Ahhhhh….I feel great every time I just read that!!
Ok, back to business. I tried out two of the Body Glows…the one I haven’t tried is the Blush Skies Body Glow ($49) which looks divine, like it will give sallow skin a beautiful shimmery rosy glow. Here are the two types I did test:
BODY GLOW – GOLDEN HOUR ($49.00) is a bronzing body oil that is wonderfully hydrating and great for skin. The oil is and incredible concoction of Camellia Oil, Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Baobab Oil, and Orange Sweet Oil – what a treat for skin!! The scent is delightful, a light sweet aroma of jasmine. The glow is a soft tan with golden glimmer…it looks very natural and not glittery or sparkly, so this is great for daytime or nighttime.
It has just enough color to even out skin tone for those with up to medium skin tones. Any darker and you will enjoy the glow, but won’t see any tanning effect. The mica settles to the bottom so you have to shake this up well before application, and the dropper makes it easy to apply without getting oil everywhere. I love this – it’s more subtle than Nars Monoi Body Glow both in application and scent, so I definitely prefer it over the Nars.
BODY GLOW – SHINING STAR ($49.00) has the exact same beautiful body oil mixture as Golden Hour, just a different scent and different glow power. The scent for Shining Star is summery Neroli, which is a light, sweet floral with just a hint of citrus.
The glow is a lovely opalescence that gives skin a beautiful youthfulness. It lends a golden tone to skin mixed with a bit of silver, and the effect is truly lovely! I put this on my arms, chest, and legs and it evens out my skin tone, masks any blue or green veins, and reflects enough light to hide most imperfections. It isn’t disco ball shimmery so I feel completely comfy wearing it during the day, yet it does catch the light so it’s fun to wear at night too.
The Body Glows are super fun products that smell great and definitely perform as highlighters. I am loving these and keep them right next to my shorts and short sleeve shirts!
I previously reviewed the Coconut Elixir Cream and Flowers in Your Hair I can definitely say that I am completely smitten with SALT by Hendrix. You can find SALT by Hendrix at hip stores like Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, as well as at their own online store at www.saltbyhendrix.com. – Lisa
