Nice Shimmer Skin Glow

MissDimples
Location: Central Coast, CA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “non sticky”

I just bought the body balm and I love it! Love the packaging and there is two colors available red and pink. I got the red since i liked it better. Next I'm planning to buy the oil and combine these to great products together to get a maximum glow when I go out in the night

Gorgeous smell

Josiejo01
Location: Uk
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium

I was bought this years and years ago, and loved it. Bought again last week and is as gorgeous as I remember. As I walked past husband and daughter on way out after I put it on, they both said how lovely I smelt! Scent lasts as well, and I could still smell it slightly in the morning. Would have given 5 stars if pad was bigger, as this and tin seem to have shrunk. Bathina spray oil is on my wish list! I wish there was a perfume of this too.

Smells amazing and makes you SILKY SOFT!

Acdeleon12
Location: Kansas, USA

Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “smells amazing, silky soft, tan”

I seen this product at Sephoras a few times so I decided to try it out and after that I was like "THIS IS A MUST HAVE" and after that I literally cant live without it. Smells amazing and feels even better. If you like to tan this is a product you have to get to accentuate that tan!

Looks, feels, and smells great!

Renee618

Love that it's: “silky, soft, smells good”

I tried this product out in the store and finally bought myself one recently. I usually only wear it on weekends when I go out, and EVERY time I have I've received compliments from friends that I smell good, look good, skin is soft, etc. Just a dab is all I need on my decolletage and shoulders, and the legs too if they're exposed. It's just the perfect amount of shimmer without being glittery, and the scent is wonderful. In fact, I'm going to order the Bathina body oil spray and hope it smells as good as this!

Wonderful.

Rosealie
Location: Melbourne, Australia

Love that it's: “silky, Illuminating”

I've heard so much about "take a picture...it lasts longer..." and knew that I just had to give it a go, even though the price is a bit expensive for a body balm. It definitely did not disappoint. The fragrance is a very nice floral scent and lingers long after application. The balm makes my skin look healthy and radiant and I definitely don't regret buying this product. I will definitely be repurchasing after my one runs out.

A new must for me

Katiuska
Location: Madrid, Spain
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “lovely smell, very nice box”

I'd been hearing and reading so much about this one that I wanted to know whether it was as good as all the gossip said it was, first hand. And I already wanted to buy it last year, but, alas, it was already sold out; apparently, it is a very sought-after item by TV presenters in Spain and they beat me to it (buying this item, I mean). However, this year I decided I would not let it happen again and bought it. I like the box very much; the smell, as far as I'm concerned, gets top marks; the shimmer is very nice, mother-of-pearlish, though not really perceptible, at least to me, though the feel to the skin once you apply this is quite nice. I'll surely get another once I'll run out of the one I've still got.

A shimmer for adults!

Mama2Many
Location: Vegas
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “dewy, smells amazing, will last a long time, glowy for adults”

I expected this to have just a bit more shimmer- but once I saw it in the light (as I really doesn't show up in indoor lighting) I was hooked. Not only does it smell like Spring, it basically makes wherever you put it look "young", smooth, and silky. Older skin looks drier- this makes it look dewy and young. (I'm 33, but I can tell my skin is changing)

Smells wonderful

daisyfay

I love the smell and the packaging but I find it hard to put on the skin. A lotion would work better for me.

It's ok

Blissfulaura
Location: Oceanside, CA, USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

The shimmer was too strong for my taste, but I love the scent! Which is why I decided to buy "Maybe Baby" but other than that I enjoyed using this a lot more when I was a teenager, not really anymore.

