Beloved readers, I said this about the lavender-scented oil of this brand:
“If you have followed me long enough you know I have mixed my own perfumed oils for years, out of my preference for oil over lotion for keeping my skin soft and glowy.
This is for everyone out there that loves the sensuous feel of oil, lovely fragrance, and could not DIY something to save their life. (Or those that do not always feel like making everything from scratch.)”
That is true about this Shea Moisture body oil, too.
It’s hard for me to contain the things I love about it to one post. As for the “firming and toning” bit? I didn’t experience either, but I did enjoy “plumping and glow-i-fying.”
(I am content.)

This body oil left my skin plumped, soft, and glowing for hours with a subtle, lingering scent. This is a lovely addition to the hair and skin care Coconut & Hibiscus lines from Shea Moisture. It performed superbly with a lovely scent–if you care for fruity scents.
I admit that I don’t care for such scents, but I enjoyed this. It’s far lighter than the lavender-scented oil from this brand; yet, it gently lingers after application.
How is it able to do all of the above? Its lovely ingredients. (See below.)
