Experience with The Body Shop Strawberry Beautifying Oil
This The Body Shop strawberry beautifying oil is packed in a very beautiful sheer translucent plastic bottle which is of yellowish gold color. The top part has the flip top cap which is quite tight hence, there is no worrying that the oil will spill. But still I cannot take it in my bag just like that.
Smell and Features:
The oil smells heavenly of strawberries and it is really mild and soothing. The oil is not a very greasy oil but it is a dry oil which is made from the cold pressed technique. By the cold pressed technique we mean that the oils are extracted from the strawberry seeds with just applying the pressure and that’s it. There are no chemicals, adulterants etc involved. In fact, cold pressed oils are the best to have as they are good for use. Like the almond cold pressed oils are good for skin as well. These are the purest forms of the oils which are safe for using on the skin as well.
Now coming back to this oil here! The oil is quite runny as I was assuming it to be thick oil but it is not. I applied it on the back of my hand and I loved the subtle smell along with the nice moisturization feel. The oil is not greasy but has a lightweight texture so, if you like to use it in your skin, then go ahead. I don’t think that this oil will be comedogenic in nature. I used it few days on my skin and has seen good changes like the glow, hydration etc.Furthermore, I only used it for few days as I liked more as a body oil and loved that this kind of gives a soft glow on the skin even in summers. I tend to stay away from oily products in summers but this is quite like a dry oil which does not make the skin oily or extremely shiny looking.
How to use this Beautifying oil
To use this The Body Shop strawberry beautifying oil just take few drops and it gets smeared on your skin in a nice manner. The oil is runny and is easy to spread hence you will not really need a lot of it. The skin glimmers and shines but I did not feel any heaviness due to this. Now this was how this The Body Shop strawberry beautifying oil fared for the skin now coming to the hair part. This oil can also be used on the hair to give the hair a subtle shine but not that typical oil like gresiness and stickiness. I will only take few drops and would massage this all over the hair. The oil gets absorbed and applied on the hair beautifully like there is nothing that you will feel that this oil has stuck only at one place and have made the hair sticky mess. No the light weight dry texture is ideal for hair as well.
