I love an oul’ body oil. I have quite dry skin and love to get out of the shower and apply a body oil straight away allowing it to sink in. I’ve used loads of different types over the years and love The Body Shop body oil in particular but it’s a bit spendy. I was pottering around Penneys and spied this oil right next to the Bio Oil, wink wink If you’re familiar with Bio Oil this stuff looks the exact same colour but in a taller bottle.
This ingredients are below but this contains a mix of peach, sweet almond and evening primrose oil. It also contains vitamin E. This mix is quite different to Bio Oil which contains Calendula and Lavender Oil as well as Vitamins A and E. So despite appearances the ingredients are a little different.
I’ve been using this daily for a few weeks now and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. I’ve particularly noticed it at the tops of my thighs. I normally find skin there a bit bumpy and I’ve a few small stretch marks and my skin there is definitely looking a lot smoother. So as well as the moisturising effects this is definitely helping the texture of my skin.
This product doesn’t claim to do the same thing as Bio Oil but I’ve definitely seen a reduction in some small stretch marks and an overall improvement in my skins texture. I’ve never used Bio Oil myself so I can’t do a direct comparison but I’d say if you can’t afford to splash out and your skin needs a bit of TLC this is well worth trying out. It costs just €4.50 for 150ml so I don’t feel too bad using it as liberally as I do! This product just reminds me how Penneys have really upped their skincare and makeup game. Are there any Penneys beauty bargains you’d recommend?
