Most Helpful Positive Review Best Shimmer lotion to-date
So Ive tried my share of sparkly lotion. This has since become a fast favorite. The shine is stubble but cute. The glitter does not leave your skin. I wore this to all of my college classes around campus in 85 degree weather sweating terrible, and the only reason you would have know I had sat in a chair was probably the sweat. There was not a glitter speck in sight left on any furniture or clothing throughout the day. It also wasnt displaced by my sweat at all which was a big plus since my dorm has no air conditioning and I thought it might get everywhere. Turns out my worries were all for nought.
This lotion absorbs quickly and doesnt leave you a sticky mess either. Most lotions especially ones with glitter tend to be a bit sticky (unicorn snots glitter sunscreen for example) in an effort to contain the glitter but ends up spreading it everywhere. I was moisturized but not a slick lotion mess. My hands werent sticky at all and after a few seconds unless you saw me apply it or saw the sparkles you would have know idea I just put some on.
Now I am also particular about smells. If its too strong or artificial it will trigger me to get a migraine. While this has a strong smells it doesnt smell super artificial. It smells like I just opened a bag of shredded coconut. I had my college dorm Roomate try this (she actually hates the smells of coconut) and she liked it too!
So I would say this would be my new go to for festivals and concerts, and that if needed (theres a lot of product in this bottle, like ALOT) I would buy this again!
Most Helpful Critical Review Less Shimmer and More Glitter
I just want to start by saying that I received this lotion from Influenster to test and review. I have used Sheamoisture in the past but have never tried the Shimmering body lotion.
The formula itself is nice and creamy. It is super moisturizing and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. It smells like a mixture of coconut and hair products (Weird, I know, but thats what it makes me think of).
My major fault with this lotion is the shimmering aspect of it. I though it would give my skin a soft glow; kind of like an all over body high light. Unfortunately, this lotion just coats you in giant specks of glitter that rub off on all of your clothes and get lodged in places glitter should never, ever come in contact with.
I will continue using Sheamoisture lotions but will probably give this shimmering lotion to my 5 year old niece who enjoys pretending to be a fairy princess.

dee from Petaluma CA
picked this up because I thought it would smell delicious n it had shimmer in it for the summer smelled good when I opened it but as soon as I started to rub it all over my body a few mins later it started to be really itchy on the places I put the lotion on this lasted for a a day or two even in the shower I scrubbed n scrubbed hoping to get the product off my skin..... def won't be using this again
Coconut from Orange County
Girls who want a beachy coconut smell this isn't the one. Legit smells like coconut oil from the grocery store and if you're looking for a luxurious creamy lotion... yea this isn't that either.. it feels almost instantly dry after you put it on.. oh and you can barely see the shimmer hope this helps
Hazel from Miami
It has no shimmering effect whatsoever!! Smells great if you like coconut scents but definitely missed the shimmering effect they label the product to have. If you buying this product to have shimmering effect, don't!!
Smells great and gives your skin a nice shimmer
Sandra from Indianapolis, IN
I use daily after showering. Leaves my skin soft and smelling great. And it gives my skin a nice shimmer that's really nice in the rays of the summer sun.
Oh so soft
Jess from Pittsburgh
This has the perfect amount of sparkle, scent is nice and my skin feels so soft when I use it. In love.
Not as shimmery at I thought
Aiether from Tennessee
I'm actually quite pleased with the smell, even though I'm not a huge fan of coconut. It makes me think of the conditioner. It feels very moisturising. I have dry skin so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the lotion is thicker than most. The shimmer was different than what I expected. I expected punch in your face glitter but instead was greeted with subtle shimmer. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, even though it's not what I expected
She loved this product.
Mal Gal from Jackson, MI
She loved them, smells so good.
Product Is Not As Advertised
Deasl411 from Colorado Springs, CO
There is not a trace of shimmer in this product. At best, it is just an okay lotion. I purchased specifically for the shimmer feature and I am completely disappointed.
I broke out.
kat from Davenport
it smelled good, and I was way excited but I broke out right away.
Regular Lotion with a twist
Bianca from undisclosed
I was a little scared to use this lotion because I thought it will be so glittery. But its just a regular lotion with a twist. It contains gold sparkle and you can only see it when you really look closely so if you are scared because you see shimmering lotion don't be. I really like it because it has coconut smell and it make you glow in the sun. Give it a try.
Fun and effective
Mela from undisclosed
Coconut always works wonders for my skin and this lotion was no different, reminds me of a classic coco butter. However, the shimmer provides something fun and different. As someone who wears glitter regularly it was perfectly subtle.
Nice scent, nothing special in moisturizing.
LaVerne652 from undisclosed
Totally average in all respects. Nothing wrong with it and nothing special about it. Adorable mild sweet scent. There is nothing special in its ability to moisturize skin. The shimmering consists of miniature gold specks that you have to strain to see but are attractive when you do. I bought almost 2 dozen Shea Moisture items but this is only Shea Moisture product I would not purchase again.

