This OFRA’s Dew The Dew Shimmer body Lotion came in my February Cohorted box. I can honestly say I would not have picked this up on my own. In general I like OFRA products, however I always find Shimmer body lotion a little of a strange thing. I know it is used to highlight collarbones and that sort of thing, but honestly I don’t wear a lot of collarbone revealing items in my daily life.
So I just treated this as a body lotion.
Which was quite interesting.
According to OFRA…
A translucent with silver and pearl flecks
Douse yourself in our most tempting glow for year-round vacay vibes with this body shimmer lotion. Drape this ultimate glow on your shoulders, chest, legs, and arms to shine with the intensity of the pearl pigments of our scene-stealing highlighters without the skin becoming too oily or slippery.
The shade I have is moonstone. There are Coppery and topaz shades as well which I think have more of a bronze glow. I suspect I would have more issues using those as all over body lotion. This is translucent and so there is no color to it. The cream is white and the white disappears into the skin like regular body lotion. There are sparkles that remain. It is a subtle sparkle though. What i find interesting is that it does catch the light thorough out the day, but doesn’t wear off like glitter would, And it rinses clean off with no issue in the shower. If it doesn’t catch the light there is no sign of it.
Getting a pic of the shine was interesting because It really depends on light shifting over the skin to shine so it has to be in motion to see.
When the cream goes on it goes on wet and at first I thought, oh no I am going to be a shiny grease ball all day. The wet look faded fairly quickly though and there was no slickness, or greasy feel. It is also really hydrating.
All in all it is a really good body lotion that they put shimmer into.
And did I mention the scent?
It is delectable. There is a light peachy but clean rather than sweet scent to the lotion. It is strongest when first applied but the scent fades back after a minute. You can sort of still smell it if you put your nose to your arm, but that’s it. It is not a lotion scent that travels. So you can enjoy the scent without worrying about causing issues to the scent sensitive around you.
I am not a huge fan of the shimmer but this is a good enough body lotion with such a fantastic scent that i am willing to use it and ignore the shimmer. As it is a light shimmer it is relatively easy to ignore. It will catch the light and glimmer occasionally but it isn’t something I have a problem with. The only draw back I have is the cap to the bottle.
It is a small complaint. The bottle is a square bottle and looks quite elegant. The silver pump is nice as well. The square plastic cap feels a little cheap in the hands. It has the feel of something that is going to crack soon. And to be honest, I will probably deliberately lose it soon because I think it cheapens the look of the product.
As far as complaints go though, it is a minor one. OFRA’s Dew the Dew Shimmer Body Lotion is not a product i would have purchased on my own but I love it and will certainly be purchasing it again.
