My Experience with The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Beautifying Oil:
I had an eye on The Body Shop’s Beautifying Oil ever since it came out in the market and I finally got one. It is available in the following scents: Brazil nut, Chocomania, Cocoa butter, coconut, mango, moringa, olive, pink grapefruit, satsuma, shea, strawberry and sweet lemon. I took a whiff of all the scents in the store and loved the scent of the sweet lemon the most.
The scent is light aromatic and very refreshing and citrusy. The scent does faintly linger on skin for around an hour. I have dry flaky skin and this does a wonderful job of moisturizing my skin and giving it a healthy sheen all day long. I have noticed my skin appears less dry even when I have washed it off.
It is a very lightweight oil and skin absorbs it almost instantly. It does not matter if you apply it on dry skin during the day or on damp skin after a bath. The effect are amazing. I initially thought the amount of product provided was very little compared to the price I paid, but it spreads very easily and you do not need much for a single use, so it will last you a long time, hence its worth the money.
I would not recommend using this on your hair or face. Although, it gave a nice shine to my hair, it made it very greasy and difficult to style. I washed it off the very next day. It would probably work for your hair if you have extremely dry hair and use very little amount like 2-3 drops for entire hair. This product is definitely recommended, a nice change from using regular body lotion and butters.
Pros of The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Beautifying Oil:
- Amazing scent.
