“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Body Oil / Subcategory: Body Treatment „
When it comes to products from Virgin Vie it really isn't a brand that I have come into very much contact with at all though I am aware of it of course. I actually spotted this on a market costing a pound a bottle and because I am prone to very dry skin indeed I decided it had to be worth getting a couple of bottles of the stuff to give it a go.
The oil comes in a see through glass bottle that has a pull on/off black cap/lid to the top of it which covers a sprayer to the top of it too. On the front of the bottle I am told that it is Therapy Spa Virgin Vie Skin Lustre Body Oil. On the back of the bottle other information includes being given a list of ingredients and the size is stated and contact details for the manufacturer are given. It's a nice enough bottle though a little chunky to handle and easy enough to press and use the sprayer. In the bottle the liquid appears a tranquil blue colour but when sprayed it is transparent.
All you do with this is use it on a clean body and to where you want a little hydration. It is a light oil so not too greasy and like I have stated already it is clear in colour and just like water though of course a little thicker and a bit oily allowing it to be easy to spread onto the skin.
Smell wise, to me this is rather masculine really. It reminds me of a rich and deep aftershave when applied however that smell does die down after a while and does leave the skin gently fragranced for hours and although it took me a bit of doing due to the initial smell I rather like it now!
It sweeps over the skin evenly and you really don't need very much of this at all. I direct the spray to where I want it and gently massage it into my skin before adding more. It absorbs well however with this being an oil it does need a couple of minutes to make sure that the oil is absorbed so that it doesn't leave residue on fabrics or anything like that.
Using this is really easy and effective if you don't go mad with it. It's absorbed easy enough and leaves the skin fresh and fragrant and for rather a long time. What is more it leaves skin feeling soft, supple and really does help give the skin a soft sheen and eradicates dry skin from the moment you use it. This is a nice quality body oil that men and women alike can use if desired! It's a pleasure to use on every level actually this one!
If you can find this in shops the retail price is about £6.00 (I have seen this in T.J Hughes) however I have seen this at as little as £2.49 a bottle online (CosmeticKingdom.com is one example).
