Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt

September 19, 2015

When the weather starts to become cold and dry again, facial oils are my skins best friend. It's a definite promise that when Autumn and Winter make their return, so does my dry skin, so I can definitely admit that I've had my fair share of facial oils and moisturisers. However, no matter how many I find and love, I always go back to the Elemis' Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt. I've never bought a bottle myself considering I have been using it for years, but somehow I always find one in my possession. I think it dates back to when my mum recommended that I use some of hers one year, which was the year that I was going through an awful dry skin phase (I hope I shall never have to relive that one) and since then, my skin has never gotten so bad.

The first thing that comes to mind about this oil is the scent. Oh merciful godfathers, it is the nicest smelling oil I have ever used and that is no overstatement my friend. I normally hate scented skincare products, but this one is an exception. The best words I could possibly use to describe it are luxurious, sweet, and florally, hence the frangipani. I've nearly used up the full bottle, even though it may not look like it in the pictures and I must say, it has lasted me one heck of a long time. 

The concept of the oil is actually quite interesting as it's naturally solid and you have to put the bottle in some hot water to melt the oil and turn it into a liquid. Once it cools, it then transforms back into its original solid state. It's lovely having a warm oil to massage into your skin because it only adds to the whole luxurious experience. The oil itself is so silky and moisturising and once its fully absorbs into your skin, continuously feeling how smooth your skin is becomes a problem because its almost too good to be true.

It is rich and takes a while to soak in, so its best to use it before bed or in the evening so it has longer to fully absorb. The only con I have about the oil is the fact that if you accidentally get it in your eyes, it really does sting.. a lot, but no one is as stupid as me so I doubt that's a problem for anyone else who uses it.
