Review: Linden Leaves Body Oil: Absolute Dreams

Hey ladies, the weather has been a little erratic lately, with heavy rains one time, and bright shining sun the next. Please remain hydrated with lots of water, and also remember to moisturise and hydrate your skin as well!

Having said that, this is my first post in 2014, and what better way to start it than with a review of a skincare product from Linden Leaves! I'm sure some of you would have already heard of the product before, which is a Body Oil themed Absolute Dreams.

Linden Leaves Body Oil: Absolute Dreams (60ml/ RM168)

This body oil is made of Lavender (as you can see in the pic), and it comes in a 60ml bottle (there's another larger bottle of 250ml). I love the size of the bottle. It's small enough for travel, and it looks absolutely beautiful with the single lavender stalk in there.

The body oil itself doesn't smell too heavily of the lavender even though the flora is the dominant scent here. Rather, it smells quite earthy, with hints of lavender, and also rosehip.

Organic rosehip and avocado oils blended with pure sweet almond and apricot kernel oils, enriched with vitamin E and infused with a luxurious blend of lavender, sandalwood, cedarwood and orange, to keep skin soft and nourished.

This oil is designed to be used in place of a lotion after a daily shower - massage into warm skin for deep, long-lasting hydration. Also lovely to use as a relaxing massage or bath oil. According to the lady at Skintopic, the best way to make the most out of the oil is to massage it into your skin after your shower, and then to complement it with your current body lotion, to completely lock in the moisture into your skin, hydrating it really well. I did as she recommended, and my skin felt really hydrated the whole night, up to the next day!

List of the ingredients in the body oil. As you can see, there oils used are certified organic. So please don't be worried about putting inorganic stuff on your body :D

So how to apply and how much should you apply? You only need two drops of the oil for your entire lower arm. In total, only four drops needed for your entire arm. Rub it in, and voila! Your hand will feel super moisturised :D

After trying this for a week, I would say that this would be my go-to body oil whenever I feel that my body needs some hydrating, which is every day thanks to the weather :p It absorbs into the body very quickly and doesn't leave any oily residue. Another plus point is that the sweet scent lingers quite a while, so you can just enjoy it :)

My only gripe is that for such a small bottle, it's really quite expensive :( 60ml for RM168.

Verdict: 8/10.

Repurchase: Yes . Because it's so good! :D

  • Travel sized makes it easy to bring around
  • Sweet scent
  • Absorbs into body easily
  • No oily residue

  • Price

So will you get this for yourself? Let me know in the comments section below!

Til the next time, stay beautiful!
