Beauty Buzz: NUXE Crème Prodigieuse Boost

One of the most iconic beauty products of our time has to be Huile Prodigieuse multi-purpose dry oil for face, body & hair by NUXE Paris.

Since I discovered this incredibly versatile (and deliciously scented) oil I’ve been a big fan!

Known for its’ nourishing and repairing properties, this oil has become a cult item beloved by beauty fans around the world.

NUXE is a gorgeous French brand that focuses on skincare. Their range of skincare products are botanically inspired with 91% natural ingredients that harness the natural properties or plants to treat and hydrate the skin. Each extract used in their products is carefully chosen for its effectiveness, efficacy and safety.

The brand prides itself on being a market leader in botanical research and holds an impressive 45 patents within its formulas, incredible for a company that is only 29 years old! Plus all the products they create are 100% biodegradable and all the pretty packaging is 100% recyclable.


NUXE has recently reformulated their iconic Crème Prodigieuse range – giving it an added “Boost”.

The range includes an eye cream, a serum essence (designed to be used after cleansing and before moisturising), and two moisturisers in two different textures – one for normal/ combination skin and another for drier skin, like mine!

The radiance-boosting light-weight formulas will leave your skin feeling refreshed, plumped up, and glowing from the inside out.

The products all contain an anti-oxidant complex with Jasmine flower, Calendula and Vitamin C to combat the damaging effects of modern living – think stress, pollution, and fatigue.

The entire range has a delicate fragrance of jasmine, lychee and white rose that was created by the brand’s in-house nose. (so avoid if you’re not a fan of scented skincare or have more sensitive skin as fragrance is often a trigger.)



Crème Prodigieuse Boost Energising Priming Concentrate (R425)

A gel-like serum that will hydrate, plump and protect your skin. This product contains actives such as Hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, and an antioxidant complex to protect your skin from free radical damage and fight pigmentation.

Crème Prodigieuse Boost Multi-Correction Silky Cream (R495)

A richer formula than the Crème Prodigieuse Boost Light Cream (R495) for normal to combination skin, I enjoyed using this silky cream, but my dry skin could have done with a even greater dose of hydration, especially at night. Both of these contain the same antioxidant complex as above to protect from free radical damage.

Crème Prodigieuse Boost Multi-Correction Eye Balm Gel (R425)

I must admit I’ve been really slacking when it comes to using eye cream! It’s certainly an area I need to up my game. This soothing eye balm has a gorgeous formula that is light and refreshing. A pleasure to use in the morning to brighten up the area. It takes a while to sink into the skin but that just means it’s extra hydrating and will leave you looking awake for longer!



The Crème Prodigieuse Boost range from NUXE sells for between R425 – R495 and is available at selected Woolworths stores, Truworths stores and online at
