Give your body some glow with NARS, Borghese and The Body Shop!

I spend so much time on the skin on my face that I sometimes forget that there's a whole lot of body skin that wants attention too!  Here's a few products I've been trying out lately:

NARS Laguna Body Illuminator - 150ml - $52 -  I've heard so many raves about this product that I just had to try it and I'm glad I did. I like the smell and I like the light shimmer but I did find the colour a tad dark for my fair skin.  This was easy enough to fix, I just add a small amount of body lotion to tone it down and it's perfect.

This is a fabulous product for days when I realize I have to wear a skirt and need to do something about my pasty white legs without having the time to apply self tanner. You can just rub it on, do your thing and the next day it washes off.  I didn't have any issues with it coming off on my clothes or sheets either. I'm a fan!

Find it at Sephora and sephora.com

Borghese Splendore Brightening Body Glow - 112ml - $35.50 - lightweight, moisturizing shimmer lotion with a subtle shimmer that brightens and flatters any skin tone for gorgeous radiance.  Camouflages minor skin imperfections and evens out skin tone.  Lightly scented and hydrating with added vitamins A & E and glycerin.

There is no colour to this lotion just glow so this looks a lot better if you already have a bit of natural colour, as I've discovered, it's not that flattering on fish-belly white skin! The work-around is adding a dab of liquid bronzer in with the shimmer to perk it up a bit!

Available at www.borghese.com
Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil - 100ml - $14 - for a natural-looking bronzed shimmering glow with a dry finish.  Long-lasting and streak-free.

If you want something that has both the colour of the NARS and the shimmer of the Borghese, this is a great pick! It's an oil but it's not the least bit greasy or rub off on your clothes!

It's limited edition though so don't wait to pick it up (and of course you could win it by entering our contest here)!
