6 of the best shimmering body oils for summer

6 of the best shimmering body oils for summer

Shimmering body oils are perfect for summer. Not only are they super moisturising thanks to their blend of plant oils, they also provide the skin with a light golden finish without the need for fake tan.

Melting seamlessly into the skin, shimmering body oils are perfect worn alone or layered over a tan for a radiant, more illuminated finish.

If you have quite dehydrated skin, they also work wonders at smoothing and softening. Packed with nourishing extracts like jojoba, sunflower and olive oils, these shimmering body oils replenish lost hydration and prevent further moisture loss.
