Shave and moisturize your legs at the same time with Somerset's shaving oil.
Somerset shaving oil
Even though your legs may not have seen the light of day since September, there's no reason not to give them a little TLC. Soap can irritate dry winter skin, causing flakiness and itching. Somerset's Shaving Oil for Women is not only moisturizing for a slick shave, but it's also a wise buy since only 2 to 3 drops are needed per leg ($6.99, somersetusa.com).
Shu Uemura’s oil pearls
A longtime favorite of famed Hollywood hairstylist Chris McMillian, Shu Uemura's Essence Absolute treatment has been reinvented with the addition of camellia oil pearls. A favorite among beauty editors for its "intoxicating" scent, the nourishing oil is the perfect way to prep and protect your strands from your blow dry and the cold, dry air ($68, shuuemura.com).
