For a long time, Augustinus Bader had just two products – The Cream and The Rich Cream (I LOVE both) and now they are expanding their offering rapidly! Here’s the lowdown on the new Augustinus Bader The Body Oil.
I have been through a tub of The Body Cream* and absolutely loved it. It very quickly improved the texture and tone of my skin in a way that I have seen very few body products do. So I was super excited to try out the new Body Oil.

Augustinus Baders’s TFC8® Complex & Key Ingredients
Just in case you aren’t familiar with the AB range, I thought I’d recap on the all important TFC8® complex. This is an exclusive complex of amino acids, high-grade vitamins, and synthesised molecules that are naturally found in the skin.
The blend encourages the skin to move into its best state to allow for repair and renewal while the ingredients get to work.
- Olive Fruit Oil: healthy fat-saturated, acid rich fruit oil has a high content of vitamins A, B, C and E, to nourish, soften and smooth the skin
- Argan Oil: cold-pressed seed oil is rich in essential fatty compounds including linoleic acid (omega-6), to help restore the skin’s hydrolipidic film and prevent trans-epidermal water loss
- Squalene: sugarcane-derived oil is a powerful humectant that helps to restore suppleness and elasticity to the skin
- Vitamin E (Tocopherol): conditioning vitamin that supports barrier function in order to optimise hydration levels in the skin and
protect against external stressors.
My Review of Augustinus Bader The Body Oil
I couldn’t wait to start using this. Body care has become quite the obsession for me since lockdown. I have seen how using the right products can really deliver results. I recently a got a Peloton which has helped tone up my muscles, but I’ve realised that the skin doesn’t respond quite so easily!
This oil is absolutely beautiful to use, and it imparts the skin with a lovely perfecting glow. I like to apply it on to slightly wet skin after the shower and its silky, luxurious texture absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it feeling hydrated but not greasy or sticky. It is rich yet lightweight.
I have been using Augustinus Bader The Body Oil for a few days and it’s given my skin lovely supple, smooth feeling. I’m a serial fake tanner which can take its toll on my hydration levels, but this does the trick to prevent further moisture-loss and make my skin feel more elastic. It’s absolutely brilliant after shaving to sooth and take down any irritation too.
Apparently long term use will improve the appearance of stretch marks. I haven’t used it for long enough to comment, but I know that the tub of The Body Cream* was absolutely brilliant on that count. These two would make a serious power couple if you were a fan of layer a rich body butter over an oil.
Also, I used it straight after scrubbing with my Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Body Scrub and had fantastic results.
Where to buy it
Right now it’s available exclusively at Augustinus Bader* for £75 for 100ml. As it’s pricey, I’d recommend concentrating on the areas that need the most attention. I tend to work most on my bottom, stomach, thighs and upper arms.
You can shop the rest of the AB range at Selfridges*. Out of The Cream and The Rich Cream, I’m a ‘Rich’ girl, but they are both amazing.
