Body Oils are definitely a staple in mine and many other beauty bloggers’ bathrooms! But for me this is quite a recent thing as up until the day I received a mini sample of the Nuxe Body Oil in one of my GlamBox, I very much was a body lotion kindda gal…
But hey, as a beauty blogger, it is my duty to try out different things so that I can share my thoughts on the same with you girls so here I have put 3 body oils I have personally tried out to the test and the results are… well… not that surprising!
Read on to find out more!
Garnier Body Dry Perfecting Oil (AED 45) – view here:
The cheapest of the bunch AND, surprisingly the nicest smelling one! That’s kind of where the compliments stop. The texture isn’t as nice as the other 2, much ‘oilier’… which may sound weird for a dry oil I know. But no one wants to feel/look ‘greasy’ right?
The packaging isn’t the most practical either and just ends up looking a little worse for wear as you can see in the photograph…
Applying this oil is quiet messy as it tends to stick to the plastic bottle and thus making it hard to handle… If you’re using this one make sure to put a towel on the floor or risk breaking your neck next time you walk into your bathroom… I can tell you cos it almost happened to me!
Final mark: 5/10
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (AED110) – view here:
The most famous of all body oil, the Huile Prodigieuse by Nuxe is a cult product. And rightly so!
It smells delicious, has a lovely texture although again, a little on the ‘oily’ side, the packaging looks good (the one in the photo was a limited edition but is super cute), and the application process is fairly easy…
A really good product that fits into most beautistas’ budget!
Final mark: 8/10
Caudalie Divine Oil (AED165 ) – view here:
The most luxurious of the 3 has got to be the Divine Oil by Caudalie which I discovered only recently. And what an amazing product! This one really is the ticket.
The packaging looks fabulous & the fragrance is deliciously fresh & rich. The spray-on bottle makes it super easy to apply.
The texture is perfect! Not to oily but hydrating enough, it leaves a nice subtle sheer on the skin which will make you look ‘glowy’ as opposed to ‘greasy’
Only downer here is the price tag which is a tad higher than the others but honestly, as much as I love a good bargain, I also appreciate that sometimes you have got to pay a little more to get that exceptional quality.
Final mark: 10/10
