It's been a while since I've shared some product reviews, here it is! I've been using this body oil for almost two-months now, and I have no regrets over it. I've bought it from Watson Market Market branch while checking for my other beauty stuffs. I've decided to switch to using body oil than body lotion, because the later makes my skin greasy which makes me uncomfortably most of the time.
So I lather this body oil all over my body after shower. It makes me feel good and relaxed, and also mildly warm especially during colder days. Makes my skin smooth and supple like a baby's skin. Not bad for a more affordable body oil that cost me less than Php200.00 (less than $5)
Body Treats Moisturizing Body Oil contains mineral oil, Isopropyl Myristate, some fragrance, a little colorants and evening primrose oil.
Here's a little trivia about evening primrose:
Evening primrose oil is extracted from seeds of the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis) - a wildflower that grows in eastern and central North America. Originally, evening primrose was used by Native Americans to make poultices and heal wounds. It was also traditionally eaten and used as a leaf vegetable.
Nowadays evening primrose is mainly used for the production of its oil, which has a range of therapeutic properties. The oil is commonly used to help reduce the pains associated with premenstrual stress syndrome (PMS) and for its therapeutic benefits for the skin of the face, and for the body.
Evening primrose seeds have very high levels of the essential fatty acid "gamma-linolenic acid" (GLA), also known as "omega-6". The oil contains up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and 70% linolenic acid, which your body turns into GLA.
I am so happy that I've found this and now part of my daily routine! If you are very curious about this you can get it in Watson stores. I believe it comes in different variant like grapeseeds and sunflower. Or maybe soon I'll get it for you and make another review!
btw, I used picmonkey.com for deco-playing my photos here :D
