Had my first ever experience with Lush products this week. My online order included Honey Waffle soap which was a complete let down, actually it's so disgusting I'm throwing it out! Then I opened my second pkg of lush product: shimmy shimmy. it's smells not bad but also not the greatest, waaaay too much glitter. Maybe I'll hang on to it for a night out or something fun but just not what I was hoping for at all. I still have another package to open, Sandstone and I'm hoping to like it. I feel like the other 2 purchases were a total waste of my money.

Holy glitter AHOY! I knew it was super glittery as I've been a lushie for many years but wow!
Also it is def vanilla scented but different from vanillary. Its a strong scent, I asked my son if he liked it and he does but it exacerbated my headache. Its okay if you wanna look like a disco ball but I don't so ill probably never use it.

This is a great product for lovers of glitter! Smells great, not too expensive for how long it lasts, overall brilliant!

Give me "G" give me an "I" give me a "LITTER"! Then add excessive exclamatory punctuation!!! Goodness gracious, this is not for the faint of heart. Tinker Bells who dislike anything subtle as for shimmer, rejoice! While this will give you an illustrious aura in evening, you may look like a vampire who's name shall not be spoken in daylight.
Shimmy shimmy is a WONDERFUL product for going out and accessorizing your skin without stabbing it with jewelry and needling in a design, but just as eye-catching. The glitter is extremely fine, but catches light well to give you a very powerful rose-gold glow without the texture of Lustre, which I find a little prone to migration.
The smell is accurate as vanilla and ylang ylang, but I find the clary-sage to fade in time. Timeless and feminine aroma I will catch lingering throughout the night.
For those of you dolls (and hey, maybe even guys, glitter and I do not discriminate) that have dry or sensitive skin like yours truly, you may find that with time Shimmy Shimmy will dry and be a little more abrasive, leaving a sticky residue. To fight this as it usually takes me a while to go through an entire bar, I put on a light moisturizer before hand (layer this with any bannana scents, and it smells DIVINE.)
You can control your application of this as it is in a bar, but trust me that a little goes a Swedish mile, so you get great value for your money. Caution your storage, this glitter will take over like tribbles!

LOVE the smell and texture. HATE the glitter. I don't know what Lush were thinking with this one, they took a potentially great product and ruined it. It's not a subtle shimmer, it's full on glitter. Glitter that gets everywhere, wont budge etc.
It's probably best left for five year old or fancy dress.

God, I can't believe this has such good reviews! I HATE this, mainly because of the glitter that is in it. It's seriously a big ball of glitter. I'm not sure if I just got a dud (because it barely smells like anything either, and is REALLY hard to massage into my skin) but I really dislike this product. It came in a gift set so it's not a huge loss, but I'm sad that I dislike it so much.
Not even sure what to do with it... might pop half into a bath or something... but the glitter... ugh! Too much. And I'm normally a lover of glitter.

I really like Shimmy Shimmy! The smell isn't my favorite and it's pretty strong, but I don't think it smells like old lady. It's just a sweet kind of smell that has grown on me a bit. The glitter is so pretty and lasts a long time. It does tend to rub off on my clothes, but I don't mind glittery clothes. This is definitely a product for a glitter lover like me!

I absolutely adore this!! I buy it everytime I go to Lush. It is so moisturizing and smells amazing.

Glitterbomb Grab some glitter make it rain!
Love this does what it says.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
I love this glorious little glitterbomb! I find that it glides over my skin easily right when I get out of the shower and leaves an explosion of tiny iridescent sparkles. I do end up with my palm covered in glitter, but I rub them on the tops of my feet and then in my hair - problem solved! If you are looking for subtle sparkle - keep looking dolls!

Really LOVED this when I first got it. This is a solid massage bar that's designed to impart a gold iridescence/fine glitter to skin. It's absolutely gorgeous and the scent is fab. The only beef I have with this is that mine dried out fairly quick, making application a little bit of a chore as it went on somewhat chalky. Fresh, it's phenomenal though. It IS glittery, not as in "disco ball glitter", but if you're going for something very understated, you might want to bypass this. While the glitter is fairly "fine", it's still noticeable. That said, not a product I use often, but it's perfect for a night out when you want to add some semi subtle bling to your skin.

