30 years ago, Aliza Jabès, founder and CEO of NUXE group, developed Huile Prodigieuse® with the scientists from her Parisian laboratory, a pioneer in natural-origin cosmetics. The success of this ground-breaking dry oil accelerated NUXE’s growth and the product quickly became an icon, loved by millions of people all over the world. So… How does Huile Prodigieuse® continue to win hearts, generation after generation?

It’s secret formula is what makes it so iconic:

  • A pioneering product in the ‘consume less but better’ approach, with its clean and vegan formula containing 7 precious 100% botanical oils.
  • Nourishing and beautifying multi-purpose care (face – body – hair) with proven effectiveness and made with pharmaceutical quality standards.
  • A product to nourish your glow, leaving a beautiful, radiant sheen on the face and body, while connecting you to your senses.

Birth of a legend As a young mum, Aliza Jabès dreams of a natural care product that was capable of beautifying the face, body, and hair in a single step. Her laboratory develops a product with a ‘dry oil’ texture and a captivating scent. This effective and sensorial oil overturns conventions in the pharmaceutical world, rapidly evolving from a ‘beauty secret’ to an iconic care product.


Huile Prodigieuse® Or is created To create Huile Prodigieuse® Or, NUXE combined the inimitable dry texture of its original oil with golden, shimmering pearly particles. Creating an instant illuminating effect, this dry oil helps to achieve an irresistible and iridescent glow.

Our tips to spread the glow...

Use Huile Prodigieuse® all year round during winter and summer.

Before each application, warm the oil in your hands, then cup them over your nose to savour the irresistible notes of each scent. Mix a few drops in the palm of your hand with your NUXE moisturiser. Spread using smoothing strokes, working from the centre of the face towards the outer contours.

Use Huile Prodigieuse® Or to create an instant healthy glow effect by mixing a few drops with your foundation in the palm of your hand. Inspired by the strobing technique, this allows you to highlight certain parts of your face using your fingertips or a flat brush: cheekbones, bridge of the nose or forehead above the eyebrows…

Men can use Huile Prodigieuse® to care for their beard and leave it feeling supple and soft. It can also be applied before shaving (before a foam or gel) to prepare the skin.


Apply using circular movements (bust, legs, etc.), paying particular attention to rough areas of skin and/or stretch marks. For very dry skin, opt for Huile Prodigieuse® Riche. Huile Prodigieuse® Or adds beautiful golden highlights to a tan and creates an illuminating pearly glow on rounded areas of the face and body (décolleté, shoulders, etc.). When applied, a delicate, radiant sheen is provided. It blurs minor imperfections and even creates the illusion of a sculpting effect.

TOP TIP: Are you in the mood for a moment of relaxation? Pour a few drops of oil into the warm water of your bath and savour its scent…


Apply to the lengths and ends as often as required. For an intense conditioning effect, you can also apply it as a hair mask: once or twice a week, before shampooing, apply all over your hair and leave for 10 minutes.

As the Beauty Editor for LOOKFANTASTIC Beauty Box I’m always hunting for a good beauty story, I like to remain ahead of the trends. But aside from this, I’m a keen reader and writer in my spare time. You’ll find me with my head in a good book most of the time- Beauty & Fashion related or otherwise! You’ll often find me obsessing over the latest tropical-scented body oil or lathering on the coconut moisturiser. As you may have already guessed, I have a natural affinity for all things tropical. Beauty and grooming for me is escapism, a little slice of heaven away from the day-to-day.
