Winter is an especially good time to get on board the dry body oil bandwagon. And we've found the perfect one for you to try: The Body Shop Beautifying Oil. Here's why. It provides an instant dose of non-sticky, non-greasy hydration that really lasts against that Winter bite. It can be used (dry) on the body, face and hair. No, really. It's available in six fragrances: coconut (by far our favourite), shea, moringa, olive, strawberry and mango. And it has a heart. The marula nut oil — which is used along with kukui nut oil and sweet almond oil to banish dry scaliness and restore sexy smoothness — is sourced from the Eudafano Women's Co-Operative which has helped 5,000 women to set up their own factory, giving them entrepreneurial skills and allowing them to earn a fair living and have a higher status within the community. With 99.6 percent natural ingredients, it's one of the purest body oils on the market and definitely one of our new favourites.
The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil ($25.95) is available to buy online now.
