From CBD oil to infusions with truffles from Italy, this editor tested and approved list will have your body glowing in no time.
Isa Lazo – Body Oil
Created by a mother and daughter duo, this clean product with wildly elegant packaging leaves your body silky and smooth while looking gorgeous on your bathroom counter.
This perfectly balanced formula includes primrose and grapefruit oil that moisturize skin splendidly. The tincture allows for you to measure appropriately, and there is a rather tight closure to ensure optimal preservation. Personally, we love it for our legs. All you need to do is apply and go.

[Comfort Zone] – Tranquillity Blend
A few weeks back, I swung by the spa at the AWAY Spa at W Hotel South Beach for a Thai Massage. The service, by Gema was outstanding. But what kept me in a state of tranquility was the oil she used which I purchased on the spot. The [Comfort Zone] Tranquillity Blend is the signature fragrance of the Italian brand (they also own Davines, my favorite shampoo brand in the market), and the bottle boasts essential oils of Cedarwood and Sweet Orange.
Harmony and peace were achieved, and I douse my body in this after the shower. A tincture comes as part of the package, but the product is so good that I skip that part and apply directly because with this baby – the more, the merrier!
Available at comfortzone.com or locally at AWAY Spa, the W Hotel South Beach. $91.
Biography – Golden Ray Glow Drops
Although the true intention of this product is for the face to glow, one day I applied some on my legs! From that moment on, it became multi-purpose, adding radiance and making my body glow on the go!
Made with French marine algae, Carrot Seed Oil and Fruit Seed Complex, all you need to do is apply a bit of this oil with a deep marigold hue for a sunlit glow. And, if you decide to use it on your face, we suggest blending it with a primer before you add your foundation.

Lake and Skye – 11 11 Oil
This beautifully packaged product is way more than just that. In fact, I bring it with me to my lymphatic drainage massages for my therapist to use. Rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidant Vitamin E, this hydrating all-over body oil naturally nourishes and soothes dry skin.
The formula also includes sweet almond oil, known to soften skin and restore protective barriers. Oh, it is also free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates and is cruelty free.

Lab to Beauty – The Fountain of Youth Body + Bath Oil
