Bonjooooour les belles filles! 
Does anyone else feel that as soon as summer weather hits all you want to do is frolic around the city and suntan all day long
It's hard to concentrate on work these days with all the beautiful sunshine! 

So this was my first Nuxe product, ever. And I love it! To be honest I only use it in the summer because I have the version that has little gold flecks in it so its a bit too shimmery for daily use in the other seasons. 
I't s dry oil: it 6 precious plant oils (borage, St Johnswort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut, macadamia) and it has a sweet and subtle scent. Nuxe says that its suitable for all skin and hairtypes. 

Direct Nuxe Quote:
"The NUXE Amazing Dry Gold Oil has a super-activated formula that combines 30% of precious plant oils and vitamin E to nourish, repair and soften face, body and hair in a single gesture.
This oil leaves your face and body soft and velvety, whilst your hair becomes supple, glossy and full of volume. Thanks to its small golden particles, your skin glitters and reveals its beauty whenever you move."

Pigmentation: As beauty bloggers we always talk about pigmentation but for a dry oil you DON'T want pigmentation or for it to "leak". With that I mean you want to put it on and absorb into your skin and not leak and stain your clothes. Now this guy does not leave oil stain, but since it has those gold flecks it'll make your clothes quite sparkly-just a warning. I haven't tried the gold-free formula but I sorely doubt that it oil-stains clothes.
Wear and Texture: I can tell you that the wear is great, it absorbs well and my skin feels so nice and soft for the whole day. I tried it on my ends once and they seems indifferent to the treatment but I'll have to try it out again. The texture is oily, duh. It absorbs quickly, and the texture of your skin is so silky.
Packaging: I do like packaging but for me it won't make or break a good product. If I think something is product well and would be good, the looks aren't always a huge deal. Although, I wont lie, beautiful packaging is the first thing that pulls me into a new product. The packaging for this guy is meh, it could definitely be cuter. 
Price: Oof! Nuxe products are pricey. Not as bad as Laura Mercier, Chanel or Sisley but I had to think about it before buying. I think in Canada the 100ml (bigger size bottle) is about 44$. 
Would I repurchase it? Yes. This product has definitely opened my eyes to the world and wonder of dry oils and I would also be very open any other oils! 

Have you guys tried any dry oils? What do you think about this one?

Also! I'm looking for some new beauty/fashion blogs to follow, if you gals know any good ones lemme know! I'm also hoping to make this a bilingual (English and French) blog in the near future, since I live in Montreal-lemme know what you think ;) 

À Bientôt Mes Amours,
