Shimmy Shimmy

Shim-shimmer with softening butters
4.4 out of 5 Customer Rating
Item No. 01318
Shimmy Shimmy will leave you with sexy, glowing skin. It's shaped like a heart and smells beautifully of vanilla and lavender with a hint of herbal clary sage – just the thing to get hearts racing. The real attraction is the way it makes your skin shine. Skin-softening butters help the glitter stick for a subtle shimmer, giving you a pinky-bronze glow that lights up your skin, (and if you’re lucky, your nights).

Absolute LOVE ❤️

I mix this with coconut oil in a little pot. I put this from head to toe for a nice golden glow. Sometimes I mix it with my foundation for a sun kissed look and it makes my skin come alive.

Smells good

I love the smell of this, but it's really not moisturizing and super duper glittery and gets in everything. Unique product, but not for me beyond the scent. I love the sister Black Stocking tinted shimmer bar but Lush no longer stocks it. This shimmy shimmy is far beyond a bronze and straight up dancer glitter

Great if you like to break out in hives

One of my friends decided to rub this on my arms. The entire area she put it on broke me out in hives. I'm not sure which ingredient it was either. I'm curious what goes into the fragrance ingredient specifically to know if it is something in that.

Shimmy Shimmy is right

I like to apply this to my chest, collar bones, and in the summer legs and arms on a night out. It adds a great shimmer that lasts. It has a moisturizing aspect to it but not as intense as a typical lush message bar.

I only use this on my hands. Its moisturizing and has obvious glitter. It does transfer so be prepared to see it everywhere you touch. It does make you itch a bit like a gorgeous yet annoying winter sweater!

super glittery

I have bought this product multiple times now, it smells amazing and it is extremely glittery if you are looking for a subtle gliter, i wouldn't recommend it but as a Dancer, i LOVE it, it captures the eye and the lights and lasts a long time

If you dont want to look like your skin is literally made of glitter, this is not for you. But for those of you like me, who want people to think I glitter and not sweat, or that I'm part fairy or mermaid, this is for you!!!! I didn't buy it for its scent, or moisturizing power, but instead to look like a vampire from twilight, and this did the job!!!! I love it!!!!! For me, I find it washes off just fine, isn't itchy at all, and lasts all day!

Smells great but thats it. Pure glitter.

Coral Springs, FL | 1 year ago

It has the same scent as American Cream which is my favorite, this scent also REALLY lasts. However, I understand that this /is/ a shimmer bar but in reality its a glittery mess. It isn't even moisturizing in comparison to other massage bars. The glitter is scratchy and gets all over EVERYTHING. My bed sheets, pajamas, clothes I put on the next day, pillows, face, backpack and cat are all covered in glitter. I would like this more if the glitter was a bit less... extreme.

It aint no Goth Faerie'll do!

Remember Goth Faerie shimmer bar?! Sadly we were not blessed by the Lush Goddesses this year and it was nowhere to be found. I don't think it's as good as Goth Faerie but it is pretty close. I am a huge fan of these little shimmer bars! I always make sure to lotion up before I apply these to my skin. I find that it gives that extra glow-y look. As much as I love these, I admit that these are not for everyone. I am willing to put up with the glitter (it sticks to everything) but some folks are not. I love using this on my legs and decolletage. Turns you into a glowing Goddess instantly. It amazes me how well the glitter sticks and stays on the skin..truly fascinating. Glitter will stay on your body until you wash it off. The glitter is extremely fine and does not scratch my skin when using this. I love how small/fine the glitter is, too. I would say this is more glowy than glittery. I like it. No big chunks of glitter here. Oh, make sure you buy one of those silver Lush tins if you're getting any of the solid massage bars! It helps preserve them and keep them from getting hair and other random stuff stuck to it.

Linalool in this bar causing skin irritation and cell death

IL | 1 year ago

Verified Reviewer

I've seen many reviews mentioned about itchy skin. I experience the same problem, and later found this article about a harmful ingredient in the bar. --> In particular, linalool and linalyl acetate, the two main components of lavender oil, can be cytotoxic: in a concentration of .25%, these components cause cell death. (.25% is a fairly small concentration considering that the standard recommended concentration for essential oils is .5%-1%.) A 1991 study found that lavender damages fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen. Just as alarming, linalool and linalyl acetate oxidize when exposed to air, a process that makes the components potentially more irritating to skin (even if that irritation is invisible).
