Bio-Oil has quite a cult following, and it should come as no surprise— it works in so many ways for so many people. For some, it’s the product to turn to for soothing skin that has been burned by the sun, or the must-have for smoothing away stretch marks. For others, it is a moisturizing night serum for the face or a “drink” for their parched hair. In addition to those many uses, we recommend using it to give your legs a silky sheen for a night out— in your favorite dress, of course— or try adding a few drops to your bath for a relaxing, at-home treat. from $11.99, drugstore.com

Summer is the season to show off healthy, glowing skin. We recommend Suki’s Delicate Hydrating Oil to be used over your entire body after bathing or as an enriching bath oil to enhance skin’s luminosity and hydration. Nourishing benefits from grapeseed, sunflower and apricot kernel oils, while extracts of chamomile, lavender and comfrey aid in soothing and calming the skin. Suitable for all skin types. $24, beautorium.com
Bliss has created the ultimate lightweight moisture-giver in the new Lemon + Sage Body Butter Lite. Much like its nourishing older sister, Body Butter, the botanically-based moisturizing ingredients and antioxidant vitamins in Lite condition skin like, well…butter. It won’t, however, leave you with the extra-thick— and sometimes greasy— finish. Body Butter Lite is perfect for creating a more dewy finish on the skin, absorbs quickly, and leaves skin weightlessly hydrated. $29, blissworld.com
With the weather heating up, we feel it’s essential to have the best protection possible. There is nothing worse than catching a whiff of your own underarm umm…odor, and having to worry throughout the day whether or not others smell it, too (so embarrassing!).
The following is a list of products we have tried and tested for you, and trust us, they really work.
Mitchum for Women Clear Gel Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant is certainly the best of the best. We were most impressed with how effective it is. The alcohol-free formula won’t sting your underarms, the clear finish ensures you won’t leave any trace on your clothes and of course, you can be confident all day. $4.99, drugstore.com
Kiehl’s Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant comes in a lotion form, but never left us feeling sticky. This isn’t irritating, leaves our skin feeling smooth, and keeps us dry and smelling fresh all day long. Our biggest tip is to be sure to let it dry completely before getting dressed, and once it does, it stays put. $11.50, nordstrom.com
Degree Woman Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant is applied at night to give the best odor and wetness fighting protection. We love this, especially when we have early morning workouts planned— no need for our groggy selves to remember to do anything but get dressed. $6.99, drugstore.com
Secret Flawless Invisible Solid provides us with a feminine scent that that goes on light and softens our skin, thanks to Olay conditioners, but works to keep the wetness at bay. We love that this too goes on clear, and leaves us feeling confident enough to brave the hottest weather. $5.49, drugstore.com
Adidas Women Cotton Tech Aluminium Free Deodorant is amazing if you are desiring an aluminum-free anti-perspirant/deodorant that actually works. We found this product kept us dry and odor free all day, has a fresh, clean scent and appealed to our health-conscious side. $3.75, amazon.com
