Bushra’s Body Oil Smells Like A Tropical Beach Holiday!
If you were to ask me where I would like to go on vacation, I would always choose the beach over the mountains. It’s not that I don’t like the mountains or anything. It’s just that I find them a little hostile and intimidating. I feel much more at home by the sea, probably because I’ve lived in Bombay all my life. I don’t mind the sand messing up my pedicured feet or my clothes; I love how delicious the breeze feels against my skin, and those glorious beachy waves that my hair gets are to die for!
Even though I love the beach, I’ve never really taken to having coconut as an ingredient in any of my skincare or haircare products. Until now. Lately, I’ve been digging the smell of coconut and I can’t have enough of it. So I’ve been on the lookout for a mild moisturiser for my body and chanced upon this coconut milk body oil from Victoria’s Secret. Although I’m not a fan of their nauseatingly sweet body mists, one can’t deny that Victoria’s Secret makes some killer products. I particularly like their Hello Bombshell Makeup Kit.
True to its name, the body oil is a lightweight oil that moisturises without making skin feel oily or greasy. Enriched with restorative argan, sunflower and grapeseed oils, the best part about this product is that it is paraben free. Moving over to my favourite part, this body oil has a pleasant (but not overpowering) warm aroma of coconuts. I’m looking forward to being transported to a tropical beach, and imagining myself sprawled on a hammock under the shade of palm trees swaying gently in the breeze, and the sound of waves in the background. My idea of heaven!
