Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil

Wednesday, 4 July 2012

So after my previous 'depressing' post, I now have the energy and the mental capacity to return to the world of beauty blogging. I've got quite a lot of exciting products lined up and have gone on a little hair product splurge. :) If you have read my blog before I normally complain about my dry and over processed hair. Now I saw this new oil from the Body Shop and was initially interested in it as being used as a face oil. 

This oil is from the Body Shop and retails at £9 which I thought for a 100ml bottle was quite pricey as I expected it to be bigger. They do a wide selection across of their different scents. I chose Shea as it is my joint favourite with Coconut but I didn't want to splash out on two of them. As you can see from the pictures above I was so desperate to use it before I photographed them. For some reason the top picture looks different to the rest but I think it is because they flash didn't go off. (Sorry!!) 

Anyway enough of my ramble, let's get down to the product. I hated this product as a face oil, I'm not so sure whether it was just the feel of using a face oil or whether I applied too much product but it felt to thick for my skin. But as this oil can be used on hair, body and face and wow my hair drunk it up so quickly. I now have found out that my hair loves oil. It is really soft, I must admit that the effects don't last as long as I would had hoped and even though you don't need that much on each application but you have to keep reapplying so I don't the product will last a long time. It isn't a miracle product by any means but it certainly isn't bad at all. Though I do need to get some Moroccan Oil in my life :).

Has anyone else tried this or used different scents?


  1. I have the grapefruit version and I'm totally in love with it. I haven't used it on my hair yet as I use a vo5 oil, but I've been using it on my face overnight like a face mask and it's really cleared up my spots which I was so surprised at! I also use it after my shower before I towel dry and it's made my skin really soft :)

  3. Hmm, seems like an interesting product. I'm still a bit iffy about using oils, but I've heard so many good things about them that I really need to give them a try! x
