Not so long ago i was using (almost) only body lotions. Body oils were usually too greasy and messy for me. Well, not anymore! Body oils have found their place in my green beauty stash. My current love is this amazing body oil by Aroma naturals – it smells lovely, soaks into skin well, has lovely ingredients and is very affordable. What is not to love?
Only thing i am not so crazy about is packaging. Not that cute. I think they actually changed it recently, but not sure if it looks better 😀 But hey, don´t judge book by it´s cover, right? With summer that is fast approaching, i was looking for something with fresh scent and lovely ingredients. And that´s when i found this Extraordinary Beauty oil by Aroma naturals.
Check out this great ingredient list! Prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, carthamus tinctorious (safflower) seed oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, D-alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E), retinyl palmitate (Vitamin A), magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (Vitamin C), organic cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) seed oil, argania spinosa kernel oil, borago officinalis (borage) seed oil, linum/sitatissimum (linseed) seed oil, organic punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil, manuka honey extract, adansonia digitata (baobab) seed oil, vaccinum augustifollum, passion fruita incarnata.
This oil is full of nourishing oils, that will keep your skin moisturized and happy. I like that it combines more “fancy” oils with classics such as coconut and olive oil. I found many amazing green beauty brands thanks to instagram, but many of them are “luxurious”. Sometimes it is frustrating how much they want for their products. I know, that high quality products may cost more, but those luxurious products have sometimes insane price points. And then you read ingredient list and there is nothing that special in them. But who knows, maybe they work like magic 😉 If you don´t want to splurge, keep it budget friendly with this one.
I love to use this all over my body, right after shower. I just pet my skin very gently with towel and then i apply this beauty oil. It soaks right into skin skin, keeping it smelling good and moisturized. You could use this also for massage, but since it is lighter oil, i prefer to use it as my body oil. The scent is lovely, but i can not describe it very well. I expected that it will be tropical-fruity (as passion fruit), but it is more subtle fruity-floral scent. But i like it!
I bought this Extraordinary Beauty oil by Aroma naturals at iherb.com for 8,97€/180ml. There are more blends and scents to choose from: Tea tree eucalyptus, Lavender passion flower, Orange honey blossom, Menthol & ici hot herbs, Coconut & Vanilla. Not sure which one will i try next time, but probably it will be orange honey blossom or coconut & vanilla 🙂
What do you prefer – body lotions and cremes, or body oils?
