Whish Blueberry Body Oil Product Review

This is a product review for Whish.
I received a bottle of Whish Blueberry Body Oil to review. All views are 100% my own.

I spotted the brand Whish on social media a couple of weeks ago. I thought their packaging was really pretty and their illustrations (advertisement) were very cute. I made a quick note to give their products a try and left it at that. You can imagine how I felt, when I received an email from their PR group asking if I would like to sample one of their products. My reply was yes! With a cherry on top! HaHaHa Whish sent me their blueberry body oil ($28/3.5oz) to review. Almost every product from Whish, comes in SIX (6) scents: pomegranate, lemongrass, almond, lavender, coconut and blueberry. They sell body wash, sugar scrub, shaving cream, body butter, hair inhibitors, serums, deodorant wipes and a Summer tanning line. Below is my review of the blueberry body oil.
The first thing I noticed about Whish's body oil, was the sleek packaging. It's minimal and sophisticated. I love that it's glass! It sits beautifully on a counter or vanity. You will want to display it. The second thing I noticed was the pump. The pump is great! It's sturdy and easily dispenses the body oil. I also want to mention, the container & pump for the body oil can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth. The "label" for the container is printed ON the glass bottle. I mention all of this, because I admire a company that not only thinks about their product, but also their packaging. To me, both are equally important and shows pride in what they do.
The third thing I like about Whish, is that their products are paraben, sulfate, DEA, TEA and petrochemical free. They use naturally sourced and organic ingredients. They don't test on animals.
The fourth thing I like about Whish is the SCENT! Omg'd, the blueberry smells like REAL blueberries! The snozzberries, smell like snozzberries. HaHaHa Sorry, I had a Willy Wonka moment. But this oil smells REALLY good. I love it. Finally, the fifth and most important question is, do I like this product? The answer is, I like it...but I don't love it! Let me explain. This product promises to enhance my skin's natural luminance and it does. If you look at my hand below, I applied the body oil to my hand and rubbed it in. Do you see how my skin has a nice glow? I then applied more product on top, so you could see the consistency of the oil. Now, does this product reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? I didn't notice anything (you can see the lines in my hand), just a nice glow to my skin. So what about moisture? It's a pretty heavy oil. It's great for colder climates and for Fall & Winter. If you're looking for an oil that has a great scent and will provide a glow to your skin (luminance), then this product is for you. If you're looking for moisture, ummm maybe not (this sits more on top the skin, than sinking into it). I do want to mention, it's NOT sticky (so that is a plus). Overall I like Whish's body oil, but I'm not in love with it. However, I will definitely try some of their other products, because their scents are amazing. I'm very interested in their body wash, shaving cream and body butter. When I try those products, I'll review them for you here on the blog.

  3. It sounds like it smells wonderful, just a shame that it doesn't soak in too much, I don't like oils that just seem to sit on my skin!

  5. This sounds lovely!! I love when products smell like they're suppose to smell like, the fake scents are annoying. I only tend to need a oil type product in the winter time as my skin dries out & not during the warmer times as my skin becomes a little oiler. But, i would try it & see other products as well since these ones are free from the nasty additives that are usually found in products. Super & honest review doll, I appreciate that!! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend <3

  6. I would probably try it just for the beautiful scent you describe! What a shame the not moisturize! But you know, Im not much into body oils, my skin often reacts bad to them. You did a honest and good review Kim! Im dropping in wishing you a very Happy Easter my dear, hope you have a very sweet time full of chocolate!:) Many hugs!:*

  7. I am an absolute sucker for packaging too. The product can be horrible, but if it looks good, it's in my room. Haha. I'm not a fan of heavy oils so maybe I won't be running out to buy this any time soon, but the sleek packaging is really tempting me. The fact that it's glass sounds perfect! Hope you're having a lovely day. Happy Easter. Rosemary x

  10. Hello Kim!! I have a hate love relationship with body oils: I love the idea of a luxurious body treatment, but I'm always afraid that oil will ruin my clothes. Now I only use body oils in summer: after showering I apply the oil on moist (not dripping) skin, just a few drops for the whole body, and l let it absorb. Then I put on my wardrobe before getting a cold. Have you tried this way? I stopped by to wish you a happy Easter and ended up preaching about body oil :-) I wish you the best chocolatey Easter ever!!

  11. Mmm, if something has a good scent I'm always drawn to it. This sounds positively delicious! I'm curious what their other body oils smell like. Great review as always Kim!

  13. I love that oils are starting to permeate the market more and the packaging on this is just lovely. That said, I've gone back to basics and mix up my own that way only what I want goes into it. Hoping you will cover more oil based products as I think they are the answer to so many skin issues.

  18. The packaging really is gorgeous and would grab my attention too and I love that you say it really smells like blueberries. I don't see many beauty products with a blueberry scent and I think it's so impressive they got really got it to smell like blueberries too.

  19. Hmm, even though this has a lovely smell I think this is not for me D: Heavy oils will just make my skin be even more oily I think D:

  21. I'd love to try something other than body oil from Whish - I haven't needed the moisture from an oil since I stopped living in a place where temperatures dropped to minus 40 celsius in the winter. In the right situation, body oil is wonderful but for most of us, it's not neccessary. But a blueberry scented body wash that smelled like real blueberries, I would be all over!
    xox,

  23. You are right about how important packaging is - I will often buy things just because I want to look at them sitting on my vanity!

    I'm not sure I'd be in love with body oil either, but if the scents are that amazing on all their products then I can see they would be worth trying.

  26. It sounded like it had such promise with the scent, too bad it doesnt moisturize. Thanks for the honest review!

  28. What a bummer, Kim. It doesn't surprise me though. I find that most body oil are so difficult to rub into skin no matter what brand (Josie Maran's included). They tend to sit on top which is why I don't like it.

  31. I was getting all excited reading the review.. and then the last paragraphs. I cannot stand heavy oil, I think you were very fair in explaining the reasons of how you ranked it. Its a breath of fresh air to find objective reviews.

  32. i really like the packaging and the fact that it is a glass bottle. definitely on for the vanity IF you have extra cash laying around :) haha.

  33. Nice. I might try this since I love blueberry, and for the summer I could totally use that glow. I'll just be sure not to ditch my lotion! ;)

  34. Seems to be a great product :)
    I really like the simple packaging :)
