marula shimmering gold oil

The nourishing body oil that will have you baring a bit more skin.

Written By JAYME CYK


Not quite a self-tanner, but not solely a body oil, African Botanics Marula Shimmering Gold Oil is a nourishing allover essential (you can even use it on your face or in your hair) that reveals a sun-kissed glow you wish for all year long. Infused with a blend of moisturizing oils (think: African marula, moringa, baobab, and Kalahari melon), this hydrator softens and firms the skin, while mother of pearl minerals help to reflect the light and show off a luminous finish. And we can’t help but mention the delicate scent of magnolia, gardenia, orange blossom, and vanilla bean that has us dreaming of lounging seaside in Capri.


“This oil is great for showing off the body. It helps your skin glow and reflect the light. Plus, I love the fresh botanical smell, especially for spring and summer!”—Katey Denno, makeup artist
