I am a huge huge fan of body oils. In fact, I have a long list of body oils from many many amazing brands dominating my wishlist right now. I rarely use perfumes, so opting for scented body oils always leave a nice subtle lingering scent on the skin. The thing is, body oils can definitely get very pricy in comparison to body creams/lotions. So, I always reserve it for special occasions or whenever I'm feeling down. Funny enough, scented body oils never fail to boost up my energy and confidence when I know I smell really good all over my body!!

For example, The Good Stuff is a truly magnificent body oil by May Lindstrom Skin. If you think your normal body oil doesn't make you glow enough, this contains really small Mica particles to add a bit of shimmer. I have never previously used the famous Nuxe body oil or Nars body glow, but I find that the beautiful gold particles are very comparable to those in Vapour Instant Skin perfector. They are just enough to create a nice glow, but not too much that you will look like a walking disco ball.

The $110 price tag speaks for itself. This body oil creates such a precious feeling on the skin - literally like applying a liquid gold straight onto the skin, feeding it with luxurious beneficial nutrients from the nature. Similar to the Youth Dew (which I will be reviewing later on!), the texture is so very silky - actually the silkiest body oil I have ever tried! It leaves my skin deeply hydrated throughout the day, no need to layer it with body cream/lotion. Very nourishing on its own.
The scent? The scent is delicious and tempting - Cocoa, Rose, Lavender and Ylang Ylang sing such a perfect harmony. I would kill for any product that has a hint of chocolate in it actually. It is just not your average 100% natural/organic/wildcrafted/handmade product. You can feel that there is nothing plain about the making process of this. It is no wonder that her whole line is such a lovable treat for your skin, May Lindstrom is truly a skin chef (and a talented food chef by the look of it too!)

PS: Don't be too generous with this, 1 pump covers my one arm and 1 side of my shoulders. Also beneficial (if you have leftover) to soften your hair.
What do you think, will you give this product a splurge?
