It wasn’t long ago that the thought of using oil by way as a beauty product would leave me pulling my “serious?” face, but fast forward 6 months and skincare and haircare aisles are full of these wonder products.
After using numerous hair oils, a handful of skin oils and even a cleansing oil, this Organic Luxury Oil from Tropic Skincare is the latest addition to my “oil” collection.
Made with 100% natural ingredients, this Luxury Oil is rich and moisturising enriched with Organic Rosehip, Organic Golden Jojoba and Organic Coconut oils. Its also marketed as one of those “one product, multitude of uses” genius ideas for girls like me who tend to buy a 100 products for a 100 different jobs, I have everything I need right here in this beautiful glass bottle. I’ve been using this in the ends of my hair when wet as a deep conditioning treatment when my ends are slightly frazzled and rubbed into nails and cuticles to keep them hydrated. My main use for this is as an all over body moisturiser. I like to apply fresh out of the bath when my skin is still wet (stop imagining me in the bath, stop it!) as I find it really traps the moisture and turns my winter zapped skin silky and smooth.
(It does say you can use this as a massage oil but I don’t have anyone to test that out with at the moment, but I’m open to offers, in the name of research.)
This oil solidifies at cooler temperatures, and due to the current climate my bathroom is passing for the Antarctic. You simply place the bottle into a bowl of warm water (I put mine in the sink) to return it to to liquid. With some other body oils I’ve tried I find that I can use far too much and end up looking like an extra from a lads mag shoot, but because of how this bottle is designed it releases only a droplet at a time – and a little goes a long way. The Bergamot, Lime & Neroli oils in this create a gorgeous citrusy scent that lingers on my skin all day (and leaves my bathroom smelling spa like)
The Organic Luxury Oil retails at £25.00 for 100ml, but with so little going such a long way (and I have a lot of body to cover) its more than worth it.
