Since it’s a Friday, I thought I would share something a little glamorous – and Clarins’ new After Sun Shimmer Oil really fits the bill!
Packaged in a chic, slightly minimalist glass bottle, Clarins After Sun Shimmer Oil is the perfect addition to any summer tanning you might be planning. When you first pour a little out the bottle (and you do only need a tiny drop) the oil looks like it’s a shimmering puddle of molten copper. It really is the most gorgeous formula – once you have your shimmering little puddle, just massage it into your legs, arms and décolletage. The oil adds a perfect hint of warmth to the skin, and I just adore the rather subtle shimmer. It oil isn’t at all thick or greasy, and it smooths immediately into skin, and makes your legs look inches longer, as well as a bit thinner (and when is that a bad thing?)
The oil, when smoothed into skin leaves a really pretty, subtle sheen that makes skin look perfectly polished and almost airbrushed. I love to use it to disguise any little bruises or scars I have on my legs (thanks childhood lacrosse!) and I’m intrigued by the fact you can even use the After Sun Shimmer Oil on the ends of your hair! Hazelnut oil and Vitamin E work to soothe skin, and the oil has a delicately tropical scent thanks to the extracts of tonka bean, mandarin and grapefruit.
Clarins After Sun Shimmer Oil is priced at £32.00 and is available here.
