I have been even more obsessed with body oils lately, and I think that working from home has given me a little extra time to use hydrating oils throughout the day. Recently I have been luxuriating in my three favorite vanilla scented body oils that ae utterly delicious.

LAVANILA Vanilla Bean Creamy Body Oil ($39.00 for 3.4 oz. from Sephora): This lightweight, super-hydrating creamy oil smells divine, and it delivers instant hydration without leaving behind a greasy residue. It leaves skin soft, smooth and supple and lightly fragranced. The consistency is thin, it melts into the skin immediately, and leaves behind an ethereal glow. The warm veil of vanilla bean aroma is comforting and rich, and it lingers for quite a while.

According to LAVANILA,

Patent pending natural technology spins pure Madagascar vanilla bean, argan, and coconut oils into a uniquely greaseless formula that instantly absorbs to rescue skin with intense 24-hour hydration and nourishment. With the lightweight texture of a lotion, it transforms dry, dull skin into hydrated, soft, supple skin. 

The vanilla bean has been used for years to protect, condition, and repair the skin. The essences of this plant are rich in polyketones and polyphenols that work together to deliver youthful-looking skin texture and powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. This product is free of harsh chemicals and powered by the purity of natural ingredients.

For maximum hydration use after showering and apply liberally to slightly damp clean skin.

Farmhouse Fresh skin and body care products are effective, affordable and a treat to use. Their Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil ($23.00 for 4.5 oz. from Farmhouse Fresh): with its rich, deep and creamy vanilla and bourbon aroma, is utterly delectable.

If you have ever tried other Farmhouse Fresh Body Oils, you are well aware that they are lightweight, fast-absorbing, ultra-nourishing and hydrating. This is precisely what you get with Farmhouse Fresh Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil, but there is something about this particular aroma that is so comforting and delicious.
According to Farmhouse Fresh,

Exotic in scent, color and texture, the new Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil by FarmHouse Fresh® is a subtle blend of light, botanical oils that lightly fragrance skin with Madagascar vanilla and small batch, Texas-distilled bourbon.

The soft scent of your delicious dreams! Instantly soothe your skin into splendor with this delectable Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil and its full spectrum of skin-repairing omega-3, 6 & 9 fatty acids. The soft, warm notes of Madagascar vanilla and freshly distilled small batch Texas bourbon are a luxurious and delicious treat.

Apply directly to skin as a light but deeply hydrating body oil. Vanilla Bourbon Oil includes U.S.-grown non-GMO soy which is known for its highly repairing properties for dry skin and a blend of other oils that impart wonderful benefits to skin including Grapeseed and Olive Fruit, which contain powerful antioxidants which diminish the look of the damaging effects of sun and improve skin's texture.

The Organic Pharmacy Sweet Vanilla Dry Oil ($70.00 for 3.38 oz. from Beautyhabit's Amazon StoreDermstore and The Organic Pharmacy): This is a very lightweight and fast absorbing dry oil that was conceived as a deeply nourishing conditioning and hydrating oil for the face, body and hair. It leaves behind no greasy residue, and will not transfer to clothes or linens. It harnesses the energy and potency of 7 antioxidant-rich plant oils– when combined create an ultra effective elixir for the whole body. 

I apply it to my warm, damp freshly cleansed skin and note that it immediately delivers soft and silky skin with a pronounced healthy luminosity. It provides deep hydration, and can be used alone, or in conjunction with a body lotion or cream when you desire layered protection against the elements.

When I apply this to my hair, I tend to spritz it on my damp hair as part of my nourishing, pre-styling routine, but I also like to use it as a finishing spray to dry hair as well. My hair is left frizz-free, infinitely more manageable, and it is left soft, supply and shiny.

The Organic Pharmacy Sweet Vanilla Dry Oil has an intoxicatingly beautiful warm, sweet, creamy vanilla aroma that is such a delight to the senses. 

According to The Organic Pharmacy,

Body: Mist a light veil of oil directly to damp or dry skin and use your hands to work the oil in. 

Face: Warm a small amount of oil in your hands and then massage into the skin using firm, sweeping movements across the face. Or use in addition to your cream moisturiser to give skin an extra moisturising boost. 

Hair: Post-styling, apply a spritz of oil into your hands and run lightly through the hair paying particular attention to the ends.
