What to Look for in a Shimmering Oil
- Finely milled
Not all shimmers are created equal. Bartlett says to look for finely milled mica, rather than large chunks glitter, in order to give an overall sheen.
There are no two shimmering body oils the same. Double-check the color before you apply. Bartlett explains that you need to choose whether you prefer a gold, bronze or no color.
To ensure that you don’t react to a new product when trying it out, patch test your skin first. Bartlett says to pay attention to the ingredients list to make sure you are happy with the oil combination. Bartlett also explains that you need to check for transferring (how fast the product dries).
Where can you apply body shimmer oil
You can glow anywhere you like! Apply shimmer oil to your collarbone, shoulders and calves for a subtle glow that catches light.
When is it appropriate to use shimmer body oil
After cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing, you’ll apply the oil. You might wait to apply the oil depending on where it will be used.
Do I use my fingers to apply oil or a brush?
It all depends on what you prefer. People prefer to apply oil with their fingers because it allows the oil to sink into the skin. Some prefer to use a fan brush or kabuki makeup brush for a more precise application.
