In my Bolero Skincare haul, I mentioned creating shimmer body oils with the Vanilla Cream and Apple & Cinnamon face, hair & skin body oils I had purchased. The bottle that the oils come in were literally perfect for this as they have a pump which is great for easy application to the skin. To see what I used, and my results, keep reading!
What you will need:
Oil of your choice
Loose pigments (finely milled glitter can be used too)
A spray bottle or bottle with a dropper
Paper towels or paper to catch the excess fall out
Small spoon, scoop or hair pin.
First you will need to lay the piece of paper or paper towel down to catch any fallout from the pigments. After this it’s quite simple. You will add the pigments and oil to the bottle using your scoop of choice (I used the end of a hair pin) – there is so specific order to this step – then mix the two together. Add different amounts, and various colors to customize the body oil to your liking. I used about three different pigments in each oil until I was satisfied with the results.
For example, with the Vanilla Cream oil, I decided to make the coloring lighter because that scent is lighter, and it seemed to fit. Then for the Apple & Cinnamon, I used the darker mixture of pigments.
PRO TIP: Massage the oil into damp or wet skin for the most moisture. When drying off use your towel in patting motions.
The final product:
