For every price range.

It’s your favorite Skinfluencer here. I am writing this article for all the goddesses in you. Let’s get our summer glow goals on together! The goal this summer is taking the highlight beyond your face and to the rest of your body with shimmering body oils because… why not? Extra is better. So, here are my 5 top shimmer lotions that’ll give you that sun-kissed look without spending time in the sun. Click each picture to check them out! From the most expensive to the least expensive. Here we go:

1. Tom Ford Soliel Blanc Shimmering Oil 

price: $100

I know, I know, quite hefty in price. However, this one here is the ultimate fake-it-till-you-make-it. It is the true definition of LUXURIOUS. I picked it up as a birthday gift to myself. If you aren’t planning on committing to constant tanning but want to look slimmer and kissed by the gods, this is the perfect investment. The scent lingers and I glisten for hours each time I wear it. Worth every cent! If you have the opportunity to buy this oil, please don’t think twice and get it! It’s especially great for dark-skin women, you'll have the sexiest glow. The ultimate summer must have! 

2. NARS Body Glow

price: $59

This a Summertime MUST! I simply cannot function without this product during the summer months. I picked it up at Sephora on a whim one day and I have been addicted since! I am a very dark-skinned lady and glow oils could make me easily look ashy as it dries on my skin. However, this stuff is amazing.

It makes my skin look glow-y especially when my skin hits the sun. It goes on easily like an oil, but soaks right in. However, that shiny sheen lasts ALL DAY even though your skin feels impeccable soft and not greasy. I really can't applaud this product enough. Quick warning with this one:  there’s a lot of color in this product. It’s almost like a body make-up. Beware of light color clothes and bedsheets or hugging anyone wearing white. 

3. Fenty Beauty Body Lava

price: $59

We’ve all seen that famous video of Rihanna pouring this product on her shoulder. Ugh! She is everything! Who doesn’t want to be Rihanna? Well, now you can or at least pretend to be. If you feel like you can’t wait another minute to pour it up all summer long, rush over to Sephora and pick up this product since it’s a limited release. A little goes a long way! I made a mistake of drenching in it when I first bought it, but quickly realized, you don’t need much. The product sinks into the skin within 5 minutes! If you want to look like a fine rotisserie chicken all summer long, this is the product. Don’t risk your opportunity to shine bright like a diamond all spring and summer long.

 4. Sol de Janeiro Glow Oils

price: $35

This product was created in In Brazil where glowing skin is a year-round obsession. If you are looking for that sun-kissed and toned look, this is the product for you. The scent is fantastic as well. Anytime I wear this product, people are constantly asking me which perfume am I wearing? And I tell them “straight from Brazil, baby”. Out of all the oils, this one is the only that isn’t sticky at all. It has such a clean glow. If you are looking for a natural glow, this is the perfect substitute for the Fenty Beauty one. This product is GodSend! 

5. Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil

price: $22

I call this product sunshine in a bottle. This bronzing oil is available in three different scents so you can have your ideal fragrance with your ideal glow. The smell is a bit strong, so be aware of that before buying. It also fades within a couple of hours. However, for the price, it's worth it. It blends into the skin nicely and leaves you with the most luxurious glow!

So, let’s get luminous, glowy and fabulous all summer ’19! Happy weekend to you all and as always, thanks for reading!
