Although I love a good slather of organic coconut oil after a shower. Sometimes I need something a bit more indulgent and luxurious.
As the weather slowly changes from Summer to Autumn, I find myself getting drawn to richer more luxurious oils.
One of the best ways to increase moisture level in the skin is to invest in a great body oil. An oil will really help to moisturise and can be layered under your regular body butter.

Clarins Anti-Eau Contouring OilWhy I Love It: this is best used before a shower once you have massaged it in. The oil helps to eliminate excess fluids and toxins as well as soothing tired legs, immediately absorbs into the skin and does not feel overly greasy for an oil.
In the late 1940s Jacques Courtin-Clarins became something of a celebrity in Parisian society when he pioneered a water-draining lymphatic massage technique he called the Paris Method, to relieve sore muscles and improve skin tone.
He perfected the technique and developed three blends of botanical oils:
Body Tonic for firming and toning,
Relax Oil to ease overworked muscles,
and Anti-Eau for contouring.
The oil is a mixture of essential oils such as Geranium, Marjoram and Lemon – the Geranium is what
comes through most dominative in terms of scent, which is a strong floral type fragrance.
L'Occitane Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Supple Skin OilWhy I Love It: This oil is more than 50% Almond Oil and it also contains Camelina Oil. Both are very high in Omega Oils, which my skin loves! Skin smells faintly of almonds after you use it, and it moisturises for up to 48 hours.
A quickly absorbed indulgent body oil formulated with more than 50 percent almond oil to help skin feel firmer, smoothed, and hydrated.
