To call this an 'Ultimate beauty oil' is a bit cheeky as it didn't exactly blow me away and I didn't see anything 'Ultimate' about it.
It's good but not great.
Blended with four main oils:
I used this because of the claim and due to the power of the brand being really good and very well respected, I assumed this would be a knockout and I would notice a difference but I struggled to see a major difference if any.
My skin was only slightly dry and I just basically wanted something to nourish it and protect but I didn't see an impact, after about 12 hours I had to reapply the oil which I was disappointed to do.
I purchased this on special offer at Superdrug and I am a little grateful that I didn't pay more.
The oil doesn't sink in very well either. I used a small amount to begin with and it took half an hour to sink in after a few hours my skin was not noticeably soft at all. It didn't look like I had applied anything to be honest.
The scent is quite possibly the best thing about this product.
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.
I have been using a bottle of the Garnier Ultimate body oil for a few weeks now.
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.
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.
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!
This bottle of oil is £8 which is not too expensive as body oils go.
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.
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!
