Comments from users
“…not only does it smell great and make my skin so soft, but it also helps me sleep – I swear. When I have a lot of stress in my day, this oil just relaxes me and helps me calm down.”

“I thought this oil smelled really awful, and I was surprised that it cost more than many of the other oils I’ve tried.”
From a customer review on buzzillions.com
“This works so wonderfully when my skin is feeling dry or itchy. Use it right after you get out of the shower and massage it into your skin. It does not stay greasy like you might think a pure oil would. The rose scent is pure and amazing.”

“I absolutely love this body oil. I use it every day on my entire body and my dry, sensitive skin has never been better. The smell is lovely. It smells just like a REAL rose, not super sweet or fake like some may be expecting.”
Excerpt from a customer review on drugstore.com
We gathered mixed reviews on this one. The ability of this body oil in keeping the skin smooth is not in question since we didn’t find any review complaining about adverse effects of lack of effect. The complaints we’ve gathered are about the smell! A bit weird since most positive ratings have praised its effectiveness and its SMELL. Well, it seems like some would love its smell, while some would dislike it. It only goes to show that each individual has his or her own scent preference. Something to do with personality, perhaps?
We recommend it because it’s efficacy was never in question. However, the smell might work or might not work for you; so we recommend sniffing the contents first before purchasing it. If you fell in love with the scent, then by all means buy it. It does help dry skin from what we’ve gathered.
