Just in time for spring is the Sun FX Body Shimmer which I received from Beauty Army in my March Kit. I was pretty excited about this – what goes better with a cute skirt than pretty shiny legs. I didn’t really know what to expect but I figured it couldn’t be too bad.

This product is intended to be hydrating and illuminating. The cream is a medium thickness that looks sort of like a pearl finish.  It is mildly moisturizing but not intensively, I personally wish it had been more moisturizing.  It smells like almonds, and it is very pleasant.

How about the shimmer? Well, when it is first rubbed on (and a little goes a LONG way) it is intensely shimmery.  After about 20 minutes the shimmer disappears and goes away completely. I would have preferred that it stay longer – what’s the point of applying shimmer if it just goes away?

Would I buy it again? No, it wasn’t so amazing for me to spend more money on

Will I finish the sample? Yes, might as well.

Here is a photo of my skin with the cream and without the cream so you can see the shimmer difference.
