Is there anything more enjoyably indulgent than massaging a luxurious body oil into your limbs? We don’t think so, especially when the changing of the season sends your skin into a state of confusion.
Not only can body oils provide a silky feel and glossy finish to the skin, they can also act as a bit of rehab for any dryness or irritation you may be experiencing.
If you’re not already incorporating an oil into your body care regimen, we’d suggest subbing one in for a relaxing morning or evening ritual – especially in 2021, when we all could do with a little extra TLC.
To get you started, here’s GRAZIA‘s guide to the best body oils you can buy right now.
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, $140 SHOP NOW
A favourite for nights out, this Tom Ford oil is basically glossy summer skin in a bottle. Spiked with the white floral scent of Soleil Blanc, one application can easily take the place of a torrid tropical getaway.
Chantecaille Rose De Mai Body Oil, $144 SHOP NOW
A pure extract oil that proves the classic rose fragrance can be anything but boring. It also contains a nourishing blend of primrose oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E to simultaneously moisturise and regenerate the skin.
Sunday Riley Fairy Godmother Shimmering Body Oil Gel, $73 SHOP NOW
If we could remember what a disco looked like, we imagine it’d resemble the sumptuous glisten of this Sunday Riley winner. Besides the inclusion of brightening extraordinaire vitamin C, Fairy Godmother leaves a trail of shimmer in her wake.
NARS Body Glow In monoi body glow II, $94 SHOP NOW
This multi-purpose oil is a cult buy for a reason. The star ingredient, Monoi de Tahiti, lends a natural glow to the skin, while also soothing and smoothing the skin. It can also help to prevent peeling after a day spent in the sun, which would be handy if you weren’t already slathered in SPF50+ (you better be!).
Costa Brazil Óleo Para Corpo Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil, $144 SHOP NOW
From legendary fashion designer Francisco Costa comes this firming body oil. During his 13-year tenure at Calvin Klein, Costa was known for championing minimalism – however this nutrient-packed formula is anything but (and the heady scent is also downright delicious).
Chanel L’Huile Rose Body Massage Oil, $350 SHOP NOW
For the most indulgent emulsion on the market, look no further than this one from Chanel. It glides over the skin, imparting a gentle rose fragrance that lasts all day.
