When to Apply ?
→ In the morning, apply Beautifying Oil on your face after your usual moisturizer to enjoy an instant natural glow and radiance.
→ At Night, you can use it before applying your night cream.
→ The Body Shop Beautifying Oil can also be used on your body any time when you want that healthy glow. It is perfect on its own or on top of your usual moisturiser (Body Butter or Lotion) so that you can enjoy an instant illumination.
For hair use one or two drops through the ends of damp hair and blow dry you get a lovely sheen on the hair.

The Good 

  • I have tried body oils in the past and though they left my skin soft and moisturized, they always felt greasy and heavy. This oil has a lightweight texture and feels non greasy on skin.
  • The cocoa butter scent is to die for. It smells wonderful like the softest most comfortable subtle chocolate.
  • It’s perfect for summer – light, not sticky, and it sinks right into your skin. Really does beautify my skin. I will definately replace body butters with this for the summer.
  • I find that the oil is easily absorbed in the skin. I intially thought it would be too oily, but my skin just slurped it up and stayed happy! You can use beautifying oil rather than lotion if you’re in a rush.
  • Can be used after shaving your legs or even as a shaving oil.
  • My hair and skin look shinier than ever. Just be careful not to put too much on your hair though, it can get really oily. One or two drops on your palm, rub your palms together and apply on your slightly wet hair for best result.
  • I applied a small amount to the frizzy bits and voila! It smoothened it out, and even defined my curls without weighing it down.
  • Yes, this item is on the expensive side, but a little really goes a long way.

The Bad

  • The fragrance doesn’t last long.
  • The packaging is not travel friendly. The Beautifying oil can leak from the cap.

For Oily Skin Beauties:
Avoid applying this oil on face. You can enjoy using this on your body.
For Dry Skin Beauties: Use it with body butter for extra moisture and glow on your skin.

Final Verdict
I use it on my hair, face and body. And have been very pleased with the result. Will definitely repurchase !  Smile

My Rating : 5/5

  5. I’ve seen someone talk about this and now I’m curious as well! Never understood the concept of beauty oils, but it’s still interesting! Grin

    • Even for me it was difficult to understand what dry or beautifying oil was till I found this magical bottle Grin… I guess this kind of oil has a very lightweight texture Smile Smile

  21. This looks great…. would check it out the next time I visit TBS…
    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment… ! Smile
    Let’s talk about everything

  22. WOW. I have never tried a beautifying oil before… the review is really tempting me to try one Smile
    Is it different from the regural oils (coconut, olive, sesame etc)? Can’t those give the same results?

    • Hey dear Beautifying oil is quite different ! This is more like a cosmetic thing den a skin care product… It is mostly used on body or hair to give a healthy glow. It absorbs quickly den normal oil. Its kind of dry oil with a very light texture.
      xoxo Shreya <3 <3

  23. this seems a pretty good product and the fact that it helps in managing frizz pleases me. Very nice detailed review dear Smile

  24. I have dry skin, so your tip about using it with a body butter sounds great!
