Purchased this one on discount, obviously, because the price is insane.
But I love fancy showering and post-showering items. And am always looking for something that doesn’t smell like cake on me.
HERBIVORE Citrine Glowing Hydration Body Oil comes in a small bottle and costs $44. It’s also “vegan, cruelty-free, noncomedogenic, and formulated without silicone, fragrance, gluten, artificial ingredients, unnatural preservatives, and fillers.” So, that part is nice. The description says it has a “citrus rose” scent, the bottle says neroli…and in reality… … I don’t get any rose, that’s for sure. I guess there’s a bit of neroli to it. It smells more like eucalyptus to me.
I love the way it feels although I doubt it’s doing anything to fine lines, veins, or capillaries. It’s doesn’t feel oily or sit on top of the skin, but it does leave you feeling very nice and moisturized and like you’re rich—which is a nice way for expensive items to feel. And it smells clean and bright—almost medicinal—like I said, there’s some eucalyptus there, but not in a VapoRub kinda way. In an herby, fresh way that doesn’t smell like cake at all.
The first night I wore this, Rusty sniffed me and said, “Mmmmmm. You smell great! You smell just like a coconut cream pie.”
