Review: Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil Skin Perfector

It's no secret that I love a good body oil. There's something really satisfying about just how moisturising they are and how long the hydration they give lasts. I picked up the Garnier Ultimate Body Oil Skin Perfector after reading a couple of very positive reviews. I know you might have read your fill about this product but I've been so impressed that I really wanted to write about it.

Garnier's Ultimate Beauty Oil immediately impressed me because it has a spray. An oil with a spray saves so much product from going to waste and also makes it really easy to apply it lightly - which is usually all you need. The only downside to the packaging is that the shape of the bottle makes it difficult to hold when you have wet or oily hands (from rubbing in the product). So I like to spray this all over my body and only then go back and rub it in. It makes the whole process a lot easier and also a lot quicker.

The oil itself, if applied lightly, sinks in very quickly but stills gives you enough time to massage it into your skin. You won't need to wait around for it to dry or absorb and it leaves your skin really soft. I usually have to moisturise every day because I have quite dry skin but when I use oils, and this one was especially good, I can usually go two days without needing to apply anything. The Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil also smells gorgeous, and you get a good whiff of the different oils that make it up. The scent does linger on the skin but I think you'll be glad of it because it's a very sophisticated scent that isn't at all overwhelming.

Using this every other day for about two months I had used about four-fifths of it up. I've sadly left the rest in London because it wouldn't fit in my bags but I'll be finishing it up when I go home for Christmas. I really love it and it's great for those who don't like heavy, greasy products because it honestly surprised me at how quickly and easily it absorbed into my skin. I'm a convert and all the positive reviews I've read hit the nail on the head. This is a drugstore beauty and at £7.99 (and often reduced from that price) I think it is quite the bargain! 

Have you used this body oil before? What moisturising products do you love?

    Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Dupe!

  7. I love this stuff so much! I'm usually not a fan of oils but this felt so much more silky than others I've tried, if that makes sense? I thought the only downside was the packaging as well, but because if you touch it with greasy hands the label starts to flake away, the most irritating thing ever and actually led me to stop using it!

  8. Sounds like a great product, I might have to try this :) x
