J.R. Watkins Body Oil

I’m not new to body oil, but it hasn’t always been my favourite product because some of the ones I’ve tried are so heavily fragranced. When I saw the J.R. Watkins Pure Lemon Body Oil I wasn’t exactly eager to try it.

But I read the ingredient list and noticed all the pure oils that made up this product and saw that it seemed to have a light consistency. I opened the bottle and took a sniff. Not too lemony – just slightly.

I’ve been using this product in place of my regular moisturizer and I have to say that I really like it! Now, it doesn’t absorb into the skin that quickly but the key to this is not to overapply so that you’re not too greasy. The oil is so light and the lemon scent fades quickly after you use the oil. The oil does moisturize very well for the summer, and I like not having to rub it in like a regular lotion.

You can purchase this product off the J.R. Watkins website but this product is also available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Zellers, and other drugstores, so it’s pretty easy to find. The body oil also comes in Lavender and Unfragranced versions.

Since trying this body oil, I’ve also had a chance to try out some other J.R. Watkins products and I also love their Shea Body Butter which is maybe the quickest absorbing lotion I’ve ever tried! The lemon cream scent is so soft and sweet while the mango scent is tangy just like a real mango! Check this line out when you get the chance – it seems that many of the products are really nice and you likely won’t be disappointed.

    I seriously found their body butter didn’t absorb AT ALL. I loved the smell and it was a good winter moisturizer but it really wasn’t one of the better absorbing ones. Mind you, I have skin like leather. Mor body butter in Gelato is very quick absorbing for a thick body butter, but I’m not really sure that what’s in it is as good.

    I find that body butters in general don’t really absorb well but they do leave your skin looking and feeling better.

    That IS true!

    Watkins body care products are wonderful and I think they smell great. Many of them now have the Natural Products Association certification seal which is great for people who are looking for natural, green or healthier options.
