As children we all loved glitter but now as grown-ups there are only certain times and places we can wear it…so when is the right time to get the glitter out?

What is amazing about the beauty industry in 2019 is everything you used to love playing dress-up with when you were younger has been validated and set free for the grown-up-you to endulge in again. We aren’t so sure about those pink princess slippers though, but the colourful body sparkles are back on trend and allows for even better expression for every woman!

So we figured reintroducing this back into your life might be a slight challenge for you; which products are best for your grown up skin? We’ll tell you know that the glitters found in the kiddies section wont do anything for your adult skin! Another one is when is it actually appropriate to embrace your inner little girl? It’s a no for the boardroom (for now), so we are here to help you out on both questions!

First: What’s the best body glitter?

Well if you are anywhere on social media you have awed at the Fenty body shimmer campaign advert that speaks volumes for body positivity. While that is obviously on everyone’s wish-list, we also discovered a gem in a new brand called ST Essentials, that was birthed on a beach in Cuba. he idea for St Essentials was conceived from a revealing conversation about race between co-founders Temi and Sheena that reminded them about the beauty of being women of colour. St Essentials shimmering body gels were created for those that celebrate their skin and love to  enhance their glow.

With a product offering of 8 shades: Pink Polynesia, Cool Cuban, Malaysian coral , Golden china, Egyptian spice, Sub-Saharan bronze, Colombian cocoa and Flaming Hawaii Avocado oil, the shimmering body gels hydrate and moisturises skin, ensuring a signature sparkle and shine to your skin.

ST Essentials came through and wowed the crowd at our recent Beyond Beauty event!
