Imagine having skin so soft and so radiant that people do a double take when you walk by. Body oil does WONDERS for your skin and this one is the best! I am SO excited to share this with you!
We all have those products we just can’t live without. You know what I’m talking about. The ones where you start getting worried when you notice they are coming to their end (like the feeling you get when your wine glass is almost empty), so you try and savor every last bit (or sip), by using them less frequently until you replace them. Or am I the only crazy one?
Well, THIS is one of THOSE products for me.
Monoi Tiare Tahiti oil. I found this while honeymooning in Bora Bora at the overpriced gift shop in our resort. The first thing I noticed was the amazing, unique scent which is what ultimately led to my purchase. Tropical, floral, and vanilla…but not too strong. I became obsessed when my skin began to worship me. No longer was I getting breakouts on my upper arms or shoulders, my skin was literally GLOWING, and it felt pretty damn near close to a baby’s bottom. I can definitely tell a difference in my skin if I go too long without this stuff.
SO, WTH is it??
The Tiaré is Tahiti’s national flower. Monoi body oil is made by soaking petals of the highly fragrant Tiaré flowers in a coconut oil. A dried Tiaré flower is placed in each bottle to show that this monoi is the original and only one made using the ancient Polynesian method.
It hardens at room temperature, running it under hot water for 30 seconds does the trick. I just bring it in the shower with me. By the time I’m done, the steam has transformed it to its magical, liquid state. I put this all over my body, excluding my face, then put on a light robe and let it soak in for a good 15 minutes or so until I dress. I’m obsessed with the coconut and original gardenia scents. Majority of the scent fades away fairly quickly leaving you with a lingering, soft scent that is to die for!
Tahitian women are known for their beautiful hair and skin, this is why! I’ve heard it’s just as amazing for the hair as it is your skin. I have yet to experiment with that since me and hair oils don’t really get along.
I was SO happy when I found out I could get this stuff online and for so cheap! Honestly, I would have paid triple the resort price for this stuff, I’m that addicted. There are so many body oil imitations out there that are filled with nothing but preservatives and fillers. Tahitian monoi oil follows a strict manufacturing code that oversees the entire process from handpicking the Tiaré flowers to storage and shipping of the final product. ALL of the monoi oil is manufactured in Tahiti from pure Tahitian coconut oil and Tiaré flowers.
Another benefit, no preservatives, emulsifiers, or animal products are added. Your skin will thank you for this, I promise! So sit back, relax, and take in the scents of Tahiti while the smoothing oil works magic on your skin!
