Not many of us use shower oils, but perhaps we should. Shower oils are known to give you a gentle, moisturizing cleanse that will not strip your skin of natural oils.

For those of you who do not want to apply a body lotion, shower oils are a great way to ensure that your skin stays soft and smooth. It is also recommended for those with dry skin, especially if you like having hot showers, which can cause further dryness to your skin.
