I ordered the Man Ray as soon as it became available online. I was so excited about this product for summer. It just came in today, and I was disappointed.
The packaging is plastic so it's great for travel. Size is slightly bigger than the Matchmaster. As a body oil, it is great. Moisturizing and not greasy at all. It absorbs really fast into the skin. Love that part! My disappointment comes from the lack of pigment and longevity of the shimmer. I was hoping this would give a nice, golden glow on the skin. While I am aware this is not a full-on bronzer, I felt it would be an easy job for the Man Ray shade to achieve that on an NC40 like myself. But sadly, all I (and my husband) saw were glitters - not shimmer, but glitter. And the glitters faded away quite quickly, say less than 30 mins without contact with anything.
3 stars because as a body oil, it's fabulous. But as designed it should give, a sheer sheen and sexy gleam - unfortunately, I didn't get that.

Review 3 for Bronzing Oil

Tried both colours, lighter on my arms and darker on my legs... not greasy after it has a few moments to absorb, and the glitter is subtle indoors - outdoors is a wonderful glow. I woke up the next morning and still had a glow. Laid out in the sun, and WOW did it attract the suntan! Ordered 4 bottles of each colour. I am SOLD.

This product is definitely great for summer and laying out at the pool or beach to show shimmering glow!

I wanted to love this product. I really did. I bought both shades. They are equally gorgeous. HOWEVER...I tested out one of them an the back if my hand while sitting in my truck. I got out to go inside my house, and by the time I got upstair all the shimmer was GONE! It was a matter of minutes!! I didn't even come in contact with water!! Where the heck did all the shimmer go :(
