Burt’s Bees Sweet Almond & Lemon Body & Bath Oil Review | Moisturizes Skin & Reduces Stretch Marks

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Burt's Bees Vitamin E Body & Bath OilBurt's Bees Sweet Almond Bath and Body Oil is made up of 98.50% natural ingredients that are devised to moisturize and nourish the skin.

The infusion of lemon and almond oil should make this bath oil a very sweet scent indeed. I also find it a big plus that Burt's don't test on animals.

Benefits Of Almond Oil

Almond oil is naturally rich in vitamin E and it is also very moisturizing, helps to relieve irritating skin and helps to improve the complexion leaving it with a natural glow.

Users Conclusions

I have summarized the lists below from the opinions of the people using the bath oil.


  • Moisturizes
  • Helps reduce pregnancy stretch marks
  • Lovely lemony scent
  • Light
  • Absorbs into the skin without an oily residue


  • A bit greasy for bath tub use
  • Smells a bit piney


Sweet Almond Oil, Lemon Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tocopherol (vitamin E), Rosemary Extract.


Apply oil directly to damp skin after shower or add 2 tablespoons to a warm bath.

To Sum Up

Most people using Burt's Bees almond oil found that it worked very well at moisturizing their skin, they also adored the lemony scent.

However, some people thought the smell was more piney/earthy and didn't favor the smell. A couple of users said it was a little too greasy for bath tub use.

There are quite a few ladies who commented on how the oil helped reduce their stretch marks.

If you like the sound of this bath oil and want to give it a try for yourself it retails for a reasonable $6.49.

Wen Bath, Body & Hair Fig Oil by Chaz Dean | Moisturizes, Adds Softness & Shine

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

WEN Bath, Body and Hair OilWen has devised this Fig oil to be used on hair, body and in the bath it should provide moisturize for the body and hair as well as adding softness and shine to help them look healthier for longer.

It is made up of essential oils that leave the body and hair with a delightful aroma, says Wen.

Also suggested by Wen is for you to add the oil to your body lotion or leave in conditioner for that extra bit of moisture.

The oil itself comes in a brown glass bottle with a rubber drop applicator lid, allowing for more exact oil usage. If you know much about aromatherapy, it's one of those bottles.

Users Conclusions

I have summarized the lists below from the reviews of the patrons:


  • Moisturizes dry hair
  • Lightweight
  • Non greasy
  • Helps moisturize dry skin
  • Smells great


  • Too strong smelling ( a few users opinions)


Cold-Pressed Golden Jojoba and Essential Oils.


Bath: Apply 2-4 full droppers into bath water. Body: Apply 1-2 full droppers to skin after showering, before drying off.

Hair: Apply 3-5 full droppers to dry hair before bed. Tilt head back and apply directly to scalp, massage vigorously, brush through, and leave-in overnight. Cleanse out with the Cleansing Conditioners the following morning. Recommended at least 2-3 times per week for scalp treatment.

To Sum Up

This body and hair oil by Wen has very good reviews from the users, who say it moisturizes dry hair, softens the skin and smells fabulous.

There are a couple of fans that think the fragrance is too strong but they say it doesn't last, so it's not unbearable.

One lady found it didn't work at all for her dry hair and said it is a waste of money.

At $20 for a 4oz bottle I think it is a average price considering it lasts a long time.

Skin So Soft by Avon Review | Moisturizing Bath Oil Repels Mosquito’s

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Avon Skin So Soft Bath OilSkin So Soft bath oil by Avon was created to be added to the tub to leave skin smooth, soft and lock in that much needed moisture.

Avon says the formula is unique with its all over moisturizing and the original woodland fragrance. It doesn't seem very unique to me as its main ingredients are mineral oil, carrot seed oil and BHT.

Controversial BHT

I just want to give you a little info into the background of BHT. It is a crystalline phenolic antioxidant used to preserve fats and oils, especially in foods.

BHT was banned by the FDA in use of baby foods and is also banned in all foods in the U.K. It is still widely used in other foods and cosmetics around the world.

Many scientists have tested BHT and say it's a carcinogen. This means they believe it causes cancer. Although there are others who believe it actually prevents cancer. Even then the results aren't that rosy, as in some instances they found it can still cause enlarged liver tumors.

These tests use a significant amount of BHT over a prolonged period, some scientific evidence shows that small amounts in cosmetics are safe to use.

Sorry if this scares you but I think you should know about the ingredients your using.

Users Conclusions

I have compiled the lists below from users opinions from Amazon:


  • Great for mosquito repellant
  • Softens skin
  • Helps cut through oil grease
  • Nice fragrance
  • Insect repellant-ants-ticks


  • Too greasy
  • Quite pricey
  • Makes the bath slippery



To Sum Up

It seems that Skin So Soft can be used for many tasks, according to a lot of patrons that say they use it for such tasks as an insect repellant, cut oil grease, moisturize skin etc.

However, some users think it is too greasy no matter how little you use. I would like to point out that as it it made from mineral oil and carrot seed oil that it will be greasy. It would be better for people with very dry skin as most of the oil should be absorbed into the skin.

A few Patrons think it is priced quite high at $16 for a 24fl.oz bottle. I think it's a reasonable price for a multi-use formula.

Just be aware that it does contain a small amount of cancer causing BHT.
