The first thing to say about Bourjois Sunlight Elixir is that you will smell beyond delicious. In fact, people might lick you. Sunlight Elixir is the Bourjois version of an exotic fragrance dry oil, and it’s outstripping most that I’ve smelled in the past in terms of tropical loveliness. Weirdly though, it’s hard to say what it does smell of – there are no notes indicated – so I get vanilla, fruit, flowers, holidays and suncream; that’s all I can tell you!
It’s tinted with bronze – I realise I’ve made it look as though I’ve grown a giant bronze nipple on my arm – and it’s a very golden shade, although for my taste, over-generous with the sheen. Once you rub in though, you get a gorgeous, warm, light bronze colour, albeit with some sparkles.
My camera isn’t picking up the twinkles, but they’re there. I’d be tempted to mix Bourjois Sunlight Elixir with some other body oil to lessen the sheen, but that’s a personal taste thing. If you want pearly sheen shot legs with a natural looking veil of light golden bronze, you will have it. I think it’s still a few weeks til launch, but do keep your eyes peeled for it.
