AFTER SUN? GLOW FOR IT!
Keeping with the theme of summer skin,
I’ve been trying out Soleil Toujours Après Soleil Exotic Shimmer Body Oil (€66, net-a-porter.com) and really can’t recommend it highly enough. This is a super-luxe blend of oils including rosehip, argan and pomegranate as well as green tea and rosemary leaf extracts, all working to moisturise and soothe the skin. There’s also some jasmine oil in the mix, so it smells great, too. But the bronze shimmer tint is spot on – not too glittery so you really just get a sunny radiance like that look you see in magazines and think they’ve likely faked it somehow. For a less expensive option, try
Elf Retro Paradise Glow Up Body Oil (€13.20, elfcosmetics.com). It doesn’t feel quite as gorgeous to use but it still delivers what its name suggests and comes in two shades: the golden-hued Sunkissed and deeper bronze Golden Hour.
