Bregenzerwald is a mountainous area in Austria and residential to Susanne Kaufmann the place she runs her namesake wellness mecca. Having spent a couple of days at Resort Put up in Bezau in 2019, I can guarantee you, the native attraction is cozy but posh. I liked that snowy week. Despite the grey slush within the streets, I discovered myself respiration deeply. The air felt so clear, pure, and energizing. I didn’t even must step foot within the forest to expertise nature’s restorative magic. A couple of remedies on the lodge spa didn’t damage, both! With each whiff of this restricted version physique oil, I’m transported again.
What makes this physique oil particular?
The brand new Bregenzerwald Physique Oil blends the world of physique care and private perfume like no different product I’ve tried of the various which have tried.

It’s normally solely out of necessity when my pores and skin will get dry and itchy. Now, it’s a activity I sit up for every day.
Elements and perfume notes
Susanne Kaufmann has perfected bathtub oils. Her Bathtub Oil For The Senses is among the many finest I’ve tried. That is coming from somebody who takes lots of baths. The brand new Bregenzerwald Physique Oil is a leave-on formulation that epitomizes luxurious in a bottle. It’s a strong mix of nourishing, anti-inflammatory plant oils corresponding to Jojoba, Sea Buckthorn, Meadowfoam, and Apricot Kernel to call a couple of.
Byredo’s participation ends in a restricted version launch that will finest be described as a high-end perfume with skincare advantages. Uplifting but calming, the intriguing mixture of jasmine, pine, and fig is solely excellent. After a vivid woodsy opening, the scent will get barely floral for a bit solely to dry down with a clear, earthy accord. It’s under no circumstances fruity as a result of the fig is sharp, leafy, and inexperienced. I like the whole lot about it.
The best way to apply the Bregenzerwald physique oil.
Right here’s the key to profitable utility of an oil: after a shower or bathe, pour a couple of drops into the palm of your hand, and therapeutic massage it into nonetheless damp pores and skin. Then, gently pat your self dry with a towel. Or, simply prance round bare for a minute as a result of that’s precisely how shortly it is going to soak up.
