History always repeats itself… even in the makeup world! Body shimmers were all the rage when I was in school and now, they have come back into action. However, there is one major difference. The shimmers of the past were more obvious and glittery, whilst the newer iterations all promise to give a dewier glow. Here are 5 worth stocking up on.

1. Fenty Beauty Body Lava

This was the product responsible for the resurgence of body shimmers! The gel-based formula leaves behind a silky and luminous sheen that will make your body gleam. Whilst I love the look of the rose gold hue, ‘Who Needs Clothes?!’, you can go the extra mile by opting for ‘Trophy Wife’, which is a metallic gold named after the brand’s iconic highlighter.

2. NARS Monoi Body Glow

Everything about this formula screams luxury. Infused with Monoï De Tahiti Oil, this deep bronze shimmer sinks into the skin to deliver an all-over lustre. Since it also contains notes of tiare blossom, white frangipani, ylang-ylang and vanilla, you will smell as good as you look!

3. MAC Strobe Cream Body Lotion

Looking for something more subtle? Turn to this hydrating body lotion. Lightweight and creamy, this non-greasy formula absorbs quickly to keep skin soft and smooth. The pearlescent finish and slight pink tint ensure that your limbs look lit-from-within in the most natural way.

4. Huda Beauty N.Y.M.P.H Not. Your. Mama’s. Panty. Hose.

This new product is already making waves in the beauty community. With its micro-shimmer particles, it glides on to give a sun-kissed glow that will stay put all day. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the formula getting on to your clothes as this product is transfer-resistant!

5. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil

If you are looking to enhance your summer tan, reach for this dry oil. Not only does it provide a beautiful, golden-brown finish, but also feels weightless and non-sticky when applied. I love using this on my collarbones and shoulders to get a little extra shine.
