My Favorite Vegan Body Oils
Today's topic is body oils! Yay!
I have recently acquired a love for oils, so basically I am now part of the "Oil Lovers Society" and proud of it!
You might already be an oil lover too or you might still be scurred to try them. I totally understand, I was there too. I thought "rub oils on my body? But why?" Now I slather them all over my body and don't see it any other way.
Don't be scared to try one, there are tons of them out there you just gotta find the right blend for you & your skin.
I have 3 to talk about today, hopefully, they will work for you.
When I first had the chance to try this body oil, I was bummed because I thought it was not vegan because of the brand name. It turns out the body along with the facial oils are vegan, yay! I got a travel size in a giveaway, it quickly became one of my favorites. This one comes in an amber glass bottle with a pump. It smells so delicious, a subtle vanilla scent, and it leaves my skin so soft and moisturized. The full size is $29 and you get 3.8 ounces of this amazing oil. I love, love love it!!! The scent is an uplifting vanilla and it lingers all day.
Looking for an affordable, easily obtainable oil? Them Pacifica is a brand to check out. You can find them at Ulta, Target, Whole Foods and other stores. They offer roll on dry oils, and just in case you don't know what that is. It's basically an oil that doesn't take long to absorb into your skin. The roll-on applicator makes it easier and faster to apply. You are busy and always in a hurry? This one might be the one for you. Pacifica has lots of scents, my favorites are the Island Vanilla and Indian Coconut. The smell lingers throughout the day and can double as a perfume. It's non-greasy, light, vegan, non-toxic and cruelty-free.
I got the chance to try a few products from Holiskin as PR. It quickly became a holy-grail brand. Check out my video review below. I just love how this oil makes my skin feel, soft for days! The scent on this one is citrus-y & fresh. It has good oils that nourish my skin. This brand is amazing, all natural, organic, vegan, holistic ingredients go into every product that Joshua (the creator/owner) makes.
Overall body oils have transformed my skin, they have replaced a lot of my body lotions. They are more natural and potent )depending on what brand you use) compared to traditional lotions that can have more preservatives. Oils also have vitamins & antioxidants again depending on what oil blend you get. I apply my oils right after my shower, I pat dry the excess water but not all of it. It did take a while for me to get use to, but I got it down now. The steam of the shower helps open up the pores of my skin, this will help the oil sink in. Some oils take longer to sink in, I usually don't dress until the oils are fully absorbed. Some oils can be pricey depending on what brands you get but they last longer because a little goes a long way. I see the difference in my skin, it's softer, more radiant, and more youthful looking every time I use oils.
Are you a body oil lover, what are your faves? If not why haven't you tried body oils? Girl, you are missing out!
Thanks for stopping by.
P.S. Remember to shop cruelty-free.
