SEPHORA COLLECTION Illuminating Bronzing Oil

I have a small problem with Sephora having its own brand because I think it takes space away from other products which, I thought, was the point of the store.  However, they do have some decent products at more reasonable prices.  This is one of them.

I bought it as an "add-on" to get free shipping and it was half-price, $7.00.  I was a little skeptical because I don't want to look like an Oscar statue.  It doesn't give a lot of color but it gives your skin a nice glow like it's lit from within.  Although it has some shimmer, it's not too much.  Definitely more subtle than the Charlotte Ronson!  I have two complaints about this but neither will stop me from using it.  First, the smell is a little musty.  Not the scent a single, forty-something woman wants anywhere below the waist.  Luckily it fades after an hour or so.  Second, it doesn't really give any moisture to your legs which is surprising since it has several oils in it.  Maybe the ingredients for the shimmer cancel it out.  However, I think this could be easily solved by keeping your legs moisturized or applying a small amount of moisturizer first.  It is easy to apply (although check any nearby surfaces after applying for overspray) and dries quickly.  The best part is that the shimmer/sparkle/glitter doesn't rub off much on hands or clothing. 

I plan to use this product any time I show my legs in the spring, summer and fall.
