Moroccanoil Body – Shimmering Body Oil

Moroccanoil Shimmering Body Oil opener


Complimenting the new Body range of products from Moroccanoil® is the ‘Shimmering Body Oil’, the jewel of the collection. Infused with that beyond-addictive signature scent and filled with a sensual yet discreet sparkle, not to mention so many beneficial ingredients, your skin will surely invoke sighs of envy.

Moroccanoil Shimmering Body Oil

Shimmering Body Oil (CAN $45.00/ 50 ml) – a blend of skin nourishing oils, the much-loved Moroccanoil® scent, and an ultra fine shimmer suspended throughout, this oil is meant to not only provide a deep moisture, but also impart a radiant glow to the skin while doing so. Housed in a luxe glass bottle, the dropper applicator ensures that you can control how much (or little) you use. Note: gently roll the bottle between your hands before application, to evenly distribute the shimmer it holds.

Key Ingredients Include:

  • Argan Oil – extremely rich in natural tocopherols (Vitamin E), essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants, helping to hydrate and nourish the skin, improving its texture and tone
  • Sesame Oil – contains powerful anti-oxidants that help build up skin’s natural defence and moisture repair

My thoughts: I was initially concerned that this product would be too oily to work with, but I was surprised to find how quickly it absorbed. While you can apply this oil at any time you feel like your skin can use a little moisture boost, I found the best way is after showering and towelling off, when my skin was still slightly moist and better able to receive all the nourishing properties this Shimmering Body Oil has to offer. The shimmery bits are actually so incredibly fine, that there’s no fear of looking like a Twilight extra upon application – they instead serve to provide a gorgeous luminosity that becomes just a touch more apparent when direct light hits your skin. The suppleness this oil lent to wherever I applied it, not to mention that heavenly aroma, was just the icing on the cake.

For me, there’s nothing quite like the relaxing sensation of taking the time to fully pamper my body, and there’s no denying the long-lasting suppleness to the skin that only a body oil can provide. Enhancing that experience with a light kiss of shimmer and a tantalizing scent, just sweetens the deal. Everything about this oil just screams “luxury”, and let’s face it … aren’t you worth it?

Hint: Another great Holiday idea for the Moroccanoil® fan on your list – if you can bear to part with it, that is!

    This reminds me of the Nuxe Shimmering Body Oil as well, though I am finding it incredibly hard to hunt that down where I live, other than Amazon! Can imagine the Moroccanoil in use on shoulders, arms and legs for a Christmas party… Tempting tempting.

      I never tried the Nuxe version, but I’ve seen it – I understand what you mean about similarity. And yes, this body oil will be perfect for a Christmas and/or New Year’s party – I can see it working beautifully on the collar-bone area too!

What are your thoughts, beautiful?
