OIL on WATER

Bath oils are a wonderful idea – soft and silky to loll in and gentle on the skin…but what a pain some of them can be when you want to get out of the bath and end up slithering around like an eel…let alone trying to remove the ring they leave around the tub.

Welcome to the luxurious world of DIPTYCH, the makers of everybody’s favourite candles, who have just launched their bath and body range with super-rich body butter, creamy body wash and, best of all, their Huiles Precieuses. This is an amalgam of organic sweet almond oil mixed with macadamia nut and argan for the finest oil known to skin.

Smooth a few drops over your driest limbs or, best of all, a tiny amount in the bath, which anoints your body, not the bath. Not cheap at
