Askmewhats Reviews: The Body Shop Body Shimmer

Hello gorgeous-ness!!!! :D

Thursday is actually my next favorite day after Friday! LOL And I don't need to explain that don't I? *grins*

I haven't used everything that I received from The Body Shop, but I've started to use one of them the moment I received it, which one is it??? Hmm.... you have to read further to know! LOL

WHAT??? You don't want to know???

*drop down knees and beg* "Please don't leave me....."

Here's the cute Seasonal Body Butter Bonanza
3 Body Shimmer Butter packed in a acute gift box!

The gift box is definitely made from recyclable materials
and are environmental friendly.
I am using it at the moment for my cosmetics brushes!

L-R Cranberry Shimmer, Vanilla Spice Shimmer and Warm Amber Shimmer

Askmewhats says ---


  • has a very nice hint of shimmer
  • very creamy and rich, not oily
  • scent stays for approximately half a day
  • cute packaging
  • packaging: I love the simplicity
  • very moisturizing!
  • if you're not into some of the scents included, it will be overpowering for you
  • I haven't checked local Body Shop if they have Body Shimmers available (enlighten me!)


The only body butter I've tried from The Body Shop is their Mango Body Butter and their Almond Body Butter. What I love about The Body Shop is how creamy it is and it does help in hydrating and moisturizing my skin. Don't judge product buy it's size! Because the product is very creamy, just using a small amount can make your skin soft and supple! :)

My favorite out of the 3 is the Warm Amber scent. 2nd would be the Cranberry Shimmer and don't get me wrong, I've had Vanilla as last because I am not into vanilla scents :)

My mom and sister are definitely enjoying the body butter I shared to them!

  • apply after shower
  • try not to use any perfume or cologne, as the scent alone from the body butter is good enough
  • apply onto the cleavage especially when you're wearing a low neckline dress, SEXY!!!! *winks*
  • apply all over your legs especially when wearing a skirt
** I Have a feeling I'm helping out PERVERTS OUT THERE! hahahhahah

Will I repurchase?

Yes, I do purchase Body Butters from The Body Shop :)

Where can you purchase and how much?

The Body Shop website from $25.00 (approx Php1,225) on sale to $12.50 (approx Php 612.00)

Let's show the Body Butters!

L-R Cranberry Shimmer, Vanilla Spice Shimmer and Warm Amber Shimmer

If swiped once
You can see the differences of the colors
But if you rub them, they all look the same!
Lovely hint of shimmer!
Perfect for summer!

Right - With TBS Body Shimmer

  1. I LOLed at your "helping the perverts" comment!! hahaha!! XD

    I love their festive shimmer lotions!! it seems like now they have the body butter version already!! :D You're right... this looks fantastic when applied on the decolete! :D

  2. Jenn, lol you are right, while I was giving the "tips" i'm sure a lot of perverts are there were like "YEAH BABY!!! YEAH!" hahahhaa

    Jessica, I know a lot of people LOVE vanilla scent, too bad I'm not one of them! :)

  3. oh! this is great
    can u give me a tip abt body butter that is not scented?

  4. Hi Yumeko!!! Welcome back!!! :) About unscented body butters, well MOST commercial Body Butters available on shops are mostly scented because most people like it, there's a lot of less scented ones. If you're looking for unscented ones, they are available but most of them are sold by individuals over the internet. I've googled and seen a lot of online stores selling unscented body butter :) But of course with our location, shipping could be a problem, so do check out your local skin stores who sells body butters and ask them if they have unscented versions, most of them do! :) Did I answered your query? LOL

  5. love the shimmers! i have the cranberries body polish, and it is AWESOME!!! and oh so tasty!

    p/s: love the ring :P

  6. i so love the body shop's body butter! i dropped by last weekend they're having a sale on the big ones. but i haven't seen this kind. :) shimmers are sexy! haha!

  7. i have tried their body cream, really moisturising! the shimmer adds sexiness ;)

  8. i have tried their body cream, really moisturising! the shimmer adds sexiness ;)

  9. Prettybeautiful :) Yay for liking the ring, coz I love those rings too! :)

    Sab, I missed their sale! :( and thanks for letting me know, I went to a couple of local Body Shop store but never seen these shimmers! I do hope they bring it down here!

    NicNic, I love the shine, it looks so healthy and natural!

  10. I saw their Moroccan Rose edition today. Very nice!

  11. Wow it does make your skin glowy an shimmery! I'm not a fan of TBS body butter honestly cos they tend to be sticky on my oily-combo skin. Maybe I should try the tester before I purchase :) Anyway, I heart your blue flower ring, LOL.

  12. Sesame, yum..I can smell it from afar! Love it!

    Devi, I know a lot of people who aren't a fan, I guess because of my dry skin! This works wonder on my skin! :) I do wonder how it would work on oily skin though...:D

  13. try the satsuma and the strawberry body butter. theyre both very sweet scented. my faves =)

  14. Jo, thanks for the recommendation, I'll check it out :)
