For me, this was the highlight of the Tom Ford Summer 2015 collection! I love body products that add a bit of much needed oomph to sadly ignored legs in a matter of seconds. Dry skin on the body is one of my pet peeves so I am careful to moisturise very regularly but sometimes I like taking things to the next level for those special occasions. Thank you Tom Ford for bringing out JUST the right product.
The Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil is a masterpiece. One whiff and I was taken back to my holiday in Hawaii cos it smells of coconuts, sand, white flowers and a colorful cocktail. It’s the dreamy island of Maui inside a designer glass bottle.
It has a spray nozzle that makes it very easy to apply. The arm swatch above has about 3-4 sprays rubbed in which makes it very shimmery. I would use it so full on for a night out on my legs and shoulders only. Otherwise, I would rather mix it in with any other body lotion/ self tanner or apply about one spray rubbed in on one arm. It gives the skin a sheen and a subtle sparkle that makes you look like you just stepped out of a very expensive spa treatment. The formula is very very light weight and once you massage it in it’s really not sticky at all.
I would say though that if you go quite full on, the sparkle does go a bit everywhere including clothes and on other people. SO be careful not to use too much. The lesser, the better!
