Body Oils have become one of my many new obsessions during my hiatus from Product Girl. I was never a body oil kind of girl, the idea of slathering myself in any kind of oil was completely unappealing… which is odd when I consider how much I love perfume oils! One day I was in a pinch and wanted a big dose of moisture to pamper my skin with and reached for a gift with purchase from the Jo Malone counter, my beloved Nectarine Blossom & Honey in Bath Oil form. I was instantly hooked and wondered why I didn’t try this before. It was one of those “D’oh!” moments. 😉
Besides leaving my skin super soft and glowing, I realized that the scent that lingers on my skin long after the oil has absorbed lasts practically all day. I do not need to layer on any additional scents to get all day wear. I’ve been a hardcore layering girl for some time now so using one product to scent my skin was a revelation. And a nice added bonus? Using a body oil right before bed also scents your linens. I can’t tell you how much I love getting into bed at night now, I lay my head on my pillow and I can smell Amazing Grace on my sheets. Even doctor’s such as Dr. Angelo Cuzalina recommend oils at night because your body has the most time to fully absorb the moisturizing benefits with no chance of having it be washed/wiped off.
