This past fall, Space NK sent me a lovely bundle of goodies and I was thrilled to see a product from African Botanics, a brand that I have seriously been loving. (See my previous posts on the brand here.)

From Space NK: Dry oil blend: fast absorbing, omega & nutrient rich formula, antioxidant defense, can be used pre- or - post sun exposure to prevent and reverse dehydration from UV exposure. This unique botanical body oil restores flacid, dry, photo-damaged and lackluster skin to youthful firmness, tone, elasticity and softness. Loaded with skin-saving essential fatty acids, rich in plant collagen, high in antioxidants & linoleic acid that are very beneficial for promoting healthy skin & cell membranes.
While I can't speak to the firming claims, I do think that this oil works brilliantly on my dry skin that is veering towards eczema in this winter weather. Slather some on, and my itchy skin is calmed! Seriously, that is such a miracle for me, as I am seriously just ITCHY right now. Plus, I love how this oil (and other items from the line!) have such a lovely, light fruity scent.
I haven't yet tested this on Mr. Bunny's eczema flare ups (yes, I'm hoarding this and keeping it to myself haha) but I imagine it would do well for eczema too. I didn't even realize that it is meant to help with UV exposure, so I can't wait to use this in the summertime too.
All in all, I am totally loving this for winter! African Botanics Firming Botanical Body Oil is available at Space NK, and they currently have this lovely set of products including this and my favorite Intensive Skin Repair Body Balm in the sale section for $37.50!
What do you think of African Botanics Marula Firming Botanical Body Oil? Is this something that you'd like to try? What body oils are you loving? I'd love to know!
