Beauty Marked! A Shimmery Body Cream

Last week I told you about my old time favorite Nivea Silky Shimmer Body Lotion, $9, that I've been using for about five years now. Although I adore the way it glistens perfectly in the light, I think it's time to try something new. I mean let's face it: they've made so many shimmery body creams within the last five years that I'm bound to be missing out on something fab if I don't start experimenting ASAP!

You guys were asked to go beauty marking to help me find a new awesome shimmer body lotion. I've checked your finds and I really like what I see. Here are a few that I've chosen to feature!

Beauty Mark #1 found by GirlInPink, is called Jergens Soft Shimmer Skin Radiance Moisturizer, $6. If this cream is anything like Jergen's original formula, I am sure it's great. Jergen's products have an awesome fragrance, they moisturize deeply and leave your skin feeling soft and supple. This one is infused with light reflectors for subtle radiance. I can't wait to try it.

To see a couple more shimmer body lotions,

Beauty Mark #2 found by swwonder, is called Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Gloss, $6. It is a super rich body cream that illuminates skin with a soft shimmer. It is made from pure cocoa butter and Vitamin E to ensure that your skin is left hydrated and smooth. Thanks for this suggestion, sswonder, you certainly can't beat this price!

Beauty Mark #3 found by foreverdizzy, is called Cranberry Shimmer Body Lotion from The Body Shop, $16. Just the sound of this is exciting. I love cranberry anything! This is a light and creamy moisturizer that absorbs quickly into the skin. It deeply conditions and leaves your skin feeling silky, smelling great and glowing.

Loreal Sublime Glow is hands down the best for your money. Doesn't have that smell of self tanner, the shimmer isn't overpowering, and it works. I get comments all the time on my skin, and a bunch of my friends use it now too!! It's awesome!

I use the jergens as well, although use it sparringly. A little goes a long way. The first time I used it I looked like I should be in a 70's porn movie.

The smell of Palmer's anything makes my head start to hurt within 3 seconds, but I do love the Nivea lotion!

I used Jergens last summer, and it did smell funny, and made me feel kinda sticky too. I switched to Dove this year, and so far so good!

IMO, the jergens stuff doesn't smell too good... i was uncomfortable putting it on right before leaving the house unless i followed it with a better scented lotion

Cubiclequeen, I was just about to write about that. It's very subtle and amazing at moisturizing. My fave!

One tip for the shimmer lotion - don't put it everywhere, otherwise you will look like a disco ball in the sun. Accent a body part such as your legs, your arms or your cleavage. But pick just one.

For a subtle shimmer, try Olay Quench. Now, it isnt marketed as a shimmer lotion but I put it on every day and there is definitely a subtle shimmer to it. I hope this is a good mark for those out there who want moisture and subtle shimmer. I highly recommend Olay Quench. It's replaced some long standing favorites of mine.
