Moisturizing my skin is such a chore for me, sometimes I get so exhausted!!! But no matter how boring the process is, I try to keep up with it as much as possible. This also pushes me to keep on trying new products, and this time I ended up picking up Neutrogena Body Oil. When I spotted this Neutrogena body oil in NewU, it took me back to days when I used Johnson&Johnson baby oil for my skin. So I decided to give this oil a try.
Price: INR 499 for 250 ml
Shelf Life: 36 months
“Experience Neutrogena Body Oil. Its light sesame formula glides on easy 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.”
Directions for use:
“After Shower or bath: While skin is damp,smooth on a few drops to help seal in moisture. Let your body dry naturally, or simply pat dry with towel.
In the Bath: Add to water and soften your skin while you bathe.”
The Neutrogena Bath Oil comes in their standard packing, transparent plastic bottle with black cap.The oil is light yellow in color. The oil has a strong smell, which some may find pleasant, though it is slightly overpowering and artificial for me. But luckily, the smell is not that strong on skin and mellows down after application on skin.
The formula of the oil is amazingly light. It is a sesame seed oil based formula, something which I have never come across before. It is very easy to work with, and gets absorbed in the skin in the matter of seconds. i use it on slightly damp skin, and it gets absorbed without leaving any greasy feeling. Immediately after application, skin feels soft and hydrated. I tried it on towel dried skin as well, and it got absorbed in skin like a dream! It keeps skin hydrated for couple of hours on its own, and for a very long time if followed by a moisturizer. In summer, it might be able to sustain on its own.
The application is so much easier than those in-shower body moisturizers, as you don’t need to wash them off and this one hydrates much better. I tried it on my skin couple of hours after a shower, and it hydrated my skin equally well. There was no greasy feeling, though it left a shine on the skin. But the shine was not like the one you get with other oils, it was much less intense. I am really enjoying using this oil, and I am so happy that I gave it a try.
Rating:4/5 ( the fragrance is too artificial for my liking)
Will I recommend Neutrogena Body Oil to others???
Yes!!! If you are looking for in-shower hydrating options, this one is a great one to try. The only suggestion is to check the smell before buying so that you don’t find it overpowering later on.
Have you tried the Neutrogena Body Oil??? Which one is you favorite body oil if not this one???
