There is nothing more decadent and indulgent than hydrating and caring for skin with body oil. This liquid gold is usually packed with essential oils and natural ingredients and is absorbed much quicker than a lotion and skin-rich nutrients can repair and soothe skin far more easily. Body oil can also be used on it’s own, in the shower or mixed in with other products such as face creams or hair treatments. It is an amazing and effective product that will leave you feeling like a golden goddess. Ultimate luxury.
