If we’re being honest, the prospect of having to lather up with another fruity-fragranced shower gel gives us wartime flashbacks of being 12-years-old and thinking using strawberry-scented everything was a personality trait.
We’ve been there, done that, and now we’re moving on.
Enter: shower oils. The sensual older sister of shower gels if you will; her fragrance tends towards a more mature bouquet, while her formulas promise luxurious nourishment that extend well beyond wash time.
For the shower sophisticate, these are the oil-based formulas sure to elevate your daily cleansing ritual:
L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil
If you’ve never experienced this almond shower oil for yourself, we’ll try not to ruin the experience by oversharing but let's just say, the soft, almond-scented lather created by this luxurious offering makes shower time a true delight to say the least. Treat yo’self.
The Body Shop Hemp Hydrating & Protecting Shower Oil
This protecting and hydrating offering from The Body Shop utilises their famed hemp oil formula for a deeply nourishing cleanse that helps to rehabilitate stressed out skin. Nix dry limbs and say hello to a strengthened protective barrier, all from one simple shower swap.
Diptyque Do Son Shower Oil
Apricot and almond oil are the culprits behind the velvety-soft lather on this thing, but it’s the intoxicating scent of tuberose that will transport you straight to a sun-drenched summer’s day mid-shower.
Le Labo Shower Oil
This milky-foam cleanser is packed full of argan, sunflower and coconut oil, plus the enlivening scent of mandarin and geranium. It instantly infuses washtime with a sparkling freshness and a healthy dose of hydration.
Kiehl's Crème de Corps Smoothing Oil to Foam Body Cleanser
Let the comforting scent of vanilla and almond whisk you away from the stressors of your daily life, as this oil-to-foam body cleanser targets impurities, imparting moisture to parched limbs. The secret to this hydrating formula? Ol’ faithfuls, grapeseed and castor oil.
