Roger & Gallet Huile Sublime Bois D’orange

I am loving my oils these days. Dry oils, layered with my regular body butter has been my skin-saver this winter. And I am exploring more dry oil variations these days.

Roger & Gallet is French brand famous for their toilet soaps. They are scented and super lovely, reminded me of my childhood soaps... You can easily get Roger & Gallet products in various pharmacies and supermarket , like Monoprix, in France.

This dry oil contains 6 active plants oil with softening and nourishing properties. Also enriched with orange essential oil and vitamin E to make your skin soft, supple and satin smooth.

First, the fragrance… it is lovely sweet orange with woodsy base. I am loving it. Always freshened me up!
The oil is also lovely, silicone free and easily absorbed by my thirsty skin. But the soothing effect doesn’t last as long to me, I feel the need of topping up with more oil after a few hours. Comparing dry oils I tried so far, I still prefer Nuxe and Caudalie for their more moisturizing properties.  Amidst this dry winter weather, this is not moisturizing enough for me. But it might be a favorite when I am back in the tropics.

What I love the most from this baby is the packaging. No, not cutesy packaging, but the practical spray top and small, well decorated glass bottle. It fits into my travelling bag nicely.

Super practical and pretty bottle for travelling. Not moisturizing enough for winter, but might be perfect for more humid summer days!


  1. I've been wanting to try the oil cleansing method because there's so many girls said that OCM is really good. but I'm afraid that it will break me out >.<

  2. Hi Rindodo,
    I dont think this oil is suitable for oil cleansing, the Roger & Gallet oil is really for moisturizing. for Oil cleansing you can try cleansing oils from various asian brands like FANCL or Shu Uemura. or why not try budget friendly brands like Biore, if you just want to try and dont want to invest too much in it yet?
