6 Best Body Oils For Summer

Season change is also a good time to re-evaluate what you are using on your body. For me, that means bye-bye rich moisturizers and hello weightless body oils!

There is nothing like feeling the first warm rays of sun in the summer. They entice you to pull out your bathing suits and maxi dresses, and embrace an au naturel freedom in your skin care and make-up routines.
Season change is also a good time to re-evaluate what you are using on your body. For me, that means bye-bye rich moisturizers and hello weightless body oils!
As you begin to bare your shoulders, knees and possibly a little thigh, let BWB help your skin shimmer, shine and feel supple with our favorite body oils for summer.

Aurelia
Firm & Revitalise
Dry Body Oil

It embraces you with the lovely scent of neroli that lingers ever so slightly. It absorbs immediately, leaving your skin soft all day.
Some of the interesting ingredients are: Mongongo Oil, which comes from Africa and is high in vitamin E and linoleic acid. It also forms a protective film on the skin protecting from UV light. Peach Kernal Oil is used to aid in skin elasticity.
Add in orange flower and orange peel oils and a bit of watermelon seed oil and you can begin to understand why Aurelia is so special.

…My favorite time to use this body oil is after I have worked out and showered. It feels soothing and firming at the same time.

Votre Vu
Amour D’ore

Les Vitamines Pour Vous

This oil is great for your hair, face & body. It smells sexy and leaves a soft shimmer on your skin. Votre Vu incorporates: Corn oil, grapes seed oil and apricot kernal oil to improve the texture of the skin. Caprylic triglycerides and sweet almond oil hydrate the skin and carrot Oil adds vitamin A.

…I love to apply this after I have come out of the sun.

Nuxe
Huile Prodigieuse

It has a cornucopia of ingredients that do not disappoint. Take a breath because I want you to absorb the magnitude…Macadamia seed oil, sweet almond oil, hazel seed oil, camellia seed oil, olive fruit oil & sunflower oil. Also included is tomato fruit extract and rosemary extract. The benefits range from anti-oxidants to collagen production and it is ideal for all skin types.

…I feel luxurious using this product and my skin feels amazing…I must admit I would use this for the soft, enticing scent alone.

Caudalie
Contouring Concentrate

It is a must have to help improve the appearance of your thighs, hips and buttocks…I have also used it on my arms and stomach.

I absolutely feel a tingling sensation every time I apply it and swear the area behind my thighs is smoother than ever.

This oil relies on Cupressus Sempervirens oil, which comes from the Cypress Tree and is known to improve cellulite, tighten skin and improve circulation. Caudalie also uses Cymbopogon Flexuosus oil, which is a form of lemongrass that is used to tone muscles.

… Call me crazy, but I absolutely feel a tingling sensation every time I apply it and swear the area behind my thighs is smoother than ever.

Natura Bisse
C+C Dry Oil

I must begin with the fact that this oil has an SPF 30. That alone makes the product a favorite of mine and the genius does not stop there. Pro-vitamin D and omega’s 3 & 6 fatty acids are added to improve the condition of the skin.  You also get a huge vitamin blast from mandarin orange oil, orange oil and carrot seed oil.
Natura Bisse’s application is invisibly light and left my skin soft and shimmery. It’s a great product to throw in your bag and reapply during your fun days in the sun.

Ren
Moroccan Rose Gold Glow
Perfect Dry Oil 

It is romance for your body.  The subtle aroma of roses is enticing and my skin is left with the perfect sheen. Ren uses: Argania spinosa oil, which is high in fatty acids and helps the skin’s elasticity. Macrocarpon cranberry seed oil for it’s healing properties and polyphenols. Graveolens flower oil to balance the skin and let us not forget, rosa canina fruit oil, linoleic acid and liquid wax from vegetable ester.

…I enjoy applying this in the evenings before I go out…or even when I stay in.

Let your body feel the love of any of these products and your skin will make you proud throughout the summer months.

Sending glowing wishes,
Vanessa

Bonus Body Oil
…For our BWB readers who love Rahua hair products, I suggest you explore the body line. Their Body Amazon Oil is packed with omegas 9 & 3 and caprylic triglycerides derived from coconuts. The addition of fruit extracts, rose and vanilla is lovely and will leave your skin feeling fresh all day.
