Do you like body oils??

I have been tempted to try one, feel like lotion just isn't giving me the moisture and softness i am wanting

  • My favorites are Alba Organic's kukui nut oil, KleanSpa's essential treatment oils, and Bubble & Bee's body butta which is just solid oils.

  • this is gonna sound funny but my hubby rubs lube on my back and it feels amazing. Not exactly what it was intended for but it works great b/c he says lotion just tends to build up and it feels like i have a inch on lotion on there and everything else we have tried breaks me out since i have sensitive skin. we use KY touch massage.

  • That's almost all I use anymore. I have really dry skin, and most lotions just don't cut it. I've found that oils will better absorb into my skin where some lotions just sit on top of it, and it's easier to find body oils without the nasty ingredients like parabens.

  • I don't use lotion or body oils. Both tend to contain rather nasty ingredients - like petroleum. Through the winter, when my skin gets dry, I use Almond Oil. Works great to keep my skin soft and it doesn't have all the extra crap in it.

  • I like body lotions better but when I do use oils, I use them immediately after a shower. I don't like getting on my clothes.
