I'm currently rotating "SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus bath and body oil, #SoapandGlory Get Enriched Quick bath and body oil, #Dr.Teal's Lavender bath and body oil, #L'Occitane sweet almond Shower Oil and this product, #OseaUndariaAlgae body oil and I'm here to tell you there's nothing else like it! That isn't to say that the other's aren't good but only to say this. The Osea Underia Algae body oil indeed has similar ingredients, it absorbs completely into the skin. It has a natural brightening property that literally brings out the Best in my complexion, tone and suppleness. It leaves my skin so silky. It smells sweet and refreshing of ice cold delicious lemonade. It works to layer products effortlessly. I like to use lotion, butter cream, Vitamin C, AHA and BHA's to work on my skin overnight while I sleep. After this has locked and created a heavenly seal on my skin that is also nourishing, I sometimes add an extra layer in garments to prevent evaporation from the skin. I use a bit on my hair edges, eyebrows, hands, nails, and cuticles. This is a fast absorbing, quick and luxurious, nourishing effective barrier that has its own properties to enrich your body skin and unlock the hidden patiential it has to look radiant and feel glorious. It just does it better than the other guys.
Maybe I'm the only person with this complaint, but it's so hard to rub in. The product is super thick, greasy and sticky. You don't want to wet it, as it breaks the product down. I use it after the shower, as recommended, but it's like the oil never soaks in, just sits on top of my skin. If I toss a bathrobe on, I get fuzz stuck to my body.
My friend said, when she was pregnant, she would cover herself in oil and lay on a towel until it soaked in. This oil makes me think that's how you're supposed to be using it. I was never able to grease up and get dressed. I was sliding around in my own pants. So gross in leggings.
It also required a lot of product to cover my body. For reference, I'm 5'4", 134#, fit and hydrated (I drink 130 oz per day). The amount of oil required to cover this real estate was crazy. I've had this product one week, used it every other day. In the first week, 40% of the bottle is gone. Is this normal? If so, it's unaffordable.
The smell is really pleasant, it reminds me of a spa. Aside from scent, I had no luck with the Undaria algae oil. I see other people are raving, but I can't get on that bandwagon.
To be honest, my skin doesn't feel any different. I prefer their anti-aging balm. The fragrance was excellent. The consistency was much nicer and I didn't walk away covered in bathrobe fuzz.
I plan to return this product.

I received a sample of this in an Ulta skin care sample pack and I fell in love. I have a small variety of skin oils that I use regularly and I added this one because I fell in love. I like to use this in the morning because the scent is an uplifting one--to me it smells like citrus and pine, but it is on the lighter side and not overpowering. The scent also fades relatively quickly, so it wouldn't work as a perfume/fragrance oil. The body of the oil is lightweight and absorbs easily and quickly into the skin. It's pretty pricey, but I got this for half off during Ulta's skin care event this week. I would definitely buy this again, even if it was not on sale. LOVE IT!

I read so many 5 star reviews on this product and thought it was too good to be true.. but all the reviews are true! I have very sensitive, dry skin and suffer from irritation on my legs due to shaving but this body oil has transformed my skin. I've searched to find a product moisturizing enough for years and this is it! I used to have visible irritation on my legs but within a few days of using (on damp skin right after a shower), I have 0 signs of irritation, just completely clear skin! So impressed. If I could give this more starts I would.

I love it...truly feels like it's feeding my skin rather than just feeling greasy. It smells wonderful!
Artoodles from Atlanta, GA
Smells great but too thick.
Kat from Silver Spring, MD
I have the driest skin ever in the winter to the point that my skin hurts. I've been putting this on after I shower and it has completely eliminated my dry skin. And let me tell you I've tried everything and every type of lotion for dry skin and this is the only thing that has given me drastic results. Will be buying again and I don't even care how much it cost either
Becca from Texas
It absorbs so quickly into the skin, and smells like a box of lemon cookies. Made my body so soft.

I have been seeing OSEA's Undaria Algae Body Oil everywhere on social media, so I had to know what the hype was about! Of course, the price is a bit hefty, but I was lucky enough to get a bottle for 50% off during the ULTA Beauty Love Your Skin Event. After trying the product for a couple of days, I can definitely feel a difference in my skin. The hydration is unreal and the smell is definitely something to rave about. I will be joining the bandwagon of skincare connoisseurs on this one. It's a must-try, for sure.
Lola from North Carolina
I truly love this oil! It's hard for it to really sink into the skin, I always do it before lotion or while I'm still damp it absorbs a lot better that way. BUT you have to use a lot of the product and literally a week later if used every single night or day I only have like 50% or so left. It is not worth it for that price, I'm still on the hunt for the perfect fragrance free, natural body oil! Is this worth it? Maybe if you wanna use it for one area, but not for an entire body kind of oil!
Colorado Cutie from Denver Colorado
I'm an east coaster who moved west. I'm used to humidity and oily skin, I got dry skin in the Colorado mountains. I mix this with some very simple Aveeno body lotion and it's fantastic!! I highly recommend it and I'll be purchasing it again. My sensitive skin is in absolute heaven!

