Nuxe introduces Huile Prodigieuse Florale


French beauty brand Nuxe extends its iconic Huile Prodigieuse range with the launch of a new scent – Huile Prodigieuse Florale, designed by French perfumer Irène Farmachidi.

The original formulation of the Huile Prodigieuse is the number one product in the dry oil category in Europe, with no less than 366,000 bottles sold last year, and over 25 million bottles since its inauguration in 1991.


The leader in natural origin cosmetology now introduces a sister scent Huile Prodigieuse Florale, so women can alternate between two choices depending on their mood. The scent is described as a fresh and luminous, more feminine than the original composition. The warm, sunny scent, with a more delicate aroma, is said to be inspired by a field of blossoming flowers and it represents Nuxe’s ode to youth and femininity.

Huile Prodigieuse Florale features the same formula as the original one, only the scent is changed. The dry-oil is made from natural raw materials such as essential lemon oils, Calabrian Bergamot, and fair trade orange essence. Exactly 96.9% of the ingredients comes from natural sources, including seven core botanicals: Tsubaki, Camellia, Argan, Macadamia, Borage, Hazelnut, and Sweet Almond.

The sparkling floral fragrance opens up with zesty citrus notes, including grapefruit, lemon, orange, and bergamot. A floral heart blooms to the notes of Magnolia, while the base leaves a soft trail of white musk.


This multipurpose oil has the same proven ability to restore and repair skin and hair. It offers 8-hour moisture and antioxidant protection, as well as nourishment and shine.

Produced in the ethical and sustainable way, the oil will not have any outer packaging. It arrives in a rose-tinted bottle with a metallic pink cap.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Florale is available at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Nuxe.




Precious Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Imperial Oil


French Maison Guerlain extends its iconic Orchidée Impériale collection with a luxurious antiaging oil. Same as the rest of the range, The Imperial Oil is formulated according to the latest discoveries in skin longevity. It features a unique, sensorial formula built around the most precious and rare raw material – the orchid.

The Imperial Oil absorbs instantly, without any oily residue.

Guerlain The Imperial Oil combines orchid’s longevity with no less than 20 different botanical oils. Designed to help restore skin’s firmness, this silky, nourishing elixir promotes the skin’s natural lipid content, reinforces its supporting fibers, and brings comfort and nourishment without a trace of heaviness or any oily residue.


The soft, gliding oil, instantly fused with the skin and penetrates deep within to deliver a potent toning action and make the skin appear more elastic, firmer, and youthfully invigorated.

Formulated with +98% natural ingredients, The Imperial Oil uses Cell Respiration Technology to deliver more oxygen to the cells and boost their regeneration. 20 different botanical oils, rich in essential fatty acids, provide nourishment and restorative action, supporting the pillars of the skin – its fibers. A blend of lipids increases the production of collagen as it provides potent anti-inflammatory action that deteriorates the collagen fibers.


The oil should be applied morning and evening as a pre-serum. The Imperial Oil by Guerlain is presented in a luxurious, eco-friendly bottle with a massive gold-colored stopper.

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Imperial Oil is available at Guerlain boutiques, counters and selected stores worldwide.

Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Dry Oils


The collection, inspired by the Asian science of life, the ancient wisdom of attaining a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit, now welcomes three 100% natural dry oils, each formulated to cleanse a specific dosha, or type of energy, and keep them in balance. In addition, the whole collection is relaunched in a new design, featuring some new, luxurious products as well as beloved bestsellers – 16 products in total.

If you’re new to Ayurveda, let me note that dosha is the central concept of Ayurvedic medicine. There are three doshas – Vata (airy element), Pitta (fiery element), and Kapha (watery element) – and the state of health is defined as a balance between these three elements. Since doshas are found everywhere, but in different ratios, the aim of The Ritual of Ayurveda collection is to help restore their balance, and subsequently improve health and well-being.

Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Dry Oils


Three new dosha-balancing oils are formulated with 100% natural ingredients and Ayurvedic herbs, while all of the products of the range share the same base ingredients: Indian rose with Himalaya honey and sweet almond oil.

Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Vata Oil



The Ritual of Ayurveda Vata Oil is enriched with sweet almond oil and basil.

When Vata is balanced, you are joyful, creative and vital, but when Vata is imbalanced you are fearful and anxious.


Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Kapha Oil



The Ritual of Ayurveda Kapha Oil is formulated with invigorating ingredients such as ginger and cinnamon.

