Roger and Gallet Perfumed Dry Oil in Bois d'Orange | Review #BBBBeautyBoxII


When I saw this little bottle lurking in the box I had no idea what it was for, but I was certainly intrigued.

Roger and Gallet was founded in 1862 by Armand Roger and Charles Gallet in Paris. The brand is still going strong today.

Roger and Gallet say: With Huile Sublime Bois d'Orange, rediscover the olfactive magic of the summery, intoxicating scents of wood and orange at the heart of a delicious dry perfumed oil. Fluid,quickly absorbed, Huile Sublime Bois d'Orange  can be used on the body, the hair or the face. It contains a cocktail of 6 active plant oils with beauty secrets and natural qualities. Huile Sublime Bois d'Orange contains orange essential oil for toning and vitamin E known for its anti-oxidant properties. Nourished, moisturised and toned, the skin is sublime, glossy, soft, satin smooth and deliciously fragrant. Dermatologically tested, it is suitable for dry, sensitive skin. Silicone free, non comedogenic. Avoid the eye area.

I have only been using this on my face as part of my evening routine. I simply pat 2 drops over my moisturiser and wake up with lovely soft skin. I was worried about the scent being overpowering, but I find it to be subtle and relaxing. The scent is citrus and a bit floral but definitely not overbearing.

I haven't used it on my hair or body simply for the fact I want to savour it!
