After application, your skin looks tanned and well bronzed.
How To Use?
I shake the bottle as shimmer and oil are separated from each other. I took a pea size oil drop in my palm and massage onto my arms.
You need to apply oil directly on the bare parts of the body and had to wait at least 5 minutes before wearing clothes.
My Experience: As the name goes “dry oil”, I was reluctant to apply in summers. I started using the shimmer dry oil during the monsoons. I was not sure how my body will look after application so I started with my arms.
Shimmering dry oil acts gives a subtle glow and shimmer to my light skin tone. Shimmering oil moisturizes my skin as well as enhanced my tan giving a quick body bronze effect.
At first glance I was very happy with the results and instantly fell in love. My skin has even tone and a shimmery effect overall. I had used dry oil in winters again and still happy with the results.

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4.5/5
Will I Repurchase?
Definitely I would buy again but the bottle seems to be used for more than 3 years.
Do I Recommend?
I would definitely recommend all ladies to give it a try for sure.
Overall Summary: Shimmering dry oil moisturizes and gives sheen glow to skin. My skin remains hydrated for 7-8 hours without the need of moisturizer and shimmery glow is maintained.
Its best for the normal, dry or combination skin but not suitable for oily skin. Its best for light colored or yellow skin tone people but dark skinned beauties can skip it.
Shimmery dry oil gives even skin tone. People who want to have tanned look should consider it. I have been using it since sometime for now and bottle still seems full as very less oil is required.
