Everybody know I love to “oil-up” from head to toe before I sleep. I’m not someone that like to use body lotion or body butter but because I just love to oil myself up, anything that smell nice works for me. Okay I sounded so wrong saying I love to oil myself up haha! It’s not a secret too that I ABSOLUTELY love anything that bears the oil description. So when I was given a set of Argan Oil series from Body Drench, I was jumping up and down in excitement. I have a good reason for being so.
First thing first. Body Drench had quite a number of different series under their umbrella. The one I’ve been using is the Argan Oil body care series. We’ve heard so much about argan oil but I never used or try one before. According to Wikipedia Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.), endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. It is commonly referred as “liquid gold”, Argan Oil is an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It has powerful skin conditioning and anti-aging properties that help keep skin nourished and hydrated.
Argan Oil Emulsifying Body Dry Oil – RM69.90 for 177ml
Indulge your senses with this weightless body dry oil. Infused with Moroccan Argan oil, jojoba oil and rosemary extract to restore skin’s moisture and improve elasticity. Non-greasy and quickly absorbed.
I’m particularly happy to try this body dry oil. Isn’t it ironic that oil is meant to be oily but this is a “dry oil”. It has a rich argan oil scent to it and smell heavenly! I’m totally addicted to the scent.
It comes in a normal spray bottle. It can get pretty messy spraying directly to the skin as it gets to the side like sofa or floor so I’d suggest covering the nozzle with the other hand or spray onto the palm and massage to desired area. 177ml bottle can last long. I’ve been using this diligently everyday and see no sign of the oil being used up.
Body oil are better off to be used after shower while the body is still damp but I can tell you that this dry oil is suitable to be used anytime. Reason is simple. It’s dry oil! It spray out as a lightweighted oil. Once I massage the oil in the oil dries up and disappear into the skin. There is no traces of oil at all which is amazing and weird at the same time. I’m being really generous with this body dry oil. The scent is just too addictive.
I like this alone on hot days where I don’t feel like I want to be overly sticky with body lotion or butter.
Here is the list of ingredients for those that are interested.
Argan Oil Ultra Hydrating Body Lotion – RM69.90 for 236ml
A creamy body lotion that deeply restores and nourishes your skin. Enriched with Moroccan Argan oil and aloe vera to moisturize, sooth and protect, while you uplift your senses with a subtle sweet scent of grapefruit and Argan.
If I love the dry oil so much there’s no reason for me not to like the body lotion. It’s thick and creamy and I like to top this up after dry oil.
This body lotion also comes in a typical normal pump bottle. It has an “Open” and “Stop” nozzle. Always like this type of pump for body lotion. However after a few usage I notice that some lotion is leaked out through the pump neck. I wonder how that happens.
I don’t really like body lotion but somehow I just like this one due to the scent. The scent is exactly the same as dry oil. Although the body lotion is infused with grapefruit, my nose can’t pick up that ingredient. All I can smell is argan oil.
I normally apply the body lotion just before I sleep, after dry oil of course. Dry oil smells nice but not moisturizing enough especially on cold nights. It is absolutely luxurious to slather a thick lotion on before sleep. The scent is heavenly, it’s creamy and thick so it’s moisturizing but not sticky to sleep with.
And here is the list of ingredients for the body lotion.
Argan Oil Replenishing Body Butter – RM69.90 for 226g
An intensive creamy all-over body butter. It absorbs easily, helping to condition, soften and smooth the skin.
I’m alternating body lotion with this body butter on daily basis. It serves the same purpose so there is no need to apply all three dry oil, lotion and butter.
What I like about this body butter is that it comes with a flip-cap unlike other body butter available in the market. It makes this lazy bum more hardworking in using this body butter due to the convenient of the packaging.
Although this is body butter, I find that it’s not overly sticky or oily. It feels just like body lotion. It’s also thick and creamy but absorbed in fast. Something different from what I’ve tried previously.
The scent on the other hand…you’ve guessed it right. It’s exactly the same with dry oil and body lotion! Which explains why I like the Argan Oil series very much 🙂
The extensive list of ingredients for body butter just in case you’re interested.
It’s hard for me to explain how exciting this range is unless you tried it personally and fell in love with the scent just like how I did. If you are someone that don’t like stickiness or body lotion / butter like me, don’t worry. I bet you will like this range all thanks to the wonderful scent.
