Coconut body oil Extra Virgin, You Need It

Editor-in-chief’s choice BeautyHack Karina Andreeva

When you open the can, you see a product similar to rice pudding – an airy texture, a vanilla-coconut aroma. When applied, the body is covered with a film that seems very oily, but when rubbed in, it disappears once or twice. I have very dry skin in the elbow area, but in a couple of days of use, the product heroically coped with this problem, as well as peeling and other “troubles”. Claimed as 100% Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil. Judging by the natural smell and consistency, it is so. It is not enough to make a great company on your travels – feel free to take it to the beach and apply it on your hair, face and body!

Relaxing massage oil “Aromacology”, LOccitane

Choosing a project manager BeautyHack Anastasia Lyagushkina

The aroma of the oil reminded me of a blooming field with sunflowers, after a working day I just want to breathe it in order to relax as soon as possible. The product contains a complex of lavender, tea tree and geranium essential oils that help relieve stress, irritability and tune in to a positive mood. Among the ingredients were found grape seed, apricot and sea buckthorn oils – they nourish the skin and make it soft.

I do not use Aromacology as a massage oil as often as I would like. But I happily add it to the bath and apply it to the body after the shower, inhaling the magical aroma that allows you to quickly fall asleep.

Dry oil Huile Prodigieuse, Nuxe

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Natalia Kapitsa

With Nuxe all-purpose body, face and hair oil, we had love from the first drop. First I tried to apply it on my face – the product immediately justified its title “dry”, instantly absorbed. I have oily skin. But the oil did not leave a shine, providing a matte, velvety effect. To make the hair soft and smooth, just one drop of the product rubbed between your palms is enough. Even if you applied more than necessary, it is not scary. In the composition of vitamin E, St. John’s wort, borage, almond, macadamia, hazelnut and camellia oils: they improve the structure of the hair. I didn’t apply it to the body, but I added a few drops of the product to the shower gel and balm – the effect exceeded all expectations: the skin became soft, small peeling disappeared after the third application.

Birch anti-cellulite oil, Weleda

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Julia Kozoliy

For a visible effect, Weleda recommends using this oil twice a day for a month. I had two weeks to test, but during this time the results appeared. I massaged the oil in the morning and evening after showering. The main component is birch leaf extract. It stimulates lymphatic drainage, improves metabolism and removes toxins. I do not believe in complete elimination of cellulite without sports and proper nutrition. But on its own, regular massage made the skin smoother and more hydrated.

The oil also has a very pleasant citrus scent. The composition contains an extract of butcher’s roots, rosemary and lemon leaves, which leave that very subtle scent on the skin.

Dry body oil Nourishing Dry Body Oil Creme de Corps, Kiehl’s

Choice of BeautyHack columnist Ksenia Wagner

The coolest thing is the smell: there is vanilla, and almonds, and sweets, as in that joke, “everything is so tasty” (who knows how a body cream from this series smells, he is in the subject). Next on the plus side is the spray dispenser, which makes it easy to vary the degree of your oiliness. Naturally, I doused myself like a monkey, so it was absorbed for about 20 minutes, and still I had to get wet with a towel in front of a white shirt. If you don’t go crazy, then in 5-7 minutes you can get dressed. Most turtles can combine the oil with other make-ups: it can be applied under body creams for maximum nutrition. In the composition of squalane and a bunch of different oils.

Coconut oil Ligne StBarth

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Natalia Kapitsa

Brand Ligne St. Barth is a line of face, body and hair care products from Birgit and Arvi Brin, which has been produced since 1983 on the island of Saint Barthélemy in the Caribbean. The history of the brand began quietly and modestly from a small shop near the island airport. But products based on seaweed, exotic fruits, flowers and herbs were in such demand that ten years later, the most prestigious spa hotels in the United States and Europe were already operating on them.

Coconut oil and avocado oil Ligne St. Barth is the brand’s signature.

At temperatures below 25 ° C, it hardens and turns white – this is the main sign of high quality and a guarantee that the product has not been hydrogenated and does not contain additives (eg stabilizers) and preservatives.

Only the lazy does not know about the benefits of coconut oil: it tidies up damaged hair, nourishes dry skin and soothes reactive skin, has an incredible aromatherapy effect. Coconut oil Ligne St. Barth has a soft, creamy aroma – you will smell like freshly made pancakes.

