Satsuma Beautifying Oil
Layering is key!!
While in my local mall on Tuesday I picked up on a most AMAZING smell. It caused me to literally follow my nose till I figured out where it was coming from. It led me in to the body shop store for the first time,where I discovered it was the satsuma home fragrance oil being burned in a burner. I decided to buy the satsuma body mist to try it out. I love this scent so much I wound up going back 2 days later to purchase the home oil,toilette, body butter,lotion, shower gel and body oil in this scent. I grabbed some balancing shampoo too but I'll review that later. I was very hesitant about putting anything with the word oil in its description on my body BECAUSE I have a condition called keratosis pilaris (or KP). It's when your body produces too much keratin which clogs the pores causing them to become red and enflamed, (its mostly on my arms shoulders and sometimes upper back) so I'm always nervous about what I should use on my skin and hair (I'm a naturally oily person all the way around) but I love this scent so much I was totally wiling to take the leap, and hey, you can return any of it if you have to. Well I'm returning none of it! I used the gel then put some lotion in my hand and added just a few drops of oil to that, mixed in my palms and applied to my whole body. AMAZING! The tiny bit of oil just turned that lovely (but standard)lotion into something phenomenal! I then followed with a few spritzes of body mist dressed and finished it of w a spritz of toilette spray. Completely layered looking, feeling and smelling AMAZING ready for my day! I plan to do the same with a little oil and the butter for the days when I decide to use that. A little bit of any of these products will get you far and layering is key. So pick your favorite scent and get started. ENJOY!

Great for pregnant skin!
I love to combine 3-4 drops of this daily with either/all my body butters, hair serums & even Bio Oil to rub all over! It makes me feel like a queen! I even used it to massage my husbands back & shoulders...he loves it too! You don't feel sticky afterward but the product DOES linger throughout the day.

Great for dry hair
I have been using this on my very dry, very curly hair and I LOVE how it makes my hair feel. It is a little difficult to apply but it feels great.

I love this oil. I was really heartbroken when the Satsuma perfume oil was discontinued but this makes me feel a lot better. The bottle seems small, but a little bit of this goes a long way. It absorbs quickly and smells amazing. The only thing I'd warn against is using it in your hair - especially if you have fine blond hair like I do. I tried a tiny bit and it just made my hair look oily. Otherwise, it's a great product - I ordered 2 more bottles!
