Forget nightmarish sticky, staining body oils and try this lightweight oil mist instead

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this fast-absorbing body hydrator

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / October 05 2021

The product

Oils can often get a bad rep. Perhaps because, traditionally, they were known to be heavy and not absorb very well; who here has previously applied body oil only to have it leave oily stain spots on everything you own? 

Yep, same. And we’ve had enough. We’re not the only ones either… 

Our Review Crew® members have experienced similar misgivings when it comes to traditional body oils, so when we sent them Aveeno’s new Daily Moisturising Oil Mist and heard only positive things about it, we just had to know more...

The Aveeno Daily Moisturising Oil Mist is a lightweight, fast-absorbing oil-based mist that nourishes, softens and smoothes skin by utilising oat, soybean and jojoba oils to condition dry, rough (and even sensitive) skin.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this innovative lightweight oil mist.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Aveeno Daily Moisturising Oil Mist to a panel of women aged 18 and older with dry skin who don’t like heavy oily body hydrators. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Aveeno Daily Moisturising Oil Mist.

A lightweight moisturiser: Those of our members who are averse to heavy body oils said they loved how hydrated the oil mist left their skin without feeling sticky or wet after application.

The mist applicator: Reviewers really enjoyed the mist format, with many saying it made application a breeze and it actually encouraged them to moisturise consistently post-shower.

The fragrance: Review Crew® members enjoyed the fresh, light scent of the oil mist. Many described it as a sweet but subtle fruity scent that lasted throughout the day without being overbearing.

The verdict

“I can be really lazy with moisturising my skin, but after using this oil for the first time, I’ve fallen in love with it and it’s now a part of my daily routine (maybe because the oil in a pump is easy and fun to use). Firstly it smells amazing. It’s a light, soft smell but one that lasts. Secondly, the oil is truly moisturising – I use it after I come out of the shower. It nourishes the skin and makes it feel soft and supple. Trust me when I say you can feel the softness the next morning too! I love how the oil is not greasy or heavy-feeling either.”

“This is the best body mist I’ve ever used! Firstly the smell is AMAZING! It’s fresh, fruity and sweet, I love it. It goes on easily and absorbs quickly. There’s no sticky residue or wetness after you apply it. It’s easy to use and a very generous size. I don’t like heavy body creams or ones that sit on your skin for ages afterwards so this is perfect for me. My skin felt like silk afterwards! I used it twice a day and it definitely helped keep the winter dry skin away! I think it will also be great in summer as it’s so light and smooth. Would recommend this 100% and will be buying it once I run out.”

“This oil was surprisingly such a good product! I don't usually buy oils for my skin but boy has my skin improved since using it after every shower. It applies well and the scent is amazing. A little bit goes a long way. The spray is an easy way to apply it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is looking to improve their dry skin and keep it soft and moisturised. The bottle is large and it will last a long time. I have even used it in my hair to help with dry hair then wash it out.”
