Huile de Magnolia was created in 1980 by Jean-Marie Greyl at the request of his wife Leonor, who wanted a special oil to use while massaging clients’ shoulders during their hair and scalp treatments at L’Institut in Paris. Jean-Marie, who was never satisfied with the minimum, created a multi-use oil that richly hydrates and soothes skin, prolongs tans and removes makeup. He infused the blend with an exquisitely addictive scent of magnolia flowers. To name this new creation, his daughter Caroline suggested “magnolia,” because at the time she was a fan of the Claude François song “Magnolias Forever.” Today, this exclusive natural oil for face and body beauty treatments has a cult following around the globe.

  1. Trish

    I love all of their oils, but this one is special and smells exactly like magnolias without the typical cheap scent from other brands. The oil is light but moisturizing and not greasy after it sinks into the skin.

  2. Annick De Verneuil

    I have been using oils for my neck and face for a very long time. However, the magnolia oil is beyond special : it moisturizes evenly , the product is thin and silky , and the most important fact is that it lasts all day. It is divine! Of course the light scent transposes you into a garden somewhere in the south of France.

  3. Hans-Jacob Schmidt

    I like to always keep an oil around that I can use multiple ways to supplement my regular routines. I love using it after shaving or on my body when I just want to have that lux after-shower feeling. While I normally don’t use scented products on my sensitive face, I can use this on the skin covered by my beard without any reactions. Only glow with soft stubbles. Might seem expensive at first, but the full-sized bottles lasts a good amount of time.

    Best product to grab for vacation
    Love the size fit in travel size but is plenty for the all year
    I use it as a face moisturizer, sunburn canceler, scalp and hair moisturizer and face and body perfume
    Absolutely love this gem

  5. Monica A.

    Keeps my skin hydrated and glowing. I like to mix it with olive oil for extra moisture right after the shower or bath.

  6. Melody Pen

    It’s a fantastic and luxurious oil.
    Aroma: lightly nutty but not overwhelming. The magnolia is aromatic, classy, feminine, and becomes your own scent as the day progresses leaving a very warm and floral smell that is so feminine and beautiful. Seductive and classy.

    I apply to my damp hair along with HUILE SECRET DE BEAUTÉ because this oil is slightly thicker. I have thick, wavy, frizzy hair. A small penny size on my ends allows for the tips to stay hydrated and leaves an intoxicating smell that my husband adores and gives me compliments all day wherever I go.

    Face: right out of the shower, after washing my face, or on the plane (I’ll wipe down with a makeup removerand then apply). A dot or two rubbed between your hands and pressed on the face is fantastic. It’s not sticky, nor oily. More like a serum. My skin’s pores have tightened, I have a nice glow all day and I can apply anything over it. I have sensitive skin that likes to peel in cold, hot, or even humid weather. This has been a life saver and the original reason I bought the oil the first time.

    Night serum: apply before bed, put your cold cream on top or just as is. Amazing hydrated, soft, suple skin.

    After sun: I lik eto tan, and I’m Mediterranean so I mix with olive oil or almond oil to hydrate my skin after the sun. I avoid peeling, blistering and my skin tans a very nice olive while maintaining its elasticity and glow.

    Sauna: I’ll mix this with HUILE SECRET DE BEAUTÉ and/ or my favorite hair mask. Put it on my dry hair. Massage thoroughly, comb it through. Walk into the hot sauna. My hair has been sooo hydrated. Bounce, shine, beautiful aroma even after shampooing. Of course I add more on the tips after the shower.

    I LOVE this oil. It smells divine. A little goes a long ways and it’s so versatile. I have it in my gym bag, one in my backpack as I work at a hospital and commute, one in the bathroom and in my bedroom.

    My husband knows to get me this for my birthday and it must be in twos 😊

    If you’re not sure, try the travel size one first and you’ll find you should have just gotten the big one. It’s a wonderful oil. Not as tropical or beachy as HUILE SECRET DE BEAUTÉ, and also it is much thicker comming out of the pump, but hence less is more and the extreme moisturizing you’ll get from this product.

  7. Hillary

    Envision being wrapped in the sensuous scent of Magnolia, while glistening with the summer glow of natural oils. Using this body oil provides me with supple skin, an alluring aroma, and an extra hint of confidence. It truly takes my beauty routine to an elevated level. Leonor Greyl always delivers unsurpassed self-care products. Many thanks and much gratitude!

  8. Charlote

    Fantastic oil to use on the face. My skin looks incredible. I will use it again.

  9. Julie

    This oil is a dream for dry skin and hair, and the smell is amazing. Even though it’s not meant for hair, smoothing a few drops through my ends tames frizz for the whole day. Will keep repurchasing!

  10. Michele

    This product is amazing , every time I apply it to my skin the smell just takes me away, it is so fragrant and soothing to the body .. I am running low as I use this every night .. time to replenish .
