Shimmer oil is a must have for summer, in my opinion, as it enhances the beautiful tan and gives body a sophisticated glow and illumination.
I am personally very happy with the Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil have purchased some time ago.
And here is the newest offering in the shimmer oil department – Clarins Splendours Shimmer Body Oil.
It is described as a non-greasy body oil which nourishes, softens and makes the skin as smooth, as satin. It is scented with mandarin, grapefruit, Tonka bean and ylang ylang.
Sounds like a winner product to me!
The price is £38 for 100ml.
I love Elemis oils, I’ve already used up my Frangipani one completely, so was curious about the Cellutox Active Body Oil, a sample of which I received about a year ago.
I’ve started working out on a regular basis this summer so started using this oil, too.
The brand describes it as an “energising citrus body oil (so it smells really nice) that contains a powerful synergy of detoxifying Sea-buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper.” It is supposed to help combat the build-up of toxins caused by a poor diet, stress and a sedentary lifestyle and also help to combat cellulite and condition skin.
So how do I use it?
I warm several drops of oil in my hands and massage into thighs, buttocks and abdomen. I have just noticed that the brand suggests using it on the tops of arms, so will start doing that, too, as my arms = the area I have been working on very hard for months now. I apply

Elemis just launched a brand new product Evening Blooms Dry Body Oil (£17/50ml) exclusively at QVC.
It contains macadamia oil and vitamin rich kukui oil which should make the skin soft, smooth and hydrated. It is scented with jasmine, vanilla, ylang ylang and osmanthus.

My love affair with Cowshed continues, this time I have picked up their Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil. It is originally £20 for 100 ml but, since it was on sale for around £14, I had to get it.
This oil contains essential oils of jasmine, chamomile and sandalwood. I personally really love the relaxing and calming woody oriental scent. It is quite subtle and not as concentrated as I’d like it to be, but it’s still nice.
Multi-purpouse products are always a win-win situation, so, as you can guess, I am very happy with my purchase.
As my skin is very dry, this is a God-sent product for me. I use it as a bath oil, as a body oil and as a massage oil.
I’d like to mention that
