“ Brand: Primark / Type: Body Oil / What it does: Stimulates, „
My skin has been rather dry of late in part on my skin and so when I saw this in Primark for a pound (usual price) and it was sat looking at my in the queue begging me to be bought I decided to give it a go. I may have no one at moment to massage or to massage me but there's no need to not massage myself if need be I am an independent woman after all lol
250ml clear plastic bottle with a black plastic flip top lid situated to the top of it. In black and orange writing on the front I'm told it's Innersense Pure Aromatherapy Products, Stimulating Body Oil which is packed with pure essential oils of Bergamot & Clementine to uplift the soul and senses, while Jojoba Oil moisturises ans rejuvenates the skin to perfection. At the bottom of the bottle in really small writing I'm told it's formulated with pure passion exclusively for Primark and there's a leafy pattern drawn on in orange and cream up the side of the bottle. On the back I'm told a bit about the about the product, ingredients are listed, contact details for Primark are given, size is stated I'm given directions for use and then told all that in a variety of different languages and finally there is a bar-code on there. All in all it's quite nice packaging and doesn't scream I cost a quid and I am impressed at the information that is given!

Well you flip open the lid and dispense a small amount of the light orangy coloured liquid into the palms of your hands. Smell wise it smells very slightly of tangy, zesty oranges though the smell is natural, not harsh and not in your face at all. It's just a very nice smelling fragrance that isn't too heavy or overpowering at all.
Consistency wise, well it's of course an oil though it isn't as greasy as I was expecting it to be (though it is oily of course!). A little goes a very long way indeed and although it's an oil it has a little bit of body to it though it is runny. You rub it into the skin, which is a warming experience and of course a little goes a long way so just don't over do it, so be warned! It feels smooth and light and not thick or sludgy but again that comes down to using the right amount and not pouring it on the body and being greedy with it! you can always add more if desired anyway!
It massages in wonderfully, releasing the lovely fragrance as it goes which is fairly fragrant but once it's been applied and it dries your only left with a slight hint of fragrance on the skin so you can forget about it and use your usual fragrances as normal if desired.
Once on the skin, skin feels smooth and hydrated though not overly so and in a fake way or anything. This actually blends into skin and although you can feel you have a bit of oil on your skin it really doesn't feel thick or fake at all and it really hydrated my dry skin patches nicely and made my cellulite and stretch marks feel smoother all day long. It's great for working tired muscles with and has a nice uplifting feel as Primark promises us and is suitable yo use on men or/and women! Skin is left feeling fabulous but not greasy. Sure you have to wait a while for it to dry into the skin before getting dressed or touching anything because it's an oil after-all and there is transference if your not careful but again this can be controlled it you only use a little.
Great for a nice massage, economical and has a lovely uplifting smell to it when it's being applied. Not too greasy and kind to the skin if you use it wisely. Am I a fan? Absolutely. I won't lie and say it's the best massage oil I've ever used but for the price of it and quality it's reasonably good and the size is so huge that it being an oil it's going to last a very long time indeed.
It does pep me up, lift my spirits and because it doesn't leave my body like an oil lick it's a pleasure to use! Great!
