Emma Cook reviews the best treatment oils

Orange blossom bath oil
£22, by Ortiga, 020-7730 2826

Luxurious bath oil from Sicily with a highly aromatic scent containing neroli and citrus. Gorgeous, woody aroma that leaves your skin feeling both pampered and moisturised. Guilty indulgence or great gift.
4 stars

Oriental body glistening oil
£8, by Champneys, from Sainsbury's, 0800 636262

A dry body oil with jojoba, sesame and rice bran oils. Leaves skin sleek, but I wasn't too keen on the watery consistency - this made it tricky to apply. But it has a nice aroma and gives a subtle, bronze sheen.
3 stars

Organic Chinese geranium anti-ageing night oil
£21.99, by Skincare CafĂ©, 0870 443 2744

Organic essential oils that promise to help repair skin as you sleep. Feels comforting and nourishing. Best for night use, so you don't leave the house with a shiny face. Easily absorbed and not too greasy.
3 stars

Moor lavender body oil
£18, by Dr Hauschka, 01386 792642

My favourite. Looks like a robust French dressing - a custard-creamy consistency with a tangy aroma of essential oils and subtle overtones of lavender. Blends in quickly and leaves you wanting to apply more. Definitely moor-ish.
5 stars Nail treatment oil
£10, by Paul & Joe, from Fenwicks, 020-76299161

The pretty deco packaging does it every time, regardless of whether or not you believe a light oil can rid your nails of ridges and grooves. This gave my nails a glossy sheen; good as a prep before applying varnish.
4 stars

Rose facial oil
£18, by Neal's Yard, nealsyardremedies.com

Calming and moisturising oil with rose wax, geranium and grapeseed. I wouldn't say it helped to reduce any of my fine lines, as it promises to do, but it does feel extremely soothing. And it's perfect for drier skin.
4 stars
