Shimmer and Glow with Tropic Skincare

 Even though the Summer is almost over, I am not ditching shimmering body oils, golden highlighters and SPF. I love a bit of glow, regardless of the season and SPF is essential all year round as well.

I use shimmering body oils a lot, as I just love the sparkle on my arms and chest and the way the oil adds softness to the skin is amazing. The Summer Goddess Shimmering Body Oil*(£28.00)  contains organic virgin coconut and golden jojoba oils to hydrate and nourish skin and the beautiful scent from Tahitian and bourbon vanilla is just gorgeous! And the shimmer - it is stunning with golden specks reflecting light.

Next, we have two lovely Cream Highlighters*(£18.00). The cool toned one is a bit too pale for my skintone, but the golden one is perfect! These are enriched with extracts of bayberry fruit wax and vitamin E to smooth and protect your skin and coconut oil and jojoba esters to provide a healthy, natural glow.

The shimmer from these is amazing, but still subtle and you can use the cream formula as a highlight or mix it with your foundation for a dewy glow. Just make sure you warm it up with your fingers first for best results, as it blends better that way.

Last but not least, another product I use all year round- SPF. This SPF50 Sun Balm*(£16.00) is a highly effective facial sunscreen balm for those areas of the skin prone to burning. I use it allover my face  before applying foundation or just on it's own if I am not wearing any makeup. The balm contains nourishing extracts of tamanu oil, vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil and Zinc oxide for broad spectrum protection. This formula is waterproof so great for holidays!

Have you tried Tropic Skincare? I adore their products!
