I love having the chance to try out new brands and have been testing out the Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost skincare collection for the past month! You may know the brand from their iconic dry oil but this is my first time trying their products.
About the Collection
The philosophy and idea of this collection really resonates with my lifestyle. The Creme Prodigieuse Boost is a multi corrective skincare line to fight the harmful effects from fatigue, stress and pollution. Young women these days are so busy and hectic lifestyle choices can affect your skin condition. The formulas in this collection aims to boost the skin’s antioxidant defence mechanism, collagen reserve and cellular activity.
The products all have a beautiful floral scent that is clearly evident but not overpowering. There’s also a light pink tinge to the products. Read on to see what’s my pick on the top product in this collection!
Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost Energising Priming Concentrate
The first step in this skincare collection is the Energising Priming Concentrate ($39). I use this as a serum, right after cleansing my face. The texture is extremely watery and quite refreshing on the skin. It has a slippery feel at first even though the consistency is thin like water. It temporarily leaves a slightly tacky feel but dries down really quickly. The formula contains 2 types of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.
The light texture is inspired by Korean cosmetics and is meant to be a primer to prepare the skin for further products. I always use a serum now before cream as I think serums can provide a lot of skincare benefits. They sink further into the skin therefore more likely to be effective.
Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost Multi-Correction Eye Balm Gel
Call this a conspiracy theory but I don’t think eye creams work! I don’t think I have much of a dark circle but I do have some fine lines in my inner corner. However, I’ve never found an eye cream that actually provided tangible results. The Multi-Correction Eye Gel Balm ($38) has a really nice texture. It’s medium weight and has this plush, moussey feel as you blend the product in.
The formula includes a Botancial Caffine extract to fight against dark circles and puffiness. Hazlenut Oil is added to help strengthen the fragile skin around the eye. I thought this product felt very nice around the eye but I did not notice any difference.
Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost Multi-Correction Gel Cream
There are two creams in this collection and the Multi-Correction Gel Cream ($48) is better suited for those with Normal to Combination skin. For a facial moisturizer, it has a very light consistency and seems to easily melt into the skin. It’s great for those who like to use skincare in the morning. I have dry skin though so this is not moisturizing enough for me and my skin feels tight after.
The cream includes Jasmine Flower extract which is a boost for the skin’s antioxidant defence mechanism. Now that I live downtown, my skin gets exposed to a lot of pollution. I recently had a skin diagonsis that showed I had excess sebum and a dusty face! It’s definitely important to consider the impact of pollution and stress on your skin. That’s why I really like the idea behind this line.
Nuxe Creme Prodigieuse Boost Night Recovery Oil Balm
I saved the best for last! The Night Recovery Oil Balm ($52) is my favorite product in this collection! The name makes it sound frightening greasy, but I actually find it really light weight. It is medium consistency at best and has a gel texture to it. Similar to the eye cream, there’s a plush and moussey feel. This provides nice moisture for my dry skin and I’d use this in the morning too!
This cream also includes Jasmine Flower extract. Additionally, it also has Nopal Flower extract which boosts cell renewal. My skin usually looks pretty fresh and smooth when waking up in the morning.

Overall, I really like the idea of this collection but only the Night Recovery Oil Balm is hydrating enough for my dry skin. I like the Energising Priming Concentrate as I’m used to use a serum before cream but it can probably be substituted by something else.
