I love a good body oil. With just the right use of oil(s), body oils can be moisturizing without being greasy. Farmaesthetics won me over with their Deep Lavender Rub and Vapour Bath Elixir (which I still use all the time), and so I was thrilled to try another product. In short, their Midnight Honey Bath & Beauty Oil is divine, AND – I’m giving one away!
As you may guess from the name, Midnight Honey smells of…. honey! They describe it as “richly round, darkly-scented” and I agree. This isn’t a sweet or fake honey scent – it is a rich, sensual, authentic honey. I absolutely love it.
Not only is the scent amazing, I love the texture. It is light but still very moisturizing. It sinks in quickly and totally, not leaving any greasiness behind. One thing I also noticed is that it leaves my skin with this glow that lasts all day. Not glow like shiny, or shimmery, but just this healthy glow. I find myself admiring my own arms, and then sniffing them. A little odd, I know ;o)
And the best part? The size of the bottle! It is 7 fluid ounces, which is quite a lot for an oil since you need less than traditional lotions. I’ve been slathering this all over my legs and arms every morning for the past week and a half and have made only a small dent in the bottle. I bet this will last for several months.
Now for the ingredients!
Ingredients: sweet soy oil*, honey absolute & vitamin e
*certified organic ingredients
So it doesn’t get much simpler than this! To be honest, I’m not sure how sweet soy oil differs from soy oil. I looked online for sweet soy oil but was not able to find anything. Either way, the soy oil included IS organic which makes me happy. Soy and corn are two products that are usually genetically modified so having organic ensures no GMO. Since it is an oil-only product, it doesn’t need a preservative but the vitamin E included will help it last longer and prevent the oil from oxidizing.
Overall, I love this body oil. I love the scent, the texture, everything. I have never used a body oil made only from soy oil, but I am now a convert. I see they have an entire Sweet Soy Oil series which I may just have to buy as a gift to myself!
