Very cooling, good to put on after a long day out in the heat. Keeping it in the fridge is a "cool" idea (no pun intended). Not moisturizing, as seems to be the common complaint. I wouldn't buy it but it was a nice GWP.
I had no idea this product was discontinued. Anyway, this lotion was great because it really did add a beautiful lustre to the skin. It left a beautiful sheen that looked perfect in the light. That however, was the only bonus. It didn't moisturize me very well at all. It was a super light lotion and wouldn't get the job done if you had very dry skin. It was good for layering on top of something else. I just finished the tube I had last night. Guess now even if I wanted to repurchase, I couldn't.
I take one lippy off for the price of this, kind of high for Clinique (retailing over 20 euros here). But I love the product itself. The non-sticky, non-greasy formula and no perfume added, which means that you can use it right after waxing your legs.
The lotion sinks right in and leaves the skin a moistured, but very clean feel. I heard that this lotion will soon be out of the commerce, what a pity.
I really liked this body lotion. Great in the summer when slathering it on after it was stored in the fridge, but putting too much on made me a little sticky. I still have some GWP's lying around somewhere and I'll have to dig them out for this summer.
So sad this product is discontinued.... I love how this lotin made my skin glow!
At the time I purchased this, the shimmer craze was just beginning, and shimmering body products hadn't really made it to the drugstore yet. This lotion absorbs quickly and gives skin a nice shimmery but not glittery appearance. It would be perfect if not for two problems: 1. It is pricy. 2. More importantly, I can't use it every day, as I would like to in the summer, because the spearmint, grapefruit, and lemon extracts irritate my skin when I use it regularly. Since the drugstore now offers cheaper, non-irritating shimmering lotions, I won't be repurchasing this.

This is the best light lotion I have ever used It is perfect for warmer weather when you don't need a heavy lotion. It has a pleasant, minimal scent and soaks in quickly to leave your skin smooth and not at all sticky. If it came in a pump bottle it would be even better.
This is the ideal spring/summer moisturizer. Like other reviewers said it gives a small amount of moisture, which is perfect for me in the summer. I put this in my fridge to intensify the cooling effect. I took off one lippie b/c it is a bit pricey. I do love the cool tingly feel of it!
I got it as a gift with my Clinique order... I didn't notice the shimmer until afterwards and that made me like the moisterizer (what can I say, I'm into shiny things!). It doesn't do much for moisterizing so I'd probably only use it in the summer when I'm wearing my short sleeves and shorts/skirts :)
The light shimmer to this lotion is fabulous for summer. And the cool feeling after applying is great. However, it's pricey and doesn't do that great of a job actually moiturizing my skin. There are cheaper alternatives.
