Jane Iredale Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion swatches and review on BeautyJudy Summer 2014

It’s that time of year again. Bare legs require routine shaving and exposed skin becomes the thing – and it has an opportunity to shine.

Jane Iredale has launched Golden Shimmer Face and Body Lotion – a product that launched this month and is only available while supplies last – for just those right ways to glow. This lotion is a moisturizer that offers a subtle veil of shimmer designed to warm and smooth the complexion.

A tube of Golden Shimmer has 1.7 fl oz of product, and smells lightly like citrus. I’m not a huge citrus scent fan, but this doesn’t bother me because it doesn’t linger.

When you take it out of the box and twist off the cap, it’s safety sealed.

Here’s how it looks on the back of my hand – squeezed, gently rubbed in, and then blended out:

It looks a little like a lighter Nars Orgasm lotion.

I decided to test this out on my legs, as well as my face! First up, legs. Here’s a before pic:

I’m pale as anything, really.

Here we go, one leg (the right one) done up with Golden Shimmer:

A close-up of my right leg:

To be honest, you can’t tell the difference in the comparison left-right leg photo. You can see the reflecting shimmer in the close-up, though. This is definitely subtle, but nice.

Here’s both legs done:

I wore this Monday to a Memorial Day BBQ in the 80+ degree heat, although I spent most of my time indoors in the air conditioning! When I went to bed that night, I noticed my legs STILL had the shimmer on them.

I also mixed it with my Pixi H20 Skin Tint gel-textured moisturizer (review coming soon!) for some subtle shimmer on my face, the same day.

Again, you can’t really tell, but it added an extra dimension to my makeup, a very soft glow.

The features and benefits of this product include diamond dust – a unique mineral pigment from Mica, which delivers the shimmer. Pyrus maple (apple) fruit extra rejuvenates the skin with firming and smoothing. Elderflower and blackberry extracts cool and soften the skin while antioxidants green and white tea extracts protect the skin from environmental damage. Grapefruit and orange peel extracts brighten and illuminate skin, and provide the citrus scent I mentioned.

Golden Shimmer retails for $32 and can be found here on the Jane Iredale site, or at select skin care specialists and beauty apothecaries worldwide.

What do you think of this shimmer product? I really love it for my face, and arms. I think I want something with a bit more color for my pale, pale legs. I’d love to hear what you think!
