Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates. Like I've said, I'm still in the US and since I don't have my stuff, I don't have much resources here. Anyway, during our stay here, my sister bought a bottle of Neutrogena Body Oil to keep her skin moisturized. I'm not in an uber cold part of the US, but it can get cold at night so it's still important to keep skin hydrated.
Wanna know if this works? Read on.
Light sesame formula. A sheer moisturizing experience. The Sensual Moisturizer: Experience Neutrogena Body Oil. Its light sesame formula glides in easily to moisturize dry skin. It's so sheer it vanishes into shower-damp skin leaving it soft and silky, with a radiant, healthy glow. No moisturizer can touch this experience.
I have used Neutrogena Body Lotion with sesame oil in the past and loved it, but I was skeptical about body oils, because we live in a tropical country. But using this, I was surprised to find that it does exactly what it says: it moisturizes while being light at the same time. It's easily absorbed by the skin, and doesn't leave you with that icky feeling. t's great for people who have dry skin or who work or stay in an air conditioned environment.
Here are the pros and cons:
- has a light, pleasant smell
- goes on light and easily absorbed by the body
- a little goes a long way
- does a good job of moisturizing
- locally available
- despite this being a light oil, this is still an oil, so expect that it feels a tad bit hot when applied (as opposed to the cooling effect of a lotion)
- if you plan to use it before staying in a warm environment, it's best to wait a bit after application to make sure that it's totally absorbed by the body so you won't feel icky
Conclusion? If lotions are not enough to keep your skin moisturized, why not try an oil? It's a good product to have around. It's also handy when you plan to travel to colder countries.
Where to buy: At leading department stores and drug stores for P400+. I can't remember the exact price.
