Not your daughter's baby oil

In one of my recent Birchbox boxes, I received a tiny bottle of fancy-sounding oil. I was immediately skeptical. My previous experience with oil had been limited to greasy (and not-so-good smelling) baby oil, which I could never bring myself to slather on my daughter's skin. But when I uncapped this bottle, I realized it was decidedly different.

Nuxe Huile Prodiegieuse (and no, I still can't pronounce it) is a multi-use dry oil, which means you can use it on your body, face and hair. It's a blend of six different essential oils, including sweet almond, hazelnut and macadamia. I will sum up the scent in one word: divine. More specifically, it's light and botanical and refreshing. As I've progressed in my pregnancy, I've found another brilliant use for it: preventing stretch marks on my growing belly.

While it's a little pricey at $29.50 for 50 ml, one bottle should last for months and months. Buy it at Birchbox , and check out the video tutorial on how this cult classic can give you dewy skin.
