Alverde Wild Rose Body Oil

This body oil came with high recommendations to me as one that smells heavenly and works like a charm.

The oil is really rehydrating but this comes with the downside that it penetrates the skin really slow, and you have to wait for half an hour to an hour until you can put your clothes on, because it does stain them. This process (penetrating the skin, not the staining 😛  ) is a bit faster if you apply the oil on a wet skin, but it doesn’t go much faster either. It really helps dry skin if you apply it every two days let’s say, and the hydration stays there.

The version that I have at home has a dripping tap that causes the product to leak on the bottle and on the floor. On the other hand I noticed that for the new batches of oils they use a pump, which makes the application much cleaner and hygienic.

One thing I do not like about the product is the smell.  It does smell of wild rose, it is very intense and it remains for hours. I find it too herby for my taste, but other tenths users have loved it so this aspect is really subjective and a matter of tastes.

The Alverde Wild Rose Body Oil costs around 3,7 euros and you can find it in every DM store.

Let me know what you think!
