I love dry oils. Sadly, not many brands are selling them. So when I received an order from The Body Shop recently, which contained a Beautifying Oil, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that these oils are in fact, dry oils! (I had no idea because the french version of the website doesn't say it's a dry oil!) Needless to say I didn't wait too long to order more, I can't resist a good dry oil!

The Body Shop's Beautifying Oils can be used on the body, hair and face. These oils moisturizes, smoothes and illuminates. They are formulated with many skin loving oils, such as sweet almond, sunflower and marula oils. Each Beautifying Oil has a slightly different formula depending of the scent : Brazil Nut contain brazil nut oil, Strawberry is formulated with strawberry seed oil, etc. Most of them have the same moisturizing properties and texture, but I noticed that Cocoa Butter seems to be a bit more heavy and Strawberry sink into the skin a bit faster.
I love how fast these oils sink into the skin, they are a bit oily for a couple of minutes but after that, my skin is soft and not greasy at all! They leaves a natural glow on the skin and doesn't look oily. Also, these oils doesn't contain any shimmers so they are fine to use as a regular moisturizer everyday (unlike shimmery dry oils that I prefer to use for a special occasion). For those of you who own the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, these are less heavy! Please note that I only tried them on my body so I don't know how they would work in my hair or on my face.
I own 5 fragrances (Coconut, Mango, Cocoa Butter, Strawberry, Brazil Nut) and I love all of them! Definitely get Mango or Strawberry if you love fruity scents. Brazil Nut, Cocoa Butter and Coconut are super yummy and you will love them if you usually like sweet and foody scents. By the way, Coconut is my go-to scent for the summertime!
Am I the only girl out there who is addicted to dry oils? I love these Beautifying Oils so much, I think it's a great way to enhance the skin's radiance! My skin is supple, soft and deliciously scented, without feeling greasy or sticky!
