Oils seem to be everywhere at the moment and up until last year, I’d never really used them for much apart from cooking! However, now I have an oil for every occasion, so here is my pick of the best!
For the Body: Caudalie Divine Oil*
With a blend of grape, sesame, argan and hibiscus oils, this beautiful oil leaves your body soft, smooth and smelling amazing. It can be used on the hair, nails and in the bath, but I prefer to use it as a body oil after I get out of the shower. This fuss-fee oil is easily absorbed into the skin and has a spray nozzle on it, so you can simply spritz it on and rub it in and you are good to go! You can read about this and the rest of the Caudalie Divine range here. Available from Bath & Unwind from £18.
For the Hair: Moroccanoil Treatment Light
This is an absolute necessity in my hair care routine, I use one pump of this on damp hair before blow drying to protect and treat my hair which leaves it smooth and sleek. I prefer to use the light version as it is more suited to my fine, highlighted hair than the original and does not weigh it down it all. There are many hair oils on the market now, but this is my favourite on those I have tried. You can read my full review of this here. Available from Feel Unique from £13.45.
For the Cleanse: Super Facialist by Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleansing Oil
As the first step of my evening double cleanse, I love how this oil removes every scrap of make-up whilst nourishing my skin. It is infused with vitamin C, grapeseed, olive and rosehip oils which make it smells delicious and I love how it makes my skin feel as it is massaged into the skin. A recent addition to my skincare routine and a welcome alternative to micellar water. Again, I have a full review of this here. Available from Boots for £10.99, although watch out for offers!
For the Face: Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
A fairly new addition to my skincare routine, but I have high hopes for this oil that is meant to be amazing at reducing marks and scars, as well as sun damage and fine lines! It does smell a bit strange, but I can overcome this for positive results. I simply press a few drops into my skin after cleansing and toning as a treatment before moisturising. It is great for my dehydrated skin and brilliant for reducing redness. Pai skincare is especially formulated for sensitive skins and I love every product I have tried from them and this is no exception. I shall report back, when I have used it for longer. Available from Pai for £20
For the Bath: Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil
Aromatherapy oils are great for helping you to unwind and de-stress. This glorious little oil from Aromatherapy Associates however is more of an uplifting little blend of pink grapefruit, rosemary and juniper berry, pine and coconut oil that can also be used in the shower to detoxify and refresh. A few drops of this in the bath is enough to perk you up and stop you feeling sluggish. Breathe in…and relax! Available from Beauty Bay for £32.56 for a 55ml bottle.
