I went to the linden leaves well-being seminar held at the tannery here in CHCH. It was made up of talks, snacks, goodies bag and what I wanted most of all was to try all their products at once.. with the option to buy at a discount price. So needless to say I got some Christmas shopping done.
We were actually given this oil in the goodie bag so I didn’t pay for it and thank goodness.
I just can’t get past the price I wouldn’t pay that for a body oil.. not when there are many more cheaper versions out there.. I’m loving a Swisse one at the moment.
I admire their ethics and work that has gone into making this oil which accounts for the price and they admit this. The freeze drying of the flowers and oil extraction etc it adds up.. it’s NZ made and quality ingredients. So I guess for me it just doesn’t fit into my budget.
They recommend using it straight after a shower to replace that moisture loss. It is nice after a shower and I didn’t think I was using a lot to cover my limbs. But the smell for me was a bit too powerful and “not me” maybe a different scent would suit me more but I think I would prefer plain or unscented given some of their other scent options. It did feel like it was absorbed quickly. But my skin didn’t feel overly soft despite using this so maybe up how much product you use to get better results.
I have this problem with a few of their scent options in other products.. I’m just not a fan sadly and I really want to like them especially being a company that started in CHCH. I just feel it’s maybe best fitted for a different target audience than myself.
