I have been very impressed with this product. It is to be used right after you step out of the shower or bath to perfume and silken your skin. I have acquired quite a collection of bath and body products, and this is one of my favorites. I was hesitant to try this at first, as the word ‘oil' almost scared me away. All I could think is that it would be very greasy and weigh heavily on my skin. It does not. This is a light oil spray that does a good job at moisturizing your skin. It comes in a nice clear bottle with a spray nozzle on top. I really like how easy it is to use. You just spray it all over, and rub it in. It actually absorbs pretty quickly, and I find it easier to use and faster to apply than a regular moisturizing cream. It leaves a slight sheen to your skin at first, but that fades away after a few minutes.

This does a nice job and smoothing out dry, itchy skin and I have even had good results using it on my heels that have become dry from wearing nothing but sandals and even walking barefoot. If your skin is extremely dry, this might not be moisturizing enough for you. However, this is great to use in the summer months, especially on skin that has just been exfoliated and after you shave your legs to make them silky smooth.

I bought this in the Papaya scent and it's wonderful! It's a very nice tropical scent that lingers for a bit, but is not overwhelming. The ingredients are mostly natural including natural fragrances, sesame oil, and sunflower oil. It costs $12 for 3.3 ounces which I think is a little expensive. It does last quite a while though, so it's worth it to me.
