My experience:

I love sparkle in my life and so when I came across this shimmer lotion, I knew I had to have it. When I first laid my eyes on it, it reminded me of Christmas and vanilla latte since its smells of rich vanilla with a hint of cocoa.. Absolutely sinful I would say. The scent is quite strong, not overpowering which is a good thing and lasts for a good 3-4 hours. If you are fond of vanilla, then you will surely love this.

The product has a medium consistency, not too thin or thick and is easily absorbed in the skin. It has a nude color with light shimmer which on application settles on the skin and gives it a pearly glow. The best part of it is that once applied you will not look like a disco ball which is always a worry, when you are experimenting with shimmer.

However, if less is more for you, then you can take a drop of your regular body butter/moisturizer and mix a drop of the shimmer lotion. This will ensure that your skin isn’t too shimmery. The moisturizer part of it is great and leaves your skin soft. Also be sure not to use it on the face since it won’t sit well; stick to application on the body. According to me, the product is not really great for day use, since the sun makes those tiny shimmer particles very prominent. It’s a best fit for cocktail parties and glamorous night outs.

What I like:

  • The rich vanilla scent which is delicious
  • The light delicate shimmery sheen that it provides
  • Makes skin very soft
  • Its limited edition and I like to collect; perfect fit
  • Use of natural ingredients so no harsh chemicals

What I don’t like:

  • Not for daily use
  • Little on the expensive side
  • Available only in one size (250ml).

Rating: 4.5/5

Summary:

Overall, it’s a great addition to your beauty bag because variety is the spice of life. Moreover, it’s subtle and less shiny than some of the other products that are available. Buy it to remind yourself that everyday can be Christmas.
