Becca & Mars Sugar & Spice Massage Oil Review

Becca & Mars Sugar & Spice Massage Oil Review

Indie brand,Becca & Mars Sugar and Spice Massage Oil is a moisturizing, naturally fragranced jojoba based oil. This massage oil has a woodsy-floral fragrance and moisturizes.

The formula is an oil. So, yep, it feels like oil. I love oils even though they are messy. I love how oils make my skin feel. No joke, I use body oils daily in the winter. My skin loves them. Sugar & Spice is a nice oil blend with. I use it after bath/shower when my skin is still damp. A little bit goes far. So I use about 1 to 2 pumps and massage in. I also like to use a pump in the bath. It moisturizes and fragrances. However, if you chose to do this, be careful! Oils make the tub slippery, duh. Be super careful.

The fragrance is natural and woodsy with hints of white flowers. I mainly pick up on earthy patchouli and sandalwood. I do get a bit of the heady, tropical ylang ylang, which is a very nice addition. It is heavy with patchouli and sandalwood so if you don’t like either of these oils in essential oil form, then you may hate this scent. Sugar & Spice will leave your skin scented with these natural oils. I love to spritz myself with Tom Ford Private Arabian Wood or Tom Ford White Patchouli after I use Becca & Mars Sugar & Spice. It’s a heavenly pairing!

Notes listed include sandalwood, sweet orange, patchouli, and ylang ylang.

Who may like Sugar & Spice Massage Oil? If you like bath, massage, or body oils then you should like Sugar & Spice. If you have massage/body oil experience then you know what to expect. It’s an oil, right? If you like natural woodsy fragrances, then you should like the scent of Sugar & Spice. If you have super dry skin and want a natural treatment, then try this. The pump bottle is a bonus. I feel it makes this oil less messy than other massage oils that I have used in the past.

Who may not like Sugar & Spice Massage Oil? If you hate greasy feeling moisturizers, then stay away! This is an oil. It is nothing like a lotion or body cream. If you have oily or normal skin, then you don’t need something this heavy duty to moisturize. If you do not like the smell of patchouli or sandalwood essential oils then steer clear.

A 4 oz. amber colored apothecary bottle retails for $12. This massage oil is available at Becca & Mars.

    1. I didn’t realize that Aftelier has a Patchouli & Spice Body Oil…it appears that Aftelier’s has much more spice. Becca & Mars is more patchouli with ylang ylang. Orange oil is in it too but I didn’t pick up on too much of that. I bet they smell different (I haven’t tried Aftelier’s so I wouldn’t know), but so are the prices being that Aftelier’s retails for $40 for 3.5 oz.

  1. Nathan Branch told me that in order to love the Aftelier, “you’d better love patchouli”, so my impression from that was that there’s not as much spice. So, who knows? The truth is, if I’m going to spend $40 on something, it probably won’t be body oil.

    1. I think we all say “you better love patchouli” if something smells the slightest of “natural” patchouli. I can’t think of a note that polarizes people more than patchouli. I’m on the LOVE end for patchouli, the dirtier the better. I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
