Skincare Sunday: Dove Pistachio & Magnolia Nourishing Body Oil

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you've all had a lovely week. I'm actually spending today partly at work and partly being fed by the in-laws while my other half indulges in some football - wild, I know. There's just something about a home cooked meal by a mother that rounds off a weekend perfectly, don't you think? Anyway, onto today's post.

I have to admit, I'm not normally one for body oils. I slather them on because I know they do my skin good but I'm always left feeling sticky and uncomfortable and unable to dress for a good 10 minutes or so. Ain't nobody got time for that! However, a new launch from Dove has changed all that.

Dove Purely Pampering Pistachio & Magnolia Nourishing Body Oil may be a bit of a mouthful but, believe me, taking those extra few moments to ask a Boots sales assistant to direct you in its direction will be well worth it. It's quite a slim bottle with a screw top lid - not the greatest design to make getting the oil out easy but it works perfectly fine, I think I prefer a spray for things like oils. the oil itself is beautiful - silky soft and the best part? It doesn't leave that horrid tacky feeling I hate! The Dove Pistachio & Magnolia Nourishing Body Oil dries almost instantly leaving my skin soft straight away and means I can get dressed right after - no waiting around. This'll be perfect for winter - one of the reasons I neglect my skin during the colder months is because I just can't deal with standing around in the cold in my pants waiting for moisturisers to sink in - this takes away all that bother.

The scent I chose, Pistachio and Magnolia, is beautiful. It's sweet but the pistachio gives a nutty undertone to ease the sweetness - I'm not a fan of sweet scented body things but adore the Dove Pistachio & Magnolia Nourishing Body Oil. It's very subtle but leaves behind a gentle aroma that I leave by itself, no perfume.

I really do rate this product, especially if you're someone who normally avoids oils because of their tackiness/long drying times. Dove are really bringing it with their releases recently - I can't wait to see what's next!

Will you be trying this Dove Nourishing Body Oil?



  1. I really like using oils in the winter! I have used the 2 day moisture shower oil from Sanctuary which is nice as well as you can use it in the shower. I will have to give this one a try next! x

  2. Really wished we had this here in Germany. I don't think we do.
    But I might give some other dove oil a try if I find one :)
