My Opinion:
If you have been following my blog, you must be aware that I hardly ever review body moisturizers, and that's because I don't like body lotions or body butters. I really don't like creamy products on my body, but that's just a personal preference.
I used to have really oily skin, so for the past 20 years I've never really needed a body moisturizer, but for the last few years my skin is no longer oily and since then I've always used baby oil, it does the job, but I just got bored of it, and wanted to try something new.
I've recently finished a bottle of L'occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil (it took me 2 years to finish it), and I've really liked it and will definetly repurchase, but I'm currently taking a break from it and trying something new.
When I've first started to use the Desert Essence Jojoba Oil, I really hated it, it smells like oil, and I really do prefer something with a nicer scent, but I did notice that my skin felt really good after using it (smooth and soft), so in order to make this work, I've started to mix this with a fragrance oil.
I love the final results, my body feels soft/smooth, but most importantly it smells amazing. I admit that I did went overboard while mixing, I've pour half a bottle of the perfume oil into a bottle of jojoba oil, but the scent was just right, not overbearing, you need to be really close to detect the scent and it lingers on for the whole day.
I've still got a few bottles of perfume oil, so I'll definetly repurchase this Jojoba oil to tailor make my own body oil.
