holiday essentials: beautifying oil

The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil

The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil* - £9

There is nothing that screams holiday more than the scent of coconuts. Whether it is the suncream or the sweet scent of your second pina colada of the day, the lush smell of coconuts is the epitome of sunshine and tropical paradise. The Body Shop beautifying oil is a lovely versatile product that can be used on body, face and hair. It is a dry oil made with a lightweight blend of nut oils which gives your skin instant hydration and a gorgeous, shimmery finish.

This was one of the first products I packed whilst whittling down my brimming bounty of beauty items to take away with me. I find it works best when applied to damp skin after a bath or shower. It soaks in beautifully leaving little residue, conditions the skin and leaves it smelling truly tropical. On the skin I really like this product, but found it wasn't as effective when used on my hair. I felt it was a little heavy and cloying, and didn't do much for the condition or feel it, so I certainly won't be replacing my Moroccan Oil anytime soon. But my skin certainly loves this product and the natural coconut scent will continue to bring sunshine into my bathroom long after the holiday is over!

I ordered this online and received it today, I think it's a bit small for the price, but I agree with you on the skin/hair thing. My skin felt instantly softer, but my fringe (freshly washed) turned into a separate greasy mess! I hardly put any on either! Bit disappointing, but will carry on using on my skin :) Great post x

Awh, I wish this worked better on hair, my purse doesn't agree with Morrocan oil! It sounds lovely for the skin though. XO