I guess people are confused about what this is. This is a glitter bar ! It's basically coco butter and glitter. The only reason it has the coco butter is because it helps adhere the the glitter, and it somewhat moisturizes too. This is not for the faint of heart. You will be a walking glitter bomb. That being said, I love this stuff. The glitter is very very fine. And it deposits alot of it. I use it all over my legs and chest and sometimes arms. To use without looking like a drag queen, I first swipe it ONCE across my chest. Then I rub it in all over my shoulders and chest and neck. This is more than enough for a nice glow. I use the remaining glitter on my hands to rub down my legs and arms and whatever else. Use this sparingly to achieve a nice sparkly glow. Otherwise you will look ridiculous.

SO GLITTERY. Just picking up the bar my hands get covered in glitter. I do love the bar, but I don't find it very moisturizing and very glittery. I mainly use it on my chest and shoulders for some shimmer, the glitter is way to much for my arms and legs.

I am starting to wonder if these are not made equally. The photo suggests a subtle glimmer, but the ones sold at my location are sparkly, not shimmery. They have a lot of chunky glitter in them, which is strange because I feel like it takes away from the affect I am going for. I wanted my skin to look dewy, but the one I have makes it look glittery from the chunky bits. Which is a shame since the soft shimmer present in the bar is lovely. The scent is delicious- it smells almost like the original therapy- lavender and vanilla with a hint of honey. Really delightful. My only other complaint is that the amount your receive is rather small compared to the other bars- especially since you still want to rub this all over your body for a dewy effect.
Overall, this is okay. If my store has ones that are less glittery and more shimmery, I will be all over them. Until then, Iíll pass it by.

I love this massage/glitter bar!!!!!
It smells like vanilla and root beer and it smells so heavenly and divine.
I don't look like a disco ball when i use this and it's not greasy whatsoever. It leaves my skin lightly shimmery and very soft.
I cut mine into a little piece each time i want to use it so i won't waste the whole product.
It has lasted me awhile and i will def repurchase when i am finished the bar i have now.

First off, this is not a regular massage bar!!!
For those complaining about the glitter, that's all this product is meant for!
Do not buy this if you are looking for moisturizing or massaging qualities.
That being said, I LOVE it. A few swipes on my skin and I get lovely iridescent sparkles all over. It's perfect for a night out or special occasions, whenever you want to feel like a princess.
It only takes a few swipes for me to get the effect I want, so I can see this lasting me forever. I doubt I'll even use it up before it becomes too old. The smell is gorgeous, a light vanilla and it's in the shape of a cute abstract heart. I would definitely buy it again, but I doubt I'll ever need to!

I love the glitter bombness cause it's so fun! The colors of the glitter are a mixtures of blues pinks golds which is really pretty! This really really enhances a tan and makes my skin smell sooo good and feel so soft :) Prob better for nighttime wear so if you're self conscious about all the glitter it will be more subtle in a dark nightclub or candlelit dinner. I wore this today to a fancy candle lit restaurant with my boyfriend and he complimented me how glowly my skin looked today :)

This is awesome!
It smells divine, like vanilla and lavender (and American Cream conditioner!)
It melts in your hands and leaves your skin soft, shimmery and glowing like a goddess.
The sparkles are an iridescent purple colour.
I love it for once in a while!

CONS - i dont care for the smell of this and it melted so i have to keep it in my fridge.
PROS- the glitter is such a pretty iridescent blue that stays on your skin will rub off somewhat but not flake or fall off. also not a tacky body glitter look.
OVERALL- will stick to lotion for moisture its a nice alternative to body glitter. lush is a cruelty free company and carries many vegan products!

Good for special events like prom! (I used mine for that) The golden glitter is a bit on the obnoxious side but it's very sexy on the collarbone for a trip to the beach! :D I use it on my legs too for a glistening glow! I wouldn't buy it again anytime soon because a little goes a LONG way. Smells like their American Cream conditioner.
