Shower oils might once have seemed like an obscurity, but products from buzzy brands like Glossier are quickly bringing them to the forefront — and for good reason. Shower oils are easy to use and they're a great way to cleanse your skin without drying it out (no mean feat when you're combatting dry winter skin). And though you might think that they'd leave a residue, have no fear: These best shower oils all produce a gentle lather that rinses off quite easily.
Oh, and perhaps best of all? They tend to come in some downright intoxicating aromas — many of your favorite fragrance brands from Diptyque to Jo Malone have their own takes on the product. Get ready to find the shower oil of your dreams with our 15 favorites ahead.

When it comes to fragrance, it doesn't get much more delectable than Lalicious' take on shower oil — especially if you go with the Brown Sugar Vanilla variety. It's a true treat for the senses, and here's a bonus: It also doubles as the most relaxing bubble bath ever.
After making a major splash with its inclusive (and cheeky) ad campaign, it's safe to say that Glossier's first body wash truly lives up to the hype. It comes in a convenient (and let's be honest, Instagram-worthy) pump container and the emollient formula sudses up to a satisfyingly creamy foam. A must, especially for Glossier devotees.

Thanks to the almond oil in the formula, this shower oil smells like a fancy French macaron, which automatically makes it a winner in our book. The texture is quite thick and emollient and the gentle light foam is so soothing. There's a reason why this is a cult favorite.
