Summer in a bottle...Freshly Cosmetics Golden Radiance Body Oil*

In celebration of this gorgeous body oil turning 1, I thought I’d give you the low down and why you need it on your shelves this summer!

What is it?

A deeply golden (as the name would suggest!) body oil which if you fancy it can also be used on the face. Created to nourish and hydrate your skin whilst helping reduce the signs of aging, cellulite, scars and stretch marks. Perfect for pregnant women (I can vouch for that) and any person with skin to be honest! 

What is in it?

A blend of 100% natural ingredients, 12 plant-derived oils and natural technologies deliver a sophisticated effective formula. This has so many fantastic ingredients packed inside it. Virgin marula, rosehip, virgin chia, macadamia, organic jojoba, babassu and organic hazelnut all form the base of the oil. Two Microalgae technologies have powerful antioxidant properties which help to fight dreaded cellulite and help protect the skin from damage by UV rays. The natural fragrance comes from a blend of 10 fruits and flowers including grapefruit, bergamot, orange, mandarin, pineapple, apple, pomegranate, cardamom and sandalwood.
So much goodness in a bottle!

My thoughts...

Everybody needs this beautiful nectar! The scent is gorgeous. Think peach musk (not overpowering). If I close my eyes I am transported to summer nights before the sun goes down. Know what I mean? Pure relaxation ...

It is rich yet non-greasy, a dry oil type texture that is easily absorbed into the skin. There is no residue left behind which I love, and you don’t need to wait long before getting dressed which is a must for me. 

It feels super nourishing and leaves skin with a beautiful radiant finish. It looks like glowing satin! I’ve found the oil to be excellent particularly on the arms and legs. I feel like I need to use quite a lot if I use it on my ‘wobbly’ areas so tend not to use it for that. Although I may put it to the test because oh boy do I have wobbly bits which could do with a bit of help. Not to mention the scars that have accumulated over the past year! 
Hormones have left me with unattractive reptile skin on my legs and this along with body brushing has transformed my skin over the past couple of weeks. No more dryness in sight!

In regards to the pump packaging, it is excellent and works very well without any leakage. This is usually the issue I have with other oils and it really annoys me (probably more than it should)! I hate product seeping out everywhere. Can’t be dealing with that. Might seem silly but it can make or break whether I’ll repurchase. The glass bottle gives it a sturdy luxurious feel and the results in whole are that of a more expensive oil. I am so glad I have a back up as I don’t want to be without this! 
You can find the Golden Radiance Oil here from Freshly for £23. 

At the moment Freshly are doing an offer where if you buy any of their new sunscreens it will take 20% off your whole order!
