Boots No7 silky Leg Oil
Advantages: Really does make a difference
I don't usually buy No7 products, to be honest. I pretty much stop at the highlighter. I think it is a little expensive for what they are and I also find the packaging quite dull so it never really stands out for me. However with the summer holidays coming up, I was browsing the Boots website and looking at the best products that customers had recommended and here I found the leg oil.
I have to say that an oil is not something I have really used before. Being pale, I fake tan so oils tend to remove it and I am usually better sticking with a shimmery cream. However I thought I would give this a go because it was so highly rated.
The packaging did now excite me one bit and in fact I had to really look for this product on the shelf as all the No7 packaging looks the same really. It was on my second trip back to the shelf, just to ensure I hadn't missed it that I found it. It comes in a peach plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. I have to say that I thought they could have made the bottle a bit bigger! I was looking for a more substantial bottle so I was quite surprised at how small it was.
I decided to try it out that night as I was going out. I went in the shower, shaved my legs and used a wash off fake tan. I let the tan soak in for about 15 minutes before applying the leg oil. When I pumped it into my hand it was literally like sparkly olive oil but with a lighter consistency! It was a lovely peach colour with tiny specks of golden shimmer in it. When I smoothed it on, it did take off a bit of my tan but I simply massaged it in with the oil so it was even again. You would think that it would make the legs look greasy but actually once it had sunk in my legs did resemble something from the red carpet with not a speck of unnatural glitter in sight. My legs looked leaner and longer (from the light reflective properties) and oh so silky smooth!
A small criticism would be that this didn't last all night and they did dull down but the next day my legs were increadibly soft and smooth. A little prduct did seem to go a long way but it was when I came to do my thighs that it seemed to require a substantial amount more product.
For smoothing benefits and appearance, this product is great. My criticisms are that it is really pricey for what it is. It isn't really what I would call a necessary product for my beauty regime but the effect is a little addictive and although I won't be using this all the time I think it may be a summer night treat for holidays. It really does make your legs look better and with those shorts and mini skirts coming back out I will take all the help I can get!
Summary: A great product that I would buy regularly if they lowered the price a bit
