Tag: summer must have
I don’t write about style/fashion, as I don’t really follow the trends and usually wear very simple clothes, and a lot of black… (Here is my Pinterest “style” board )
But I thought it was worth mentioning my summer essential – denim shorts. I have been pretty much living in this pair. They go on so well with everything, and by everything I mean: black, white, red, burgundy and stripy t-shirts and tank-tops.
I love September and Indian Summer, it is still warm and sunny but not boiling hot, just perfect! It’s is also the time when you an still wear t-shirts (and shorts) and shimmering body products!
Today I want to show you Daniel Sandler’s Billion Dollar Body Shimmer which I actually took it with me on a holiday this summer and enjoyed using it both on body and eyes!
This is how it looks like: you get a bronze metallic shade and a shimmering bronze shade. The shades can be used separately or mixed together.
This powder comes with a puff which is very handy but I love using Daniel’s Kabeauti brush which works perfect and gives a lighter application.
I would recommend using it on a moisturized skin but not after you’ve just moisturized so that you can blend the product properly, otherwise it may just stick to your skin. I think you can also try mixing a bit of the product with your lotion, I haven’t tried it myself though.
This is a shimmering product as
I have posted this photo on Facebook some time ago but I thought I’d also mention these products here.
Both products are not cheap and I have got them both last summer (from look fantastic) and I consider it to be an amazing investment!
I have dark eyes and hair so a lot of people think that I tan easily and that my skin tone is medium at least. But it’s not, my skin is rather pale but not in an ‘Dita von Teese’ kind of way, and it takes me ages to get some colour.
This is why in summer I like using the Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe once per week on my body to give myself some healthy looking glow. The brand actually has a darker shade which I plan to get next (I have a lighter shade, too. Review).
As for the oil, it smells divine and gives the most gorgeous shimmer in the sunlight. I am addicted!
I have already written about how much I loved my Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan which I was using in summer. And today I want to tell you about the version that I am using right now.
It is called Xen-Tan Transform Luxe (£24.99)
I love my Deep Bronze but it’s a bit dark for me in winter so Transform Luxe is a perfect shade. It builds the tan gradually and gives a lighter tan which looks natural in winter on the girls with fair/light skin.
Transform Luxe is also an amazing product, it develops a light healthy looking tan, with no streaks or orange undertones. It is fool-proof. I am not an expert at self-tanning and I’ve never managed to make it look bad on me. Just make sure that you read the instructions.
As for the scent
I wanted to get something luxurious for my body the other day and I’ve decided to try something from Omorovicza as I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brand.
I’ve decided to get a Gold Shimmer Oil which looks like this before you shake it well to mix the oil with the shimmer.
And here is how it looks like after…
This oil comes in a nice glass bottle with an elegant minimalistic design. As for the oil itself -it smells amazing (I think it’s mainly calendula), absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling moisturized, soft and smooth. It is a perfect product for summer as it gives an amazing glow on a tanned skin. I absolutely love using it on my arms and legs, it gives a beautiful illuminating/ glamorous (if you prefer) effect.
Here is the list of the ingredients and extended information about some of them from the official website:
