The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Shimmer Lotion

One of my favourite releases every year has to be The Body Shop's three festive scents! I'm partial to their Vanilla Bliss scent, but I've also been venturing out into both the Cranberry Joy and Ginger Sparkle scents too. Today I have The Body Shop's Cranberry Joy Shimmer Lotion* ($12 CDN/250ml) to share with you! I normally stick to The Body Shop's Body Butters, so it was fun to try out a different formula from the brand. 

"This festive, limited-edition body lotion gives skin a subtle veil of shimmer and has a fruity cranberry fragrance. Perfect for the party season.
Lightweight moisture
Subtle shimmer
Fruity cranberry scent
Limited edition" - The Body Shop

Notice the shimmer

This Shimmer Lotion comes packaged in a tall bottle with a pump dispenser. This body lotion does have a beautiful silver shimmer in the formula, and it actually does show up quite well on the skin. I think that this product would be perfect to use on a night out or before a holiday party. I haven't used many products from the Cranberry Joy line before, as I never thought that cranberry would be a scent that I liked. However, I've found that I actually do like this tart scent, and it isn't too overpowering! The scent does linger on my skin for about 3 hours. Since this is a lightweight body lotion, it won't give you as much hydration as a body butter would, but this formula sinks into your skin really quickly. This formula is a great option to apply in the morning, since you don't have to wait for it to sink in when you're getting ready to leave for school or work. 

Are you a fan of any of the three holiday scents from The Body Shop? Vanilla Bliss will always be my favourite scent, but I do really like Cranberry Joy now too! :) These scents are only available for a limited time, so definitely do your shopping early!
