Product Review: Neutrogena Body Oil

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.

Product Description:

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
  • inexpensive
  • 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.

damnvixen, i've never tried that nivea oil, but i guess if it works for you then you might not need to try neutrogena. but then again, it's great to try something new. LOL

nikki, yah it's nice nga. i'm glad you like it too!

i love this! but since my body is as dry as the sahara dessert, i use a more potent moisturizing lotion. usually, body butters. but i love this now during the summer since its not too heavy... i should review mine soon. :)

Crystal said...

shen, thanks for stopping by :) i'm glad you like this. yah, body butters are uber creamy but you're right they do feel heavy. :) can't wait to read your review.

This is my fave body oil and I love the scent. Moisturizing enough for my dry skin. But I agree that we have to wait for the skin to absorb it before going out, given how hot our weather is.


i used to love this when i was young!

ooh..makes me smile remembering how i was destined to be a kikay haha. :p

enjoy your stay! :)

Crystal said...

pammy, yeah kelangan talaga or it will feel sticky!

Steph said...
