Imagine a white sand beach with crystal clear water lapping at the shores and you with perfect bronzed limbs, feeling at peace with the world. This is how the new NARS Tahiti Bronze collection will make you feel! As soon as I set my eyes on this (after a trip to Mallorca no less), I was ready to head straight back to the beach because with one smell of the Monoi Body Glow, this will transport you to the tropical paradise of Tahiti.
This new collection from NARS is really luxurious and will make you feel gorgeous, especially if you are heading out on holiday (or want to feel like you are on holiday)! The Monoi Body Glow II (below) is a multi-purpose body oil with the heady, tropical scents of Frangipani, Ylang Ylang, Tiare Blossom and Vanilla. I am a huge fan of the smell of Frangipani because it reminds me of warmer climates. And this is exactly what I need after the long and dark winter months that have just passed. The oil feels lightweight and the fragrance is strong so you could actually put this on your pulse points and use it as a perfume oil. Just one less thing you need to pack on that holiday.
The Monoi Body Glow I is a shimmering mirage of goodness in a bottle. This is the original Monoi oil which is a cult-beauty buy and which gives the skin the most gorgeous bronzed shimmer. This doesn’t make your skin sparkly or horribly shiny. This is the kind of shimmer you want, the kind that gives you a subtle glow and is perfect to dab on the shoulders and décolletage and smooth over legs if you are baring your legs.
I’ve swatched it below on my hand and you can see how it looks right when it comes out of the bottle.
And then how it looks once it is massaged in. This is a gorgeous splurge to save for a payday or for any holiday prep.
Another amazing product in the NARS Tahiti Bronze collection is the Monoi Scented Candle. The eye-catching thing about this candle and what makes it really stand out is that the wax is black! So this is a true talking piece to display in the home or on your shelf. It is paraffin-free and smells amazing. I could smell it even before I took it out of the box and it’s perfect to transform your room into a Tahitian dream with the fragrance.
So the next time you catch me with bare legs I will certainly be applying the Monoi Body Glow before I go out! See the full collection from NARS here.