This body lotions leaves a nice subtle shimmer and is lightly moisturizing. The scent is light and not overpowering. It contains coconut oil but does not leave your skin feeling greasy. I would recommend this product
a lil bit of sparkle
justjuliasjourney from undisclosed
I love the scent and the sparkle. However, my bottle will clog up easily. Its not a make or break for me, Id still buy this product after my bottle runs out.
Great Scent too much sparkle
nicolem7fb9 from undisclosed
I am in love with the scent of this product. I am also very obsessed with anything that reminds me of summer. Im just not a fan of how sparkly this product is. I felt more like a disco ball than shimmery. I have been using it now on my 5 year old and she loves the sparkles :)
worldofari from undisclosed
This lotion is the bomb! I really love the fragrance. Its soft and not overpowering. The lotion itself leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized.
Smells great, want more sparkles!
alainac17 from undisclosed
I really like this brand and so trying this moisturizer didnt disappoint, as usual for this product. Smells good, isnt too heavy but I wish there was more sparkle!!

Looks like I have little shimmers on me. Looks amazing on the skin, smells good and does not leave my skin feeling oily! Would recommend 100% for the summerSheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Shimmering Body LotionWarm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion
love this moisturizer!
taras4128 from undisclosed
Truly love this lotion. It is heavy enough to deal with dry skin but light enough to not feel like a body butter. It leaves no residue just a very subtle shinmer! Highly recommend :)
Shea Moisture Shimmer Lotion
mckennap1 from undisclosed
I received this lotion complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. I typically steer clear of any products with shimmer because I have very sensitive skin, but this product was perfect for me and didnt cause any irritation. Adds a subtle glow to your skin and smells amazing!
callme_d from undisclosed
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this lotion and honestly all of Shea Moisture products. I tend to use this on a beautiful day out so my body can shimmer in the sun or club lights . It keeps my body very moisturized . I would definitely recommend.
kristina95 from undisclosed
I love how easily this product absorbs into the skin. It feels great on the skin and it isnt too glittery. Its the perfect amount of shimmer. The pump was a little finicky but I was able to get enough product out.
ellerunger from undisclosed
This lotion not only smells amazing, has light shimmer, and is lightweight, but it also brings the moisture to my skin that i need in the winter!!!
love love love
carolineg3 from undisclosed
Sheamoisture never disappoints me, so I wasnt really surprised when I tried this lotion and loved it. The moisture lock-in is 10/10 and the smell is amazing. It is long lasting and I would recommend to anyone.
a little goes far
alyh1 from undisclosed
I first noticed the scent is strong but pleasant. Shimmer is subtle and not overly wow factor so if your not a glitter gal then this would be that touch of sparkle Id recommend for wanting a bit of glitz in your life especially on holidays. It has a really easy to re-lock pump which is great for travel too; pumps really nice and spreads with ease and found you dont need much to coat a large area like 1 to 3 pumps for upper body as an example. Its got good ingredients as well that make me happy to have this in my bathroom
