When it’s humid out I prefer to moisturize with light creams and non-greasy oils whereas in fall and winter when things cool down considerably I reach for thick butters and rich creams. The new body oils from Mark are available in 4 delectable scents that are light enough for summer and make skin feel smooth and silky!
When I first felt this formula I expected it to apply slick and greasy but it actually absorbs quickly much like dry oil with no residue. The moisture they provide is subtle but just enough to abolish dryness and applying the oil a bit heavier eradicates flaky patches. It also works well on dry feet without staining your sheets at night and you can use it to treat rough cuticles and damaged nails.
I would have liked to see more variety of natural oils in the ingredient list as the main moisturizer in all the formulas is olive oil. The scents are sweet and delicious with the infusion of fragrance so you can skip the perfume for a lighter summer-fresh aroma. Passionate for Plumberry has a fruity scent which is great for the season, Crushing on Coconut smells warm and inviting and Lemon Sugar and Dreaming of Jasmine are alluring with sparkling citrus, vanilla, and floral notes. If you take a whiff directly from the bottle you may get a faint hint of the alcohol but when massaged into the skin the oils all smell very nice.
You can use these oils in a variety of ways including:
*Massage directly on dry skin
*Pour under running water into a warm, relaxing bath
*Apply all over the body while in the shower and then lightly rinse off
*Apply to damp skin after a shower or bath and towel or air dry
The oils definitely make bath time more nourishing, and fun! They retail for $14.00 each and you can pick them up online HERE or through independent Avon consultants.
