LOVE THIS!!!! Smells amazing! Peppermint definitely is one of my favorites, along with the Champagne & Red Hot of course! I miss these so much! UD should bring them ALL back! :D

I love the UD body powders so much but this one was a tad disappointing. The shimmer is way too pale for me and was silvery-white despite the pinkish pigment. The scent is very cool- a frosty Peppermint Patty-type mint and it tastes awesome but I absolutely agree with what the other reviews said about this needing to be a sweet-vanilla+mint, not toothpaste-mint. Since I can't wear this one, I guess I'll just have to keep it in the bedroom : X haha. The container is very cute, but inconvenient for the contents. Be careful when you open it!

These are great, but you don't need every colour. Peppermint came out looking like just a silver shimmer on me. I was a little disappointed the pink didn't really show, but these are def great for giving your body a real shimmer!

I'm only giving this one 3 lippies because the mint is all wrong for a body powder. IMO it should be a light, sweet mint, but instead it's a toothpaste/altoid kind of mint. Like a reviewer said below; it's not supposed to be a breath freshener for your boyfriend :P I do like the shimmer though, it's great for a night out, and the smell isn't too terribly strong and doesn't last long.

I loved this shimmer! its a very pale shimmery pink and is perfect for spring or summer, and also goes great in winter! it smells good, like mint, and tastes good too! lol, i would buy again!

Mmmm smells nice, looks nice, tastes...well, it is a cosmetic after all. I think I prefer the look of Gingersnap and Cake to this one, but all of them have very fine glitter that makes skin look radiant and dewy. It's not an essential but it's fun for a night out.

Boyfriend loves this! It's a gorgeous pale pink shimmer that I doubt looks bad on anyone. Puff is very effective.

This smells and tastes yummy. Wouldn't pay full price though.. I picked it up at TJ Maxx for $6 ;)

Wow, pretty!! A subtle but iridescent shimmer that looks good on my tanned Asian skin. It smells like a minty peppermint, but has a sweeter mint taste. Super!! Though the amount of 9 grams compared to 18 of cocoa seems a bit unfair for the same price, the teeniest amount goes a looong way for me! I still think it's worth it =) This'll probably be discontinued before I use up mine, so I won't buy again. Nonetheless, it's gotten me wanting Marshmallow, so I'll probably buy that! ^^;; Oh yeah, the packaging DOES suck a little ... the box had lots of random glitter particles - meaning it spreads around a lot. Also, the cardboardish container is easy to pop open. It makes me want to transfer the product to a plastic screw-top container in order to prevent spills in case I drop the box. Other than that, the powder is fantastic!!!! XD
EDIT 10/31/06: I lied. I bought another one cos I love it so! But the packaging sucks worse than ever .. I spilled at least a gram onto the carpet by just trying to open the container. Sigh ...

I love this product, gives a nice shimmery sheen and smells and taste exactly like peppermint, so yummy! Has a bigger powder puff but with less product at 9 grams, the container is cute but the flavour is the best thing about it. It actually does make your mouth minty fresh!

I think this has to be one of my faves, it tastes exactly like peppermint its not very sweet but its super minty which i love. the shimmer is a lightish silvery pink but looks surprisingly good on olive skin. The packaging is cute but is a smaller size at 9grams. the big powder puff is great too. I have cake,honery,red hot and peppermint. So far red hot and peppermint live up to thier name.

I got this to wear for the Christmas season last year - peppermint duh!! I love it, such a pretty pink shimmer and both smells and tastes dead on like its namesake. It looks so pretty on the shoulders and collarbone!! I'm stocking up now that they're being discontinued!!

