Moisturize your skin without the sticky feeling of a body butter!
As someone with dry skin, I know the itching, peeling, and ashy struggles that come with changing seasons. I’ve learned the importance of moisturizing the skin on my face and body daily.
I’m also someone who likes to get spray tans or use self-tanning products, especially in the summer months. Fake tans and dry skin don’t mix well. If I don’t moisturize my body, my tan looks patchy by the third day.
So, for a while, I was searching for the perfect product to moisturize the skin on my body. I’ve tried countless body butters. They work, but they’re not pleasant to put on every single day because they leave me feeling sticky.
I received the M. Greengrass Dry Oil Spray in one of my Boxycharm shipments last year. (I can’t remember which one.) And OMG, I love it!
I haven’t written that many beauty posts for this blog yet, but I’ve decided that I want to take my content in more of a lifestyle direction. I’m so excited to share my thoughts on the M. Greengrass Dry Oil Spray because it’s a product that has made my life so much easier!

About the M. Greengrass Dry Oil Spray
This is called a “dry oil spray” because it’s intended to give your skin the moisturizing benefits of oils without feeling heavy or greasy. It’s super easy to use. You just spray it on and go!
According to the packaging, this product is manufactured in Manhattan Beach, CA.
How to use it
The instructions say to spray the oil directly onto your skin and massage it in using your hands. You can also spray it on your hair or face.
As you can see in the images below, the oils in the product are not dense. They disappear as soon as I massage the product into my skin with my fingers.
Here’s the ingredients list: Isopropyl Palmitate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Phospholipids, Tocopheryl Acetate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Fragrance (Parfum)
Okay, so it appears that the primary ingredient is Isopropyl Palmitate, which is a common thickening agent in moisturizers and other products. It is safe, but it is also known to be comedogenic in large amounts. This dry oil spray might not be suitable for your skin if it’s naturally oily.
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride is usually made by combining coconut oil with glycerin. This is a more natural alternative to synthetic ingredients found in many other products.
Butyrospermum Parkii (shea butter) is a rich moisturizing ingredient found in many hair and skincare products.
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil is known to be great for the skin because it’s rich in vitamin E, nutrients, and antioxidants.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil is another powerful moisturizing ingredient, but it can also clog pores for people with oily skin.
I won’t go through the whole list. I just wanted to discuss the top five(ish) so we can see what the main ingredients in the product are.
The list of ingredients is relatively short, which is a good thing for cosmetics. Usually, fewer ingredients means less junk and unnecessary additives.
The packaging says, “Contains natural botanical ingredients. Free of sulfates, parabens, pegs, artificial colors, petrolatum, and mineral oil. No phthalates. No animal testing.”
Sounds great to me! I can always get behind a company with ethical manufacturing practices. We love it when cosmetics companies actually care about what they put in their products.
Currently, this product retails for $36 USD on the M. Greengrass website, but that is subject to change.
What I like
This product feels amazing on my skin. No stickiness or greasiness. I love this product because it’s exactly what I was looking for.
I can spray this dry oil on my skin whenever I want, massage the product in, and I’m good to go! No shininess or weird residue. It only leaves behind softness and moisture!
The scent is called “Beach Air,” and it smells great. According to the packaging, the fragrance is a combination of bergamot, citrus, white jasmine, Brazilian soft woods, heliotrope, and musk.
What I don’t like
I love using this product on my body, but I don’t like using it on my hair. I tried it once, and my hair got super oily. (I probably just sprayed way too much, though.)
If you have very thick hair, this product might work on it.
Do I recommend it?
Yes! I love mine. It smells delicious, feels amazing, and works wonders for my dry skin.
However, if you have oily skin, you might want to pass on this product. Because my skin isn’t oily, I can’t say for sure how this product will affect you.
If you have oily skin or hair, I would avoid spraying this product on those areas. The product description says you can use it on your face and hair in addition to your body, but I personally don’t.
Where to buy
I got my product in a Boxycharm last year. I don’t believe this dry oil spray is available at Sephora or Ulta. I also couldn’t find it on Amazon.
However, you can order this dry oil spray on the M. Greengrass website.
