Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

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.

  • Moisturizes dry hair

  • Non greasy
  • Helps moisturize dry skin
  • Smells great


  • Too strong smelling ( a few users opinions)


Cold-Pressed Golden Jojoba and Essential Oils.

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.

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.

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.

To read more about BHT check out this site:

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.
