Who wouldn’t want silky hair and smooth skin?
Whether you want to style your hair, finish it off with a little shine or nourish and silk-ify your legs, these miracle oils can achieve it. We know you busy Beauty Bean readers love products that are easy to use, convenient and affordable! Choose from one of our favorite all-in-one beauty oils for a product that works double duty!
Garnier Fructis Haircare Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil for Hair, Body & Face ($5.99) is a fast absorbing beauty oil that isn’t overly oily. Formulated with 3 beauty nutrient packed oils (olive, avocado and shea), Garnier Fructis’ dry oil will take dry skin or hair to supple and soft with just a few quick sprays! We like to use this oil on dry hair for extra shine and on our skin after a shower. The olive, avocado and shea oils work to nourish and replenish dry and worn out hair and skin.
If you like to use organic products, look no further than Smith Farms All Natural Skincare Honeysuckle Hair & Body Oil ($19.99). A fabulous blend of jojoba, sweet almond and sunflower oil and enriched with vitamin E and honeysuckle essential oil, this multi-use oil is rich and effective. Use as a moisturizer to heal dry skin and feet, brush through hair as an anti-frizz treatment, apply to cuticles before a manicure or add some to your next bath for a decadent experience!
L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Multi Restorative Dry Oil ($6.99) is another drug store favorite of ours. This is the perfect weapon for split ends, flyways and dry, cracked skin. We like to use this dry oil on hair after drying and styling to smooth flyways and tame frizz, and before a spray tan to create a nice even surface for color to adhere to.
For extremely dry, sensitive or wind/sun damaged skin, African Botanics Pure Marula Oil ($80) packs a serious punch. The pure marula oil is natural, cold pressed and light textured and chock full of vitamins C, E and antioxidants. With an impressive essential fatty acid profile (omega 9 and 6), this oil seriously hydrates skin and also softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the user a more youthful appearance. Use it on everything from stretch marks to scars to eczema or just as a great moisturizer! Swipe it on after a long flight to look instantly rejuvenated. Apply it to hair to add shine and eliminate frizz and protect against sun damage and other harmful environmental agents!
A beautiful fragrance and nourishing oil in one? Count us in! Caudalie Divine Oil ($49) is a high quality dry oil that moisturizes and revitalizes the face, body and hair. Formulated with grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan oil and fortified with antioxidant polyphenols, this dry oil brings a light, floral fragrance with its many other skin and hair enhancing benefits. The best part is, for each bottle of Caudalie Divine Oil sold, Caudilie will plant one tree for the Coeur de Fôret Association.
