Lumière d’Opale at A BEAUTIFUL WORLD


How much do oui adore Lumiere d’Opale?? Beaucoup. We found this silky, golden tan-hued, deliciously scented shimmer body oil a few weeks ago at A Beautiful World  – and haven’t stopped using it since.

If the rest of the high end, high performance Monaco brand Opale is anything like Lumiere d’Opale then this is a brand to investigate. They apparently do a spectacularly good Hand Cream (also stocked by A Beautiful World) but we haven’t tried that yet…

So as August melts away and September beckons, along comes that ‘switching-seasons’ beauty dilemma again – how does a girl prolong her summer glow?  Our advice? Get a bottle of this.

Not only did we find Lumiere d’Opale works as a tres good way to a) enhance/prolong your much coveted tan and b) infuse your skin with a late summer glow, it gets additional points for it NOT being slithery. Plus it should last a good while because a little goes a very long way. This silky sesame and macadamia-based oil contains lemon, lime and orange extracts so it doesn’t leave a slippery, greasy film on the skin – just a subtle A-Lister shimmer.  And it’s made with 100% natural ingredients.

To top it all off, Lumiere d’Opale contains alpha-hydroxy acids which help release dead skin from the skin’s surface and encourage the production of fresh new cells so it not only makes skin look “glowier” and sun-kissed, it’s actually working on your skin’s appearance at another level.

Tempted?

Lumiere d'Opale


The full low down…

How it works

The organic oils and natural AHA’s work together to moisturise the skin and regenerate tissue elastin and collagen – leaving skin smoother, firmer and with a light yet delicious summer scent. 

How to use it

Pop it onto freshly washed skin to lock in moisture. The unique blend of oils soothes and heals skin, reinforcing the lipid barrier to promote stronger, incredibly soft and subtly shimmering skin. A little goes a long way with this clever oil, so use sparingly.

What’s inside

Macadamia Nut Oil, Sesame Oil and Natural Citrus fruit extracts from fresh lemons and limes. One word of caution, we wouldn’t recommended using this during pregnancy due to the high concentration of essential oils.
