REVIEW: J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream Body Oil Mist

by - October 17, 2019

When I was younger, I wanted to smell like cake pretty much all day every day. I was constantly in search of the intense vanilla frosting scented body products and layered them on like it was my full time job. As I've gotten older, my taste in scents has definitely changed and, dare I say, matured. Still, there is something about the delicious scent of dessert on my skin that can still get me. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream Body Oil Mist* and I find myself back on the smelling like dessert train.

Though I am trying to cut down on the number of products I'm using in my routine that contain fragrance, I legitimately cannot resist the smell of this. It 100% smells like a lemon dessert, evoking straight up memories of the feel of lemon meringue pie in my mouth when I smell it on my skin. I can't rave enough about how much I love love love the smell of this. Have I sold this enough? If you're looking for something that smells like crisp, zesty lemons, this probably isn't the scent for you, but if you're like me and you really love that sweetness and warm of lemony baked goods, I can almost guarantee that you're going to love how this smells.

When it comes to body oil, I'm definitely someone that prefers a mist to a pump just for the ease of use, and I feel like this dispenses a really good amount of mist per pump because it allows me to customize how much product I'm actually dispensing so nothing gets all messy and weird. For reference, I like about three pumps per arm of this product to give me good dispersion.

I really quite like how this body oil performs on the skin. It doesn't skew too thick or too thin and spreads easily over the skin, working in quickly so that you're not left with a bunch of greasy residue, but also leaving the skin looking fairly luminous. I honestly don't mind putting clothes on over this body oil within a few minutes of application and haven't had any issues. It feels really nice on the skin and gives a good amount of moisture to leave the skin feeling really, really soft and smooth. I wouldn't say that this is a replacement for a body lotion or cream, but I actually think it's a really great product to pair with your body moisturizer to really help lock in all of that hydration. 

I'm not gonna lie, oftentimes when I'm writing reviews I play with the product as I'm writing to really figure out how to best describe textures and scents and things, and I'm currently just sitting here basking in how amazingly delicious I currently smell after spritzing a little bit of this on a couple of times as I've been writing. No joke, even if I didn't actually like the formula of this I'd probably still use it because of how incredibly amazing it smells. But luckily, I do like the formula as well so this is a huge win for me!

The J.R. Watkins Lemon Cream Body Oil mist is available online at and they also have several other Lemon Cream scented bath and body products available - which I am absolutely going to need to get my hands on - as well!

Thanks for reading!
