We all love a bit of sun, sea, and sand, but a day on the beach can leave your hair and skin feeling a little worse for wear. UV rays, salt water, and sand all cause dehydration, resulting in dry frizzy hair, and tight parched skin – not ideal!
Luckily, French pharmaceutical brand NUXE are here to help, with two new products specifically designed to combat the less desirable effects of your summer holiday. Plus, they’ve added a new addition to their iconic Huile Prodigieuse® collection, with a scented body lotion that’s perfect for locking in that tan after a long sunny day. Here are our top picks from NUXE to get you all set for summer…
Moisturising Protective Milky Oil for Hair, £12
This three-in-one protect, repair, and beautify hair oil is an absolute must for your summer holidays. Made with three sunscreens and a Rice Protein extract, it protects the hair and scalp from the harmful effects of UV rays, salt and chlorine. Coconut oil and Kau Pe Flowers work to nourish and repair, whilst the lightweight formula leaves hair silky smooth without weighing it down. Can be used on dry or wet hair, before and during sun exposure.
After-Sun Hair and Body Shampoo, £10
After a beach day, it’s not just your hair that needs some attention. Sand and salt residue have an amazing ability to stick to your skin even after you think you’ve washed it all off. Avoid finding sand in your bed for the next week, and treat yourself to an all over cleanse with NUXE’s After-Sun Hair and Body Shampoo. The creamy texture removes salt, sand, and chlorine without drying out the skin, and also leaves hair feeling beautifully supple and soft.
Prodigieux® Scented Body Lotion, £16.50
This luxurious body lotion is made with 6 precious botanical oils – Camellia, Argan, Sweet Almond, Macadamia, Hazlenut, and Borage – to lock in moisture for a long-lasting effect. The velvety texture is fast-absorbing and slightly pearlescent, which is perfect for bringing out that summer tan. Plus, the lotion is infused with the irresistible signature scent of Huile Prodigieuse®, combining notes of Orange Blossom, Magnolia, and Vanilla. Summer in a bottle!
Shimmering Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse® OR, £34
We had to include NUXE’s bestselling dry oil in our summer holiday essentials as it’s such a versatile product, and this shimmer version is just perfect for summer! Apply on its own to your face, body, and hair to enhance your natural radiance, or mix a small amount with your foundation to create a subtly iridescent finish. A little goes a long way with this, so it’s great value at £34 for 100ml.
Prodigieux® Shower Oil, £10
We couldn’t miss out the gorgeous Prodigieuse® Shower Oil from our summer body roundup, as it’s one of our favourite NUXE products. Scented with the standout Prodigieuse® fragrance, this subtly shimmering shower oil will instantly transport you back to summer holidays every time you cleanse with it. Its moisturising properties will leave you feeling satin soft and looking smooth too – ideal for when you want to show a bit of skin in warmer weather!
