Now is the best time of the year to show some skin. While you probably already have a nice tan going, you can take that bronze to the next level with some body shimmer. There are so many products to choose from that will have your skin glistening from a mile away. Here are six products that are easy to apply, feel great on skin, and will give you the best glow.
1. Pinrose – Sun Saint
This product merges body shimmer and fragrance into one scintillating spray. The scent is reminiscent of the ocean with notes of coconut, basically summer in a bottle. Add some golden shimmer to that and you will look like a golden goddess wearing this. This product is perfect to bring on vacation as you can use this as your fragrance and as your lotion, narrowing down what you need to pack for your trip.
2. Fenty – Body Lava
Of course, the queen of all things sexy Rihanna created a showstopping body shimmer, Body Lava. This product is light and gel-based leaving skin with a high-shine finish. It comes in three colors — gold, rose gold and silver. However, in Rihanna’s world, they have much better names, Trophy Wife, Who Needs Clothes?! and Brown Sugar. This floral and vanilla-scented lotion will turn heads with an irresistible sheen.
3. Patrick Ta – Major Glow Oil
Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta has worked with the likes of Shay Mitchell and the Hadid sisters so he really knows how to create showstopping glam. Ta’s Major Glow Oil works for both the face and the body adding a pearlescent glow to skin. His concoction also features a hydrophobic emollient complex made of argan oil and lavender that’s long-lasting and moisturizing for skin.
4. Nuxe – Huile Prodigieuse
This shimmering dry oil is the OG of shimmer body oils made by French skincare brand Nuxe. It smells incredible and gives your skin a nice satin finish. This product is especially amazing on legs where it gives them a nice glow, like a silk pair of tights without the annoyingness of wearing tights. This product features an array of great oils like camellia, almond and macadamia oil that will nourish your skin beyond the glow you get with this shimmer oil.
5. Kopari – Coconut Body Glow
Kopari is good at all things coconut and that includes their unreal body glow product. You’ll smell delightful like floral gardenia and, of course, coconut while getting some nice shimmer on your skin going. This lightweight product is filled with natural pearlescent minerals and can be used as a highlighter on specific parts of your body or mixed with lotion (even SPF) to spice things up.
6. Sol de Janeiro – Glowmotions Glow Oil
In Brazil glowing skin is a must so it only makes sense that Brazilian Sol de Janeiro created an oil that will have your skin looking luscious. This product comes in a variety of shades and smells like a vacation in a bottle. Wear this on the beach with your skimpiest bikini to feel true Brazilian vibes.
