This weekend’s post is not going to be about makeup, but it will bring you such a luxurious item that has the given power to make anyone look fabulous! This is the Tom Ford, Limited Edition, Shimmering Body Oil, from the Summer 2015 Soleil Makeup Collection.
“This is just another body oil brands always come out during Summer!“,
some might say. And you might think they’re right until you get to try this for the first time!
The smell is so nice and the texture is beyond amazing! I’m not the biggest fan of body oils and I haven’t found too many to suit my demands. But unlike all the oils I have tried, this one is by far the best and the most luxurious feeling!
It absorbs instantly and doesn’t leave a greasy residue, no matter how much you apply! It makes your skin feel smooth and silky and thanks to these playful gold and platinum leaf shimmering particles you’ll be wearing the diffused glow of an angel!
Make sure you shake it well before you apply it, because it separates!
It is the most beautiful final touch to a sun-kissed summer skin! Plus it is really hydrating and emollient thanks to the lightweight oils in its composition, that will feel amazing on your sun drenched skin, after a full day on the beach enjoying the sun and the waves.
Its captivating fragrance wraps a bouquet of white florals in a golden, amber-sandalwood embrace
– this is a description I found online about the scent of this body oil and I think this is the closest to the truth it can get! I for instance, wasn’t able to come out with a better description for it than: a tropical garden, coconutty, delicious goodness that lingers on my skin throughout the whole day.
Scents are personal, but this is how I feel it smells combined with the chemistry of my own skin!
Another particularity of the Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil is its consistency! This is not one of those oils that can be sprayed on the skin as it comes out as a concentrated, dense, almost jelly-like oil that I warm up between my hands before I use it and then apply it wherever I want!
I’ve been wearing it a lot as a perfume lately, so I mainly apply a tiny bit on my neck, shoulders and hands! It is a powerful scent and if you’re familiar with the fragrances from the Tom Ford Private Blend Collection, it’s something along those lines… Powerful, seductive and long-lasting!
Plus, the packaging is pure perfection and I think it would look amazing on any vanity!
I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure you check out the reviews on my other picks from the Tom Ford Summer 2015 Collection: Pink Sand – cream blush, Golden Peach – cream eyeshadow duo, Skinnydip and Rose Soleil – sheer lipsticks.
See you soon, beautiful!
