Whether you’re baring skin in hope of sunnier days or just love slathering your body in natural beauty oils, this is the best body oil ever, says Healthista’s digital director and beauty columnist Yanar Alkayat
if your limbs are finally making an appearance after months under wraps then you’ll want to treat them well. Cue the best natural body oil to get them glistening for warmer days.
If you were a beauty fan in the 80s or 90s you might remember Avon Skin So Soft Dry Oil Spray which eventually earned itself a somewhat iconic status among Avon fans as well as makeup artists, beauty editors and models. It was the only body oil on the mass market that gave legs a sheen without turning them into an oil slick because of its ‘dry’ finish.
If you swear by beauty oils as much as I do you’ll know what a treat it is to have a body oil in the form of a light spray
So when Liz Earle released a dry body oil with natural credentials I obviously did a little dance. If you swear by beauty oils as much as I do – body oils, facial oils and everything oil-based in between are my go-to products always – then you’ll know what a treat of convenience it is to have a body oil in the form of a light spray. No more spillages, no more hand pouring. The formula mists out finely making light work of massaging it into skin and leaves no oil residue, only a gorgeous scent.
The main ingredients are avocado oil, cranberry oil, borage seed oil and layered up with essential oils of petigrain, lavandin and neroli. The results is an aroma-rich experience which turns the daily chore of body-moisturising into a spa-like affair.

If you’re a Liz Earle fan you’ll be familiar with its familiar aromatic blend used originally in Superskin Moisturiser and then rolled out to other products. It’s like a family who share the same parents, the scent is instantly recognisable with the aroma of a bouquet of herbs and botanicals.
This body oil is a great accessory to summer days and sandals but why let the weather dictate your beauty regime. Liz Earle Superskin Dry Oil is great whatever the weather – after all, good skin is not just for summer it’s for all year round.
All that’s missing is a travel version because I desperately want to take this away on holidays with me but I can’t imagine a tall glass jar will travel well. I’m sure I’m not alone so let’s hope the big heads at Liz Earle can hear our plea.