Ok, here we go:
So, I'm on my way to collecting all of the body powders, and I am going to give this a four out of five because:
Yes--this DOES smell and taste like peppermint--it's dead on--but its a little TOO pepperminty--I would like it if this were a bit sweeter--I want my boyfriend to kiss my shoulders and taste something delicious and sweet, I dont want him leaning over to lick me in order to freshen his breath!
Also--becuase this package is so flat and round, there is a LOT LESS powder than the other UD highlighters, for the SAME PRICE. I got this in a swap, so I cant complain too much, but still! I think if you're paying $25, you should get your money's worth.
Other than that, this is a gorgeous, shimmering silvery-pink color that I love. If it wasnt discontinued, if I ever ran out, I would definitely buy it again. It looks gorgeous and, I mean, it does taste and smell like a mint. I would just rather taste sweeter, that's all. So--yes--I would recomend this--it's beautiful and tasty--just go buy it, ok? Review it yourself! *lol*
*edit* I LOVE this puff. It is a lot bigger than the puff for, say, Gimlet, so you get a lot more coverage and it's much easier to apply. I can just cover the puff in powder, dust it over my chest and shoulders and put it back instead of shaking the box a million times and dabbing powder over square centimeter at a time with the Gimlet puff. This puff is bigger and softer and just wonderful! It's definitely the most practical, so unless you're a UD collector like me, I would definitely buy this powder first--if you're looking for a highlighter and you want to buy one of the UD powders, go for this one. You'll definitely be able to use it more skillfully and with this powder, you'll get everything you would want out of this line: dead-on taste and smell, beautiful shimmer, and easy application, cute packaging--get the peppermint!

I enjoy this product, but I wouldnt go as far as saying I love it. Pros : Cute packaging, great taste (I love peppermint) and nice sparkle. Cons : OVERLY FREAKING EXPENSIVE, but I lucked out and found it at TJ Maxx, and it kinda makes me feel sticky. Perhaps thats just me, but when I brush it on my chest, it feels the slightest bit tacky. If I see it again for six dollars, I might buy it. But a little goes a very long way, so I dont even think I'll really need to. Definately wouldnt pay the 25 dollars UD charges.

This is by far my favorite UD shimmer so far. In fact, I am buying another online as I write this! Shame about it being discontinued. The shimmer is a light silvery-pink color, with rather fine glitter specks, not gross chunky ones like the Caramel shimmers. The scent is like peppermint candy (the red-and-white round kind). The taste is what really sucked me in. This is a dead ringer for real peppermint! The taste is very strong, and it only takes a bit to get the point across. I havent tested this out on my DH yet, but I would bet you anything he goes nuts.

I have had my eye on this product for a while. I love the packaging with a furry animal-print puff. I managed to get this really cheap, so I also bought the ginger-snap one. Peppermint comes in a flattish, round, white shimmery box, with pink tassle on top and of course the lovely puff. The powder inside looks pale pink with silver shimmer (once on it is mostly white/silver shimmer that you notice). It is really shimmery and when I wore it one night, I managed to get it over everything in the house as well as my self, so beware of the glitter! The smell of this product is quite strong in the box, but once on I didn't even notice it. I really liked this product and will probably buy more in another scent, if sparkle is your thing, then you should get this!

the package is cute and the scent is great. only problem is you get it all over you when you use it.

I prefer this packaging against the other ones in the line - it's flat and round, versus the long and tall. The leopard puff is always a nice accessory. The scent, however, leaves much to be desired. It's not unpleasant, per se, but it could use a whole lot of sugary scent to it. While it is nice to have a scent that's spot-on for peppermint, if I wanted somebody to lick this off of me, I'd want them to taste something sweeter. It's a nice shimmery baby pink, so if nobody's planning on licking this off of you, it's a great highlighter.

Out of all the UD powders, this is my favorite. I love the large leopard puff and how it looks on my skin... I just makes me feel good!!!so pretty on the shoulders and chest area when wearing tank tops, so subtle...

The good: cute packaging, The Bad: Everything Else. Smells and tastes like Tums. However, I did get it at T.J.Maxx for $6, so I guess I will just swap it away.
