We've been having a very intimate love affair with body oils of late — there's something so luxe about them. Using a rich oil after a bath or shower has that relaxing day spa vibe, not to mention the hydration qualities packed into each bottle. But the best reason to try one on for size? Financial.

But be warned, body oil is best used at night or when your skin is mostly covered by clothes — we don't want you burning in the sun! Here's five budget body oils we've tried and loved, and we think you will, too.
