The watchword for the summer? Body Highlighters!
The warm weather is coming (finally!) and we cannot wait to have a sunkissed skin – always protecting with SPF and tanning safely, I’d recommend – and full of golden glows that enhance the color and make us shine in the light of the sunset. We made a list of 8 highlighters for every taste which should be immediately included in your wishlist and always taken with you on holiday!
1. Glow Edition Body Oil, Freshly Cosmetics
The Glow Edition Body Oil is (hear hear) a 100% naturalhighlighter oil: its luminous effect is given by the natural mica, an excellent alternative to glitter, obtained from minerals and natural pigments in total respect of the skin and environment (as well as being sustainable and free from microplastics). Furthermore, in addition to the shimmer effect, this oil is also a skincare treatment in all respects. Thanks to 2 microalgae technologies, 12 vegetable oils (such as chia oil, which has a high concentration of Omega 3, avocado oil with its protective and regenerating properties, almond oil that stimulates the production of collagen, and many others) and Tisocrysis Lutea microalgae, it increases skin elasticity and firmness, while thanks to mosqueta rose oil and the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, it prevents stretch marks and scars.
The final touch? Its scent (also natural): a heavenly mix of grapefruit, bergamot, orange, pineapple, apple, pomegranate, and sandalwood!
2. Nabla Miami Lights Collection Body Glow, Nabla
A body highlighter in oil-gel with a glossy effect? You can have it with Nabla! The transparent color of the base emphasizes the natural tone of the complexion allowing a universal use of both colors, one with lighter pearls, “Sugar Babe,” and one with darker pearls and bronze, “Max Relax.” A small tip for the application: as it is a liquid highlighter like the ones we use on the face for make-up, we suggest you mix it with a cream or body butter for a lighter and more natural formula that you can spread more easily
3. Major Glow Body Oil, Patrick Ta
In terms of extra glitter, Patrick Ta, as we already know, is always a guarantee (how many of you are enchanted by the slow-motion videos of the highlighters in the brand’s feed?). Major Glow is a body oil that illuminates the skin with a fine pearlescent veil and is enriched with olive oil, squalane, and stabilized Vitamin C, which works at a deeper level to increase the brightness of the skin, stimulate the production of collagen, and protect it from environmental aggressors. It is available in three shades, all with a transparent base but with reflections of different colors: “A Dream” which has beautiful champagne reflections that tend towards the cold undertone, “A Vision,” a warm pink, and “A Moment,” a dark bronze with golden pearls. In addition to that, the olfactory signature of the brand confirms once again its elegance and luxury: a sensual fragrance with jasmine, saffron, and ambergris that will inebriate your senses!
4. Body Lava Body Luminizer, Fenty Beauty
You must have heard of this baby at least once! Fenty Beauty has long conquered the podium of the body highlighters with the historic Body Lava Body Luminizer, a highlighter with a gel texture and sweet vanilla scent. Available in different shades, “Brown Sugar”, which is a warm bronze, and “Who Needs Clothes?!,” a rose gold, it veils the skin with a delicious shiny finish given by the micro-pearls that spread the light combined with a shade of transparent color! P.s.: If we were you, we wouldn’t miss the last Body Lava Body Luminizer arrived at Fenty’s home, “Cognac Candy“, a limited-edition hot bronze!
5. Body Sauce Body Luminizing Tint, Fenty Beauty
You don’t like too many glitters, but you still don’t want to give up a bright veiling and prefer a light shimmer effect? Don’t worry, the Body Sauce Body Luminizing Tint is what you’re looking for! Its gel-cream formula can be applied evenly and blends easily with the skin, enhancing its brightness and resisting moisture and sweat (a guarantee when it’s starting to get hot), while its texture is light and soft. 7 different shades to emphasize the tone of your skin and find the one that best suits you, to be used daily to nourish your skin thanks to its Babassu Oil, emollient and anti-age properties, and Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant capable of eliminating oxidative and inflammatory processes and repairing damage caused to collagen and elastin fibers. What else could you want?
6. Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil Gold Olio Corpo
Are you ready to travel with your mind to the crystal-clear Amalfi Coast and be transported in its clear and deep waters? Tom Ford is inspired by this heavenly place for the Soleil collection, which also includes the Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, an illuminating body oil that takes up the citrus grove and sparkling fragrance of Eau De Soleil Blanc. Inside, the gold and platinum pearls reflect the warm light of the sun ensuring a gentle glow on the skin, while the oil soothes and nourishes the skin after a long day of sun.
7. Kora Organics, Sun-Kissed Glow Body Oil
Kora Organics, the brand by the model Miranda Kerr, is known for the attention it pays to clean beauty and transparency of what we apply to our skin: for this reason, all its products are cruelty-free and formulated with natural ingredients of organic certification, free from pesticides and toxic heavy metals. The Sun-Kissed Glow Body Oil sparkling body oil is no less: it is a certified organic highlighter that instantly gives a subtle tan glow thanks to the pearls derived from mineral pigments, while also providing deep nourishment to the skin thanks to its organic desert date oil, rose hips oil, sunflower seeds and sea-buckthorn, that are combined to provide the skin with all the essential fatty acids it needs.
8. Body Shimmer Oil, Rituals
Two in one: Rituals’ Body Shimmer Oil is not only a body oil but, thanks to its complex tan activator, it allows our complexion to last longer. The small illuminating mineral particles make our skin glow, while the oil nourishes it intensely. Moreover, sacred lotus, known as a symbol of purity and appreciated for its soothing and treating properties, and white tea intertwine in a sweet and at the same time intense aroma that will last all day!
9. Perle De Coco Glow Body Lotion, Perle De Coco Glow Body Wash, & Other Stories
& Other Stories instead has created the perfect product for the lovers of shiny creams: Perle de Coco Glow Body Lotion is a moisturizer for the body infused with bronze pearls to leave our skin super bright and, at the same time, to offer some hydration boost. In addition to that, if you love delicate and sweet perfumes, this is the product for you: its fragrance will captivate you with fragrant notes of coconut milk, hot vanilla, and sweet caramel – yum!
The latest news at & Other Stories is Perle de Coco Glow Body Wash and it is a super foamy bath gel (as we like it) infused with bronze pearls that, after being rinsed, cover the body with luminous streaks and leaves on the skin a sweet mix that smells like milky coconut, warm vanilla, and sweet caramel.
