The Body Shop recently launched their new Spa of the World Collection and I was really interested in it! I have a very hectic schedule most of the time and I hardly get time to really relax and if anything that can make me feel relaxed and pampered, then I am all about it!! Spa word is quite magnetic to me these days 😉 😀 So, today I am going to review The Body Shop Spa of the World Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil!
About The Looks!
The oil comes in a plastic pot like bottle with a black cap and a white cork like fitting on the mouth of the bottle, sorry I don’t know what that’s called, do refer to the picture below and if anyone of you know what is it, do leave a comment and let me know! This thing helps the oil comes in a controlled quantity and is a huge help, because sometimes when I try to pour some oil in my palm, suddenly a lot of if comes out and leads to product wastage as well. The color of the bottle reminds me of the traditional earthy feeling of a spa in Kerela though the product has no relation to that! 😀 The bottle has the name of the brand and product and other details printed on a gold sticker, which goes really well along with the color of the bottle. I would say I really love this packaging, it makes you feel luxorious! 😀

My experience and views about the Polynesian Monoi Radiance Oil!
This is by far the best body oil I have ever used!! Oh My God!! I am in love with this!! So much that I use it everyday!! Yes, you call me crazy and I am happy to be, because its amazing!!
The first thing you notice is its scent! Its an amazing one!! A blissful experience with a lovely floral scent, that I can’t stop myself from sniffing time to time!! Yes, the scent lasts that long! I have noticed the scent on my skin for about 4 hours! That is incredible! The description says that the Monoi is a blend of coconut oil and tiare flowers, well, I got to find these flowers now!! They will be my favorite scent ! This product gives such a luxurious aromatic experience that you feel you’re in spa, but at home!
The oil is almost transparent with a little hint of yellowness of the oil to it. The consistency is neither runny nor very thick, its somewhere in between. It is ideal in massage as it helps the fingers and hands glide on the skin smoothly without any hiccups. When it is applied on the body, it instantly heats up the body and you feel the massage working even more! This oil has heating properties which is ideal for spa, because the heat increases the blood circulation which eventually leads to relaxed muscles. Now the amazing ingredients also come into play and keeps my skin very well hydrated all day long! No Kidding! My body skin is super dry and due to the constant weather changes it goes crazy, but this oil has not only helped me keep it moisturized but also given me glowing body skin!
There is one thing though, if you have super dry body skin, then you would need more oil than a person with normal skin does, so the amount you need for the whole body will vary.
I did apply this oil to my hair, only to the ends. It was thick enough to coat them and make it shiny, but did not super grease them. I did not take a lot of oil either, just took a few drops, rubbed it between my palms and brushed through the ends of my hair! It did add a slight shine in my hair after the wash and they were not too dry or frizzy. Can’t say much about the effect on damaged or brittle hair, as I don’t have much of that, also I think I need more time to see those results, if any.
This oil is worth spending the money if you want to pamper yourself at home with a spa like experience! The scent is mind blowing and instantly takes you someplace else. The heating properties of the oil is so good that it increases the blood circulation and the consistency is perfect to help get a good massage! The bonus is the glow and hydration you get!! In simple words, it is an amazing luxurious product that I am in love with and highly recommend it to everyone!!
