John Masters Organics Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Milk - Review

How long have I been using it?

I received a sample from Hip Apotheca when I put through an order on their site. It was in one of those sample packs that you rip open and I squeezed it all into an empty 1/2oz jar I had.

How does it preform?

Since I just had the sample pack, I used this mainly on my hands. I'm a pretty harsh judge when it comes to moisturizers because I have pretty dry skin on my body, which is the complete opposite to the skin on my face and I have never really found anything that can make my hands better than what they currently are which is dry. I like to call them old lady hands, even though I'm only in my 20's.

This definitely absorbs really quickly, which is key for me since I work on a computer all day and I need to be able to apply moisturizers that sink in so I can get right back to typing after. It does an ok job for my hands but it doesn't last as long as I would like. I would say I would have to re-apply 2 or 3 times during the work day.

It's a very thin consistency fairly on the liquid-y side.


Orange-y and Vanilla-y. I can't stand the scent, it's too strong for me and it stays on my hands too long, which I hate.


I believe the regular size of this comes in a pump bottle, which I prefer for moisturizers, or for anything really, as you may have already figured out I'm not a huge fan of sticking my fingers into a pot or jar.

How long does it last?

I still have some of my sample left and I've been using it pretty regularly for about 2 weeks. I usually only apply this to my hands during the work day.

Where do I get it? which has a free shipping if you spend a certain amount deal for both Canadians (yea!) and the US. I know some spas and salons carry John Masters as well and you can get this from them direct at (for those Canadians out there yea! they have a separate Canadian site!) or from


No, based mostly on the scent, it's just too strong for me. It's also just not up to what I need for my skin.
