Her first contribution is this review of KYPRIS' gorgeous Inflorescence Body Elixir, a Bergamot favorite.  This body oil will truly help transform your skin.  Read on below for Lacy's review!  

Kypris is a brand that is quite well-known in the green beauty community as one who sources quality ingredients to make truly natural, effective skincare. As such, when I heard that Kypris formulated a body oil, I knew that I had to try it, as I am already a fan of their Beauty Elixir II: Healing Bouquet, and their Moonlight Catalyst. I had previously smelled a sample of this intoxicating oil, so when Salwa of Bergamot Beauty offered to gift me this product for review, I was thrilled and did not hesitate to agree!

Initial Impressions:

  • First, the packaging of this product is divine. Embossed gold lettering on ivory paper sets the tone for a product that is truly luxurious. 

Size & Price:

  • $95 for 100 ml

Texture:

  • This oil is like liquid velvet. It is so soft and fluid. Truly magical. Neroli if one of the most precious essential oils on earth - that, and the fact that the oil is made with carriers that are typically reserved for skincare, make it well worth the $95 price.

Scent

  • An absolutely delightful, subtle scent of neroli and sweet orange (both sun-safe). Though wonderful year round, this oil is perfect for spring. The scent is not overpowering at all, and would layer well with other products in the same citrus/floral family. Also wonderful as a stand alone product.

Efficacy

  • This product really works well to moisturize my chronically dry skin, especially my legs. The scent is calming and soothing – very much an aroma therapeutic experience.

Suggested use

  • I like to apply this product immediately following a bath or shower, on wet skin, as this helps the oil sink in beautifully, and I’m left with a non-greasy, nurturing feel.
