Best Shimmer Lotion/ Body Glow
Anyone know a really good shimmer lotion/body glow?

I tried the Nars Body Glow. Cos I heard rave reviews about it..Not too crazy about it..It contains a lot of oil and is not very absorbant IMO.

Thanks

^ Can't find anything similar.

I use some light shimmer lotion, I think it's Jergens... it's pretty subtle, so I myself am curious as to something that has a bit more punch.

I have one from the Body Shop and love it! It smells really nice and isn't too sticky.

I'm currently using Aveeno's Positively Radian Moisturizer w/ soy complex which has subtle gold flecks of shimmer in it and Nivea Shimmering body lotion contains more shimmer (the lotion is already gold when you pump it out)

I want to look like i have a healthy glow but not "darkly tanned"...I'm Asian..so my skintone is pale-medium. Shimmer lotion for some reason isn't giving me as much of an effect i hoped for and i'm afraid of tanner cos i' don't want to be any darker.

Has anyone tried L'oreal's Sublime Glow or Neutrogena's healthy summer glow lotions? Im interested in purchasing one of them..and if anyone knows which one is better, or the effects of using it..it would be great!

Thanks in advance!

Try referring to the tanning lotions thread. There's a ton of helpful advice in there.

I use jergens aswell, I actually like it subtle. I find to much shimmer can leave one looking quite tacky .

That reminds me... this shimmer stuff always seems to find its way onto my boyfriend's carseat... like, it sticks just a bit to the leather... so most of the time, I'm forbidden from wearing it.
