If I was stranded on a deserted island, I mean like Lost style, I would probably die without this stuff. Okay…well, oil and sand probably aren’t the best combo, but you get it. THAT is how in love I am.
In my later college years I was watching this YouTube video by Lo Bosworth (RIP Laguna Beach) and she raved about the Neutrogena Body Oil. BELIEVE ME when I say I am no stranger to the drugstore beauty aisle, but for some reason this product never caught my eye over the years. I was super interested in trying a body oil in general and Lo literally has the most gorgeous skin ever, so I figured I would try it out!
Annndddd now I can’t live without it. I am a full-blown lunatic about staying hydrated and moisturized for a number of reasons that I have talked about before – you can check it out in this post. If I don’t moisturize my body within 7 minutes of getting out of the shower, I have a mental breakdown. I feel like a reptile. But sometimes I am SO lazy and just don’t want to put forth the effort to fully rub in lotion all over. That’s when I reach for the Neutrogena Body Oil, which is like 75% of the time. Right when I get out of the shower and my skin is still a bit damp, aka within 3 minutes, I rub this stuff all over.
What do I love about it? Well for one it’s literally so easy. It takes MAYBE 5 seconds for each leg and arm. Plus it smells fab. And I love good fragrance if you guys don’t already know. I don’t know how exactly to describe it, but it’s just a nice clean scent. Your sheets will smell so good I swear.
Also, this is a big thing that you may have never even REALLY thought about. You know in the winter when it’s cold and then you get out of the shower and you’re even colder? It’s THE worst. AND on top of that, lotion tends to have a cooling feel when you lather it on. So now you’re borderline getting frostbite. THIS is why I love the body oil. When you massage it into your skin, it actually feels kind of warming.
But also in the summer when you’re wearing a chic leather mini, slather a little on your legs and voila! Instant supermodel legs. I can’t make this stuff up, guys.
The Neutrogena Body Oil is also veeerrryyy moisterizing, but not in a greasy way, you know? “Oil” sounds kind of scary, but don’t freak. It’s very light and soaks into the skin so nicely. Do note that a little goes a long way, but sometimes I tend to overdo it and use a half-dollar size for each leg LOL. However, I’ve had the same bottle for over a year (hence why there’s only a small bit in the bottle in my photos) and there is STILL some left. Bye bye scaly winter reptile legs.
Okay ladies – use THIS LINK to purchase your Neutrogena Body Oil before it REALLY starts getting cold, alrighty??