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Yulia Kozoliy

In a beautiful blue bottle (it seems that the Genie is about to jump out of it) is a powerful weapon that inflicts precise blows on cellulite. The composition contains essential oils of lemon and juniper, extracts of buckthorn and fennel, – together they make the skin more elastic and remove toxins. After two weeks of use, the skin noticeably tightened – I applied oil to problem areas after a shower. By the way, the product is an excellent alternative to massage oil. It has a lymphatic drainage effect, makes the skin smooth and silky and smells very appetizing of lemon marmalade.

Slimming concentrate Contouring Concentrate, Caudalie

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Yulia Kozoliy

The best you can get from using this oil is a 3.8cm reduction in thigh size after 28 days. This was exactly the result of some of the 18 volunteers who participated in the Caudalie Concentrate Test. I have been using the oil for three weeks, I cannot say that the waist or hips have become thinner, but the skin is definitely toned, elasticity and smoothness have appeared. All three weeks I adhered to this scheme: before the shower, I did a dry massage with a double-sided brush (the most common one from the supermarket), and then applied oil on wet skin with massage movements, driving it in until it was completely absorbed. The bottle has a measuring ruler with 30 marks. One serving – one mark. If you are using a similar tool for the first time, see the instructions for how to apply it – in a circular motion on the hips, abdomen, chest and arms.

The product contains essential oils of grape seeds, mint, pine, lemon, rosemary leaves. But when I use it, I smell the pungent smell of sunflower oil – this is the only nuance that can confuse you. Do not be afraid to use the product shortly before leaving the house – it is quickly absorbed and the scent will definitely not stay with you all day.

Almond softening body oil, LOccitane

Selecting an editorial assistant BeautyHack Arina Zarudko

I am ready to admit my love for almond oil forever. I apply it to my hair, body and massage my face. It perfectly nourishes, softens and tones the skin.

L’Occitane Body Oil is incredibly aromatic and effective. Once – the skin is moisturized, twice – it has become soft as velvet, three – smooth as silk.

I apply the product with massage movements (the format with the dispenser will not allow me to overdo it), and after three minutes a miracle happens! Despite its dense texture, the oil is absorbed rather quickly and leaves an incredible almond scent on the skin that lasts for a long time. For me, this tool is from the category of those that I buy again and again.

Oil for body and hair Huile Mirific Nourishing Dry Oil for Body & Hair, Guinot

Editor’s Choice BeautyHack Julia Kozoliy

There are several hair and body oils in the world that absolutely all beauty lovers hunt for, and Guinot is among them. Firstly, it’s just some kind of luxury: a glass bottle, a tart aldehyde aroma, as if it comes from the 80s, a viscous texture that does not spread on the body (after all, a product in a spray format), but does not leave a greasy feeling … And secondly, all Guinot oils are extremely powerful. The main components of this product are passionflower oil (nourishes and increases the elasticity of the skin), vitamins F and E. I prefer to apply oil to the body, and use specialized products for the hair (they are thin, therefore they react specifically to such treatments), but in this case I make an exception : Spread a pea of ​​oil on the tips for shine and aroma.

Firming body oil Body Strategist Oil, [comfort zone]

The choice of the founder of BeautyHack Ekaterina Domankova

The best part about this product is the loose, light texture. It spreads well on the skin and is quickly absorbed without spreading during application. The oil has a neutral aroma – will appeal to those who do not like the smell of care products to remain even on bed linen. I noticed that it is great to do procedures with him – due to the moderate viscosity of the oil, it is convenient to work out local zones. In the composition of almond oil, tamanu and castor oil – all of natural origin!

Hair and body oil Cote DAzur Luminous Hair&Body Oil, Oribe

Editor-in-chief’s choice BeautyHack Karina Andreeva

The American brand Oribe was founded by the legendary hairdresser Orbe Canales, who successfully worked in the fashion industry for more than 30 years and, unfortunately, passed away last December. The brand’s products include natural ingredients that are grown and harvested around the world.

Cote D’Azur Luminous Hair & Body Oil was originally purchased for hair, but in the end it worked perfectly for the body as well. My problem area is the skin on the elbows (very dry). In a couple of days, the oil revived her, making her smooth and soft. The spray format is very convenient to use: a couple of “zips” and you will quickly moisturize your skin. I rub in with massage movements after a shower – the product is well absorbed, does not leave a greasy sticky film and perfectly protects the skin in the cold season. It contains bergamot, white jasmine and sandalwood. The floral scent lasts up to five hours on the skin and hair, so it can become a worthy competitor to your perfume. A separate plus is the insanely beautiful glass packaging in the Oribe style.
