It’s day 3 of my Joik advent calendar 2017* and today I got Joik Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil in Raspberry Bon Bon (50ml).
This smells amazing! I’m a huge fan of sweet, fruity scents and this definitely ticks that box. I was intrigued by the concept of a shower oil as it’s not something I’ve used before. The idea with this is you use it in place of shower gel but because it’s an oil it should leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised. The directions say to apply to wet skin, lather, and rinse. I used this in the shower and I struggled with it. Firstly it is very runny and I somehow managed to splash some in my eye! Aside from my clumsiness, I just couldn’t seem to get this to lather. I imagined it might turn to a milky lightly foamed consistency but it didn’t seem to do anything other than act as an oil. It felt nice and my skin felt soft and moisturised afterwards so it’s perfect if you’re someone (like me) with dry skin but who rarely moisturises their body. It did smell great but this didn’t seem to stay on the skin unfortunately. I’m feeling mixed about this. I love the idea, I like how it made my skin feel, but it didn’t seem to lather and the smell didn’t translate into my skin which is a shame. I might try using more next time in case I didn’t use enough of the product. Would love to hear from you if you’ve used shower oils!
