

I love this product. I'm very pale and it gives just the right amount of glow - it is the closest I'll probably come to using a bronzer. It gives excellent moisture to my face, skin, and hair. It is especially nice for my dry, thick, coarse hair - where the shimmer is barely noticeable. On skin it is noticeable but I don't think it is *too* much*. I do wish I had bought the bigger size since apparently it has a spray top and the price difference is pretty small for twice the amount. The packaging is my one complaint about this product - a spray would have been so much better. Since summer is over, I may try the oil without the shimmer.
