I was recently sent a bottle of Dirty Works Bling it on Shimmer Lotion to try.
Dirty works describe it as "an illuminating lotion for shimmery sparkly skin" and that's certainly what it is!
Firstly I have to comment on how much I love the packaging with its holographic shimmer, reflecting upon the product found inside. I'm also loving the curvy 50's pin up girl!
The product itself is dispensed as a gold liquid packed full of glitter. After showering, you simply pop it on anywhere you want to show off a natural radiant glow.
A little goes a long way and gives a lovely glimmering sheen to the skin that isn’t too OTT, a more grown up approach to the glitter we may have adorned ourselves with as children. A small blob is enough to cover one arm, so at £4.99 for 200ml it’s also quite the bargain as it will last you a fair while!
One aspect I was impressed with is that this product was a gold toned shimmer, often with shimmering lotions I find they’re silvery, however I feel the gold helps give that “off-the-beach glow” and works wonders with a tan!
I wore this on Saturday night for my sisters hen do, as did my Mum and sister and we were all impressed. It’s non-sticky, doesn’t transfer onto clothes and provides a lovely subtle smell, without masking any dominant fragrances like the perfume your wearing. Definitely the perfect companion for my lovely Xen-Tan (such a tan convert now!)
All in all I was definitely impressed and would love to try more from the Dirty Works range (I've spotted they've now released beauty accessories!)
Dirty Works is available instore or online from Sainsbury's