I love oil! Hands down my fav!
Redruby from Mo.
I was hesitant to buy this because of the price but after reading several good reviews I gave it a chance and I'll never go back!! I recently ran out and tried another body oil and my skin is back to winter dry, I can't wait to get my next bottle.

I have had this for the winter and it keeps my skin moisturized all day without the need to re-apply. However when I first apply it, it takes a bit to dry down compared to the dry oils I'm used to. I love body oils more than lotions and I have had my share in the past 15 years. My ultimate favorite is Nuxe Huile Florale followed by ByTerry's. Osea's oil is slightly thicker than Nuxe or ByTerry's; it has a similar texture and feel to Diptyque's and Elemis Monoi oil. I do enjoy the citrus scent that smells like oranges, but I do prefer the neroli scent by Nuxe Florale. Will I repurchase? I might, it has a great price point since it's cheaper than Nuxe or Byterry. Plus, having this in Ulta with discounts and with this delivering the same effects compared to other dry oils makes it a better option.
Linda from Florida
This body oil is everything to me. Best oil that I ever used! I require not lotion with this oil. Price is high and I never catch it on sale.
Amy K from Idaho Springs, CO
I rave about this product to all of my friends! I've never been so impressed by a body oil. The smell is wonderful and it feels so nice. It absorbs so well after a few minutes. Very luxurious experience!
len from orlando
I have the travel and full size and i LOVE both. i love being able to refill the travel size when i run out so i don't have to worry about breaking the larger bottle. works wonders for skin
Nuríel from New York
This body oil is easy to spread around your body. It's smells very relaxing. The scent is warm and not harsh. Just with a small amount you can get so much out of it. The oil is inside of a glass bottle. So be very careful with placing down.
Cinnamonie from NC
Love this oil I'm on my second bottle and I have two more under the sink as I never ant to be without it. Now I agree with others this oil is on the pricey side for the amount you get but I say if you can afford it and it works for you then I say buy it!!! I'm a 40 yo African American woman with dry skin. I'm talking the kind of dry where I would literally itch/scratch all day. Plus I just had a baby so I have to be careful what I put on my skin as to not break out my little one. Now I'm plus sized, a size 20 and one bottle last me 3 weeks and I use it every night and I'm generous with my application. This is a dry oil, it doesn't leave a greasy residue on your body and it absorbs quickly. I love the citrus scent. I have noticed that my skin is softer and my cellulite on my thighs is not as bad, like it is firming up. If you've been thinking of trying it I say go for it, worse case it doesn't work and you return it but if it does you will be pleased.
undariavision from Los Angeles
It has been a whole 24 hours since i put this oil on. I've changed my clothes multiple times and have obviously been to bed. My skin is STILL moisturized. I have never actually had a product that was this moisturizing for this long after applying. Unfortunately for my bank account, I'm gonna be repurchasing until they either stop making it or my arms fall off
Sparkles from Minnesota
It is very pricey, but I am happy I splurged on this gem. It's very cold and dry here in MN, and this keeps me hydrated and not itchy. Will buy again next winter!
Denise from Winston Salem
I have had eczema since I was four years old. An absorbent oil to rehydrate after a warm bath/shower is a crucial part of my daily skin routine. This oil works! Osea smoothed elbows and knees. The scent is light with a hint of lemon.
msthang from san francisco, ca
This oil smells amazing and feels so good on the skin!
Mimi from Newport Coast, CA
I was on the hunt for a good body oil to use after showering. Body lotions just do not hydrate my skin enough. I purchased this along with a few others that were highly rated. After using this one time, I didn't even bother w the rest. Gave them all away and now I'll be purchasing my second bottle. I do wish the bottle was a little bigger though.
EC from Pembroke Pines, FL
Been using this everyday since i bought it. Best to apply right after the shower when your skin is a little damp. Love the smell - citrusy and clean.
Lacie from Maryland
Great product, I would use this daily but the downside is a bottle would only last me about 3 weeks.
