Lotions and creams are great for moisturising the skin, however its just fact, that if you go for an oil, the chances are the process ends up being a little quicker. I previously tried out the Caudalie Divine oil, which I did like. however the pricetag was a bit steep for my current financial situation. So as always I went on the hunt to find a more budget friendly alternative. So say hello to The Body Shop Mango Beautifying oil*. At £9.00 its less hurtful to our bank balance, plus The body shop always have some form of discount code floating about, which is always a plus in my books.

This beautifying oil, is a bit of a multipurpose one, the body shop state that it can be used on the body, face and your hair. I however have just been using it on my body. I have specific oils for my face and hair so I didnt want to disturb my current routines. Saying that it works really well as a body oil. The first thing I noticed with this oil, is it's scent. The Mango scent is so lovely. I'd never tried anything from this range before, as I usually opt for a Coconut scent to remind me of holidays! For me personally the scent lasts a few hours before fading. I don't mind this as I'm not someone who layers the same scent when it comes to body oil/lotion and then perfume. So the fact the scent fades after some time is a plus for me. I know some people like to use products where the scent lasts all day, in which case this particular body oil wont be for you.

In regards to moisturising my skin, I did feel a difference after a few days of using it religiously. What I did love about the beautifying oil, was that it isn't greasy or sticky at all. I know some people can be put off by using oils on their skin because they feel it would be grease mania, but in this case it really isn't. It sinks in quickly and left my body (especially my legs after shaving) feeling really nice and nourished!

I think after testing a few dry oils on my skin, this one and the Cadualie one. I will be reaching for dry oils more through the warmer - I use this term loosely - months due to the ease of use and effect it has on my skin.

Have you tried any dry oils, send me your reccomendations!

Much love,
