The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shimmer Lotion

Hi dolls,

I am reviewing a latest addition to my vanity and no prizes for guessing, it’s a shimmer lotion. I have not tried shimmer lotions and was more than excited to lay my hands on this one.

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shimmer lotion

What the company claims about the product:

It gives skin a subtle veil of shimmer and has a rich cranberry fragrance. Perfect for the party season.
• 250 ml.
• Lightweight moisture.
• Subtle shimmer.
• Rich cranberry scent.

Main ingredients:

Community Fair Trade Shea Butter, Community Fair Trade Sesame Seed Oil, Cranberry Extract.

Ingredients:

The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shimmer lotion (3)

Price:

Rs. 795 for 250ml ( I got it at 50% discount yippiee).

My experience with TBS Cranberry Joy Shimmer Lotion:

As soon as the SA explained the products on discount and I picked this up quickly as I knew it will work well and the moment she massaged this lotion on my hand, my skin absorbed it quickly unlike those heavy body butters, I was floored with the lovely fragrance and the effect it gave to my skin. I just loved it and picked two of these shimmer lotions, the other one is in their ginger range and I will be reviewing that one soon.

The fragrance of this lotion is so lovely, very girly and sweet like jelly. I love the fact that the lotion disappears in my skin leaving a lovely shimmering effect.

It is packed nicely in a sturdy plastic bottle and has a pump dispenser which has a lock. So, it’s completely safe to travel with. I can already imagine applying this lotion on a lovely beach holiday.
The shimmers just stick to the skin and glisten for a long time and the fragrance also stays for atleast3-4hrs. if I apply this lotion on my arm I keep looking at it and sniffing it.
