Summer Must Have: Shimmer Body Oils. 2019 Edition

I am a huge fan of shimmer body oils for summer and have been for a while.  Why? Simply because they make your skin look polished. And don’t worry, you will not end up looking like a greasy disco ball,  shimmer oil for your body is like highlighter for your face. It just makes everything look dewy and glowing, in a good way. Not to mention that it’s not only a visual effect, as the  ingredients in your oil will moisturise, soften and smooth the skin.

While I still remain a huge fan of Omorovicza, you don’t have to spend €70 on it, while it is worth it, in my opinion. So here are three body shimmer oils which caught my attention this summer.

One is brand new, one was around for some time, and the third one just got some new LE shades. Let’s take a look.

I really loved the Bum Bum cream so would expect these to be incredible, as well.  There are

Summer Style Must Have: Denim Shorts

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.

Daniel Sandler Billion Dollar Body Shimmer Review and Swatches

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

My Summer Body Essentials from Xen Tan and Omorovicza

I have posted this photo on Facebook some time ago but I thought I’d also mention these products here.

I would call Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan (review and swatch) and Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil (review and swatch) my summer essentials.

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!

 

Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Review and Photos

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
