Garnier Ultimate Body Oil: light, non greasy and smells delish. Great for dandruff legs

This may sound well gross but I think many of you will know what I mean when I talk of Dandruff Legs.

At this point in the longest Winter ever our legs have been encased in tights and trousers for about 10 months. And if your legs are like mine then they're as dry as bejaysus, seriously neglected and a little bit... flaky.


Which can lead to um a suspiciously dandruffy appearance when the tights come off at the end of the day.  I always have great intentions to use body moisturiser but the never ending Winter is the biggest disincentive I know of.

However this stuff is great.  It's quicker than a body lotion because you don't have to wait for it to sink in and it doesn't feel greasy.  "Satin smooth skin" promises the bottle - and you know what?  It delivers.


Lighter than a body lotion - slightly heavier than a traditional dry oil like Nuxe; Garnier Ultimate Body Oil (€11.99) contains a blend of four different oils - Argan, Macadamia, Almond and Rose.  I've included a little snap of the ingredients (I'm obsessed with ingredients in products and the quantities they have - or don't have).   As you can see Rose and Almond Oil are present in tiny quanties - but Argan Oil is pretty far up the list and this is great news.

This formula promises to have five times the concentration of nutrients found in regular body lotion, so it should pack a powerful punch in terms of skin suppleness and firmness.

It smells lovely - but do you know I can't put my finger on what exactly this oil smells of.  Sweetly nutty if that makes sense?  My top tip: spray a little pool of it into your hand and apply that way instead of spraying your legs or arms directly because the spray will go all over the bathroom otherwise.

I really liked it - and so do my tights.  Go forth and moisturise.
