Cold weather has a way of zapping the moisture out of your skin like no other. If lotions and creams just aren’t getting the job done for you this winter, it might be time to try a body oil.

Now, before you think of a big, greasy mess in your bathroom, stop right there. The best body oils offer moisture and hydration with little to no icky residue or grease factor. On the contrary, apply a really good body oil right when you step out of the shower, and it will absorb quickly and keep your skin soft and smooth for hours.

If you’re new to body oils, you should know that they’re not all the same. Rather than just buying the cheapest one you can find or whatever is stocked at your local drugstore, start with the editor-approved picks below. I tested all three of these body oils, and I can attest they will make your skin look and feel phenomenal. Bonus: They’re all from woman-owned brands!

I adore By Rosie Jane’s clean fragrances, so it’s no surprise that I fell in love with the brand’s Everyday Body Oil. It’s made with coconut oil, olive oil and rose hip seed oil that goes on smooth and sinks into your skin really quickly. The Everyday Body Oil is available in a bunch of By Rosie Jane’s most popular scents, including James and Leila Lou.
