Massage is really good for you. It is actually not just something you can enjoy but also something that is healthy for you. It improves blood circulation, while helping your heart and arteries. It's not just me, scientific studies have also shown benefits of massage therapy for insomnia, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, cancer pain, post-operative recovery as well as multiple other conditions.

I LOVE getting a massage, its extremely relaxing and therapeutic. I also do my own massage though I wish I had a permanent masseur at home, sigh. I have been working out (or trying to at least) so been doing a lot of arm, leg and stomach massage myself for toning and preventing stretch marks. Massage oils definitely helps add on to the experience which is what ELEMIS Spa Home Japanese Camellia Body Oil did for me.

ELEMIS is a luxury, high quality skincare brand. I have tried multiple skincare products from Elemis which you can read about HERE. As per brand: "Japanese Camellia oil is one of the finest grade carrier oils for aromatherapy. Used for the care of nails, hair, scalp and combination skin, this light oil is easily absorbed and rich in plant collagen to keep the skin moisturised and supple, helping to prevent stretch marks.

This oil product is from their ELEMIS Spa Home range which focuses on developing products that are as good as spa products but can be used at home.

First of all, I am completely in love with the bottle. The packaging is superb with its wine red metallic sheen but the bottle is beautifully crafted. From the deliciously sensuous feel of wine red frosted glass to the screw open tear drop top, it feels amazing  to look at as well as  to hold, obsessed!

Coming to the oil, the Japanese Camellia oil doesnt really have a strong scent of it's, though it does smell very pleasant. This body oil is actually a blend of Japanese Camellia and Sweet almond oil (which also means they are rich in plant collagen). The oil is thick yet not greasy or sticky. When you massage it into your skin it absorbs easily and leaves behind a soft, nourished skin. By the way, Japanese Camellia is a flower and this oil is extracted from it.

Now even though it targets new mothers and used for pregnancy care (and I am neither and mother, nor pregnant) the main focus is what it actually does. So if you want to have a youthful skin with reduced stretch marks, no fine lines or wrinkles, then your body needs this. Of course no natural product can perform miracles overnight but you will see that it provided results in a couple of weeks. It is also great for nails and hair so a great all rounder to invest in!

In short, this oil will:
  • Prevents stretch marks
  • Strengthens hair, skin and nails
  • Safe for use during pregnancy
  • Softens skin
  • Great for Skin with Acne, Dryness, Stretch Marks, Sensitive Scalp
