6 nourishing body oils for glossy, hydrated skin

Transform your moisturising routine from a chore into a treat.

If you’re ever looking to dial up the decadence of your daily rituals, body oils are the perfect place to start.

Able to transform the often mundane task of moisturising your body into a highly satisfying sensory experience, oils allow you to execute an important step in your routine in the most luxurious manner possible.

In addition to their impressive longevity (both in the bottle and on the skin; a little goes a long way with oils), and ability to penetrate the skin’s barrier and thus hydrate deeper within, these highly concentrated formulas also impart a glistening glow that lotions and creams could only dream of; a factor certainly worth listing in the pro column.

Here, Girlfriend rounds up the best body oils for glossy, hydrated skin.
