Body Shimmers

The last time I can remember wearing body shimmer was when I use to shop at Claire’s and buy anything that was glittery. Do you remember those days? Shopping endlessly with your girlfriends at your local mall and sometimes not ever buying a single thing. Those were the carefree days.

Body shimmers have become extremely popular within the last couple of years. My favorite types of body shimmers are hydrating, glowy, and non-sticky. Who wants to worry about your body shimmer transferring on your cute outfit? No body. Keep reading to find out the best body shimmers that are non-sticky.

Patrick Ta Body Oil

The Patrick Ta Body Oil absorbs into the skin instantly without feeling sticky or greasy. Moisturizing with a illuminating glow that looks beautiful in person and in photos. I really appreciate that this product is vegan, cruelty-free, and recyclable. Although there is a scent to this body oil, it is subtle and sweet. This will not interfere with your perfume or any other scents you apply to your body since it complements many other scents. I sometimes skip the perfume and only wear this body oil.

There are three shades available: A Vision (rosé), A Dream (champagne), and A Moment (bronze) but any of these shades will look amazing on you, no matter your skin tone. I have light skin with warm undertones and A Moment looks stunning on me. Do not feel intiminated by the darker shade. The best way to apply it is with a large densed brush. Patrick Ta has a body brush that goes along with his products but I think the e.l.f Multi Blender Massager is a great alternative for a lower price.

Derma E x SunKissAlba Radiant Glow Oil

Derma E x SunKissAlba Radiant Glow Oil

The Derma E x SunKissAlba Radiant Glow Oil is formulated with skin-loving antioxidants to help nourish and deeply moisturize skin. It includes skin care oils such as jojoba, argan and seabuckthorn. This oil is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, recyclable, wind energy certified, and formulated without GMOs, gluten, or soy.

When applying, make sure to shake it first using only 2-3 drops on clean skin. This oil can be used on your face, body, and hair. I love to travel with this product since it is so multipurpose.


Glimmer Goddess Illuminating Whipped Body Butter

The Glimmer Goddess Organic Illuminating Whipped Body Butter absorbs quickly into your skin leaving a soft, shimmering effect. Although this is not a body oil, this is perfect for you if you have ashy elbows or knees. It contains pure organic shea butter, almond oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil, for maximum moisturizing with vitamins A, D, E, and F.

I bought the Subtle Gold Shimmer but they offer 11 other shades depending on the amount of shimmer you want to achieve and color. I love this shade since it doesn’t make me look like a disco ball but instead my skin looks glowy. It smells like a lemon citrus but it is not overbearing at all.

L’oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour

The L’oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour is an amazing glow booster that can be added foundation, applied to the high points of your face, and your body. A little goes a long way so use sparingly especially if you mix it with your foundation. I love using this specific product on my clavicle since it gives an extra pop to my chest. Available in two colors: Daybreak (cool tone) and Golden Hour (warm tone).

Now you know how I keep my body looking glowy all summer long. I hope you guys try out these products whatever your budget or preference in ingredients may be. Keep the glow going this summer and don’t forget your SPF! Comment below your favorite body shimmer!
