8 Shimmer Body Oils To Give You Major Glow

Get that glow from inside the house.

Don’t have time to get out in the sun? Same – I’m working all of the time (please note how many all-nighters I pull. Actually, please don’t). So, I’ve begun using shimmer body oils to trick others into thinking I get that daily walk in.

Yes, I know I should go outside (leave me alone, QUILL team). But I have so much to do with so little time. And then there’s the fact that I don’t tan, just burn, so that radiant glow I desire? It only comes from body oils.

Sound like you? One, thank god, and two, I’ve got the solution for you. I present: eight shimmer body oils that will give you a glow without having to leave the office. Though, for both of our sakes, please leave the office. I’m living vicariously through you.

We love it when shimmer body oils come in a variety of colors, like Colourpop’s Sol Shimmering Dry Oil! There are nine colors to choose from, ranging from clear to pink to orange (but not, like, bad-tan-orange, promise), and they’ll all give you high shine. Coconut, argan, and marula oils come together to give you a hydrating, nourishing touch.

truffle therapy shimmering body oil

Get your glitter on, bb, because the Truffle Therapy Shimmering Oil ain’t f*cking around. Meant to evoke the feeling of summer, this multi-functional dry body oil doesn’t just make you radiate – it also moisturizes. The secret ingredients are Maracujá, argan, Sicilian sweet almond, and jojoba oils, which come together to hydrate. Black truffle extract is the cherry on top, blasting your epidermis with antioxidants to fight aging and protect from free radicals.

Shimmer Body Oil

Before we get into it, we’re gonna warn you just like Cee Cee’s Closet does: like many of these shimmery body oils, don’t use this body oil if you’re allergic to nuts. Okay, now that that’s out of the way… organic sweet almond, grapeseed, and moringa oil blend together and burst with hydration, while sunflower seed oil’s vitamin E helps protect and repair skin. Throw in organic hibiscus petals, and you have a shimmer body oil that nourishes – and smells fantastic, too.

gold shimmer oil

If you don’t want to shine bright like a diamond, this Gold Shimmer Oil is more subtle than the rest. You can also add it to your hair, because the ingredients work on both strands and skin: vitamin E helps to protect and repair, while calendula oil moisturizes and conditions (and also strengthens hair!). Enjoy a full-body glow and spa-like treatment for less than $50 in one product.

N.Y.M.P.H. BODY DRIP Shimmering Dry Oil

Kind of obsessed with the name, more obsessed with the shimmer this body oil gives you. While some body oils go on and feel slimy, Huda’s goes on and absorbs into your skin, no stickiness or grease included. Hydrating jojoba and avocado oils meet protective vitamin E, resulting in a shimmer body oil that can also be used in your hair – we love a good double duty product.

Fairy Godmother Shimmering Body Oil Gel


Sunday Riley is a brand I’m super excited to try, because all of their products are total hits among the QUILL audience (okay, and the team). Cruelty-free and clean, the dry shimmer body oil goes on and feels weightless – you get the glimmer without feeling weighed down. Vitamin C helps brighten, while enzyme CoQ10 enters the game and helps protect from all types of rays. Soooo… I’ll be buying this next, is what I’m saying.
