      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Superb dry body oil

      I am a big fan of This Works products whose selling point is that they only make products that deliver and truly deserve the name This Works.
      Founded in 2003 and based in the UK the company work with British farmers and use organically grown products where possible.

      My first purchase of this product came in a kit with two other products in travel sizes. It was a great purchase as it allowed me to try out 3 products for less than £20. Sadly they don't appear to be making the kit any more so full size is 120ml and comes in quite expensive at £39.50.

      The Product
      Comes in a plastic pump action container, which makes it easy to dispense , but not so easy to transport as it doesn't have a lid and you are supposed to insert a small piece of plastic that fits in the pump. My problem is I didn't realize that and discarded it by mistake.
      It is really easy to dispense and the product is a clear dry oil.

      Application
      Simply smooth over your legs and body.

      Ingredients
      This is an award winning product and contains a blend of 9 exotic and 7 cold pressed plant oils which include rose, sandllewood, evening primrose, peach sweet orange, chamomile, cedarwood , ylang ylang and bergamot.

      The Results
      This is a wonderful product which smells amazing . I have a couple of other products from the Skin Deep range and it is a real pleasure to use them, as the scent is quite intoxicating and I find it very relaxing.
      It is a very nice cocktail of fruity and plant fragrances which combined smell vey natural .

      Although this is described as a leg oil, I use this on other parts of my body as it is perfect for really dry, rough or dull skin. It is quite rich, but being a dry leg oil it isn't greasy and it works like magic, transforming dull looking skin and leaving it with a nice healthy sheen.
      It is really easy to apply and being a dry oil it does not leave any greasy residue that could transfer onto clothing. I simply pump some into my palm and then smooth over my legs and arms. It takes no effort and you can really see the difference between where you have applied and where you haven't.

      I use this primarily on my arms and legs which are very dry and flaky and it really softens and hydrates the skin and makes it look so much better.
      I don't really like showing the skin on my arms and legs as I have psoriasis there , but I used this before and while I was on holiday and my skin looked and felt so much better . It leaves a nice healthy glow so even though I still had psoriasis patches , I felt confident enough to show bare arms and legs.
      I applied this over another This Works product - Perfect Legs which is a leg serum that has a temporary colour but I think you could use this without moisturiser and get the same effect as it is very hydrating.

      I don't tan but I would imagine this looks great on tanned skin as it leaves a gorgeous sheen , which makes any skin look better.

      Would I Recommend
      This is not the cheapest dry leg oil I have tried, but it is by far the best I have ever used and not only does it make skin look fabulous , it also works on the condition and really improves dry and flaky patches. I use this mainly in the summer, but just recently I noticed the skin on my feet and legs was really flaky - really tiny flakes that were showing on my black tights, so I applied some of this and problem solved. I am a bit lazy in Winter and tend to focus on applying creams on the skin affected by psoriasis, so I recommend using this if you need a quick fix as it really does the job.
      I hate my legs and tend to keep them covered , so anything that improves the look is a bonus for me.
      It is also perfect if you want to look best and I apply to my décolletage as it leaves a really nice sheen , hydrates my skin and improves the texture.
      I just wish it was cheaper!

      Shop around if you want to try this as Feel Unique have 15% off at the moment, but look out for the kits and gift sets as price per ml is significantly less and based on my experience every product I have tried is a winner.
