Dirty Works Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion

Dirty Works are a brand that are available in Sainsbury’s in the UK.  I’ve tried lots of their products in the past, like their pedicure accessories, Banish The Bags Eye Cream and Lift and Firm Super Skin Serum and their Blemish Buster 2 in 1 scrub and mask.  From what I’ve tried of the range so far, I can honestly say that the quality is far superior to other brands I’ve tried that are typically sold in supermarkets.  They’re high quality, great value for money and actually do what they say they’re going to do.  For me, you can’t ask any more than that.  Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying out more of a cosmetic product from them.  Something that isn’t going to change your skin in the long run but something that’s designed to make it look the best it can for that special occasion.  If you like adding a little something extra to complete your look, making your body appear flawless then you have to try this!

Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion

Dirty Works

The Dirty Works Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion is a light but bright gold shimmery lotion.  Not to be mistaken with a body butter, cream or lotion; I wouldn’t recommend this to be used solely as a moisturiser for your body as that isn’t its purpose- use this as the last step in your routine, to beautiful and perfect your skin.  It can be used all over the body, wherever you want to add a bit of shimmer.  Light, thin and almost gel like in formula, it is very quick and easy to apply and dries quickly on the skin which is perfect if, like me, you’re always rushing around before going on a night out!  It’s also lightly fragranced, like a soft, fresh perfume.

The shimmer in it is pretty subtle, it isn’t like chunky glitter so it wont make you look like a disco ball! I personally like to wear this on a night out as I find that it gives that your legs but better look, very polished and well presented.  I’d recommend applying it to your legs as it adds a gorgeous sheen, particularly down your shins. It looks gorgeous applied to your arms, shoulders and decollete too. Whilst I favour wearing this for a night out, it would also look fantastic worn during the day, perhaps with a pretty summer dress for afternoon cocktails with the girls, or even on holiday as shimmer lotions look gorgeous on sun drenched skin.

Blight It On! is photo friendly too.  I’m wearing it in the photo above and there’s no scary flash back created so you’ll still look good in photos when wearing it which is something that’s pretty important to me as I’m photographed quite a bit before I go out for my blog and when I’m out if I’m at an event.  In photos, I find that it gives that your skin but better look and in real life you can see the shimmer more, it makes your skin look flawless.  The Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion makes your skin look great whether you have a tan or not as it has a slight tint to it so it blurs imperfections and gives a slight golden tint to your skin.  In the photo above I’m not actually wearing any false tan and I still felt confident going out as I had my shimmer lotion on!  I’ve also tried using this over false and gradual tan and it looks amazing.  I can’t wait to have my birthday night out when I’m tanned to the max and wearing this- gorgeous!

The Dirty Works Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion is available from Sainsbury’s for £4.99 for a 200ml tube which will last you AGES!  Sainsbury’s often have offers on the Dirty Works products too, if you’re quick you can save 33% on the Shimmer Lotion and lots of the other products in the range- what better excuse for a haul?!  You can also check out the full Dirty Works range on their website here.
