    Oct 5, 2002 by moonsista is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Wellness & Beauty
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Moisturizes nicely, not greasy, absorbs quickly, improves look of skin
    Cons: Gold color can be too much, must wash hands after applying, shows on white clothing

    Summary: As soon as I heard about Nivea Silky Shimmer Lotion, I knew it would be something I wanted to try, despite the fact that I had never tried any Nivea lotions. I love to try new body lotions, and I also love products with shimmer in them. ... read more

  • TO SHIMMER OR NOT

    Dec 19, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Moisture all day long.
    Cons: Does not make all skin types shimmer.

    Summary: The first time I used a Nivea product was about 1953 while living in Germany with my parents. I used to love the smell of the creamy body moisturizer that used to be packaged in a round blue tin with white writing. As I remember for years this was the ... read more

  • Gives you a great all-over glow

    Nov 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light, easily applied, not too greasy, gives a nice glow to your skin.
    Cons: You'll have a glow on your clothes if you don't let it dry first.

    Summary: I bought Nivea Silky Shimmer Lotion after reading several reviews on Epinions. Target is featuring a 13.5 ounce bottle for only $10.00, vs. their usual price of $6.00 for a 7 ounce bottle, so the larger size is a bargain. Rather than repeat the ... read more

    Pros: subtle gold shimmer, okay scent, absorbs quick, hides flaws
    Cons: rubs off your palms, a bit expensive

  • Too much "Shimmer" Hype, but overall, decent

    Nov 4, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There is eventually a shimmer, nice fragrance
    Cons: Shimmer is slight, potential to leave a residue, has to dry on skin

    Summary: When you first watch the commercial on television, it's really appealing. The model appears to have this REALLY intense radiance,and her body seems to just glow as soon as she applies a portion of the lotion to a body part. Not to mention the soft-toned v ... read more

    Pros: gives skin a beautiful golden shimmer, nice scent
    Cons: can get messy, price

    Summary: Well it is almost winter time and I have been searching for something to extend my tan a little longer. Self-tanners just don't look natural on me, and bronzers don't show up. After hearing about Nivea Silky Shimmer Lotion I saw it at Walgreens ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent skin cream, non-greasy, adds a great glow to your skin.
    Cons: Would not work well on someone with oily skin who needs a matte finish instead.

    Summary: This is one of my favorite accidental purchases. I'm a fan of nivea's face and body cream formula that I usually buy in France. Couldn't find it here anywhere, and thought I'd try this instead. Nivea's Silky Shimmer Lotion was a huge surprise; not on ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light gold shimmer, inexpensive, moisturises skin
    Cons: The shimmer wasn't visible at night, only under sunlight, takes 2 coats for shimmer

    Summary: Over the last year or so I've become a little glitter queen. I'm loving all the shimmery, glittery, shiny products that have been coming out. Mostly I like to apply these products to my chest, shoulders and legs. I had seen Nivea Shimmering ... read more

    Pros: Fabulous look for any skin tone!
    Cons: Smudges when dry.

    Summary: I'm a sucker for "the hook". An enticing 30 second blurb for the 5 o'clock news, for 20/20, for Primetime Live - I'm hooked. Same thing for anything having to do with beauty and cosmetics. I saw a TV commercial for this product and was hooked. I went ... read more

    Jul 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: smells very nice and the scent seems to last awhile
    Cons: Does not keep the skin hydrated, leaves hands feeling a little greasy after application

    Summary: Overall this lotion has a very nice scent to it, but it does seem to be more for smell and looks than actual hydration of the skin. I have very sensitive skin and found myself having to reapply this lotion quite often to keep it from drying out. The ... read more

    Cons: none

    Summary: I love this stuff! I first saw it advertised in Vogue and being the beauty junkie I am, I had to try it. I have very pale skin and it gives just a slight "bronzing" effect, especially on my arms. You must make sure to spread it evenly or you can end ... read more

    Pros: Can provide decent shimmer for a reasonable price.
    Cons: Transfers color to clothes, shimmer can "bunch"

    Summary: Having used Nivea's skin firming lotion in the past, I was very excited about this product which included both the benefits of a top notch firming lotion and shimmer. The price per bottle was the same as the firming and so was the scent and consistency. ... read more
