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.

I think this oil is a nice idea, but just not for me. I tried to apply just a tiny bit to the ends of my hair, but it made even my dry ends look stringy and greasy. Also, I am not a fan of the overload of shimmer that is left on my palms after I apply this product to any area of my body. I suppose it could be washed of, but for the lux price of this product I feel that is too big of a hassle.2
This isn't a product I would normally use. It worked alright, but had a bit of a funny smell.2
it smells awful. it would be nifty for a party, maybe some shimmer on the legs for a summer day, but the use is rather limited. it's very expensive. by size, it's actually a bit more expensive than Nars Glow, which is ridiculous. i would much rather purchase Nars, if i chose to spend so much money on what is essentially body glitter. i'll probably use up the sample, eventually, but i don't see myself purchasing a product like this till i get filthy rich :)2
Not a fan of looking shimmery. Reminds me of being 6 and having shimmery Barbie lotion!2
It's really runny, which makes it hard to use. I like the idea of it, but it is just too messy.2
I really wanted to love this product. I've read rave reviews about the entire Nuxe line and this seemed like the perfect place to start. I love using dry oils in the summer and appreciate the versatility of this product - even with the bronze and lovely shimmer built in. My only issue with this product is how it turned on my skin. I enjoy the light, white floral scent out of the bottle, but when it hit my skin, some combination of the oils and scent turned to a heavy, noxious smell that was as though I'd gotten off work after a 10 hour day as a fry cook. I couldn't stand it. The shimmer and bronze were lovely - even on my pale skin. But, the way the smell changed on my skin was downright gross.3
This product is a luxurious item, but nothing I would recommend going and splurging on. It gives a nice shine to the hair, but I would recommend spending your money on a hair oil instead.3
I would never pay full price for this; I got the smaller bottle for very little using my points and during a sale. The product itself is nothing life-changing, just a lightly scented, very dry oil with golden bronze shimmer. However, I've been fascinated by it since I tried it at a French beauty shop. The oil works best if you moisturize your legs first if they are very dry, and provides a very slight tint on my pale legs along with pretty subtle shimmer.
If you want a lovely, old-fashioned bottle, a little taste of luxury a la Francaise, and don't mind having a nice product that isn't mind-blowing, go ahead and spend the extra money, but if you just want a shimmery body lotion, there are much more affordable options out there.
I'm pale as a ghost, but I thought this was a great product for a night out if you put a little on just your collarbones or neck for a highlight effect. It was also great in hair (mine's blond) if you mix just a bit with a frizz serum right after you shower and then apply. This keeps it from looking greasy while still giving you that sparkly effect.3
I first tried this oil on my hair, but even a very small amount was too much due to my hair being fine and oily already. I then tried it on my skin and was decently pleased with the results though. I will be saving most of this oil sample for the summer for a nice shimmer when I get my tan back. The results were not good enough to purchase again though considering the price.3
