As much as we tried to resist the return of body shimmer, it's back. And trust us when we say it's better than ever. No longer is body glitter, well, glittery. Today's oils and creams that boast an illuminated shine are free of chunky glittery flecks and favor more natural shimmers. Although Rihanna is getting a lot of attention for her Body Lava Luminizers, we're eyeing another shimmer option that already sold out on its first launch. And it's finally back!
Starting today, Sol de Janeiro's Glow Oils are back in stock at Sephora, just in time for sundress season. Unlike other products in the category, Sol's version is a actually a lightweight oil that softens and nourishes skin first and foremost. Because it's Sol, you know you can expect delicious and potent ingredients like cupaçu butter, antioxidant rich acaí oil, and conditioning coconut oil to give skin a decadent feel.
But, the Glow Oils are more than just velvety body oils. They deliver a rich, natural glow to skin with just the right amount of shimmer. There are two universally flattering shades, Copacabana Bronze and Ipanema Sunset ($35 each at Sephora). First, Copacabana illuminates skin with a warm golden glow and the rich signature Cheirosa ‘62 Bum Bum Cream fragrance (yes, the yummy pistachio and caramel scent you love from Sol!). But if you prefer something a little more subtle, there's Ipanema, which boasts a champagne shimmer and a brand new fragrance:Cheirosa ‘77 that has notes of pomelo, wild fig, and Brazilian gardenia.
Have we convinced you to revisit body shimmer, yet? If so, you better act fast. These are sure to sell out. (No, seriously. During a pre-sale, they sold out in just eight hours.) Head over to Sephora.com right now to see if you can snag one of the Glow Oils before they're gone!
