NARLOA Jasmine & Neroli Body Oil Review


Recently I was given the opportunity to try the NARLOA Jasmine & Neroli Body Oil RRP £15* (see here). NARLOA is a recently started entrepreneur led brand, that provides vegan, cruelty-free, plant-powered skincare. So far, they have three products in the range: the body oil, an oil based cleanser and a facial oil.

I've actually never tried a body oil before (although I do have the Nuxe one somewhere unopened), so I was super excited to give this a go! Also, I quite liked the idea of trying a natural brand. NARLOA infact make their products in small batches to ensure freshness, and their products are free from preservatives, parabens and alcohol.

Due to having never tried a body oil before, I was slightly worried that it might be a bit greasy or it might look too shimmery on the skin (which is fine if you're on holiday, but obviously if you're heading off to work you don't want your clothes to have a greasy residue).

However, I needn't have worried, as this isn't greasy in the slightest. The formula is very light, and slightly runny, meaning that it is absorbed instantly. To be honest, I did think that due to it being an oil, it would be more richer. The only way I can describe this is that it's like a serum. So you know how a serum works in dehydrated skin to replenish and hydrate the skin, but you would generally still go over with a moisturiser for dry skin. Well, the NARLOA Body Oil* is similar, I find that it does a good job at re hydrating my skin, but it's not overly thick like a body butter. So people with dry skin might want to use this say out of the bath, and then go in with a body moisturiser to finish off. Or you could just apply a few more layers where your skin is dryer, so I apply a bit more on my elbows, knees etc (and don't worry because it still doesn't look greasy).

I quite like the end result on the skin too, again it's not the oiled look I was imaging! It's very subtle, just a well hydrated look and a subtle glow when first applied.

The cons of the products, however, are that because it's so light you will end up using quite a bit, especially if you use it regularly all over your body. So the 125ml of product might not last you very long. This might work out a bit pricey as the body oil costs £15. In my opinion, I would say this is more of a premium product, since the brand is focused on organic skincare.

Due to it's main ingredients being Jasmine and Neroli oil, the body oil definitely does have a Jasmine scent. It's hard to describe an oil, but I sometimes use the Jasmine oil you can buy off the supermarket shelf to do a hair massage, and it's definitely not as strong as those ones, but it does come across when you first apply it. However, once it's absorbed in, you can't really smell it unless you give it a good sniff haha!

The packaging is very basic so far, a clear plastic bottle with a white label glued on. However, again I was surprised by how good it looks in reality, and the minimalist theme goes well with the brand. It also features a push top with dispenser that makes it easy to get just the right amount out.

Overall, I enjoyed using the NARLOA body oil*, a lot more than I was expecting to infact. It's light and hydrating, and really easy to massage in and go, especially for the Summer. In Winter, with my dry skin I might need to pair this with a moisturiser, but I quite liked the edition of an oil in my routine.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
Have you every tried a body oil, and how did you find it?

  5. I love using body oil, it was part of my routine since childhood and back then I used Johnson & Johnson. I have used a good range of body oils now and this one you showed looks really good.

  8. I've actually never tried a body oil before, I always think that I'm going to look like an oily mess after so I never look into them. Neroli is a lovely scent. This seems like an ok product but I just don't think I've ever go to use it

  17. I am really glad you included a photo of your skin with it on.
    As soon as I see oil I run an mile because to me it just seems greasy.
    The label design is really lovely.
    Is the Jasmine very overpowering? I am not really a HIGH smell sort of person.

    1. You can smell it when you first apply it, but as soon as it sinks in the scent sort of disappears, I didn't find it to be an issue after that :)

  39. I love body oils especially if they absorb fast! My go to is the Sabon vanilla body oil and I love some aftersun oils by Vichy and La Roche Posay. Golden Goddess by Estée Lauder is a favourite one - with glitter.

  40. I've only used a body oil once that was from The Body Shop and I believe it was a great consistency especially in the winter when we're all dried up and need the extra moisture. I like the idea of this oil being light, but you're right about probably having to use up even more product.
