I adore dry oils for the face and body, so imagine my delight when MOROCCANOIL Body sent me their Dry Body Oil ($48) to try. It was nestled in a box with other wonderful products, but my eyes went straight to the Body Oil. Like all MOROCCCANOIL Body products, it comes in a beautiful turquoise box. The oil comes with a regular white screw-on cap, and the sprayer to replace it is nestled in an insert next to the bottle. It's as classy as it gets.

Described as instant moisture that achieves soft, silky results, MOROCCANOIL Body Dry Body Oil Fragrance Originale infuses skin with the antioxidant-rich, nourishing properties of argan oil rich in essential fatty acids, as well as olive and avocado oils. The weightless formula absorbs very quickly to lock in moisture, while soothing dry areas and improving overall skin texture and tone. It is delicately fragranced with the signature MOROCCANOIL scent called Fragrance Originale that evokes to me a beach in paradise. It doesn't smell like suntan lotion or coconut, but it reminds me of sun, sand, and waves. Perhaps I have an active imagination.

If I'm really dry, I will apply the oil extravagantly, pouring a bit into my palm and applying it after a shower. Under normal circumstances (when I'm dry, but not parched), I use the sprayer and apply a light film that I massage into my skin - often right before bed).

I know that you were first aware of MOROCCANOIL as an excellent hair product. There is a really fun YouTube video on the company's site featuring Rosie Huntington-Whitley and her tousled, glamorous hair.

Back to the body products, there are many different types. MOROCCANOIL takes care of all skin types in various delectable scents. Fleur d'Oranger is one of my favorites. You can check them out at the company's Web site or Nordstrom. I think Barneys New York may carry it too. I have other treasures to show you, so I'll be featuring them often.

MOROCCANOIL Body's products are paraben-free. The Dry Body Oil is made in Canada. Shipping is free, and with orders of $55 or more, you will receive a complimentary (and wonderful) hand cream sample. Give them a try!

This sounds intriguing. I wasn't too impressed with their original hair oil but perhaps I didn't use it right.
Thanks, Tanja

My dry skin cries out for moisture, and it never hurts if using a product is an aesthetic experience as well. It ensures that I'll actuall use it on a regular basis. Does it spray sufficiently enough to get a fair amount of product on one's body without getting it on the floor? That is my one issue with sprays. The scent sounds lovely.
