I was gifted a shimmery dry body oil back in the late 00s that I absolutely loved. Unfortunately, it was from an MLM company, and the glowy body oil trend seemed to die out around the same time. I've occasionally tried to find a replacement product that gives me the same fine shimmer and hydration. This Sunday Riley one is the best I've found in my decade of searching. I've tried Patrick Ta, KKW, Sol de Janeiro, and Biossance, but something about those was never quite right: no discernible glow, too greasy, too glittery, etc. I love the subtle but still very much apparent shimmer this gives, and the fine texture of the shimmer particles and the oil itself. The product absorbs nicely into my skin and gives me just the right amount of shimmer. I have light skin, but I can definitely believe what another reviewer reported about the product not showing up as well on dapper skin tones. I'd love if Sunday Riley released this in one or two additional colors or intensities to account for different skin tones.
The shimmer is perfection. It's not glittery or showy at all, but it's definitely there in the right light. It looks beautiful on. The texture is silky and delicious. Though, maybe a little too slick for awhile in warm temps. My only negative was the smell. I expected it to smell like gardenia or some other essential oil used. But it smells a lot like old school Coppertone. That could be fun for summer... but I prefer a more complex, luxurious scent (my favorite is Divine Oil by Caudalie). But overall, this feels wonderful & looks beautiful.

I like the way this makes my skin feel, soft with a *very* subtle shimmer. Not really sparkles, but a soft glow. I'm sure it would be prettier if I had a bit more of a tan - but the smell of this is enough to make me not want to buy it again. Smells fake, kind of plastic. I can cover it up with a good perfume or lotion, but for the price I would rather buy something that I like the scent of.

I'm not sure how so many people are leaving great reviews. I just used it for the first time and I can't even tell I have it on. There is no noticeable shimmer at all on my light skin. The smell is OK and it's skin-softening so I will keep it, but if you're buying it for that glow, I'd try something else. The packaging was nice. I guess maybe I expected too much.

I bought this on a whim a while back and then completely forgot about it until about 3 weeks ago. I have been GLOWING. With a tan it looks even better and its subtle enough I dont look like Edward Cullen in the daytime. Over lotion or on it's own its fantastic and I'll be stocking up really soon.

It's shimmery gold in a bottle for your skin, what more is there to say? Well, for starters, it also smells gently decadent. It makes your tan (and even non-tan) look like magic fairy dust. Definitely delivers on all its promised. I love this and would bathe in it if I could afford to - and it wasn't so wasteful.

I'm loving this body oil. Nice shimmer and moisturizing but not oily or greasy. My tan-deep skin looks amazing with Fairy Godmother.

i like this WAY more than i thought i would. it smells great. it absorbs and drys down perfectly into skin. i've tried other oils before that are sticky or never absorb and immediately wipe off. it's the perfect amount of shimmer for day to day use or you can use a little extra for a night out or if you're at the beach.

I wish I could "like" the comment below mine about the variation in colors for differing skin tones. The shimmer showed up on my skin- I've got fair skin- but for others it may be an issue. I just got this in the mail and I enjoy it immensely already. It's got a nice, subtle fragrance that even the most sensitive of noses can appreciate. I like how well it seems to moisturize- I put it on after I took a shower and it absorbed straight away. I've used other body oils (not necessarily shimmery types) that sat on my skin and left a greasy residue that made me feel like I rolled around in canola oil, but this one did not. Keep it up Sunday Riley!

I'm really surprised by how much I love this stuff. I have literally every shade of the Sol De Janeiro Glow Oils as well as several other body oil glitter type/highlighter things. They're fun and pretty but are just too glittery, especially during the day time. As I've gotten a bit older I don't want to be visibly glittery (sad), so this is perfect because it's subtle enough to catch the light but looks like you just have really pretty skin. It's much more of a glow than a glitter. I LOVE it.

Right now I'm loving this product for adding shimmer to my holiday party look but I know I'll use it just as much in the summer!
Clarissa S. from Seattle
Apply to clean skin. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, like other lotions. But I purchased for the shimmer, which doesn't show up on my complexion.

Ok, so I have to admit I was hesitant to try this as I didn't want to look overboard with too much glitter. It was the only Sunday Riley product I didn't have. I ordered and when I put it on I was pleasantly surprised! It was thinner than I expected and went on nicely - not too much shimmer!! It soaked into my skin and is hydrating to boot! Yay. I would recommend this to anyone!! Go with the glow!

The best body shimmering product ever!!!! It's so silky and smooth. It looks beautiful on any skin tone! I love that the shimmer is surprisingly subtle, not a heavy glittery shine. It's just perfect!!!
