It smells YUMMY. Just like cranberries. Well, actually I've never smelled real cranberries, I've never even seen them. Only the Juice. But this seems to be the same scent. It even has the tartness of the cranberry scent. I also smell green apple and pear but it enhances the scent of the lotion. As far as moisturizing this stuff sinks in SO fast and leaves no trace. It's also not heavy so dry skin sufferers beware. I do wish it were a little more moisturizing though. And I with the scent would stick around longer, I would say anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour is how long it stays. Now let's talk about shimmer. It's silver and super subtle and it's definitely shimmer and not glitter. It stays on FOREVER but my only complaints are it's barely noticeable and when I do notice it I wish it were gold.
For what I payed it was definitely worth it. For full price I would probably skip it though. This should be out around Christmas again though because Body Shop made it part of their permanent Christmas line.Now I'm off to get a nice tall glass of cranberry-grape juice. YUM!!
