Review: The Body Shop Polynesia Monoi Miracle Oil

image

This fragrant oil is inspired by Polynesian spa rituals. It can be used as a body moisturiser, massage oil, bath oil or hair conditioner.

I brought this in my Body Shop Haul. After using MONU Spa Warming Ginger Massage & Body Oil I became rather obsessed with bath oils. The thing that I initially liked about this product is that you can use it as a hair conditioner too. Anything that conditions my hair and makes it smell good while making my skin feel and smell amazing is good in my books.

Application
For use as a moisturiser, massage into skin. For massage, pour into palms and apply in smooth, firm strokes. For bathing, pour into a bath and stir to disperse the oil. To condition hair, apply to the ends, leave for a few minutes or overnight, then wash with shampoo.

Review
First off, I love the smell of this. It absorbed well and doesn’t leave any residue. A little goes a long way. It comes in a sturdy plastic bottle and the texture of the oil is light with a floral jasmine scent. Since its getting a bit drier now I tend to get dry arms. This left my arms feeling nourished. It lasted a long time too. It’s a multi-functional oil, so the second time I used it i massaged some on to the ends of my hair and left it for a couple of hours before jumping in the bath. It left my hair feeling silky smooth.

Conclusion
Would I buy this again? Definitely. The multi functional aspect of this I love. I think it’s a reasonable price at £10 for 150ml bottle. But as I have said before you can always get this products in one of there many offers they have to get it a bit cheaper.

Have you tried this product? If you have what were your thoughts? Let me know!

So I received this is my May Birchbox and I was so excited to try it out after trying the MONU Spa Warming Ginger Massage & Body Oil I received in April’s Glossybox.. (I recently did a review on this here ) so I run myself a bath, with my tablet fully charged watching an episode of House (I love Hugh Laurie at the moment!) and dived in… Not literally..

Application
Add entire container to your bath or smooth it over your body before showering. Follow with appropriate body wash and moisturises if required.

Review
So the sample i received wasn’t that big compared to the MONU Spa one I received. So I thought to make a good judgement I had to use the same amount in this bath then I did the other… So I poured it all in…
The smell was nice. But it didn’t seem to last very long, where as the MONU Spa oil lasted for hours after my bath, In my bathroom and on me! That disappointed me a little because it did smell nice. Also it didn’t really leave my skin as soft as again the MONU Spa oil. It seems like all I’m doing is banging on about the other product but for the price tag on this one I expected alot more if I’m honest.

Conclusion
I’m sorry to say that I won’t be buying this product in the full size. Guess what I will be buying though? Yeah you already probably know… For £39 I think it’s over priced.

Have you tried this product? Did you enjoy it? Do you disagree with anything I have said? Let me know! X

So this was out last month’s Glossybox. (April 2014) If you’re a long time Glossybox subscriber like myself you will have seen MONU Spa pop up in your box more then once. So I had a hard day and I felt like I needed to relax. I saw this on my dressing table and though, why not try it now!

Application
Add a small amount to a warm bath to leave your skin beautifully nourished or warm a small amount between your hands and massage into the skin before washing in the bath or shower to leave your skin silky smooth.

Review
I can honestly say, I am very impressed with this product. I enjoy a soak in the bath. I usually take my tablet in there with me and watch a couple of episodes of something on Netflix. I used this product in a warm bath. I filled one cap full and poured it into my bath. I left the bathroom for 5 minutes to get ready and upon  returning, the smell was amazing. It hit me as soon as I stepped into my bathroom. It left my skin feeling luxurious and I could smell the Ginger on me for hours after, and in my bathroom!  One thing I was worried about was it making my hair greasy, because other oils I have used have made my hair go greasy after a day and i was pleased that it didn’t! What it did do is make my hair smell amazing! When this runs out, I will be hopping over to the MONU Spa website to buy a full size one!

Conclusion
If your into your bath bombs and funky soaps or just a good old fashioned bubble bath, this is the item for you. I’m thinking of mixing this oil in with a bubble bath.. That will be my next experiment.
100ml bottle of this is £25, but if it lasts as long as I think it’s going to from the little sample I got, I think that it’s worth it!

Did you receive this product in your last Glossybox? What were your opinions on it? Will you be buying the full size product? Or if your new to this product, are you thinking of trying it? Let me know your opinions and thanks for checking out my blog x
