      Is this the Ultimate body oil - I think not despite the lovely scent

      This is one I bought when it first came out some time ago as it was on special offer. I was taken in by the label saying it was enriched with 4 precious oils - Argan, Macademia, Almond and Rose. That may well be true but I strongly suspect that the rest is petroleum based given the price and the fact they say 'enriched ' with and not all natural.

      It is a dry oil spray which I am ever convinced by as the oil is difficult to spray accurately and I get it all over the bathroom floor instead of on me. I far rather have a pour out oil.

      The bottle is a really stupid shape. It might look like a cool droplet but for a spray it is rubbish. You have to hold the thin neck and spray. once it gets slippery that is nigh on impossible with one hand. I ended up unscrewing the top and pouring mine onto my hand.

      This is a body oil but I have read about people using it on their face - not sure that is a great idea as it is probably too greasy and will clog the pores. The only oil I use on my face is a face oil as it is 100% natural.

      Garnier say this "Ultimate Beauty Oil is a perfecting oil, 5 times more concentrated in nutrients than our regular body lotion." I am not convinced as I find the lotion goes in to my skin better. I find the oil only really work well if I spray it on when I am warm and wet from a bath or shower and then it does spread and soak in well and saves drying with a towel too!

      Garnier also say " The natural oils of Garnier soothe and nourish your skin so it looks refreshed and feels ten times more smooth and supple." I am not sure how they measure the ten times but again I am not convinced my skin looked any better than using my usual body lotion and certainly not as nice feeling as using a plain almond oil or my lovely Avocado oil both of which are all 100% natural so do sink into the skin rather than sitting on the surface.

      The four natural oils do make for a lovely smelling oil and that is a positive . If you have a nut allergy then take care as this does have macadamia nut and almond oil.

      Persoanally I would buy a cold pressed natural oil and add your own essential oils and it would do a better job that this and cost about the same. I was not that impressed.

      Lovely smelling body oil

      I have been using a bottle of the Garnier Ultimate body oil for a few weeks now.

      Packaging
      The bottle is a tear shape and clear so you can see how much is left. The top is a pump dispenser but not a spray.

      First impressions
      I love this body oil's fragrance... its key ingredients are lemon, mandarin and grapefruit so as you can imagine it is really fruity and citrus smelling.

      In use
      I have been using this for a few weeks as an anti cellulite treatment although I use it on the full length of my legs and find it massages in really well. I use around 18 pumps in to the palm of my hand to do a full leg and you really can see the level go down in the bottle. Perhaps I use too much per application then!

      Price
      This bottle of oil is £8 which is not too expensive as body oils go.

      My thoughts
      I use this as a treatment and like to apply it first thing in the morning when I have a few minutes spare so it can work its magic all day. I like using it under jeans or leggings but am conscious of getting oil on my work trousers so skip it that day and do it in the evening instead.

      Final word
      I have been enjoying using this as the months turn colder and I do like the way it feels on my skin. I don't know whether it has improved cellulite dimples but I do accept I have them and this is not something I am probably going to turn around all that quickly! I think I would buy this again but would look out for it on offer or at least look to get some Boots points back when buying it!
