    Default Nars Body Glow II or Monoi Oil Tiare

    I know Nars is monoi oil with gardenia but which is better - the Nars or the original type Monoi Oil macerated with tiare gardenia ? ( Gardenia had to feature in there somehow )

    I have used the original type monoi but I want to know if you think the Nars is better quality,worth the price ( $59 ) and does the scent of it actually last ?

    Monoi is fabulous! And the scent will linger, close to your skin.

    And as much as I love Nars stuff, you can buy a POUND of monoi oil, directly from a soaper supply company, usually for around $21. Exactly the same product. No fancy packaging though

    If you want to try a few ounces shoot me a PM and I'll gladly send you some of my stash to try before you decide to spend more.

    Another good one is by Nuxe. They might have it at Sephora.

    I love Nuxe, it is one of my favourites as well. I love to use it when I wear a dress or shorts with bare legs. I would compare it to the Nars oil, and I prefer the Nuxe.

    My latest body oil love is Bio Oil. It may be my imagination but I swear as long as I use it regularly any stretch marks I have are less visible, and I mix it with my moisturizer as well. Just hooked on this stuff. It has an herbal smell (rosemary?) that I find addicitive but it doesn't linger or interfere with my perfumes. It could be a dubious snake oil for all I know, but it works for me!

    Have also used the Monoi oil they have at Yves Rocher but found it a bit heavy.

    My husband uses Bio Oil - yes, it's good stuff.

    I tried the Nars at Sephora but I do wonder if their tester was off- there was NO smell whatsoever - quite disappointing and I was ready to buy some !

    Monoi Oil is wonderful - I put some in my hair , then I sit in the steam room at the gym for 15 minutes ,wash and condition again - it really does moisturise your hair well and the smell is so divine.

    Must try the Nuxe- thanks !

    Also dying to try Michael Kors leg shimmer - I may buy some this weekend .

    I was just thinking the same thing- was at the Kors shop the other day and they had little mini Kors leg shine sticks, perfect for the purse! I was quite bad there so just ran out before snatching one up. Such a neat thing! Very well reviewed as well.

    I will try that hair trick! I personally have fallen hard for Moroccan Hair Oil and the Moroccan Oil hair creme. Miraculous.
