I was so thoroughly disappointed with this product. I loved the smell. Wanted to marry the smell. However, I found this gloppy and too slippery for a gel-type oil.
I have used baby oil for years to shave with and bought this to use instead, thinking there would be LESS gloppiness and slippery-ness, but it's worse. And it sticks to the walls in the shower and is really ... gross.
I could have lived with the mess - I do wash my shower after all and I did love the smell, so I continued to use it. Unfortunately, this takes a LONG TIME to soak in to the skin and WILL get all over your bedsheets, pajama pants,etc. I sat on my leather couch a few hours after showering and actually got oil (which I thought I had rubbed in enough with a TOWEL) all over the leather.
I actually threw this product away; I knew I'd never use it again. :(
What a great product. Very good for dry skin. The oil sinks in and stays all day. Love it.
I bought this at Target after I took a quick curiosity sniff of it. I absolutely LOVE the scent! It reminds me of summer. Very tropical and exotic feeling. It was reduced in price to about 4 or 5 bucks so I snatched up a bottle.
I love the scent and the way it moisturizes my skin, but it does tend to remain greasy for awhile. I'm not really surprised by that, since most body oils are somewhat greasy. However, it does make it a bit inconvenient when you are on the go and need a quick moisturizer. Also I've noticed that the scent doesn't last very long. It seems to fade after about an hour until I can't smell it at all.
Ran out of my Aveeno moisturizing lotion, and have grown tired of the slight scent of that (it's unscented, but still has a scent). So far, I really love this. The smell is awesome-- a mix of almond and cocoa butter it seems. It has been great on my dry legs. I will re-review as to its moisturizing qualities, but the scent is the main draw so far. I have no complaints about mineral oil; I find it a good moisturizer. Besides, there are other oils in this. I was considering L'Occitane's almond oil body wash, but this is a much cheaper alternative.
Looks like I'm in the minority, I hate this stuff. Mineral oil and more mineral oil. Yuck. This stuff does NOT EVER sink in. Leaves a very gross layer of sticky tacky greasiness. Had to throw it away after trying to make it work for a month. It does smell good, oh well. Maybe I was using too much but I'm not up for buying and being disappointed again.
During the winter, my skin becomes dry and irritated on my legs where I shave. Being anemic and perpetually cold during the months of October through March, those goosebumps that don't go away make for some difficult shaving on my legs. I purchased this body oil in the hopes that it would help with the dryness and also soften up the hair shafts so that shaving would be a breeze. So far, so good. I use it about once every other day - just on my legs; sometimes every day if I remember. I think it's too oily to use anywhere else. I'm usually very sensitive to fragranced lotions (though perfume never bothers me - go figure) so I was concerned that this may cause a reaction but it went on smoothly and my legs felt very much conditioned and easier to shave the next day. Definitely a great value and worth every penny (though it doesn't cost many)!
This is the only other body gel I have used besides the Johnson & Johnson gel. The smell is so wonderful. It reminds me of TBS Nut Butter which is also fabulous. I love to slather this on right after a shower at bedtime. That's the only time I use it since it leaves the skin feeling greasy. I wish it were easier to dispense because the bottle gets slippery and hard to control once it's on your hands. A pump would be much better.
This gel oil is amazing. I was skeptical wheni t first came out, trying to figure out how a gel, which can sometimes be drying, can be an oil which is extremely moisturizing. The smell is just delicious, first of all. I apply it to my legs after showering/shaving and it makes them feel so soft. I think this is going to be perfect now that we're going into the winter months since my legs get very dry after showering when it's cold out. This feels luxurious, like it should be ten times as much as it's selling for (which, for me, was $7.99 at CVS). I would recommend this to anyone who wants a very moisturizing product. The only cons are what the other reviewers have said, poor packaging could be messy and that it takes a good while to absorb into skin. I still love this product and will repurchase!
I do like this! especially in the summer, where I would slather it on my legs for a sexy shine. I like it in general after a shower as well, but am only giving it 4 lippies, not 5, because it IS a tad greasy and not easy to apply for a quick morning, and the bottle can be messy. I, too, wish it were a pump. But all in all, a nice product with a luscious scent!!!
Love, love, love! Smells so good and keeps my super dry skin moisturized. Cons: the lid is a bit worriesome/looks like it may break easily, the wonderful scent doesn't last too long, and this costs twice as much as other oil gels. But, that's not enough to take off a lippie for this grown up, non-baby smelling oil gel. Like most others I use this right out the shower while damp and then air dry afterwards.
