Birchbox Breakdown

It’s taken a while for us to come around to the idea of putting oil directly onto our skin, but now that we have, we don’t know how we ever lived without it. Rather than leave our skin slick, this essential oil dries to a lustrous, lightly fragranced finish. It’s versatile, too — use it on your body, face, and hair.

How it Works

A blend of six different essential oils, including Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, and Macadamia, this multi-purpose oil hydrates skin and gives it a velvety sheen. In addition to the natural reparative plant oils, the formula also includes a good dose of healing vitamin E.

How to Use

As a skin treatment, rub a few drops between the palms of your hands and smooth over face or body, concentrating on rough patches. To replenish dry hair, use sparingly and work a few drops through the ends of strands.

Borage, St Johnswort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut, Macadamia Plant Oils

A New Essential
Purchased

I saw this product on list after list of miracle beauty products from French pharmacies, so couldn't resist. Even Goop. To begin - the smell, the glorious smell! It's the only fragrance I'll hear of for now. Alack, since that's not it's actual purpose, I use a few drops in my normal moisturizer/sunscreen every morning for unbelievably soft skin.

So Luxurious!!
Purchased

This oil is the best that I have come across. Sent to me by Birchbox, in the sample box almost 2 years ago. I instantly knew this was going to be a long term relationship. I love everything about it. The formula, the moisturizing feeling it leaves on your body, it's versatility and scent, of course. This is definitely a great purchase and one I will continue to purchase in the future!! Nuxe got this product so right.

I feel so French!
Purchased

Whenever I use this oil, I feel so French! It smells amazing! Perfect for second or third day hair. I like that it's 97% natural, unlike other oils I've used in my hair. I've also applied it to my face. Great after cleansing prior to bed. Not heavy and smells sexy. Ooh la, la!!

Good!
Purchased

I like the dry oil idea--this one is a bit intense on the scent. Maybe I'm using too much? It's rich and sophisticated though!

love this product

I first purchased this French cult favorite while in France, and quickly became addicted to it. I normally put a few drops all over my body right after the shower in order to keep my skin super soft. It's not greasy at all and sometimes, even if I skip my usual perfume people compliment me on how I smell and ask what I'm wearing. It has a nice, subtle scent

Small Bottle, Beautiful Oil
Purchased

This oil smells amazing, first off. My husband thought it was perfume. It's a lovely, lovely oil and great for my acne prone skin. Especially since I'm usually sensitive to fragrance. An all around wonderful experience using this product.

That said, the bottle is smaller than I expected, and dispenses oddly. It's also a weird shape to hold and I feel like I might drop it if my hands aren't totally dry/oil free. It's also really very pricey considering the cost of oils at my local co-op (though none of them smell this great). I wouldn't purchase this full price -- I paid for most of it with points.

Lot of awesome in a little bottle
Purchased

This is such a great product. I like using it in the ends of my hair,little on the arms and a touch to the face. I have long, straight, thick, fine hair and it seems that the ends keep getting out of control and frizzy looking which I can not stand. This has done wonders to just smooth the ends without oily grossness. As others have posted on skin it's great, melts right in and smells great. This was a great purchase.

Lovely dry oil
Purchased

Prefect after a bath and before bedtime. Luxurious oil with a fabulous scent. Sinks into the skin leaving you moisturized and smelling Devine. You will love it.

Wasn't too sure at first...

At first I was like, "oil? hmm..." seeing how I have enough trouble getting rid of the oil on my face to begin with. But this stuff has a lovely fragrance, and it gave my skin a nice healthy glow, and it actually is healthy.
