Good Morning Everyone,
Well, we have had reviews of different beautifying oils from Body Shop in IMBB like the Shea Butter, Sweet Lemon, and Satsuma. So reading about these, I went to the Body Shop store and I was very curious about Moringa. Since every new term that I read, I do a google on it – imagine my surprise on what I found out about Moringa, it belongs to the same genus of the plants which also have drumsticks, which I happen to like a lot, so well though my decision was more influenced by my taste buds, needless to say I was pleasantly surprised 🙂
Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil Packaging:
The beautifying oil comes in a plastic golden-hued bottle with golden colored cap. The cap is not one of the strong points of the packaging, so you have to make sure that the cap is completely closed and tightened, but if you are careful on that part, it is easy to carry in a travel bag. Also, the nozzle is quite small, so it dispenses just the right amount of oil. The bottle is transparent, so you can see how much of the oil you have been using. The oil itself is transparent and has a light floral fragrance.
3.3 oz.(100 ml) bottle is priced at $14.
Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil Description:
Body shop has 9 different varieties of beautifying oil including Moringa oil. It also comes both in form of oil and body butter. Since it is a mixture of nut oils , if you are allergic to nuts, kindly avoid the oil.
The fragrance is mild and floral. After an hour, I can hardly smell any of the fragrance. However, the fragrance has a very soothing appeal.
My Experience with The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil:
My friends in their earlier reviewsof other beautifying oils from Body Shop have already described what is a beautifying oil. So, let me go ahead and share my experience on how it fared for me.
As a facial oil:
This product claims to be a dry oil, now what is a dry oil, you may wonder! These are oils which are extremely lightweight, are more easily absorbed into the skin, leaving a very thin veil of oil on the skin after application, and this is exactly what the Moringa beautifying oil does too. Do not get mistaken by the term oil in it. It does not leave any heavy greasiness on the skin, just a light sheen.
I have found this oil very suitable for my dry skin. I am currently using this oil in my night-time skin care routine. At night, I skip skin serum and just apply this oil and it keeps my skin moisturized. Though the product does not claim any anti-aging benefits, the oils in the product do make my skin look good the next day. I prefer it more during winter seasons as that’s when my skin becomes more dry. However, if you have oily skin, I would definitely recommend a patch test first as at the end of the day, it does have an oil content.
As a hair oil:
I used this oil twice or thrice for complete hair massage. So, I cannot say if it helped in my hair growth or reducing any hair fall. But yes, it is very easy to wash it off the next day with my shampoo. The hair continues to be manageable. However, I have more often used this oil after shampoo as a hair serum to avoid hair frizziness. Due to my hair being dry, I tend to have a lot of flyaways. I take just a few drops of this oil and run my fingers through my hair and it controls all the flyaways. I have found using this oil as more nourishing and reliable than a hair serum.
As a body oil:
I have been using this as my body oil during winters. Once I apply the oil, I do not have to wait for much time to get dressed as this is not very oily and not much of it gets transferred on to the clothes. I am using it also as my hand moisturizer at my home currently, but yes, I have to be careful not to handle any paper work immediately. But during cold winters, it acts as a very good moisturizer when I can apply the oil and put on my socks while the oil does its magic on the cracked heels. Again, I need very tiny amount to use on my hand , feet or body and it works extremely well.
Pros of The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil:
- Very lightweight oil which is not greasy like other oils.
- Leaves a light sheen after application.
- Would highly recommend if you have dry skin.
- Only a few drops are required to tame any hair flyaways.
- Fragrance is very mild and floral which fades away in an hour.
- Suitable to use as body oil for moisturization.
- Recommend to use it for winter season.
- Provides good hand and feet moisturization for dryness.
Cons of The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil:
- May not be suitable for oily skin due to oil content.
- Not suitable if you have nut allergy.
- Packaging not very sturdy.
4 out of 5. It is a great combination product which I can use on my face, hair and body.

Other User Reviews
Being a lover of the body shop, I had to get this product! I had to definitely give this product a second thought as I actually didn’t know what uses I could make out of this oil, and spending a 1000 bucks on it seemed too much. However, on finally getting this product and after using it for more than 3 months I have a lot to share! This oil smells heavenly, and gets absorbed into my skin ever so beautifully and effortlessly. Having dry skin, I always use some oil on my skin at night before going to bed. This oil is lightweight, can be used for multiple purposes, (there is an entire article on uses of beautifying oils) and never breaks me out! For an entire month now I’ve had perfect skin. I use a few drops of this oil on my face at night after using honey and lemon face pack. This is a perfect product for summers and during winters I can see myself using this with a few drops of some carrier oil. Even during the day I use it on my checks, which makes them look more glowy. This oil won’t clog pores at all. In short it’s a great product, go ahead for it!- Vanya Gangwar
