My Thoughts

I absolutely love this body oil! I've added this body oil to my bath water and my skin felt so soft while I took my bath. You only need to add a small of oil amount to your bath water, about 1 to 2 capfuls (you don't want to have a slippery tub!) I've also used this body after I got out the shower and once again my skin was left feeling soft and smooth. As the bottle states, you really should use this body oil while your skin is damp to get the best results. Make sure you leave the oil on your skin for a few seconds and then pat dry. 

This body oil does absorb rather quickly and it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy and clothes weren't stained with oil. Another perk is that when I used this oil after I shaved my legs, they felt so smooth and gave my legs a beautiful glow. I like how Vitamin E is one of the ingredients in this body oil because I've noticed since I've been using this product that my skin is more even and the few acne scars that I had are disappearing. As for the smell, when I first opened the open I immediately thought this oil smells like chocolate devil's food cake. The smell isn't too over powering, but definitely noticeable.  I recommend trying Palmer's Moisturizing Body Oil if you want your skin to feel soft, smoother, and silkier.

Oooo this sounds super nice!! Ive never used a body oil before! I'm always afraid they are going to be too heavy or greasy so that's why so that's good to know this one isn't!! Vitamin E has such good healing properties in it! Great review Pilar, I need to get this and put it in my bath!

Sounds like a wonderful body oil! I need to give this a try! Great review!

Pilar said...

Thanks! That's one reason that I really didn't like using body oils in the past because of the greasiness, but this one isn't too greasy and it absorbs quickly. I also like that I can put this oil in my bath water too.

Pilar said...

It's a really good body oil, and I will be using it in the Winter as well!

Pilar said...

Thanks! I hope you like this body oil if you decide to purchase it!
