Our neck and hands can be as age-revealing as our face. But did you pay due attention to them? Take myself as an example. I’ve done everything my purse allows to improve the look of my face and eyes. However, I’ve done little to my neck and hands. Yes, I’m a diligent user of hand cream. But that’s all I’ve done to my hands. Shouldn’t our hands and neck deserve more love? That’s when I bought Marie Veronique Organics’ Anti-Aging Body Oil.
First things first, here is the ingredient list.
Use for Hands and Neck Only
This body oil is clear. It has a fluid and runny consistency like MVO Anti-Aging Oil. Rose and neroli essential oils give it a floral and fruity aroma, which at first is a bit overwhelming for my nose. But over time I’ve come to love it and accept it for it leaves me smell fresh and lovely.
Okay, before I move on, let me tell you something else first. Although it’s called “body oil,” I never used it topically on my body. Instead, I only use it on my hands and neck. Priced at US$36 (60ml), it’s a pricey product for a humble gal like me. So you can imagine how lasting this product can be if you use it the way I do. In fact, I’ve been using it for four months, and there is still half bottle left!
Absorption varies on different body parts
So, how does this product perform? In terms of absorption, it varies depending on what body part you use it on. When I apply it on my hands, the oil can be absorbed within seconds. Two squirts are all I need for my hands. For my neck, I need one squirt only. However, the oil stays on my neck for minutes without getting absorbed and I guess my blanket must be stained with oil. Oh, well~ I think that’s the price you have to pay if body oil is your thing.
Rejuvenate Neck and Hands
To tell the truth, I didn’t expect anything spectacular would happen. However, I was wrong. After using MVO Anti-Aging Body Oil for I-don’t-know-how-long, I find my hand skin softer and less prone to dryness. I don’t even have to put on as much hand cream in the dry winter mornings when I use it the night before. My hands look and feel smoother and more moisturized than before.
As for my neck, a miracle-like transformation has happened! Sorry for using such emotional wording, but there is no exaggeration in it. I used to have two spectacular “tree rings” on my neck. Even with diligent massage for a couple of months, the rings were still there around the front part of my neck. I had no hope that I could make them disappear. But still I did the little effort I can do. I apply MVO body oil on my damp neck every night at bedtime. Then I massage my neck in an upward motion to help absorption. In a lapse of a couple of months, the rings’ depth have reduced by half! The photo above shows you the current status of my neck. Rings? Barely there. Even though my neck isn’t completely free of wrinkles, I’m not afraid of showing them. Yay!
I will give a thumbs-up for MVO Anti-Aging Body Oil. It’s light and non-greasy, with a lovely fruity scent. Using it consistently has helped me improve the look of my hands and neck. If I have to shed US$36 somehow, I will choose to invest in a quality product that really works. This is a product that I can find zero faults. If you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend you do.
