Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula

Moisturizers they come in many shapes – body lotions, body crème, body butters and lets’ not forget body oils. I love using products that help keep my body soft; I need them desperately as my body tends to get dry easily. I haven’t used too many body oils apart from coconut oil and olive oil. Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula seemed like a perfect refreshing addition to my summer skin care. Read more to find out about it.

The product claims to “Experience Neutrogena Body Oil. Its light sesame formula glides on easily to moisturize dry skin. It’s so sheer it vanishes into shower-damp skin leaving it soft and silky, with a radiant, healthy glow. No moisturizer can touch this experience.

After shower or bath: While skin is still damp, smooth on a few drops to help seal in moisture. Let your body dry naturally, or simply pat dry with a towel.

In the bath: Add to water and soften your skin while you bathe.

My Experience with Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula

I picked up Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula last year but I rarely used it as the winter made my skin extra dry. Now that summer is here in full swing I am enjoying using the numerous lightweight body moisturizers in my collection including Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula.

Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula comes in a transparent bottle packaging with a flip open cap. The packaging is very sturdy and secure, and since it is transparent you can easily see how much of the product is remaining in the bottle. I haven’t had any issues of leakage, but I am skeptical to carry it with me on any travel. The oil is very light and has a refreshing aromatic fragrance. I use this post shower when my body is moist and this body oil gets absorbed in a jiffy. Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula is not heavy duty and if you have dry skin you will feel that the moisturization is not enough. My skin in predominantly dry, while this body oil works well for summer, it was barely moisturizing for use in winter.

I love using oils whether it is on my body or my hair, but there is one thing I didn’t like about this oil – it contains parabens. This is a point I am finding very hard to overlook. The price is also rather high for oil, but the fragrance helps me easily overlook the high price tag. To conclude – Neutrogena Body Oil Light Sesame Formula is a good pick for summers and moisturizes skin well and refreshes your senses.

  1. That looks like a nice product Sangeeta .I have extremely dry skin and I have to keep moisturizing my body in summers as well as winters but I have never tried anything of this sort. I have only used olive oil to moisturise my body. I wanted to try this but the paraben content is an issue with me. It is expensive too. Great review dear.

    1. Thanks Yamini. If you have very dry skin I’d suggest skipping this. You could give TBS Body Butters a try, they are heavy duty and will moisturize even the driest skin.

  2. Sangeeta, I Love the fact that its a light weight oil, something which I was looking for. Great Post, I’m surely gonna buy it now… xoxo, Neha

    1. I would say this is more of an oil that can be used in summers rather than in winters. If you are looking for a body oil to try this hot and humid summer give this a try.

  3. Great review, Sangeeta

    I’ve been hearing to so many good things about this product from Neutrogena. I’m very skeptical about using a body oil in this summer though, considering the weather in Chennai. Crossed 36C already 🙁

    I hope I shall check this out in winters! Body oil is a sure shot way to get that baby soft skin. Ain’t it?

    1. The temperatures may have crossed 36 degrees, but it feels like 50. It’s hot and humid in the most uncomfortable way. I prefer using this in the night. If you have dry skin, this may not be very effective in winter.

        1. If you have just winter dry skin, this body oil will work well.
          I’ve been checking the Yahoo weather app – due to the high UV index and heat wave the temperature feels really hot. Right now the app says the temperature is 34 but feels like 44. It’s really hard, trying to stay indoors, drinking lots of water and spending the rest of the time taking numerous baths.

  4. Sounds neat, but yeah the parabens seem kinda pointless considering there are so many options out there without that! Have you tried Nuxe’s body oil? It’s made of mostly natural ingredients and smells heavenly!
