Review: I first heard about this product from Erika on Instagram (@missglamerika). Of course, I asked her how she felt about the product and then, BAM! I added it to my Sephora cart and never looked back. The packaging is a bright yellow box with brown typography and teal colored accents - totally summer and tropical vibes. I tried out the smaller jar first which is $20 for 2.5oz and then purchased the large one for $45. The smell is amazing - it is a mix of almond, coconut and all sorts of beautiful beach scents. This is not a weight-loss cream as I have received a lot of questions of whether it slims down certain areas of the skin or body parts. No, this product does not do that. It is a moisturizer that helps firm the skin, that is all. It does have some shimmer particles in it but it is not noticeable unless the sun hits the skin. I honestly like that it provides shimmer and moisturizes and firms at the same time. I am always outdoors during the summer (well, pretty much all year) and this also keeps my skin hydrated and retains its moisture.
Would I repurchase? Already did. Twice going on third time.
