Use this lightweight oil that is packed with botanical oils like sandalwood, rose, grapefruit and neroli to help soothe irritation and heal cracked heels. And since the Uma estate are suppliers to luxury brands like Tom Ford and Estee Lauder, you can already tell that you’re getting a bottle of goodness.
Kora Organics Noni Radiant Eye Oil, $57 from Sephora
Sure, eye creams are a dime in a dozen, but eye oils are the new kid on the block. And this eye treatment – that’s from the beauty brand that ex-Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr founded -smoothes, tones and brightens the delicate undereye area. Plus, its roller applicator allows for easy application and doubles as a massaging tool.
Rodin Luxury Lip & Cheek Oil in Red Hedy, US$35 (S$47) from Net-a-Porter
We can all appreciate a two-in-one product that can be thrown in our purses for on-the-go touch-ups. Dab some of this vibrant red oil onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it out for a subtle flush. Alternatively, achieve the coveted gradient lip look when you concentrate this at the centre of your lips.
Rodin Luxury Face Oil Stick in Lavender Absolute, US$80.50 (S$109) from Net-a-Porter
Face oils are no doubt nourishing but might get messy when they leak, which is why this face oil stick that’s packed with a blend of 11 natural oils is such a lifesaver. The cherry on top? It’s not just a moisturiser. It can also be used to treat dry cuticles or tame fly-aways and unruly brows.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in 01 Honey, $36
If your usual lip balm that comes in a stick isn’t heavy duty enough for you, consider using this hydrating lip oil in its place. This one’s infused with hazelnut extract that plumps and softens the lips while leaving it with a shiny, non-sticky finish complete with a subtle sweet taste.
Fur Fur Oil, $62 from Revolve
This is not just any hair oil. It’s made for a body part that we often neglect – our lady parts. Yes, you read that right. Our lady bits need to be shown some love too. This fur oil is a unique blend of lightweight oils such as grapeseed, tea tree and jojoba oils that are designed to soften pubic hair and clear pores for fewer ingrown hairs. For optimum effect, use it in between waxing or laser removal sessions.
Ouai Haircare Rose Hair and Body Oil, US$35 (S$47) from Net-a-Porter
Infused with absinthium, shea, and rosehip oils, this multi-tasking formula absorbs quickly and locks in moisture to repair the damage caused by environmental toxins. Frizzy-haired girls pay attention because this works on both damp and dry hair to tame frizz. It’s also scented with the brand’s iconic Melrose Place fragrance, so you can skip the perfume too.
Agent Nateur holi(skin) Shave Oil, US$43.72 (S$59.40) from Net-a-Porter
After hearing that fans swore by her brand’s face oil for a smooth shave, founder Jena Covello came up with a new formula made especially with hair removal in mind. It delivers the same soothing benefits, plus healing calendula and chamomile extracts to reduce redness and minimise irritation. You won’t have an overpowering aftershave scent with this, because what lingers behind is the light smell of calming grapefruit and sandalwood.
Strangelove NYC Perfume Oil Necklace in silencethesea, US$205.94 (S$280) from Net-a-Porter
Is it a dainty gold necklace? Or is it a travel-sized perfume? This one’s both. It plays on your natural body heat to activate and enhance the scent of the perfume. The aromatic scent opens with notes of Asian lime before softly blending into a bouquet of natural narcissus, tuberose and jasmine. Simply unscrew the bottle from necklace and dab onto pulse points for mid-day pick-me-ups.
Christian Louboutin Beauty Tornade Blonde Perfume Oil, US$283.88 (S$385) from Net-a-Porter
“Feminine and potent, animalistic yet floral,” is how Christian Louboutin describes his signature Tornade Blonde scent. Its a pleasing blend of fresh rhubarb top notes with a base of sweet Bulgarian rose and citrus orange flower petals. Either mix it with your go-to unscented lotion to transform it into a hydrating lotion that lasts all day, or warm one drop in your hands before smoothing it through hair.
