I am currently obsessing over dry oils and this golden shimmery body oil from Nuxe (£34) is a little bit special. It smells like holidays so make me feel super summery even if the weather hasn't got the message. The aroma is so gorgeous that Nuxe have also released a perfume in the same fragrance. The other reason I really like it is the gold shimmery particles,within the oil, they are really small, so don't look glittery, just giving a sunkissed sheen to the skin. When the weather has been warm enough to get my limbs out, I have been dousing them in with the oil, and I think it will look even better with a bit of a tan.
The spray applicator means it is easy to get an even disoribution of the product, but can mean that you room decor also get a shimmer added, so do be careful! Also, the shimmery particles do settle to the bottom, so you need to shake well before applying.
The oil also contains vitamin E which nourishes and softens the skin. Although the product is recommended for the face and hair along with the body, I don't think the shimmer works as well, but if you find that too, the oil is also available from Nuxe without the shimmer added.
The photo shows the oil having been applied in a thin layer to the leg on the left (of the photo!) and without on the right where I was enjoying the afternoon sunshine at the weekend.
