This product came inside of a LUSH gift box I had picked up earlier this month (post). I was excited to try it out, especially since it smelled so nicely. I used it during my vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico one evening. It was glitter/shimmer city! The glitter ended up on everything and everyone; my husband, sister, and even my sister’s boyfriend had it on them. It was pretty funny. The glitter lasts a long time, which can also be a con for some people.
The shimmer did make me feel like a teenager. I will probably end up giving it to my niece. It’s just not for me. It did look nice after it began to wear off. Good thing it came in that gift box, otherwise, I wouldn’t have picked it up. I also think it would probably work better on a lighter skin tone.

Make your skin shimmer.
This one gives you vanilla-scented glowing skin. It’s shaped like an abstract heart and smells rather beautifully of vanilla and lavender, with a hint of herbal clary sage. Shimmy Shimmy is considered the crowning achievement in Helen’s experiments with fragrance.
Make your skin shine.
The real attraction is the way it makes your skin shine. The glitter is very subtle, but ever so effective, giving your skin a pinky-bronze glow that lights up pale, wintery skin.
Lavender oil is antiseptic, antibacterial, deodorizing and relaxing.
