With summer just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to re-evaluate your body care routine. The warm weather season brings on short sundresses and denim cut-offs that’ll have us showing more skin than usual. This is why we should be getting our body care in check, and nothing will get your skin baby soft and glistening in the sun quite like body oil. Not just anyone either — the best that I’ve found that gets the job done is Nativa SPA’s Madagascar Vanilla Soothing Body Oil.

Take it from me: as someone who typically finds body oils to be straight-up messy, I instantly loved this vanilla body oil. Honestly, I never could understand why there was so much hype behind body oils until I tried Nativa SPA. Unlike other body oils that are thin and liquid-y, the Nativa SPA Soothing Body Oil is relatively thick in texture, without being greasy, and still lightweight. Applying it to my skin was so satisfying, leaving it surprisingly softer and moisturized than I expected.

What sets Nativa SPA’s vanilla body oil apart from others is its signature ingredient, quinoa. Formulated with 100 percent pure quinoa oil, it’s rich in antioxidants and creates a soft, smoothing consistency that’s a joy to apply. Like I said before, I think body oils are messy — they tend to get everywhere while feeling greasy on your hands and even clothes, but not this one. Perhaps my skin was just so thirsty, but the way that it soaked up this body oil instantly while still feeling moisturized and hydrated, so much so that I didn’t feel the need to apply lotion afterward.

Plus, it smells fantastic! I know when some people think of vanilla, super sweet, sugary scents come to mind, but this soothing body oil is not like that. While it is sweet, the vanilla is rather subtle and not overwhelming. It has a comforting blend of sweet florals and woodsy notes that’s perfect for any time of season — especially summer. This fragrance, paired with your favorite SPF, will help combat that typical sunscreen smell that most people aren’t fond of. “It’s a very light scent that lingers all day,” one shopper wrote, while another said, I am in love with this smell and the way it makes my skin feel!”

And I couldn’t agree more. Not only did it make my skin feel amazing, but it also helped it look downright stunning if I do say so myself. This body oil went beyond combatting ashy, dry skin and made it glisten and give it a natural glow. After using it during my “everything” shower, I felt like my skin was too radiant to just go to bed; it needed to be seen. So this summer, before I step out in mini dresses and tank tops, I’ll be sure that Nativa SPA’s Madagascar Vanilla Soothing Body Oil is the first thing I put on.
