Scentsational Soaps Dry Oil Spray review



In review of Scentsational Soaps Dry Oil Spray. 
Recently I received a call from a @ScensationalSoaps Instagram follower, and friend. She's been wanting to try Scentsational Soaps products after seeing and hearing about their skin beautifying results. She wanted to start with one purchase, and wanted it to be an overall body care moisturizer. She had her eye on New Florida scents Dry oil spray, and was ready to click buy. Just wanted a little support on choosing that one, so gave us a call.
She has dry skin, and wanted added moisture to protect her skin with upcoming winter months.  So asked is this good for body and especially face. In my opinion when someone asks you is this good for...?, they are asking, have you tried this, with what results? To truly answer how one certain product works, as she was planning on using it as her single product, at least that's how I understood, then I too needed to use it alone on my face. I hadn't done that yet, since I had been using HoneyBee Naturals The Ultimate Serum under my moisturizer, which most recent has been HoneyBee Naturals Propolis Body Butter. So my initial response "yes you can use it on your face as well, instead of spraying though, to avoid eyes, open and drop up to a few drops on to your hands and apply to face that way." While Scentsational Soaps Dry Oil spray is for all skin types, it is especially beneficially for dry skin. I then also promised, "that I will experience our dry oil spray as my facial moisturizer, and let you know results."  She went ahead and purchased the dry oil spray, and will let us know her results as well. *(see her review at end of this blogpost) She asked what scent I recommend, I have been wearing the New Florida scent Coconut Honey Body Butter on my legs and arms and receive compliments every time. The New Florida scent Dry oil spray is thus the perfect choice as your moisturizer and perfume. Win win!!
I thus set out to review Scentsational Soaps Coconut Honey Dry Oil Spray. The next day I cleansed my face with HoneyBee Naturals Facial Cleanser and only applied,on my cleansed face, the Scentsational Soaps Coconut Honey Dry Oil Spray , morning and night, for two weeks. I sprayed it on my body as well after showering, recommended to retain the added amounts of moisture.  Side note: I thought I'd apply it just on my legs right before showering as a shaving lotion alternative in the shower, and it was a smooth shave, worked wonderfully! See that's an added tip from actual experience ;) 
Day one pictures.
Allow me to explain, I am not claiming professional pictures here with special lighting. These were with my cell phone, in my bathroom, and not in the exact same spots, but these were same day and my face. 
Left side nothing but cleansed skin, Right side after one application of Scentsational Soaps Coconut Honey Dry Oil. Again, drops onto my hand and applied to face.
Dry oil is not drying! It is named dry due to its lighter finish and fast absorption, not at all slick n greasy, as some may assume when they hear 'oil'. 
How does it feel? My skin is so soft, like velvet! I keep touching it! And looking at it, I'm not shiny, rather my skin has a soft healthy natural glow! Scentsational Soaps Coconut Honey Dry Oil hydrates my skin and gives it that necessary antioxidant boost. It has and continues to soften my fine lines. The last set of pictures is my skin at two weeks. I have combination dry to sensitive skin. This was non irritating, and lightweight. I have to say I will be continuing to use this, while adding the serum back into my regiment. My review conclusion is : I can truly recommend as a facial moisturizer.

  • Use as your body moisturizer: apply as a spray
  • Use as your perfume: choose your favorite New Florida scent
  • Use as your facial moisturizer: open and drop oil into your hands and apply onto your face so as to avoid getting into your eyes
  • Hydrates and Nourishes with a light velvety finish 
  • Natural Healthy Glow, non-greasy
  • Help your foundation last longer: apply make up after the fast absorption of dry oil
  • Improve skin elasticity



The review is in ! I received my Dry Oil Spray in coconut honey last week , and I love it ! I wanted it to try on my face since I tend to do better with an oil than a lotion . It soaks in beautifully and moisturizes so well without feeling greasy or causing breakouts. My makeup glides on like butter ( I mean buttah
😁) . I have used it on my body as well which also leaves my skin soft and I think will be amazing once cold weather gets here and dry itchy skin needs to be warded off . I also really appreciate the wonderful samples you sent with the order. I did try the body butter on my face as well as hands and arms, love it. Sugar scrub, again , for me a 10! Thanks so much , I've already been advertising a bit here in Georgia! Looking forward to trying some other products soon . Thanks to you and your baby boy !

The Eyes Have It









Where do you look when someone is speaking to you? 
Make eye contact. The eyes have it. 
What do your eyes say : Kind Eyes, Honest Eyes, Evil Eye, Sad Eyes, Smiling Eyes, Dreamy Eyes. So many expressions about our eyes, our eyes give so much of our expression. 

Its no wonder that the first signs of aging we notice personally, man and woman, is around our eyes. The search begins for the best eye care product. The skin around our 'telling' eyes is delicate, so as important as the right ingredients is our application of product. Your kind eyes need a gentle touch. Use your ring fingers to ensure a lighter application, absolutely no rubbing. (scared eyes emoticon)
If you rub eye care on, well for one you are waisting product because you are basically wiping it off, you are essentially tugging on thin vulnerable skin. This will only irritate and add to existing dark circles and lines. A light dabbing, tapping motion as you smooth on the eye serum around the contour of your eyes. For the added cooling benefit for puffy tired eyes, store the eye gel in the fridge.
Now about those key ingredients, well we've got them in our HoneyBee Naturals Ultimate Eye & Face Serum, Royal Jelly & Vitamin C. There is abundance of natural powerful ingredients within this ultimate eye skin care serum. Cucumber fruit extract to revive, Royal Jelly and Honey to smooth, the healing and tightening benefits of Aloe leaf gel, antioxidant Grape fruit extracts, the essence of Florida Neroli essential oil. 
If you are beginning to notice fine lines, or you've been eyeing them for awhile now, and/or looking for entire face care gel try Scentsational Soaps HoneyBee Naturals The Ultimate Eye & Face Serum today. It is sure to make your favorite things list! Trust me I have an eye for this :)

Change of Season Means Changes in Skin Care

Do you feel the summer coming to an end where you live? Here in Florida it's not by the temperature changing, well maybe 99 to 89 :), but it's our kids starting their school year. Summer vacation is over. Hope you remembered to apply sunscreen daily, especially those beach and pool days. Now is when the tan fades and you notice just what summer has done to your skin, weather it's over exposure to sun, and/or the pool chlorine. 
It's time to reevaluate your skin care. Change of season means change for your skin as well. We look to correct and care. So here are our tips:


Exfoliate: Using a gentle sugar scrub is key for correction and care. You are exfoliating dead dry skin, rejuvenating the skin, bringing your beautiful glowing skin back.


Eye care: Maybe we didn't get enough sleep on vacation, squinting while playing in the beach, needed to hydrate more than we did. Correct and care with eye serum that allows for cellular repair and hydration.


Hydrate: Correct the summer dry skin, and continue to care by smoothing on ultra hydration for the cooler months ahead. I would recommend a body butter, and the best time to apply is right after showering.

Have you tried Scentsational Soaps new facial skin care line? The benefits of the key ingredient Neroli Essential Oil are amazing, and the scent will make you feel like you're still on summer vacation.
Benefits: increases circulation and stimulates new cell growth. Any type of skin can benefit from this oil, although it is particularly good for dry, sensitive, or irritated skin. It regulates oiliness and minimizes enlarged pores.

 
Don't 'fall' into bad habits, start the season off right, correct and care for your skin.
