Body oils have been the talk of the beauty world lately and it isn’t just because this is the season of weathered skin. Here’s why: Potent blends of skin-transforming botanicals are making wellness-focused beauty a reality. In fact, the nutrient-packed elixirs have shifted skincare and haircare to become an integral part of your self-care. Each blend of customized oil is like a nourishing superfood for your skin, comprised of the most skin-friendly oils on the planet — think camellia, marula, squalane, and grapeseed oils to name a few. Here are 21 body oils that soothe, repair, hydrate, detox, and firm that will blow your everyday lotion right out of the water — but FTR, layering them with your lotion seals the hydration right in.