When Kapha is balanced, you are loving, forgiving and loyal, but when it is imbalanced, you can be insecure, envious and stubborn.


Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Pitta Oil 



The Ritual of Ayurveda Pitta Oil is based on soothing lavender and ylang ylang.

When Pitta is balanced, you are intelligent, content and a good leader, but when your Pitta is out of balance, you can be controlling, aggressive and demanding.

The rest of the product range includes shower foam, body scrub, hand lotion, bed & body mist and fragrance sticks. The collection is available for purchase at Rituals boutiques and selected stores.





Chanel Huile de Jasmin



This Spring Maison Chanel launches Huile de Jasmin, based on the original formula created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel back in 1927. Huile de Jasmin is a revitalizing facial oil with jasmine extract, formulated to make the skin look luminescent. It represents a reinterpretation of the precious emblematic treatment from the history of the house and from Coco’s own beauty counter.

The oil nourishes and repairs the skin, made of many, mostly natural oils and ingredients. The formula transmits its revitalizing properties to the skin, providing comfort and elasticity. Jasmine oil from Chanel’s own fields in Grasse is the main ingredient, paired up with camellia, limnathes alba and jojoba oil. The jasmine that is used is collected by hand on the day of its emergence to preserve all its properties.


The facial oil provides a moisturizing and strengthening effect, protecting the skin’s barrier and provides it with comfort and suppleness. In addition, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Maison Chanel did a clinical evaluation on 33 women to test the product. The results are:

  • The skin looks immediately brighter: + 22% . Day after day, it increases its luminosity: +31% after one month.
  • Wrinkles and expression lines are less visible. The skin is visibly smoother: + 34%.
  • The skin is hydrated and protected. The complexion shines naturally, sublimated by a subtly satin finish.

You can use Huile de Jasmin daily or as a cure treatment, according to the needs of your skin. It can be used directly on the clean skin, under a serum or a cream, for women who feel their skin is tired and lacks vitality, or combined with a cream, for women looking for additional comfort in a single application, or even with a foundation, for a touch of luminosity.



The ultimate chic packaging screams luxury, reminiscent of the original one from the 1920s. Chanel Huile de Jasmin is only available for a limited time, as limited edition, sadly. So, don’t wait to long. It will only available at Chanel boutiques and on from March 2017. A 50 ml flacon will be around $120. Come into the world of




This new facial oil is perfect for the oil-phobic user


Clé-de-Peau-Beauté-Radiant-Multi-Repair-Oil il-CA.jpg

You got an aversion to facial oils? We hear you. While drier-skinned women love how oils sink in effortlessly and instantly rejuvenate the complexion, those with combination or oily skin, will probably avoid oils like the plague.

The new Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Multi-Repair Oil is not only lightweight, it’s relatively affordable for a luxury brand product. Each precious drop in the rose-hued bottle, can be used not just on the facial skin, but on the hair and body. Each drop targets skin and cuticle roughness and dryness and can hydrate for up to 24 hours.


Trust Clé de Peau Beauté to come up with facial oil that’s lightweight, luxurious and multi-purpose.

Enriched with a repair oil complex that contains rice germ, bio evening primrose, rosehip and camellia oils, this oil is rich in γ-linolenic acid, an ingredient often used to treat eczemic skin. This helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function, while a soya bean phospholipid in the formula supports the skin’s architecture, for a firmer, less lined and rejuvenated complexion.


A few drops of Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Multi-Repair Oil is enough.

How to use:

For face:

  • Incorporate this treatment into your nighttime skincare routine.
    Use at any time as desired – after cleansing, after applying lotion, or after applying emulsion.
    For normal usage, release three drops of oil into your palm using the dropper, and smooth over face gently.
    To enjoy the benefits of a relaxing facial massage during your skincare routine, release six drops of oil into your palm using the dropper and perform massage as shown in the illustrations.

For body:

  • After bathing and before skin is completely dry, smooth oil over body. Release sufficient drops of oil into your palm as desired based on the intended application. Perfect for dry patches of skin like the elbows. Get much more benefit after peeling the skin.

For hair:

  • After washing hair, gently towel dry hair and apply a desired amount of oil to ends, to tame frizzy hair.
    Dry hair with hairdryer, avoiding excessive heat.

We like packing the generously-sized bottle on trips as it helps the skin and hair in any emergency. Mix it in with your foundation if your skin is feeling dry and lacklustre, apply it on your cuticles and to tame frizzy hair ends…. it’s what we call a trye Holy Grail.
