♥ Chocomania Beautifying Oil

Chocomania Beautifying  Dry Oil Review

Use this for your hair, face or body! (Click on picture below for link to Bodyshop)

Seven first ingredient, full ingredient list here Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Emollient), Dicaprylyl Carbonate (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil/Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter/Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter (Emollient)

Described on the website as "Beautifying Oil is pure beauty in a bottle. Made with a lightweight blend of nut oils including Community Fair Trade marula oil, it gives instant hydration and a shimmering finish. This one has a deliciously chocolatey scent"

What is a dry oil?
From what I've understood it's a more lightweight oil, usually mixed with other emollients too. When I apply this on my body there is a noticeable difference to normal oils, there is no grease. Think a super light oil, but just as moisturising.

This really is amazing! You guys already know I love the Chocomania range, I bought it last winter I think and loved it (see here). One thing I love is the bottle, it really squirts the oil out making it easy to apply.

For hair: I used this when I straightened my hair for the first time in 7 months plus (see pics here). I found that it made it super soft. Not sure if products not containing water can moisturise but I felt like it moisturised my hair too.

For body: Amazing to use as an in shower/bath oil or just to use on skin after showering. Big plus for smelling amazing. My skin has not been dry since using this. I shower every day which means it keeps your skin non dry for at least 24 hours.

For face: Although I tried it, I haven't used it a lot on my face, only because I have another facial oil I use (see DIY here)

  1. I love using oils to moisturise and a non-greasy oil is definitely the best sort of oil :) I don't know if I'd love the Chocomania scent but I know they do others x
