Oliva Oil Beauty

I have been using Oliva Oil's line of skincare products for some time in rotation with a few other moisturisers and serums. I recently received some of Oliva Oil's products that I hadn't tested out before, including facial cream, shower gel, and massage oil.

My mum uses olive oil in cooking, baking, and in her skincare regimen, so I grew up with using various oils typically for beauty long before it became a trend. Even my grandmother's family used karite butter (also known as shea butter), almond oil, and coconut oil in their hair and on their skin. As I get older, I find oils like hemp seed, coconut, jojoba, argan and olive oil to be some of my favourites, but for different uses (for hair, skin, and body).

Namely, olive oil is known for its naturally nourishing benefits including vitamins (of both A & E), being rich in antioxidants, as well as having excellent emollient properties to soothe the skin whilst restoring the skin cells.
I gravitated to the Oliva Oil hypoallergenic range because it's not overpowering in scent. The line has top notes of Mediterranean grapefruit, and cedar wood with the natural aroma of olive oil. As a person with allergies who generally loves perfume, I have caution when it comes to skincare products with added fragrance for obvious reasons.

Details
The body lotion is amazing, it's a non-greasy formula that makes your skin feel so luxurious, wonderful, and supple. I shared it with friends to get other feedback and we all felt the same way with the exception of one since she has severe dry skin. I also used it on my hands. The face cream (50 ml) is a thick cream and very moisturising. A little of both of these go a long way. Size: 200 ml

I liked the Bath and Shower Gel, and it leaves your feeling skin clean and smelling lovely. The body lotion was an ideal pairing with it post-shower. I felt a difference after using the gel (texture-wise) because of the smoothing elements. Size: 250 ml

The massage oil is more of a dry oil, which is great after rubbing it on your skin in circular motions. The scent seemed to have tiny notes of almond, but more of the olive oil aroma, and blends well into the skin. It claims to help tone the skin and prevent stretch marks. Since I already use various oils regularly, I can only say that this slightly helped to tone my skin. If you've concerns about stretch marks, perhaps stick to your go-to coffee scrub paired with coconut oil, or a helichrysum oil. Size: 100 ml

Overall, I'm happy with these products. My least favourite though was the liquid soap, although it's just soap, I wasn't exactly seeking massive amount of benefits after using. It cleans well and it didn't dry out my hands after usage, which was good. But, I recommend hydrating the skin after washing your hands anyway. Size: 300 ml

Packaging: beautifully labelled and embossed with brand name. Boxes have a high-gloss finish, and the lotion, shower gel, and liquid soap comes with an easy-lock closure. The massage oil has a screw-top closure.
