I have to admit that I love bathing products… soaps, body shampoos and bath oils. I’m always amazed when someone says that they are not really bothered about what product they use, as long as it does the job. I’ve tried a fair few body washes and I know for sure that they are not all created equal, some are lush and beautifully scented while others appear to be little more than washing up liquid in pretty packaging. The other thing is that I love along with a gorgeous body wash is when there is a matching body lotion or oil to go with it, perfect for those who like fragrance layering or just enjoy keeping their body care in the same family.

There are lots of dynamic body wash and matching moisturiser duos out there so to keep things simple here are 3 really nice choices.

Kiehls Smoothing Oil to Foam Body Cleanser

This is a lovely body wash for all skins, but the oil format is a special treat for drier skin types. This contains a blend of skin loving oils including castor seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, rice bran oil and sunflower oil. It also has a lovely scent of almond and vanilla. It leaves your skin, soft smooth and nourished.

Kiehls Nourishing Dry Body Oil

I’m loving this dry oil spray which is the perfect compliment to the body wash. This dry oil contains some fab skin friendly ingredients like grape seed oil and Uber moisturiser Squalane (see our Squalane post…) smells of a blend of vanilla and almond.

Nuxe Precious Scented Shower Oil

Again, this is perfect for all skin types, but dry skin types will appreciate the oil format. This golden liquid smells gorgeous and is scented with Orange blossom, magnolia, vanilla which is the signature fragrance of the famous Huile Prodigieuse. It’s base is sweet almond oil and it leaves your skin smooth and soft. This is sulphate and paraben free.