I tried it for my best friend's wedding. It's silky, smooth, smells amazing, and the most important - my boyfriend noticed the effect it gives! My legs and shoulders were realy ready for photoshoots. p.s. the package is just adorable! I'm crazy about Benefit's pots ang packs

Secret weapon for fair skin beauties

Lydia
Location: Traverese City, MI
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “glow, Smooth, light scent, unique scent, sexy”

After reading other reviews and knowing that I should either try and get a tan before my sister's wedding (I am verrry pale and I do not like to tan) and not wanting to be orange with fake tan products I decided that this should be perfect. And that's what it was, perfect. Instead of looking ghostly white, my legs looked great, with a nice glow to them. It's not shiny or oily looking at all and the scent isn't too strong either which were both things I was worried about. I would say it has about the same amount of shimmer and glow to it as the Sugarbomb box of powder. Now this will be my secret weapon for weddings and when I want to feel sexy, it is boyfriend approved including the scent.

I still love this after 12 years!

OvertheMoon4270
Location: Texas, USA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “still around!”

I have been using this for over 12 years, and i still love and use it just about everyday! I don't tan, so this is perfect for me. Plus, it smells so wonderful! They used to make a lotion with the same scent, which was my very favorite lotion! I really miss it; I really wish they would bring it back, even if it were a temporary thing, like for Christmas! (By the way,it was called Bathina for those of you who don't remember or know).


Jun 18, 2012

Love it!

KMarie

I love, love, love the scent. Wish Benefit had other products with this same scent ... body wash, lotion, etc. It is the most unique scent, amazing!

Lovely glow!

17Stars

Love that it's: “glowy, sexy”

I have very pale legs and hate tanning. I rarely wear anything that exposes my pale legs. However, this makes my legs more presentable. It gives them a healthy glow and smells 'pretty'....I don't know how to describe the scent but it's lovely. I've actually gotten the courage to expose my legs a little more since buying this. I'm trying it on my arms next. :)

Beautiful sheen, even more beautiful smell.

Katiecakes
Location: Springfield, MO, USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “beautiful, smells good”

First of all, I bought this product for a wedding I was going to in Florida. I am very fair, and I knew a tan would look unnatural but I still wanted a little glow, so I bought this. And I was very happy! I didn't look tan, because that's not what I was going for (And this product would look FANTASTIC on tanned skin by the way), I was going for a lit from within look and that's what I got. I had compliments on how glowy my skin looked. The balm added just the right amount of a golden shimmer, and I smelled like roses all night! (The scent is similar to Benetint, a sweet rosy smell.) I didn't even need perfume. It looks SO good on the décolletage. I use it on my décolletage, down the center of my shins and on the sides of my upper legs. I use it on my shoulders and collar bones. You will have a very natural, healthy glow. I highly recommend this product. Another upside, you get almost 50 grams of product. That's a lot! Worth the price.

Smells SOOO Good.

Kashefska
Location: Denver
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I noticed that some of the other reviewers mentioned how it was a little "oily", I would agree but you really do not need to use to much. A little goes a long way. When you get the tin you may think that it is to small, but when you realize how little you need to use the size does not matter. I put this on in the morning after I shower and by dinner I am still smooth. The "sheen" is very light, and the smell is delicious and sweet. A very wonderful body balm.

Love that it's: “go for it!”

This luxurious product smoothly moisturises skin, leaving a slight glimmer. Perfect for highlighting your tan, and adding that extra 'wow' factor. It has a distinctive, yet delicate floral fragrance, which is ideal, as you can still wear perfume without smelling overpowering! Tres magnifique! In the tin there is a very generous amount which lasts long. Also, the 'retro style' tin is gorgous and can be re-used once the product is gone!

ToujoursPur

Love that it's: “makes you feel sexy and fun”

Remember what a certain Hollywood Honey used to say about Chanel °5. Well, I say the same about this product. The smell is amazing, the application with the sponge feels like you're worshiping yourself and the outcome of great legs and cleavage is definitely very enjoyable. I still have the old packaging with Bathina at her dressingtable, so it goes to show how long this product lasts.

The packaging was cuter PLUS, no offense, benefit but this is the same price as body so fine. Body so fine was 110g Take A picture is 42.5g WAY TO RIP US OFF. Not cool or fair to treat customers like this. BSF was better value. Dont treat us like we're silly! Good balm though.
