I don't think there is anyone who doesn't like the fragrances, body lotions and body creams from Bath & Body Works. Recently, they had 75% off on most products due to their annual sale. Though there are lots of BBW products in my beauty stash, I couldn't resist myself from shopping again. There I was, at the huge BBW annual sale and picked some amazing products for myself at the lowest prices I could ever imagine. One such purchase I made was Velvet Sugar Shimmer Bomb and the main reason for this purchase was, I wanted to try the shimmer range from BBW. In fact I never saw shimmers at the BBW store where I usually shop from. So this was definitely something I didn't want to miss buying this time. Its actual price is 14$ but due to the 75% off annual sale, I got it for 3.50$ only. The quantity and price were just too good to loose out on this deal and I am glad that I didn't let it go. To know the pros and cons of this shimmer, read on!

My Experience With Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar Shimmer Bomb:

The most attractive part of Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar Shimmer Bomb is its packaging. It looks bright and vibrant, just like you would love your shimmer packing to be! I didn't think it was a shimmer at first because the store I visit never had any shimmers. The moment I realized it was a shimmer, I was super excited to try it out. This was my first shimmer from Bath & Body Works. The tube is pink in color and is transparent enough to know how the shimmer looks like. It has a flip cap which allows the required amount of shimmer to come out. But the flip cap was a bit loose for mine. Though I did not experience any leakage problem, I was not happy with the flip cap for this product. I am not sure if this happened only for my piece or for all.

The shimmer is light pink in color with lot of shimmer particles in it. I usually use body lotion for my hands and when I used this Shimmer Bomb I skipped the lotion part and used this directly. When dispensed, the aroma of the shimmer is quite strong. It has a very fruity fragrance, similar to that of strawberries and jasmine. The shimmer is gel like in consistency and once applied on the hands, the aroma reduces and fades away quickly. I wish at least a bit of its fragrance stayed for sometime, but alas! The shimmer spreads easily on the hand and gets absorbed quickly into the skin. The shimmers spread evenly and I like the fact that there are not too many shimmers. For people who prefer to have low shimmer look, this is a great buy. It is just perfect for a decent evening wear look.

The only disappointment with this shimmer is, it doesn't provide much nourishment to the skin the way other BBW body lotions and creams provide. As a shimmer, it works well. But if you are looking for a heavy shimmer, then this might not go great with you. I loved it and I hope to purchase more of them in future.

Pros Of Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar Shimmer Bomb:
  • Beautiful and attractive packaging.
  • The quantity lasts for a long time.
  • Fruity fragrance resembling strawberries and jasmine.
  • Shimmer spreads easily and evenly on the skin.
  • The shimmer gel gets absorbed quickly and leaves a decent shimmery look.
  • Perfect for a decent evening wear.

Cons Of Bath & Body Works Velvet Sugar Shimmer Bomb:
  • The flip cap was a bit loose.
  • People who prefer heavy shimmer will be disappointed.
  • Doesn't provide much nourishment to the skin.

Final Note:

I love this shimmer in spite of its cons. I would love to explore more of shimmers from BBW. This is surely worth a try for everyone who loves a bit of shimmer look.
