I adore a good body oil. Not only do they feel super luxurious on the skin but they are so easy to apply. My rule of thumb is to apply them straight after a shower onto damp skin for optimum hydration. This Alex Edit takes you through my current favourite body oils for dry skin providing nourishment and a silky smooth finish – the ultimate treat!

This is a fantastic body oil packed with nine botanicals (including jojoba and camellia) in a lightweight yet super softening formula. Perfect for dry skins but also a great all rounder as it doesn’t have much of a fragrance to it. One I reach for often.
When it comes to choosing a body oil that’s effortless to use – this is the one. It comes in a spray format and offers incredible nourishment for the skin – as you’d expect from the cult classic 8 Hour range. And of course, as I’ve mentioned before, spray this onto damp skin as it will soak in so much better.
If you want to treat yourself to a body oil that exudes beautiful fragrance then the Nuxe edit is the perfect pick. I use the Huile Prodigieuse Riche which includes high levels of macadamia oil for deeper nourishment. As a dry oil, you get the benefits of intense hydration without a heavy or sticky feeling on the skin. I adore this range and the wonderful scents they infuse which can double as your fragrance of choice without the need for any other perfume.
My final favourite is this ultimate luxe treat! I adore this body oil balm. A transformative texture that you apply as a balm but as you massage it in, it melts into this oily texture that feels like satin on the skin! You’re left with brilliantly silky smooth skin that reflects a healthy, radiant glow.
