So, the new year is just a day away and Christmas got over just sometime back. But The Body Shop's sale is still on.. and If I were you I'd definitely buy something, well ANYTHING out of the Limited Edition Christmas range because they're all just sooo nice. As in "this" case, I already did and I'm loving what I bought a few days back.. And I wanted you all to try the stuff out too so I'm just going to review THE BODY SHOP CRANBERRY JOY SHIMMER LOTION. :)

My Take about the product:
Okay, so this product was on the top of my wishlist from a long time, so I grabbed it as soon as I saw it the other day in TBS and I'm glad I did. :) It really smells like cranberry juice(yum! :D) and even sticks to all its claims and I love it...:) It has the super pretty silver shimmers in in it.(and honestly it gives me the "princess" feeling every time I apply it!)
The downside is u have to use a very li'l amount or else you'd end up shining like a disco ball. And it's going to last me forever!! :D I wonder if I'll even be able to finish it before it expires. Because.. hey, who needs shimmer everyday, right?! :P and moreover, I'm just going to use it as a "top-up" lotion. :) One more thing, it gives a whitish cast on your palms after you apply it and no, it doesn't look cool.. You need to wash it off immediately or the shimmer gets everywhere. Also, the lotion lasts for almost a good 7-8 hours.

What I LIKE about the product:
What I DONT quite LIKE about the product:
- Amazing fragrance.
- Non greasy.
- Moisturizing enough.(although not super moisturizing for dry skin beauties!)
- Travel friendly packaging.
- Subtle shimmer.(very girly!)
- Long lasting as you will need just a pea sized amount for every use.
Does it go to the BIN or the SHELF?
- Limited Edition.
- The price. :(
- Even a li'l too much will make it look OTT.
- The shimmer transfers a lot and it gets everywhere.
- Parabens free. :)
Definitely, to the SHELF!! If I'm ever going to finish it I'll definitely get myself another bottle of it. I'd say, it's a must try! :) It's the best shimmer lotion I've ever used and smells amazing as well. :)
My Rating: 4.5 on 5.
By the way, check out the TBS Christmas range and get your hands on the Limited edition products before they go away...
Happy Shopping!! :D
