If you said body oil to anyone this week, I am fairly sure that there is one “break the Internet” picture that will spring to mind for them. From the looks of things, Mrs Kardashian West was not only looking to “break the Internet” but potentially break a limb if she slipped on that stuff.
For me, oil is quite often my go to skincare product for the body. Ever since I tried a body oil by Trevarno I have found them really ease to use…. and there is something about oils that normally smell sublime. I have found that with body oils I have had to kiss a few frogs before I found my prince. There are so many that smell nice but leave you looking slicked up and it would be lethal to even contemplate dressing successfully after application.
Lets be honest most of us are on a tight timescale in the morning and we need products that feel good, smell good and sink in quickly so we can get on to the rest of our morning routine. Enter Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil with Neroli, Lavender, Rose and Mandarin. This beauty is £48 for 100mls and is pretty much perfect.
The luxuriant essential oil blend that is a signature of the brand, is intricately mixed with BioOrganic botanicals to produce an opulent dry body oil that does everything you could want it to do. The aroma is wonderfully invigorating and calming. It just strikes the right cord no matter what time of day you apply it. On top of neroli, lavender, rose and mandarin oil, this product is enhanced with riches of the following oils
- Macademia and borage which are full of skin firming fatty acids
- Mongongo which carries high levels of vitamin E
- Kukui oil for its skin hydrating and repairing qualities
- Kalahari which is super light, hydrating and leaves no residue on the skin
I have not even got to mention that it is free from a load of nasties including synthetic fragrances, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates to name a few. A full list of ingredients that are part of Aurelia’s strict free from ingredients policy can be found here.
This dry oil kicks some butt. Time to say goodbye to scaly or lacklustre looking skin and pronto. No sooner have you applied this dry oil, massaged it in and you are good to get dressed. It doesn’t fall into the trap of many dry body oils by leaving a weird residue on your skin. It leaves your skin fully moisturised, smelling fairly terrific and set for the rest of the day. It is also beautiful to use before bedtime. I found it to be long lasting and the beautiful packaging also advises of a few ways to use the product effectively.
- Apply to damp skin for maximum moisture lock in
- Use on dry skin
- Massage on the skin prior to shower or bath and appreciate the benefits of the essential oils
- Blend with you body moisturiser
- Soothe skin after hair removal with application of this smooth and softening dry oil
5* Fifi Friendly awarded to Aurelia’s Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil. As it stands I think Aurelia Probiotic Skincare is breaking a record and heading to be the brand with the most Fifi Friendly 5*s awards next to their name.
