My latest beauty must-have are these gorgeous, dry Body Oils by Korres, £24, which are practical and pretty in equal amounts.
Just launched by the Greek brand, the anti-ageing Body Oil, which has 99,3% natural ingredients, are perfect for deep moisturising – and – this I love – for those in a rush. Spritz on, and the dry oil sinks in immediately, leaving skin with a soft sheen (but not oily). In a few seconds, you have a moisturised bod without all the palaver of creaming the skin and waiting for it to sink in. Of course, there is a time and place for pampering, but these have been my go-to for days when I need to get up and go. A few spritzes along limbs and across the body after a shower, and the oil does the rest of the work. Genius.
Best of all, are the two scents available. Water Lily Blossom is a fresh, delicate scent with watery-floral notes while Santorini Vine is a fuller, fruity fragrance reminiscent of blossoming Greek vineyards. These are like summer-time in a bottle and will definitely be perfect for packing for my next trip – ideal for re-moisturising after days in the sun.
The oils contain Alaria Esculenta extract, a natural active against oxidation and ageing. Rich in shea butter, natural almond and apricot oils, the formulas improve skin elasticity, while having moisturising, nourishing and antioxidant properties to help fight premature skin ageing.
