Product Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Oil

I love my oils, especially in the colder months. It feels amazing using a nourishing oil after a warm shower. Apart from it feeling so good, my skin also thanks me for it.

In my pursuit of a nourishing oil, after running out of my Bio Oil, I came across this New Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil in my local Boots Store, and decided to give it a go.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. Beautiful compact packaging.
  2. It is a non sticky oil.
  3. It is very affordable at £3.99 for a 150ml bottle.
  4. You can get this nourishing oil in most stores – Boots, Superdrug eBay, Amazon, Asda, and so on.
  5. It contains virgin olive oil, which is great for the skin.
  6. I love the fragrance, it is very light and fresh.
  7. The oil is absorbed into my skin very quickly.

CONS

  1. This is for body use only, and should not be applied on the face. I always have to remember this fact, and it can be a bit of a hassle. I rather have an oil, I can apply from head to toe.

Overall, I would recommend this Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil to anyone in need of a nourishing oil, especially if you have a very dry skin, but I don’t see myself buying this particular oil again because of the inconvenience of not being able to use it on my face.

Product Review – Bio-Oil*

Are you into Body Oils like I am? If yes, then you should read this review.

I was introduced to Bio-Oil by a friend when I was at the University many moons ago. I fell in love with the body oil, and I have used it every day as part of my skin care routine. I mix some of the Bio-Oil with my mosituriser in a jar, and use everyday. Sometimes I apply the Bio-Oil directly to my skin after a shower.

My thoughts…

PROS

  1. It smells amazing.
  2. It is a thick oil, so a little goes a long way.
  3. It improves the appearance of skin pigmentation, scars and stretch marks, once used regularly.
  4. It moisturises the skin beautifully, replenishing the skin natural oils.
  5. It is long-lasting, as you will only need to use a tiny amount each time.
  6. It is readily available online and in stores – Amazon, Boots, eBay, Superdrug and others. Do make sure you shop around as the prices from store to store vary widely. For instance, as at today, you can get a 200 ml bottle at Boots for £19.99, while you can get the same sized bottle on Amazon for £12.99, and £6.50 for a £100ml bottle.
  7. The Bio-Oil leaves my skin smooth, shiny, soft and supple.

CONS

None.

 

The Bio-Oil performs just as promised, and that is why I have been a dedicated customer for years. However, I will be trying other body and hair oils. I have a few that have caught my eye and I shall be exploring them further. If you are in need of a body oil that performs brillantly, try the Bio-Oil, you would love it.

Have you tried the Bio-Oil? What are your thoughts? Which body oil are you currently loving?

 

 

 

Beauty Products for Busy Bloggers

Working from home alone with two babies under the age of 2 is hard work. I usually have to write and schedule posts well in advance to keep Fashion and Style Police running. Then comes the publishing of the posts, the sharing and resharing on the various social media channels, which I personally find is the hardest part of it all but I am gradually becoming a social butterfly.

It is a full-time job and I can only do so much when my babies are napping during the day, so that means I do most of my writing and other blog stuff at night and in the early hours of the morning, which also means I am ALWAYS under a lot of stress, and my face is usually messed up with all sort of stress related skin conditions.

I have been busy discovering products to help relieve stress and tension, and help with my facial breakouts, and I currently have my eye on the these two products sold on Just My Look:

Babyliss Pro Foot Spa

I don’t have the luxury of time to go to a salon for a proper pedicure or manicure so this foot spa will be so ideal. This smart product is created to help relieve stress and tension on tired and aching feet with a combination of massage heat and bubbles. I am usually up and about so it will be great to unwind with this in the evening after a busy day.  I will be using this a skin care oil, probably Bio Oil to perform the magic. This Babyliss Pro Foot Spa is a must-have this Christmas. A 20 minutes morning session in this will help me stay energised and relaxed all day.

Kaeso Calming Cleanser

If you read my previous product review, you will know my face breakouts a lot (click here if you missed the post) and it has become worse since I had my babies. At the end of day, the breakouts all come down to stress, the more stressed out I am, the more breakouts I have, so I need a face cleanser to help my sensitive skin look refresh and energised.

I have been struggling to manage it for months now and I am open to trying any product that promises a miracle. I have recently come across this Kaeso Calming Cleanser sold on the Just My Look website and I am eager to try it out for myself. This calming cleanser is specially designed for the sensitive skin, it gently removes makeup and other skin impurities, leaving the skin cleansed and soothed.

This Kaeso Calming Cleanser sounds like a product that will be right up my street. I will be trying it out.

Have you tried any of these products before? Do you have any beauty product(s) that helps relieve stress and tension?
