This Summer I've realised one thing. Just because I'm not getting my legs out doesn't mean I can't indulge in the beauty-made sun kissed glow that hits the shelves when the sun comes out. I've spoken about my love for Prtty Peashun before but this is about another product I've had the opportunity to try.
Another organic brand whose Kale Eye Cream I absolutely love. Yes, it's Nourish. Now out with their very own Toning Body Shimmer*. It's a light, almost moussey texture with light reflecting particles and a subtle layer of shimmery gold running through it. It does look a little scary when you first pump it out but it blends into a very pretty even glow with a radiance about it. Not sticky, greasy or transferable onto clothes. It's not any particular colour so suitable for all skins and it won't interfere with any fake tan you currently use. In fact, it might be nice to layer on top?
I like the pump. I like the packaging. They always deliver such neat, clean but pretty designs. However, I am unfortunately not a fan of the scent. I'm not exactly sure what it is (probably the frankincense and myrrh) but it smells almost green/mossy sea-weedy to me and although it doesn't last on the skin, it crinkles my nose for the minutes I'm applying. Not the end of the world, because the product itself is growing on me.
If, like me, you've always been nervous to jump onto this section of the beauty market then I think this is your subtle way in. As you can see from my little animation, it's not a scary glitter ball once massaged in. It also contains hyaluronic acid and phyto-active marine extracts so it's not just about temporary healthy looking skin. It's actually doing the job too.
I had my reservations with this one but since trialing it, I actually enjoy using the product and would say that if strong scents aren't a problem for you it's worth a try!
