Since I am fully embracing my pale skin, I haven’t even really gotten into self tanners this summer. But I do crave that summer scent. I am so happy NARS came out with a version of their Monoï Body Glow without tint. Honestly, I was afraid I would be too clumsy with the original, dark tan version and get it everywhere, so version II with just oil at least minimizes the impact of my klutziness. The effect is stunning – truly a glow that is only slightly fragrant. You won’t need perfume if you use this oil at the end or right after your shower. The fragrance is neither coconut or vanilla, but stems from the Tiare flower (Tahitian gardenia). It doesn’t have an overly floral note. So charming that in each bottle is an original Tiare flower. The downside is it lacks a dispenser, so be careful when you are pouring. I like to do it right after I finish my shower and pour a bit on each arm and leg and rub in.
