Body washes aren't the most exciting things to write about, but when they are as good as the Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil then well, that's a different story! Nuxe is quickly becoming one of my favourite beauty brands as every product I've tried of theirs has always been such great quality. With a focus on natural ingredients and an affordable price point, Nuxe is the perfect line for someone who wants a touch of luxury in their everyday routine.
New this spring, the Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil is of course, inspired by the famous multi-purpose oil of the same name and offers a lighter version for those who are more on-the-go. This sulfate-free cleanser is a body wash/moisturizing oil with a sweet almond oil base and contains teeny tiny gold micro-shimmers.
Composed of 91.9% natural ingredients, this body wash is made up primarily of:
- Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate - a foaming cleanser
- Coco-glucoside - a coconut-derived cleanser
- Glycerin - a moisturizer
- Cocamidopropyl betaine - a cleanser
Price & Packaging
A 200 ml tube costs $16 and is available at Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Hudson's Bay.
Although $16 isn't too pricey, it's obviously more than a bar of soap and arguably won't last you as long, but I don't think that's the point. The biggest arguments to use the Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil is for its scent and its moisturizing properties. This is the perfect product for someone who wants a bubble bath experience, but who is too lazy to actually run a bath, aka me. I'm too impatient to wait around for a bath and once I do all the work to get it ready, I'm bored after 5 minutes! A nice long shower though is just my speed.
The Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil smells absolutely amazing and instantly relaxes me after a long day. If you're a fan of the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil then you'll love this body wash as it smells exactly the same, with its heady mix of luxurious nutty smells like macadamia, olive, sweet almond and hazelnut, paired with gentle touches of orange flower, magnolia and vanilla.
The texture of the Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil is a little thicker than most body washes and comes out as a golden gel that foams easily and spreads well over skin. Post-rinse, my skin felt nicely hydrated and soft. If you're really in a hurry and you don't have dry skin, you could probably even skip lotion! I tried doing this a couple days at a time just to test and didn't experience any flaking or any noticeable difference in my skin, but long-term I'd still recommend using a body lotion.
Buy - an affordable way for shower lovers to get all the relaxing benefits of the famous Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil in half the time.
