Mario Badescu Summer Shine Body Lotion is a Vitamin A enriched, greaseless body lotion with silver shimmer particles. It promises to reduce the appearance of dull, dry skin with natural moisture retaining ingredients like beeswax and peanut oil. This was another item in the press bag at the blogger preview for The Makeup Show.
I decided to give it a test run yesterday and applied it to my arms and legs. To me the shimmer is more than subtle but then again I feel like I just might be too old for shimmer on the body…lol. It smells really good though—like a slight hint of cocoa butter and almond. The formula is lightweight–it moisturizes well without feeling heavy which is a perfect combo for summer. And get this—yesterday I also got caught in a severe thunderstorm with crazy winds. I got drenched but even after that most of the lotion still remained and I didn’t get that funny moisturizer mixed with water feeling on my skin. I just wish the shimmer wasn’t so obvious, but that’s my personal preference. The smell has me hooked though–I wonder if they have a body lotion with the same scent without the shimmer…I must check out their other body lotions to see.
$10 for 6 oz; $22 for 16 oz.
