I've always had dry skin. Like, really dry.
While this practice has kept the extreme dryness under control, my skin has always remained a little bit … lacklustre. In the end, I simply chose my creams by their scent. I mean, who doesn't love to smell good?
And then I discovered body oils.
It happened by accident, after I received a sample in a subscription beauty box (turns out they are effective at selling you new products after all!).

I used it for one week, and I was hooked. Since then, I've tried a range of different oils and my skin has noticeably transformed. It is significantly softer and smoother - and feels amazing.
I still use creams in the morning, opting for oils at night after a shower, and it is THE BEST way to wind down after a busy day.
So I'm not going to gatekeep any longer. Here are five of my favourites.
