Olverum – The Dry Body Oil Review

OLVERUM has been a long standing staple in my bathroom ever since I discovered their bath oil. I kid you not, the bath oil is like magic, particularly when you are feeling under the weather or need a good nights sleep. It is my absolute go to for relaxing baths, clearing of colds and sleeping soundly when feeling poorly. I hear the royals quite like it too. And you know what they say, if it’s fit for the Queen….

When the new OLVERUM Dry Oil Spray landed on my desk at LLHQ I was not quite sure what to make of it. Purely because anyone who has tried the OLVERUM Bath Oil will know, it is quite the pungent smell bursting at the seams with essential oils, it’s a potent bottle of amazing-ness, that’s for sure. So initially I thought, this might be just a bit too much for a dry oil … but oh how wrong I was.

I can confirm, the formula is so much more subtle than that of the OLVERUM Bath Oil, and yet, does not lack in its abundance of essential oils. While it doesn’t have the same blow the cobwebs effect as the bath oil; I see that as a good thing – I don’t want to walk around smelling like I’ve just been dipped in a multitude of pungent essential oils, I’ll save that, thank you very much, for when I’m returning from the spa or a luxurious aromatherapy massage.

It is, however, a bit of a luxurious treat post bathing or showering. Or even just because. The oil is silky, I mean, really really silky. And the spray is not too ferocious, it ejects the right amount of product for two to three sprays per body part, depending on how you like to slather your oil.

I apply it straight from the shower or bath, I’ve always applied oils this way, soaking more moisture into the skin and sliding into bed feeling glowing and moisturised. The OLVERUM Dry Oil seeps into the skins layers effortlessly, and leaves little to no residue once absorbed. A dry oil it truly is.

Now onto the scent, as I said, regular users of the bath oil should fear not, this is not going to be an overpowering scent, it is however rather uplifting and awakens the senses, all whilst leaving your skin silky soft. The OLVERUM Dry Oil combines over 30 different essential and cold pressed botanical oils that leave your skin feeling really moisturised and smooth. It contains raspberry seed oil which is rich in antioxidants as well as Alaria esculenta extract which is known to boost the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid which is great for preserving skins firmness and elasticity.

What’s more, OLVERUM The Body Oil is Vegan and cruelty-free, free from artificial preservatives, fragrance and colourants, Silicone, Mineral oils, Petrolatum, Sulphates, Pthalates, Parabens, Triclosan and animal derived ingredients.

A great one for Christmas gifts for mum, or yourself if you fancy an indulgent treat.
