I moisturize my skin after shower using a combination of body oil and body butter, or a moisturizer. I have been doing this for years and over the years, my skin has definitely become supple and has a shine to it. My skin is not as amazing as the kind of skin models usually flaunt in advertisements, but still better than what I had to begin with. I use various kind of massage oils and right now I am using this one by Sheamoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Energizing Bath, Body and Massage Oil.
Restore light hydration and energize dry, dull skin with this silky-smooth oil. Certified organic Shea Butter and Coconut Water blend with our proprietary fusion of Dragon Fruit, Lychee Berry and Green Apple Extracts to moisturize, nourish and recharge tired-looking skin. Imbe Oil protects while Aloe promotes a healthy glow.
My Experience with Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Energizing Bath, Body and Massage Oil:
The product comes in a clear plastic, slender bottle with a “press on” cap on top to dispense the product. The packaging is sturdy, can stand upright in my medicine cabinet and is leak proof. It has a sticker on top that gives detailed product description, ingredient list and a brief story behind the brand.
It has a thick serum/oil consistency but is more dense and viscous than the usual massage oil which are more lube like to touch. It has a pleasant aroma of Dragon Fruit, Lychee Berry, Green Apple Extracts and coconut. This fragrance combination sounded absurd to me at first, but I was pleased by its aroma and how it lingered on my skin for a good few hours. It also complements my other body perfumes and mist as well. The oil has a faint yellow tinge to it, but it does not stain skin or clothes at all.
This oil can be applied on skin as one pleases but I find it best to apply it right after shower when the skin is still a little moist. It is hard to rub on to skin when the skin is allowed to get completely dry, so I recommend applying it on lightly, towel-dried skin or as I prefer, mix it with a body lotion to make application easier and help skin absorb it better.
Over regular use, I have noticed that my skin has become smoother and more shiny. I particularly enjoy wearing this oil right after I remove my body hair using an epilator. After epilation, my skin swells, turns red and appears bruised, so I need to soothe my skin with gentle massaging. This oil by Shea Moisture has proven particularly good for this purpose.

Cons of Shea Moisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Energizing Bath, Body and Massage Oil:
- Very viscous and more so as compared to other body massage oils.
- It is hard to massage on dry skin, so it is better to use it on wet skin or mix it with a body cream.
It is an amazing body oil and is perfect for those who like to use all-natural skincare products. It is affordable and comes in a good size bottle. I do recommend it to the readers and once I will run out of it, I will repurchase it again.
