Let me start by saying, my skin hates everything!!! All lotions make my keratosis pilaris worse. Even the dermatologist recommended/hypoallergenic/noncomedogenic. Shea is a big no no and in EVERYTHING. So I decided to go the skin oil route but found most had minimal of the oils I was looking for and were mostly full of things my skin hates.
I happened upon a travel size of the Algea Body Oil at my local Ulta and after looking at the ingredients list thought, "why not?" Y'all!!! My skin is in love and I can see improvements after a single use!!! I'm still on my first travel bottle, months later, because I don't use it everyday, but now that I know it comes in a bigger size I'm using it more and my skin is so much clearer than it has been in years!!!
You need a tiny bit!!! Two pumps for upper body, two to three pumps for lower body (and I'm 5'10" so I have a lot to cover). Rub a pump or two between your hands and then pat, pat, pat all over before rubbing in. You WILL NOT feel like you used enough and your skin will not be slippery like with other oils but give it time! Even areas you swear didn't get enough will be more moisturized after giving it about 10 min to sink in! When I am feeling really really dry or just want to feel a little more luxurious after a good scrub, I mix the same two pumps with a dropper of Ulta's plain Jojoba oil to get the more traditional slippery body oil feeling.
It has been a long long time since I have been so in love with a skincare product! I'm expanding and going to be trying their Undaria Body Polish too!
TLDR: A little goes a long way. Ultra sensitive, dry skin loves it. Doesn't make my keratosis pilaris worse. Get it now!
I purchased this due to raving recommendations, and have used almost half the bottle. I don't find this ultra moisturizing or that it does anything special beyond other basic oils. The smell is okay, it does smell like algae. My face broke out when I tried to use it even on my dry areas. The consistency does not soak into your skin well. I haven't noticed any skin improvements at all. I have tried OSEA in the past with other products and every product I've found other brands have significantly better products with the same purposes with a better price. The brand is overpriced and mediocre unfortunately. This will be my last purchase from them. I will reuse the bottle though as it is very well made.
I found the I loved bio oil much more and I've found bio oil makes my skin feel way more moisturized, heals old scars and stretch marks, smells good, and the bottle has lasted for years. I will be switching back.

I was standing in line, and read its ingredients and decided to give it a try. Love ❤️ it! I use this oil and mix it with the Osea body moisturizer and MmmMmmGreat skin all day long. Great purchase, money well spent. Will continue to use everyday.

Nik from IN
It smells lovely, clean, citrusy. Melts in your skin right away and doesn't leave you greasy or stain your clothes!
AlexW from Tampa FL
This ouk is definitely a good quakity body oil and clean ingredients. The smell is a bit unpleasent and its very costly. I'd genuinely recommend trying it though if you're curious about it as long as you don't mind interesting scents lol.
Amy from Undisclosed
Absolutely love this. It smells wonderful and makes my skin so dewy. I use it after showers and it absorbs very quickly. New favorite.
Tila from Texas
I wanted to love this with a purchase of a body scrub but it only absorbs if your skin is wet from a shower. It wasnt anything special about it. It made your skin soft just like any othet serum you put on while youre damp. Not worth the price. Pass.
Casey from VA
Strong smell, but not a bad one. Kinda like lemons, or like the TONYMOLY green tea face moisturizer. Removing the cap on the travel size unscrewed the bottle each time, so be careful actually traveling with it.
mari from Los Angeles, California
i like using it after a shower and a little goes a long way! it absorbs into the skin decently well. ive seen reviews of the pump not working, but i was one of the forunate ones who got a good working one. that being said, its just okay. i would only buy this if it were on sale again, otherwise its not a product i would hype up to others.
brunettebabe from boston
I like the smell- it's different but it's pleasant overall. I like how it feels on my skin as its lighter than other body oils, but somehow didnt absorb as quickly as the heavier ones. I have eczema on my hands so I know my skin is on the drier side as a whole. HOWEVER, what I didn't expect was the skin on my legs to PEEL after a few uses of this product. My skin hated it & reacted. Please please patch test before use

Priscilla from Riverside ca

Michelle from Florida
I love this oil! It's perfect for aftershave and besides my body, I add a little to my hair! A bit pricey, but it's worth the benefit of being a clean and delivering product.

I struggle with really dry skin from being a self tan addict. I am constantly on the hunt for the newest and best skin lotions and potions to keep my skin moisturized after drying it out from self tanning products. The scent is absolutely AMAZING! It smells like I just left a very expensive spa. Very light earthy scent, not sweet. The only downside is, the scent doesnt last on your skin for more than 30 minites. This leaves my skin extremely smooth and soft, I mix this oil with the matching scented collagen lotion. Its a must have!!! Your skin absorbs it pretty quickly, there is no oily or sticky feeling left on your skin once you rub it in. For my self tanner girls- this also has helped my tan last longer! My tans dont settle into my ankles/elbows or "crack" on my skin after a few days!!! I have never ysed a better body product!!!

There's so many body oils on the market and I think this is the actual holy grail. A little goes a long way and your skin will never be the same again (in a good way). It's nourishing, but not too heavy and sticky, and the effects last much longer than with just a regular body lotion. My skin looks so glowy after I use it and of course feels soft and smooth and moisturized. I definitely want to buy the full-size. Best I've ever used.

This oil has taken my dried out old hag skin and made into a soft radiant leather
Dog Mom from Nebraska
I wanted to try something from this company for a long time. they are cruelty free and boast natural ingredients. I LOVE THIS OIL. I have sensative skin. I have used Bio Oil for a really long time for stretch marks and red skin but this oil has worked better for me. It it light and soothing. My skin is in heaven. I love the smaller size so you can try it first.
Jashira from Kissimmee FL
My dry skin feel so good after I use this body oil my skin look more healthy and I just adore the smell definitivo Ill buy the Big one!
Emily from Toledo, ohio
I love love love this product! It smells phenomenal, it also feel really good on the skin.
JK from West Hartford, CT
This product is great! The pump makes it easy to use, it absorbs quickly, and it makes my skin super soft. The only thing that is limiting me from giving 5/5 is because the smell is strong. It smells almost like some kind of orange bathroom cleaner. I personally don't mind the smell but again, it's incredibly strong.
SK from NC
Does not smell too great
Raven from Louisville, ky
I have heard people talking about this product for a while now so I thought I'd give it a try with the travel sized version. while I do love the smell it doesn't absorb into my skin as fast as I'd like it to. I'll see how it goes until the bottle is empty and give my verdict then.
CM from Absecon NJ
I love body oils and up until now, alaqaya used the moroccanoil night serum. I've now become osea obsessed! I've tried a few different products and I have loved each one of them! this oil absorbs very quickly, leaving behind a soft subtle glow. Just wish it was a bit cheaper
Dani from Tinley Park
I was skeptical but this works so well for very dry skin! I usually buy very thick lotion for extra dry skin that works BUT is absorbed too quickly. This keeps my skin mositurized for hours! I had bought the trial size to test but I will be purchasing full size from now on.
