Now that Spring is in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about bronzing our bodies and trying to look as glowy as possible. So, here’s a list of products you need to GLOW this Spring and Summer.
This oil is so glowy, it might be one of the first body shimmers to launch that wasn’t made for tweens. It’s key ingredient is monoi oil (a Polynesian coconut extract that is mixed with tiare flower), moisturising skin while leaving it smelling like sweet gardenia, and of course, leaving behind a glimmering gold tint that would make even J.Lo jealous.
The name says it all. It leaves skin feeling supple (that’s the caffeine and shiitake extract working), smooth (it contains caffeine to perk the skin right up) and highlighted in all the right places (using mica).
Body Lava is the body illuminator that flew off the shelves in its first week. The gel slicks across the skin to give it an evenly dispersed shimmer for an ethereal glow in the sunlight. Rihanna tells Vogue that the gel body highlighter was inspired by her trips to Barbados, where she would make her own body highlighter using oil and crushed eyeshadow pigments that she would mix together and keep in a cup during her whole stay. Unfortunately, this was limited edition, but if you managed to snag this gem, treasure it with your heart and soul!
We would describe the GLO range as goof-proof, mess-proof and budge-proof. The tinted products are all you really need for a nice tan with a hint of shimmer or gloss. Two of these bronzing products have light-reflecting pigments with the third being a matte finish (if you’re about that matte life.) It’s the perfect product to use if you don’t want to commit to a full body fake tan application and it just washes off in the shower when you’re done.
While this product helps you to get a natural tan in the Summer, it acts as an instant boost of bronze and shimmer for those nights out. This body oil is also super nourishing and smells like cocoa. Make sure you give the bottle a good shake before using it to release all the gorg shimmer particles. We love a multitasking product!
Nothing says summer like bronzed, glowy skin. So it’s time to whip out your favourite body oils and shimmers and start embracing this beautiful spring weather!
