With the rich oils of avocado, wheat germ and almond, this vitamin E enriched cream is dense enough to feel soothing but light enough to absorb quickly into the skin.
The added herbal extracts soothe tired skin, whilst the oils do their work to nourish the skin through the night. It leaves a comforting, rich herbal scent on skin, which should be cleaned and prepped before application.
Ideal for dry skin, this light, gentle oil is the perfect addition to your skincare routine if your day moisturiser needs a little more help in the colder months. With a pleasant aromatic scent, this oil glides on easily and absorbs very quickly.
The pipette delivers only a small amount, exactly enough for covering your face and neck. At a very reasonable price, and one of the Body Shop’s most popular ranges for over 35 years, this oil is a beauty bargain buy.
Even those who are not hand cream lovers will be converted by this indulgent smelling, light cream.
Despite being very rich and instantly adding softness and moisture, this cream sinks into hands easily and doesn’t leave a greasy residue.
Although at the higher end of the price point scale, this Jo Malone hand cream is decent value as you only need a very small amount. Try using it at bed time for super soft, hydrated hands.
Tired and thirsty hands will love this nourishing oil. A thin, light oil designed to enrich the nail and the cuticle, this pen distributes just the right amount and is easy to control.
Use it as a treatment before a manicure or nail varnish, or just as a way to give your naked nails a healthy, soft sheen.
With a hint of fresh mint, this oil-free, almost gel-like lotion PH balances as well as hydrates.
Almost instant absorption makes it ideal for busy mornings when you just want to get on with applying foundation.
As well as being good for even the most sensitive skin type, it soothes irritation with a combination of camomile, vitamins E and B. Its light texture is also ideal for oily skins, although all skin types will find this an enriching and softening product.
Containing sweet almond and vitamin E, (as well as the very obvious lemon), this pure oil leaves skin very hydrated, but does leave a slight residue on the skin for a short time. Ideal for using in or after a bath when you have time to wrap up in a cosy towel and let it do its work.
Ideal for those who find waxing of shaving irritating, this gentle liquid deodorant is made up of Icelandic and Irish moss, soothing Aloe Vera, sunflower oil and of course vitamin E.
Neutralising, rather than covering up odours, it is intensely hydrating and antibacterial. At £5.19 it’s not the cheapest deodorant in the market, but its green credentials and effectiveness are worth that little bit extra.
A staple in bathroom cabinets for many years, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is a nourishing, thick and comforting butter for the body.
It hydrates even the most weather beaten limbs, and keeps its distinctive scent long after it has been applied. It can even improve the look of stretch marks and scars.
It does take a little while to soak into the skin though, so leave it a little time before dressing. Great value.
Made from natural wheat germ oil, this cream has a very natural smell, so it’s not for anyone who wants a light, perhaps floral, fragrance.
Very thick, it needs a vigorous rubbing in to aid absorption, but it’s designed for trouble spots such as knees, elbows and parched legs, and is best applied to slightly damp skin.
The packaging is practical and stores on its lid so you get every last drop out of the tube. As usual with Jason products, this cream is very effective, completely eco friendly and natural at an incredibly reasonable price point.
This oil has an exceptionally high concentration of Vitamin E, making it very effective on scar tissue or excessively dry skin.
However, it is more of a gel than an oil, and remains sticky long after application. Better used on a localised area of the skin, rather than say to moisturise legs and arms, it takes a long time to absorb and you’d need to wait a while before dressing post application if used as a body moisturiser.
Mixing it with another cream can make it more application friendly. On the side, it has a light and citrusy scent.
